Buying Property in Spain? Act Now!

Buying Property in Spain? Act Now! 4

If you’re lucky enough to be thinking about property in Spain, you’ll – no doubt – have wondered how to time your purchase to get the best from Brexit.

Well, we’ve got some good news.

We’ve been advising clients on some STRONG reasons to profit from investing now, thanks to a range of great benefits there to be enjoyed by those who act in time.

Read on and we’ll explain our expert view…

 

Prices On The Up

Increasing prices in Spain mean a host of advantages to buying soon.

A strong start to 2018, following rises in 2017, means a great time to act with the price rise in place long enough to look like a trend but recent enough to keep prices affordable. For now.

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.”

 

Brexit? Your 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 any less than Spanish Foreign Minister Alfonso Dastis.

Our experience, 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.

 

More Choice Than Ever

The buoyant property market in Spain means a confident construction sector building a superb range of high-quality, stylish homes.

Developers are willing to not just invest in the standard of property available but make sure the design features and finish of their homes are first class.

Put simply: it’s a great time to browse the best of the local market and see just how far a wide range of budgets can stretch.

 

Profit from Change

We will, of course, still see some hesitancy from a small number of buyers who – perhaps – aren’t receiving the quality of advice our clients enjoy.

This tends to make an increase in rental demand and prices happen. So, while you’ve have bought your new home at the still-low current prices, if you decide to rent the property out you’ll enjoy the likelihood of rising rental values. Set against your initial outlay, while the ‘wait and see’ minority will be paying more for purchasing and rental costs your Return on Investment is likely to be larger.

 

Exchange Rate Timing

The one thing we know about the Sterling v Euro exchange rate for certain? It doesn’t sit still for anyone!

Peaks and troughs in recent years have led – however – to relative stability in recent times. Meaning there’s an advantage to buying while this remains. Could move closer to Brexit cause a change? Certainly.

Timing-wise, stability now will always beat uncertainty later.

 

The Right Time for You

Is it the right time to move for you, your family and your finances? This overriding factor is a huge consideration and, barring any hugely pressing outside factors, is the one we advise our trusting clients to act on first and foremost.

When you’ve waited for a move for many years, the right time is clear. Holding back, at the risk of things like your own circumstances or exchange rate changing, could be a step to the dream purchase being prevented from ever happening.

 

Spain is Spain!

Spain is the destination of choice for investors, families, retirees and more thanks to the area just making sense for their dream purchase: an incredible climate, a warm welcome, a great English-speaking professional and social community, superb food and much more.

We’re a family business who fell for Spain (particularly Murcia) because of everything it offers. We love making that happen for clients old and new.

It also remains VERY much unchanged and, right now, the only thing changing is the price and market in Spain: with both of them only going one direction of late!

 

The Cost of Waiting

To 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.

And 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.

 

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!

Depending on the value of the property you buy, we’ll make your first visits to your dream home even more special with a bonus luxury with our thanks.

With 15 years of experience and perfectly placed to source properties in the stunning areas of Los Alcázares, Mar Menor, Costa Cálida and Alicante.

Whether you’re looking for a beautiful family holiday home, a high return investment property, or a golf resort villa to retire to, we can find the perfect property to fit your needs and budget!

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.”

Surprise Benefits of Buying a Spanish Home

Surprise Benefits of Buying a Spanish Home 5

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 easily 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.

Enjoy!

 

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 any 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!

Depending on the value of the property you buy, we’ll make your first visits to your dream home even more special with a bonus luxury with our thanks.

Reasons NOT to Buy Property in Spain…Including Brexit! – Our Expert Guide

Reasons NOT to Buy Property in Spain...Including Brexit! – Our Expert Guide 6
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

Dream Spanish Homes Logo

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.
Recommended areas for your dream home? Find out more…
As a company operating out of Los Alcazares 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 

Spanish Flag

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!

PS – We’ll give you more! 

Don’t forget: 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.
Depending on the value of the property you buy, we’ll make your first visits to your dream home even more special with a bonus luxury with our thanks.
With 15 years of experience and perfectly placed to source properties in the stunning areas of Los Alcázares, Mar Menor, Costa Cálida and Alicante.
Whether you’re looking for a beautiful family holiday home, a high return investment property, or a golf resort villa to retire to, we can find the perfect property to fit your needs and budget!

