Why Use an Estate Agent to Buy/Sell Property?
For most people the purchase or sale of property may happen once or never appear in their lives at all, thus to avoid unnecessary complications by venturing into unchartered waters it is therefore important to engage a specialist with requisite skills in handling the transaction.
What is Sole Mandate?
This type of mandate gives the Agent exclusive rights to sell a client’s property on their behalf usually for a specified period of time as mutually agreed by the parties, this also precludes the owner from selling. In short, anyone interested in buying the property must deal solely with Crystal Real Estate. Thus, in the event that owner secures a buyer during the period of the sole mandate and transact, the owner is bound to pay commission due to Crystal Real Estate i.e. in other words the commission will be payable even if the person to whom the property is sold was not introduced to the property or Seller by the agent.
What is Open Mandate?
This type of mandate allows the seller to give his property to several estate agents of his choice, and in that regard no estate agent can claim sole selling rights i.e. the one who gets a buyer first will conclude the sell. Under this mandate, the seller can equally secure a buyer and transact between themselves without obligation to pay agents commission.
What is property Management?
Is the administration of residential, commercial and or industrial properties. Usually these properties are managed on behalf of the owners/investors who maybe corporate/individuals/family trusts etc. As property managers we act on behalf of the owners to preserve the value of the property while generating income. Managed properties include residential(houses,flats,clusters); commercial(offices/retail space) or industrial properties(warehouses, factory/manufacturing space). As property mangers/agents we earn a (%)commission based on rentals collected on the property varying with each property type.

Why Engage An Estate Agent to Manage Your property?
Following our own research through interviewing fellow estate agents and property owners on what really causes the major fallout between estate agents and property owners, we observed that differences mainly emanate from such small things as failure to manage utility bills i.e local authority rates/water; ZESA electricity; levies etc. Again from our research, most property owners are maybe corporates/individuals pre-occupied with their life professions or areas of specialty, in line with that, there is very little time and know-how in managing their own properties and tenants. To the contrary, Estate Agents are typically pre-occupied with property management as part of their duties, besides, agents possess specialty knowledge required in managing properties i.e. Rent Regulations etc
