Guide for Property Sellers in Dubai

In Dubai, the real estate market is continuously adding brand new high-rise apartments and modern villas, requiring sellers to adopt strategic approaches to maximize their investment returns.

Let us navigate you through our comprehensive 10-step seller’s guide, crafted with invaluable insights from our local property experts.

Step 1: Partner with a RERA Qualified Agent

Acquire the expertise of a qualified real estate agent endorsed by the Real Estate Regulatory Agency (RERA), renowned for their in-depth understanding of the local market dynamics and commitment to exemplary client service.

Connect with one of our RERA certified agents to benefit from professional guidance throughout the selling process.

Step 2: Conduct Property Appraisal

Initiate a consultation with your agent to facilitate an accurate appraisal of your property, coupled with a comprehensive market analysis encompassing similar properties in the vicinity.

This assessment aids in setting a competitive price point to attract buyers, recognizing that the advertised price often diverges from the final sale price.

Step 3: Opt for Exclusive Listing

Consider exclusively listing your property with a single agent to streamline the sales process and enhance the quality of potential buyers, reducing the complexities associated with multiple-agent engagements.

Step 4: Hire a RERA Qualified Broker

Leverage the services of a licensed and qualified broker endorsed by RERA to effectively market your property to a network of prospective buyers.

Our team of RERA qualified brokers is equipped to represent your interests diligently throughout negotiations, ensuring a seamless transaction.

Step 5: Evaluate the Timeline

Understand the timeline challenges associated with property sales in Dubai, where cash transactions typically conclude within seven to ten days, while mortgage-financed sales may extend up to two months.

Step 6: Enhance Property Presentation

Elevate your property’s allure by undertaking deep cleaning, decluttering, and enhancing landscaping to create an inviting ambiance conducive to maximizing its sale value.

Collaborate with your broker to arrange professional photography services for compelling marketing assets.

Step 7: Organize Essential Documentation

Facilitate a smooth sales process by preparing all requisite paperwork in advance. Essential documents include your valid passport and visa (for expatriates), Title Deed, Affection Plan, maintenance fee receipts, DEWA bills, and tenancy agreements (if applicable).

Step 8: Accept Offers and Settle Mortgage

Upon receiving an offer, formalize the agreement through a legally binding Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), detailing the terms and conditions of the sale.

If the property is mortgaged, initiate the process of obtaining a Liability Letter from the bank, followed by settlement to obtain a Clearance Certificate and transfer ownership to the buyer.

Step 9: Secure No Objection Certificate (NOC)

Your broker will facilitate the issuance of a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the developer, confirming property clearance from outstanding charges or fees, ensuring regulatory compliance.

Step 10: Finalize Property Transfer

Finalize the property transfer process by visiting the Dubai Land Department, formalizing ownership transfer to the new buyer, and receiving payment via a manager’s cheque. Subsequently, a new Title Deed will be issued to the buyer, completing the sale.
