Setting a price that is too high for your property
One of the most common mistakes when trying to sell your apartment or house is to sell at a price that far exceeds that of similar properties on the real estate market. The price of a property depends on many factors: the current trend on the real estate market should obviously be taken into account, as well as the set up of your property, its condition, the need to renovate it or not, the area, location, etc. Entrusting your property to a real estate agency ensures you get the most suitable price because real estate agents are professionals in the field and are used to taking all these factors into account. With a more realistic price, you are sure to find a buyer quickly.
Displaying different prices on different websites
This is a mistake and it should be avoided. It is a very unprofessional practice and if customers see both ads, you are bound to look unreliable. An agency will avoid this error when marketing your property on various websites.

Not knowing how to present the property
It is very important to be prepared for any questions that a potential buyer might ask regarding prices, conditions of sale, etc. If you are unfamiliar with the real estate market and the regulations in Spain, this could be tricky. The agency is responsible for contacts with potential buyers and answers all those questions.
Remember, the first impression a customer has is the most important, so make sure that everything has been taken care of and looks perfect before putting your property for sale.
