where land find

Land to buy - where to find land for sale?
#1
I was wondering where should I be looking if I want to buy some cheap land on the island. I know about the usual websites like idealista or fotocasa, just not sure if there is some estate agent on the island that deals just with this type of properties.

I think probably the best way would be to get in touch with someone who knows someone who has land they might be willing to sell. If you know a few Spanish people, most will likely be in this category.
I know that sounds vague but the best way to get a realistic price & if you can, have your solicitor deal with it so they don’t know it’s a foreigner buying or it will likely double !!
For what is effectively “scrub land” the prices I have seen have been ridiculous.
You also need to watch out for “zoning” & where services are, assuming you want it for building.
Just my thoughts  Smile Smile

Thanks Ron; A solicitor would have to get involved, no doubt. The services wouldn't be necessary but it definitely a bonus - not planing to build, more likely to buy and hold for the future. We're not in rush here, this all might happen once we'll get hit by another recession. It's just good to know where to look and what to expect.

Take a drive around areas you'd like to buy in - often you will see handmade 'se vende' signs up, complete with a mobile number. Then get a native Spanish speaker to ring on your behalf to make initial enquiries. In rural areas the plot must be a minimum 1000 sq m for a house to be built on it.

Thanks Tamara, I was hoping to find a less time consuming process but I guess there isn't any.

My idea with the solicitor was the same as Tamara’s, get them (local & Spanish speaking) to do the dealing for you. I remember a good few years ago I was on Zante. Went to a local B&B that I had been in a number of times & got talking to one of the owners, British but lived there for years. Told them about a lovely plot I had seen for sale, they said they knew the owner & it was priced about equiv of £15000. Phoned the sale sign on it & got some Greek guy who said he owned it & it was priced at £45000 !!!

I'm sure the prices go always up once the seller know they are dealing with a foreigner. Not just in the Spain or Greece, this happen in any country in the world. Local people everywhere usually think you must be having a great lack of intelligence  if you have an accent not realising that you're talking in their only (your second) language. Completely ignoring the fact that you have been brave (clever) enough to move to (or invest in) other country, learning their language, customs, etc. 
This can also be used as an advantage, especially with an opponent thinking they are much more clever than you. It works great once you start to haggle Wink Wink
