Apartment exchange in Moscow

You will need
  • - documents for the apartment;
  • - money to pay for the services of a realtor and additional payments for apartments.
Decide whether you will be engaged in the exchange on your own or with the help of a realtor. In the latter case, find a suitable real estate agency. There are many of them in Moscow; you can find out their addresses and phone numbers in the directory of Moscow organizations or via the Internet. Choose an agency not only for the cost of services, but also for reviews of its work. If no one in your neighborhood has sold apartments in the recent past, refer to reading information on the Internet. However, be careful - not all online reviews can be trusted.
By choosing an agency, negotiate with them the terms of the transaction you want. For example, explain in advance in which area and what size of apartment you are looking for in return for your apartment, are you ready to pay a surcharge and in what amount.
When the realtor selects the right options for you, visit these apartments and choose what suits you best. Usually the deal is in the form of sale, therefore, if the apartment being sold is your only housing, arrange a move synchronization with the realtor.This can be further specified in the contract.
Sign a contract for the sale of housing. Sign out of your former apartment with all the other persons registered there. Pay the money to the realtor and, if necessary, additional payment to the seller.
Act on the same algorithm if you exchange the apartment yourself. The difference will be that the search for exchange options, and the preparation of the contract will fall on you. But in this case, you will save on the agent's commission, which is about three percent of the value of the transaction.
