Purchasing a property


Costa Brava Connections are specialists in the sale and rental of luxury property in the Northern Costa Brava and Catalonia and based in Begur. We have a wide range of properties in the Begur, Sa Riera, Sa Tuna, Aigua Blava, Aigua Gelida, Tamariu and Pals areas of the Costa Brava coastline.
Throughout the Costa Brava we have commercial arrangements with a wide range of agents. Together with our Spanish partners we have a large and comprehensive choice of properties both for sale and to rent in this region. Our main focus is on the Begur area but also have properties for sale and to rent throughout the province of Girona. If the northern Costa Bravan areas of Catalonia is where you wish to be then we can help you find your ideal property in our area.
Should you be interested in purchasing a holiday home in this area, please let us know. We will be able to advise you on all aspects of the purchase. If we do not have a suitable property in our own portfolio we will contact our local partners on your behalf in order that you get the best service possible.

Buying property abroad is always a more difficult process than in a home situation where you are aware of all the local practices. It is helpful to have somebody in the area that not only speaks your language but also understands what you really want.
We will take your instructions, make a short list of properties to fit your needs, arrange the viewings and if necessary arrange a mortgage on your behalf. We will act, as your purchasing agents so that you buy what you want not what an agency wishes to sell you. As our fees are paid by the local agencies there is no benefit to us in your buying one house rather than another.
If you appoint us as your purchasing agents we can smooth the way considerably for you. Experience has proven that it is best that you appoint just one agent in order to avoid conflict of interests, which can be both time wasting and undignified. Although there is little benefit to you in approaching local agents directly (you could lose days) we are aware that this obviously does occur. If you have already approached other agents directly, we ask that you let us know, in order that we don't show you the same properties.
Spanish agencies operate on a different basis to either UK or Irish Estate Agents and Auctioneers. It is very common to have the same property offered for sale by a number of different agents who share their commission. Should you wish to purchase we endeavour to get you the best deal possible and therefore would work (without any cost to you) on your behalf.

Should you require a mortgage for part purchase of your property we are happy to help you arrange one with a local bank in Begur.

We are confident that your transactions with us will be dealt with in a friendly, efficient and professional manner whilst at the same time strictly in accordance with Spanish law, rules and regulations.
Our aim is provide a totally free personal service to our clients and will be only too happy to advise on flights, hotels and any other queries you may have.
Whilst our web site is a good indicator of the current market it is not always possible to keep it up to date as the market is very buoyant and it is not always possible to be completely up to date.
If you are already here we can put together a current list for you. If you are thinking of taking a trip over please consult us with your proposed dates. We can advise on local holidays and fiestas so that your trip is used to best advantage and you can in fact do all you need to, in the time available.


After Sales Service

We will be available to you for 30 days after the purchase of your property. During this time we will arrange the set up of all services electricity, telephone etc.
After that we offer a management service whereby we will look after your property while you are away.
Should you have to either build or renovate the property, we work with a firm of English speaking Architects from Barcelona who are happy to advise on building projects from the planning stages to completion. We also have a number of reputable builders who are happy to work on both new builds and renovation works. For a fee of 10% of the cost of the building works we will project manage the work for you. This often represents a substantial saving to you as it means you will not have to come as often in order that the work can progress.
Finally, should you wish to rent your property we can advise you on the best method to do so and if you wish do it for you. We are always seeking good quality rental accommodation for our clients.
