If you are at this stage in your search, congratulations. This is the fun part and you should treat it as such, yet keep an eye on the details too.
Everyone has a different strategy. For example, personally I think maybe starting with a law firm might be a good idea. (we are involved with Spanish Solutions, one of the best law offices in Spain). Others think that the area search is vital. It is hard to argue with that. Maybe pinpointing a real estate agent you can trust is the key?
Certainly, doing your research is important. Finding out who your agent is and what they’ve done is definitely more important than finding the right house. Here are some steps to take.
