How to buy a house in Spain

13 Sep 2021

The dream of many people in life is to be able to buy a house in a favourite place and spend dream moments there. In this respect, one of the most popular and desired destinations among foreigners looking for a new life in a foreign country is Spain. Specifically, we must refer to the well-known Costa del Sol, as well as to the big cities such as Madrid or Barcelona.

Often, a holiday leaves us in love with the place where we have spent a short stay and we cannot stop thinking about what it would be like to have our habitual residence there. Spain is one of these places, as the climate, the quality of life, the culture and the gastronomy make many foreigners choose to spend more than just a holiday in there.

If you are thinking of spending your retirement in a new place, Spain is one of the favourite destinations for this new stage. But what is the first step to take when buying a house in Spain?

First of all, it is important to choose the location, because although Spain is a country rich in culture, it is not the same to live in the big cities as it is to opt for quieter communities with a Mediterranean climate. Andalusia is also a favourite destination; in cities such as Marbella, Malaga, Granada or Seville you can choose to live in a house near the beach, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. On the other hand, and if you are a lover of shores, you can choose the Canary or the Balearic Islands. You can also move inland to the countryside. Residential properties here range from the village houses (Fincas) to country estates to upmarket Fincas.
