Spanish banks lending over 100% on repossessed properties

As well as selling property at rock-bottom prices, Spanish banks are prepared to lend over 100% on their own properties that have been repossessed, it has been revealed.

And according to leading property experts in the country, these can be high quality properties in attractive locations.

Adam Cornwell, Managing Director of Feltrim International comments:

“Whilst Spanish mortgage lending is not expected to recover in 2012 due to high unemployment and limited bank funding, financial institutions have to optimise their balance sheets. To incentivize quality buyers they are prepared to offload these homes at rock-bottom prices and with the highest mortgages. At Feltrim International we have a luxury beachside development close to Marbella at 50% off the developer's 2007 price plus a 110% mortgage option with two years interest only – all the more incredible given the financial crisis.”

“As the phrase goes - if you see the bandwagon, you've missed it – so best to act early,” he added.
