Struggling to find the right property? Speak to an estate agent!

Every week, you despairingly pore over the property ads in all the newspapers and on all the relevant websites. But it’s as if the market has completely dried up. In this kind of situation, what can you do to still find a suitable property? Commission a good, local estate agent to search on your behalf! As a registered customer, you will be exclusively informed about suitable properties before the estate agent advertises them online.

People searching for properties are currently having a very hard time of it in many cities and regions. The right kinds of property for sale are few and far between. And when the occasional suitable property does come along, you can be sure that a whole crowd of other potential buyers have already beaten you to the chase. So in this kind of situation, what are the benefits of commissioning an estate agent to search on your behalf?

  1. 1. Find out sooner than the competition about properties for sale

Im Bestand eines Profi-Maklers befinden sich in der Regel nicht nur die Immobilienangebote, die er auch auf seiner Webseite und in Suchportalen anbietet. Es gibt weitere Objekte, die off-market gehandelt werden, also ohne jemals in öffentlichen Vermarktungskanälen sichtbar zu werden. Ferner sind Makler ständig mit der Akquise neuer Objekte beschäftigt. Ihr beruflicher Erfolg  beruht nicht unwesentlich darauf, dass sie häufig als Erste Kenntnis von zum Verkauf stehenden Immobilien erlangen. Durch Ihren Suchauftrag an einen Makler verschaffen Sie sich einen Vorsprung: Neu akquirierte Immobilien, die mit Ihrem Suchprofil übereinstimmen, wird er zuerst Ihnen anbieten. So haben Sie die Chance, Immobilien zu besichtigen, von denen andere Interessenten noch gar nichts wissen können. Haben Sie Ihr Traumhaus gefunden, können Sie sofort zuschlagen und den Verkäufer mit einem angemessenen Preisangebot überzeugen. Sie verstehen jetzt sicher, warum viele Immobilienangebote gar nicht erst bis in die Immobilienportale gelangen: sie sind schon vorher weg.

  1. 2. Gain a clear understanding of your own search criteria

In order to conduct a focused search for suitable properties, the estate agent needs exact specifications from you – they need to know what features are essential in your new property, which are particularly desirable, and which are deal-breakers. Formulating your search request is an opportunity for you to gain a more precise understanding of what you require from your new home. The key search criteria of course also include the (maximum) purchase price you can afford to pay. You should also know how you are going to finance the purchase and, in a best-case scenario, have a financing agreement issued to you that you can send to the estate agent together with your search request. This way, you will impress on the estate agent that you are a serious potential buyer and underscore the urgency of your intention to purchase.

  1. 3. Remove the stress and risk from your property search

When you commission an estate agent to search for suitable properties on your behalf, you save yourself both the hassle of time-consuming research on property portals and the at-times frustrating competition against other potential buyers. You thereby reclaim time for more important matters, such as securing the financing for your new property. You only pay the estate agent commission if they are successful in their task, i.e. when you have actually signed a purchase contract. So if the estate agent is unable to find the right property for you, you assume no risk whatsoever.
