Why sell with us?

Living and working since 1999 in Javea, we know the real estate market very well and have years of experience to organize a hassle free sales process. We place great value on a personal, but professional customer care. Honesty, efficiency and detailed consultation are important to us.

You haven’t heard from our business? This is normal because we are specialized in real estate via the Internet. Our customers do not start looking at properties once they are here, but they contact us already at the planning. Often the contacts are going on for a long time until it comes to buy a property. So our way of working is different, but also very successful.

Thanks to a successful collaboration with our partners in the area and from abroad, we can assure you of maximum coverage. Our buyers are mainly from France, Belgium, Germany and Switzerland. We speak fluent German, French, English and Spanish. 

Furthermore, we offer:

- Meaningful and quality photos with detailed description of your property,
- User-friendly website in 4 languages
- Website with excellent ranking (in German and French google)
- We help you to obtain all necessary documents
- If required, we can draft the legal binding sales contract
- We calculate the sum remaining after deduction of the costs to be paid and taxes
- We accompany you to the notary for the draft of the Public Purchase deed
- We change the title on all utilities (water, electricity, local taxes, etc.)

Important information for the seller:

- The capital gain tax is payable by the seller. For residents (at least the last 3 years), the rate is between 19-23% on the gain. Residents are exempt from that tax if they are aged over 65 or invest the gains in buying another property within 2 years.
For non-residents 3% of the selling price will be retained as advance. With the tax return, the sum due is determined and you will know whether parts or the entire advance is repaid or an additional payment is due. The tax rate is between 19-24% on the gain.
- Local Land tax (Plus Valia) is also charged to the seller. The longer the seller owned the property, the higher will be the tax. It is based on the cadastral value.

(1) In most cases the square meters of a property in the Title deed do not coincide with the physical reality. Nowadays, all built-up areas (covered terrace, cellar, pool etc.) must be included in the title deeds. Should this not be the case, an architect will survey the property and create a certificate for the notary. At the notary these additional square meters are added to the title deeds (declaración de obra nueva) (prior to the sale). The costs of updating the title deeds are for the seller. In the case of a large difference between the surface of the plot in the land registry and the cadaster office, the seller will have to pay to amend the said discrepancy adjustment of this difference.
