1. Setting the right price
At the moment, Las Terrenas' real estate market still lacks a cohesive structure. Similar properties can be seen advertised at different prices for no apparent reason. This may confuse anyone, who tries to do their research and figure out the best price for their property. Consider this problem solved as our experts at Atlantique Sud have come up with a foolproof system to evaluate the monetary worth of real estate of all sorts.
In addition to considering the characteristics of your property, we can also give you access to our database so you can compare your price against properties currently for sale in your area and previous sales firsthand. This allows you to calculate a standard price, then run it against our data and make an educated decision on whether or not you can make the price higher or go a little lower to match similar offers in your area.
2. Finding the right buyer
When buyers look for real estate in Las Terrenas, they are often looking at purchasing new properties as their secondary residence. They tend to prefer something turnkey, and easy to rent, so they can easily slide into their new life or a new source of income and start making money right away.
Dealing with that type of client requires a skilled approach. In order to make their dream into reality, we first need the right infrastructure and methods in place, as well as processes that will guide the whole buying experience.

6. Achieving a high selling price
In addition to pricing correctly from the start, we achieve high selling prices by using our expertise in negotiation techniques. We manage our buyer's expectations by presenting the listing, preparing the offer, and guiding them toward the right price. So that in the end, instead of paying a low commission rate and receiving low offers, you are going to receive higher offers, you get more money and we are motivated to sell your property because you value our work. In return, we make it our objective to place you in the best position to negotiate the deals and get your property sold quickly and at its full price potential.
7. Enjoying competitive commission rates
The commission rates are normally paid by the seller, they are established by the agency and general standards and can sometimes be subject to reasonable negotiation, but don’t be surprised if your agent holds firm on how much they charge. It was recently reported that only 27 percent of agents are willing to negotiate the commission. It is important to understand that these rates motivate the agents to invest their time into selling your home, cover the costs of work and promotion that lead to a successful sale of your property, and take out a small profit. Still, our commission rates are standard and match what you would find in the US or other agencies in the Dominican Republic. Check out our commission rates below.
Properties < US$100,000 - 8%
Properties < US$250,000 - 7%
Properties < US$500,000 - 6%
Properties > US$500,000 - 5%
