I sold my apartment via Amir, back in February. I was very unsatisfied with my business with Amir, due to the following reasons:
- Amir contacted me and told me he had a list of customers who would be willing to buy my apartment at a very high price at any time (which later I understood was not true), and therefore asked me to sign a contract with him in order to sell my apartment via him,
- Amir did not discuss the base price with me; he set the base price lower than my minimum expectation, but he assured me that he would be able to sell the apartment at much a higher price, which was not true in the end. In short, he set the price according to his own wish, without really asking my opinion,
- He charged 62,500 SEK for a small one-room apartment (33 kvm), where most brokers in Uppsala charge 40,000 SEK to 50,000 SEK for such a small apartment. The reason I accepted to pay that high price was that he promised to sell the apartment at a very high price, which was not true in the end.
- Despite the high fee, he did not took photographs of my apartments; he used the old photographs from the time when I had purchased the apartment.
My advice to future sellers: be very careful when a broker contacts you and tells you that they have customers for your apartment and if you want to sell your apartment via them. It is better that you go and choose your broker when you are really ready to sell your apartment.
