The importance and convenience of an attorney acting both as estate agent and conveyancer
Attorneys have been selling properties from times immemorial and are, arguably, the oldest formal estate agents in South Africa.
As such, an attorney can perform both the role of estate agent and conveyancer.
This means that both seller and buyer have the peace of mind that their interests will be protected by a qualified legal professional.
Both seller and buyer enjoy the convenience of a complete property service 'under one roof'. (That is, from the seller's first nervous enquiry about selling his property, to finally receiving the proceeds of the sale.)
After death and divorce, selling a property, is often the most stressful experience a person may have to endure.
This stress, which is often unavoidable, can be relieved by entrusting the difficult and challenging task of selling and transferring a property, to a reliable professional who has the skills and the knowledge to attend to all aspects of a property sale and transfer and which is frequently fraught with legal pitfalls and practical obstacles.
At 3%.Com Properties, attorneys and conveyancers have formed a national group that specialises in the marketing, selling and transferring of immovable property and all other aspects related to property law.
By using their law practices as the business hub from which the estate agency is run and the income that may be derived from the conveyancing, these attorneys have created a massive saving
This saving is passed onto the sellers.
That is why it is possible for these attorneys to charge a mere 3% plus VAT sales commission without compromising the quality and extent of a high touch and full-on estate agency service.
Equally important, is that the buyers also benefit from this: By reducing the sales commission, it is possible for the seller to reduce the purchase price which means not only a saving for the buyer on the purchase price, but also a saving on the conveyancing fee and transfer duty which are directly proportional to the purchase price.
