Ola South: your property consultant in Malaga

After months of hard work, we are delighted to announce that Ola South, your property consultants in Malaga, is now online and ready to go! But first things first, please allow us to introduce ourselves and explain what we can do for you.

How was Ola South born?

After years in the holiday rental industry, working closely with property owners and potential buyers alike, we soon realised that many buyers found it rather challenging to deal with the process of buying or renovating a home in Spain. It is no secret that buying a home in itself can be quite a stressful experience, but if you don't know the culture and the language, it can become an even more daunting task. Our goal is simple: to be your sole point of contact during the entire process to make the experience seamless. 

What is a property consultant?

To start off, it is worth noting that we are not “traditional'' real estate agents; rather, you should see us as your property consultants in Malaga. Among other things, we are here to advise you and help you make an informed decision on your purchase; in other words, we will assist you in finding the one property that will be best for you in terms of investment based on your personal needs and circumstances.

We have an in-depth knowledge of Malaga, its local market and its intricacies. Unlike traditional real estate agents, we prefer not to advertise a large selection of homes for sale on our website and try to convince you that our portfolio is the best one for you. Let’s be realistic, most agents are only interested in selling you what they have on their books, not what you are looking for.

Rather, we prefer to concentrate on finding you the one property that you are really looking for. Once we have established what your dream home looks like, we will start our intense hunt, start shopping around, contact our industry partners and network of connections in the real estate industry. In a way, you can look at us as your property matchmakers! We may not be able to find love for you, but we will certainly find you the right home, the right match for you.

So what can Ola South help me with?

In short: everything from A to Z. We are here every step of the way, from finding your new home in Malaga, to helping you through the buying process or something as trivial as installing your Internet connection. There is a wide range of steps to be taken when purchasing a home abroad. For ease of reference, we have divided them into five stages:

Find your dream home in Malaga

First things first: let’s find you the right home. As mentioned before, we help you find the property that you are looking for based on your personal taste and budget. In case you decide to rent out your property as a holiday home, we can provide you with figures and factual information such as the expected annual income you can expect based on 15 years of real data. This will help you make an informed decision on whether to rent it out on a short-term basis or keep it for yourself.

Administrative and legal red tape

Needless to say, buying a home in Spain is not like buying a home somewhere else. On occasions, it can be challenging for foreign investors to understand the intricacies of local procedures and requirements. We have teamed up with a local Spanish law firm (who can assist buyers in several languages, such as English and Swedish). They can help you through the entire purchase process from signing your property deeds in front of the Notary to paying local taxes. If you are a first-time buyer in Spain, there are a few steps you need to take care of before you can buy. For instance, you must, among other things, apply for a Spanish tax ID (NIE number) and open a bank account in Spain. It is therefore important to be in good hands and work with someone you can trust.

Renovation and refurbishment

If you plan on making improvements to your new home, regardless of the type of work or size, we are here to help. In the last 15 years, we have built up a wide network of trustworthy architects, project managers and craftsmen who can help you with your project from scratch to completion. The importance of finding the right business partners is invaluable as in the long run, it will save you lots of money and hours of unnecessary worries.

Interior design

If you need to redecorate your home or carry out a partial -or full- refurbishment, our experienced partner Maribel can help you from scratch to completion. Whether you need to replace a sofa or you are in need of a full blown design project, Maribel will be here to assist you every step of the way. After decades working in the interior design industry, Maribel has built up a wealth of experience, valuable references and contacts to help you furnish your home based on your personal taste and finances.

Miscellaneous projects 

From installing the Internet, to applying for a Tourist Licence in order to rent your property as a holiday home, or setting up utilities such as electricity or water, we are also here to help.

What is Ola South’s vision?

Our goal is to be a one-stop-shop for anyone interested in investing or renovating a property in Malaga, offering total transparency and peace of mind by allowing us and our trusted partners to do all the work for you. We are your trusted property consultants in Malaga ready to make your dream home a reality.
