Currency Exchange

The Importance of Currency Exchange When Buying a Property in Spain

We cannot express how important currency exchange can be when purchasing a property in Spain. Here’s why.

The purchase of a Spanish property will always take place in Euros and not British Pounds or any other currency. Therefore you will have to exchange your currency in order to make any payments including deposits.

Currency exchange rates have the potential to dictate what you are able to afford and can change from one day to the next. This could mean you are able to afford your dream home one day and not the next. It is therefore of great importance that you do your research before making any financial commitments. This forward thinking could save you thousands of Euros!

In our experience, most of our clients first instinct is to go directly to their bank to exchange large amounts of money to a different currency, believing that as a loyal customer they will get a good rate. However, this is not usually the case and it is not uncommon for banks to take advantage of such individuals.

We would recommend that a good starting point is to look at using a company which specialises in foreign currency exchange .There are numerous advantages to this and you could save as much as 5% compared to using your bank.

Specialist currency exchange companies will offer a number of different services and different ways you can exchange your money. For example, did you know you can fix an exchange rate giving you time to find and secure your dream home with peace of mind?

We work alongside specialist currency exchange companies and will assist you with your property journey from beginning to end including currency exchange. To speak to us about currency exchange or anything else at all, please do not hesitate to contact us.
