FINDING THE BEST SPANISH PROPERTY DEALS


HOW DO YOU FIND THE BEST PROPERTY? If you are searching for Spanish property on the internet you will quickly realise that, looking through your search engine of choice may lead you down a wormhole, into a pit of despair and SEO based claptrap, that doesn’t help you find the perfect property but does waste hours of your time.

! Without doubt, you will find some stunning looking properties and apparently incredible deals, but very quickly you also realise that in many cases the reality differs radically from the presentation.

!

Of course this is one of the reasons we set up the Spanish Property Network. Working hand in hand, directly with buyers, eliminating the time wasting, the cons, the properties that will never sell, the dodgy agents, the extra commissions layered onto the price without you knowing and a whole host of other little annoyances. Ensuring your Spanish Property search becomes a pleasure and an adventure as we guide you from point A to your destination, the perfect property for you. In an efficient and stress free manner. Without hassles, irritations and heartaches.


HOW DO YOU FIND THE BEST PROPERTIES?

Obviously, we cannot guarantee that the property you should have your eye on will not be sold before your visit or that the owner will be totally inflexible on negotiating the price or conditions but we will do everything within our power to make sure that you get the best choice, the best value, the best advice and the best result with your Spanish Property purchase.

GRAHAM HUNT

! However, we do ask something of you: We want your trust.

LISA SADLEIR

! We want you to put your search in our hands, to guide you. We want you to allow us to represent you with individual owners, sellers and agents to eliminate things that would obviously not suit you. We want to have a set of properties ready for you to see when you visit. Properties that will all tick the boxes and that work within your parameters. To do this the more information you can give us the better. To this end, we initially want to know more about you. We have included a quite detailed form below. This is the first step on our path towards understanding your personal requirements and starting to head towards what you want. Write as little or as much as you want but please make sure to give us as much information as you think we need in order to help you.

We will assign you your own personal assistant in Spain. Not some sales agent based in an office that talks the talk, someone on the ground in the area you are interested in. This person is linked in to the local community and property market and has access to everything that is happening there. They will sort the wheat from the chaff and set you off on the right path towards finding you the perfect property in Spain.

SPAIN GET USED TO IT


WHAT DO YOU NEED TO GET USED TO? When you are looking to come and live in Spain and maybe to buy a house for sale in Spain you are going to a different country (Obvious huh?) with different customs and different ways of doing things. Therefore there are some things that you will need to get used to. Spain will not change in the near future but you need to do so if you want to fit comfortably into your new home (the house and the area).

! So with my tongue firmly in my cheek what do you need to get used to?

!

1) You will not be able to sort things out over the phone in English. Therefore sort out a representative to arrange things for you over the phone and make sure that the representative speaks Spanish fluently. If you think that shouting in English will work, don’t believe it. Get used to it.

!

2) You will need to get used to sleeping in the dark. One of the great boons of Spain is the “Persiana” When the blinds are down your room will be totally dark. Get used to it and don’t be expecting the morning sun to wake you up.


WHAT DO YOU NEED TO GET USED TO? 3) You will have to queue and it will be done in a slightly different way. You just lounge around remembering who you are behind. Get used to the idea that you will queue and you will waste a long time in the queue before finally finding that you were queueing in the wrong place and you should be lounging around somewhere else waiting for your turn.

! 4) Just because it was done that way last week doesn’t mean that it will be done that way this week. Just because the civil servant who served you did it one way the last time you were here doesn’t mean that a different civil servant will do it in the same way this time. Get used to it.

! I find it best to cultivate a Zenlike attitude when dealing with a lot of these things. Take it as a Zen challenge and see if you can keep calm and carry on. The ability to smile though the travails and resist the urge to go all Michael Douglas in “Falling Down” should help you.

! 5) Don’t be surprised when your direct debit fails or reverts to the original owner of your house or their bank account and you get an irate phone call about it or even your electric cut off. Don’t blame the messenger it’s the computer’s fault believe me I know! Get used to it.

6) Expect to cultivate selective ignorance. Once you find out that it doesn’t matter what is happening in Corrie, Eastenders and the X Factor your life will improve immeasurably. Other people here don’t care to discuss it either. Get used to it.

! 7) You cannot eat out in a restaurant before two o clock for lunch and trying to eat your evening meal before 8.30pm is impossible. Stop trying to keep to Northern European times. It isn’t going to happen. Get used to it.


WHAT DO YOU NEED TO GET USED TO? 8) Relearn to drive and stop expecting manners and speed cameras meaning everyone crawls everywhere. Cultivate a more aggressive yet restrained style of driving in order to get anywhere. However if you are involved in a crash expect manners and facts as you fill in the forms required whilst standing in the middle of the road disrupting all of the traffic. If you are expecting something different just get used to it.

! 9) Expect pathetic fines from the police. Over the last few months I have heard of police fining people for leaning forward to talk in the car while sitting in the back seat, a fine on wearing bikinis off the beach in Mallorca, a fine for producing your own electricity with your own solar panels, a cyclist fined for eating a croissant and a potential fine for watering a town hall inspector underneath a balcony. Get used to it and be careful out there.

