Buyer´s Guide

WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW?

Traps to avoid.
After you have bought a property in Spain, you may wish you had a second chance to go about it in a different way. Let the VillaLingo team help you do it right the first time!

Real Estate Jugle.
Avoid registering with too many estate agents. This can affect your search negatively and can create a lot of unnecessary headache. Take three agents and a lead agent on board, this is a good decision.

Which house had...?
You will and must visit numerous properties. Important is to be well organised and to keep track of your impressions. You chose the method, audio, visual, notes, we assist you. Inquire about our services.

Surveyor.
No reason why you shouldn´t ask for a survey befor you commit yourself. Ask VillaLingo for possibilities, pros and cons.

Negotiating a price.
