There are Many Excellent Reasons for Buying a Home in Spain

By: Scott James

If you want guaranteed sunshine , beaches beyond compare, some of the best food in the world, a wide choice of entertainment, and a terrific selection of homes at unbeatable prices, then you will find Spain almost too good to turn down. Although the vast majority of holiday makers (and residents) come to Spain to laze about on the beach, there's much more to the country than the Costas and its islands .

Spain offers amazing variety that covers most options for everyone, including magnificent beaches for sun worshippers and unbelievable scenery with tremendous views and wonderful mountain walks. For those who wish a more urban based life there are some of the most sophisticated cities to be found anywhere. For food lovers, you will find some of the best food to be found anywhere and wine to match.

To buy a home in Spain is not just to buy a dwelling but your chance to buy a lifestyle, and as a place for your holiday, second or retirement home, Spain is unrivalled, particularly if you're seeking year-round sunshine.

Why would you want to purchase a home in Spain?

There are many excellent reasons for buying a home in Spain , although it's important not to be under any illusions about what you can expect from a home there . Get the basics right from the outset on what your expectations are , ask fundamental question about what it is exactly that you want from a home in Spain? For example, is it a second home, holiday home or retirement dwelling that you wish to buy?

The Costa Blanca and Costa del Sol has the highest percentage of retired persons in the world, when both Spaniards and foreigners are included. If you're seeking a second home, will it be mainly used for long weekends or for lengthier stays? Do you plan to rent all or a portion of it to offset mortgage and operations costs? If so, how important is the property income? Are you primarily looking for a sound investment? Is part of the plan to open up a business and work from Spain? These are questions that need answers no matter where you purchase , but nowhere more so than Spain where the range of available options is so varied.

Quite often potential buyers have a number of reasons for purchasing property in Spain. For example, many people buy a holiday home with an idea of living there permanently or semi-permanently after they retire. In a lot of cases the motivation is to start by purchasing a holiday home with the intention of retiring there later on. If this is indeed the case then there a whole number of factors that need to be taken into consideration at the outset than you would need to consider if the motivation was to occupy somewhere just for say a few weeks every year. Conversely if the plan is to live and work within Spain then there are an entirely different set of criteria that need to be looked at. Part of the motivation might be to live within Spain yet commute to other European locations on a regular basis as transport (especially external links) is so straightforward to come by. Many people are doing just that because Spain has a lot to offer.

Whatever the reasons for buying a home within Spain whether purely for residential or investment purposes, life in modern day Spain makes it such a difficult option to refuse.
