Get Your Golden Visa Quickly, Just In Case

The European Union wants to crack down on Golden Visa programmes. The War and the perceived abuse of the system by Russians (and also other country’s citizens) bearing in mind the current situation in the Ukraine, means that the EU has decided that now might be the time to crack down on the Golden Visa process.

We have been dealing with people getting the Golden Visa for years now and the vast majority of our clients being granted the Golden Visa are from North America and latterly the UK. However the crackdown may be more general rather than on individual countries. Only this week a block was put on applications from Russians looking for the Golden Visa in Spain.

One Step Spanish Golden Visa Properties

We are getting plenty of people looking to buy property in Valencia in order to get their Spanish Golden Visa. For those that don’t know what the Spanish Golden Visa involves it requires an investment of 500k in property in Spain without a mortgage in order to be granted a visa that allows you to move freely through Spain and the other Schengen countries without the requirement to actually live in Spain for more than six months of the year, a requirement of the usual Spanish residency visa. You investment can be on one property or a portfolio of properties to make up the 500k minimum.

The Spanish Golden Visa for non EU citizens has brought many people into Spain from all parts of the World to enjoy free movement around the Schengen area, security for their families and an excellent quality of life in a safe and accommodating country. All around Spain people have been buying up places to live so they can enjoy the rights that a Golden Visa gives them. We have sold many properties to clients as part of a portfolio so they can get the Golden Visa but it is much more common for clients to buy a single property over the threshold of 500k and use that as their base for exploring the rest of Europe

Great Golden Visa News For Spain, Not So Good For Portugal

You might have read on these pages before about the Golden Visa offered to non EU residents for investments in property over 500k. If not take a look here. Anyway, other countries also have the Golden Visa and some of them have better deals; lower amount of investment, the investment can include reform costs etc… One of Spain’s competitors in this field are our neighbours in Portugal.

The Most Expensive Properties in Valencia

Here at Valencia Property we look for good value properties for our clients. Of course this doesn’t mean cheap properties, we often work with clients looking to get their Spanish Golden Visa through buying property in Valencia so we often see property right at the top of the range in the best areas of Valencia. However, there are also properties that we just don’t have clients for usually so we don’t list them (Maybe if we did we would get clients for them, chicken and egg and all that) Most of these properties are those at the top, top end of the market and the reason we don’t list them usually is that we can find better in better locations or for better prices. As an example we would never advise anyone to spend 6 million Euros on a property in Monasterios but properties there cost up to that amount and sometimes more.

We will also talk about illegality. Enjoy.

Who Is Selling Property In Valencia?

I was asked this question by a future client (We hope) over on Twitter. They wanted to know more about the current market conditions in Valencia after I said that supply was tight, really tight. The questions why, and who is selling came to mind so I thought it was time to have a little answer of those questions for everyone and also look behind the answers at the market and reasons why. As I said supply is tight but it’s still possible to find people selling property although summer tightens supply considerably.

Meanwhile we will also feature a few of our latest listings and our latest Golden Visa property of the week.

News, Mortgages and the Latest Valencia Properties

We completed our first sale of the year today at the notary and also took a client to a second visit of a property they are very interested in up in Naquera. This week has also included the acceptance of an offer for a place in Valencia City for our highest ever sale price in the city.

We currently have three sets of clients here looking for the Spanish Golden Visa and their ticket into the Schengen area through purchase of property in Spain, one American couple, one Australian and our first British clients taking this route to maintain their freedom of movement (They didn’t previously need it of course)

How To Get a Good Tenant For Your Spanish Property

For any number of reasons you may have a Spanish property that you are currently not occupying and you may want to rent it out short, medium or long term. However many properties remain empty when not being used by the owner as it may be impossible to get a licence for short term rentals, there remains the sad fact that some owners fear tenants who overstay their contracted time period or fail to pay the rent, or sometimes the owner just can’t be bothered with all of the potential problems and hassle that may come up with a rental when compared with leaving a house or apartment empty.

The Valencia Property Autumn 2022 Report

We are getting lots of requests from people at the moment asking us similar questions but one of the most repeated is “What’s happening in the market?” We talked about this in our latest podcast, which you can listen to here, but today we thought it would be an idea to give you even more information about what is happening in the market, what’s happening about the offers, the mortgages, the way we are working and getting everything ready for your Valencia Property purchase.

The Market and The Weather Are Hot Hot Hot

Summer has arrived in Valencia with the accompanying heat both of the weather and the property market. The hot weather, well, the truth is we expect it in Spain but maybe not when it’s this hot. Equally, the market we often describe as hot in the summer but maybe not this hot. Even though banks are starting to raise interest rates bit by bit to try and make more money from the current situation in the market, they have just announced record quarterly profits too, buyers are still buying and many are still quite happy to apply for a mortgage even though interest rates are 1% higher than a month or so ago. So in this post we are going to look at the heat of the market and the weather and how to keep cool in both of them.

The Best Laid Plans, Covid 19 and a Summer Quiz

This week there wasn’t supposed to be a blog post. The writer of these posts, that’ll be me, Graham, was supposed to be away lapping up the cool, cloudy weather of Asturias in Northern Spain, eating too much, pouring cider from a great height and generally swithching off. However, despite what many people think Covid is still around and it’s back big time in Spain this week. It probably got brought back to my house last week from my wife’s school and Covid in its infinite wisdom decided to hit the whole family at once, meaning that we didn’t have to self isolate in a room at home at least.

Why You Cannot See Properties at the Weekend

I got riled by Facebook this week. I know, I know, I should just avoid it like an increasing number of people are doing but I couldn’t let it lie this time.

Apparently, according to people in Facebook groups at least, you cannot go to see properties in Valencia at the weekend because, and I quote, “all agents are a bunch of workshy cowboys who don’t do anything to justify the commission payments they receive on making sales”. And as you know people in Facebook groups are reasonable people with considered opinions who are not know-alls at all and know everything about everything despite never having worked in any of the industries they opine on so it must be true right?

What Makes L’Eliana So Popular

When I first moved to Valencia in 1998 we lived in a small rented house in L’Eliana. My wife had visited Valencia to look for a place while I prepared the van for the move and she was advised by everyone at the school she was going to be working at that L’Eliana was the place to be. She rented a small house with a patio at the back and essentially a fishpond for a pool and we moved in that August.

Six months later we bought our own house in la Pobla de Vallbona, the next town out from L’Eliana, because we couldn’t afford the prices of L’Eliana and La Pobla was around 30% cheaper despite the fact you can walk from one to the other in 20 minutes. Over twenty years later L’Eliana continues to be the place that people from Valencia aspire to live in, along with a few others that we will mention later and La Pobla continues to be around 30% cheaper because the basics don’t change.

The Valencia Property Podcast and The Bonus Ball

We have just produced the final episode of the first series of the Valencia Property podcast (You can listen to all the episodes here). We are not finishing with the Podcast we are just going to a new schedule as it has been majorly successful for us as a marketing tool and we love doing it as it gives us more of a connection with our clients. It’s amazing how many people listen to podcasts these days.

So today we are going to look back at what we have done so far on the podcast, tell you where to find those episodes, look at what the podcast has done for us as a company and look at the state of the property market through the lens of the properties we have sold this year, in terms of prices, availability, nationalities buying and a whole lot more.
