Now I have your attention let me say that you do not need to make any quick decisions when buying a bank repossessed property in Spain!

There is a very well publicised Spanish property crisis evolving and although the market has corrected itself with many property price reductions the amount of property available for you to choose from is huge

Whether you are buying in Spain, in the UK or on the Moon – Don’t Hurry!

We all get the buzz and our hearts rule our heads when we look a property on a sunny day and we are relaxed and the dream of owning our very own piece of Spanish property heaven fills us with an urgency to buy now… This is a very human condition and we need to balance this with a rather boring common sense approach.

So what do we advise when looking for an apartment in Spain or Spanish Villa?

Follow these simple steps and you should make a better Repossessed Spanish Property buying decision:


  • Never Forget the Fundamentals of Spanish property buying and number 1 is Location! A good location with access to international airports is high on any overseas buyers list when buying in Spain.
  • Amenities, as much as we fantasize about rural retreats etc it is important to think ahead and into the many long years of enjoyment from your property in Spain. I am a relatively lively 46 year old but in 20 years I might need a few less steps or a cafe nearby to have a stroll and a coffee, so a property that allows me to change and will accommodate my changing needs is a sensible thought to consider
  • Aspect – sounds obvious but buying in area that is already developed solves any worry about what might be built. That said there are ever stricter building and planning laws, who says we don’t learn by our mistakes
  • Do Not Rush a decision– that is not to say that you need to take forever either , just that you don’t need to hurry and make up your mind – it is possible to see “the one” on your first visit but it is more likely that you will build a picture of what your money will buy and where you want to be
  • Lawyer – we have said  this before but feel it is really important and so we are saying it again, get a good lawyer who is independent the Foreign and Commonwealth Office have good advice and here is a link for you
  • A Good Agent is worth their weight in gold – if you are thinking about buying a bank repossessed Spanish property you could listen to one of our recent buyers and hear what they have to say

I would be delighted to hear from you and I feel you won’t find an agent better placed to help you in your search for bank Repossessed property in Spain, so feel free to email me on or call me on +44 (0)7970 263 288

I look forward to hearing from you!!

Good Hunting for your Property in Spain

Author : Robert Evans

In an earlier blog we advised you to read the Foreign and Commonwealth Offices website regarding buying property in Spain.

This post we want you to benefit from the experiences both good and bad of those who have direct experience of living and buying in Spain.

Consistently the Number 1 location for Brits buying abroad Spain does have it all, Mountains, Sea , Sun , History, Culture, Food , Wine, Friendly Locals , Rule of Law, Great Healthcare the list is endless and we want you to find all this out for yourselves!

So much information is available to you about Spain it can be confusing and we suggest you try to be selective. Remember that even the most well crafted article or comment on Living in Spain and the Spanish Property market is only one person’s opinion

Frankly these opinions can range for the absurd and tragic to the sublime and everything in between! There are your obvious nuts spouting forth and sometimes it is amusing to see the human condition in all its glory but this content is rarely helpful.

Polar opposite stances are best ignored and normally the truth is to be found somewhere in the middle.


We are all driven by our emotions. Sometimes this is good and sometimes it clouds our judgement never more so when considering moving to Spain and deciding on your new Spanish apartment or Spanish villa. My advice is when looking to buy a property in Spain is try and take the emotion out of the equation.

Start by isolating the facts relevant to your new property in Spain, price, number of bedrooms and of course location. You are in the driving seat with the “Buyer Power” (more on that in a future blog)

One way to decide on location is to engage with the large number of Forums and Blogs that exist and read what people like you and me have to say about the various regions

Here are various links to forums etc

(I Hope these provide some help and would love to hear about your favourite blog or forum on Spain as there are so many to choose from.)

In the Blogs and Forums many motivated writers will have their pet subject and will be expressing opinions that are forged from some good and some bitter experiences, what is important is to filter through the extremes and take what you need to know about buying a property in Spain.

You need to be aware and see potential pitfalls, forewarned is forearmed. So GET CONNECTED and let me know what you find out and share it with us.

Now I suggest you add back the emotional drivers that make you want to take the plunge and buy a property in Spain after all that’s how we live our lives and a life in Spain is about passion, and most importantly Enjoy the Journey…
