Why is a mortgage
the best option?

Mortgages,
the preferred option for buying in Spain

Whether you buy a property with your own funds or with a mortgage is not always an easy decision. If you have the funds to buy the house, it does not always make sense to tie up your capital. Many clients today consider a mortgage to make the most of the interest rates, the tax benefits and to maintain liquidity.

Make the most of the low interest rates 

The Euribor, the main indicator for calculating mortgage interest rates in Spain, has been low for various years. Mortgage interest rates in Spain many times are lower than those applied in other countries, which undoubtedly favors buyers who have taken out mortgages over those who buy their home in cash. 

In fact, many clients have their funds well invested obtaining higher returns, it therefore makes it very attractive for all buyers to mortgage. 

Tax deductions

When you purchase a property in Spain, you should be aware that there are tax implications, especially for properties of a certain threshold, were in most cases you will have to pay wealth tax each year. In some areas of Spain wealth tax is more than double the European average!

Mortgages can allow you to reduce both the wealth tax and the inheritance tax, as they are considered a debt and reduce the taxpayer's net worth. Therefore, obtaining a mortgage for the purchase of a property in Spain has positive repercussions from a tax point of view.
