A Buyer’s True Story
Antonio bought an apartment with a sunny terrace in central Barcelona. He relocated from Italy with his wife and family. When he bought the property, workers were repairing the building’s facade (front). As work progressed they found additional damage requiring more repairs. The question was: Who had to pay for the new repairs? The previous owner or Antonio?
“I’ve gone back to Mark for assistance with other issues since then and he’s always been straight”. Regarding Barcelona: “I’m glad I bought here. It’s a good investment and a nice place to live: the weather, sea, restaurants, street fairs. It’s an exciting place with a lot going on.”
The Purchase Process
1. Initial Phase
We talk to you about your plans, help you locate a property, explain the total cost and advise about a mortgage (if necessary).
2. Visiting the Property
We visit the property with you, assess its pro’s and cons, meet the Seller or their Agent and negotiate a fair price.
3. You Decide to Buy
We analyze the property’s legal documents to confirm the Seller’s identity, find outstanding mortgages, unpaid building repairs and related issues.
4.- Closing the Deal
We negotiate and draft the pre-sales Arras contract, iron out the details, help you transfer funds and prepare for closing before the public notary.

After working in real estate in and near Barcelona for several years, we’ve learned one undeniable truth: non-Spaniards normally pay too much for the property. Why? They did not have enough information before they agreed to a price.
At Spain Advisors we strive to achieve an honest deal by insisting on access to the important property information before you agree on a price. With this information, together we decide if it’s fair.
