We have developed a methodology to review the situation and condition of a property. This comprehensive inspection has three viewpoints:
-Technical: Are there structural issues? Are there any moisture problems? Do the installations function? etc
-Urban: Are all permits in order? Is the property in conformity with Urban planning? Is there room for expansion?
-Legal; Who is the owner? Are there any debts? Are there inheritance issues? etc
We guide you through all the phases of the project:
From purchase of the building plot and choice of architect
to obtain planning permission.
From preparing and comparison of offers from contractors
up to the final choice.
From monitoring the budget, planning and follow-up
during construction up to the delivery of your home
Spanish banks provide mortgages to foreign homeowners
We are in contact with most of the larger local banks
and support you in a discrete way to apply for and
compare financing options for the purchase of your home.
There are many real estate agents on the Costa Brava
and many houses are for sale at several brokers.
This makes searching for a suitable home and coordinating
visit arrangements not always an easy task.
Through our network we have access to all houses
for sale and you can save a lot of time and effort
by submitting your requirements to us.
We will then present you all properties that match and
guide you during the visits.
Many buyers preceded you in this.
Renting out your home during periods when you do not
want to use it yourself will generate an interesting source
We will be glad to bring you in contact with one of our
partner-rental companies and/or maintenance people
that best suit your approach and your type of property.
If you already found the house of your dreams yourself
you definitely want to be counseled by an authorised
real estate agent during the purchase process.
In this case we guide you through the entire process
from negotiations with the seller and all necessary reviews
until preparation of the notarial deed.
The ideal house not always exists and often small
or larger reforms are needed to personalize your property.
We have a large network of skilled professionals,
contractors, installers, gardeners, decorators etc.
who can provide ideas and quotations before or after the
In many circumstances, you could need an official valuation
of your property; just think of a possible heritage, divorce,
donation, tax issues, company changes etc.
We are authorized to carry out these valuations and know the
local market as nobody else; you will get the report
delivered in the language of your choice.
The information in the Property register or Cadaster does not always
correspond with the actual and real situation of the property or plot.
In that case we will manage the legalization of the actual situation.
We can also assist in other projects of urbanistic nature such as dividing
plots or joining them together.
Selling our house took some time, but we have always had the confidence that Porfinca would sell the house (the house was also for sale with other real estate agents).
Sophia has taken on the supervision from A to Z, up to and including the notarial deed. Wim then supervised the refurbishing works.
We once bought our house from Porfinca after expert advice. We were also assisted very professionally with the sale of our house.
It allowed us to make our project a reality. It is rare to meet someone so available, knowledgeable, but above all so kind.
Due the Covid restrictions, the transfer took a long time, but through the professional mediation of Porfinca everything turned out well in the end.
The service Porfinca provided in the person of Frank Smit was excellent. The entire sale of our house in Playa de Pals has been very well supervised.
I sold my father's villa with the help of Porfinca. Thanks to the knowledge of Sophia, I had great support by my side and she took care of everything and was absolutely trustworthy.
The expertise, effort, guidance and presentation resulting in the sale of our house has been a very pleasant experience.
Many aspects are involved in the sale of a property in Spain, both technically, legally and fiscally. Porfinca has all this know-how in house and it is so reassuring that Porfinca will take care of all your problems and concerns
Despite the Covid restrictions, and me being unable to travel to Spain, Sophia arranged everything locally in Spain for me very competently and pleasantly and sold the house!
Porfinca's services are not limited to the expected service from a real estate agency. Thanks to Sophia and Wim we were able to buy our dream house.
We experienced professional guidance when purchasing our holiday home. No question was too much and the response was always immediate.
Both Wim and Sophia were very responsive at all times and were a pleasure to deal with. We would highly recommend them.
We can recommend Porfinca to everyone, both for real estate advice and for guidance in buying and selling of a property.
We are very satisfied with the cooperation and service of Porfinca.
We were advised professionally by them, especially with regard to the possible sales price to be achieved
In short..... Porfinca is the place to be.
We were treated like family rather than a customer.
I would award her 100 stars but am limited to 5/5.
Very professional and receptive to all our necessities; at our side during all phases of the process.
Sophia Dröge is very knowledgeable on legal matters and managed to uncover all the hidden issues. Everything was arranged for us from A to Z. We dare to say that without the guidance of Sophia the house would never have become our property.
