After research and help from the Spain Property Guide, we understood the step-by-step way to buy a property in Spain and knew how to approach our property viewing trip, treating it as a business trip and not a holiday. We saw about ten places, but knew as soon as we saw our dream property that it was the one. We put down a fee to reserve it there and then and got organised ready for buying, finding a local, independent lawyer, opening a bank account in Spain and getting our NIE number before we flew homeBarry Kimber

At Spain Property Guides, we have helped thousands of people like you buy their dream Spanish property over more than a decade. In our experience of the property-buying process, we know that the most important element is having a trusted team behind you.

We know from long-standing relationships that they offer impartial, carefully considered help with buying in Spain – and won’t just push you to a sale.

What to buy in Spain?
Spain really does offer something for everyone – whatever style appeals to you, you will find it here. You can find fincas, farmhouses, beachside apartments, stone village houses or villas set in landscaped gardens in Spain. There’s something to suit every need and budget in the varied Spanish property scenes.
Finding your dream Spanish property
Spain is an extremely varied country, with wonderful beaches, mountains and countryside. Most Brits and other nationalities from the North of Europe head straight to areas close to the beaches. When you move to Spain, you have so many options to choose from.
It is easy to see why many expats choose to make their home in Spain close to the sea and sand. It’s also important to remember that the properties in these locations will usually be more expensive than those found inland. By driving just twenty minutes inland, you’ll find houses and apartments which are much better value and have more space. These could be in a small village or town, or on an urbanisation, built to cater for locals and foreigners alike. It’s important to assess all the options and their pluses and minuses before you make a decision on where to place your roots.
Which is the best region of Spain for you?
Spain has a wonderful choice of locations and property types, so we are confident that you will be able to find the home that’s just right for you – and maybe your family. It’s just a question of writing down what you need, how close you want to be to a town or shops, whether you want to drive or not and how much the overheads will be. To help your decision, our expert Property Resources Team are always on hand to help and you can access a range of the latest and greatest information and news about the regions of Spain.
