Here are some popular questions asked, when selling property in Spain.

What are my Responsibilities as a Seller?

You will need an Energy Certificate before advertising for sale or rent. Fines can be applied if your property does not hold an EC when being advertised.

The original copy of the EC will be handed over at the Notary. S.E Property Marbella can recommend competent partners who perform energy assessments.

As a seller, you must also provide documentation such as title deed, first occupancy license, information about property taxes and community fees.

Whats the Standard Commission Rate to Real Estate Agencies?

The standard agency fee in and around Marbella is 5% plus VAT, which covers the marketing, promotion, listing of properties and the viewing arrangements, follow-up with prospective buyers, property searches, providing background information and support throughout the buying process and beyond.

We never give keys out to clients, we always show properties personally and we will spend a great deal of time in our efforts to find the right buyer.

How Much Taxes do I Have to Pay Once my House is Sold?

Make sure that you are fully aware of your tax obligations when you put your property on the market.

We recommend you to meet with your lawyer and tax advisor, and find out your options to ensure there are no surprises when you enter into negotiations to sell.

Styling Your Property?

If you are planning to put your house on the market, it goes without saying that you are hoping to sell your home as quickly as possible and as close to your asking price. Set the stage for success with these tips for styling and upgrading your home.

First impressions counts and it all comes down to presentation.
A positive first impression is critical and most homeowners need help to ensure their home’s best features are highlighted so the home stands out from the competition.

S.E Property Marbella are always working together with the best home stagers on the coast.

Good home stagers know exactly how to present your home. They can titivate with throws, cushions and artwork, and move furniture around to make a home more appealing.

A home stager can also update a home to reflect current trends, which invariably gives it the ‘wow’ factor – something that might be missing from a similar house for sale in the area.

BUT I like the Style of my House, Why Change It?

Guess what? It is highly likely that your style may not suit those seeking to buy a house in your neighborhood.

Even if you have an awesome vintage-chic look going on to your property, rein it in and re-style to make your property appeal to the majority. You can bring your personal style back into play in your new home.
