Is it easy to buy in Spain?

It is really easy to buy a property in Spain but:

  • because you are not on the ground,
  • because you don’t know the market and
  • because you need to check your property in order to avoid any nasty surprise, we advise you not to do it alone.

We are foreigners and Spanish residents who bought properties in Spain and we developed a network of reliable partners in order to assist foreigners in their purchases of a Spanish property.

We wrote our FREE pdf property buyers’ guides written for all the foreign nationalities looking to buy in Spain: get most of our tips there.

 

Don’t forget, if you are buying in Spain as a foreigner, you could have two different motives:

  • Pleasure
  • Investment

or the two combined. Depending on what is (are) your own motivation (s) your criteria will be different.
