Preliminary investigation of the sale of a house As soon as you want to sell your home, a sales agent will come by. A sales broker at Van de Steege Makelaarsgroep first conducts a preliminary investigation. The details of your home from the Land Registry are studied and the sales agent examines the prices of equivalent homes in your area. In this way, the current market, the location and value-enhancing aspects are effectively taken into account. During the introductory meeting, the sales agent also checks the state of maintenance of the home. This preliminary research helps determine the ultimate sales strategy for your home.
Introductory meeting to sell your home During the introductory meeting you will discuss your wishes for selling your home together with the sales agent. A careful value judgment is also given during the introductory meeting. This takes into account, among other things, the current market, the location and the structural condition. Value-increasing aspects are also included, such as an extension or new bathroom. Other points we will discuss are: The current housing market; The best strategy for selling your home; The desired speed for the sale of your home; The optimal asking price for your home; And the expected sales proceeds. The Van de Steege Sales Agent always determines the asking price together with you as the seller. This is part of the sales strategy that you choose with your sales broker and is not fixed. Depending on the market, the asking price for your home can therefore be adjusted at a later date.
Putting a house up for sale Our sales agents do everything they can to ensure that your home is sold as quickly as possible at the best price. Sales brokers at Van de Steege Makelaarsgroep know exactly how the housing market works and can therefore advise you on the right steps to take. An important step is of course the photography of your home. With the right photos you attract more buyers and so the chance of a better selling price of your home is increased. That is why we pay attention to the photography of your home.
Our specialized photographer provides professional photos with which we interest more potential buyers and persuade them to make an appointment for a viewing. When the photos are ready, you as a seller get the chance to look through the application. Do you agree? Then we can register the property for sale! The Van de Steege 'For sale' sign is placed, Magic 50 (the neighborhood mailing) is distributed and your home is put up for sale on a number of effective channels, such as Funda, Roxxle and our own website.
Planning and executing viewings for your home The sales brokers at Van de Steege not only put your home up for sale, but also actively sell it. Organizing more than 100 viewings is the rule rather than the exception. The last person to view may just be the buyer with the best offer. And that's what we, as a sales broker, aim for. As a real estate agent you want to be sure that you can get the most out of the sale of your home.
The broker will inform you when a viewing is planned. You do not have to stay at home for this, the real estate agent has the key and guides interested parties through your home. In fact, it is better not to be present at the viewing. An interested e can move more freely through the house and feels less burdened to make (critical) comments. This is useful information that the broker can immediately respond to during the viewing. Afterwards you will be told how the viewing went.
Negotiate the best selling price As soon as potential buyers want to make an offer on your home, a new phase begins. In an overheated housing market, it can be a storm. As a sales broker it is important to distinguish between bids and interested parties. The sales broker at Van de Steege advises you extensively about this and conducts contact and negotiations with potential buyers. These negotiations for the sale of your home are not only about the amount of the offer, but also about the associated conditions. For example, some buyers guarantee more security than others. Ultimately, it is up to you whether or not you agree with the offer for your home.
Drawing up and signing the deed of sale As soon as you and the buyer agree on the purchase price and the conditions, the sales broker will draw up the purchase contract. The Van de Steege sales broker ensures that all personal data of you and the buyer and all agreements made are correctly entered in the contract and sends this for verification. Is everything right? Then the sales broker will schedule an appointment to sign the purchase contract for the sale of your home. Keep in mind that your home must have a definitive energy label when it is sold. Your sales agent will be happy to help you arrange this. On to the final phase of the sale of your home!
Final inspection and key transfer For the key transfer, the Van de Steege Makelaarsgroep sales broker will make an appointment with you and the buyer for the final inspection. This is a tour of the home to check that everything is in the condition as agreed at the time of the sale of your home. The sales agent is also present. Once everything is in order, you can finally sign at the notary. Congratulations on the sale of your home!
