Getting a Spanish Mortgage

About Spanish Mortgages

If you’re contemplating purchasing a property in Spain, you may find yourself considering a Spanish mortgage from an overseas bank. While this might appear daunting initially, it can be navigable with thorough research before committing to anything.

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

The amount you can borrow will vary depending on your personal circumstances. For non-residents, the typical loan-to-value ratio is usually around 60-70% of the property value, spread over 25-30 years. Spanish residents who pay taxes and live in the country may qualify for larger loans over longer periods. However, eligibility ultimately depends on individual circumstances.
