Selling a Property Directly is Complicated
There are many reasons why selling a property can be daunting for property owners, resulting in frustrating hours spent in the process, especially if you are unsure of the necessary actions that need to be taken. With many people leading busy lives, they often do not have the time to dedicate to all of the administration and procedures necessary to complete the sale. Some tasks can only be negotiated by professionals and this is where ALGATUR can make life simple and ease you through the sale of your property.
A lot of time can be wasted on people only casually interested in the property. The type of people you will meet along the way will either be genuine or just time wasting. It is important to identify those people who are interested in the property and those who are not. ALGATUR has a great deal of experience recognising the genuine clients on your behalf and can negotiate the many hurdles before a sale or purchase is complete.
Whether during the purchase or sale of a property, you will meet:
- The Buyer – who wants to buy the property at the lowest possible price.
- The Buyer’s Lawyer.
- Timewasters – they have no intention of buying the property and just want to view to pass the time.
- The property owner’s bank manager will usually deal with home loans for modifications and selling arrangements.
- Real estate agents who want to sell your property at any cost. This can end up losing you money as your property may be worth more and the real estate agent just wants a quick sale.
These types of people do not have time to dedicate their services to an individual and may not have the best interests of the buyer or seller at heart.
With ALGARTUR, you are more likely to sell your property at a better price since our focus is marketing properties through our exclusive channels abroad, reaching customers with greater purchasing power.
