A beautiful resale or newly built villa, apartment or penthouse with panoramic view can be found in almost the entire coastal regions of islands of Spain. Buying property often looks very beautiful, especially with a nice sea view and sunny Spanish weather. However buy property, those emotions should be controlled and not influence your decision much buying a property in Spain. We always advise you to first create a good profile for yourself that is important in buying a property in Spain. If you are serious about buying property in Spain? Let us help you a bit with some tips; To buy properties in Spain you need a Spanish bank account, for this and many other steps they ask for a fiscal registration number called a NIE. This number will be used for almost all official documents and especially for buying a property in Spain. Property owners that buy property in Spain must apply for this number. Mostly a Spanish accountant can do this, but in some cases our office can assist as well, if you decide hire a Spanish lawyer he can assist you with the seller’s estate agent land registry and title deed laws and we recommend all property purchases to get advice of a local lawyer before buying a Spanish property from the seller’s estate agent, special if you buy outside urbanizations where land registry need more attention with house sales as in urban regions. Spain has compared with many European countries high transfer tax with house sales. In most regions the property transfer tax as well called title deeds tax differs from 6% till 11%. For the right purchase price, compare the same region with some other property in Spain. You will find that the purchase price can differ a lot even in the same region and same type of property. Check in the region you are interested in the property transfer tax. They call it as well the title deed tax or purchase tax.
Property prices rise on your final price and influence your budget with this property transfer tax. For a Spanish mortgage most Spanish banks issue loans, to non-residents mostly they will finance up to 70% of the valuation cost property prices can differ between asking and the valuation property prices. We can advise you of some mortgage providers, in some cases depending on the bank and your situation 80% is given from the property prices, as to Spanish residents. As a guideline we advise when you open a bank account to ask them as well as your mortgage provider if you purchase property as an estate agent we can assist with this as well. The estate agent fees are in most regions paid by the seller buying property, but it’s recommended to check estate agent fees before buying Spanish property because in some regions they are split between buyer and seller and need to be checked with the seller’s estate agent and your estate agent. Location can make a big difference in price. You can buy a villa with a swimming pool and sea view 20km further away, 100,000 euros more expensive on average. A fantastic high-quality villa with all amenities such as a private pool and many villas or apartments with sea views can differ enormously in price per region and the facilities and views often do not have to differ that much. But if you prefer to look further south in Spain. The region below Malaga North and above Marbella South is often more favorable in price, except close to Marbella and Benahavis with La Zagaleta, where the prices are significantly higher and you find some Spanish property with the highest prices among the Spanish property market. The coast of Spain offers excellent Properties new builds and completely renovated. Older apartments you sometimes come across houses without an elevator if you plan to buy an apartment, please note that this can greatly influence the price, unfortunately the sale of real estate without an elevator will also be less easy later in buildings without an elevator if you want to sell it again. The lack of a lift is also an important factor when you plan renting out a
holiday Properties or villas, but the region and location as well distance to amenities often play an important role as well, a lot to check before you buy property in Spain.
