What you need to know
There are no restrictions on foreign buyers purchasing property in Spain. It’s important however, to be aware of the specifics of Spanish mortgages before you start the buying process.
When purchasing a property in Spain, you’ll need to think long-term. Spain’s capital gains tax of more than 20% can offset any benefits of buying for short-term investors.
Also, you will need to factor in property transaction costs of around 10–15% of the property’s value. Even if your home rises in value, it is still prudent to bare in mind that you’ll probably need a minimum of three to five years to offset the buying costs.
