Surprise Benefits of Buying a Spanish Holiday Home
We love Spain and the Spanish holiday home market so much we moved to Murcia to open a property business! And we love hearing from our customers about the things that make them fall for Spain over and over again.
We asked our friends and clients who’ve bought their own Spanish property for the favourite bonus benefits they have discovered since their move to a dream home in the sun!
1, Love Cruise Holidays?
It’s easy to forget – when you’re relaxing on a tranquil beach without a care in the world – that you’ll be sharing a country with the major Barcelona cruise ship port.
So, not only can you treat yourself to a cruise holiday from time to time without those costing international flights BUT you can be close-by to access the best value trips, including short-notice bookings.
Barcelona offers, of course, the popular ‘Western Med’ route. But, with your holiday home relatively close, you can look out for bargain repositioning cruises, inaugural sailings or even treat yourself to a cabin upgrade.
2, Lasting Popularity
Our clients tell us that the timeless popularity of Spain for overseas visitors – and no wonder – means the reassurance of rental incomes and property values less prone to fluctuation.
You’ll have seen property TV shows offering the advice of ‘location, location, location’. This approach applies more than ever to Spain, where demand for quality property remains strong,.
3, Every Day – Your Way
Again, it is easy to imagine Spain, from an overseas property buyer’s point-of-view, as a land of sunkissed beaches and airy terraces.
BUT property buyers in the country also enjoy being able to explore the likes of Madrid and Barcelona at their leisure.
Major events, holiday seasons and more become much more workable as a tourism option when you’re already a property owned in Spain. Property buyers love knowing they can travel with ease to bustling centres, world-class cities and – of course – high-profile sporting occasions.
Take your pick!
4, A Destination for Family
Spain is both a place to get away from everything, and everyone, yet it is still in each reach for favourite family members and good friends who can make the trip.
Putting time aside to take in stunning Spanish locations with those closest to you could not be more different from squeezing in catch-ups between work and other pressures ‘back home’.
5, Real Time for Each Other
Couples who are newly-arrived buyers of property in Spain often tell us that they have never known such a sense of seemly-endless time to spend with each other; perhaps in a lifetime!
The enjoyment of waking in your own property with no pressing schedule and the cost, town or area of your choice at your feet truly gives a sense of time standing still.
6, A Real Home-From-Home
Instead of living out of a suitcase, you can fill your dream Spanish property with luxuries from home.
Favourite TV, books, food and décor items? They can easy find a place in your own Spanish property, making it a place to truly savour in your own time, surrounded by your favourite people and things.
Thinking of Buying? The Cost of Waiting
Too often we see customers waiting ‘just another year’ to buy – which is, of course, their choice and one we respect hugely – in the hope that a purchase price may fall by an amount equivalent to the price of a few drinks a month when the mortgage quote is created.
In the meantime? Thousands of pounds spend on holidays could have been saved if the property was already in place, perhaps even covered completely by rental income.
And some great news: Buyers from GB and Northern Ireland – a vital part of the economy in Spain – have been told their lives will not be disrupted post-Brexit by no less than Spanish Foreign Minister Alfonso Dastis.
We’ll Give You More!
Thanks to the strong local property market and our local negotiating power, we pride ourselves on being able to provide FREE extras like aircon, furniture…or even a car!

Here’s what our customers say:
“They were so informative in every way throughout the process from viewing properties, offers, agreeing a property and then assisting on post sales inquiries. This meant so much to us as it takes the pressure off you and is so reassuring especially purchasing a property overseas. We will be recommending DSH to our friends and family.”
Collette and Dave
“We met with Gerry and having given him our brief within a couple of hours we were standing in local properties, one of which is now our new Spanish home! We are delighted. There was no pressure and we were actually encouraged to think about it for a couple of days (which we did) and then went back and took the plunge.
“If you are looking to buy in this area talk to these guys.”
