    In this article, the process of purchasing real property in Finland is treated. The owner of a real property may sell it freely by him/herself but normally a commission with a real estate broker for selling the property is made. A written sales contract must be signed by the seller, the buyer, and by a public purchase witness. The buyer must take care of the registration of the deed (apply title) and pay the transfer tax (four per cent). The commission fee to the broker (about 4 per cent + VAT) is normally paid by the seller.
