Cayman Islands Real Estate Selling Guide

Tips for a smooth sale

  • Before you decide to sell, decide what you are actually selling in terms of fixtures, furniture and fittings.
  • Tell us about any Strata that your home may be part of.
  • Declutter your home; ensure minor repairs are taken care of and that your paintwork is up to scratch (think about neutral tones to appeal to a wider audience).  All this adds value and makes your home more marketable.
  • At Bovell, we can help you determine a realistic selling price, which will be influenced by your expected sale timeframe: a quick sale may need a lower pricing, while those who can wait may get a higher price for their property in the end. 
  • We can search for similar properties in the area to find a comparative sale price.
  • We can take care of viewings, marketing and even hold open houses for your property.
  • Make your home comfortable and inviting – put on the coffee, bake some cookies and have fresh flowers when possible for when buyers arrive for either a showing or open house.
  • To get the most out of viewings, think about your property’s curb appeal – does it look inviting from the outside? Mow the lawn, prune bushes and pick out the weeds in your garden.
  • We will take responsibility for the negotiations of your property with prospective buyers to ensure you get the best price for your home.
  • Let us assist you with the legal side of the transaction by suggesting an attorney. We have great working relationships with several professional firms on island.
  • Once the sale is completed, we can assist with a moving service.
