Property sale process in Ljubljana

In Zwelo, property sale starts online and lasts shorter than in any other agency. Our online business model allows us to save time and spend it more efficiently. Before we advertise a property for sale, we get all the information from the property owner, prepare our team for photoshoots and wind every gear in our system.

Supply for properties for sale in Ljubljana

In 2019 we have a high demand for new apartments, so investors count on earnings from sold flats, which are quite often sold while still in construction. Also, the process of obtaining the building approval certificates is much quicker now.

Location determines the price

Location was once the decision breaker, but now buyers are willing to compromise location for getting everything they want in a new building. However, this is an exemption to the rule, and it's only valid for high-quality buildings. There are construction companies that are well known for their superior quality of construction and buyers that want an apartment in their building follow their work. Location comes second then, but only if the new building is located in a part of town that is well connected with the city center, schools, parks, and work. There are rare occasions where buyers can find a new building of superior quality that is also located in the very city center.

Condominiums as the buyers' first choice

Today, the most popular type of residential buildings are condominiums - buildings that have additional objects like parks, playgrounds and sometimes even swimming pools. Along with that, condominiums are designed to offer peace and quiet in the middle of city buzz. The condominium is not the same as the residential complex as its focus is on shared activities and common space. These buildings have parking lots, video surveillance, spa centers, shops, cafes and restaurants, and all that inside their complex.

Along with investors and their representatives, real estate experts also recommend buying apartments in new buildings, especially to young and busy couples who don't have time or money for renovations. Buying an apartment in a new building means that buyers can move in straight away and easily furnish their new home. Sometimes though, buyers insist on buying older apartments, so they can get a lower price and renovate and decorate to their own taste and needs.

Demand for properties for sale in Ljubljana

On top of looking for new apartments for sale, buyers in Ljubljana look for older apartments in the city center. As some municipalities, like Center, have limited construction possibilities, the demand for older apartments is much higher. When it comes to studios and one-bedroom apartments or two-bedroom apartments near schools, the demand is much higher than the supply.

Affordable housing loans and mortgages

Favorable conditions for signing up for housing loans have significantly affected the fact that young people decide to buy apartments. In some cases, the amount of the monthly mortgage loan will be less than the monthly rent. The most popular apartments are studios and one-bedroom condos in the city center. These apartments are favorite among couples, young professionals and older buyers who invest their savings in real estate. In Ljubljana smaller apartments in the city center will always have high market value, primarily because they are an excellent choice for renting.

Couples planning for a family usually look for one and a half bedroom and two-bedroom apartments in municipalities in the wider city center area. They choose these locations for available parking spaces (if they hadn't already bought them with the property) and the proximity to public institutions.

Old apartments in the Ljubljana city center

Some apartments offer much more than it seems at first sight. Sometimes it only takes a small adjustment, and an old-fashioned apartment can become an ideal place for families. Buying an old apartment has its advantages because buyers had already calculated the cost of renovation in advance. They will hire contractors and tear down a wall or two, or maybe build a new one, choose the materials and renovate electrical and plumbing installations. They will transform the apartment according to their taste. In parts of the city where the price of old apartments is much lower than the cost of new apartments, this type of investment certainly pays off.

The process of selling properties

When you decide to sell property, the first thing you need to do is to choose a reliable real estate expert. As much as it seems that you can do everything by yourself, our suggestion is to find a reliable partner who can help you quickly sell the apartment. With us, the sale of the apartment is a very transparent process. We will find you a potential buyer, and the buyer will find your apartment using our website.

Advertising an apartment for sale in Ljubljana

When you choose to advertise apartment for sale, you will have all the marketing channels that we had set up at your disposal. Your property will be visible to hundreds of thousands of people. Among them is your ideal buyer.

How to prepare your property for sale

When we conclude a brokerage agreement, we will explain to you how to prepare your property for sale. You need to have the proof of ownership, willingness to negotiate the price and a certain moving out date. This way we will have everything ready for the sale of the property, which will help the buyer to give his offer quickly. This is something that really sets us apart from the competition, and we will always insist on transparency and publishing only the accurate information.

Property viewings

Whether you are selling an apartment, a house or an office space, we will make a professional media presentation for your property, which will include 360 ​​photos as well as photographs and videos. This type of visual presentation will allow the customer to virtually "walk through" your apartment and thus get an insight into the place. Only genuinely interested buyers will schedule a viewing of the property and come to meet you.

Scheduling property viewings

This step runs automatically via the viewing scheduling system that we developed in our company. When potential buyers choose the date and time of viewing, they enter the first step of the process. From that moment on, all your communication will run automatically, directly, and in time that suits you the best. You don't have to wait to change the proposed time. You only need your mobile phone and with a single text message and our automatic system you can do all this without our presence and outside of our working hours.

Meeting the buyer

When the potential buyer visits the property for sale, he will already know what to expect. It is up to you to show your apartment and to answer all questions. The buyer will give his offer with the help of our real estate expert, who will be available for negotiation throughout the entire day. Real estate experts lead the process of sale, and they are available on the phone or email during the day.

Finalization of the sale

After we reach the price that is acceptable for you and the buyer, we will discuss further details about closing up the deal. This is an important part where we advise you to get a good lawyer who is familiar with sorting out the documentation and drafting the contracts.

With us the entire process is transparent. We will equally represent our buyers and property owners. All information we share with both sides is accurate, double-checked and distributed on time. We introduce property owners with prospective buyers who are already interested and ready to make an offer. We charge commission from buyers only after we help them find the perfect apartment. We guarantee that we will never give up our principles and that we will continue to do things the way we imagined - revolutionary with hope to change the real estate market forever.
