Selling a property on the Costa del Sol
If you are toying with the idea of selling your property in Spain, it’s important to familiarise yourself with the journey that lies ahead. Selling a property requires some effort and isn’t a decision that should be taken lightly. You need to be well equipped with all the facts to establish whether in fact selling is the best possible move or whether renting, remortgaging or even holding on to your property for a while would be better options at this particular time.
