Spain Property Guide: Deciding Whether To Buy

Deciding Whether To Buy

There are many reasons for wishing to buy property in and move to Spain. Top of the list are the wonderful climate, the beautiful scenery and the relaxed atmosphere. Remember, of course, that if you have to work then you may not have the time to appreciate these as you might. Living in Spain is not a long-holiday and you will have to work as hard as you do in other countries.

There are around 1.2 million foreign property owners in Spain, which is Europes' favourite country for second homes. The majority of foreigners are concentrated on the Mediterranean coast, and in the Balearic and Canary Islands. One of the reasons for this popularity is the cost of property which - while much higher than it once was - is still low compared to many European countries.

Deciding to move is probably one of the biggest decisions you can make in your life and is difficult due to the numerous financial and personal implications. There will be sacrifices to make and some amount of struggle however the possible rewards are great.

Advantages to moving:

  • Different culture - more relaxed than many with a change of pace
  • Excellent climate
  • The challenge and change from the norm - often leading to personal growth
  • New career challenges in a growing economy
  • Learning a new language and way of life - an excellent plus for children


  • Homesickness
  • Not being able to see family and friends regularly
  • Coping with a different language and customs
