If you plan to start looking for a property from scratch, please pay close attention to the physical location of the real estate office. Check if the agency is real. Or this is a internet ONLY "real estate agency".
Come to the address given and check whether the real estate office actually exists and whether the employees are present in it. It's advisable to check out popular locations for buying property on the Costa Blanca: such as Torrevieja, Playa Flamenca, La Zenia, Punta Prima, Cabo Roig, the entire coast of Orihuela Costa and other places near Alicanre area. Well known places to buy a property in Spain.
Check that the real estate office has a fixed phone number on the website (the number must start with +34 (area code for Spain). This number is followed by the number 96 - (that is the area code for Alicante).
Check how long the agency has registered business in Spain.
Does the company have the status S.L. which is Sociedad de responsabilidad limitada en España or has status autonomo - Trabajador autonomo en España.
The longer agency exist then better. How long do real estate agents live in Spain on the Costa Blanca? Check how many employees are employed by a real estate agency. Ask in the area how the real estate office works and perform. All this will help you "sow the seeds from the chaff." And above all, it will help you safely invest your money in Spanish property.
What to avoid
Definitely avoid "flying real estate agents" who will offer you a meeting at a local bar, cafe or restaurant. We call them "unidentified flying objects ... UFO...?
Avoid people who don't have a permanent address or an office and people who can be contacted only by mobile phone or e-mail. These types of people can very quickly become "invisible" and quickly disappear with your cash or money transfer. Don't be fooled by talking in a bar or pub about "super deal" or how to avoid or save money on property taxes in Spain. This can end up catastrophic for you.
Sales commission for a real estate agent in Spain it's usually a percentage of the amount of property sold paid by the seller. Your agent should be completely transparent to you and explain clearly to you: who and what receive during the transaction process.
This is what characterizes a good estate agency and proffesional realtors. Among other things by this we stand out from the crowd. As a foreign buyer in Spain you will buy a second home (holiday home or investment capital) or you will be planning to move to Spain and live here.
In both cases you will need much more help and support than you think right now - before buying a property. You will need more support in Spain than if you were buying a property in your own country.
