How to Sell Your Home in Spain

2. Preparing the property

To be able to sell a property, it should be well maintained. If you have not been in the dwelling for a while, make sure it is cleaned and aired, all fittings function, the garden is tended to, the swimming pool cleaned, and that damaged curtains or furniture be repaired or changed. A small investment in preparing the property may make the difference both in the time needed for the sale as well as the price obtained.

Prepare the papers. You should have copies of your title deed (escritura) and a "nota simple" from the property register, ready to show to any interested buyers, so that they can see you are still the owner of the property and that there are no outstanding debts related to the property. That paper is a very good selling point.

In addition, you must have the latest receipts, for the local rates (Impuesto de Bienes Inmuebles), for electricity, water and fees to the Community of Owners.

If you are selling the property furnished, you must prepare a complete list of furniture and even photos of the most important pieces.

You may also decide to have an evaluation done on the property. That will give you a realistic idea on what price you can ask, and it will assist you in convincing a potential buyer. Such an evaluation can be done by specialised valuation firms, by a real estate agent, by a surveyor (aparejador) or architect.
