Buying with Think Slovenia

 
 
We can assist you with every aspect of buying property Slovenia

Think Slovenia are fully licensed and insured Slovenian real estate brokers and our aim is to make the process of buying, developing, renting and selling property Slovenia as easy as possible for non-Slovenians, with high levels of personalised service from the planning stage through to search, viewing, negotiation, acquisition, furnishing, renovation, lettings, management and sales.

For non-EU buyers we are able to assist with all aspects of opening a company in Slovenia, as a vehicle for your property purchase.

 

Our general agency fee to buyer / seller is the same as the vast majority of Slovenian agents at 2% plus VAT. For properties on our site there is no other agency fee payable to any other agent.

Assistance opening a company in Slovenia

 

Many non-EU nationalities will need to open a company in Slovenia as a vehicle for their property purchase. We are able to assist with the process of opening a company setting up appointments with notary / bank and other relevant parties, meaning a straightforward, stress free experience for you.

 

Free bespoke property search service

 

For many clients coming to view properties from our site we also search the market for other properties on the market at that time that fit their criteria. This bespoke search facility is unique to Think Slovenia and is particularly useful for people looking in sought after areas or with specific needs – including land plots or development opportunities.

 

Our bespoke property searches not only often reveal properties in Slovenia that you would not otherwise find – as they are only advertised in local Slovenian language media, but it also gives you the peace of mind that you have had access to the widest range of the current properties in Slovenia that fit your criteria.

 

There are no upfront charges for bespoke search and fees on purchase are in the vast majority of cases identical to fees for properties listed on our website.

 

Viewing programmes to fit around you

The next stage is for us to organise a viewing programme of the most relevant properties in the time you have available in Slovenia, which for most clients consists of 10-15 properties in 2-3 working days.

 

Hand-holding through the purchase process

 

If you decide to purchase a property you have seen we will not leave you in the hands of third party agents or vendors, but will be with you right through the buying process helping you negotiate the best price, liaising with agents / vendors on your behalf, arranging for and advising on drafting and translation of contracts and putting you in touch with other professionals such as lawyers and surveyors as necessary until the keys are in your hands. 

 

Once the purchase is complete we can assist with Land Registry inscriptions of your ownership and possession rights.

 

For purchasers of properties not sourced via Think Slovenia, we can offer assistance of this kind through the purchase process on a consultancy basis.

 

Property Sales

 

If you are looking to sell a property Slovenia, at Think Slovenia we not only use our own website to market properties for sale but will suggest a bespoke approach for each property involving use of Slovenian media and co-marketing with our extensive network of partner agents across Slovenia.
