Selling a property in Dubai typically involves the following steps:

  • Hiring a real estate agent
  • Listing the property for sale
  • Negotiating with potential buyers
  • Signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the buyer
  • Paying the real estate agent’s fee
  • Transferring ownership of the property

This is a crucial question when selling a property in Dubai. You need to know how much your property is worth in the current market. You can either hire a professional valuator or use online tools to get an estimate of your property’s market price. Our article on the current market situation might give you some insight!

The cost of selling a property in Dubai can vary depending on several factors, including the value of the property and the real estate agent’s fee. In general, you can expect to pay the following fees:

  • Real estate agent’s fee: 2-3% of the sale price
  • No objection certificate (NOC): AED 500-5,000
  • DEWA clearance certificate: AED 110
  • Service charge clearance certificate: AED 1,000-5,000
  • Mortgage clearance letter: AED 1,000-1,500 (if applicable)

The time it takes to sell your property in Dubai depends on various factors, such as the location, type of property, and current market conditions. It may take anywhere from a few weeks to several months to find the right buyer. You can speed up the process by working with a professional real estate agent who has a vast network and can find potential buyers in a shorter time.

  • DEWA clearance certificate
  • Sales and purchase agreement
  • Mortgage clearance letter (if applicable)

Before putting your property on the market, it’s a good idea to declutter and make any necessary repairs or upgrades to make it more attractive to potential buyers. Your real estate agent can guide how to prepare your property for sale.

Renovating your property can increase its value and attract potential buyers. However, it is crucial to know which areas to renovate and how much to invest. You can consult a professional real estate agent or interior designer for advice on which areas to focus on and how to make your property more attractive to buyers.

Working with a real estate agent can save you time and money when selling your property in Dubai. A professional agent has the necessary expertise, knowledge of the market, and a vast network of potential buyers. We can help you set the right price, market your property effectively, and negotiate with potential buyers.

Your real estate agent will handle most of the marketing for your property, but it’s always good to spread the word among your personal and professional networks. You can also use social media and online classifieds to reach a wider audience.

Yes, you can sell your property in Dubai even if you still have a mortgage. However, you will need to pay off your mortgage before you can transfer the ownership of the property to the new owner.
