I want to sell my house. What should I do first?
Having an appraisal (audit) will give you the real value of your real estate and will make you more knowledgeable about your property during the sale. By having an appraisal, you will have information about all kinds of technical and structural features of your house and use them when legally required.
There are two ways to sell a house. You will either sell your house by yourself, with advertisements from various channels, show it to customers, or you will make a deal with a real estate agent and leave the job of finding customers to him. First of all, you need to decide which of these two ways you want to choose. If you do not have a problem or time constraint in terms of time and dealing with customers, you can choose to sell yourself. But if you say you don’t have the time or patience, it may be better to deal with a reliable real estate agent who knows your neighborhood and the environment well.
After appraising, set your final price. If the real estate market, which is affected enough by the economic situation, is in good shape when you sell, you can overestimate your price by around 10%. In a bad real estate market, the price must be the real value.
Determine the value of your home when you decide how to sell it. If you work with a realtor, he or she can assist you in appraising. If you are going to do it yourself, you can look at how many similar houses around you are selling and decide. You should also see the condition of your home as a factor that increases or decreases the price. After finding customers…
After the customer is found, you should get the no debt paper from the municipality. This paper is a document stating the current price of your house and proving whether the house has debt or not. When this paper is received, an application is made to the land registry cadastre. In this application, buyer and seller identity, photograph, municipality paper, power of attorney and deed if necessary should be available. A few hours after the application, you will be called for the transfer process. Before that, you must pay the tuition fee. The fee is calculated at a certain rate from the current market price of the house.
You will be asked whether you received your money during the transfer process. If you say yes to complete the transaction without taking your money, you will have transferred the house to someone else for free. Before the transfer, make sure that the money is in your hand or in your account.
