Real estate agency in Lomé - Togo
Buying or renting a new home is an important moment in life and it is always better to be accompanied by an expert.
Real estate agencies and developers are the two essential pillars of the real estate sector.
Whatever your real estate project, whether you want to buy or rent, you will have the choice between two alternatives: use a real estate agency or turn to a real estate developer.
Before going further, it is necessary to define the differences between a real estate agency and a real estate developer.
Real estate agency: the most obvious key to sell, buy or rent
The purpose of a real estate agency is to allow an individual to sell, rent or buy a dwelling, an apartment or a detached house in the best conditions.
Intermediary par excellence between a seller and a buyer, the real estate agent's mission is to advise - simultaneously or consecutively - the two parties, with the ultimate objective of satisfying their reciprocal and respective expectations.
Are you the owner? We will make every effort to best sell your house, your apartment and, more broadly, any virtually salable property such as a building, a parking lot, a building plot, a forest, or landed property.
The first responsibility of our agency will be to offer you a selling price, resulting from an estimate based on its expertise, its experience, the price of similar properties recently sold in the same geographical area and the character (original or no) of the proposed accommodation.
To arrive at his estimate, the real estate agent will have taken care to inquire beforehand about all the essential information: living area in square meters, potential redistribution of interior spaces, possibilities of extending or raising the property...
Just as crucial, his second mission will be to develop a relationship of trust with the seller. This relationship of trust will be decisive during the multiple stages that will lead to the actual sale of the accommodation: visits, negotiations, sales proposals, signing of the compromise, etc.
It is again this relationship of trust that will decide the type of mandate (simple or exclusive) that will frame the sale. Concretely, a simple mandate puts several real estate agencies in competition by authorizing them all to sell the same accommodation: may the fastest and the best win! Conversely, by signing an exclusive mandate, the owner entrusts a single real estate agency with the task of carrying out the transaction within a set deadline. Of course, an agency with an exclusive mandate will devote more time and energy to offering the property entrusted to it.
In both cases, and in order to present the property under the best conditions of sale, the real estate agent takes care of everything: precise measurements of the area, writing of the description, taking professional quality photos, distribution of the announcement of your house or your apartment simultaneously within his agency, his network and on his site potential buyers as safely as possible.
Real estate developer: new first!
Expert in transactions of all kinds, a real estate agency can either sell, buy or rent new or old properties.
The developer, on the other hand, designs, builds and markets only new real estate programs. Often very versatile, he searches for land, asks for the various prior authorizations (demolition permit, building permit, etc.) before designing an overall construction project and studying its profitability.
In close collaboration with architects and town planners (the integration of the program in its neighborhood is essential to offer an ideal living space to future occupants), the promoter is carrying out the actual construction while completing the financing plan and responsible for marketing, alone or with the help of a partner real estate agency.
Be careful not to confuse developer and developer: the latter sells serviced bare land (ready to build) when the developer actually builds the final product.
Save time and money by renting accommodation through a real estate agency
Looking for a place to rent on your own can seem like a good idea in terms of savings. But hidden defects, final rents disproportionate to the advertised price, prohibitive charges, approximate legality of the contract, absence of receipts..., examples abound of tenants who bite their fingers a posteriori.
In short, if you are looking for a rental, do not hesitate for a moment: treat yourself to the services of a real estate agency worthy of the name! You will thus be assured of tailor-made support and procedures carried out according to the rules of the art, which will protect you from any unpleasant surprises. With the added peace of mind that only an expert in the field can bring you in your search for the accommodation of your choice, at the best value for money.
For this, your agent will have taken care to ask you all the essential questions to be sure to offer you properties in perfect harmony with your request: house, apartment? Size and number of bedrooms? Size of the living room? Open or closed kitchen? City, suburb or countryside? Lively or quiet neighborhood? Shops and transport in the immediate vicinity or not? …
Do you own a new or old home and want to rent it out?
Again, entrust this mission without hesitation to our real estate agency.
You will avoid the pangs of selecting applications, multiple visits, the final choice, the inventory when the tenant enters (and leaves), the signing and management of administrative documents, the drafting and sending rent receipts, day-to-day rental management: works, repairs… sometimes urgent! According to your agreement, the agency will decide on the tenant who will have the chance to enter the premises or will receive and sort the application files before submitting a selection to you to allow you to make the decision yourself with full knowledge. of cause. And at your request, the selected agency can even offer you a rental payment guarantee.
You will have understood: whatever your real estate project (sale, rental, purchase, etc.), trusting a professional is the best decision you can make to be sure of not taking any reckless risks and completing your project within the better arrangements.
