Your personal support for real estate investment in Spain

On the international real estate purchasing market, there is a huge demand for professional support. The Spanish system operates completely different to what people are used to at home. There is no national overall platform or portal, and real estate could be offered by anyone, at even different prices. Therefore, it is highly recommendable to “use your own specialist”, when you decide to invest in Spain.

We are specialized in that specific item of the purchase process, through our help desk. We accompany the client form scratch until he has finalized the complete purchase. This consists the property search, pre-selection of the visits, negotiations with the seller, preparation of all the documents(multi-lingual) and the assistance at the Deed. It´s an A to Z service package and we guarantee a save and sure operation!

Purchase Assistance in Spain

The Spanish real estate market has left the financial crisis of 2008-2015 behind. Since then, prices have stabilized and in the major cities, like Madrid, Barcelona and Valencia, prices were rising again. The next years were closed with excellent results, with more than 480.000 properties sold in 2018. The Corona crisis had it´s influence during 2020, and 2021 but in 2022 things were looking very promising again. The expectations for 2023 are also favourable!

They are investing in Spanish Real Estate with our assistance

We met Paul on a “Second Home Exhibition” in The Netherlands. He knows the market very well and understands the specific needs of foreigners. We visited the different areas of the city and fell in love with an apartment in the old town. Paul suggested to have another look at nighttime, as he regarded the area as a bit rough. We did so, and found out that this was NOT our area. We continued our search together and we found a loft-type apartment at the beach area (Barceloneta). VDH assisted us during the whole process, including a complete refurbishment project and Paul has become a personal friend. Very efficient, all-round service. Highly recommendable!

We found the services of VDH through the internet. Within hours they sent us a complete report with the “ins & outs” of the local market and a quote of the proposed services. The day afterwards we asked Paul to accompany us with our search for a small palace in the centre of Barcelona, as we had very little time. We found a unique apartment, in downtown BCN, did the negotiations together, and had a fantastic deal! Wow, things go different in Spain.

The company, and specially Paul are highly recommendable and offered their service network. They took care of everything, including signing the purchase Deed with a power of attorney. With such an important decision, it felt very safe to have someone you could trust, especially if you live so far away.

We contacted Paul after the very positive experience of my parents with him, a couple of years earlier, when they bought a villa in Tossa de Mar (Costa Brava). In our case, it was a complicated (legal) process and Paul was always there to support us.

We felt very comfortable having someone with his experience, working on our behalf. Many times, people underestimate the difficulties of buying a home abroad.

It´s not just the language problem, but there are also many cultural differences, between “northern and southern Europe”.
