I only have a vested interest in exposing the truth to help others avoid the disasters and rottenness of Spanish property markets which I know intimately well.
Not to be provocative, but do you know the percent of all properties sold in Spain that are ‘disasters’? It is a well-established aspect of human behavior that people who do not have any problems rarely say so. But those who do have problems will look for many outlets to complain.
I’m guessing that the percentage of disasters varies from region to region. I’m also certain that some disasters are due to people not doing their homework.
When purchasing a place that is for most a big investment, regardless of the location, I would assume that everyone is a crook as a starting point.
That said, it is appalling just how corrupt the Spanish real estate industry is.
