How to compare real estate agencies in Fuerteventura before hiring one

5 things to consider when comparing real estate agencies in Fuerteventura before choosing one to sell your property.

One of the keys to success when selling a property is choosing the right real estate agent. It will depend, to a great extent, not only on achieving the sale of the property, but also on doing it in a shorter period of time and for a price according to the market reality.

However, choosing the best real estate is not always easy. If we publish an advertisement of a property for sale in Fuerteventura in a private way, we will be immediately called by different agencies eager to take care of the operation. But how to choose one?

How to choose the best real estate agency in Fuerteventura

To choose the best real estate in Fuerteventura is necessary to compare what each of them can offer us as owners in order to estimate what I can achieve. Thus, some of the most important aspects to analyze are: fees, valuation of the property, marketing plan, resources and reputation.

1. How much does it cost me?

In other words, what fees will the chosen real estate agency in Fuerteventura charge me for the services I am going to hire?

As of today, there is no specific legislation regarding real estate sales commissions, so each real estate agency is free to establish the price it deems appropriate for its services rendered. Despite this, when comparing real estate agencies in Fuerteventura it is convenient to make a small analysis of the fees charged by each company because, sometimes, the fees charged exceed the market average in the area, something that does not always translate into higher quality services.

2. How much money can I reach

If we were to ask all the real estate agencies operating in an area to value our property, it is very likely that each of them would offer us a different starting price. This is a very common occurrence. Keep in mind that the market price of a property is a range and not an exact value, so there may be small discrepancies between the starting price established by one and the starting price established by another.

However, these price discrepancies can reach up to 15% of the value of the property in some cases. Faced with this situation, how do I know what the real price of my home is? How do I determine the most appropriate one among the different estimated selling prices?

When comparing real estate agencies in Fuerteventura, it can be very tempting to go with the one that offers the highest starting price. However, this choice may not be the most cost-effective since if we set the starting price too highIn this case, it is possible that the property will take longer to be sold, causing the property to burn in the market and, therefore, having to resort to continuous price reductions that finally make our property sell for a price lower than its real price.

Valuation of the property

When choosing a real estate agency based on the price valuation of our property, it is not advisable to choose the agency that offers the highest valuation, but rather to choose the one that offers the best price for our property. the agency that is able to best justify that exit price based on: sales prices of similar properties in the area, characteristics of the property, market trends and, of course, your experience in similar transactions.
