BUYING AND SELLING IN MADEIRA. HERE ARE 3 TRAITS YOU WILL WANT IN YOUR PROPERTY AGENT

For both buyers and sellers, chosing the right property agent is an important and difficult decision.
FOR THE BUYER
With thousands of property in Madeira for sale being advertised on the net, it is not difficult for a buyer to find property.  The most difficult task is finding the right property agent to work with.

FOR SELLERS
Most sellers are not obtaining the correct real estate advice as their properties are suffering from over exposure on the net.  Over exposure to a seller effectively means longer periods on the market and lower offers.

EXPERIENCE
Whilst there are a substantial number of good property companies and agents to choose from, in the property business, companies are only as good as it’s agents or representatives.
Whilst a new company or agent may have both energy and desire, experienced agents will be able to offer insights and know-how which are likely to give their clients the edge in their transaction.  Of course an agent must be licensed, but recent changes in the Portuguese laws have simplified the acquisition for licensing hence buyers and sellers have more agents to chose from.   The property industry is a results orientated business where only 20% of the people do 80% of the business and Madeira Island is no different in that respect.  Its always best to try and find an agent to work with that has proven results.

CREATIVITY
Since a variety of problems may occur at any point in time in a property transaction, a property agent should be able to solve problems creatively.  An agent who helps their clients think through problems, offers reasonable alternatives  or finds way to overcome obstacles is invaluable to both buyers and sellers.  Marketing is essential in today’s property world although it is a local business, global exposure has become a necessity.
For sellers every property has a target market and marketed correctly means finding a buyer sooner.  Buyers who work with agents who are educated and able to master marketing and communication skills does not only mean being able to talk a different language any more, but managing cultural differences in a positive and constructive manner, for the benefit of both buyer and seller alike.

HONESTY AND INTEGRITY
Sellers  in Madeira need to work with somebody who will be realistic with them about the current market value of their home, which is often not what they think their home is actually worth.
Home buyers in Madeira need to work with somebody who is experienced and has a track record of successful real estate business concluded in their local market.
