Real estate agents not only teach flats. We can be much more useful and greatly facilitate the task of finding housing.
In the portals we can see infinity of houses, many photos, even houses with different prices, and all that drives us crazy.
The photos give us an idea of what this house is like, if it needs reforms, its views, if it has been cared for over the years ...
A good real estate agent is also your personal guide. Tell us what you are looking for, your needs. We take care of finding what best fits. We already have experience in this, and we know if a floor is going to fit you or not, at least at first glance, because we know the area, perhaps the building, and our job is that you are satisfied with what you buy. We can save you unnecessary visits, saving you time.
We can understand the needs of each one, a young couple without children is not the same as with children, a retired couple that receives family for vacations, and those who go on vacation.
We know where to look, we are in contact with other agents and we can find a good selection in a short time so that later you decide which one to visit.
We will also accompany you in the purchase process, informing you of legal aspects, what you are going to need and what you should check, clarifying your doubts and others so that there are no setbacks or disappointments.
In addition, we will advise and help you after the purchase in the changes of ownership of the services (water, electricity, direct debit of taxes ...)
In summary, we can say that a good real estate agent can also be your personal advisor, saving you a lot of time and making it easier for you to choose your home.
It is a joy to find the house that we have been looking for for so long, in which we have been thinking so many nights: if this one that I have seen today lacks this, the other lacks that ... but we have finally chosen the one that the more it adapts. Because it is not easy to find, because we are always afraid of having made a mistake and it is not a garment that we can easily return in the store.
We go to the notary, we signed the deed and everything is over. But we know that it has not completely finished, now you have to register the water, electricity, domicile IBI payments and garbage, pay taxes ... Yes, ok, but here what we want to show you is what you have to check before signing the purchase to not add any more tasks to those that we will already have.
We trust that all this has already been done to us, but exactly what? Well the following:
1- Keep up to date on IBI and garbage payments. Where do I check it? In the municipal treasury of the town, in our case, Benalmádena. The owners can sign an authorization to the real estate agency that is responsible for the sale of their home so that they request it, but it is also something that they normally request in a notary to the city council for the day of the sale, presenting the document where we can see that it does not have pending payments of any of the concepts, and that if they have them, the amount is withheld from the seller.
2- The updated simple note, since they have an expiration of three months. In the simple note we see who is the owner and if the property has charges: mortgage, easement, usufruct.
3- Community certificate stating that you do not owe fees. If it is signed by the president of the community, the better, although usually it is signed only by the administrator.
4- Last receipt of services, paid. In this way we can make a simple change of ownership and see that it has no electricity or water debts.
5- The energy certificate is mandatory to be able to put the apartment up for sale, so to sell it it is essential. Also keep it because it is valid for ten years.
These checks can seem overwhelming, one does not know where to go, who to call ... That's why at Euromarket we take care of everything. We accompany the buyer from the moment he decides to buy the house until even later. Our relationship does not end the day of the signing of the deed, but then we accompany you with the procedures you need: changes of ownership in water and electricity services and domiciliation of taxes.
Because real estate agents, we not only show flats.
We want to inform you about tourist housing. Maybe you are thinking of renting your empty apartment to tourists, and you do not know how to do it.

You should also know that there is a difference between a tourist house and a tourist apartment. The tourist apartment is considered an economic activity, and requires an opening license.
Housing for tourism purposes, is a second activity or economic income for someone who rents their home, but is not professionally engaged in such activity. In addition, you can only have two homes for tourist purposes within a radius of a thousand meters.
The maximum rental period for the same person is two months for it to be considered a tourist rental.

Once you meet the requirements and decide to start the activity, you must register your home by presenting the responsible statement in the Tourism Registry.
Remember that you need the first occupation license, which you can request at the town hall if you do not have it. It will take time to arrive, so you can attach the request.
You also need the deed to the house.
Once you make the registration, the Administration gives you a CTC entry registration number, and later a VFT / PROVINCIA / 0000 number, which is the identification number of the house, which must appear in the advertising, in the travelers part or on invoices.
But here does not end everything, you must keep a register of travelers and communicate the data to the police. Here we leave you the links to the web with all the information:
