Guide to buying a property in Spain

PROMEDIA HOMES simplifies the process of buying your new house by providing a guide to buy a property in Spain

A very high percentage of foreigners who choose to reside in Spain, choose the Costa Blanca (Alicante) or the Costa Cálida (Murcia) due to its excellent weather conditions .

In this area, the climate is characterized by its long and hot summers, ideal to spend on the beach or in the pool. The nights are pleasant as they receive the refreshing sea breeze.

During winters, mild and sunny, the rainfall rate is practically zero, so any time is perfect to enjoy nature and outdoor sports.

1st Choice of location:

If you have chosen to buy a property in Spain, the first step is to decide the correct location of your new home based on your interests.

If you have doubts about the location you want to choose, a good solution is to rent a home in that area for a season.

That way you can check if the local infrastructure is healthy and meets your goals, taking into account:

  • Shops, supermarkets, medical centers, pharmacies,…
  • the proximity and easy access to the local airport
  • leisure venues and restaurants out of season
  • transport
  • proximity to your places of interest (beach, golf course, Yacht Club, ...)
  • Existence of residents from your country.
  • If you have small children you need schools, playgrounds, sports areas,…

2nd Type of Property:

Once you have decided on the location of your new home you must choose the type of property you prefer.

In PROMEDIA HOMES we have an extensive portfolio of properties on the Costa Blanca and Costa Cálida.

We offer new construction or resale homes . We have properties:

  • by the sea
  • in front of the beach
  • in residential areas located in the countryside or mountains
  • next to a golf course
  • in urban centers
  • etc.

The houses that are in the construction phase offer you the opportunity to pay them in installments, as the work is carried out, which usually lasts an approximate period of a year and a half.

On the other hand, there is the option to buy your plot and build in it the fully customized home you want.

We have a selection of land in different locations for you to choose your favorite.

We will be happy to advise you throughout the work execution process to help you with municipal permits, works projects carried out by architects, the choice of technical management (riggers) and the builder, etc.

If you choose a house with community development you can enjoy magnificent common services such as swimming pool, garden areas, paddle tennis court, gym, etc.

But, you should keep in mind that the maintenance of these services implies an increase in the share of the community of owners.

Another aspect of great relevance that you should keep in mind when buying a home in Spain is the economic investment that you are going to make.

Although the property will be revalued over time, you can also rent your house for seasons that are not on vacation, thus achieving an increase in benefits.
