Welcome to Barcelona!

I’m Mark Carr, the owner of Spain advisors. I’m an attorney from the USA and have been living in Barcelona for 22 years. Barcelona is a great investment and 2023 is a great time to buy. From a small flat in the Gothic Quarter, a modern apartment in the city or country home in Catalonia, we can help you get it. If you’re a Non-Spaniard looking to buy property in Barcelona, you’re at the right website.  

Spanish banks love lending to foreigners. We can make the introduction so you can open an account, get mortgage information and hopefully pre-approval. We also work with a Spanish tax attorney, an interior designer and an architect giving you all the contacts you’ll need to move forward. Let's go!

"Buying property in a different country is not easy. Mark Carr was able to negotiate a better price for our apartment. I simply couldn't have done it without him and I would definitely recommend Spain Advisors to anyone new to Spain."

Very different experience from buying in the UK to buying here in Barcelona. We could not have completed without Mark. Super... helpful, on top of everything and made sure we had everything we would need and some. Got started right away which was nice (within a week). Can't recommend this service enough to anyone looking to buy here who is not Spanish.read more

We recently bought property in Sitges with the assistance of Spain Advisors. Mark Carr was great at supporting the buying proces... for us consistantly and proactively provideded guidance for us through every part of the journey. The partnership we had with Mark and Spain Advisors was crucial for the deal to come through. For example we were supported in terms of making an offer, negotiating the conditions of the purchase, translating and interpreting contracts, as well as the payment process.With Spain Advisors we encountered a very smooth process, and we would strongly recommend anyone buying property in the Barcelona area to team up with Spain Advisors. We felt that we were in very safe hands all the way.read more
Common Questions
Is 2021 a good time to buy a property in Barcelona?

Yes, international demand is currently suppressed. A lot of overseas buyers can’t travel to Barcelona now, and the local market is currently weak. Thus, owners are forced to negotiate down the price. Once COVID is over, costs will probably go up...fast.

Can you help me get a mortgage?

Yes. we can take you to a large bank in Barcelona to ask questions and get their terms. Or I can organize a Zoom call. Interest rates are at an all-time low, and banks lend up to 80% of the purchase price. These rates won't last long.

How do I know if the price I see online is fair?

By visiting properties and comparing prices. There’s no other way; you have to see the properties one at a time. There's no market price in Barcelona as each property is unique. So sellers pick a price and hope for the best.

Do I really need someone to help me find and buy property in Spain?

Your call. The vast majority of the Google Reviews say 'yes' as it saves you time, stress, and sometimes money. Several issues from title to taxes will probably come up. See Buyer's Agent article.
