Frequently Asked Questions
How much can I borrow?
A mortgage in Spain is based on the valuation or purchasing price of the property and depends on the conditions of the bank. In general 60-120% of the value can be borrowed for urban real estate, depending on the residential status of the applicant and the purpose of the purchase. For rustic and commercial properties, generally speaking, only 50% financing is possible.
What is the current interest rate?
The interest rate in Spain is based on the Eurobor. The Euribor rates are based on the average interest rates at which a large panel of European banks borrows funds from another and as such these rates are considered to be the most important reference rates in the European money market.
Banks will add a margin between 1 – 1,5% tot the Euribor depending on the type of mortgage and the circumstances of the applicant. For the latest Euribor please check the Bank of Spain.
