Real Estate Brochures
In order to avoid possible risks like buyers not being able to complete transfers of ownership, encountering structural safety issues, having unusual provisions for usage beyond regular usage methods, finding themselves unable to actually use the site, or being unable to secure a loan, or other issues like sellers or agents providing inaccurate information and thus causing disputes, in 1989 Sinyi Realty became the first real estate business in Taiwan to offer real estate brochures. Each customer that commissions Sinyi Realty also enjoys the production of real estate brochures.
A real estate brochure could be considered an “ID card” for a property, containing not only a full record of property rights survey results, but also the sales commission service contract, outline of the subject’s status, market information, ownership certificate, household registration transcript, cadastral map, housing condition, and other such information. This helps the buyer get a clear understanding of the internal and external condition of the property, avoiding potential disputes. In 1999, the government formally wrote into law the requirement for real estate brokers to provide such brochures to customers, adjusting what must be listed in them in October 2015, adding almost 100 additional items of content to provide a fuller picture to buyers.
In 2017, Sinyi reviewed all 82,098 brochures produced, finding a total of zero customer-reported errors in said brochures. Sinyi’s Appraisal Department conducts a two-stage review of the accuracy of real estate brochures, with one group conducting initial reviews and another the second reviews. Should at any point an error be indicated by another department, those responsible are awarded a gift certificate, helping further facilitate the minimization of errors.
