Real Estate Broker/Owner with Punta Cana Lifestyle Real Estate


Simply putting a fancy “FOR SALE” sign will not find you buyers for your property. Agreed that today real estate in Punta Cana remains steady and lots of investors are searching for profitable opportunities, but this also means that you, as a property seller, are bound to face severe competition from other property owners to fetch best deals.

The clients are there, why isn’t yours selling? There are 3 big mistakes that are being, commonly, made by sellers in Punta Cana Real Estate market:

Over Pricing Your Property: Putting a price tag on your property based on personal perception or an unreliable real estate agent, may result in huge disappointment at later stages when the truth is revealed from various well-informed sources to buyers. As a seller, you need to understand that it is extremely important for you to get a professional cost analysis done from a reliable Punta Cana Real Estate Agency. It is the first step that you should be taking in order to get a fair price on your property. The longer the property is in the market, the less of a chance you have of selling a reasonable price.

Inappropriate Home Staging: Property sellers need to give more attention to home staging their property before putting it on sale.  As a property seller it is extremely important that your property is in best shape and looks well maintained. Failing to do so, could cause severe damage to the image of your property in market and turn off potential clients. Remember, most of the buyers who are willing to pay well in this competitive market, are extremely particular about the quality of the property. Also, showcasing a well groomed piece of property will put you in a strong position to bargain on property rates and seal a profitable deal.

Incorrect or No Marketing: People need to understand the power of marketing, especially in a competitive real estate market as is Punta Cana. You may feel that you do not need marketing; marketing is only for the corporate world and TV. But this is not true. No matter how small or big your property is in size and value, marketing it to attract the right kind of attention is important. You may have a property that is perfect in every sense of the word but it could be possible that not enough people know about it or even if everybody seems to know about it still you are not being able to find a suitable buyer willing to pay you the correct price. Right property marketing can make a huge difference to your overall selling experience and actually help you sell property at a better price in a much shorter time.
