How to sell your property in Puerto Rico?

Tips for Selling Your Home

Homes sell year round in most markets but there are times when the market is naturally slow. Parents do not usually like to remove their children from school in the middle of the year forcing them to adjust to a new environment. There can be seasonal weather issues to contend with and during these times, fewer buyers may be available. If your are selling at these particular times, try to be flexible when considering any offers or you could still be trying to sell your home months down the road.

Before listing your home for sale with your Realtor, make sure all pet stains and odors are eliminated. Pet odor is a huge impediment when selling a home. Use a spray bottle with one part hydrogen peroxide (from a drugstore) and three parts water. Spray the affected areas and clean. This gets rid of the pet odors and many stains.

Locate all of your warranties. If you are selling a home, chances are that you will be leaving things like a refrigerator, an oven, and possibly a dishwasher. If possible, find these warranties and guarantees for anything that you include in your sale. Even an old user manual could come in handy to the buyer and learning this in advance of an offer will impress potential buyers.

Always be open to negotiations when selling your home. Be prepared to make a counter offer when buyers enter a lower than anticipated offer. During markets that are more difficult, buyers tend to look for bargains but do not become offended. Instead, you should counter with a price that makes you comfortable.
