We must start this article by reinforcing the “average” concept, although it may be obvious, an average tells us that in the time it takes to sell a flat perhaps 5 of them have been sold. It is not an absolute data, but statistical.
Your apartment may end up being sold in a longer or shorter time than the average. How long does it take to sell a flat in Barcelona? A property is a complex product, therefore our response is a great one:
The first thing we must do is divide that average rate by neighborhood. That it will always be more adjusted to our case than a general average rate for a city as large as Barcelona.

This set of averages is going to be an indicative base on which we have to articulate our expectations. There are 3 absolutely definitive factors to be able to sell our apartment in a number of days close to these averages. 1 of these factors allows us a certain margin of action, the other 2 are intrinsic to the nature of the property:
- The intrinsic features of the flat (size, location, orientation)
- The state of conservation of the property
- The demand of the area

Marketing plan for your property
At Si Real Estate we prepare a marketing plan to highlight your home on the market. For this we carry out a study and assess whether to apply Home Staging to the property.
We also have maximum visibility in the main portals. We carry out a professional photographic report and 360º videos. In this way we achieve a very pleasant visit experience (both virtual and real) for the potential buyer.
By promoting all the possibilities of the property, we avoid low offers and we manage to find the ideal buyer.

We prepare the necessary documentation
Energy Efficiency Certificate
Certificate of occupancy
IBI payment receipt
Deposit and deed contract
The earnest money contract is the commitment to sell that the buyer signs for the benefit of the seller. In said contract, the buyer contributes an amount as a deposit to be able to formalize the contract, in addition the conditions of the operation are agreed upon.
Then we proceed with the last step of the transaction. The signing of the contract of sale before a notary. Thus, the process ends and is formalized publicly and legally.
Our sale time
The time of sale is defined as “the time that elapses between the commercialization of the property and the signing of the deposit contract“
We have an average sales time of 37 days
(18 days less than the average rate for Sant Andreu area)
But... Is the sale time of a property that important?
The important thing is not that your property is sold 10 days before or after. The important thing is that your property does not stagnate in the market.
Our average low sales time gives you guarantees that:
- The properties that we commercialize do not stagnate in the market.
- They are not produced against significant offers that could cause the property to lose part of its real value (since there is no time for them to occur)
- We apply an up-to-date, efficient and professional marketing system. (Home Staging, photo reports, premium visibility on all digital real estate portals, high capacity of our professional team)
- We find the best buyer for your property. Since most of the operations that we close are carried out in that period.
