If you would like to sell your property abroad - whether it is a holiday or a permanent home - the question of how to do it arises: Do you sell through a local realtor, a Danish real estate agent, or should you skip the realtors completely and sell your property yourself? It's basically a question of what is most effective, the costs involved and what matches your own temperament and overall situation.
Choosing an estate agent If you have bought your home through a local realtor, it would be natural to start by taking a discussion with them – are they still active in the area? – which properties are they currently selling? - and what fee will they charge you for the sale? If you have noticed other brokers in your local area, make sure to have a similar discussion with.
If you bought your foreign property as newly built or off plan, it's usually not an option to sell through the same broker, because it is usually the provider's own sales organization or a broker specializing in newly constructed projects and not very good at resale properties.
One or more brokers In Denmark we are accustomed to exclusive distribution agreements - that you as the seller only agree with one broker to sell your home. In many countries - for instance Spain - it is different. Here it is common to enter into non-exclusive distribution agreements, meaning that your property is for sale through 2, 3 or more brokers. This of course means that there are several different brokerage firms engaged in your sale in parallel, but it also means that the broker fee is higher. Note that the estate agents in these countries often want to enter into an exclusive agreement and in this case you should be able to negotiate a lower fee.
Selling through a Danish broker In some parts of the world, there are Danes who have established themselves as local real estate agents. This means that they operate according to local rules but whether they have the Danish real estate education varies from person to person, Being able to contract with a broker who speaks Danish, is obviously a big advantage for most people.
It is also theoretically possible to choose a Danish estate agent, but in reality there are virtually no agents in this country, who undertakes selling individual houses or apartments located abroad. This is due to Danish regulations, which states that Danish agents must follow all the same rules as for a Danish property and this is virtually impossible due to the differences in the markets.
Finding a Danish buyer RobinHus enables you to find Danish buyers directly – just create a listing for your property and buyers will contact you directly via phone or e-mail. This enables you to sell your property yourself, but can also be used as a supplement to a local agent, who will usually focus on local in-country marketing.
