How will we sell your house in Amsterdam?
See below an overview of the sales process of your house.
1. Professional intake of the property
Drawing attention to your property is one of the most important things in order to achieve a good sales result. The first task is the intake of your house. We will determine what the USP’s (unique selling points) are and see if there are any points of improvement. We will also give you tips and tricks on how to prepare your house for viewings.
2. Value estimation and determination of the sales price
In order to determinate the sales price, we need to estimate the current value of the property. Our estate agents are certified and therefore you can be sure that the advised estimation is accurate. This value estimation is an important part of the entire sales strategy. When determining the sales price, we take the following into account:
- The sales prices of comparable properties in the market
- The value of other pros and cons of the property
- The desired sales timeframe
3. Setting up the sales strategy
We determine the sales strategy in collaboration with you. An important part in this is the marketing campaign. We use the most modern and high quality marketing techniques. This cross media approach of online and old school ensures a distinctive presentation. Our aim is to reach the right target market. A part of the marketing campaign is is professional photography and videography. Potential buyers can even make a virtual walk through the property! We present your property on several marketing channels, among others”:
- Social media channels (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn)
- Internal network
4. The viewings
The estate agents of SEM are in charge of the viewings. We are in direct contact with potential buyers and purchase estate agents. This is an important aspect of the sales strategy and if necessary, we can adjust the strategy according the outcome and/or feedback from viewings.
5. The negotiations
The negotiations take place as soon as an offer has been put on the house. In consultation with you we will determine the right strategy to sell the house for the best price. Most likely, the potential buyers will have a purchase estate agent who will negotiate on their behalf. Your sales estate agent will negotiate on your behalf with the potential buyer or his purchase estate agent.
6. Setting up the purchase agreement
The moment that the negotiations are finalized and the offer has been accepted, we, or the notary will set up the purchase agreement. This agreement contains the terms and conditions for payment, property transfer (timeframe) as well as the resolutive conditions and any remaining details of the sale.
7. Signing and property transfer
When all the previous steps have been completed successfully, only a few tasks remain. Firstly, the property will be inspected one last time, by all parties involved, before the final transfer takes place. After that, the the deed of delivery can be signed, by all parties, in the presence of the notary and the keys will be handed over. The property is then officially delivered to its buyers and you have successfully sold your house!
