Property purchase process

The process of buying a property in Costa Blanca, Spain typically involves several key steps:

Initial conversation

We begin by identifying your preferences and budget for the property, and will give you advice on property types and locations based on your needs.

Property search and filter

Once we understand your requirements, we will carefully select the properties best suited to you, and a few suggested properties that we think you will like based on our conversation and understanding of your needs. If you are currently local we can meet in our office, and if you are away, we can do this electronically.
We recommend you evaluate each property carefully, considering factors such as location, amenities, condition, and price and relay your thoughts back to us so we can refine our search.

Viewing Properties

Once we have a selection of properties, we will coordinate the viewings to suit your schedule. If you have a car we can meet at a certain location and follow us, or we can pick you up from your hotel or apartment.

If an in-person viewing is not possible, we offer a live virtual property viewing service in which we will schedule a date and time with you for a HQ videocall, to walk you through the entire property, urbanisation & surroundings, spending as much time as needed to clarify any doubts or questions you have, as we would if we were in person.


Once you’ve found a property you’re interested in, we can proceed to reserve the property, or present a formal counteroffer in order to negotiate the price or terms to the seller or their agent. This may involve discussions on price, payment terms, inclusions, and any necessary repairs or renovations.
