HOW TO SELL MY HOUSE


Selling a house today is much easier than it was 10 or 20 years ago. Thanks to technological advances, it is easier to reach the target audience, i.e. potential home buyers. To take advantage of this, throughout this guide we will show you some of the methods you can use:

GET YOUR HOUSE SOLD ON THE INTERNET


Selling on the internet is becoming easier thanks to the large number of digital portals specialised in selling houses that we can find. These portals have a very simple interface in which you only have to upload photos of your home and specify the facilities of it.

There are many specialized portals in the real estate sector that can help you sell your house on the Internet, however, the ones that stand out the most among private individuals are

Idealist

Fotocasa

Floors.com

Yaencontre

Habitaclia

If you want to know more about these portals, we leave you a small guide of real estate portals to learn more about them.

ADJUSTING THE PRICE OF THE PROPERTY TO THE MARKET PRICE


Competition also applies to the property market. Therefore, you should look at the price of those homes that have similar characteristics to yours. Thus, if there is a home in your area with similar characteristics to yours and it is selling at a lower price than your property, you should consider modifying the selling price. Do you want to sell your home? Don’t lock yourself into a single price!

TAKE CARE OF THE PRESENTATION OF THE PROPERTY


Both when taking professional photographs to post on the above-mentioned websites, and when showing the property to potential buyers, the presentation of the property is essential.

There are many people who go to see houses and do not buy them simply because they were untidy and badly presented. Taking care of the small details of the home can make a big difference when it comes to selling a property.

STEPS TO SELL A HOUSE


To sell a property, a process must be followed. Therefore, in this guide, we bring you some simple steps to sell a house that you must follow if you want to increase the possibility of selling your property.

DECIDE WHAT THE PRICE OF THE PROPERTY IS GOING TO BE


Take a look at the real estate market! Look for homes similar to yours and adjust your price based on the competition. In this way, you will have more chances of making your home attractive to buyers.

ADVERTISE THE PROPERTY ON THE INTERNET


While you can give visibility to your property on the digital real estate portals mentioned above, you can also advertise the sale of your property on different digital media. We recommend the use of Facebook Ads and Google Ads to increase the visibility of your property on the internet.

ATTEND TO VISITS AND POSSIBLE QUERIES FROM POTENTIAL BUYERS


After having given visibility to your property, you will begin to have enquiries from people interested in acquiring your property. Therefore, you will have to attend to all kinds of doubts as soon as possible, since buyers will be interested in more properties.

Offering the best attention and receiving in your house the buyers with a good availability will be definitively something that can decant the balance in your favour.

AGREEMENT OF SALE


After having agreed on the price at which the home will be sold, as well as the details of the purchase, it is highly recommended that you sign a deposit contract.

This document is an agreement between the buyer and seller in which both parties undertake to carry out the sale and purchase of a property. It sets out the agreed terms of the agreement, the periods within which it is to be carried out and specifies the clauses of interest to both parties.

SALE OF THE PROPERTY


Once the sale has been agreed and a deposit contract has been drawn up, the public deed must be signed before the notary and the keys handed over to the buyer.

TAXES WHEN SELLING A HOUSE


When you sell your home in Spain, you will have to pay a number of taxes. Among them, we find:

VALUE ADDED TAX (VAT)

PERSONAL INCOME TAX (IRPF)

STAMP DUTY

TAX ON THE INCREASE IN VALUE OF LAND OF AN URBAN NATURE OR MUNICIPAL GAINS (IIVTNU)

TRANSFER TAX (ITP)

SELLING A MORTGAGED HOUSE


For various reasons, many people decide to sell their home before they have finished paying their mortgage. If this is your case, you should know that in this situation it is possible to sell your property.

On the one hand, you can sell the property and cancel the mortgage with the money obtained, so you should try to sell it at least for the same price as you have left on your mortgage.

On the other hand, it is possible that the buyer will assume the debt when buying the property, thus subrogating the mortgage to him.

You can find more information about this in this small guide to mortgaged homes.
