When you buy or sell property in Spain the sums of money are large, perhaps one of the biggest financial decisions of your life. The high transaction costs you will face like taxes and commissions only make the decision more important to get right. And when you own property in Spain you face a host of extra challenges to manage, and costs to control. Unfortunately, the Spanish property market is opaque and full of pitfalls, and notoriously unprofessional. Buying and selling property in Spain is not a decision to be taken lightly, and you may find it much easier to buy than sell if you don’t take care. In this market it is crucial to do your own research, and don’t rely exclusively on people who are trying to sell you something – let’s just say they might not have your best interests at heart. Spanish Property Insight is the only independent source of information and analysis of the Spanish property market. Don’t even think about buying or selling property in Spain without subscribing to Spanish Property Insight.
An easy way to keep an eye on the hottest properties for sale in Spain. Great opportunities selected by local experts, all advertised in one place.
Many of my readers are looking to buy property in Spain, so I’ve always wondered how to go about advertising property for sale in a relevant way that focuses on quality, rather than quantity.
With that in mind I recently set up a property corner, and invited some estate agents in my network to list up to 100 of their best properties for sale, hoping my readers would benefit from a selection that helps them focus on quality homes from good agents.
But I soon realised that 100 properties was too much. It doesn’t force agents to focus on the best they have, and makes the property corner look like a portal with out much choice. So I’ve dramatically reduced the number of properties agents can advertise here to make them focus on just the hottest properties they have for sale.
Local agents are well placed to judge which properties are hot and which are not. They get to see all the properties on the market, and know which ones are most likely to sell taking into account price, location, and features. Is a section that focuses just on these properties helpful? I’m still trying it out with a few agents to see how it works. You can view the hot Spanish property for sale selection here. Feedback welcome.
