Some of the reasons Valencia Property has been successfully helping clients to find their perfect property over the years are the myriad ways that people can find us online. We don’t rely on a street level office hoping that somebody will come through the door, it’s a waste of resources andContinue reading
Spanish Property Magazine 13 is out. And this time I am not calling it SPM13 for the iPad. Why not? Well now if you have an iphone you can also download the magazine and take a look then subscribe to get more. Click on the image to get yours but read below to see what is in it.
I promised a few weeks ago that I would be doing 100 videos in the style of “100 Tips for People Moving To Spain” to give you 100 reasons to live in Spain. Well the YouTube project has started with the introduction video and the first three reasons now on the new playlist here.
One of the things that people are doing a lot more in Valencia now is coming to live here for extended periods and studying Spanish in one of the many schools set up just for that purpose. Many of them are taking medium term rentals in the city and all of them generally want a central Valencia apartment walking distance to the school they are studying at.
The first Spanish Property Magazine for iPad of 2013 is now up in the app store for download. Subscribers should have it already pushed to their devices.
Included this month are articles about the reaction to the government’s proposal to allow residency for anyone spending over 160k, an overview of what 2013 may hold in the Spanish Property Market and a look at the changes in taxes and costs of purchase in Spain, how Spain is benefitting from World events and the second part of both Nick Snelling’s overview of the modern history of Spain and the Estate Agent Nightmares series
It took Apple a long time to approve this time, it seems that they don’t rest on the eighth day though and finally Spanish Property Magazine issue 5 was approved and is now in the app store. This is the longest issue yet with an extra special on the Spanish Road Trip following on from this month’s issue.
Well then, Apple has brought out a new iPad. It’s a little smaller and a lot lighter so you can read it in bed and when you fall asleep and drop it on your nose it won’t get broken. (Your nose that is, although your iPad may slide off the bed and crash in pieces on the tiled floor if you aren’t careful)
Tomorrow I am off on my travels. ON my way to see marbella for the first time, take a look at the Rock of Gibraltar, meet a lot of people who I can “Desvirtualizar” and have lots of meetings with a lot of people. This is all to do with the Spanish Property Magazine to get more agreements in place with agents to show off their properties in the best way possible.
I have been working on this for a couple of months and finally it is live. It’s full of videos, properties, articles and suggestions for anybody thinking of buying Spanish Property and this month we have a Mijas and Valencia special. What is it? The all new all signing allContinue reading
After a hiatus we are back with our summer special. Some actual positive news out of Spain and a few stories you may have missed under the radar because it seems that only bad news sells.
So Spain is Different 20 can be seen here with stories including:
1) If Not France, Why Not Spain?
2) A Tourist Visit To Aragón
3) The A-Z of Seville
I thought I would put together a video of images taken in the Valencia community. Then I thought that it would be good if I could put it together into a little competition with a prize. I had my last few copies of Laptop Entrepreneur sitting around here so thereContinue reading
Tired of all of the sniping at Spain?
Hating the way Spain is presented in the press?
Like to point out the good points about Spain?
Me too. Therefore along with a group of friends, Writers and Bloggers about Spain (Our Facebook group) we created the hashtag #SpainIs… on twitter in order to promote the positivity about the country despite all of the problems. And guess what? It was a major success. Here is a report in Sur in English newspaper about it
I have started to use Storify. I might find a way to incorporate it into the houses that are published on here. However the first one is a collection of images and more about living in Spain and the fact that Spain is Different
I have just been interviewed on Talk Radio Europe about this website and Valencia in general. For those of you who listened and then headed over here I mentioned some links during the interview and as Mark didn’t have time to get them down here they are again 🙂
One of the things I am often asked is what I do all day as a Spanish estate agent. Well the truth be told I often don’t know where the day has gone. However I thought I would give you an idea of a typical day when I haven’t got viewings and then in a future post look at one where I have got Spanish Property viewings.
I thought it was time for a change. For a year and a half we have been using the Magazine theme for the site and I thought it was about time that we changed the look, freshened it up and incorporated more images and colour. I know that a lot of people come here for the actual content over and over because it is so good but obviously I want you to make this a regular visit when you are online. Also I want you to look at Valencia Property too because that is where we put the houses. Therefore you are going to have a few links on this page directing you there 😉
Andy, @RondaSpain, is walking from Rome to Ronda to raise money for ill children in Andalucia. His goal is to raise 2 million Euros in the next two years, the walk has an initial goal of 50,000 Euros, and he is currently passing through Valencia. How can you help?
The Real Estate Agency Description of Osama’s Hideout. If i were trying to sell the house where Osama Bin Laden was hiding here would be my description:
Firstly I have to say that the owners are asking a hugely optimistic $1 million dollars for this place. But let’s get the positives out of the way.
– The previous tenant was highly security conscious as he thought of himself as very important in the grand scheme of things.
I did a slightly unscientific Facebook questionnaire about what are the top tourist attractions in Valencia. I initially put in seven options and allowed others to put their own in. So what according to my Facebook friends and followers of Valencia property are the top tourist attractions in Valencia?
Almost two years ago in June 2009 I wrote a post that was featured on This is Spain about Twitter users in Spain. It is interesting to see what has happened in the meantime to those featured back then. Many of the users from then now no longer use the service or have moved on into different accounts. Many continue using Twitter strongly, including the number one and two on the list below ;-).
