You may have all sorts of doubts when you decide to buy a house in Girona. Before you make a decision, we’d like to help you look at a few important issues when it comes to buying a property.

Is it better to buy a property directly from the seller?

It’s not unusual for people to think that buying a property directly from the seller is better than doing so through a real estate agency, but this is not normally the case.

As a buyer, you enjoy several guarantees through a real estate agency that the seller cannot offer. The market knowledge and negotiation skills of a professional will help you make the right choice and to close the purchase in more favourable conditions and at a better price than
you could ever achieve by negotiating directly with the seller.

Enlisting the help of a professional gives you greater security and saves you time. The estate agency will take care of the paperwork, advertising, calls, visits, follow-up tasks, negotiations, closing and dealings with the seller right up to the exchange of contracts. They will also offer you legal, financial, fiscal or technical advice related to property research, marketing and negotiation.

Buying in Girona

If you’re looking for a real estate agency in Girona, you should steer clear of a general, run-of-the-mill agency or one geared more towards property rentals and administration. What you need is a properly-resourced agency that really specialises in selling; a sure-footed, resolute agency that offers you bespoke services.

Deciding on the area

When it comes to deciding on the area of Girona in which to buy a house, all sorts of factors
come into play:

  • Convenience of being in the city itself, in the commuter belt or in more rural surroundings.
  • Public and private transport connections, and mobility in general. Work, schools, leisure
    activities, etc.
  • Local services and amenities: educational, medical, leisure and cultural facilities, shops and
    shopping centres, etc.

Deciding on a realistic budget

Before you start your research, it’s very important to calculate a realistic maximum budget and decide what price range you want to work within. A real estate agency which specialises in selling, which knows the market, along with all the tax costs, financial costs and additional fees, can already help you at this initial stage. You’ll save time and your research will be much more efficient.
