Of course you can buy or sell a property yourself, but there are some pitfalls that often only become apparent during the sale process and the legal process. As a real estate agent, our main task is to advise you as the owner, buyer or tenant in advance, free of charge and without obligation.
Selling a home made easy
It is often the case that serious and good real estate agents already have an existing customer base and can often inform some customers about the new property when the order is placed. A good real estate agent acts responsibly on behalf of the owner. If a potential buyer signals that he is interested in buying, the next step is usually to design the financing. A good real estate agent works with his partner banks and with free financiers, who accompany you through the jungle of real estate financing.
