Costs of a purchase agent on Curacao
In short: a competitive, fixed rate of NAF 5000, – including 6% O.B. Only with a successful purchase.
Your Purchase Broker at Sun Life Real estate in Curacao has no restrictions on the number of viewings or duration, unlike many other purchase brokers.
An average purchase broker usually uses a percentage of the purchase price as a rate. The result of this method is uncertainty about the total costs of a purchasing agent, which can certainly add up on the housing market on Curacao.
In addition, a compensation based on a percentage of the purchase price has an undesirable effect. As the purchase price increases, the fee to the purchase broker also increases. That doesn’t make sense.
your Sun Life Real Estate purchase broker removes this uncertainty by using one fixed rate.
- Purchase price: NAF 500.000,-
- Average purchase agent costs: NAF 6,050 (1% of the purchase price incl. O.B.)
- Costs Sun Life Real Estate purchase agent: NAF 5000, –
By using a fixed fee, the interests run parallel. Both customer and purchase agent benefit from an efficient process with a positive result. Namely, buying the home for the lowest possible price. Clear and transparent, without unexpected costs afterwards.
Payment takes place upon legal delivery. In other words: once you become the owner of the property on Curacao and receive the keys.
An adjusted rate applies to home purchases above one million euros.

Working method of a purchase agent of Sun Life Real Estate
STEP 1: ORIENTING ON THE RESIDENTIAL MARKET
Finding a house on Curacao is easy. After all, nowadays buyers have access to various useful media, such as woningaanbod.nl and various other international websites, which makes searching for the ideal home much easier. There are no longer any closed markets. After all, a seller requires from his broker that the property to be sold is preferably immediately visible on the internet. If the type of home you want is not listed, a search can be placed. You will then receive a notification as soon as a house that meets your wishes is put up for sale. Do you find something to your liking and would you like to schedule a first viewing? Then request our ‘checklist viewing’ for free.
STEP 2: SECOND VIEWING
For the second viewing you engage us as your buying agent on Curacao. We provide this second introduction to your (possibly) new home, together with you and the broker of the selling party. For this you can use the free purchase advice.
During and after this viewing, we will inform you free of charge and without obligation about our findings with regard to the state of maintenance and any defects. Your Curacao Purchasing Agent also gives a value indication of the home based on reference homes (recent, comparable transactions of comparable homes in the immediate vicinity). If you decide to purchase, we will have the property offered in consultation with you.
STEP 3: PROFESSIONAL NEGOTIATIONS
Your purchasing agent understands the art of negotiation like no other and goes for the lowest possible price and the best conditions. We request all available data from the selling broker (for example, data about ground lease, Owners Association,) and, if necessary, of course in consultation with you, have an architectural investigation carried out. After determining a negotiation strategy together, the negotiation process is started. You will be continuously informed of all developments in the meantime.
As soon as agreement has been reached between buyer and seller, an oral purchase agreement has been concluded. This has no legal force yet, but the terms of any reservations entered will now commence. Think of financing or a construction inspection. These should now also be activated. your Purchase broker on Curacao will arrange this for you.
STEP 4: PURCHASE AGREEMENT
Then it is time to draw up a written purchase agreement. All previously made agreements are (usually) recorded by a notary appointed by the buyer. These are the agreements that were extensively discussed during the negotiations and on the basis of which agreement was reached. Think of the purchase price, dates and any reservations. The purchase agreement is extensively discussed in advance and corrected by us where necessary. After that, you can proceed to signing and, provided it is not a business purchase, the three-day reflection period in (!).
STEP 5: NOTARY CHOICE, VALUATION REPORT AND MORTGAGE ADVICE
As a rule, the buyer determines which civil-law notary is allowed to take care of the delivery of the purchased property. We can advise you on this.
Your purchase broker is involved as an advisor in the purchase of your home on Curacao. For that reason, we are not allowed to provide the valuation for financing. The appraisal must therefore be performed by a third party (independent broker / appraiser). However, we can transfer this to a fellow broker / appraiser at a competitive rate. In most cases, the valuation report is ready within three days.
Financing will be necessary for most buyers. It is advisable to obtain independent mortgage advice from a licensed mortgage adviser. Good advice not only talks about the costs, but also about the importance of the applicable conditions. your Curacao purchase broker provides tailor-made advice without any obligation.
STEP 6: FINAL INSPECTION OF THE PROPERTY
It is very important to subject the property to a final inspection before signing the deed of delivery at the notary. This ensures that the house is in the same condition as at the time of purchase (read: during the viewing, if no further agreements have been made). We make this appointment and check the house together with you.
STEP 7: DELIVERY TO THE NOTARY
After the final inspection, the appointment follows to sign the notarial deed of transfer and possibly the mortgage deed. The deed of delivery is signed by you, the seller and the notary. We are present and check the deed of delivery and the bill of settlement.
STEP 8: CONGRATULATIONS!
You will receive the keys and are the new owner of the house.
