Unlike many of the members of this board, there are people out there that do not live and breathe Spanish property. They don’t know the market and don’t have the time or inclination to do so. A couple of thousand Euros is a valuable investment in such instances.

Why would anybody buy without knowing the market? There is now plenty of time to do the research, without the danger of being priced out on anything…

A couple of thousand Euros is a month of work (unless the money is a gift) so it is not a joke. A couple of thousand Euros might be 0.5% for a 400K property but
it is 3% for a 60K property…
