North West Murcia Properties has been operational since 2013.

We have enjoyed tremendous growth which is based on commitment and honesty.

Our forward thinking and pro-active approach is proving very successful.

The split between Spanish and Northern European clients (both buyers and sellers) is equitable.

We have many new clients from the wider Northern European countries searching for Murcia properties.

Following 6 years professionalism, commitment and dedication from Alan Leaver the business is currently going through significant change.

From the end of September 2019 North West Murcia properties will be wholly owned by Cassie Ivins.

Cassie has worked along-side Alan for the past 4 years and has both the experience and attitude required to be successful.

Cassie also has many Spanish and English contacts and is very well respected. 

Also Cassie is bi-lingual with a strong understanding both culturally and n the Spanish and English spoken and un-spoken word

North West Murcia Properties advise that selling your home in Spain is not always a speedy process.

With this in mind, make sure you plan ahead.

The average sale in Spain typically takes 10 months.

Additionally, and as coastal areas remain the popular areas for x pats, selling inland properties can, comparatively,take even longer.

Of course, there is always good news.

On the positive side, careful preparation and smart decisions on your part can help speed up the process.

  • Is it the right time for selling your home?

  • Consider the price!

Although prices have not recovered from their pre-crash 2007 peak, property prices in Spain are generally on the up, 3.8% year-on-year. But this figure disguises huge variations across the country.

Although city prices have significantly improved, prices in Murcia have not.

Average property price for a Murcia:

  • Property purchased at the peak 153,000

  • Dropping to 95,000 during the economic crisis

  • Today the average price is 106,000

Equally important, consider the condition of your property

Be aware, selling your home requires more than an agent advertising a property on your behalf.

Your property needs to look attractive on the photographs the agent takes this will attract viewings.

Present your property at its very best

  • Tidy your property and de clutter.

  • Make sure your property is well decorated in neutral colours

  • Keep your garden tidy and attractive

  • Present your pool making sure it is clean and inviting

  • Have copies of utility bills to hand

  • Have a copy of the Escritura and Catastro to hand

To summarise, be realistic about the price, make your property stand out from the rest by presenting it to a professional standard.

How to choose an estate agent

Talk to a few agents before choosing one 

  • Equally important make sure you feel comfortable with your agent.

  • Additionally, look for someone with experience of working on behalf of people from the UK as well as, someone who belongs a professional body such as the AIPP.

  • Estate agent fees can be anything from 3% to 6% or even higher.

  • Make sure there’s clear written agreement about all charges you may be expected to pay including commission.

  • Also, there is nothing to stop you using more than one estate agent.

  • However, to many agents can suggest desperation. We recommend a local English agent and a local Spanish agent.

  • If you go with more than one estate agent, make sure they all put the property on the market at the same price to avoid confusing buyers.

If you’re not sure if this is the right time to sell, you might consider renting out your property instead.
