As I keep saying there’s a different breed of buyer out there at the moment – not the sheep of recent years.
If acting for buyer we rarely now enter into private contract and rarely even reservation deposits – rarely do deals these days involve estate agents.
If acting for seller we try to get reservation deposit to stop any last minute shenanigans on the steps of the notary.
But it’s a buyers market and there are Spanish (a few!) who have been put off because of high prices in recent years buying at the moment but they want bargains and they still want to do sizeable cash deals.
and there is no shortage of desperate sellers …..