! 10) You will wake up invariably in the sun (As long as you open the persianas) Don’t complain that it is bright in the mornings with the sun being low, just enjoy the fact that your windscreen wipers on the car are rotting through lack of use and mistreatment by the heat. Get used to it, after all this is one of the 100 reasons you choose to come and live in Spain.

So there you go, leave your complaining head at home and just enjoy the ride. Spain is still different and sometimes it is very, very different indeed. Get used to it.


FOREIGN BUYERS OF SPANISH PROPERTY


WHO IS BUYING PROPERTY IN SPAIN NOWADAYS? Are we serious?

!

Some people think that we cannot be serious when we tell everyone how busy we are. They are surprised when we tell them to book early to make sure we can give you the best individualised service: whether with myself in Valencia; Lisa in Malaga; Simon in Barcelona; Nick in Gandia; David on the Costa Brava, or any of our other members of the Spanish Property Network.

!

However, it’s true. Look at the data following page.

!

The first table is an informative one from Mark at Spanish Property Insight about the number of foreign buyers of property in Spain. Look at the trend. There is very little red, and even that one is a big surprise, fewer Chinese in 2013 than in 2012! But look at the numbers and percentages of all other nationalities: 200% more Belgian buyers; 120% more Russian buyers; 150% more Swedish buyers and even 15% more British buyers allowing the Brits to maintain their lead on buying in Spain. Most tellingly, there was even an increase of 50% in the last year of people from “other nationalities” buying property in Spain.


WHO IS BUYING PROPERTY IN SPAIN NOWADAYS? More people buying, meaning there are more people visiting, meaning we are very busy!

! The local market however continues to fall precipitously (As there is no finance available for local buyers and most require mortgages to buy)

We will leave you to digest that one. In three years, there has been an increase of almost 100% in the number of foreign buyers in the market. That is not only a good trend it is also hugely statistically significant. And, in the last two months ,the numbers of visits are increasing radically too. Through last year there was an average of 11.01% of sales made to foreign buyers. However the last quarter figures were 14.8%. Interestingly in the areas where the Spanish Property Network works the figures were considerably higher (Only to be expected in areas encompassing the Costa Del Sol, the Costa Blanca and the Islands of Spain which have all traditionally sold a far higher percentage of properties to foreign buyers than Spanish nationals


WHO IS BUYING PROPERTY IN SPAIN NOWADAYS? So now look at this pie chart of where people are buying‌

The question that this raises is also interesting. Do you see why the Spanish Property Network started its activities in Valencia and Malaga? ! Over 60% of all Spanish Property Sales to foreigners are concentrated in those two areas. Obviously, Valencia includes CastellĂłn and Alicante and Andalucia is a huge chunk of Spain but we are trying to give you what you want as a foreign buyer in Spain.


WHO IS BUYING PROPERTY IN SPAIN NOWADAYS? Very soon we are expanding into Murcia and both the Balearic Islands and Canary Islands, meaning that we will be covering virtually everywhere that people buy in large numbers. Murcia can wait a bit though! ;-)

! However, we are also looking to serve niche markets and those niche markets are not actually that niche at times. We have huge demand for Barcelona, especially from American clients (Many of those other nationalities are Americans and Canadians, buying in Barcelona itself).

! We have excellent demand from the nordic countries for Northern Spain, including Asturias, so we have expanded there with new collaborations in the area. And finally, we have a lot of relocation clients looking to move into Madrid. This is less for purchase and more for rental but we are looking at the top end of the rental market in Madrid.

! What do you think of these figures? Do you take them at face value or do you think there is more of a story behind them? Get in touch and tell us.

BARCELONA


BARCELONA Sant marti !

Barcelona's Upcoming Areas (Part 1)

Most foreigners, whether they are buying as an investment or coming to live and work in Barcelona, are normally interested in apartments in the areas that they visited when they were here on holiday so properties in the atmospheric Ciutat Vella, the modernista Eixample or groovy Gràcia are always in high demand. However, whilst certainly not knocking these areas - I lived in El Born for four years and currently live in the Dreta de l'Eixample, myself - I always encourage potential buyers to consider areas that are a little way off the well-tramped tourist trail. Apart from anything else, the effect of foreign buyers has meant that the price drops caused by the economic crisis have been less pronounced in Ciutat Vella and L'Eixample and furthermore, there is a lot to be said for living or staying in an area where you have a greater chance of blending in with the local community. So the area I'd like you to consider today is the District of Sant Martí, which spreads out to the north of both Ciutat Vella and L'Eixample, and is home to around 220,000 people. Sant Martí is an enormous district and most of it was once under the jurisdiction of Sant Martí de Provençals, which was a separate municipality from the City of Barcelona until 1897, but today in can be broadly divided into two areas.The dividing line is Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes, conveniently known as Gran Via for short, which splits the district into neighbourhoods that look more towards Barcelona City Centre and those that tend to look out to sea.


