Spanish real estate shows are located around Europe and can be found in most major towns most months of the year. The larger exhibitions will be found in the cities and are normally held twice a year lasting 3-4 days. The larger exhibitions will charge for entrance though the cost is minimal.
I think you will find that the amount of information that you can receive inside the event will make the entrance fee a real bargain. Apart from the usual stands of Real Estate Agents these large exhibitions will also provide seminars at certain parts of the day. These seminars will outline the viewing tours you may be interested in as well as the Spanish property market in general and legal information from professional solicitors. The legal aspect is one of the most worrying for buyers. The thought of making such a large financial commitment in a foreign Country will always be of great concern to most people. With fluctuating currency markets and foreign legal issues to contend with you can understand that buyers prefer to do lots of research before hand to ensure they know exactly what they are getting involved in.
London, Birmingham and Manchester in the UK are some of the biggest exhibitions. If you subscribe to one of the overseas property magazines then you will be able to apply for free tickets. You need 2-3 hours minumum to be able to get round without having to rush. The seminars last around 20-minutes and are normally every half-hour so you should be able to attend the ones you want in this time frame. The pre-event promotion will normally provide you with all the times for the seminars to ensure you that you can plan your visit more accurately. Thankfully the legal seminars at the exhibitions will help inform you of any pitfalls and you will also be able to ask questions one-to-one with the experts after the session.
This is invaluable information and will go along way to allaying your fears of the legal issues that may arise when buying property in Spain. The smaller property fairs and much simpler and would only last for 1-2 days and are held in conference rooms at Hotels normally. These smaller events are free to enter and you can get a good idea of the types of property available, the current market value of Spanish property and a chance to speak to the real estate agents with any questions. It is always a good idea to have as many specific questions written down before you attend these Spanish property exhibitions.
There is nothing worse than walking away only to find that you never took the opportunity of clarifying certain questions. The agents will only be too pleased to answer queries you may have no matter how basic. They understand many people will ask the same type of questions regarding finance, the best properties to buy and in what location? You can read as much literature on buying Spanish property as you like buy actually putting your questions across in person is by far the best way. You can also book the Spanish property inspection tours here to the area where in Spain where you are interested in purchasing property. The viewing tours last 3-5 days and can sometimes be free but a fee to cover the flight is normal. If you have an interest in Spanish property then check the local press for the nearest event near you.
I think you will find they are well worth the visit and the information you can receive inside from professionals is priceless.
