Estate agencies are intermediaries whose services are contracted by people who want to sell their apartment. An estate agent will show the apartment to potential buyers and negotiate with them. People who want to buy an apartment often go to an estate agency due to a lack of time to look for a home themselves or because they are not familiar with the procedures involved in buying property. Agencies usually charge a fee of 5% of the real value of each apartment they help to sell.

You should bear in mind that estate agency advertising often uses special offers or bargains to attract the attention of buyers, and focuses on the positive aspects of homes without mentioning their negative aspects.

It is possible to buy either new or second-hand homes.
