When I embarked on my adventure of looking for a second home in Barcelona, while living in my home country of the Netherlands, I... quickly realized that the legal aspects of buying property abroad come with great risks with major financial implications. I learned from my first encounters with the Spanish property market that you absolutely need an experienced, senior advisor on site to avoid all the pitfalls associated with buying property in a country where you don't speak the language and don't have enough local knowledge about how things work.Working with Mark Carr from Spain Advisors to fulfill my dream of owning my own second home in Barcelona has been an amazing journey. The project I chose to invest in was a highly complex, multifaceted and massive renovation project that involved the conversion of a dilapidated 19th century factory building into over 50 industrial urban loft apartments. At the time when I started considering buying one of these apartments, the project was still in its early stages and there were a lot of uncertainties. Despite the setbacks and challenges we encountered along the way, Mark provided excellent support every step of the way, from the initial project assessment and due diligence to negotiating and preparing the purchase agreement, followed by monitoring progress during the construction phase, up to and including the final delivery of the apartment, the signing of the deed and the registration.During the project, Mark always kept a close eye on what was needed in each phase, gave me relevant and pragmatic advice and represented me in person at key moments towards parties such as the project developer, the bank, the notary and the registry office. The assurance that Mark was aware of all the legal issues brought peace of mind and allowed me to fully enjoy the entire construction process and move into the apartment immediately on the day of completion!Based on my experience, I would highly recommend Mark to anyone considering buying a home in Barcelona!read more

What do you say to someone when “thank you” isn’t enough? That is how we feel about the support Mark gave us in the process of... buying our home. We found Mark via a property seminar which he offered for free and were very impressed by his knowledge as well as his professional, friendly approach. We decided to seek out his services and we could not be happier we did. Mark has saved us much stress, time and cost. He knows exactly how the process works so he helped everything flow extremely well from an administrative point of view. From a legal point of view, we felt incredibly comforted having Mark’s experienced eyes to draft and review the contractual elements of the sale. Mark also had excellent contacts and put us in touch with a fantastic architect who was able to check the structure. In every way, Mark was able to lead the process from start to finish, making it incredibly easy for us. It was also invaluable to have someone negotiating for us and representing our interests in front of sellers and selling agents. Even if you are very comfortable dealing in Spanish and used to dealing with Spanish bureaucracy, I think the complexities involved in buying a home are such that the peace of mind to have an experienced real estate and legal professional on your side is worth it’s weight in gold. Thanks Mark for all the help.read more

We absolutely recommend Mark from Spain Advisors if you're considering buying real estate in Spain. Although we've lived in... Barcelona for over 10 years, this was our first experience buying as opposed to renting, and we were looking for someone trustworthy to help us navigate the process of buying a home. Mark was able to negotiate the price, provide contacts for an architect inspection and notary, and take all the paperwork off our plate. It made the process painless and we were able to get into our dream apartment quickly and easily. We wholeheartedly recommend Spain Advisors!read more

Overall, the whole buying process with Marc was simple, well explained and stress free. If there were any problems, Marc was... always at hand to explain and offer effective solutions. I had a particular problem with the bank and Marc took the time to come and speak to the bank manager in person. Looking at the property together we were able to renegotiate the price. This attention to detail and his being constantly available are reasons I would thoroughly encourage you to use him. David Adeane, proud new house owener.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.
