When and how to sell a property, apartment or house in Germany to a foreigner?
1 Option: if you decide to use the services of a broker in Germany, in this case you provide a power of attorney to collect all the necessary documents that will be required for the sale, as well as consent to search for a buyer, the organization of the necessary views of your property, negotiations with buyers and support the transaction.
You negotiate with the broker the maximum and minimum cost of your property, the terms of sale. If desired, the seller can write a power of attorney for the sale of his property in Germany, indicating the terms of sale, the price of the property, the number of the bank account where the buyer will have to transfer the money.

After signing the contract of sale, the notary in Germany monitors compliance with the terms of the contract, after the buyer transfers the money to the notary's account or directly to the seller and they confirm receipt, the final entry is made in the Land Register and the property is transferred to the new owner.
