Getting your documents and due diligence right
If the seller is a corporation, the buyer or the attorney should be provided with the additional following documents:
• Copy of the corporate documentation, including bylaws, up-to-date registration at the Mercantile Registry, and resolution authorizing the sale.
• Certification from the Internal Revenue Office showing the corporation is current with its tax obligations, specially Income Tax and Tax on Assets.
• Copy of the approved construction plans and permits
• Inventory of furniture, etc.
• Copies of the utility contracts and receipts showing that the seller is current.
• Copy of the condominium declaration and regulations.
• Certification from the condominium administration showing the seller is current with his or her condo dues.
• Copies of the minutes of the last three condominium meetings.
2. Staging your condo or villa
Add a decorative touch. A few green plants or a couple of pillows will bring life to any room.
Remove the counters. Put your juicer and blender in the cabinet. The same is true for your restrooms. Put your items in a drawer to keep them out of sight.
Increase the amount of lighting. Bright rooms make your property seem bigger. Allow the sunlight in by opening the curtains and raising the blinds. A well-placed lamp can make a big difference in areas with little natural light!
Take it easy with the rugs. Rugs don't photograph well and can make your space appear smaller.
Put a lid on your toilets. Keep it classy.
Don’t forget to stage outside too. Tidy your front porch and place nice planters near your entryway. If you have a deck, pressure washes it and add plants to give the space some life.
3. How to "stage" your land?
One of the most important parts of marketing your property is that the buyer can easily understand your property limits, even before they go to view it, especially if it is large.
4. Working with the right agent and agency
Worry not! Hundreds of thousands of buyers have purchased in the DR, and enjoy their properties in the Caribbean. Yet, smart buyers (and sellers) will understand the reasons why choosing the right real estate expert is important in Las Terrenas.
How long have you been working in real estate?
Do you primarily work with buyers or sellers?
How many active clients do you have at a time?
