Selling property in Spain

When selling a home in Spain, it is important to know that the process is different compared to Sweden and that it often takes a little longer.

Selling a Property in Spain

When selling a property in Spain, it's important to be aware that the process may differ from other countries. SkandiaMäklarna Real Estate assists you throughout the entire process.

Seller's Responsibilities

As a seller, you are required to have an energy performance certificate for the property before the sale. This certificate must then be handed over to the buyer during the sale. SkandiaMäklarna can recommend skilled partners who perform energy performance certificates. As a seller, you should also provide documentation about the property, such as proof of ownership, certificate of occupancy, information about property tax, association fees, etc.

How is My Property Valued?

Before your property is listed for sale, its value is assessed. Our real estate agents analyze the market conditions in the area, present reference sales, and identify what is currently for sale in the area. With a proper valuation, we can collectively set the right price to optimize your sale. Our agents can also provide tips on how to enhance the property to maximize the chances of achieving the best final price.

Contact SkandiaMäklarna for a valuation meeting to get an assessment of your property's value. We have access to a wide range of data and have good reference prices for sold properties where we operate.

Financial Considerations

What is the actual operating cost of the property you want to sell? What future repair needs exist, and at what costs? Your potential buyers will want to factor this into their price perception. We assist you with these calculations.


Before the selling process begins, a service agreement is signed between you and the real estate agent. The agreement regulates the sales assignment.

Property Presentation

Through attractive property presentations, we create the best conditions to attract the right buyers to your property. Our experienced agents know what is essential to generate interest from potential buyers. Beautiful pictures and videos of the property are often crucial to capturing interest in the competitive real estate market, as well as visibility on the right international platforms. Our agents also provide advice on potential improvements to the property to enhance its market appeal. Schedule a meeting with a real estate agent for more information on how to optimize conditions to reach the best final price in a sale.

Once you, as the seller, have reached an agreement with the buyer, a private purchase contract is signed, known as "arras" or "Option de Compras." The contract specifies the price and possession date. When the contract is signed, the buyer pays a down payment as a partial payment of the final amount, which is paid on the access day. 

The notary receives the payment and is responsible for paying accrued taxes and fees, as well as distributing the final amount to you. You hand over the keys to the buyer, who can then take possession of the property after the meeting.

SkandiaMäklarna assists you throughout the entire selling process to create a secure and reliable process from the first meeting to possession.
