SELLING YOUR PROPERTY IN SPAIN
When selling a house or flat in Spain, it is important to understand that the process differs from that in other countries and that it can take longer.
The ownership transfer of a property in Spain goes through a Spanish notary. This is how it works — up to the last meeting with the notary.

THE FOUR STEPS OF THE SALES PROCESS
There is a huge number of properties for sale in Spain, which can be a challenge when it comes to selling your home. That’s one of the reasons to choose a well-established estate agent that knows just how clients will find your particular property. You can read about the sales process below. But before we get there, as estate agents we have a big job ahead of us to sell your property at the best price. We divide this into four parts:
Agreement with the estate agent
Before the sales process starts, an agreement is signed with the estate agent that governs the terms of the sale. At this point, it’s important that you feel confident and safe with the estate agent. The estate agent will be with you throughout the sale, so it’s important that everything feels right. In the unlikely event that something doesn’t feel right, there is no problem changing to another Serneholt Estate agent. Your agreement is with Serneholt Estate, not an individual estate agent.
Naturally, we will look at your property to establish a valuation. We go through with you, as the seller, what other properties in the area have sold for and the condition of your property.
Now the real work begins. In order to get the right buyer and price for your property, it is important to be prepared. We use professional photographers to convey the right feel of the property. ‘A picture is worth a thousand words’ is not just a good saying; it can also be decisive to a property sale. To give your property the best chance to sell, we use a so-called 3D camera.
Once the photos have been taken, it’s time to start using all channels to find the right buyer. Your property will be advertised on social media, in newsletters and through property portals. A so-called open house is also an option.
We’ll probably show your property many times to different potential buyers, so it’s important to have follow-up so you know what clients say about your property. You can also be involved in the whole sales process if you want. Once we have found a buyer for your property, we begin the part of the sales process when we as estate agents guide you through a safe and secure sale for you and your buyer. We have summarised the process in a simple and informative sales guide.
