When it comes to selling a property, working with an accurate asking price is essential to ensure you choose the right sales strategy. But in order to price the property in line with market reality, the real estate agent must have accurate information about the property.

This is why CASAFARI, which aims to make more and better deals possible by bringing transparency to the property market, resorted to Cadastre reference to support the creation of all market analyses in Spain. Let’s understand what it is and how it is used in our platform.

What is the cadastral reference?

The cadastral reference is an alphanumeric code that identifies a specific property in the Catastro’s database. A cadastral reference looks like this: 6542021 FV5398J 0012 YX.

Through this code, Catastro has access to all the information about a property, such as built area, size, description, number of rooms, plot plan, how many units a building has and much more. This database covers all properties in Spain and is kept up to date, as it’s compulsory to report any change to a property to Cadastro since 2014.

This information can also be used automatically inside CASAFARI through the cadastral reference. Let’s see how!
