E. Nearchou Estates Ltd, is an established independent boutique estate agency offering a fresh and innovative approach to selling your home, combining flair and attention to detail with the local expertise of an independent estate agency.
We believe that the correct exposure and marketing, combined with the excellent service we provide, will not only achieve the best possible price for your property but will also make the sale of your property as stress free as possible.
We understand that every property is different and that’s why we approach each new home with a blank piece of paper. Our property specialists identify the strongest selling points of your home and find ways to showcase them to their fullest potential. When a large number of people know that your property is for sale, it increases the chances to be sold faster than expected. Our website, www.nearchou.com is just one way we make sure people in Cyprus, and all around the world, can view details about your listed property.
Every day, we receive a constant high volume of property enquiries. These requests are processed and sent to our property consultants.
All these efforts result in viewings of your property. After securing a viewing request, the consultant will give you a call to arrange a viewing appointment at a date and time which is convenient for you. During the appointment, the consultant will show your property to potential buyers.
After the viewing, the consultant will receive feedback from the potential buyers. If everything goes smoothly, and the buyers are interested, then the negotiation process begins.
Once the offer is presented, our consultant will advise on the offer and any possible negotiations, as well as guide you with how to accept the offer and all subsequent legal proceedings. It is not unusual to have an offer heavily negotiated, moving between buyer and seller many times before it is accepted. At this point, the consultant negotiates a fair price that suits both parties, having in mind the buyer’s price limitations and expectations, as well as property’s boundaries.
When offer is accepted by the seller, a contract of sale will be prepared by a lawyer and a meeting will be arranged for the signing of the contract and the payment of the deposit. A commission for the real estate agency is also paid on the date of signing the contract. The purchaser is advised to deposit the contract of sale to the Land Registry within 6 months from the signing of the contract.
When all payments of all taxes and fees are completed, transfer of legal ownership is completed at the Land Registry.
When it comes to selling your home there are a number of things which you should take into consideration if you want a successful and affordable sale. Increasing the saleability of your home means looking at the condition of the property and the costs involved in selling property, to ensure that you get a fair price and avoid excessive expenses in order to make your sale.
In our experience, it takes some effort to sell a property. Once you have made the decision to sell, it is in your best interest to prepare your property for market attention. Here are a few quick tips putting your place up for sale and making sure that it's sold quickly:
First Impressions Count. Make your home as appealing as possible to potential buyers, present it in top shape - all repairs must be completed before any buyer visits your home. Be sure to take care of small things such as squeaky doors, stubborn stains, and missing keys.
Give your property a facelift. You should also carry out any necessary aesthetic work, such as painting and cleaning. This will improve saleability and increase the value of your home. Paint any peeling walls, remove mould spots, treat any insect infestations, fix broken windows/doors/cracked tiles. You won’t get the chance for a second impression without a good first impression.
In-depth renovation. If time permits, consider carrying out more in-depth improvements which will increase both the value and the saleability of your home, such as replacement windows, a new kitchen or bathroom, and improved heating within the home. Often, taking out a home improvement loan to carry out these works will allow you to recoup costs through the increase in value of the home. Sometimes, these repairs can be included in the promise of sale document, so getting them out of the way early puts you at an advantage.
Clean & tidy. Always keep your home clean & tidy. Dirt does not appeal to anyone. Studies have shown that a cluttered and dirty property will take longer to sell, as potential buyers cannot imagine themselves in the home. For the same reason, put away any family photos.
Get your agent involved. Once your home is shipshape and ready to go, your estate agent will be in a much better position to help you sell your property. Your agent will meet up with you and take photos in order to bring your property to the market. The agent will advise you on valuation, asking price and how long it may take to sell - issues which are different in each case.
