Taking into account the past Real Estate bubble that dramatically affected investments made by foreigners, you must understand the ins and outs of buying a house in Spain, and that their investment can - and sometimes does - all go horribly wrong.
Because Spain is a wonderful place to live the property market here is an attractive option for a safe investment, if you go about it in the right way. But if you don't understand the Spanish property market properly, you and your investment can be quite vulnerable.
Attracted by reasonable prices, cheap flights, good weather and Spanish lifestyle, investors increasingly look to Spain as one of the best options available in Europe.
