Seller's Guide

Selling your property can, even at the best of times, be a daunting and frustrating experience without the right advice. So before you start your search, use our Sellers' Guide to give you the knowledge and tools to take the first step to selling your property to the right person.

So before you start your search, why not use our Seller's Guide to give you the basic knowledge and tools to take the first step in finding that special place you call home.


Listing Your Property

In order to successfully list your property for sale with us we need a signed Seller Agency Agreement known as Form A, a copy of your passport and the ownership documents as followed:

Under Construction Property:

  • The 1st page of your Property Sales Agreement
  • The payment schedule
  • The receipts for the amounts that you have paid to the Developer
  • The floor plan for the property
  • The keys for the property

Completed Property:

  • The 1st page of your Property Sales Agreement or Title Deed
  • The Completion Certificate for Payments
  • The receipts for the amounts that you have paid to the Developer
  • The keys for the property

Please Note: All completed properties are required to be registered with the Lands Department before a successful transfer can be completed to a new owner. This is at the cost of the Seller.


How To Register Your Property

Please visit the Selling Section
  • Refer to "Sell my property"
  • Register your details as requested
  • Upload the documents required as per the status of your property i.e. Under Construction or Completed.
  • Once we have received your request, we will contact you to discuss our requirements for selling your property.

Or if that sounds a bit to complicated just call one of our residential consultants and they will assist you with listing your property with us.


Appraisal Of Your Property

Once you've signed our Agency Agreement, we will arrange an appointment to conduct an appraisal of your property and to allow us to complete our HIP. We will issue you with a comparable market analysis of similar properties that are correctly listed in your area, and also properties that have recently been sold to give you an indication of the price you can expect.


Marketing Your Property

Smith and Ken have various methods of promoting your property. We understand every property needs exposure, hence our creation of the HIP, which gives buyers all the visuals they need to make a decision. We have our branded For Sale boards, coverage on major internet property portals, and we hold our popular and successful Open Houses in addition to a variety of other creative methods that ensure that your property acquires maximum exposure to achieve the sale you're looking for. We provide extra benefits to those that use Smith & Ken Xclusive which we strongly recommend for those who want to sell their property.


Customer Service Management

Once your property is listed for sale with Smith & Ken, we will send you a Seller Welcome Pack which includes the HIP brochure of your property. All updates and feedback will be provided to you at no additional charge on a weekly basis. Our standard terms are 60 days.


Agreeing To Sell Your Property

Once you've accepted an offer from a prospective buyer, an agreement known as a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) needs to be signed between both you and the buyer. This agreement highlights the terms and conditions agreed, and the buyer shall pay a deposit of up to 10% of the value of the agreed price held by Smith & Ken in trust until the transfer date.


Sales Progression Services

Once the MOU has been signed for the sale of your property, the complex and at times stressful process known in Dubai as a "Transfer" needs to be conducted in order to transfer the property from your name into the new owners name. At Smith & Ken, we understand what's involved, hence the creation of Smith & Ken Sales Progression, the first of its kind to be brought to the UAE, which provides a fully professional and transparent service never seen before. Our Sales Progression team deals with developers, lenders and government bodies every day, and understands all of the necessary requirements, procedures, policies and processes, freeing you from the need to become a property transfer expert. We will deal with everything on your behalf and should you be unable to attend the transfer, we can arrange to complete the transfer on your behalf under a power of attorney.


Any Fees Involved?

Dependent on our agreement, Smith & Ken charges between 2% - 3% for the sale of the property
