We care about your property and we are very clear from the first moment on what we will do over time in order to lead you to the sale of your house. The assignment, which can be exclusive or free, contains all the conditions of the sale: price, terms and conditions for the payment of the deposit and the balance, description of the property, services used for marketing, conditions and brokerage fee. The term of the assignment is determined together and we advise you how long it takes to lead you to the sale depending on the type your property.

The sale

A) Purchase offer.
It is the first phase of the sale: when the customer decides to buy will make his proposal official through a document prepared by our Legal Office in which he will make his proposal to purchase your property. This proposal will contain the economic offer, the time in which you will conclude the sale, the means of payment. To formalise the proposal, it will be accompanied by a check or bank transfer as a deposit.

B) Preliminary agreement.
The preliminary agreement regulates the agreements for the signing of the final contract namely the deed of sale (deed), which, once stipulated, completes the process of buying and selling the property. This is an agreement signed between the parties in which the buyer undertakes to pay by a certain date the amount established for the purchase of the property, anticipating a sum of the total. You, on the other hand, will force yourself not to commit to anyone else and to deliver the property free, ready for the buyer access at the time of the final balance.

C) Registration of the preliminary agreement.
We will take care of making the mandatory registration with the Revenue Agency, within 30 days of signing up for acceptance.

D) The deed of sale.
With this act, which is stipulated before the notary, the transfer of ownership from the seller to the buyer occurs. The notary will carry out a general inspection of the property and draw up a contract that will be definitive and that will contain mandatory elements by law:

Brokerage fee of the agency

90% of our business is with foreign customers: it is necessary to have continuous contacts and relationships with lawyers and attorneys who assist the customer which is extremely expensive. The marketing we provide to the owner-seller is of maximum level taking care of the details of both the photos, the floor plans and the presentation of the area where the property is placed. In addition, the search commits our technicians to provide the potential buyer with a correct and complete legal pack. This allows the owner-seller to fasten the timing of the sale of their property by expanding the showcase from the local to international market with a significant flow of foreign customers that among other things have no problem of financing for the purchase. All this imposes on our agency different commissions for the owner-seller, both as calculation and as an amount but we believe correct for the type of service that we offer and, above all, for the success that we get from our promotional campaigns that end with the sale of the property entrusted to us, in faster times than average:

  • property value from € 50,000 to € 70.000 (Euro 5,500 including VAT)

  • property value from € 100,000 to € 300,000 (6% + VAT)
