We’ve had our house on the Costa Blanca for just over three years now and we get asked quite a lot about how we went about buying our house here in Spain and any pointers too.
I am in no means an expert, but I thought I’d share with you our advice and chat about things we’d maybe do differently if we were to buy again and ideas we’ve picked up along the way.
First of all there are hundreds of properties for sale in Spain. Apartments, town houses, villas, country fincas, re-sale and new builds. Whatever style of property you are after I’m sure there will be quite a few of them up for sale.
So there is no need to rush the sale.
That is probably my no.1 bit of advice, don’t rush.
Most properties are up for sale for a long time, so the likelihood of your ‘dream’ house being snapped up when you go away to think, is pretty slim. Which is another thing to look at is, if you want to sell in the future. You have to be prepared that it could be up on the market for a long time. So make sure the property you buy is 100% suitable for your needs.
