WHY HIRE A REAL ESTATE AGENCY
There are some people that sometimes feel that a real estate agency is not worth hiring, well here are 8 points to the contrary:
1. AGENTS ARE BUFFERS
This way you don’t have to deal with numerous buyers and doing visits and answering the same questions over and over again.
2. PRICE EXPECTATIONS
Selling a home privately don’t necessarily mean you’ll be saing the money because when a buyer purchases a home directly from the owner they expect a much lower price than the rest of houses listed with agencies.
3. HIGHER EXPOSURE
When listing with an agency you take advantage of much higher exposure of your home to a higher number of clients through all the paid portals we list on.
4. MARKET CONDITIONS INFORMATION
Since the Spanish market is a slow one, it is good to have an understanding of what them arket looks like and what you can expect from the buyers. This infromation is easily accessible for you through an agency such as ours.
We have a large network of collaborators who bring us client when they can not find something they are looking for which again means bigger audience for your home and higher probability to sell it.
6. NEGOTIATION SKILLS & CONFIDENTIALITY
If you’re faced with a difficult client or some difficulties in the sales process of your home it can be very helpful to have an agency doing the negotiations on your behalf rathen than having to deal with it yourself.
7. HANDLING THE PAPERWORK
The paperwork of a sale can sometimes be overwherlming especially if your buyers speaks a different language. Having to organize the notaries, and also handling the downpayment transactions are made eaier by the agent since you can rely on them holding the buyer acountable.
8. ANSWERING QUESTIONS AFTER CLOSING
Once you sell your home the buyer will most definitely have many questions like: how do I change the gas, water or electricity bill? Who can help me take care of the grass? How are the spanish land tax paid? How do we fix these doors/leaks etc… If you chose to sell privately all the post sale questions will come directly your way. You can easily avoid this by listing with an agency.
