Are you thinking of selling your home in Malta? If so, how do you know which real estate agency to list it with? Or even if listing it with an agency is the right thing to do? When it comes to selling your property in Malta, there’s a lot to take into consideration. Selling your house in Malta is not like selling your old iPhone on Malta Park. You can’t just advertise it and hand it over to the first person who offers you some cash. Selling a home in Malta is a lot more complicated than that. There’s so much to take into consideration and, let’s not disregard the fact that selling your home in Malta is actually a lot of work!
A real estate agency might take a small percentage of the sale in commission. But that 5 or 6% in commission is nothing compared to the extra money that an agent can get you for your property. As a matter of fact, by listing your property with a real estate agency, as opposed to selling it privately, you could get up to 20% more! Not to mention all of the hard work they do, which in turn gets taken off your hands. If you list your property with an agency, your real estate agent will:
-Help you get an accurate valuation on your Malta property;
-Market and advertise your property;
-Organise and carry out the viewings and open houses;
-Find the right buyer and confirm they are serious;
-Handle negotiations and contracts; and so much more.
No one knows the property market better than a real estate agent. If you were to try and determine the value of your home by yourself, you might not give it an accurate valuation. For example, you could seriously underestimate how much your property is worth and lose out on a lot of money. You also might ask too much, and then really struggle to sell it. Remember that it’s not about what your house is worth to you. No matter how much money, time, blood, sweat and tears you might have invested in it! A real estate agent will take the emotion out of it and give you an accurate valuation, based on the current property market in Malta.
In the matter of marketing your property to potential buyers, a real estate agent knows best. If you choose to try and sell your house in Malta privately, you might make a list of the top qualities that you think your property has. However, what you like about your home might not necessarily be what buyers are looking for. Just because you like the tiling (or you spent a lot of money on it), it doesn’t mean you need to list this as a selling point. Your real estate agent will know what buyers are looking for. After all, they are the ones who buyers turn to when they’re looking for a new home. Your agent will find the true selling points of your property and market it accordingly.
Once your property is on the market, potential buyers will want to organise a time when they can come and view it. Not many people are willing to buy a house in Malta or invest in property without seeing it first. Organising viewings can be a bit of a pain. This is especially the case if you work. When your property is listed with a real estate agency in Malta, they will take care of this for you. You can simply give your trusted agent the key and let them organise the viewings and conduct them when you’re not home. Your real estate agent is the one who will be taking all the calls, answering buyers’ questions and conducting the viewings. This way, selling your house doesn’t have to take over your whole life!
The large majority of buyers choose to go through an agency. When you choose to sell privately, you’ll be losing out on all of those potential buyers. That’s yet another reason why it pays to go with a real estate agency. It also pays to go with the right one. A good real estate agency, like Zanzi Homes, looks after its clients well. A real estate agency who takes care of its existing clients will attract more and, as a consequence, get you more potential buyers for your property.
