Not everyone uses a buying agent, but with today’s tight housing market, cities are increasingly using buying agents. A purchase broker helps you with the search for your dream home and guides you through the purchase process. In many cities in the Netherlands it is becoming increasingly difficult for a private individual to buy a home without a buying agent with a realistic offer. Due to the great interest in the scarce housing supply, it is ‘normal’ that offers are higher than the asking price. Read on below to find out how we can best help you compare buying agents. Juiste Makelaarmakes comparing easy for you!
When you fill in your preferences during the check on the website, Juiste Makelaar selects the best buying agents especially for you. The selected brokers have experience with buying houses in the desired neighborhood, village or city. After you have filled in your preferences and they have been verified, you will receive an overview with the selected brokers.
Many people choose to get in touch with two brokers. Based on the known data, all selected brokers are appropriate for your needs. Still you should compare the two brokers to choose the best one. Below you will find some points on which you can compare the buying brokers:
Every buying agent has a slightly different approach. Largely these tasks are the same, but in some details it can differ. For example, does the purchase broker always accompany you to a viewing or does he or she only do that when you go to look at a house a second time?

Each broker has his own approach. So check if you are comparing matching real estate agent fees. Does it include VAT? And what tasks does the purchase broker perform? These are all aspects that can differ from one real estate agent to another.

Does the buying agent ask for a withdrawal fee or start-up costs? This can be a factor in choosing a real estate agent. Especially if it is still uncertain where you want to live. Maybe you want to live in another city after all, then this is certainly an important point to compare real estate agents on.
Of course, the peripheral issues of the two brokers must be good, but an important factor when comparing brokers is your feeling. In which broker do you have the confidence that he/she will arrange everything for you with the maximum result? This feeling is an important point to base your decision on. Do not just go for the cheapest real estate agent in whom you also have little confidence!
At Juiste Makelaar, we want to help you compare buying agents as best as possible. That’s why we allow you to indicate your preferences for the type of real estate agent you are looking for. Based on your preference, we compare the different types of buying agents especially for you. The different preferences all have different advantages. There are also a number of points that you should think about carefully before making the decision for a buying agent.
When you prefer a real estate agent with good buying experiences. Indicate that this is the most important thing the real estate agent should meet. Good qualities of a buying agent can be split up in a number of points. The purchase broker is communicatively accessible and is always there for you. In addition, the broker has a lot of knowledge of the purchase process, the neighbourhood and is familiar with various other brokers. Furthermore, the purchase broker is good at negotiating and very goal-oriented. Finally, the price-quality ratio of the broker is good.
If you find it important that the broker has a lot of knowledge of the neighborhood, select this option. The broker has a lot of experience with buying in this neighborhood or village. This way, the purchase broker is always well informed about what is going on in the neighborhood and which houses come up for sale.
Do you think the cost of a buying agent is the most important thing? Then it is best to select the preferred cost of the purchase broker. This takes into account that the cost of the buying agent is low. Of course, the quality of the broker is still of good, but do not expect the same service as with a broker with many good buying experiences.
An important question to ask in addition is whether the buying broker with a low brokerage fee can achieve the same results as a broker with more experience and knowledge? A real estate agent who charges a higher commission often does so for a reason. For example, the purchase broker achieves better results for the client or has a good network through which he regularly has homes for sale that are not yet on the market.
Prefer the best of everything? That is possible of course. Then we’ll look for a buying agent who has the best of everything. A reasonable commission, in the neighborhood and with good experience. It may be that one of the preferences exceeds the other, but that still makes it the best real estate agent for you! Curious? Find out now!

What does Juiste Makelaar do?
We are a real estate agent comparison service active throughout the Netherlands. Based on your preferences and our unique broker database we match you to the best broker for your situation. Before we put you in contact, we will contact you to complete the matching. This way there are no surprises. Then you will receive the selected brokers by email and they will contact you themselves. Then you choose the best real estate agent for your situation.
How do you compare real estate agents?
In the application we ask a number of preferences which we combine with the available broker data. After you have filled in this information we always contact you personally so we can complete the whole comparison.
Can I compare real estate agents anywhere in the Netherlands?
Yes, we can help you find a suitable real estate agent throughout the Netherlands. This is partly due to our many partners, so we can help you as best we can anywhere in the Netherlands.
What is a normal fee for a real estate agent in the Netherlands?
The average sales commission of a real estate agent in the Netherlands is between 1 and 1.25 percent. However, this naturally depends on what you agree with the real estate agent in question. You can think of a bonus agreement or a different set of tasks.
What does a buying agent cost?
The average brokerage commission in the Netherlands with a buying agent is between 0.5 and 1.0 percent of the purchase amount. With the buying agent, the commission depends on the purchase price, the activities and the place where you want to buy a house. Is the place or neighborhood very popular? Then the estate agent can charge higher fees.
What happens after I complete the equation?
Immediately after filling out your preferences, you will receive a confirmation. After that we will contact you by phone, unless you prefer to be contacted in another way. When everything is to your satisfaction, the two selected real estate agents will contact you. Finally, you decide with which real estate agent you have the best connection and with whom you want to work.
Can I also get a price list from real estate agents?
No, because all real estate agents in the Netherlands have a different working method, it is not yet possible to send a standard price list. This is partly due to various aspects, such as that you can agree performance bonuses with estate agents so that the standard commission is lower, or that you carry out a number of tasks yourself. Other reasons for not being able to give a standard price list are: the sales ranks of agent firms, the location of your home, quality of the real estate agent and extra services they offer.
Is this application through Juiste Makelaar free of charge?
Yes it is! This application is completely free of charge for you. We are happy to put you in contact with the selected real estate agents free of charge and without any obligation. At the moment you are finally helped with buying or selling your home, we ask a small fee to the broker, which means no costs to you.
