Questions to ask your Marbella Real Estate AgentJanuary 12th 2016 | by Ginés García
When looking to picking the right real estate professional is a key decision. You need someone who knows the market intimately, listens to you, addresses your concerns and will answer your questions in an ethical and professional manner. In order to help you in your property search we have come up with a way to sort the serious from the less professional ones.
Where should I buy a home?
People who live in the area may know exactly where they want to purchase their new villa or apartment in Marbella, but those who are based further afield may need some help. This is where selecting the right Agent with local knowledge is vitally important.
The requirements of a family with young children can be quite different from those of a retirement age couple or someone looking for a holiday home. Nevado Realty has the experience gained over more than 20 years in the Marbella property market to help you find the ideal home in an area that is right for you.
What is included in the sale?
An assumption should not be made that the property will come fully furnished. Ask your if items such as those top quality kitchen appliances are included in the price. If not, can a separate offer for furniture and appliances be made?
How soon can you move in?
Your estate agent should be able to tell you if the property is available for immediate occupation or if a sale is dependent on them finding a new home first. Delays caused by buyers’ chains can be frustrating, so a clearly set out timescale can be important.
What is the history of the house?
It is good to know the age of a property and when any upgrades or renovations have been done. If it is an older property, ask if it has been re-wired recently and if there have been any structural problems. An ethical agency such as Nevado Realty will always give a straightforward answer to your questions.
Why the price?
Whilst ultimately the asking price is the decision of the seller, a good agent will have their own idea of the value of a property and should be able to explain why a particular figure has been arrived at. Nevado Realty has the experience, qualifications and know how to provide a professional valuations service and to advise sellers on a realistic price to set.