BARCELONA Sant marti The beach neighbourhoods of the Vila Olímpica, el Poblenou, Diagonal Mar and El Besòs i el Maresme are the part of Barcelona that benefited most from the urban development that took place before and after the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games. When I arrived in the city in 1988 most of coastline was still occupied by disused factories and slums but now the city boasts some of the best urban beaches on the Mediterranean, which means these neighbourhoods are perfect places to buy a holiday apartment. Furthermore, as they are relatively modern, the kind of properties available are much more varied than in the overpriced Barceloneta in Ciutat Vella, which as it was built in the 18th century is limited to small flats that are not really sufficient for most families. Just to give you an idea of the variety of properties available in Sant Martí, let's take a closer look at these seafront neighbourhoods. La Vila Olímpica was the athletes' Olympic Village in 1992 so offers modern apartments and not only boasts a beach but also the Olympic Port, the nearby Parc de la Ciutadella and the fact that you are within walking distance of the city centre is obviously a big bonus. Property prices in Vila Olímpica are just under €4,000 but there are always bargains to be found and you'll find even higher prices in the select Diagonal Mar, which is actually Barcelona's newest neighbourhood and was only completed a few years ago.


BARCELONA Sant marti As far as good returns on long-term property investment is concerned, however, it is the other two seafront neighbourhoods in Sant Martí that are of most interest. The old working-class barri of Poblenou with its marvelous Rambla and buzzing local life is in my opinion one of Barcelona's most charming and authentic neighbourhoods and the fact that it is home to a real community has meant that it has been hit quite hard by the economic crisis, which in turn has led to a drop in property prices. The great thing about the area is that the buildings are mainly late 19th and early 20th century so you really get the sense of being in the real urban Barcelona with the advantage of having a golden sandy beach at the end of the street. I have to admit that my advice on the last of Sant Martí's seafront neighbourhoods - El Besòs i El Maresme - is a little more speculative. Until the Forum area was built about 10 years ago, El Besòs i El Maresme was one of the most rundown areas in Barcelona and although much improved, its reputation lives on meaning very low property prices. However, with the Parc del Forum and the Bathing Area close by, El Besòs has a lot going for it and the fact that the Barcelona International Conference Centre is located here means that gentrification is already starting and there are plans to build Barcelona's new Marine Zoo here too. All this makes the area a great investment as you can buy cheaply now and the value of your property will rise quite significantly in the coming decade.


BARCELONA Sant marti Moving on to the inner city neighbourhoods of Sant Martí, these are less attractive from a beach tourism point of view but as they are so convenient for the city centre they are great places to live. Furthermore, from an investment angle, this area is particularly interesting as El Parc i La Llacuna, Provençals de Poblenou, Sant Martí de Provençals and El Clot are all part of the 22@ Innovation Area, which is bringing service and technology small businesses into the district. Similarly, the reurbanisation of Plaça de les Glòries that has just started aims to turn this corner of Barcelona into an alternative city centre and the plans for the square and its surrounding park look incredible. Confidence in the project is so high that Hiyatt Hotels have just spent €150 million on the nearby Torre Agbar building and plan to spend another €35 million more on turning it into Barcelona's prime hotel. So if you are thinking of buying property in Barcelona, you could do worse than follow Hiyatt's lead and consider investing in the often overlooked District of Sant Martí.

HUGE ATTRACTIVE PROPERTY IN OLOCAU WITH EXCELLENT VIEWS AND AMAZING PRICE This is just superb value now as it has been reduced by an obscene amount. How do I know? Well six years ago I went to see this property and the owner asked me a quite obscene 780k (It never went on the site) Now the owner is asking an equally obscene but in the opposite direction of 230,000 Euros.!

!

Set on an established estate built into a hillside within striking distance of Olocau and Marines with lovely views over the Turia valley, this house stands on a plot of over 2000m2 and is 324m2 in total itself. The main living area comprises a large living/dining room, kitchen, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. !

!

Downstairs there are two more bedrooms, another kitchen, bathroom and a stunning living area that used to be a terrace but has now been glassed in and offers around 80m2 of living area. The house can be bought furnished if required and comes with central heating, a new kitchen in the main living area and much more. !

!

Outside there is a fabulous swimming pool, excellent paellero and barbecue area and plenty of storage space under the terrace that wraps itself around the pool. Off road parking, gardens with sprinklers and lovely countryside views from the outside terraces. !

!

Well worth a look at this new and very attractive price.

LOVELY VIEWS OF GREEN SPAIN FROM CECEDA IN ASTURIAS Asturias is known as the Green Spain and it gets this name because of one reason, it rains, quite a lot, OK a lot. However the gastronomy, the landscapes, the drinks and the lifestyle in Asturias are second to none, especially when it isn’t raining. Here we have a good 2 bedroom detached house in excellent condition, located in the very picturesque traditional village of Ceceda, with stunning mountain views. The village has a nearby train station (just outside the village), a couple of bar/ restaurants, doctor's surgery etc. Ceceda stands between the gorgeous beaches of Asturias and the mountains of the Picos de Europa. Well communicated with great views and a stunning location.
