All you need to know about selling properties in B- to D-class locations
Owners selling properties in B- to D-class locations, i.e. locations outside Germany's top 7 cities, are faced with a number of specific challenges: from establishing the optimum price – and carrying out the essential analysis and preparation to do this – to actively managing the marketing process in a discreet and trust-based manner. We meet these challenges with professionalism, offering an end-to-end service to help owners of large municipal, institutional and private properties to achieve the best possible outcome from the marketing of their properties.
In providing our Property Investment Consulting service, we primarily focus on five interrelating success factors, all of which are essential to the successful sale of your asset. These success factors are illustrated for you once again in this detailed infographic (in German).
