"A good decision is based on knowledge"
The taxes you will be due to pay depend on whether you are buying a new home straight from the promoter or a previously owned home.
Buying a new home: as a buyer, you will have to pay value added tax of 10% (VAT) directly to the seller together with the purchase price.
As the buyer, you also have to pay stamp duty to your autonomous community (region), which is 1.2% of the selling price which is stated in the deeds.
Buying a previously owned home: in this case you do not pay value added tax but property transfer tax (ITP between 8%-10%),
to the autonomous community in which the real estate is located
