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.

So GET INFORMED BY GETTING CONNECTED

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…
