The four main reasons why you should choose an agency with an office in Belgium.
Have you always dreamed of a second home on one of the Spanish Costa?
UNIQ Estates is the Belgian specialist in real estate in Spain. Thanks to years of experience, it was decided in the spring of 2020 to open a physical office in Belgium in order to provide even better support to interested parties.
Spain is the favorite holiday destination of many Belgians. Every year, more and more Belgians buy a second home on one of Spain's most beautiful Costa, but this remains a very big decision.
Serge Claes and Stijn Herbosch, business managers and also founders of UNIQ Estates, would like to list the benefits for you when choosing a real estate agent with a physical office in Belgium.
1. Contact in your own country
It is now almost fixed, Spain will be your second home. Buying your dream home in Spain is a big step where UNIQ Estates is happy to guide you, starting from the office in Belgium.
From the large number of estate agents with a Spanish real estate portfolio, there are only a few where you can contact both the first contact, the purchase, follow-up and after-sales service are available in your own country. With its office in Schoten (Antwerp), UNIQ Estates is the ideal contact point for customers from all over the country.
2. Controlled by BIV
In Belgium, the "Professional Institute for Real Estate Brokers" (BIV) watches over all its recognized members. UNIQ Estates also belongs to the group of recognized members. A BIV recognition means that customers can always purchase with confidence. It offers the customer certainty and guarantee not to have to deal with a rogue broker.
In Spain people work completely differently. You will not find a supervisory body, such as the BIV in Belgium. The profession is not recognized, so that anyone, with or without any training in real estate, can profile themselves as a "real estate agent". This means that anyone on Spanish territory can open an office.
With an office in Belgium, you will always be able to purchase your dream stay in Spain with confidence at UNIQ Estates.
3. Guidance from A tot Z
At UNIQ Estates they don't do half the job. They are known for the total guidance they deliver time and time again. The structured approach, which they personalize customer by customer, quickly proved to be a success formula.
"Anyone can sell a house", a saying that often circulates within real estate business. At UNIQ Estates, however, they interpret "sales" in the broad sense of the word and are happy to assist in the entire purchasing process.
This implies that:
- You are dealing with a professional contact as the first point of contact in Belgium;
- They assist you during the entire organization of a viewing trip;
