Information about selling a property

Selling your home

Selling your home is something you only do a few times in your life. You want a good price for it and a dependable buyer. The sale process needs to go smoothly, while you need to keep a cool head while emotions run high. Legal issues, the sales agreement and notarial aspects need to be arranged precisely. You want an agent who truly understands you, knows the local housing market through and through and is instinctively able to find the right buyer.

What’s the right way to sell a property?

Selling a property involves a large number of tasks you cannot do on your own. It makes sense to contract a local and experienced specialist to serve your interests from A to Z. Only an agent who knows exactly what makes your home unique, is based locally and can be reached seven days a week can provide potential buyers with all the information they need and succeed in selling your home at a good price.

Interhouse sales agents are just such local experts. Their unique customised approach defines and reaches the right target group of potential buyers. Your property will be examined carefully and presented professionally and appropriately. Interhouse sales agents occupy a dedicated sales role and will do all they can to make the best-possible sale.

Why choose Interhouse sales agents?

They only operate locally

This is a deliberate USP of Interhouse sales agents. The agent lives in the area in which your home is located and consequently knows all the ins and outs relating to your property, enabling them to provide the most detailed information to potential buyers and to close the best sale.

Customised approach

Each property is different. That’s why our Interhouse sales agents always adopt a customised approach. They pay you a personal visit to inspect and assess your home carefully. This enables your agent to define the right sales strategy, including a customised and fare fee, before setting to work on your behalf.

First-rate knowledge

Interhouse sales agents are certified experts. This is crucial to serving you properly and to acting pro-actively on your behalf.

My contacts with Jens Godthelp and his colleagues at Interhouse sales agents in The Hague were always positive. Prompt, clear-cut, friendly and extremely helpful, as well as contributing ideas and thinking ahead. The sale of my apartment (I had previously let it via Interhouse letting agents The Hague) was conducted expertly and as a result quickly and smoothly.

My experience of this agent is that he sets to work thoroughly and appropriately and possesses a deep knowledge of real estate. I think he’s good at putting himself in the shoes of both the buyer and the vendor, making him an exceedingly competent negotiator for clinching a deal. I can wholeheartedly recommend this agent to sell your property and offer you peace of mind.

More reasons to choose an Interhouse sales agent

  • Easy accessibility
    Interhouse sales agencies are small-scale offices that focus on providing the best-possible service. It’s important for your agent to be easily accessible, even outside normal office hours. This means you always receive first-hand, up-to-date information on your sale.
  • Available 7 days a week
    Properties aren’t always sold between 9am and 5pm. Interhouse sales agents are flexibly available by appointment for you and for potential buyers. That means your property is also viewed and a sale perhaps even clinched outside office hours.
  • Creative
    It takes fresh creativity and knowledge to set the available (online) resources to work and reach the right target group(s). There’s a world of difference between putting something up for sale and making a good sale.
  • Global marketing
    Everything is available in english and in addition to high-quality presentations on, Funda and other reputable websites, we draw up a customised marketing plan. The international (expat) network, social media, video and your own network are also put to use. Your property will come to the attention of the right target group(s) in no time.
  • Customised commission
    The aim is simple: Interhouse sales agents want to deliver more than the amount they charge you for the sale. You can be assured of a fair, customised commission rate, preferably performance-related and based on the marketability of your property.
  • Common goal
    The common goal is to make a good sale. Interhouse sales agents do all they can to achieve that with your assistance.
