A climate-neutrality of buildings is to be reached in Europe by 2050. This goal is set by the EU. This also means new obligations for private property owners in Bad Saarow, Fürstenwalde (Spree), Wendisch Rietz, Grünheide and Storkow. We will explain to you in concrete terms exactly what this means.
When you sell your property, modernisation costs are rarely recovered!
Through modernisation measures, many property owners in the Oder-Spree region – including Storkow, Wendisch Rietz, Grünheide, Fürstenwalde and Bad Saarow – would like to increase the value of their houses or apartments. But be aware: Often these investments do not pay off immediately when they are sold. We know which modernisation measures are useful.
Property taxes are levied annually on land ownership. New regulations will come into effect in 2025. This also affects property owners in the Oder-Spree District. The tax authorities are already starting to update their data. The co-operation of the property owners is required – for example in Storkow, Wendisch Rietz, Grünheide, Bad Saarow and Fürstenwalde. We know exactly what has to be done.
For many elderly property owners in the Oder-Spree district, it is clear they would rather give their loved ones their property by means of inheritance. For property owners in Bad Sarrow, Grünheide, Storkow, Fürstenwalde and Wendisch Rietz this is becoming increasingly an important topic.
Financial support for the beloved children, the long-awaited trip around the globe, more comfort for the daily life – for these circumstances, many older people desire more liquidity.

The real estate annuity allows one to withdraw money from your own property assets without selling your own home.

Short main points about the property, make a decision on the purchase price and then upload two to three photos – quickly advertise your property and find a buyer in a timely fashion. It can’t be so difficult – everything is possible with the internet. Though is that the right appreciation of your beloved property, with which you associate so many memories, having invested so much sweat and work, and invested every cent for construction and modernization? Wouldn’t it be better to take time to develop a precise sales strategy to achieve a reasonable price without making mistakes? There are definitely many small and large stumbling blocks to be avoided. Below is a brief insight into the various factors.
On average, every second inheritance in Germany includes inheriting real estate property.
More and more often small ailments are occurring – there’s a twitch in the legs or in your back. You just want to sit on the sofa, all of a sudden your conscience awakes. Weeds in the garden, lawn needs to be mowed, the windows haven’t been cleaned for some time and there’s also so many chores to be done in this big house.
You have your own four walls – each child with his own room, space to play in their own garden, the father has his own space for his hobbies and mom can create a small vegetable garden. For many Germans, the big dream of a happy family.
In today’s society, people are getting older and increasingly suffering from “prevalent diseases” which also includes dementia. Many people are completely overwhelmed with their lives and daily tasks.
Much praise to the many family members or acquaintances who take on the responsibility as home care support so that the person concerned does not have to go into a care home.
The problems start when the person in their own home requires care assistance. In most cases the savings or monthly payment are not sufficient to cover the cost of the care support. Therefore, in many cases the property must be sold in order to cover the costs.
In order to clarify this question of what purpose an expert opinion for appraisal can determine, one should consider the various reasons why an expert opinion is necessary or can be made.
A business registration, certification of good conduct and a professional liability insurance – unfortunately, more is not required in order to be able to practice as a real estate agent. “Quickly earning money with little effort” is the negative reputation of the real estate agent – serving as the standard which is difficult to overcome and where many allow themselves to be tempted to get a big piece of the cake. Therefore, it is an obvious reproach that there seem to be so many black sheep in this branch of work with various levels of quality inf their work. How can you find the right agent for you who will deliver qualitatively good work?
Comfortably sitting on your sofa while the internet determines the value of your property. All you have to do is simply enter on the internet, short, brief key points of the property such as age, size of the real estate, living space and location and the result you receive is a realistic value of your property. Do you really believe that result? How convenient that would be for us as real estate agents and experts – no longer having to inspect property sites in wind and stormy weather while getting dirty on falling down properties. But why do you think we still do an on-site visit in order to be able to correctly evaluate a property?
At the beginning of the sale of real estate is the time for a proper assessment of your property. Is it possible for you to make a neutral assessment of your property? How do you go about making this judgement? Many of our clients respond: “Oh sure, my neighbour just sold his property for this price. My property definitely has the same value.” Though is it possible that you would be selling your property too cheaply using this tactic and just giving away your money?
The effects of the Corona crisis on the regional real estate market have prompted us to inform you today about a red-hot topic from our real estate advisory. Even though many of us would no longer wish to hear about the daily topics of “Corona crisis”, “lockdown” or “reproduction factors”, it has had a positive effect on sellers in our regional real estate market.
The new legally regulated sharing of commissions!
Just in time for Christmas, from December 23rd 2020 there will be a new uniform and legally binding division of commissions for all federal states. On May 14th 2020, the Bundestag (German Parliament) approved the law on distribution of commissions for real estate agents who have provided assistance to buyers for the purchasing contracts of condominiums and single family homes. Until now there has not been any uniform regulation on commission payments for buyers and sellers. In many federal states a commission sharing was already in effect (3.57% per party), though in some states, including Berlin, Brandenburg, Hesse, Bremen and Hamburg, the commission costs were paid solely by the buyer.
In the following explanation, we will give you a brief insight into the new “principle of double commission” for whom and when it applies.
Thank-you very much for the past year filled with very good co-operation. We would also like to remain in the future – no matter how uncertain it may be – a reliable partner for you and your real estate affairs.
We wish you a Happy Christmas and a Healthy New Year!
