Selling your house in Spain?

Spain News

Numerous guides, blogs and websites are full of information about buying a property in Spain. Advice can be found everywhere. What do you know about selling your house in Spain? Where do you start and what must you take into account? 

Of course, “preparing yourself thoroughly” is the most heard advice when selling a property. Yet that is extra important in a country like Spain. Because, as is already well known, the real estate market in Spain functions very differently to that of the UK. Therefore, it is best to be guided by experienced professionals, well versed in the Spanish real estate market. 

Who are your potential buyers?

Knowledge of the buyers market is also required. Who are your potential buyers? This can depend to a large extent on the location of your house and the type of house you own. One nationality may prefer an apartment close to the coast. Another may like to live in a modern house with lots of light. Whereas, another group could require a lot of outdoor space in the form of a terrace, patio or garden.

Where do you find the potential buyers? 

If you already know where your potential buyers are coming from, you also need to know where to find them. For example, if your home is on the Costa del Sol in southern Spain, you can count dozens of nationalities among your target group. Therefore, focusing only on the British market would significantly reduce your target audience. Also, since the lockdown, there are many Spaniards searching for houses with more outdoor space. 

How do you reach potential buyers? 

Once you have an idea of ​​those buyers, you then need to know how to reach them. Simply hanging a “Se vende” sign on your home is unfortunately not enough. In addition, you still must determine the asking price. This must match the current market. It is not based on how much you originally paid for your home. 

Choose guidance from a professional 

For answers to these questions and to ensure you don’t overlook things that perhaps could cost you a lot of money, it is indispensable to engage a good sales broker. Moreover, the broker should have experience in the area where your home is located. Based on his/her knowledge, experience and professionalism, he/she will help you promote your Spanish property in the best possible way through the correct channels. In addition, help is provided with the entire viewings process as well as taking care of all necessary documents. And, most importantly, to find a suitable buyer as quickly as possible.
