Iberian Second Home Summit

Transformation of the selling process of second home properties to foreigners

31 May 2018


The second novelty of the SIMApro professional meeting program is Iberian Second Home Summit which will take the pulse of the profound changes that have taken place in recent years in the way of selling tourist homes to foreigners. What is the DNA of the current buyer of our coastal residential product, how new technologies are influencing the sales process, what differentiates the current Spanish buyer from the pre-crisis shopper, how the Brexit is affecting the British consumer. If the current offer is adjusted to the real needs of the international buyer, what factors must be taken into account to generate a long-term sustainable demand or the analysis of the main destinations in Spain and Portugal. All these will be some of the key issues that will be analyzed in this first edition of the Iberian Second Home Summit, which will be held at the North Convention Center on May 31.
