  • · Budget (rental or buy)
  • House or apartment
  • Size: number of bedrooms, bathrooms, entertainment rooms
  • Furnished or unfurnished

When in Spain it is a good idea to see as many properties as you can in the time you are over there. This way you are more likely to see something you like and will get a feel for the areas and prices.

A checklist of features to keep in mind when looking at properties in Spain:

  • Is the apartment and area surrounding it clean?
  • Near any busy roads?
