Does this sound familiar?

You’ve spent weeks and months on a journey of discovery, Googling, researching, collecting properties, ‘favoriting’ and narrowing down to a shortlist, all in pursuit of the perfect property on the Costa Blanca or Costa Cálida. 

Now it’s time to put the next stage of your plan into action. But how?

Well, the Micasamo team is here to help and will be by your side every step of the way. 

We understand the process of purchasing property in Spain may seem daunting, which is why our personalised property viewing trips are designed to help you to seamlessly view your choice of locations and selection of properties – as well as introduce you to our trusted team of professionals, ready to answer all your burning questions about the buying process and the legal side of things.

Planning your property viewing trip

Success stories always begin with plenty of planning and preparation, and we want everything about your property viewing experience to be fun and supremely successful.

We start the ball rolling with either a telephone call or a Zoom chat, meeting you in the comfort of your own home with a cup of tea, a glass of cava or chilled beer in hand (you, not us!) and getting to know one another.

This is an incredibly important part of the planning process because it’s our job to ensure we find you the exact property you want in your dream location. We do this by spending time with you, getting to know you, asking questions about your lifestyle aspirations, any legal concerns and financial requirements, and answering any questions you might have at this stage.

To find you the right-fit property, we want to understand you, and find out more than just the property type and number of bedrooms you’re after. We want to know, for example:

  • What do you want to see when you open your front door?
  • How far do you want to walk or drive to get to local amenities like shops, bars/restaurants, sports facilities, beaches, a supermarket, etc?
  • Which property features are a ‘must have’, for example, a swimming pool?
  • Do you want to be in rural Spain or near the coast?
  • Are you looking for a resale property or key-ready, new build?

Booking your flights

The next step for you is to book your flights whilst the Micasamo team gets to work in the background, meticulously planning for your visit.

Before your arrival, we’ll also connect you with a legal representative, mortgage advisors and any other professional help you might require, to ensure you have all the information you need regarding the buying process in Spain.

What you can expect from your viewing trip

First and foremost, we want your viewing trip with us to be informative, exciting and fun.

Unlike some agents, we don’t class it as a ‘freebie’; obsessed with selling you a property to cover the trip’s costs. We take a far more professional approach.  

We consider your property viewing trip to be a business trip – and our job in helping you to find and buy a property in Spain is only one part of our comprehensive, end-to-end service.

If you’ve been slightly apprehensive about taking the plunge and buying property in Spain (Dave down the pub with his horror stories nearly put you off!), then a viewing trip with our team of professionals will quickly put you at ease, taking you from being cautious to feeling relaxed and, yes… excited.

See what Alex and Mark had to say about their recent property viewing trips with the Micasamo team:

“We couldn’t have had a more positive experience. There was no pushy selling, but a real interest in helping us hopefully find a property that fitted our criteria. We viewed properties off-site and also at La Manga Club and felt that the Club had everything to offer that we required. Needless to say, we have managed to agree on a price and pay our deposit.”

—Alex Billington

Outstanding – personal and professional service. I would not hesitate to recommend Micasamo for finding the perfect property. Their personal and professional service has been outstanding – from initial contact and viewing trips to after sales.

—Mark Rumble

Honesty is the best policy!

We’ve listened carefully to your needs and carried out the research to be able to present you with properties that match your criteria.

During viewings, we encourage you to be honest, which sometimes means brutal honesty (don’t worry, we can take it!), so we can learn from what you don’t like and narrow the focus to get you exactly what you want.

We want you to enjoy your time and find the perfect property, whilst feeling comfortable and secure in the knowledge that we will always be open and transparent with you too. 

What does the viewing trip include?

Talking of transparency… here’s exactly what we include for you in our property viewing trips:

  • Airport transfers by a member of the Micasamo team.
  • 2/3/4 nights accommodation in a minimum 4-star hotel or a suitable equivalent such as an apartment or villa. (The number of nights depends on the availability of flights.)
  • Accompanied viewings of all properties and locations we’ve shortlisted for you, to give you a feel for the areas you’re interested in.
  • Evenings are free to sample the fabulous local food and wine, relax and discuss the day’s events.
  • Scheduled face-to-face appointments with a Spanish lawyer and mortgage adviser, if required.
  • A visit to the Micasamo office, situated at the prestigious La Manga Club, to meet our friendly and experienced team. This gives you the opportunity to learn more about the range of services available for continued peace of mind – whether you’re looking to relocate with family, become a permanent resident in Spain, a rental property owner, or a digital nomad!

Questions, questions – ask away

We want you to feel comfortable asking us questions about everything and anything you need answers to before you get on the plane and head back home.  

Honestly, there is no such thing as a silly question. We encourage you to ask as many questions as you like, afterall, it’s not every day you buy a new home in Spain. And rest assured, we’ve probably been asked every question (multiple times!) before.

We’ve found our dream home.  What next?

Congratulations – all the hours spent scrutinising pictures and videos on the laptop until the early hours, and taking that all-important viewing trip to Spain, have paid off.

You’ve found your dream home. Your offer has been accepted. The deposit has been paid. This is just the start of the buying process made simple with Micasamo.

We don’t just say we provide an end-to-end service; we actually deliver. 

Once a completion day is agreed, we’ll get busy behind the scenes on the after-sales process, which includes transfer of utilities, registering you with the town hall, home insurance, installation of utilities, etc.

And, if you can be present on completion day, it’s time for colourful celebrations. As well as a bottle of bubbly and flowers in your beautiful new home, you’ll also become the proud owner of your very own multi-coloured (no-walking required!) dog who goes by the name of Pablito Micasamo. He’s an adorable miniature version of our multi-coloured mascot and office dog, Pablo Micasamo.

He’s a highly sought after treasure and loves a good photo opportunity – especially being featured on social media with his excited new owners!

At Micasamo, we’re about much more than just ‘selling’ you a property

We are here to assist at every stage of your purchase, providing a worry-free, five-star service, whether buying a resale property or reserving a new build, overseeing equipment installation such as air conditioning, or communicating with the Spanish builders!

We’ve even organised a 21st birthday party bash for clients in the past.

We believe it’s important to continue the client relationship based on the trust we have built and enjoyed during the sales process.

We want you to feel at home and experience carefree living in the Spanish sunshine from the minute you receive the keys and open your new front door.
