Viewing trips and after sales services
If you are buying a property on the Costa Blanca or Costa Calida then you need to visit the area. Reading reviews is no substitute for a personal look. At Spanish Dream Property, we know that your time is precious, so we promise that it won’t be wasted by visiting places and properties that do not match your criteria.
We recommend an initial visit of 4 or 5 days. This can include a tour to familiarise you with the different areas, towns and villages, which all have their own unique atmospheres. Before you travel, we will establish what are your priorities so properties are pre-selected, but we do remain flexible as sometimes criteria changes. Your personal adviser in Spain will collect you from your accommodation and visit all properties with you. When you have found your Dream Property you can have help with the necessary legal requirements from applying for your NIE number, opening a bank account and or applying for a mortgage. We can recommend independent legal advisors – it is important that you have a legal team that is independent of the estate agent selling the property. Your opinions are constantly sought so we can find the right property for you.
We believe it is important that you have time to reflect on and discuss the properties and areas you visit in private over lunch or dinner. In the past some large, and less scrupulous, companies have used pressure tactics by the domination of your time with their timetable in their own resorts or hotels. We do not believe such practices to be ethical. Buying a property is a big commitment and we believe you need to make your choice in your own time.
We can help find accommodation and arrange airport transfers/car hire. Self-catering accommodation at highly reduced rates is offered (subject to availability) at www.HouseByThePool.com and if you buy a property we arrange for you to view then the cost of staying at the house and airport transfers are refunded on completion of your purchase. This gives you both the privacy and time you need to discuss the properties in your own time and also a ‘try-before-you-buy’ experience of having a home in Spain. We can also supply details on other short-term rentals or local hotels.
After Purchase Service
At all stages, from first enquiry to the handing over of your Dream Property keys we will be here to support you. But it does not stop there. We can also put you in touch with specialists in holiday home insurance, maintenance and keyholding services, rental advertising, mortgage life insurance cover and transferring funds from the UK to Spain at competitive rates. Our Spanish partners are also ‘on hand’ to help with all after-sales services, from setting up your electricity payments to finding a decorator or gardener.
