Seller's FAQ

What will you charge me to sell my property?

Agency commission: The commission is usually 2% of the achieved sales price. (1% Seller + 1% Buyer)

What do you recommend in terms of presenting my property?

If your property is in an area where there is a high demand, you don't need to do any more than making sure the property is clean and ready for photography. Should your property fall into an area with lots of supply we will find a way to highlight the unique selling points.

What documents do you require from me?

Proof of ownership - which could be the Title Deed, Sales and Purchase Agreement, Mortgage Agreement and Proof of Registration on the Land Department's Registry or Interim Registry – a copy of your passport with a residence visa page (if applicable). If this is your first time with us, any final bills regarding DEWA and District Cooling and Service fees if you have lived in it or had your property tenanted.

What happens if I have a tenant living in my property and the lease is still valid?

A tenant has the right to stay until the end of his Tenancy Agreement. The buyer would have to take the tenant over, as you would need to advise the tenant at least three months before the end of the tenancy year that you are selling the property and then, you or the buyer, could come to an agreement with the tenant on whether they want to renew.

Who will access and show Buyers around my property?

Our agents will show prospective buyers around your property. All we require from you are the keys. If you still have tenants living in your property they have to agree to viewings. We will make sure not to disturb them and agree on a suitable time to come and view the property. If you yourself live in the property we will agree to the best timings with you. It is worth noting that buyers often feel more relaxed when the owner is not present.

If I accept an offer will my property still be viewed?

Not if we have already received a deposit from the buyer.
