Tips for private sale

Tip 1: Avoid common mistakes

The sale of real estate involves a number of risks that we have summarized briefly and concisely for you.

  • Missing documents
    • Compilation of all important documents: dimensioned floor plans, living area calculation, land register extract etc., if necessary declaration of division, Abgeschlossenheitserklärung of condominiums
    • Energy certificate obligation. Violations will be punished with fines.
  • Wrong price assessment
    • Detailed market analysis: If the price is too low, you give away money. If you set the price too high, you scare off potential buyers and risk that your property becomes a slow seller.
  • Estimation of the duration of the sale
  • Correct timing: If you have misjudged the time period for the sale, pressure could be incurred due to relocation to a new property. In addition, you have a bad negotiating position then.
  • Lack of accessibility
    • Do you have enough time besides your job to answer calls, e-mails and inquiries from interested parties and process them promptly?
  • Do not raise false expectations
    • Describe your property as neutral and unemotional as possible and avoid subjective assessments.

Tip 2: Good planning increases the sales success!

Good planning is half the battle, set your goals.

  • What does your target group look like?
  • How should the property be advertised?
  • Which selling price would you like to reach?
  • How do you ensure your accessibility?
  • What documents should be available?

These and other questions should be clarified before the launch so that there is no rude awakening.

Tip 3: Invest a few hours!

  • Do you clean up the object before starting to sell, can you set up small decorative items?
  • The purchase decision usually falls through the "actual state", not by the question: "What could arise from this?"
  • Taps should be checked before the visit.
  • Clean bathrooms sell houses!
  • Pictures are important! In any case, you need a good camera, attractive lighting and a good photo editing program.

  • Advertise on all possible platforms!
  • Beware of sales and rental tourism!
