Relying on a real estate agent who’ll give a free estimation of your property offers a lot of advantages. You’ll receive an objective and detailed estimation. Therefore, the agent will measure the surface when visiting the place and he’ll analyse a series of criteria such as the location of the property, the condition of the property, its compliance with regulations etc. For the purposes of comparison, he’ll also give you the price of reals estate of the same type in your neighbourhood.
A good estimation of your property will allow you to sell it quickly and to avoid possible discussions with the buyers. So it’s important not to under- nor overestimate your property. When overestimated, a property will lose value when the owner will eventually have to lower the price, possibly even under the price advised by the brokers. So it’s very important to offer the property at a price corresponding with the real market price.
