Types of real estate agencies in Spain 

Prior to starting the procedure of company formation in Spain, investors who want to set up a real estate business should consider the types of activities that they want to provide to buyers – local or foreigners, and the type of real estate agency they want to start. Amongst the types of real estate agencies that operate in Spain are the following: 
  • local company incorporated following the standard registration requirements, which will employ real estate agents who are authorized by the local institutions;
  • foreign owned real estate agency, where the investors will typically hire local real estate agents who are familiar with the legislation in the country in which a person wants to purchase a property;
  • real estate agency that is part of a real estate network – this is of help when, for example, a local real estate agency has a client who wants to purchase a specific type of property that is not listed with the company, but which can address the request to a partner agency that has real estate properties similar with the ones wanted by the client;
  • corredores – a type of real estate service that is delivered in the rural regions of the country, with the assistance of a local broker
