Knowing that you are dealing with "RIGHT" Dubai Realtors...Property is big business in Dubai, and just like any other business it has its share of experts and aspirants. Finding a good estate agent in Dubai is essential for conducting painless real estate transactions. But how will you find a good agent? Don’t worry we’ll help you! We’ll give you two simple strategies - one for sellers/landlords and the other for buyers/tenants – that will enable you to differences between good and wannabe real estate agents/agencies quickly and efficiently:
For Sellers/LandlordsThe fundamental job of any agent is to ensure that sellers and landlords receive the best possible price, taking into consideration the market conditions at that time. It is important to remember: realtors do not determine the value of your home, buyers/tenants do.
It's the agent's job to advise you on your current competition (properties similar to yours available in the market). An agent must know everything about your competitor’s offer, including its price ceiling; its duration; the reason why it hasn’t been sold etc. You as the homeowner will ultimately make the decision on price.
Upon receiving instruction for sellers and landlords to market their properties, a professional agent will expose the property through his/her network of buyers and tenants alerting them of a new property coming to the market, and highlighting the property’s key selling points.
Allsopp & Allsopp have become the agent of choice within Dubai for honest, factual and straightforward advice. While other realtors still use “low balling tactics” to get your property price down in value just because they cannot sell it? We do no such thing. As the property market has matured we understand that as homeowners ourselves, we want reasons why a particular home/office hasn’t been sold, not just the old saying “bring your price down because no one’s calling about your property” – Allsopp & Allsopp is a trained British agency built upon trust, transparency and facts.
There may be hundreds of ways to market a property, but only a good realtor, with local market insight and associated experience, can highlight your property’s inherent potential to prepare that “perfect all conquering” sales/rent pitch.
So look for an agent that takes an interest in achieving the best possible price and comes up with solutions not problems. At Allsopp & Allsopp actions speak louder than words.
For Buyers/TenantsA good agent must have the capability to think from your perspective. Only then will he/she be able to find the perfect property that best fits your needs and budget. Average agents never try to understand their client’s requirements, and instead will try to impose their will on the same – in other words they try to cut the feet to fit the shoes!
So seek an agent that goes beyond consultative selling, and instead focuses on meeting your needs. All realtors are given choices, but only good ones help you find the deal that best suits your needs, and that too affordable.
All of this may sound complicated, but it really isn’t! All you’ll need is an experienced professional who listens to you, and conducts himself/herself in an ethical manner, so that you can trust him to act in your interest.
