Testimonial

We found the apartment of our dreams in Barcelona with the able help of Homesearch, and I do not think we could have succeeded without them. From the property search to arranging financing & legalities they offered a reliable, friendly service. In addition to this they found, coordinated and oversaw the numerous contractors we used for our refurbishment. They saved us money and helped us make a great investment, which almost doubled in value within a year, and never gave any reason to doubt the trust we placed in them. It would have been otherwise impossible to do all this from abroad - thank you Homesearch! -J. Kenedy More testimonials

 

Independent and Professional Assessment

Being an independent real estate firm is a key factor in our service. Local real estate agents are normally committed to the seller, as their fee is covered only by him. We provide our clients with the protection they need by taking the role of “agent for the buyer” and therefore making sure that the interests of the buyer are covered. Our independence is your benefit, mainly in 3 areas:

  • The property selection: While the typical real estate agent will try to offer you whatever he has in his portfolio, we make sure that you are offered only the properties that comply with our minimum quality standard and that fit you requirements, so you are not wasting time nor tempted to acquire a “cheaper” asset in the wrong street, or more expensive one without any real justification...
  • The legal aspects: When we insist that we are providing a complete legal coverage for each purchase, from A to Z, we don’t refer only to our lawyer work. Remember that in Spain most of the legal work related with residential properties is made by the real estate agent and not a lawyer/solicitor. It means that having a regular local lawyer beside you is not always a sufficient guarantee against “surprises” or “inevitable complications” and many foreign buyers find themselves in trials for years after the purchase, paying significant amounts to their lawyer, while what they really needed in the first place, before property in Barcelona was an independent real estate expert with legal knowledge.

It is easy to understand this point using the “Arras” example. Signing pre-purchase agreement (“Arras” agreement) in Spain can be a really risky business. The famous “Arras” agreement has a penalizing article that obliges both buyer and seller to complete the purchase in its due time. You will be required by the agency to sign the document within few days after the viewing, in order to “secure” the property. You will be asked to pay, as part of the “Arras” a deposit of about 10% over the price of the asset. If at any stage you want to pull out you will lose the deposit amount! It means that as from the moment you have signed the “Arras” agreement you can not pull out, but at same time when you sign the agreement you know very little about the property, so you are practically in the hands of the “impartial” real estate agent. The risk related with signing the “Arras” is just one simple example of why you should have the aid of someone who combines local real estate expertise with legal knowledge.

We make sure that any document you sign protect your interests and give you the possibility to pull out, and at the same time we investigate to find any possible irregularities with the property. This combination of expertise is the key to our success!

Access to the largest range of Barcelona Property

Typical Property BarcelonaThe real estate agencies market is a very fragmented in Barcelona and Catalonia, with many small agencies that have a small number of properties and apartments for sale Barcelona. That converts the process of searching and reviewing different assets within the same price range in to a long and time consuming process, in a way that finally most investors have to choose from a very limited offer. When we are entrusted with a search we review dozens of possible assets from as many agencies as possible as well as other sources (such a s private vendors), and are therefore able to come up with the right Barcelona property for each and every client. After being working in the sector for years now, we are well known to many of the local real estate agencies and in many cases we get preference in access to information about the best assets available.

Big savings

In many cases our team was able to generate big money saving to our clients. Some properties or apartments for sale Barcelona are advertised in more then one agency and in most cases with a significant price difference, which might reach 10 or even 15 percent! Because we go over all publications during the search we are able to find these cases and contact the cheapest seller.

Price negotiation is a common practice in Spain but it has its own rules. Using our know-how in this field, in some cases we have been able to reduce the final price considerably.

But most important: using a local expert is the key for avoiding unnecessary errors and thus maximizing your profits from your Barcelona property.

Higher Return over your Investment.

We will make sure that you purchase an asset with good potential to generate high return. We do that by:

  • Focusing in neighborhoods experiencing regeneration and coming up areas
  • Looking in areas of important public and private investment in infrastructure and public facilities
  • Selecting properties only in areas of high demand and growing popularity
  • Providing cost effective property management services
  • Offering creative ideas for increasing rental income for your Property Barcelona.

Turn-Key Service, all is taken care of by us.

Before, during and after you have purchased a property Barcelona you will urgently need someone local who can take care of all the small arrangements and matters that may be indirectly related with the purchase. After the purchase of your property Barcelona is complete you will also need someone you can trust to translate letters you receive by mail, to follow up with your local bank manager and to communicate with curious neighbors, local authorities etc. To prevent unnecessary travel back and forth to Spain for resolving minor issues we are offering a complete representation and assistance to our clients in any issue that may come up during the process of the purchase and immediately afterwards. Most of these services are included in our standard service and are not charged by us*.

*Matters that require the intervention of specialized professionals (such as technicians, builders, designers, lawyers and tax advisers etc.) are not covered by Homesearch Barcelona®.
