The real estate market in Spain is heating up and property in Spain is now a much sought after commodity for Britons looking for foreign property. High demand, beautiful locations and reasonable prices combine to make the country particularly attractive for buyers looking to invest in a home overseas.

While this is good news for property agents such as yourself, it also means that there is going to be a highly competitive marketing for property in Spain, and you really need to know your offering to ensure that you stand out from your competitors.

There are a number of ways to get to know your offering and we’ll break them down further in this blog. The best way to get clients in Spain is through word of mouth, and so becoming an expert in your field and finding a unique selling point is the best way to get your business out there.

Here’s what you can do to get to know your offering and successfully market your property in Spain:

 

Spend some time there

 

The best way to get to know know the local market and get an in-depth understanding of its laws, customs, rules and regulations – is to actually spend some time there. Get on a plane to spend as much time there as you can – travel to the various regions and get firsthand knowledge of property in Spain and the local markets.

Narrow down a list of attractive and affordable regions where you think would appeal to your clients and then start looking at the properties in that area. You need to make sure the area and the properties themselves cater to the needs of your prospective clients.

 

Live the Spanish lifestyle

 

Getting to know your offering is not just all about admin and hard work and can actually be a whole lot of fun. This is particularly true when you have to get to know the Spanish lifestyle. Live the Spanish lifestyle as a tourist, and a local, travel to the most popular tourist attractions – beaches, museums, galleries and the hottest nightlife spots. Then get to know where the locals hang out, where they like to eat and drink, their favourite beaches and hidden natural wonders. Having these experiences will make you fall in love with Spain, and this passion will show when you interact with your clients.

 

Build up local connections

 

If you are going to sell property in Spain, then one of the wisest things that you can do is to build up a local network in the real estate industry that you can rely on when marketing and selling to clients. From agents to legal experts, translators, mortgage providers and so forth – each of them could provide great advice and insights, and could prove to be great for future partnerships.

 

Keep on top of current market knowledge

 

To successfully market property in Spain, you need to know the climate that you will be selling in. This means that you need to keep up to date with the country’s broader economic climate as well as the property market in Spain. While the outlook for property in Spain for the coming years is positive, things can quickly change and so it’s imperative that you keep on top of everything that will influence it.

 

Know your buyer

 

Selling property in Spain isn’t simply about property and market prices but more importantly about the people that you are going to be marketing to. At the end of the day you need to know what is going to influence their marketing decisions. What is the lifestyle of your target market? Are they buying to downsize and retire or are they buying a family holiday home? Knowing your buyers is the most important step in selling your property in Spain.

Whether you are selling seaside villas, mountain retreats, or city apartments – the steps above will take you further when you are marketing them.
