Success Story 3


Success Story 3

Barcelo Property Invest was approached by a non-EU family from Eastern Europe keen on relocating to Spain under the Golden Visa program. They sought our expertise to find a luxurious modern villa featuring high-quality finishes that balanced elegance with functionality. The clients also desired a property that offered privacy and was nestled in a natural setting, providing a serene environment for their family.

Client Background

Driven by the desire to obtain Spanish residency via the Golden Visa, the clients required a property that offered both luxury and practicality. Their specific vision included finding an elegant, modern house with exclusive sea views and ample space for their three kids and three dogs in a quiet and secure neighborhood outside of Barcelona. The property needed to have five bedrooms, a spacious garden, a swimming pool, and be within a 15-minute drive from the beach. Despite facing language barriers as English speakers in a Spanish-speaking environment, they were determined to find their ideal home.


Challenges Faced by the client:

Success Story 3

  1. Language Barrier: Limited proficiency in Spanish could have posed significant communication challenges during the property search and negotiation phases.
  2. Navigating Golden Visa Requirements: As non-EU citizens, the clients were unfamiliar with the local legal and administrative processes required for the Golden Visa.
  3. Conducting Property Search from Abroad: Managing the property search from abroad presented unique challenges, requiring effective local representation to ensure that all details were meticulously handled.
  4. Highly Specific Property Requirements: The clients had precise expectations for their new home, requiring a property that would not only serve as a residence but also qualify them for the Golden Visa.

Results & Conclusion
