      6. Spanish mortgage rates for non residents

        As a non resident, you can take a mortgage for financing your second home or your investment. Of course as your assets won’t be based in Spain, the bank will need waranties and won’t allow a loan to value of more than 70% in general. The Loan to value is the amount of mortgage you can get divided by the value of your property before tax, but this % is only for good inquiry.  Don’t hesitate to ask for a free quote to our mortgage broker, he knows perfectly how it works and which Spanish bank love foreigners.

         

      7. Should I take a mortgage with fixed or variable rates?

        Fixed-rate mortgages and variable-rate mortgages are the two main categories of mortgages you can pick. Of course, there are many other possibilities between the two.

         

        • Why would you take a fixed-rate mortgage? A Fixed rate mortgage has the advantage that whatever the market conditions will do in the future, it will remain the same. To get that advantage, you will on average pay a higher rate than on a variable-rate mortgage, for instance, as of November 2021, mortgages with variable rates were issued at rates of 2.17% while those with fixed rates were issued with 2.74% for an average length of 24 years.
        • Why would you take a mortgage with a variable rate? It could be because it is cheaper and because you don’t see inflation or rates going higher or because you are comfortable financially and can face higher rates. Another reason for variable rates to be cheaper is that for the banks issuing them, it matches their sources of funds (saving’s accounts).

         

        To sum up, if you want safety, take a fixed-rate mortgage. If you see inflation spiking or interest rates going higher (in general due to a strong economy) you could as well go for a fixed-rate mortgages. Of course, the longer your mortgage is the higher your risk will be.
        Don’t hesitate to ask to your Spanish mortgage broker a pricing with both and compare both offers.

         

        April 2022 update: Due to inflation spiking around the world and in Spain (+9.8% as of March 2022) or due to the worldwide economic recovery (expectations), we see that while a year ago mortgages were initiated with variable rates, the trend changed clearly and the majority of mortgages are issued with fixed rates. May be some people see a real risk of inflation spiking, which in turn should increase the variable rates.

        You are about to buy a nice second home in Spain. Do you want to know how to get the best mortgage rates on your Spanish property? Even as a foreigner?
        Check our detailed paper on this subject and follow the link or listen to our 2 minutes video on how to apply for your mortgage up to the end and get all our tips to get the best rates:

        You have to ask yourself this question: What is the ideal customer for a bank? The bank will take a risk, the risk of not being repaid and in this case the bank will need to take legal action to control your property and will sell it afterwards on the market. We saw what happened after the financial crisis of 2008: thousands of properties finished in the hands of the banks as owners couldn’t pay their mortgages.

        The ideal customer for a bank

        • has good professional profile: he is employed and has a stable nice income stream,
        • has a good credit report, he has not too many debts vs his income,
        • can afford to have debts: his debt to income ratio is under 35 %, which means that his monthly net income is 3 times bigger than his monthly debts repayments,
        • the property has a good resale value:
          1. the property price is correct vs the market
          2. there is demand in the market for such a property
        • is coming from an OECD countries, as you know, with anti-laundering laws that came into effect all over Europe, it is very difficult for banks to give a loan to resident of certain countries. Of course, if you are a resident of the European Union, it will be the easiest.

         

        417,500 mortgages issued in Spain over 2021

        2021 was a big year for the Spanish real estate market. A lot of transactions: 674,000, +38% and 25% growth for mortgages issued in 2021 vs 2020. In 2020, 333,721 mortgages were issued. This is a  7.6% decrease vs 2019. You should compare that to the number of properties sold  in 2020 of 487,000, which means, in our opinion, that the market is not over leveraged. Have a quick look at the table for statistics since 2014. Yes we are far from the high leverage situation we had in 2007.
