Making an offer on property in Spain can be an exciting yet daunting experience. There is a fine line between securing your ideal property at the best price and losing it forever.

The decision to invest a large amount of money is no easy task. And when you make that investment abroad, you move further out of your comfort zone. Finding many variables and unknowns that will affect your final decision. It is advisable to do independent research, take your time, be cautious and, essentially, do not be pushed into purchasing what an agent wants you to buy.

This may sound like a harsh warning but we are speaking from first-hand experience.

In 2017, my wife and I decided to relocate from Shenzhen, China to Andalusia, Spain. My wife being Hong Kong-born, and myself being Danish, having lived in Hong Kong and China for the last 31 years, so the move from what we were very familiar with, was not a decision we made lightly.

We had visited Andalusia a couple of times to see whether we would like to live in Southern Spain, and we found the climate, food, the people, and lifestyle to our liking. Having made the decision to move to Andalusia, we searched the internet for companies which could assist us with the process of relocation.

After a thorough search, we settled on “Move to Malaga” run by Lisa Sadleir and Louise Brace, who have both lived in the Malaga area for years and who know the area inside out. We contacted Lisa to find out how the process would work. After the initial email contact, Lisa arranged a Skype video call, in order to find out more about my wife and I, as well as what we would be looking for, i.e. moving to Southern Spain permanently, or just living here for some months of the year, whether we were looking to rent a place to live in or whether to purchase our own property? If we were looking to purchase a property, what would we want the property to include.’

After some correspondence back and forth where our requirements were narrowing and focusing on what we were looking for. Lisa then started to send various suggestions of properties in the Malaga area. We also looked at various property sites, to see what was available.

Having narrowed the search down to a couple of locations, my wife and I booked our “exploration” flight from Asia to Andalusia. The day after we arrived Lisa and Louise came to our hotel for a quick chat before we started to look at properties. And off we went!
