Buying guide ...What's involved?

Buying a Property in SpainThe first step is to determine your budget. There is nothing worse than seeing an absolutely beautiful place in Spain and then discovering you cannot afford it. Set yourself a realistic budget. Follow the link for information on Finances and Mortgages.

Once you have an idea of how much you are willing to spend you then need to pick an Agent and it is important to point out at this stage that for the best, impartial advice you should always pick an independent agent. These are the ones who are not focusing on a particular location, builder or development but have a wide range of properties across the whole of your chosen area. Apart from impartial advice you will also get the largest variety of homes to choose from.

You should always choose the agent you feel most comfortable with. Follow the link for more advice on Picking the Right Agent.

The next bit is the really enjoyable part - Choosing your New Home in the Sun.