Buying a home in Spain: A small Guide

Buying a home in Spain: A small Guide 7

Buying a home in Spain is a very confusing and daunting task, even if you have experience in the field. Buying home abroad in a separate country is 10x more confusing and daunting, that is why us at Dream Spanish Homes will help you every step of the way. Some of the main difficulties when buying a home abroad are laws and language barriers. These reasons plus many more can make buying abroad very scary.

Hopefully, this guide will help you out and reassure you about any difficulties you may face. Information regarding Visa’s, mortgages and general moving will be in this article.

Spain is one of the most popular destinations in the world for many Europeans, North and South Americans and has become increasingly popular with people from Asia. It is also increasingly popular with people from all walks of life and from around the world looking to move abroad and to a warm country.

 

A Starting point

Everyone here at Dream Spanish Homes believes before moving abroad, that you should be fully committed to moving. Many people move abroad and then realise it is not for them and move back home, we do not want you to be one of them. With the developments in the internet and technology, you can always feel at home from almost anywhere in the world. We also suggest inviting friends and family over to your home as well as visiting them back home.

You should also have a small plan or overview of what you will/could do during your time in Spain. We suggest this as many people may move abroad and don’t have a small plan of why they wanted to move and get bored with their surroundings quickly.

 

Legal Problems

When moving to Spain, there is, of course, the legal stuff. No matter what, there sadly must be legal stuff. With all the legalities, us at Dream Spanish Homes will help you, but we do suggest that you do get a lawyer. Ideally, one who specializes in property and Spanish Property.

Visa’s and Residency

In the near future, we can expect visas to get that little bit more awkward due to Britain’s upcoming exit from the EU. For the meantime though, all EU nationals including British can travel freely into Spain. Other people who are from countries who are apart of the Schengen countries can also travel freely into Spain.

When Britain finally leaves the EU through Brexit, UK nationals will more than likely need to apply to get into Europe through a program called ETIAS. This project is being set up by the EU, which allows people from countries around the world to travel into Europe if they make the EU aware. If you are travelling from other countries to Spain, you will need a Visa.

Property Deposits

When an agreement between a homeowner and a potential buyer is met, a contract is drawn up for both parties to sign. This contract will involve deposits. So, what is a deposit?

A deposit guarantee’s property is yours. The usual amount for a deposit is either 10 or 20 per cent of the final price of the property. A deposit is used to assure the homeowner of the sale, as a sale has been agreed, so they do not offer the property as to let any more. This is also to stop other offers and bids being received by the homeowner as they have agreed upon a sale.

Mortgages

Mortgages are the fun part of buying a house in Spain. They are what we use to help us purchase a new home for ourselves if we do not have all the money for a property. A mortgage can either make or break your move to Spain as without one you may not be able to move.

There are different types of mortgages, so there is always the right one for you. But how do they work? A mortgage works by borrowing a large sum of money from either a lender or a bank and you will pay it back over several years with added interest on top of that. Until the whole mortgage is paid back, you are not the sole owner of that property as your lender also owns it.

Over the years you will start to pay more and more of the interest and the loan off, eventually paying it off after say 15, 20 years and the property is fully yours. In order to receive a mortgage, you need to have a good credit rating.

Taxes

In Spain, there are a lot of added costs and taxes to take into consideration when buying a home. Probably very similar to when buying a home in your home country. This is on top of the price of your property.

The biggest tax when purchasing a home in Spain is the ITP tax, otherwise known as the transfer tax on resale properties. This tax is up to 8 percent of the resale value of the property. You also need to be aware of the IVA tax which is like the ITP, only on new build properties. This tax is 10 percent and goes to the National Government instead of the Regional Government.

You should also note that there is a mortgage tax and a land registry tax. All of which can increase your costs for a new home substantially.

 

Who can help?

It is good to note that us here at Dream Spanish Homes (DSH) can help. We can give you great advice on different situations as we have a lot of experience in dealing with clients.

We also advise you that lawyers are a great help and can assist you that little bit more than us through the whole purchasing process. (As we are not lawyers ourselves). They will not only keep you on the right side of the law, but they will advise you throughout the whole of the purchasing process.
