The process of buying and selling a home, while not complicated, does involve many stages and processes. The buyer must be well advised to make what will be one of the most important purchases of his life. 

It is key to know which are the needs that the new property must satisfy and to have clear the budget that we are going to destine for it.

The first step involves discovering the properties for sale either through the real estate portals or accompanied by an estate agent. When we have already selected some, the next step is to visit them. There are clients who know what they need and are not long at this stage. There are other types of clients, less mature, who do not know exactly what they need and visit properties that do not fit them. We recommend following the professional advice of a real estate agent. He or she will be able to detect which property is the most suitable for us and will make the search process more pleasant. He or she will use their experience and knowledge of the day-to-day market, knowing what type of properties exist by area and their value, to advise you correctly.


What is the next step when I find the house I like and how do I make a reservation for the property?

The immediate step after finding the apartment or house that we like, is to analyze the information related to the property: community fees, cadastral reference, energy certificate, certificate of habitability, …

In most cases, if we are already clear about our desire to purchase the property, a reservation is first made to block the property and withdraw it from the market during our study phase.

Then, if all the documentation seems satisfactory to us, we will move on to the next step in the process: the deposit or arras contract. After signing the contract, a period of time between 1 and 4 months usually elapses. At this point, it is normal to use this time to ask for bank financing (if we choose this route), prepare all the necessary documentation to be presented at the Notary’s office, both by the seller and by the buyer…

Finally, the process of buying and selling concludes with the signature before a Notary to process the public deed of the property.

As you can see, it is a process that involves prolonged accompaniment. Communication during this period is fundamental and it is one of the points in which BARNES shows its signs of identity as experts in the real estate market. Always very close to each of the movements, because we are aware of the special moment it means for our clients. It is a process in which it is necessary to have full confidence in your real estate manager who will not hesitate to advise you in each of the necessary steps to culminate your accompaniment in a satisfactory way.
