Buying or selling a property is often one of the most important transactions you will ever make, and its success requires close to a hundred brokerage acts and legal checks.
By choosing to entrust your transaction to a broker, you free yourself from all these tasks, but you also ensure that your transaction is conducted in accordance with industry standards. Your broker will take care of all the stages of your transaction, from visits to deadlines monitoring, from the relationship with other parties to legal procedures and checks.
Note that it is also possible to make an agreement with your broker to request only part of his services, we will then talk about pay-per-use services.
To sell a property, it must be displayed in order to attract the most potential buyers. Your broker will take a series of actions to maximize the visibility of your property, including:
Your real estate or mortgage broker must show the accuracy of the information he gives you by relevant documents and he is responsible for all the information he disseminates.
The market value of a property considers many factors and performing this exercise without the skills of a professional could result in a price too high or too low. If the price is too high, you risk not selling your house and if the price is below the real value, you will lose money.
