Property Seller’s Guide
Anyone wanting to sell a property for the best possible Price should not leave this to chance, but to an expert. Knowing how to sell a property is, unto itself, an art. If you decide to sell your Property in Spain, it is always advisable to count on the knowledge, support and experience of an leader Real Estate Agency, to look after your interests. SpainForSale.Properties has compiled a four-point checklist for anyone planning to put a Spanish home on the market today:
01.- Plan your sale. Decide if you are selling the property privately or if you want an agency do the work for you.
An agency will advise on valuation and price to advertise your property as they will have a better idea of the current market place and how to propertly market the property to sell it quicker and at a best price. Putting up a sign, telling everybody you’re selling, post it on the internet and get the buzz going advertisign it being creative.
02.- Energy Efficiency Certificate. The Owner of the building (or Owner of individual apartment units) acting as Seller or Landlord is responsible for commissioning the completion of the energy efficiency certificate.
03.- Get legal and tax advice and set a price. You will need to pay solicitor and notary costs; SpainForSale.Properties will help you with this. If you are not living in Spain you can give your solicitor ‘Power of Attorney’ which will save you a lot of time and money. A good Real Estate Agency can provide you with a list of solicitors.
04.- When you get an offer. These days buyers make low offers but are usually prepared to discuss the price. Understand the offer and what it includes. Make sure it covers all your costs and that you are happy with the buyer’s situation. If you consider the offer is good enough: Sign the Arras/ Contracto private de compraventa (pre-agreement contract). Ensure it includes the agreed selling price, what’s included and the date for the final payment. Don’t forget to include conditions in the contract (e.g. financing, survey results, planning). Deposit is paid in Euros (usually 10%). When the arras is signed, a deposit will normally follow. If the buyer pulls out they will lose the deposit, and more importantly if you pull out you will have to pay twice the deposit back!
05.- Finalise the purchase and the sign the Escritura Publica (the deed). Make an appointment with the local notary to view the signing and register it at the Registro de la Propiedad. You are free to choose any Notary you want.
