What does a buyer’s agent do?

 

A buyer’s agent guides you in finding and buying a home. He or she has good connections on the Curaçao housing market, so that you are quickly informed about properties for sale. The purchase broker can help you select suitable houses and, if desired, accompany you or go to viewings on your behalf. Have you found your dream home? Then the broker makes an offer for you and he or she conducts negotiations with the selling party. You can agree with the purchase broker which services you want to acquire. Many different packages are offered, and prices may differ. If you live in the Netherlands or any other country and want to be able to switch quickly and only come to Curacao when you are almost certain that you have found the right home, then engaging a purchase broker is really the right choice.

Purchase broker costs: how much do you pay for a purchase broker?

The costs for a buyer’s broker can vary. Usually, we work with a fixed rate plus a percentage of the discount that we can negotiate for you.

 

Purchase broker benefits

 

Engaging a purchase broker on Curacao has many advantages. Some are:

 

  • The broker takes work off your hands and is an expert in the field of buying homes on Curacao.

 

  • Because the purchase broker is not emotionally involved with the property, he or she can give you an objective opinion and advise you on the amount of the offer you want to make. The purchase broker is an experienced appraiser, financial expert and therefore also understands construction, tax and related matters.

 

  • Negotiating is a daily activity for the purchase broker, he is probably more adept at it than you as a ‘home buyer’. In addition, the purchase broker helps you with various legal and administrative matters regarding the purchase. The purchase broker can think of drawing up the purchase contract, but also can review the conditions under which you purchase, advise you to purchase privately or for business and much more…

 

 

Disadvantages of purchase broker

 

The disadvantage of a purchase broker are of course the costs, and these can add up considerably. In addition, the purchasing agent often has no direct contact with the selling party. Do the costs outweigh the benefits for you? Then you will have to negotiate and sort out the tax and legal matters yourself.

 

 

What should you pay attention to when choosing a purchase broker on Curacao?

 

When choosing a buyer’s agent, of course, there are more things to think about other than the costs. If you choose a buyer’s agent who is unable to obtain a house for you, then of course you will not benefit from that. It’s necessary to check how experienced the relevant purchasing agent is. Also see if you can find online reviews about him or her. It always inspires more confidence when other people also say that a particular buyer’s agent knows his trade well.

 

 

 

Buying a house without a purchase broker?

 

You can also buy a house without a purchase broker. Keep in mind that you will probably have to invest a lot of time and energy in the search for homes, the process of bidding and negotiating. It is also possible that a property is offered through a different channel, which means that you are too late. If necessary, enlist help from friends or family and make sure that you have read carefully. To get you started, we probably have a few useful articles for you.

 

Guidance financing on Curacao

 

In addition to hiring us as a purchase broker, you can also engage us to assist with the application for financing. We will then help you with all kinds of matters that another purchase broker usually does not arrange for you for example: mortgage advice or seeing whether it might make sense to transfer your current mortgage. Our advice is completely independent because the interests of our customers always come first.
