Services for property ownersMarket valuations
Whether applied to the rentals or sales of flats, houses or offices, Zagreb West real estate agency’s market valuations are based on more than 25 years’ experience and many completions. This enables our clients to trust that the price we suggest is the one aligned with market trends and comparative properties. We are very realistic when giving valuations, which is very important because the price-quality ratio is one of the main criteria that buyers or tenants currently apply when selecting a flat, house or office. There is no institution other than Burza nekretnina
, which publishes completed prices, and most of the listed asking prices of flats, houses and offices are higher than those at which transactions complete. Since there is no secondary source of information our clients could rely on when forming the price of their flat, house or office, it is very important that the one we suggest is realistic and founded. Innovative, effective marketing
The directors and owners of Zagreb West real estate agency are educated and have international work experience in the fields of entrepreneurship, marketing and sales. All the agents and realtors have sales and negotiation experience and are carefully selected to be part of our team because of their professional, open, responsible and enthusiastic approach to the job. Both the anagement and sales teams continuously follow trends which shape the market and undergo training.
It is important for the owners that their flat, house or office is presented in such a way that the largest possible number of clients sees the advert and decides to see their property because of it. Zagreb West real estate agency’s web site is user-friendly, visually attractive and optimised for Google so that it is easily accessible to clients looking for a flat, house or office to buy or rent. We publish high-quality but realistic photos on our web site so that flats, houses and offices are presented in the right way. The properties are described accurately and in detail. Our offer is present on the most effective and used property search engines. We advertise in the most read papers and property supplements. Zagreb West real estate agency is especially focused on the use of social media as a communication and advertising channel and we are generating an increased number of business via Facebook and Instagram. We have a newsletter which is targeted for the audience it addresses so that it is relevant and useful. We get lots of our business via referrals of satisfied clients, especially in the field of rentals, within which we have productive business relationships with the owners of high quality properties, embassies and large companies.

All of this enables the owners of flats, houses and offices listed with Zagreb West real estate agency to leave the advertising and presentation of their property in our hands. Energy certificates
Zagreb West real estate agency offers energy certificates through authorized certifiers who carry out a detailed survey of the flat, house or office they are certifying and issue it quickly at market level price. This completes the package of services we offer the owners to make it easier for them to sell or rent their flat, house or office.
Most of our clients have the obligation of having an energy certificate because all the owners of flats, houses or offices in a building larger than 50m2 are required to have one. The obligation of having an energy certificate for properties for sale became effective on the day Croatia joined the EU, while the owners of properties for rent have had the obligation of having one since 01. January 2016. The owners of properties for rent for tourist purposes are exempt.
An energy certificate is a document valid for 10 years, and it determines the energy classification of the building, its energy characteristics and provides information on the potential consumption of energy. The energy certificate also gives recommendations on the improvement of energy consumption. All additional information about energy efficiency is available on the web site of the Ministry of construction physical planning (link). Legal support
The purchase/sale of a flat, house of office is potentially one of the biggest and most stressful life situations we are faced with. Because of the still relatively disorderly situation with the Land books and Cadastral registries in Croatia, and due to the lack of experience most clients have in the sale/purchase or renting of a flat, house or office, legal protection of its clients is one of Zagreb West real estate agency’s paramount goals.
