How to sell my house in Barcelona, Sitges, Vilanova i la Geltrú
Dupont Estate

Excellence in real estate sales: A meticulous approach that makes the difference.

Selling a property at the best possible price, in the shortest possible time and with total security, requires a perfectly orchestrated series of online and offline actions from the beginning to the end of the process.

In addition to selling a maximum of five properties at any one time so that we can focus all our efforts on YOUR property, we implement a meticulous method that has been proven to offer an above-the-rest service and secure a rapid and streamlined transaction.

01 Optimal valuation

We help you to estimate the ideal published sale price of your property. An accurate valuation of your home enabling us to plan a price strategy is the first key factor for optimising your time and the final sale price.

02 Home staging

We advise you on how to enhance the value of your home before the photographic report and on-site viewings are carried out. If you do not live in the house you are putting up for sale, we will carry out a home staging ourselves, which will make your property more attractive to more buyers and thus sell it more effectively.

03 Photo report, video and virtual tour

A professional photographer produces the most relevant photo report, video, and virtual tour of your property for publication on property websites. The quality of the visual material is extremely important to present your home in its best light and to achieve effective viewings.

04 Floor plan

If you don’t have one, we'll prepare a floor plan of your property. Many buyers ask for one. A floor plan allows them to better project themselves in their new home and to visualise the possibility of carrying out certain works.

05 Multilingual top-rate description

We take the time to write a top-rate description of your home in Spanish, Catalan, English and French that not only highlights the physical characteristics of the space but also its more emotional aspects and thus better communicate the benefits of your home to potential buyers. If your property and its location are specifically geared towards other markets, we can translate the description into other languages (German, Italian, Dutch, Russian, etc.).

06 Publication on more than 100 property websites

We create and publish your property ad on more than 100 real estate portals, both local and international, guaranteeing a premium positioning. So that we ensure that whoever seeks a property like yours will find it. We work with you to make sure that the advert for your property is as attractive as possible for buyers.

07 Private and social network

We send your property ad to our private network (property alert sent to our database, to property hunters, to foreign agencies...). We also publish it on our website and on our social networks.

08 Targeted digital campaigns

We create digital campaigns for your home aimed at national and international audiences looking for a home like yours. We mainly use Google Ads, Facebook Ads and TikTok Ads.

09 Immediate attention

We respond to all enquiries from interested buyers, often immediately and always within 24 hours. “Our sales agent will call you back... maybe” doesn’t form part of our culture. So, you don't miss any opportunity.

10 Convincing viewings

We coordinate the schedule and show your property to potential buyers. Most buyers view a dozen or so properties and it usually comes down to choosing between two of them. Showing them a property in the right way will help make it the one they choose. If an interested buyer lives abroad, we can provide virtual guided tours thanks to new technologies.

11 Negotiation

We offer you advice throughout the negotiation process so that you get the best deal. We rely on negotiation skills that combine empathy, technique and creativity to find mutually satisfactory solutions.

12 Buyer assistance

We assist the buyer in completing the procedures required to purchase your property, particularly if he or she is a non-resident (obtaining a NIE - Foreigner's Identification Number - , getting a Golden Visa, opening a bank account, taking out a mortgage, etc.).

13 Documents

In parallel to the above actions, we guide and assist you in obtaining all the documents required to sell your property, including:

  • Property/Land Registration Certificate
  • Occupancy Certificate, also known as the Habitation Certificate
  • Energy Performance Certificate
  • Most recent minutes of the residents' association meetings
  • Property tax, paid for the entire year
  • Mortgage cancellation deed or mortgage balance
  • Original property deed

14 Preliminary sale agreement

We draft the preliminary sale agreement. If you or the buyer so require, we'll translate it into your or his mother tongue. We'll tell you how and when to sign the preliminary sale agreement to secure the transaction, especially if we sign it remotely, which is legally valid and increasingly common to avoid travelling, save time and money.

15 Deed of sale preparation

We collect and coordinate all the information and documents that the notary requires to draw up the deed of sale. We coordinate the schedules of all the parties (buyer, seller, bank, notary) to set the day and time for signing the notarial deed of sale.

16 Signing of deed of sale

It is the big day for everyone. Together with our lawyer who has overseen the entire transaction, we accompany you to the notary’s office with the satisfaction of handing over your property to its new owners. We make sure that no document is missing so that the notary can authorise the signature with complete peace of mind.

17 Follow-up

After congratulating you, we remain by your side until the transaction and the correspondence with the buyer are fully completed. Amongst other things, we will make sure that the following is done:

  • Notification to the community of co-owners of the change of ownership.
  • Notification to the town hall of the change of ownership of the property tax (IBI).
  • Notification to the town hall of the change of owner of the rubbish collection tax.
  • Change of ownership of water, gas and electricity contracts.

And, of course, we keep you informed about all important developments and are at your complete disposal during the process, either in person, by email, WhatsApp or phone call - we are here to help you!
