Why get a Spanish mortgage?

We’ve pulled together 5 key reasons why a mortgage for Spanish property is an option worth considering:

    • Interest rates are low – The rates to borrow from Spanish banks are low and our recommended financial advisors at Fluent Finance Abroad can offer Spanish Legal Homes clients exclusive rates starting at just 1.9%! Therefore it may be a more cost effective route than investing solely with your own cash.
    • Peace of mind – When obtaining a Spanish mortgage, the banks will do their own due diligence on the property. If they rejected lending against the property, it usually means the property isn’t worth buying or may have hidden legal issues that are unresolved. Having this extra stage of evaluation gives you that extra security during the buying process.
    • Short-term loans are available – Spanish banks do offer short term and longer term loans, so you can find a suitable payment plan. When buying a Spanish property, you do not need to worry about being tied into a long term contract. This is a flexible mortgage whereby you can cancel the mortgage without incurring heavy redemption penalties. An example would be when a client is expecting a lump sum in the near future, such as a pension fund or equity from another property.
    • Paying it off may be easier than you think – If you are thinking about renting your property out, rental yields can help contribute to mortgage payments. If you do plan to rent, you should seriously consider the location and type of property you are purchasing to ensure the demand amongst tourists is high.
    • Get more for your money – If buying a property in Spain is your life’s dream, don’t settle for second best. A Spanish mortgage may help raise funds to purchase a property within the next budget bracket which is in your desired location or closer to the style you want.
