Thousands of properties will be on display from a range of estate agents and private sellers. Spain will be well represented with agents from all over the mainland, the Canaries and Balearic Islands with properties from £50,000 upwards. Or if it’s France, Italy, Portugal, USA, Cyprus or elsewhere that interests you then come along to pick the brains of people in the know (check the full exhibitor list five weeks prior to each event).

Understand the buying process

Buying abroad is complicated right? Not if you go about things the right way, and start the process by speaking to a lawyer – just as you would in the UK.
