Firstly, you need to decide what type of house you want – are you looking for a flat with sea views, a historic property in a local town or a rural finca set in its own grounds? Making a list of all your requirements and dividing them into “must haves” and “would be nice to have” can save you a lot of time and make your search process much more efficient. For example, “must have a minimum of 3 bedrooms” and “would be nice to have a balcony”.

Next, you need to find properties that meet your list of requirements. There are several popular online portals you can use, many of which are available in English to make the search process easier.

Should I use an estate agent?

Many of the properties you see on the Internet will be managed by estate agents. Some will speak English (especially in the more touristy areas) and most are used to dealing with foreign buyers. Although estate agents can help you obtain detailed information about the area or town you are looking for, it is advisable to approach them with some caution.

Regulation is relatively low in Spain and there are unscrupulous estate agents. Always remember that the agent is paid by the seller. Ultimately, they are trying to sell a property and will normally only show the positive aspects of a property, not its flaws. Never provide upfront payments and try to steer clear of agents who suggest you cut corners. Some will suggest you make use of their contacts, but we strongly recommend that you seek out your own notary, mortgage provider and lawyer so that you can be fully confident that they are on your side.
