Very Good Estates is a member of 2 cooperating real estate organisations. This enables us to map out 95% of the sales market.
In the south of Spain most brokers work together. We all put the houses for sale in one large database.
Since homeowners often offer their homes for sale at several brokers, it is possible that our website contains the homes several times, sometimes even at different prices.
The mediation by Very Good Estates for the purchase of your property costs you nothing. In Spain the seller pays a commission to the estate agent, who shares this commission with us. It is possible that you have contacted several real estate agents. Of course you are free to do so. But I will let you know that we all offer the same thing. So I advise you to make a choice based on your preliminary project and to go out with one real estate agent. Choose the real estate agent that best understands you or puts the most effort into it for you. This avoids having to see the same thing 2 or 3 times, with different real estate agents.
Furthermore, it is important to know that unlike the Netherlands, you need a well- established lawyer in Spain, who will sort everything out for you. In the Netherlands the notary does this, but in Spain the notary does nothing more than have the deed of sale signed. The lawyer will find out if it is/will be legally built, there will be no more attachments on it, the possible mortgage of the seller is/will be redeemed. But they also arrange a tax number and electricity and water connections. We work together with a renowned law firm in Marbella. The owner is Dutch which benefits the communication.
What else should you take into account:
- In case of an existing property, the costs for the buyer consist of the following:
- In case of a newly built project VAT of 10%
* In both cases (new construction and existing construction) there will be additional costs such as attorney (1% with a minimum of € 2.000,=), notary and registration fee.
