Become a real estate agent in San Sebastián

San Sebastián has traditionally been one of those cities that has taken a step forward in the national property market. In fact, for many years now, it has occupied the highest ranking in terms of property price per square metre. Today, San Sebastián still remains on 'top'.

There is no denying that the financial crisis did not affect San Sebastián's property market as much as it did in other regions. Moreover, today it has grown at a similar pace alongside other large cities. In fact, last year, the year-on-year growth rate of house prices stood at 4.8%.

The average price per square metre for land in San Sebastián is currently €3165. It is true that this figure is 29.6% less than its historical maximum, but the reality is that in less than five years it is expected to recover and even exceed. Taking these data into account, it is not surprising that becoming a real estate agent in this Basque Country's city is a great and hard-to-come-by career opportunity right now.

On behalf of Engel & Völkers, the leading property brokerage company in the high-end sector at European level, we want to invite you to become part of our team and to take advantage of all that the city of San Sebastián offers.

Property on offer in Spain

In recent years, the Spanish property market has become a sector particularly valued by international investors, and it's no surprise. Between 2009 and 2014, property prices in Spain underwent notable changes, and as a result properties are currently being sold at very competitive prices. This situation applies to houses both for sale and to let, as well as to more luxurious properties, making Spain a practically unique case in Europe. The best investment possibilities can be found in Spain's high-end properties.

The high-end sector is the most interesting to the international investor. Many people the world over consider property in Spain, especially in the larger cities, to be some of the best patrimonial assets in Europe (a good example would be a luxury attic in Madrid or Barcelona). And as for the exclusively residential market, those who wish to have a second home in Spain, or buy a main house can also benefit from this situation. Logically, all of these benefits also reach the proprietors who wish to sell their houses.

Living and working in Spain

The quality of life enjoyed in Spain is the result of a unique combination of climatic, geographic, and of course, human factors. Living in Spain is an option that is contemplated by more foreigners every day, and buying a house is the first step towards that. Acclimatisation tends to be fast, and those who move in with the objective of developing business ventures can also count on easier administration when buying a house. Spain's high quality property market paves the way forward.

The type of property which one moves into in Spain will obviously depend on the newcomer's aspirations. Those who head to Spain, whether to live or to work, can enjoy the wonderful surroundings, either in an apartment with a view (of the beach, mountains or the city) or in a house right on the coast. For more information, it can be very useful to seek the advice of an estate agent in Spain, who will analyse the most interesting offers based on the prospective buyer's criteria.

Selling your house in Spain

Selling your house is another option for foreigners who live in Spain. Whether you are coming to the end of your stay in Spain or you just want to get rid of one asset in particular, the services of a reliable and trustworthy Spanish estate agent are essential. These professionals will examine the qualities of the villas in Spain that they want to commercialise, reaching the most advantageous sales agreements possible and getting the luxury properties in question on the market. Little wonder: if anything indicates the current context of the market it's that the role of the agent is basically to close a good sales agreement.

How to arrive in and travel through Spain

Alongside the properties that Spain has available, the country also offers areas of great patrimonial and natural interest. It's worth highlighting the excellent connections by land, sea and air to all the European capitals such as London, Paris, Berlin, Rome, Brussels, and Geneva, and many other European cities are less than a three-hour journey from the main Spanish airports. Those who travel to Spain have airports at their disposal not only in the main cities but also in the majority of the provinces. Another alternative to get around the country is via the complete train network that, on a smaller scale, consists of commuter trains to the inland regions, creating easy access to almost any town and property in Spain.
