Be flexible with the viewing time, it can be a little tough to arrange viewings exactly when you want, remember good properties are often occupied.
Start your search early, so you have plenty of time to look around and find what you like.
Ask your property consultant to clarify the full process of buying or renting from the start, so you are more confident when it comes to closing the deal.
Good properties always go quickly, so if you like something try to move quickly and secure it with a holding deposit.

Tips to Sellers/Landlords
Below are a few recommended tips on how to provide the property consultant with the best tools to assist in selling or renting your property:
Full details of the property need to be provided, make sure you meet the consultant at the property, and allow them to get a full feel of the property, to be able to assess the property. Inform them of all advantages the property has, and point out any extra work you might have carried out on the property.
Provide the property consultant with full documents required for sale, right from the start, it will get them excited that you are on board to help him provide his best service.
Documents must include:
Proof of ownership
Passport copy of the owner
Certificate of completion of payment
The latest payment of your service fees
Allow the property consultant to take photos of the property, to assist them with marketing the property.
Only work with RERA approved agents/consultants. Be careful not to just allow anyone to work on your property, it may lead to the clients receiving the wrong information about your property and you!
Make sure you provide full information, your contact number and email address to allow the agent to easily contact you when needed. Let us know what is the best method and time to contact you, so that you are not disturbed later.
Help the property consultant have fast access to the property. It is a good idea to leave a copy of the key with us, provided you take a receipt for that. If you can not provide a copy of the key, make sure there is a letter provided to the security of the building to allow the agent to access the property with no issues. This will help us take as many clients as possible. Our data shows that on average a property needs to be viewed by 10 different clients before a deal is closed, the quicker you get the clients to visit the quicker you will sell or rent out your property. Furthermore property consultants are more motivated to work on properties where a viewing is very easy and fast to organize.
Remember that property consultants will be more likely to recommend your property to other clients who might not be looking specifically for a property like yours, but because the agent can view it easily, they are more likely to try to convince the client to have a look.
Give a true picture to your property consultant, they are there to help you, and put a large amount of their time into your property, be honest and truthful with them. Remember they only get paid when the deal is closed, so if they feel that a client is not very serious about selling/renting the property they might put their valuable time elsewhere.
Give your property consultant a target, and perhaps link it to a commission, this way they will put more time to your property if they feel there is an extra incentive.
Don't advertise with too many companies. Buyers/prospective tenants, will use this against you by making multiple low offers from different companies. To the owner it will look like different client offering very low offers, and will not assume it's the same client.
Let us advise you on the market price, don't ignore the market reality. At any one time the market dictates the price, you need to make sure you achieve a sale/rent quickly and the process is smooth, with no complication or taking too much of your own personal time.
Make sure your property is clean and all damages are fixed. It will give the impression that the property is well maintained and will attract a higher price.
Give your property that extra edge, let the property consultant suggest small changes to help you better sell your property. Sometimes it could be a change of color or a small upgrade that makes a large difference.
When decorating your property, try to choose items that the majority of people would like and don't just consider your own personal taste. Go for contemporary and fresh feel.
Make sure your property is clean and tidy and fresh smelling, keeping the AC on before and during a viewing is a must.
Make sure there is electricity in your property, you don't want to limit your property to be viewed only during the day. A lot of client can only carry out viewing during the night, after their work.
If your property is furnished and you want to sell it without the furniture, don't remove the furniture till you sell the property. Furniture can greatly improve the look of the property when done correctly, and can give the impression to the prospective client of how it will look when they live in it.
Be very clear from the start on all the fees involved. Let your agent advise you on that.
When you have a buyer, be flexible for the time frame of the transaction and the conditions on the agreement, provided it protects you fully. When two parties are involved in the negotiation, it cannot always be your way or the highway.
Read the Sales and Purchase agreement carefully, and make sure you are happy with all the terms and conditions and that your interests are covered. All agencies have a draft of the purchase agreement/tenancy contract available. You might choose to request it and read through even if no deal has been presented to you as yet. It will help you be more confident when the deal is in its closing stages
