Hiring a sales agent for the sale of a home is not mandatory in the Netherlands. However, it is not that simple, because you have to meet all the requirements set by law and you still want the highest sales yield. Selling your home is therefore a lot of challenging work. NVM Metropool Makelaars specializes in this and takes all the work off your hands. We do this at a competitive rate to do the work as professionally and efficiently as possible for you.
What is involved in selling a home without a real estate agent?
Research the market value
First of all, you will have to estimate a market-based value of your home. For example, you should take into account the state of maintenance, the location in the neighborhood and surrounding homes that are also for sale. In other words; all factors play a role. A good investigation into the market value of your home should form the basis of the asking price. After all, you do not want to sell the house too cheaply.
A correct description of the property
Your home needs to be brought to the attention. A good advertisement text describes your home vividly but also very precisely. Potential buyers choose whether or not to come by, partly on the basis of the text. If the text does not correspond to reality, potential buyers will turn away disappointed. An actual buyer can even hold you liable.
Take good pictures or have them taken
Time to tidy up and clean the house. You have a photographer who is willing to portray the house or you get to work with the camera yourself. Make sure the photos are attractive and give a realistic impression of the home. Don’t forget to include the area in the photo report and conclude with floor plans of the house.
Instagram, Facebook en LinkedIn
Now the photos and text still have to be brought to the attention of social media. Do you have enough digital friends who want to help you by sharing your message online on Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn? It is important to know that without a real estate agent you cannot independently place an advertisement on Funda, the largest housing site in the Netherlands.
Show potential buyers around
You did it: viewers are coming! You will receive them warmly and speak to them personally. It is important to keep the information professional, despite the fact that it is your beloved home. Moreover, everything you say about the house must be correct so that no ambiguities can arise afterwards. These are intensive days, but bids are coming in and that’s important.
Which offer do you accept?
Are you confident enough that the offer is a realistic price for your home and are the conditions right? Consider, for example, how the buyer will finance the home. Then you can accept the offer and the paperwork begins.
Prepare purchase deed
The official paperwork is about to begin: the deed of sale must be drawn up. An official document that regulates the transfer of real estate between you as the seller and the buyer of your home. A document that therefore has a legal status. If something is not correct or contains errors, this has major consequences.
Hire a sales broker?
If you have read everything, you know that selling a home is a profession and requires a lot of time, knowledge and experience. It is also questionable whether selling yourself will ultimately yield you a better deal, regardless of the support and liability consequences.
