How to save money when buying a house in Spain

Sealing the deal and buying a wall coating

If you are sick of the British weather, high prices and unhappy people, then why not consider a move to sunny Spain?

The recession has uncovered some unbelievable bargain properties across the country so we are going to show you how to bag a bargain, and where to find these elusive properties.

We will look at country homes with land for under a hundred grand, and apartments in one of the most exciting and up and coming cities in Spain, Valencia!

Town houses are also a great buy too, plus there are loads of other great value properties to choose from at prices that will astound you!

For those of you who have followed us for the past 10 years we have been online, you may know that not only do we operate in Spain as well as the UK and Ireland, but the owner of this company also has a house out there!

A surefire way of saving money when buying a house in Spain is to network with people, speak to as many agents as possible and drive a hard bargain! When looking for a good estate agent in Spain, make sure you speak to their previous clients who should be only too happy to recommend them.

And just like in the UK, as part of our daily work, we often come into contact with other property professionals such as estate agents, architects and surveyors, so over a cool beer and a tasty tapas (at a cost of only 2 pounds each, by the way!) we decided to team up and offer you, the reader, a chance to learn about some bargain Spanish homes that you simply must come over and see!

Living here is cheap too. A beer will set you back a pound, as will a good quality coffee. A pack of cigs is around 3 quid, petrol is around 2/3 of the UK pump price, a bottle of GOOD wine is around a pound, and your council tax will be perhaps around £200 A YEAR!

Buying a home in Spain

The UK media has, over the past couple of years, painted a very negative image of Spain, but until you are actually here to see for yourself, you soon learn is it is nowhere as bad as it is made out, far from it in fact. It’s a GREAT place to live, or for extended holidays, there is so much to see and do.

There are LOADS of absolute steals here to be had and if you have some cash burning a hole in your pocket, than grabbing a bargain property in Spain could be the wisest investment you have ever made!

There are some amazing bargains to be had such as this country house (above) in the town of Lliria, a lovely little place, steeped in history and only 15 miles from the nearest airport, yours for a steal at only 58,000 Euros!

Yes, that is NOT a mis-print! For a shade under 49,000 pounds (plus local taxes), you get a 3 bed country house, with nearly FOUR ACRES OF LAND.  Just imagine the potential!

You could keep animals, run camping holidays, build a pool or separate holiday chalets such as log cabins etc. What an opportunity!
