Believe it or not this is the 1000th post written on this blog and the others we had over the years, they were imported here so that’s why we know. And of course we find ourselves in a rather strange situation previously unknown. Therefore we thought it would be right to write a post about what happens next, when the Coronavirus lockdown is all over, and the timescales for that.
The New Valencia Property Website means quite a few changes to how you search for your ideal Valencia Property. The work for this took four months in total and we are happy with what we have finished up with. Let’s take you through the improvements to the site we have made in order to make it easier for you to find what you are looking for once you are again allowed to look for somewhere to live in Valencia.
We love living in Valencia and we want you to love it too. At the moment though events have overtaken us and we cannot even offer to take you to look at properties you may like here and we don’t even know how long the situation will last and cannot yet begin to imagine how it will affect the country of Spain, the Continent of Europe and the whole World over the next few months and years.
When you are looking at properties in Valencia or Spain in general you get to see some weird things, things that you are not used to. Sometimes this might well put someone off a property or even attract them to it more. Today, therefore, a bit more preparation for you, we present some of the things you might find in a Valencia Property whether typical, strange or just expected.
We are starting a social media campaign with “Your Own…” as the theme. When you are looking to buy or rent in Valencia you are generally looking for something especially for you. So whether it is your own barbecue area, your own bodega or your own … (Fill in the gap) we are sure to have something for you over on our Valencia Property homepage.
We have recently started up a rental service for our clients here in Valencia. You can see more about the service on this page. We have had lots of people signing up for the service and we have already placed a couple in their properties but it was difficult, very, very difficult in one case and they had reasonable budgets and expectations. Essentially there is little availability in the rental market in Valencia City.
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.
We get it! You’re jealous already. 2020 has started and where you are either it’s cold, it’s on fire, you have fascists in government, it’s depressing, it’s wet, it’s expensive, there’s a war going on, you don’t feel safe, you can’t go out at night or… OK it might not be one of those but you would love to be in Spain and you would love to be in Valencia. We know that. That’s why you are reading this blog.
Brexit and Valencia Property. Your Questions Answered.
This is a difficult article to write. It’s not difficult from a technical point of view, that’s easy, it’s a totally emotional thing. Writing about something that should never have even been a consideration for British people who have wanted to exercise their right to live, work and reside in another EU state was not even on the radar a few years ago.
2019 in Valencia Property has been very interesting. Unlike last year we are not going to say we doubled sales because we didn’t. Coming into the last two weeks of the year it looks like we are on course to maintain the number of sales from last year or maybeContinue reading
Let’s start by saying something that may surprise you, there are a lot of lawyers in Valencia. For a country that is not really litigious like Spain that is a bit of a surprise but when you walk around most central areas of Valencia you will see plaques and signs by the doors for each apartment building and they will inevitably include a lawyer in one of the flats and possibly quite a few.
When you look at the statistics for house sales in Spain lots of focus falls on the Valencian Community as a whole. The Valencian Community is formed by three provinces, Valencia (Of course), Alicante and Castellón. Now Castellón is the least known of the three and for the purposes ofContinue reading
The clocks have gone back and while much of Northern Europe looks bleakly at dark early evenings, cold weather and four to five months of greyness, Valencia continues to revel in warm autumnal days with plenty of light until late and a less depressed atmosphere. If you are looking to buy a Valencia Property then you can enjoy this light from one of our properties, see below.
As we have written before in these pages, Valencia is not huge. You are never far away from the centre wherever you are. With a population of 750,000 in that area and a million adding in a couple of the periphery areas that means that Valencia should be pretty fullContinue reading
