Real estate agents in Spain work differently from those in the UK. A real estate agent in Spain will register the properties for sale and agree on a price with the seller. The property then will be advertised (commission included) to potential buyers through our website. Although we represent the interests of both parties, the emphasis certainly lies on the purchasing party.
How we work in Sales
Buying a home requires serious investigations such as legality, inheritance, ownership documents, checking for potential outstanding debts or similar. So, our advice is to not try to do this alone, but to work with an English-speaking real estate agent such as CasaLasDunas, who has your best interests at heart! How do we work? Buying a property in Spain? What? How? When? Where? These are the first questions that arise when beginning the process of a property purchase. Here you are given two possibilities: You can inform yourself via the internet, search for objects and make the selection. Most of the time this works well, however leaves several questions unanswered: With which agency do I work with? Do I only choose one or more agencies? Should it be a Spanish or English agency?
Therefore, we advise the other option: Travelling to Spain in order to visit the area yourself and consulting a trustworthy real estate agent to view some properties. Be careful to not do all of this on your own and let us assist you to avoid unexpected problems. For example, often all homeowners state yes to the question whether all the documents are official and only later will you be unpleasantly surprised at the notary. Are you fluent in Spanish? If not, choose someone who speaks your language, after all you are about to spend a lot of money in a foreign country. But also, questions like will you work with more than one real-estate agent must be thought of. This is time consuming, especially when you must start explaining your wishes and preferences again at every agency, which could lead to you easily losing grip and view the same houses repeatedly. We advise you to select us at CasaLasDunas as an English-speaking real estate agent in an early stage of the process and make the correct agreements along the way.
