Getting a Spanish Mortgage

About Spanish Mortgages

If you’re considering buying a property in Spain, you might find yourself in need of a Spanish mortgage from a foreign bank. While this may seem intimidating, it can be manageable as long as you conduct thorough research before making any commitments.

Traditionally, variable rate mortgages were prevalent in Spain. However, fixed rate mortgages with extended terms have become increasingly popular in recent years, providing greater stability to borrowers.

The amount you can borrow will vary depending on your individual circumstances. For non-residents, the average loan-to-value ratio is typically around 60-70% of the property value, spread over 25-30 years. Residents of Spain who pay taxes and reside in the country may qualify for larger loans over longer terms. However, eligibility ultimately hinges on individual factors.
