Private sale or agent? Jürgen Weiss Immobilien advises

You would like to sell your property profitably and ask yourself in this context whether a private sale or the commissioning of an estate agent is the right choice? As your experienced partner for real estate sales, we at Jürgen Weiss Immobilien in Hamburg will be happy to advise you on both sales methods.

House sale: Do it privately or hire a real estate agent?

Whoever is confronted with a house sale must clarify the question of the appropriate sales method in good time. While a private sale without the appropriate expertise can be fraught with many problems, the commissioning of an agent enables the real estate sale to proceed smoothly thanks to extensive knowledge of the industry.

Private sale: these difficulties are to be expected


A private home sale is very time-consuming and requires a great deal of expertise. It starts with the fact that you have to inform yourself comprehensively about the current market situation in the real estate sector, compare selling prices and recognize regional differences. Then there is the research and gathering of all the information and documents relevant to a house sale. Building law issues must be adequately clarified in advance and contractual documents must be notarized. You should also be able to create a convincing exposé and present it in a variety of ways. Furthermore, it is important that you are a competent negotiator, have a feeling for the right target group of buyers, do not let yourself be guided by personal emotions and have a lot of patience and perseverance. All these criteria are only the basis of a successful private sale, which can quickly overwhelm you without the necessary background knowledge.

Broker sale: industry knowledge makes the house sale easier

Hiring an experienced realtor will make your house sale easier and ensure that you can relax throughout the entire sales process. A real estate agent like Jürgen Weiss Immobilien has the necessary industry knowledge, chooses a suitable marketing strategy to sell your property, and brings the property sale to a successful conclusion.
