Our Fly to Buy service offers carefully selected new and key ready apartments and villas from our contracted banking partners and leading developers and what you inspect on the ground is based on your pre-trip briefings.
These are the best value, fully legal property deals in Spain for 2015, as the banks and developers undertake their final clearance of repossession stock that has built up over five years of recession. If there are resale deals from our local stock that are as good, we can show these as extra benchmarks on what you get for your money and where.
Safe service and all legal
Our Fly to Buy Spanish property service has been smoothing the way to successful purchase of property in Spain for the last 12 years, but today’s buyers need this level of professional help even more because of the current turbulent market conditions.
Walker Spain Property Network can provide targeted benchmark properties for you to view in Spain within a well organised, hassle-free itinerary tailored to your wishes and pace. You will be with one of our local affiliates and/or a representative of the bank controlling the properties you have asked to seek.
No sales pressure, just a relaxed and informative experience and honest answers to all your questions. Our buyers say they like our property choices, appreciate the quality of our advice and are impressed by our knowledge of Spain’s real estate sector.
Our Fly to Buy service leaves very little to chance as we realise this could be the second most important purchase and the ultimate lifestyle choice in your lifetime. Check your flights to Spain from your local airport with Skyscanner>>
No buyer has ever lost a deposit, purchased an illegal property or been financially compromised because we act as international property brokers only to financially sound banks and developers and check all property credentials. We advise all buyers to retain their own independent Spanish solicitor to check the legal and other paperwork and represent you at the notary office when your purchase is registered.

Working to your brief
Before you visit we’ll ask you what you expect from your property in Spain. Would you prefer to be near the beach or in the near countryside; with daytime amenities and evening entertainment and fine dining? Is the property for family holidays or a buy to let investment for holiday rentals?
What type of property and how many bedrooms, private or communal swimming pool, a garden or terrace? What’s your budget and is a mortgage a necessity or an option? When we have your ideas and understand your requirements we can produce a matching shortlist for you to view.
We can provide a meet & greet at the airport and show buyers the local areas and amenities and then a selection of their pre-selected homes – carefully matched to their brief and budget. Soon you will have a much better idea of what you are really looking for and shortlist places for further review.
Most buyers are happy to inspect 4-5 properties a day, but if you can handle more let us know. We try to make the most of your precious time in Spain, so we will only present properties that best match your requirements.
Websites for general overview, viewing in Spain is for real…
But, please remember fewer than half our buyers actually sign-up for a property on their original list because their views change as the trip progresses. Websites are OK for a general overview, but seeing homes and amenities for real is the clincher for most people.
That’s the easy part, but if we have had you pre-approved for the mortgage you want (no inquiry is logged on your Experian or other credit record), then you are in a stronger position to make a meaningful offer to the bank, troubled developer or private owner and spend more time in Spain on hunting down the right place for you that aligns with your mortgage potential.
Our services, and those of our affiliate office across Spain, are normally free to all buyers as we receive a broker’s fee from banks, developers and other owners. Sometimes our buyers pay a Purchase Management Fee (PMF) if they decide on a property that does not have our normal broker’s fee included in the price. Buyers are warned in advance if a PMF is applicable.
We can suggest nearby Spanish solicitors you can select to act for you and professionals for surveys, snagging and furniture where required.
When you have chosen your property, be prepared by having all the paperwork needed to secure it. You need an independent Spanish lawyer, a bank, NIE number (fiscal ID, can be obtained in advance of Spain visit) and a pre-approval mortgage option that provides more certainty when viewing prospective properties in Spain. Good planning puts you on the Inside Track in securing the property of your choice.
