Looking for a real estate agent

We are looking for a reliable real estate agent to sell our apartment in Dietikon.

Any good recommendations?

Re: Looking for a real estate agent

Actually despite using a number of agencies. I cannot recommend any. Swiss agents make used car salesmen look good.

I would suggest https://www.walde.ch/en/ and https://www.ginesta.ch/de/. Friends who used them were satisfied with their services, especially Walde...good luck!

Re: Looking for a real estate agent

When you bought it, did the sellers use an agent? Or was it brand new, and a builder was selling it? You could go back to one of these persons.

It is not impossible to sell your own property, if you are willing to put in the time and effort. If not, then shop around, as the agent's fees and term and conditions can vary.

Re: Looking for a real estate agent

when I sold my apartment I had 3 agencies give me an offer incl their evaluation of the property. In the end you have to choose sb you feel comfortable with and with whom you believe you can get the most out of the sale (it s not always the sale price, dont forget their commission and how it is calculated...). Just contact a few that you see are selling in your area and have them come by for an offer.

I went with Walde in the end, but also had Remax and another one (cant remember the name) in the running.

Re: Looking for a real estate agent

There is such a demand for good property in the Zurich area that paying an agent 3% (or more) is a waste of money. We sold our house on homegate.ch for CHF130 within 2 days. All you need to have is an idea of the property‘s value...
