Right house at the right price
Whether you are seeking a property as an investment, a holiday home or a permanent residence, “YES Valencia” provides a comprehensive property finder service in Valencia city and its surroundings. Usually, the vendors are represented by their estate agent and their objective is to sell the property fast and at the highest possible price. You as a buyer can balance out the interests and benefit enormously by hiring independent real estate experts to work in your best interest and help you to save time and money, while finding the right fit within the local market.
Before getting started, you will meet with one of our property finders who will inquire more specifically about your individual needs and the search requirements. They will provide detailed information on the market, manage your expectations, advise on legal, financial and practical aspects, in order to help calculate the overall budget accurately including additional expenses and taxes.
During the initial phase of the process, we help you with formalities, such as setting up an NIE number (required when purchasing a property in Spain), opening a Spanish bank account, assessing mortgage options for expatriates, looking for most cost-effective ways to transfer funds from abroad to Spain, preparing a power of attorney (if the purchase has to be completed without your presence), and so on.
Your personal property finder will be your single point of contact throughout the process and will liaise with the other professionals and entities on your behalf. As our team members are also experienced relocation consultants, we will provide guidance and practical assistance with the rest of the tasks when moving to Valencia – planning the timeline, temporary housing solutions, formalities (registration with the Town Hall, residency), schooling, health care, etc.
We work as a team with you – we arrange viewings for the properties you have shortlisted from website searches, but at the same time we take the initiative to search for properties that are not listed or advertised publicly by private owners, estate agents and developers.
Due to our high working standards and committed buyers, we have a great working relationship with reputable estate agents who provide us with information about properties that are potentially coming on to the market and therefore this gives us and our clients an advantage.
We search properties strictly based on your requirements and preferences and rule out all unsuitable properties. We personally accompany you to the viewings and give you our professional opinion on each property.
Due diligence and negotiation
We gather as much information as we can about the property and the position of the seller in order to make negotiations possible and favourable to you. Once you decide to secure a property, your personal property finder will complete the due diligence check, including such tasks as:
Collect information on the specific location – closeness to amenities, future development plans, location for certain festivities and public events (open-air markets, Fallas celebrations and association spots etc.), business depending on the season and tourist routes, day and night activity;
Compare asking price with other properties of the area and overall real estate market situation;
Check on technical and legal aspects, and refer to other professionals if needed (architects, surveyors, solicitors etc.);
Collect available information on the seller´s motivations, as well as the atmosphere in the community and potentially challenging issues.
We carry out the negotiation to reach the best possible price. If required, we can arrange a trusted property surveyor to do a report on the state of the building and the property and to inform us and you about the licences and the laws, regulations and restrictions affecting the property, especially if remodelling is planned to be done.
Completing the purchase
Upon agreement on a transaction, we work as intermediaries between all parties and oversee the whole process on behalf of the client, ensuring a seamless and quick close of the transaction.
Once you collect the keys for your new property, we help you register utilities (water, gas, electricity), the Internet, TV and phone services under your name. If you need a handyman, electrician, cleaner or other professional, we provide you with trusted referrals.
Additionally, as our team members are also experts in the relocation field, in your property finder package we can also include the following services:
Legal assistance with obtaining residency – assistance with non-lucrative visa application, golden visa and EU citizen and their family member registration as Spanish residents.
Complete relocation assistance, including pre-move assistance, airport transfer services, advice and assistance with school finding, registering with municipality, applying for TIE cards, opening a bank account, setting up health insurance, after-move assistance, etc.
We believe that being a part of the community and feeling it’s support is extremely important, especially during the initial period of relocating to a new country. Furthermore, it is extremely useful to have access to reliable and accurate advice and information from fellow expats and professional relocation assistants. Those are the main reasons why we launched a platform called Yes Valencia Network – a private forum only for our clients which is monitored by our team, and which is a great resource to all our clients even after completing the transition.
If you would like us to assess your personal situation and answer specific property purchase related or relocation related questions, you may find helpful our Consultation service.
If you are still unsure if Valencia is the right place for you or you would like to have a more detailed view of potential areas of interest, our Orientation Tour may help you to make these decisions. We tailor the tour based on your requirements and take you around the preferred or recommended areas, taking into consideration your individual needs, budget, road network and public transportation, schools etc.
