For example, the large township in Setia Alam that integrated with nature’s beauty and architecture. 

#5: Appoint a lawyer
If you have your appointed lawyer to be your legal advisor, that’s good. But, if you do not have, best to get your agent to introduce a legal advisor. During the process of selling property, the lawyer is there to help you with your legal documents and speed up the documentations process including transferring ownership and property handover. You wouldn’t want to waste time and money going back and forth for the tiniest mistakes in the documentation.

#6: Viewing after viewings
During this process, your agent will start arranging appointments for your potential buyer to meet and negotiate your property. Usually, viewings are mostly done in the evening or weekends so expect some calls from your agent during this suggested timing. 

#7: Accepting offer
After viewing, if the buyer is very interested and keen with your property, they will begin to make an offer to buy it. During this process, both agent and potential buyer will start negotiating the prices. If the offer is made to you privately, you’ll still have to get the document signed with your estate agent. As you have already engaged your agent during the beginning of the selling process, you will still have to pay for the professional fees.

Before the negotiation starts, it’s better to have set the par of your selling price because at this stage, most of the time potential buyer will not agree with the initial price offered. Hence, you will be expecting to negotiate with a limit of how low can you go. Fret not, if the property is in demand, it may fetch as far as beyond the original asking price similarly like the in demand property, Setia Alam. Once both parties agreed on the price, be sure to quickly sign on the offer letter!

#8: Signing Sale & Purchase Agreement (SPA)
This is where your legal advisor get involved to assist you with all the documentations. Once the buyer executes the SPA, buyer will have to pay the balance of the first 10% of the property’s purchase price. The endorsed documents will be send over for execution and stamped which you will have to pay stamp duty according to the table fixed here. This will have to be done within 14 days of the date of the signing of the “Letter of Offer to Purchase”. Within three months from the SPA becomes unconditional, the remaining 90% will be payable to you.

Finally: Your property is sold!
After all the payments been done and the documents have been executed, the property will be successfully transferred to the new owner. Be aware that you will need to pay for Real Property Gain Tax (RPGT) if the transaction made is lesser than X years. Your profit from your disposal of residential and commercial properties are taxed based on the holding period of your properties.
