Independent Property Acquisition

You are looking for your dream house or just found it ..

But do you need a buyer’s agent to buy it?   

You have seen a house or apartment on Funda.nl (the leading website for property for sale) and arranged a visit. In almost all cases, you have to deal with the estate agent of the seller’s agent. This agent has to get the best price and make other arrangements for the seller and is generally not concerned to inform you about your rights and obligations as a buyer. Therefore it is quite possible that you overlook some important matters or you might agree on an inflated price. Enough reasons to contact a buyer’s agent.. jemakelaar.nl in order to achieve:

– A realistic purchase price (negotiations)

– Clarity of the structural condition (inspection)

– Legal aspects (research)

Know that the first offer is of great importance for the negotiations and is largely based on our knowledge and experience in this field.

Use the contactform or contact us by phone (070-364 19 63) in order to make an appointment for an orientation meeting or a viewing of a property with ‘jemakelaar’ without any obligations. After a viewing we give our first opinion on the asking price and maintenance of the dwelling. If you want to continue the purchase process after, we can guide you from start to finish on a ‘no win no fee’ basis at an attractive rate.

What we do as a independent property acquisition agent for you as potential buyer

Professional negotiation of price and terms
(Our fee is directly linked to the negotiated results. Therefore, we will strive for the lowest possible purchase price and the best conditions)
Investigation: area plans – soil pollution – oil storage tanks – legal aspects
We can arrange an independent structural survey. Results can also be used for the mortgage application.
In case of an apartment, much attention is given to the owners association (VvE)
The deed of purchase is checked for accuracy and particular clauses
The draft of the deed of transfer is checked
On the day of transfer we are present at the inspection of the property
On the day of transfer we are present at the notary office to solve unexpected problems
We are also there to answer your questions during and and after the purchase of the property

Rates

A basic fee of € 595 plus 7 percent of the difference between asking price and purchase price. 

Example: The asking price for an apartment is € 189.000
As a result of our negotiation the property is purchased for € 176,000 (difference € 13.000)
Our Fee in this case: € 595 (basis) +€ 910 (7% over € 13.000) = total € 1505 + v.a.t.
Your financiel advantage in this case is about € 11.300

No cure no pay

If the purchase, for any (legitimate) reason is cancelled, you owe us nothing except costs for a structural survey if has taken place.

FAQ.

I found a nice property on internet . How do I proceed? >  Arrange  a viewing with the estate agent of the seller. Are you still excited after your visit? Please get in touch with us to arrange a second visit.

By the description and pictures I am almost certain that I want to buy a property. >  In such a situation we will accompany you on the first visit. Please get in touch with us to arrange a visit.

If  ‘jemakelaar’ does not get anything off the asking price .. What are the costs? > If you buy for the askingprice (or more..) you pay the basic fee; € 595 excl. VAT + 185 , – excl. VAT for the structural survey  (if has taken place ofcourse)

 I found a nice house, but the price is a little too high considering my financial possibilities. Can we agree upon a maximum purchase price and what are the costs if you do not succeed to buy for the agreed maximum price?> Yes, it is possible to make such agreement (of course within reasonable limits ) If we are not able to buy for this maximum price (and the sale doesn’t continue) no fee will be charged.

Is there a better chance of success if I switch to a purchasing estate agent to purchase a property? > With a purchase estate agent you always have a better chance of a good outcome because the estate agent of the seller takes a colleague always more serious than an individual AND an estate agent of the seller represents only the interests of the seller / owner!

The purchase does not continue because a lot of unexpected matters came to light during the structural survey. > In this case you are only charged for structural survey (185 , – excl. VAT) if has taken place.

Is the structural survey a regular part of your purchase procedure? > If the property is about 8 years old or younger a structural survey is unnecessary in general. It may happen that there is already an structural survey report available.

I think the funding won’t be a problem, but I’m not hundred percent sure. > When you give us the assignment to purchase a property, we assume that you know or calculated what your financial possibilities are.

What does a Structural Survey Look At?

A structural survey will pick up a wide range of property related problems such as:
-Damaged or removed lintels
-If any supporting walls have been altered or moved
-Presence of hazardous materials (e.g. asbestos) that may need to be removed professionally
-Damp related issues such as dry rot or rising damp
-Evidence of woodworm or other insect infestations
-Problems with the roof
-Rotten or damaged window frames
-Damage to brick or stonework (e.g. frost damage)
-Evidence of subsidence or land-slip
-Poor plumbing, electrical work or insulation
-Possible areas of concern (e.g. party wall issues)
