Learn how to buy property in Spain

In this blog post, I want to take you through the process of buying a house in Spain. Last year, I have purchased a house in Spain myself (Finca Bravo) so I am well aware it can be a daunting process. There are quite a few differences from the process here in the UK and it’s therefore wise to read up and be aware of some of the common pitfalls of buying a property in Spain. I try to cover all the basics below, however make sure to enlist the services of a professional before committing to your dream home.
Logic dictates that before you can buy a property you need to find one that suits your needs…

How to find a property in Spain?

First of all, you’ll need to establish whether you are looking for a sea view apartment, a historic property in a local town or a rural finca set on its own land. Making a list of all your requirements and splitting them out between ‘must have’ and ‘nice to have’ can save you a lot of time and make your search process a lot more efficient. For reference, you can find our list below:
Must haves:
  • rural property
  • at least 1 hectare of land
  • arable land for kitchen garden
  • less than 2 hours away from an airport
  • less than 20 mins away from nearest town
  • access to the property with a ‘normal’ car
  • possibility to use as a B&B 

Buying a property in Spain is very rewarding. There are so many advantages and one of the main ones is the lifestyle.

Apartments with terraces are a particular attractive proposition due to the fantastic weather in rhese regions.
