Selling real estate in 12 steps on the basis of our tested method
Selling real estate with the help of Ljubljana Real Estate agency ensures the biggest profit possible with least effort. A reliable and professional procedure is carried out in 12 basic steps, stated below.
Selecting a real estate agent
At first glance, selecting a real estate agent seems as a very simple task, but as a matter a fact, only the right one can bring gratifying results. Too often, the real estate agent is selected by the wrong reasons: because s/he is our relative, acquaintance, s/he does not charge commission etc. Selling real estate is too demanding to pick the appropriate real estate agent only on the basis of criteria, stated above. Imagine you were a sportsman and you would select your physician, say a knee specialist, based on similar criteria. Would you go and see an acquaintance that has only started his/her own business and has no experience of whatsoever? Or would you go to see a friend that works in some orthopaedic clinic? Would you consider visiting the first doctor you find on the internet? Those of you who seek quality services and want to make the most of the time you spent for you real estate, would probably select a specialist with long history of experience in the field of healing knee injuries. Selecting a real estate agent is no different.

Making a contract
The contract can be prepared by our lawyer that specializes in real estate business. The contract is then sent or delivered to all clients for inspection and its content harmonised until the final signing takes place.

We shall prepare and fill out all the documentation necessary for the tax bureau, tax payment and contract certification at the notary's office. Notary certified contract is kept at the notary's or at Ljubljana Real Estate as arranged beforehand.
