A terraced property, also known as a terrace house or row house, is a type of residential building that shares side walls with its neighbors on both sides. Terraced houses are often found in urban areas and were popular in the 19th and early 20th centuries as a way to provide affordable housing for workers and their families.
Terraced houses typically have a narrow, rectangular footprint and are two or three stories tall. They are built in rows, with each house sharing a party wall with the adjacent properties. The front of the house usually faces the street, and the rear of the house may have a small garden or yard.
Terraced houses often have a uniform appearance, with identical or similar facades and rooflines. The interior of the house is typically divided into small rooms on each floor, with a staircase connecting the floors. The ground floor usually contains a living room, dining room, and kitchen, while the upper floors contain bedrooms and bathrooms.
In some countries, such as the United Kingdom, terraced houses are protected by conservation laws and are considered an important part of the architectural heritage. They are still popular as affordable housing options in many cities, and some terraced houses have been converted into flats or apartments.
Some of the homes offered in this section may not exactly match the definition, yet the feel of the property in its locationis very much the same.

The 'For Sale By Owner' (FSBO) option to advertise is typically executed via a preferred Property Portal website and is usually a pure online activity in exchange for a payment that can vary anywhere from around €100 per annum to €3,000 for a fully serviced listing and marketing campaign. But let Moulin.nl surprise you!
Using a listing agent can be relatively costly and also varies from country to country. In countries where it is more common to appoint an estate agent with an exclusive sales mandate, the commissions are usually lower and typically between 1% and 2% ex VAT.
In many countries though, like Spain and France for example, residential homes are usually sold by way of a non-exclusive mandate where commissions will be anywhere from 3%-5% for higher priced properties and even up to 10% for properties with a list price of under 100,000. Property owners often extend non-exclusive mandates to be listed with a few regional and also more internationally oriented agents or portals which can often lead to a portal showing the same property at different prices and sometimes even different locations.
The 3 options that residential property owners have for selling their home are:
Moulin.nl has been active since 2003 in a number of niche markets like Mills, Chateaux, Manor homes, Farmhouses etc. and offers the FSBO option with a very competitive price and listing solution. Properties can be listed on our expanding Portal with descriptions in the 6 primary languages English, French, German, Spanish, Italian and Dutch. All property details are always and automatically shown in all these languages.
Make sure the estate agent does not wear 2 hats. The agent you appoint must protect your interest in receiving a realistic price for your property. His interest is to sell the property as quickly as possible and earn a commission. This can sometimes lead to conflict of interest and ideally a potential buyer appoints an independent registered surveyor to inspect the property and at his/her own expense.
Do you need a valuation for your property from a surveyor or well trained and educated professional property agent? Most of the time this is not necessary. You know what your house is like and what it really offers in terms of quality and status. You will know whether your property has more to offer than the average home for sale in a similar neighborhood and of similar size. Scanning the web therefor gives you a pretty good idea at which price level the property can be pitched. Driving through various neighborhoods to do some research can help a lot to determine a best offer price for your home and after scanning the internet again. In slow or fast markets, a different strategy will apply and you can find a lot of good information on the internet how to approach your pricing strategy depending on your time window for the execution of a successful sale.
The "For Sale" sign outside the property can be an important part of your strategy. If the property is in a secure zone or location showing a 'For Sale' sign can speed up the time to realize a sale. Owners of larger properties should be aware that any public information available on the internet, such as an aerial view image, an address or any visible sign will lower the security status of the property to a certain extend. A lovely well-maintained property in a good location will always find a buyer even if no exact address is provided at first. Once the request comes in the seller can start the vetting process and eliminate early potential tourism
Several popular websites let borrowers search for homes. It is often recommended to put your FSBO home on as many websites as possible, including some which are for free. This strategy can be very counterproductive as we have found over many years of Internet advertising. Especially niche properties, such as typically shown on the Moulin.nl websites, will be researched in all the places where they are found on the web, and if something isn't quite right that property becomes a 'no go'.
Serious buyers will spend a lot of time researching and therefore you will do better starting with a listing that can satisfy your goal and also to test out. The Moulin.nl offer should not disappoint in this respect and you can start right now by clicking one of the links on this page.
If you choose to do this yourself, it is easier than you might think. A buyer has the right to choose the notary or he/she can choose someone you know. It is up to them and it will take as long as is typical in a certain region or country. If you are really happy with a realistic asking price the negotiation should be simple. You may wish to markup the price just a little to give a buyer some room for success, but that also depends on the conditions of the property market at that time.
Prepare you house to be in a clean and generally repaired condition and be ready for quick visit requests. Little paint jobs can make a big difference as well as less and easy positioned furniture and other articles in the various rooms. Remove any non-relevant items before taking a picture such as vacuum cleaner in the room or a cleaning cloth on a table.
Take time to photograph every aspect of your property, both interior and exterior, and upload the best photos to the website listing. Make more than one digital image of every aspect and choose the one with the best quality and lighting. Quick photo jobs are often counter-productive.
Buyers like to feel free when visiting a house to buy. Make them feel at home with a few flowers or plants here and there and a fresh smell throughout. Then give them space to wonder around and talk freely without your presence.
