Last week we announced our new project "Stepping Stone Rentals". The interest from both owners of properties and tenants has been off the scale since. We have already identified or been given a lot of properties to be used for the project and we already have people wanting to start their three month rentals as soon as the 1st of July! (We need to get a move on) We have also had a lot of interest from people wanting to buy a property to include in the project. So today we are going to look at the process of buying your Stepping Stone Rentals property and then we will look at getting it ready for medium term tenants which is useful for those of you already with a property.
One of the things we love about working in the Valencia Property market is that our job is never the same from one day to the next. We get a wide variety of clients from all over the World looking at a wide range of prices and a vast array of different styles of property. This means that every day is different as we have discussed on the podcast which you can hear here. The thing that drew me towards writing about this was when I looked at the homepage the other day and the properties we had there and then compared that to a UK based site as I am currently helping my dad to sell his property in the UK and to search for another one. Sometimes you can get absolutely sick and tired of looking at bricks and there is nothing else apart from bricks and mortar in the UK market. How can you write something interesting about something that has few redeeming features? I guess thtis is why property descriptions in the UK are so bland and vanilla.
Of all of the types of visa for coming to live in Spain (Which we wrote about in this previous post) there are three that stand out because they either excite people or, simply put, they get the job done. They are the Non Lucrative Visa (The NLV), the Golden Visa (The GV) and the Digital Nomad Visa (The DNV). The NLV is the one that gets the job done. It's for people who have savings or passive income, usually in the form of pensions, and can support themselves to live in Spain. Job done. It's the other two that excite people and none moreso than the DNV, the most recent addition to the Visa list, because it promises so much to so many people who are now able to work remotely from anywhere in the world. The GV is more the preserve of those with quite a bit of money.
We have mentioned our modernisation service before on this blog about how we help our clients to get a property with the "right bones" and then get them a renovation at a good price meaning they get exactly what they want.Some people though have been asking us for before and after shots of what we have been doing. We have never really taken many before shots and the afters are difficult because as soon as we finish the furniture gets moved in and our clients start living there. However after a lot of insisting on my behalf to our renovation team about getting some photos from before, after and even during renovations it's time to show you what we do. However, firstly, a little bit of information... Price. Renovations differ in price according to what you want to do of course. If we have to demolish walls, move bathrooms, install new bathrooms and kitchens, change the plumbing and electrics, changing all of the windows or even more expensive restoring current windows due to building regulations, then it's a little different from just retiling some walls or laying a new floor.
Last week we had our first session of Frequently Asked Questions about Valencia Property and today it's time for a second helping. We also look at our latest podcast about what it's like to be an estate agent or realtor in Valencia and bring you our properties of the week and some news from Valencia along with our tip for this week.
We have long had an FAQ page on our website which you can see here and in it we even have an embedded video all about the most frequently asked questions. However we thought it time to reiterate and add more questions of those that we consistently get asked. Equally we thought the best way to answer the questions was by way of the blog posts we have written because there is so much information on the site that you may get lost and not be able to find all of the information you want. Saying that we do have a page with the most essential posts to get you a broad overview of what to do and the market in general in Valencia Property which you can see at the link but read on for more answers to our frequently asked questions about Valencia Property.
