Overseas Dreams – Selling property on the “Costa del Sol”

EWN talks with property expert Peter Bowerman about the Costa del Sol property market.

Historically the peak selling times on the Costa del Sol are February to May and then September to November. So If you’re thinking about selling, we recommend you put your property on the market asap, as we are entering one of our busiest selling periods of the yearWe offer the best marketing packages on the coast and offer a lot of services in our standard fee, that other agents do not. Such as professional video tours of your property, which are then promoted heavily all over the world via digital marketing and social media. These video tours are our most effective tool to sell properties nowadays. We also advertise your property in the more traditional ways like radio, property magazines, newspapers and of course sending your property details to around 11,000 of our clients. prop
After 35 years helping clients buy and sell properties, I can confidently say that after choosing the right agent “Overseas Dreams” the next most important decision is choosing the correct initial marketing price. This is because the first 3 months of marketing usually offer the best selling opportunity, due to the surge of marketing that follows a new listing. If priced competitively, it should sell reasonably quickly. 
Any normal person left to value their own assets, are naturally going to try as high a price as possible. Many weak or inexperienced agents will take on properties at any price set by the vendor, for fear that the vendor may be disappointed with the truth and call another agent. This is not actually helping the seller at all and nearly always leads to a no sale.
An experienced and professional Agent will share his knowledge and give honest advice, even if it’s not what the vendor wants to hear. We discuss what price similar properties have sold for in the area and show comparable properties currently on the market, so our vendors can themselves understand the true value of their property and agree the correct marketing price.
Peter is one of the most published Costa del Sol property experts and was also on the panel of experts for Overseas Property Professional magazine, having spent most of his working life as a professional real estate agent and valuer. He is also the Managing Director of one of the coast’s top Master Real Estate Agencies “Overseas Dreams” offering over 16,000 properties for sale along the Costa del Sol..
