Get yourself sale-ready

The moving plans have been on your mind for quite some time. Perhaps you’ve even set your sights on a nice house already. But moving can be quite a hassle. And what’s sensible when selling your current home? The market is still quite tight, and before you know it, your house is sold, and you don’t have a new home yet. Temporary camping? No thanks, you’re not keen on that.


Active vs. Silent Sales

What’s wise to do? Actively offer your property for sale or stay ‘quiet’ in silent sales? And how much time should you suggest between signing the purchase and construction contracts and the actual handover? Well, you have more questions, but setting up an appointment with a real estate agent now seems too much. Maybe these are just vague plans. Do you have to schedule another appointment, and before you know it, you’re stuck in something because real estate agents are real estate agents, and they naturally want to sell. Right? So, let it be, I’ll just wait and see.

Cozy in a Tent

Silent sales and active sales both have pros and cons. You can easily read about that on countless websites. The biggest difference, of course, is the PR attention for your house, which inevitably comes with a faster selling pace. But is a quick sale of your house always wise?

Yes, of course, it’s nice if there are many interested parties for your property who are willing to pay handsomely for it. But then what? Have you already found something new for yourself? And are there also so many competitors? What if the sale and purchase are not synchronized? And then? Really in a tent? Cozy, isn’t it? Oh well, just for a few months.

Non-committal and No Frills

If you’d like to talk about this on a completely non-committal basis, then you’re more than welcome with our professional VBO real estate agents. No, not to bind you to us so that we have you ‘on board’, but really to show you what best suits your situation in a reliable, no-frills, and honest way, without empty promises. Honest advice that you can walk away from without obligations. Because although the market seems a bit more relaxed, there’s still high demand and a shortage of supply, and that can be favorable or very unfavorable in your case. So, will you move into the new dream home or will you really sit in a caravan or holiday home for half a year? Better not, right?

Get Sale Ready

So prepare yourself if you’re sure about what you want. Make sure your own agent creates a nice brochure of your current home, be active through your agent on Funda, and opt for security with a long takeover period. And if you’re not ready to sell, let us advise you to truly expand your housing options. Here, buying and selling really go hand in hand. A truly smart choice, and we’d love to help you with that.

Yes, and once again, it’s really non-committal. So don’t worry. It’s not a cunning sales pitch. We’ll call you. You’ll really become wiser and better.
