The art of selling property has always been more accessible than buying it. It can be confirmed as potential clients tend to visit or contact the seller rather than sellers visiting the clients and finding interested prospects. Another advantage property sellers have is that they do not have to pay taxes of different kinds. There are perks, but this doesn’t make entrepreneurship quite simple.
Here we’ll discuss real estate in Karachi.
Selling & Transfer Procedure Of Property:
The property selling process in Karachi is somewhat similar to those set by individual developers in housing societies. The question that intrigues most individuals is how one transfers property ownership in Karachi.
The transfer process proceeds in the office of Karachi’s land development authority. If the project is from a private sector and registered developers, the transfer of the property takes place in their respective office place.
What to Keep In Mind When Selling Property:
To start a business in Karachi regarding land sales, one should know a few things to keep in mind. Research beforehand should be done regarding the land and its sales. One should find an agent, set the agent’s commission, and keep in mind the token money, initial deposit, no-demand certificate, taxes, and transfer letter.
Research & Agent Hunt:
One shouldn’t depend entirely on the agent they hire but explore the market rate that the property stands. When one knows the worth of their property, they can put it up on sale at the best suitable price. This process benefits both sellers and buyers; when sellers make their minds up about selling their property, they are to check resources to maintain market rates. This process is quite time-consuming but pays off fruitfully.
The next is to find an agent once you’re aware of the market value of the property. One would question why an agent is to be hired, and the answer to that is to scavenger a profitable deal in a saturated market. The agent will be a helping hand in taking care of the processes.
Commission Of The Agent:
The agents get one percent of the profits as they work on a commission basis. Rarely does an agent adjusts commissions by the deal. The best way to overcome the latter problem and complications regarding this is to finalize the commission beforehand.
Once the seller finds the potential buyer, token money is to be paid by the buyer. Token money shows the intention of purchase of the buyer. In other words, token money reserves the property for the payer. The buyer can ask for a photocopy of the original documents of the property once the token money is paid for verification.
Deposit at Initial:
The buyer pays an amount of money marked as the initial deposit, 25% of the total price. The stamper paper is signed at this stage with terms and conditions.
The No-demand Certificate:
One needs to apply for the no-demand certificate near the date of final payment. The transfer of the property isn’t possible without this certificate. This certificate states that no dues are owed and includes taxes, transfer fees, and stamp duty applicable to buyer and seller. The buyer is to be provided with a copy of the NDC.
The tax payment is to be submitted to the house society or development authority office. The buyer must pay the transfer fee, stamp duty, CVT, and TMA Tax for the property.
Both the buyer and seller are to be present at the time of the documentation of the transfer letter. Once the property is transferred to the buyer, the property no longer belongs to the seller. The payment is transferred into the seller’s account within a few days. The seller is to keep a check on their account when the payment is pending.
Constant vigilance is required and vital when dealing with real estate. One is to be aware of the scams that are present in the market to stay safe.
