THE SALES PROCESS STEP BY STEP

Brief and simplified explanation of the process of selling a property:

Step 1 – The Offer
When the buyer has decided to buy your property, delivery of the Offer will occur. This is the legal mechanism used for the buyer to inform the seller that he or she is interested in buying the property and the price they are willing to pay.

The Real Estate Agent of the buyer is the person in charge of guiding the buyer in the creation of this document. This offer must include the approval letter for the mortgage if applicable. If the purchase is to be made in cash, it must include a bank statement corresponding to the funds to be used by the buyer.

Step 2 – Acceptance of the Offer
If the offer is agreeable to you, instructions will be given to a “Title House” to create all pertinent documentation regarding the transfer of the property. This is done by specialized lawyers. For this, the buyer must make a reservation of the property they wish to buy by paying a percentage of the amount, which usually ranges between 5% and 10% of the final amount of the offer. This money is placed in a security deposit (Escrow Money Deposit). If it is a building in the pre-construction stage, the procedure could vary.

Step 3 – The Closing
Once the lawyers have thoroughly studied the title of the property, a date will be set for the signing of the sale contract. At the time of signing, the payment for the remaining amount will be delivered and the transfer of the title will be made to the new buyer.
