Selling step by step

You’ve made the decision; you’re going to buy a house. When buying a house, it is important that you are well prepared. After all, you don’t buy a house every day. De Graaf van Vilsteren Garantiemakelaars will guide you through the purchase of your house in 4 steps.

Phase 1: Preparation & research

The search for your ideal home can be quite a job. How do you find the dream home that meets all your expectations at the asking price you are willing to pay? In addition to your own search through the familiar paths, a Garantiemakelaar can support you in your search for your ideal home. Because your Garantiemakelaar is aware of the latest developments in the region, has knowledge of the local housing market and has a broad network and years of experience, he can sometimes propose houses that are not yet on the market or for example in the silent sale. It’s therefore always worthwhile to register with a Garantiemakelaar. Of course, we can also guide you through the entire purchasing process. In order to search for you in the most targeted way possible, your housing profile will be established, clear agreements will be made, the purchase process will be explained and the financial possibilities will be discussed. This way you know exactly what we will do for you and what your spending limit is.

Phase 2: Viewing & comparing

Do you think you’ve found a suitable home and want to look inside? Then we plan a viewing. If you want to visit a house in the evening or on a Saturday, your Garantiemakelaar will try to make this possible. During the viewing we will gladly support you in the assessment of the house. The visual maintenance condition will be assessed and the house will be compared with other houses for sale in the area. This way you know if a realistic price is being asked for the house and you can make a well-founded choice.

Phase 3: Research & negotiation

Are you interested in buying the property? Then your Garantiemakelaar first wants to know more about the house. For example, we will look at similar houses that have been sold recently. If necessary, your Garantiemakelaar will obtain further information about the state of repair of the house and will have a cadastral survey, soil investigation and/or technical inspection carried out. This way, as a potential buyer of the house, you will not be confronted with unpleasant surprises. By taking a realistic view of the asking price and a rational approach to the negotiations, your Garantiemakelaar knows how to get the best out of the negotiations. It goes without saying that you will be kept up to date on the state of affairs at all times during the negotiations.

Phase 4: Transfer & after the sale

When you have bought your dream home, we focus on a correct and smooth handling. So that the delivery, transfer and legal settlement run smoothly. We draw up the purchase contract or check the document if the selling real estate agent has drawn it up. A Garantiemakelaar is only satisfied with the purchase if you are also satisfied. This means that your Garantiemakelaar will also be ready for you after the purchase of your home.
