Introduction and service

FODEL – PROPERTY DIRECT FROM THE OWNER

You can directly contact the owners of the properties we advertise by using our website, indeed you can bypass the estate agent and liaise personally with the vendor. However, we do recommend that you engage the assistance of our experienced staff when embarking on the negotiations and contract for purchasing the property. Our staff speak English, Dutch, French, Spanish and of course Hungarian.

FODEL was established in 2013 in The Netherlands. Our website does not only advertise property but successfully sells Hungarian real estate to purchasers from the Benelux states as well as in Hungary. Our EU qualified and licensed estate agents operate in The Hague and in Hungary and we have associate agents and affiliates in Budapest, by Lake Balaton and elsewhere in Hungary, all of whom are available to assist in your property search, purchase, letting and management.

FODEL can act for you as a search agent, working with owners of off-market properties which are sold normally to pre-qualified buyers and not openly advertised. Equally, if you have found your dream property yourself, we can still help you with the purchase, negotiation and the subsequent registration of your ownership at the Hungarian Land Registry. Should you have property in Hungary which you wish to sell or let, please do not hesitate to contact us. Fodel can prepare an appropriate Hungarian language marketing package for your property. Using the power of attorney valid in Hungary, there is also the possibility for Fodel to act on your behalf in contractual matters, avoiding the need for you to travel to Hungary.
