Top 5 Tips
Check out our top 5 tips on what you should and should not do when selling your property!
Of course, a well-presented property will always sell much faster than a poorly maintained one, but it’s also about appealing to as many potential buyers as possible.
By making sure your home is bright and welcoming to everyone, a bright, cheery home is more inviting to buyers. Let the sunlight in if you can, and switch all lights on when there is a scheduled showing.
People need to be able to envisage what the property would look like if they were living there. People often find this difficult to imagine, so make it easy for them to see all the fantastic living space you’re offering them. Remove all your clutter, toys, rubbish, clothes that may be laying around.
Giving your walls a fresh lick of neutral paint this will make your home seem lighter and bigger and do minor repairs to prepare your home for sale, it will be easier for the buyers to move in and use the rooms immediately than if the walls were still bright purple or lime green.
Most buyers make up their minds in the first few minutes of arriving at a property. The first time they set their eyes on your property is so important, so make sure you have the outside of your property looking clean and tidy, is the paintwork outside of your property looking good, is there are any bare walls or paint peeling off, a quick lick of paint to freshen up the look on your property will always help . If you have a garden is it looking neat and tidy, remove any dead plants and weeds etc, remember you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression.
Don’t forget to spruce up your yard and outdoor living spaces as well, stage the patio, terrace areas, deck and pool furniture, and all rubbish removed. A pressure washer is a great option for removing built-up dirt and grime from the outside of your house and the driveway, it’s a fast way to help your exterior shine and all these little points will help sell your property.
It goes without saying (or at least it should) that you should do your very best to eliminate offensive smells like pet, laundry, or cooking odours. If you want to increase your chances of selling your house, go a step beyond deodorizing and introduce a pleasant scent, using candles, essential oils, etc can do a wonderful job of creating a welcoming environment for house hunters.
If you have pets, then not everybody will fall in love with your pet the same way that you have. You may know that your pet Labrador is boisterous and friendly, but when he is bounding up with his tongue out to a prospective buyer who has come dressed up to view your property, this just might be the most terrifying thing they could imagine.
Having evidence of your pet, including their odours, can be a real turn off to some people, so try and find a spot where your pet can’t disturb the clients and shouldn’t interfere with the agent showing the clients around your property.
Kitchens rank very high on a home buyer’s priority list, and the condition of your kitchen can make or break a home sale. When staging kitchen countertops, don’t go overboard with your kitchen decor. Keep it simple, yet elegant, keep in mind that the more countertop you see, the larger the workspace will appear.
When getting your kitchen ‘sale ready’, you don’t need to spend a huge amount of money, instead, there are small things you can do to get the heart of your home ready for potential buyers. One of the most important thing is to declutter, simple things such as removing old appliances (kettle/toaster) and unnecessary clutter from the countertops will give your kitchen an instant lift. Your kitchen should look and feel as bright and spacious as possible and switch on all you kitchen lights when a viewing is about to happen, even in the daytime as it does help give that cosy warm feel.
Be aware of odors, it may be a bit of a cliché but a batch of anything home baked or the coffee percolator switched on will leave your buyers with a happy heart, remember your kitchen is the heart of your home.
Do you have all your paperwork ready for when the sale comes along. A copy of your Escatura / title deeds will be required to show the new buyer’s lawyer/solicitor. So have a copy of these ready for your agent to go over, this saves tremendous time in preparing for the sale of your property if your documents are all in order.
You will also be required to have both your electric bulletin and energy certificate for the property. It is always good to have a copy of your water and electric bill on hand as these will need to be transferred into the new owners name. Once the lawyer/solicitor is satisfied that all the paperwork is correct and in place then a deposit can be taken and a sales contract can be drawn up to purchase your property.

Your property costs when selling!
There are five primary expenses when selling your property.
- Capital gains tax,
- Plusvalía tax
- Energy efficiency certificate
- Electrical bulletin
- Lawyers/agent fees
Capital gains tax is:
@ 19% (for both residents & non residents) you will pay capital gains tax on your net profits from the sale. The net profit is obtained by calculating the difference between the purchase price and the sale price. Bear in mind that you could be exempt from paying CGT if you have lived in Spain for three years and you reinvest the money from your property sale into another main home. If you think you might be eligible for exemption, speak to a lawyer, as this can make a big difference on the fees you pay
You may be able to claim various costs against your Capital Gains Tax including:
- Lawyers or Solicitors fees
- Notary fees
- Estate agent fees
- Structural building work
- Home improvements, IE, kitchen, bathrooms, building work, tiling, swimming pool, etc. ( You must have receipts and copies of all the licenses and invoices. The copies will help you offset the expenses against the capital gains when you decide to sell the property in future, thereby reducing your capital gains tax on the vending of the property)
Tax Provision (Retención) (3% for non-residents only) on the declared sale price.
On the day that you complete on the transaction at the notary there will be a charged of 3% of the total amount which will be deducted from the final money that you will receive. This is a part payment of the main 19%, the rest of the payment will be made at the tax office.
Plus valía Tax
Plusvalia tax is paid to the local town hall where the property is located. The calculation is based on the increase of the value of the land, known as valor catastral, and the number of years you were the owner. The amount will vary from one town hall to another but this usually amounts to just a few hundred Euros.
Certificate of Energy Performance.
This has been compulsory in Spain since 2013, this is something you need to arrange when you put your property on the market. You cannot sell your property without this Certificate. It can cost between €80 to €350 Euros depending on the size of the property. You can ask your property agent to organize this for you.
The property must be handed over with the actual “ boletin” of electrics to prove the installation conforms to actual legislation and can be changed over to new owners. If the installation is older then 20 years a new bulletin will be required.
Solicitors / Lawyers fees
These are cost that are charged by your own solicitor or lawyer.
Bear in mind that you could be exempt from paying Capital gains tax if you have lived in Spain for three years and you reinvest the money from your property sale into another main home. If you think you might be eligible for exemption, speak to your accountant or lawyer, as this can make a big difference on the fees you pay.
Foreign residents who are aged 65 and over
The seller resident must be over 65 years old when the sale is made. If you are selling your primary residence you are not liable to pay capital gains tax. Again you will need to prove that you have lived in Spain for 3 years or more and intend to continue living here. If you intend to go back to your home country you pay 3% tax on the full declared price on completion and then in your next years tax declaration you can claim this money back from the tax office. If you don’t declare your taxes here, but can prove that you earn less than 11,200 euros per year, then you are exempt from paying Capital gains tax.
