If you’re thinking about property in Spain it’s a great idea to look at those reasons NOT to buy – just like you would if you were buying your dream property closer to home. In fact: buying property in Spain through the right company gives even more support and practical help than you’d find at home. We asked Dream Spanish Homes’ Gerry Flynn, who has 15 years of experience in the market after moving from Northern Ireland to set up his Murcia-based company, for his expertise….
1. Red Tape Untangled
Worried about getting lost in a sea of bureaucracy? There’s no need. A specialist agent – like Dream Spanish Homes – will be based in Spain and will have spent years supporting customers like you through the process of buying your perfect home-from-home in the sun. Don’t forget, an agent who has themselves moved to Spain will have, personally, gone through every step and also guided many buyers through their purchase.
You’ll hear more about how the purchase works during your guided tour AND you’ll get to meet the people who’ll be helping you. In the case of Dream Spanish Homes, we’re an established family business – not a call-centre, not a sales team – so the people you meet will be the people who’ll be there through your journey to picking up your keys!
2. Location, Location, Location
If you’re concerned about picking the right property but getting the location wrong, look for an agent who lives, works (and eats, sleeps and breathes!) the area you are interested in. Dream Spanish Homes specialise in the Murcia
area because the company is based in the area and can advise on the communities, the facilities, travel and much more.

we know our way around the areas of Murcia and Alicante. To find out more visit one of our area pages. You will find specific pages for different cities around the Murcia area, golf courses including the award winning Los Colinas course, the La Manga resort and much more.
3. International Trends
Wondering if the area you like could have a drop in popularity? A strong start to 2018, following rises in 2017, means the ever-popular Spain remains attractive to buyers and tourists from across the world. For good reason! The PropertyWire
specialist news service describes the market in Spain as being “at the highest level since the market started recovering”, adding: “Land Registry data published by the National Institute of Statistics show that sales increased by 16% in 2017, the fourth and biggest consecutive year of growth. The figures also show that sales were up 8% in December, the highest monthly growth since December 2008.”
4. Brexit Reassurance
Overseas buyers in Spain are too important to the local economy for the Spanish government not to step in with clear reassurance.
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. The experience of Dream Spanish Homes, based on many years of helping people to find and move to their dream Spanish home, shows that the valued overseas buyer community will continue to be an essential and protected group. Also: Spain has been and remains a popular investment opportunity for non-EU nationals without issue. This would also apply to GB/ NI buyers.
5. What Language Barrier?
In short? What language barrier! With a good agent by your side as you buy, and settle, into your dream home in Spain, you’ll be guided through your purchase. There’ll be a range of languages in your chosen community, with English widely spoken throughout Murcia. How much Spanish you pick up as you go is up to you! One tip is to know ‘Hola’ and ‘Gracias’. Which is Spanish for hello and thank you.
6. Finding Your Feet
Sometimes we wonder about how the smaller practicalities in life will work as much as the bigger things! The best agent for your move will understand this. In the case of Dream Spanish Homes, the company offers – depending on the property – free furniture, aircon…or maybe even a car…to help you on your way.
The Dream Spanish Homes team you’ll have met during your guided tour will be, like you, residents of Spain’s stunning Murcia region and will be there for support. Also, the same team will guide you through things like local tax and will only work with trusted partners – using relationships with the best in the industry built up over 15 years – to make sure the only surprise is the great welcome you’ll receive. Enjoy!

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.”
