How long will it take to sell my house?
Selling a house is a long process in which many details come into play. In Spain, according to recent studies, 85% of homes are sold in less than a year, although it all depends on a number of factors. The location of the property, its condition and the price may be some of the most important factors.
In Spain, the fastest way to sell a property is through a proptech (it takes an average of 6 months). The majority of people, on the other hand, usually sell their homes with the help of a real estate agency (an average of 9 months). The least recommended option is private sale, as it usually takes a year or even longer.
Geographical location and time of year
Geographic location is a key aspect in selling a home faster or not. In cities like Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia or Seville it takes much less time to sell a house. Timescales can be shortened to the point that, with a little luck, a house can be sold within 4-6 months.
Interestingly, another factor in selling a home faster is the time of year. February, March, April, May and June are the best months to start selling a home. During these months, there is usually much more activity in the real estate sector and the best offers.
For all this, it is very important to study the sales periods in the area and analyze the availability we have to get to work with the sale. In addition, it is almost essential to consult a real estate expert so that he can offer us all the necessary information regarding the procedures to follow and the documentation required for the sale of the property.
