About The Event

IWCV member Rebecca Cabo is offering this three-part series to discuss the various themes of real estate, specifically in Valencia and Spain.  The talks are ½- ¾ hour, followed by a question-and-answer period.

Part 1: Rent vs Buying - Tues., Sept. 26

  • Rental: small capital investment, limited ability to refurbish, law provides tenant protection, flats not very modern, few have aircon/central heating, furnished/unfurnished, good starting point, etc.
  • Buy: ability to perform a substantial reform, create a space where you want to live in, preservation of capital, lack of liquidity, high purchase taxes /stamp duty (10%), low on-going property taxes, low homeowner fees, etc.

Part 2: The Buying Process - Tues. Oct. 10

  • The buying process: Due Diligence, the Arras contract (10%), paying the owner directly, the Completion/Closing at the Notary.
    • The role and the importance of The Notary, registration of the property, mortgages (for foreigners), etc.
  • The real estate agent in Spain: Role, fees, API affiliations, etc.
  • Major differences between buying in the USA, UK (I’ve carried out a number of transactions in those countries so I can compare)

Part 3: Investing in Residential and/or Retail Properties - Tues., Oct. 24

  • Reform – reconfiguring: building permits, (obra mayor obra menor)
