You will be liable for tax on any investment income. Make sure you do not become fiscally resident before you sell the house as you would be liable for Spanish capital gains tax.

You become fiscally resident after you have spent 183 days (not necessarily consecutive) in one calendar year in Spain. The problem is that in the year that you become tax resident you are classed as tax resident for the whole year. Timing is critical.
