Sell property: Land, house, apartment
We are not estate agents, we are a family office with a private network of developers, investors, asset managers and investment funds. We can quickly and profitably acquire land and property that fits our acquisition profile. Why? Land is used, building plots are developed and old properties are redeveloped. Another advantage for you, besides the fast and profitable mediation, anonymity. None of our properties will ever appear in any of the usual real estate portals! You as a seller enjoy 100% discretion. Our family office has specialized in the area of off market real estate.
My name is Stephan M. Czaja, owner & founder of Lukinski. Learn here a lot about real estate investment, sales, taxes, and much more.

Buy land, apartment, house & Co.
Almost as detailed as selling real estate, we also discuss buying real estate in our free guides. Buy land, buy an apartment, buy a house or even an entire apartment building for rent. Real estate is extremely stable and sustainable relative to other forms of investment, such as stocks, foreign exchange, or even more speculative cryptocurrencycryptocurrency. They also generate a stable return every month, in the form of rent.
Who looks at the history and the development of real estate, or even the development of the various cities, whether A-location, B-location or C-location, the quickly sees, real estate is almost always a good deal. So if you can afford it, buy your first property.Buying your first property comes with many risks, just the subject of property valuation to check the finance, as well as the return on investment. With your first property, how are you supposed to determine if it is a solid property or if you will end up paying too much money? Property buyers therefore rely on experts with experience. Not without reason! Especially in the big cities, about 70% to 80% of the properties are bought and sold with real estate agents or consultants. So that you have an overview of what is involved in the process, what taxes you have to pay, how to find a good real estate agent and much more, learn here in our free guides on the subject of buying land, apartments, houses, real estate!
Value real estate
The real estate valuation is the basis for buyers and sellers. Without a well-founded valuation of an apartment, house or property, ultimately nothing works. If the offer price is too high, no interested parties will come forward. If the offer price is too low, many interested parties will come forward, but ultimately you will also lose a lot of money due to the incorrect valuation.
A 10% loss of the purchase price on a property worth 150,000 can quickly amount to a loss of 15,000. If you are the owner of a house in a good location, you can quickly lose 1.2 million and a 10% loss means a direct loss of 120,000.
Tip. Sell discreetly and directly to investors. The advantage: Good prices, through exclusive offers: Off Market Real Estate
But who does a property valuation, real estate agent, appraiser? Here you will learn everything important about the valuation of land and real estate. With this knowledge you can make the purchase or sale of your property much more efficient. After all, there will be no long waiting times due to offers that are too high or too low. Learn tips, e.g. the “quick valuations” through comparisons in apps and online portals. This way you can roughly evaluate your property and if you really want to buy or sell, consult an expert.
The topic BauBau concerns seller side as well as buyer side, just like the real estate evaluation. It starts with small reconstruction measures, renovation, redevelopment, e.g. for the increase in value, shortly before you sell your condominium or your house. Even those who only want to buy a plot of land do so either for speculative reasons (value increase) or because the plot is to be built on (project developments).
From small cosmetic repairs to full construction of apartment buildings and neighborhoods, we take a look at the construction industry, the big companies and of course the small beauty fixes for real estate sales.

Real estate financing
Who buys his first property, wants to set up his real estate portfolio, needs one thing above all, creditworthiness (solid finances) and a partner to real estate financingreal estate financing. Those who rely on lenders, as a rule, will work with banks.
There is a lot to learn, for example, have you heard of the leverage effect? The term leverage is familiar from the stock market, e.g. from share trading. But this principle is also used by banks to increase their equity capital. A rough rule says:
20% equity, 80% financed by the bank
But there are also ways and means by which you can buy or even build real estate with less equity. Learn more about the topic here:

Real estate as an investment
Real estate purchase, real estate sale, real estate appraisal and real estate financing, ultimately it all boils down to one goal, real estate as an investment. Additionally, you can save taxes with real estate.
Real estate as an investment is one of the most solid, profitable ways to build your own wealth. On a small scale for retirement planning, on a large scale for millions in sales, compared to many other industries. Because:
People always live here.
If you want to invest in real estate, it depends on one thing above all, the location! Location means 1) that you choose attractive areas where rents are also paid accordingly and there is little vacancy. But location also means 2) proximity.The 1st property you own is a lot of work, the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and yes, even the 6th property is still a lot of work. Of course you can hire a property management company, but many want to do the job themselves. That means conversely, anytime tenants call, the heat doesn’t work! The water isn’t running. A window is broken. The fireplace chimney is clogged. Lots of reasons why you need to get out on the spur of the moment.
The closer your investment properties are, the faster you can act and the less time you have to invest.
But the work is worth it. Because the knowledge that you build up can be used profitably for every other property.
Investment with 20+ units
Investors with larger budgets, of course, do not let themselves write standardized guidebooks, as well as for the first property. An investment portfolio of 10 million to be formed differs significantly from a package of 50 million. Who wants to found e.g. a WEG administration, which buys not less than 100 units, and already we speak of 20 million in A-location. Others are more willing to take risks, “as long as the yield is right”! Here you can also think about properties in C-location. If you need an experienced real estate consultant, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Learn about the different legal forms here, in Germany and in the USA. For private real estate buyers who buy a condominium as a retirement provision, it is not worthwhile to form a separate company and a complex construct. For those who want to rent out several units, need the appropriate legal form for their own forms.
Here we give an insight into the different forms of companies that can be founded in Germany and the USA. Of course, also with a focus on real estate and special forms, e.g. real estate GmbH, REITREIT and the family foundation.
In the individual articles and guides, you will of course also find cross-references to the individual tax typesTax types that are pending. You will learn more about the linkage and much more about large corporate constructs, e.g. the stock corporation. For those who no longer manage only 100 or 1,000 units, it is worthwhile to go public. A look at the real estate shares shows, they are profitable for the share giver and the share buyer. As said before, living is always!
Real estate taxes
When it comes to costs and expenses, people in all forms of business usually talk directly about personnel, as the biggest cost factor, “you can save here”! But, is it really like that? In fact, taxes are the biggest capital guzzler you have as a real estate investor.
Anyone who wants to deal with the real estate trade must always be an entrepreneur as well. Taxes are the A&O, already from day 1. From the simple basics such as sales tax, trade tax to specific types of taxes for real estate such as property tax and land transfer tax. Learn about the different types of taxes and maybe much more!
