We have talked in these pages before about what people are looking for when buying their Valencia Property and we have also talked about what to do as an owner to make your property look as attractive as possible to a buyer. What we haven’t done however is to tell you how to add value to your Valencia Property, whether that be a perceived or real value. There are many ways to do this and today we will be looking at some of the best, what these steps are likely to cost you and when and where they are possible.
Those of you who listen to the podcast will have heard about the timelines you need for buying Valencia Property back in episode one (You can get it here and while there listen to our other episodes and subscribe). However, we know that there are some people who prefer reading to listening and therefore today we are going into a deep dive about the timelines you should be thinking about when looking to buy property in Valencia. Now this is an overview and for some people the timeline will change but as a general rule of thumb these are the stages and actions you should be thinking about.

We are going to go with a similar property in both cases and look at five, ten and twenty year horizons. For the numbers we are going to use an example from last week where the client took on a mortgage at a fixed rate over 20 years.
This may not seem very important at the moment when you are locked down and unable to travel but it looks like Spain will be opening up for the summer perhaps with a vaccine passport, perhaps through travel corridors. Most people are talking about being able to go on holiday safely but others are waiting to be able to come to Spain and buy their new home or holiday property.
There are a lot of things that happen in the background when you are buying a Valencia Property. Your agent, lawyer, mortgage company and bank are all doing things to make your purchase as smooth as possible and many of those things you may know about but never see.
However, in this post we are looking at the little things you will need to do that may come as a surprise at each stage of the process of purchase
