Spanish Estate Agents and Inspection Visits

The only way to buy a home in Spain is during an inspection visit. If you are serious about buying a property, and are in a position to purchase, this is the most effective way to ensure your find the ideal home, in the ideal area at the right price for you.

If you are unsure as to whether an inspection visit is appropriate for you at this time, the following questions and answers may help you decide.

1 What is an inspection visit?

An inspection visit is a 3-4 day trip designed for those who have made the decision to purchase a property, and are in a position to buy should the right property be available. During your visit with Francis Estates you will not only be shown a wide selection of locations and properties within your budget, but also the range of facilities that each of these locations has to offer. This will include the beaches, golf clubs, shops, supermarkets, restaurants and anything else that is important to you personally.

2 Will we have enough time?

Absolutely, in all honesty it is very similar to when you are purchasing a property at home, if you see something you like - you buy it! The only difference is that we do the searching and pre-selection for you. You will be shown a wide variety of properties and locations based on your own personal requirements - a bit like a shortlist.

3 What if we do see the right property for us?

Then we will be there for you to help arrange the entire process. We will introduce you to solicitors, mortgage advisors if required, open up a bank account with you, help with the best routes for converting your currency into Euros - quite simply we offer the full service to help you make the process as stress free as possible.

4 Can we come on an inspection visit with you if we are not in a position to buy yet?

Unfortunately we cannot offer personalised inspection visits to you if you are not in a position to buy. Bear in mind that there is nothing more frustrating for you when you see the ideal property and are unable to proceed any further! If you did want to explore the area however, we would be more than happy to advise you on areas to visit at your own leisure, and help arrange accommodation during your stay.

5 I am ready to book an inspection visit - what do I have to do next?

Just let us know and we will get in touch with you to arrange the visit.
