Normally you would need at least 20 percent down to secure traditional financing for them.
If you can amass a higher percent, you may qualify foran even better interest rate.
If you don't have the down payment, you can try to obtain a second mortgage on the property.
Holiday Dreams therefore recommends you to follow the following steps about mortgage application:
1. Get a pre-approved mortgage directly with your bank, and if possible on your own home and in your home country. This process is faster, and usually you'll get better conditions. This step will also allow you to leave a holding deposit, with the comfort of knowing you have the support of your bank.
2. Once you have found the house you want to buy, and have left the deposit, compare the terms of your bank, with the following options:
a) It is possible that the property you try to buy has it's own mortgage with very good conditions, and that the bank is willing to respect.
b) In case of bank repossession, see the conditions offered by the Spanish bank.
c) Finally compare these conditions with which it can provide the mortgage broker and other banks.
3.- Choose the most convenient of the three options.
This procedure takes normally one week from the time you provide the documents.
