THE KEY STEPS TO SELLING YOUR PROPERTY QUICKLY
Do you have a house or a beautiful apartment that you want to sell quickly? Do you need advice for a quick sale? Many buyers are attracted to the Charente region, which boasts a palpable economic dynamism and is a great place to live. The local real estate market offers good conditions for homeowners wishing to sell. It’s a good time to make a transaction.
Nevertheless, there are a few key steps to follow to sell your apartment or house in the shortest possible time. In fact, although it takes around three months to finalize a sale, your property may remain on the market for a longer or shorter period. So you need to do everything you can to find a potential buyer without too much delay.
1 – ESTIMATE THE HOUSE OR APARTMENT FOR SALE
To sell an apartment or house quickly, the first step is to have the property appraised , whether it’s new or old. The price depends on a number of factors, including location, surface area and condition. If your house or apartment is in need of renovation, the price will be lower than for an identical property in need of repair. The price can also be increased by adding a terrace, an open kitchen or a larger living area. Other features can add value to your property, for example, if it has an entrance, faces south or has a large terrace.
The price per m² also depends on the location. The value of your apartment can be higher or lower depending on the neighborhood.
Apartments – Averagem2 price €1,660 – Lowm2 price €1,220 – Highm2 price €2,430
Houses – Averagem2 price €1,420 – Lowm2 price €780 – Highm2 price €2,060
Other factors can be taken into account: shops within walking distance, transportation, etc. What’s more, a property in a luxury or intimate residence can be worth more.

2 – APARTMENT OR HOUSE FOR SALE: CHOOSE AND SIGN A SALES MANDATE
Call on your local real estate agency to speed up your transaction. When you entrust your apartment or house sale project to us, you must sign a sales mandate on behalf of our agency. You can choose between 3 types of mandate:
- the exclusive sales mandate: our agency is the only one authorized to offer the property on the market; neither any other agency, nor you as the seller, can advertise the property for sale.
- semi-exclusive mandate: our agency is the only one authorized to sell your property, but you can also place an ad.
- the simple mandate: there is no exclusive right to sell, and you can contact as many agencies as you like to sell your property.
3 – CARRY OUT REAL ESTATE DIAGNOSTICS TO SELL A PROPERTY
Real estate diagnostics are essential to inform potential buyers about the condition of a property and its compliance with current standards. These diagnostics include
- gas installation
- the power grid
- risks and pollution
- the presence or absence of termites, lead and asbestos
- noise level
- property information booklet
- Energy performance diagnosis or DPE.
4 – SIGN THE SALES AGREEMENT
If a buyer is attracted by the house or apartment you wish to sell, you can conclude an agreement. This takes the form of a preliminary sales agreement, which is signed by both parties in the presence of one of our agents. The buyer has a right of withdrawal of 10 days after this signature.
5 – FINALIZE THE SALE OF YOUR PROPERTY BY SIGNING THE DEED OF SALE
This stage completes the process of selling your property. The deed of sale is signed before a notary. Once signed, the deed of sale transfers ownership of the property to the buyer. He becomes the legal owner from that moment on. The notary gives a copy of the deed of sale to the seller and the buyer.
