This month’s Spanish mortgage example is based on a property just a short drive from the beach that has its own pool, making it a perfect example of a Spanish home that offers a place to enjoy the sun all year round.

Why should you consider a Spanish mortgage?

If you are looking for extra funding to purchase a property in Spain, then a Spanish mortgage can be a great strategic move that offers a number of benefits, including:

  • Offsetting the low value of the £ sterling, so once the exchange rate improves you can pay off your mortgage with no penalties.
  • Being able to afford and buy your property sooner.
  • Opportunity to increase your budget and purchase a home in Spain that’s bigger and/or better.
  • If you are hoping to let your property, the rental returns can help pay towards the mortgage repayments.
