How can I best sell my house?

A frequently asked question we often hear: How can I best sell my house? The answer starts with choosing a real estate agent. Of course, you can try to sell your house yourself, and in this day and age, there is certainly a chance of success. However, an agent who does this day in and day out often has the expertise to reach potential buyers in a unique way and can advise you on what to do and what not to do to achieve the best result. While it may be tempting to save money by not hiring an agent, this can ultimately come at the expense of your proceeds.

What does it cost to sell a house?

When you decide to sell your home through a real estate agent, you will receive a commission invoice. This invoice includes costs for, among other things, taking photographs, measuring the square footage, and an advertisement, all of which are included in the price. Additionally, there may be costs for obtaining a (new) energy label. If there is still a mortgage on the property, costs may arise at the transfer of ownership for repaying the remaining mortgage amount. Read more about the real estate agent fees.

    How can I sell a house for the highest price?

    To sell a house for the highest possible price, it is crucial to ensure the property is in excellent condition and spotlessly clean. This might include replacing a rusty shower hose and giving the walls a fresh coat of paint, perhaps in a modern color like light beige. Additionally, it’s essential to present the home optimally during viewings and in photos. This often means removing excess items and creating a stylish, chic interior. Sometimes, hiring a staging company can be advisable. A good real estate agent with a broad reach and network also helps. Aland has a large reach among real estate agents and on social media, with multiple channels and many followers.

    ✅ Measure the property according to NEN2580. This is a standardized method for measuring the area of a building according to specific guidelines, ensuring consistency and accuracy in the measurement.

    ✅ Request an existing energy label via Mijn overheid. If your energy label has expired or energy-saving measures have been implemented, have it updated. Someone will come by to inspect the property and then send a new report.

    ✅ The deed of ownership, an excerpt from the land registry, the energy label, building plans, and any permits for renovations or extensions must be collected. Warranty certificates and certifications for completed renovations or installations (such as a new central heating boiler) are also important, as well as documents from the Homeowners’ Association (VVE).

    ✅ A professional photoshoot and video recording are essential in selling a property. Beautiful visual content helps to pique potential buyers’ interest in the property, thereby increasing the likelihood of a successful sale.

    ✅ A thoughtful and compelling sales text can highlight the unique features of the property, such as its location, layout, and distinctive characteristics. The aim is to arouse the interest of potential buyers and excite them about scheduling a viewing.

    ✅ Promoting the sale of a property on Funda and social media is crucial for reaching a wide audience. Funda is the place where potential buyers search for their dream home, and listing a property there is essential. We also see that social media can be an important link.

    ✅ It is essential to carefully examine offers, as the highest bid may not always be the most suitable to accept. Bidders sometimes retract their offers, making it important to act quickly and appropriately to keep potential alternative bidders engaged. In addition to price, the terms of the offer are also important.

    ✅ A sales agreement is necessary. Drafting such an agreement requires knowledge and experience with legal jargon. Never sign an agreement without understanding its contents. It is risky to download and send an agreement yourself if you do not fully understand what it entails. The consequences of ambiguity can be significant.

    ✅ A final inspection is incredibly important. There may have been changes in the property. Is there no running water, are there leaks, or are squatters living there? During an inspection, hidden defects may become apparent. Perhaps not all furniture has been removed either. A real estate agent can help you navigate such unpleasant situations.
