Getting a Spanish Mortgage

About Spanish Mortgages

If you’re contemplating purchasing a property in Spain, you may find yourself in the position of needing a Spanish mortgage from a foreign bank. While this prospect may appear daunting, it can be manageable with careful research before committing to any agreements.

Traditionally, variable rate mortgages were predominant in Spain. However, fixed-rate mortgages with extended terms have gained popularity in recent years, offering borrowers greater stability.

The amount you can borrow varies depending on your unique circumstances. For non-residents, the average loan-to-value ratio typically ranges from 60% to 70% of the property value, spread out over 25 to 30 years. Residents of Spain who pay taxes and reside in the country may qualify for larger loans with longer terms. Nonetheless, eligibility ultimately depends on individual factors.
