First we would need to visit the property so we can make a recommend valuation and agree the asking price with the vendor, we will also estimate the selling costs.
Once the selling price is set we then take a full set photos, a video (depending on the size of the property) and collect room measurements. A copy of the following paperwork is required: Title deeds, IBI receipt, community payment and photocopy of DNI/NIE/passport.
The property is then uploaded to the internet and throughout our extensive network of websites which include our own websites, property portals in many different countries, to estate agency software for internal sharing purposes between agents (over 650 agents each with their own websites where many will show the property) and finally in print and window display advertising.
When we have a customer interested we will agree a time and day with the vendor and they will be accompanied by a member of our sales team for the viewing, after the viewing has taken place any feedback will be given by a phone call as soon as possible.
Once an offer has been made we will negotiate a mutual agreement and a deposit will be placed most commonly with a lawyer the same day. All copies of the paperwork previously given will be passed to the legal representative for checks.
We provide the buyers lawyer with a copy of the escritura, a nota simple (land registry search which we obtain) IBI and an inventory of any items involved in the sale and also a sales contract in at least Spanish and English. Providing all paperwork is in order we expect an exchange of contracts with a 10% deposit paid directly to the vendor. The time scale from agreement to signing the private contract is usually around 4 weeks.
