How can you successfully sell your house? How is the sale of a house going? And at what point can you engage a broker for the optimal result? For many people, just the thought of selling your home causes a lot of stress. Especially if you also want to buy a new house. At that moment much too soon comes at you and it is often new. Because how often do you sell a house? That is why you will find below the step-by-step plan to sell your house in the best possible way.
The decisions you make during the sales process can cost you or save you a lot of money. Read the steps carefully to plan the sale as well as possible and use the smart tips!
It is not the first step you would expect in a step-by-step plan. Because perhaps it is a superfluous question to ask yourself whether it is wise to sell. In some cases, it is smarter to renovate your house. If you also want to buy a new house after the sale, there are many costs involved. So it can just be 'cheaper' not to just sell yourself.
In addition to the question of whether you should move, there are a number of questions that you should ask yourself before you go to step 2 of the step-by-step plan:
After you have made the choice to actually sell, the next step is to inform your mortgage lender. It is important that you know the amount of your current outstanding balance of the mortgage and whether there is an early repayment penalty. In addition, it is useful to find out what the current home value is worth, so that you can find out what you will have left when you pay off the remainder of the mortgage. The moment you also want to buy a new house, you have to look at what kind of mortgage you need. The financial advisor can also advise directly on this.
Temporary renting can add extra costs, but it does reduce the pressure to buy a house quickly. When you rent out temporarily, you have more time to find your perfect owner-occupied home. When the trend of the house price is down, it can be a wise choice to rent for a period, after which you get more house for your money. However, in the current housing market, this is a complicated choice. Many people want to buy a new home before selling their current home.
The moment you are sure that you want to sell your house, you need a real estate agent who will arrange the sale. At Juist Makelaar you can be sure that you will be brought into contact with the best brokers according to your preferences. Use will be made of all available data on how brokers are performing throughout the Netherlands. This way you get in touch with the two best brokers in the area!
One of the most difficult steps when selling your home is determining its resale value. You can do your own research at this step, but above all trust your sales agent. The sales strategy is related to the estimated sales price.
Tip: You don't always have to choose the broker who has the highest selling price in mind. After all, it comes down to which broker you have the most confidence in. After all, the selling price is not a guarantee that you will sell it for that price. Sometimes a sales strategy is used, in which the sales price is actually lower so that the house attracts more viewers. This way, the interest is greater and there is a greater chance of overbids.
Make sure the house looks neat. This way you not only sell your house faster, but it is also possible to sell it for a higher selling price.
Tidy up the house, make sure there is no clutter; give the house a fresh look by painting the necessary walls and fix small things in the house. Finally, you can bake an apple pie; hang a mirror for a spacious look and make sure it smells fresh. Looking for additional tips to sell your home? Then read here the 9 best selling tips!
You have received a bid or several bids, great! If you are not satisfied with the offer, you can refuse it or make a counter offer. Your sales agent will conduct the negotiations for you. If a counter offer is not accepted, it is always possible to wait for a higher offer.
The moment you accept an offer, the broker must then remove the house from the market. When you accept the offer, the purchase is not yet complete, there is a statutory cooling-off period of three working days. In addition, the conditions still need to be discussed.
You and the buyer need to agree on some important things. These are matters such as the transfer date, what the buyer wants to take over (also: the movable property), the deposit and what resolutive conditions are.
The deed of sale must be signed by both parties. After that, both parties have a statutory cooling-off period of three days. When this period has expired, the purchase is final. The moment you still want to get out of the sale, only the resolutive conditions apply.
You must move your belongings before the transfer date has passed. Before this time, you must therefore comply with all previous agreements, so that you do not have any problems with the transfer. Make sure you take enough time for this. Packing and moving your stuff always takes longer than you think. In addition, it is less stressful to do this earlier. When looking for a professional mover, be sure to compare different prices. This can be done, for example, via HomeAssist.
As soon as the statutory cooling-off period has expired and the buyer's financing has been completed, the next step can be taken. The deed of delivery can be drawn up. Before you sign this, you, together with the sales broker and the buyer, visit the house to check whether everything has been delivered as agreed. After that, the transfer takes place at the notary. Here you sign the deed of delivery and you have finally successfully sold your house!
During the signing of the transfer, the financial administration is immediately put in order. The invoice contains the amounts that you receive as a seller and that the notary will pay to various companies. After signing, you don't have to do anything else.
You are obliged to cancel your mortgage registration at the latest upon transfer. A notary must do this for you. You can do this at the notary who takes care of the transfer. If you have already paid off the mortgage, arrange that the cancellation before the transfer is arranged.

Can I also get a price list from different real estate agents?
No, because all real estate agents in the Netherlands have different working methods, it is not yet possible to send a standard list. This is partly due to various aspects, such as that you can agree performance bonuses with estate agents, as a result of which the standard commission is lower, or that you carry out a number of tasks yourself. Other reasons for not being able to give a standard price list are: the sales rankings of estate agents, the location of your home, the quality of the estate agent and extra services that estate agents offer.
