Following on from Germany, in terms of nationalities buying in Spain, comes the United Kingdom and then France. We are pleased to confirm we now have a qualified French mortgage adviser on the team. Vera Simao will introduce herself in the next What are our advisers saying? bulletin. We had been actively looking for the right person for a while and since joining us a year ago, Vera has managed many of our French enquiries and has successfully completed many mortgages.
In 2021, 58% of our French buyers bought for holiday use and 29% for their main residence. It’s interesting to see in our data that only 41% of our French clients are resident in France (for tax purposes at least) and there are a good number of French clients, living in the USA, buying in Spain. It’s certainly a market to keep a close eye on.
We’ll be there and very will be happy to help if you are a French speaker looking to buy property and get a mortgage in Spain,
