Your selling agent
Can we help you sell your home?
Selling your home in this day and age is not difficult. But getting the final selling price as high as possible can be quite a challenge. In addition, selling a home also involves a lot of work. An experienced sales agent can help with this tremendously!
May we take your work off your hands? At VK Makelaars we have years of experience and guarantee to get the best possible price when selling your home!
We love clear, transparent and the best results. With us, the following applies: AGREEMENT = AGREEMENT. We are a small office and not a sales factory where you will be dealing with a different employee every time. With us you get maximum personal attention and service.
And the cost? We charge fair rates which are usually below the price level of other providers.
May we visit your home? We will then record and measure your house and prepare a valuation and sales proposal for you. This is completely free and without obligation. Also, you will have seen us right away and you can judge for yourself if you have a ‘click’ with us.
Prefer to call first? No problem at all. Call or send us a message. We’d love to help you.
VK Makelaars stands for…
Clear and transparent
We like clear agreements and a transparent way of working. That way you always know where you stand and you won’t have any surprises.
Appointment = appointment
So that you can sleep with peace of mind during the buying or selling process. We make sure everything runs smoothly.
During the sale or purchase of your fine home, you don’t want to take any chances. We know better than anyone what that’s like. That’s why we take all the time needed for our clients.
Not a sales factory
We work with a limited number of houses at a time. This allows us to take all the time necessary to achieve the best.
No high start-up costs or hidden brokerage fees. We are not a price fighter, but deliver the quality you expect at a fair price.
Our working method as a sales agent
1. House survey and valuation.
We will visit you, get acquainted, measure the house, take in the features and start working out a selling proposal for you. In it you will also find our valuation and our costs for the sale.
This is, of course, entirely without obligation and free of charge. You will receive our proposal by email within approximately 2 business days. If you agree with our proposal you will receive an ‘Order for Service’ which you can easily sign digitally.
Professional photographs will be taken and the house will be measured according to the NEN2580 measurement instruction. There will also be 360-degree photos and a video tour. The latter we do partly to get a higher ranking on Funda.
If desired, we can also take a 3D tour of the house and/or record a video for social media. We are also going to gather from you all the information there is about the house. Consider the maintenance and remodeling history, defects, peculiarities, neighbors, what will and will not be sold with it, etc.
We want to get to know your home as well as we can in order to provide interested parties with the best possible information and answer any questions that may arise.
We do an in-depth analysis and research of all the information “behind the scenes. We request a soil report, dive into the building archives if necessary, scan for easements, qualitative clauses and other details and, in the case of an apartment building, we examine the entire HOA (divisional deed, minutes, MJOP, budget, etc). We make sure that we are aware of all the important issues so that we can take them into account in the sales brochure, inform viewers about them and answer questions about them.
A catchy listing text is written, all the features of your home are accurately included, the photos, video, floor plans and measurement report are processed and everything is put together into an attractive and legally watertight presentation for Funda, other home websites, social media and the sales brochure.
The house is put live on Funda.nl and other platforms (jaap.nl, huizenzoeker.nl, MVA, pararius.nl, etc). The house will also be highlighted on our website, social media and among fellow real estate agents. Seekers who have a “match” with the house will receive the house by mail.
In addition, we place an eye-catching for sale sign at the house.
We schedule viewings at times agreed upon with you. By arrangement, this can also be done in the evening or on weekends. Each viewer is shown around by us and the important features of the house and the sale are highlighted. We think along with viewers and advise them on issues such as permits, building modifications, renovations, course of action around the bidding process, the mortgage, the notary, etc. We take enough time to help every interested party, inform them well and give them sufficient opportunity to view the house in Haarlem. If we think we need to change the sales strategy, we will advise you immediately.
Viewers who have been in your house will be called by us. For example, follow-up viewings will be scheduled, all documents will be sent and all questions will be answered. We leave nothing to chance.
8. Negotiate and finalize sale
We conduct the negotiations on your behalf, in which we go for the best possible outcome at all times!
You retain control. We will present you with the bid(s) that have come in, advise you and leave the choice up to you.
If your house in Haarlem is sold, we will put all agreements neatly and watertight in a deed of sale. We will go through the sales contract with you article by article and only when everything is clear will it be signed.
9. Other ancillary matters
We are present during any building inspection and the appraiser’s visit.
We closely monitor the terms of the cooling-off period, deposit and resolutive conditions.
We check the deed of delivery and the bill of account and verify that everything is in order for the transfer.
10. Notary and conclusion.
We will accompany you during the inspection of the house, take the meter readings and make sure everything goes smoothly. Then we accompany you in the transfer of the house at the notary.
And then the moment has arrived for us to congratulate you wholeheartedly!
And….should there be any unexpected problems or questions or advice needed after the transfer, we are still here for you!
