Reach the right buyer at the right time

When you sell your property, it is important to reach the right buyer. We work actively with our vast customer register and enhance it using other digital channels. In Spain, a business transaction can take longer than you are used to, this is completely normal.

Responsibility

Before the sale you must make an energy declaration, which must be handed over to the buyer in conjunction with the sale. You should also be able to provide certain documentation such as proof of ownership, certificate of tenure, information about property tax etc. We are happy to help with good contacts.

Sales price

You might already have a property value in mind. We supplement that with facts from sales of similar properties at the time. Things that can affect the value are running costs, what repairs are needed and what they might cost. We are happy to help you with your calculations. Together we can come to a relevant value and a correct price.

Agreement with the Agent

Before the sales process can start there must be a commission agreement between you and the agent. The contract governs the sales assignment.

Purchase contract

Once you have come to an agreement with the buyer, a purchase contract is drawn up and signed – an ”Arras” or ”Option de Compras”. The contract states the price and the date of entry. In Spain, a notary is always involved when the seller and buyer exchange the purchase contract. The buyer is responsible for paying the notary's fees. The fees vary depending on the scope but are usually around 0.5% of the purchase price. When the purchase contract is signed, the buyer pays a deposit as part payment of the final amount, usually 10% of the purchase price. Final payment is then usually made on the date of entry. The purchase contract is then replaced by a new contract with the notary.

Payment

Our lawyers take the payment and are responsible for paying taxes and fees and then for distributing the end payment to you. You hand over the keys to the buyer who can enter the property immediately.

FAQ

The first thing we would like to see are all the documents for the property - such as the title deed, nota simple, energy certificate, latest electricity and water bill as well as community fee and IBI (property tax). The reason for this is that we need to check so that all documents are correct and that everything is registered correctly. 

We then book a meeting where we come and visit your home and make an evaluation of it. After that, we sign a contract where we agree that HusmanHagberg advertise the property, what price, the commission and other details important when you sell your home. When this is done, we photograph the home and then we publish it on our website, other marketing sites we work with, other digital channels such as social media and match your home with our customer register.
