Is a Spanish mortgage right for you?

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

  • Pay off your mortgage with no penalties – As soon as exchange rates improve, you’ll be able to pay off your mortgage with no penalties, due to the offsetting of the current low value of the £ sterling.
  • Increased budget – a Spanish mortgage can help you increase your overall budget, which in turn could allow you to buy property in a different area of Spain, or somewhere slightly bigger.
  • Speed up the process – Due to the extra funding gained from a Spanish mortgage, you might be able to decrease the time it takes to purchase your property.
  • Rent to repay – By renting your property when you don’t need it, you could benefit from repaying your Spanish mortgage with the returns made.
