Why Spanish Property Sellers Need To Be Careful Of What They Believe

I make no bones about it, there is life in the Spanish property market, much more life than most people suspect in fact. There is no doubt that badly priced, badly located and badly presented properties will not sell but the right property at the right price in the right place will always sell. As Meat Loaf once said “Two out of three ain’t bad” either.

However after a few conversations in the last few days I have to conclude that some people think that one swallow makes a summer and that an individual event predicts a trend even when the truth lies somewhere remote from the actual words spoken.

Let me explain…

Property For Sale in Iznajar, Córdoba

Now you are able to find out more about property all around Spain through our new sites and agreements in place I thought it was time to actually point out some amazing bargains in other parts of Spain apart from Valencia. Today we are concentrating on Iznajar in the Cordoba area of Andalucia.

If you are looking for the Real Spain then you could do a lot worse than the quiet inland town of Iznajar. Set around the beautiful Lake Iznajar property in the area has been compared to that in the Alpujrras made famous by the writing of Gerald Brennan. Quiet and yet just an hour away from the Costa del Sol, Iznajar has many attractions for you as a visitor or resident and that is the point of the main property for sale we have here

Buying Property in Spain – A Real Case Study

I have just been reading an extraordinary story. The only strange thing for me though is it puts figures to something that I already knew, ie in the vast majority of cases you should not buy property from banks.

Here is the question.

Two similar flats in the same block, same size and everything. One is available for sale for 110k and the other for 160k. One has just sold. Which one and why?

The Cheapest House In Spain For Sale

Of course if you look at the actual price the house is not the lowest in Spain because it is so large but this house for sale in Sagunto is the cheapest house for sale in Spain, or at least in the Valencia region per square metre. It also runs successfully as a “Casa Rural” making a decent income each year and this summer it was rented for 16 out of 20 weekends with a couple of full weeks thrown in for good measure.

Bank Owned Properties in Spain. Not All Are The Same

In the last blog post I talked about why you probably don’t want to buy a repossessed home through a bank in Spain. This is true for about 95% of that type of stock but every now and again some interesting ones come up. This is because you need to understand the different types of property that the banks have on their books and how they came to have them.

Spanish Government Cuts VAT on New Build Property

Finally after years of inaction the Spanish Government has acted to try and cut the backlog of new build homes by slashing the VAT rate on new build property from 8% to 4%. It is described as a temporary measure until the end of the year. This is good news for the new build properties that we hold in various parts of Spain that have already been slashed in price. Ally this to the weakening Euro, the pound was at 1.15 Euros yesterday and Spanish new build property has just become much more affordable. Look out next week for a post about our properties at half price in Desert Springs, Almeria, Benidorm and Murcia.

Which Property Would I Buy?

I was asked the question which of the properties on the site would you buy if you were moving at the moment? For me there is no competition and I will tell you where and why in a moment but first let’s look at why people buy property.

Everyone has a different motivation for buying a property in Spain or anywhere else for that matter. Mine are as follows. I have three kids one of whom is away at University but the other two are small and want outside space if at all possible. I need 4 bedrooms therefore but also I need an office space, living room and decent sized kitchen because I spend a lot of time there. I am not too bothered about off road parking and I would prefer to have outside space and a pool but without the hassles of looking after it.

I placed two properties on the Valencia Property site yesterday. These house are chalk and cheese in terms of houses for sale in Spain.

Estate Agents in Spain. A Dying Breed?

For many years the way to make a quick buck in Spain was to become and estate agent. So many people started in the estate agency business using a mobile phone, a diary and little else that at one stage there was 1 agent for every 200 people in Madrid for example. Remember that is 200 people not buyers. It includes babies, people in nursing homes, extended families etc… This was never sustainable of course when the crash came.

My particular experience of this is that around 13 or 14 of my ex clients became estate agents after purchasing through my company. Only one remains!
