This website offers you the latest Spanish property market news and analysis, plus a section of guides explaining the procedures and costs for buying and selling real estate in Spain.
There is a Q&A section on the subject of Spanish property, where many questions are answered. If you have a question for Spanish Property Insight, please ask it in this section.
Buying a property in Spain can be an enriching affair, both financially and in terms of enhancing your happiness and quality of life, but only if you go in with eyes wide open, aware of the risks and costs, and get the purchase right.
Getting the purchase right means buying the right property for the right reasons, in the right way, and at the right time (for you at least). It means approaching your purchase in a structured and organised fashion whilst understanding the purchase process in Spain. It means understanding the risks involved in making one of the biggest investments of your life in a foreign country whilst dealing with people who don’t necessarily have your best interests at heart. Most of all, it means being well informed, as information is power, and the more you know, the harder it will be for others to take advantage of you. So this website is designed to arm you with information to help you take informed decisions and buy safely in Spain (or decide against buying as the case may be).
It follows that the purpose of this website is not to ‘sell the dream’ but to point out the risks and realities of pursuing the dream. This inevitably means focusing on the problems, risks, costs, and other negative issues that may make you wonder whether buying a property in Spain is such a good idea after all. That is certainly a question you should ask yourself, as for some people the answer will be ‘no’ and it is better to find this out before proceeding to buy. But for the rest, learn from these pages, but don’t let them dampen your enthusiasm if your dreams are realistic.
If you buy badly in Spain you run the risk of losing a substantial amount of money, either through capital loss or avoidable costs, and you could end up with a property in Spain that is nothing but a burden to you. So if you only visit this website once never to return at the very least bear in mind the following points:
