Be well prepared and informed when it comes to buying and owning property in Spain. We and our partners provide you with all necessary information to make your life in Spain stress-free. We help you through every step of the way.
First there are some things you need to know about buying property in Spain.
- The real estate market in Southern Spain is an open market, where you will find agencies on every corner, owners, friends etc. all trying to sell properties. Most of them don’t speak foreign languages.
You should try it out, finding property on the internet.. It can be overwhelming and many come to us asking for help in this confusing property jungle.
- Real estate agents in Spain always get their commission from the property sellers side. That means that they work exclusively and only for the seller. Their only interest is to sell that property. So whenever they try to convince you that they work for you, it is not true!
Now you probably ask yourself a very important question.. “Who is going to represent me as a buyer?”
- Holiday rentals in Spain need to be officially registered at the Junta de Andalucía and apply with their rules and regulations regarding letting a property for tourism purposes. If you are looking for a good rental investment of your property, it is very important that these requirements are already taken in consideration while searching for the perfect property
- Never buy property or pay any reservation fee before you have contacted a lawyer or professional to check the property and its documentation!
We try to keep things as simple as possible. Buying a house should be a positive experience!
As Holiday Rentals are our second speciality, we can check if the properties live up to the expectations of the Junta de Andalucía for official holiday letting.
