Valencia City Area Guide By Whiteboard

I thought I would do a bit of a whiteboard explanation of where in Valencia City it is good to buy property and why. I put it in black and white because it’s a whiteboard right?

So in the video I explain the difference between Ruzafa and Ensanche, talk about the Cabanyal and Malvarrosa and the bit you need to avoid and also the different central areas of Valencia. I also eviscerate the area around Avenida de Francia… a bit.

Please Rescue This Apartment in Valencia

Sometimes you find an apartment so you just cannot sell so it gets ignored and never gets onto the site. Why might one not be able to sell it, price, location, construction quality… any number of reasons really. However, sometimes you get to see a property and you think “What a shame!” It has been ignored, underdeveloped, left to get dirty and generally unappreciated. Guess which category this falls into?

Property Near The Formula One in Valencia This Weekend

It has been over 40 degrees which is very unusual but it looks like it will be ten degrees less tomorrow which is when the practice starts for the Valencia Grand Prix. Who will win this year? Well whoever gets to the first corner first probably šŸ˜‰ Let’s hope we at least have a Mark Webber moment to liven things up. The point of all this of course is that this is the last year when Valencia will have a Grand Prix every year. In future it will take turns with Barcelona.

However this shouldn’t effect the real estate market in the Cabanyal area of Valencia as it has fallen a long way on the back of broken promises to gentrify the area and extend Blasco IbaƱez Avenue down to the beach.

Why A Spanish Property Sells Quickly

Last week I had a situation that even surprised me. I try to get Valencia Property and properties in Spain that are extremely salable. Sometimes this means that the speed of the movement in the market can surprise even the quickest of clients.

On Sunday last week I went to take pictures of a property in Valencia. It was an apartment in Valencia that was large, with good views at a very decent price. The owner had placed it at 125000 Euros for an apartment with lift half way between the beach and the city centre in a nice area. (You can see it here) Now as you can see it is nothing to write home about in the aesthetic sense but it does the job and per square metre the price is good.

Another Valencia Attic Flat For Sale

I was found today by a seller wanting to sell his Valencia attic flat and I am so glad he found me. He got in touch based on a search for agents selling attics in Valencia so it’s good to know that the page is working. So anyway I give you a totally modernised open plan attic apartment in Valencia. There are 78m2 of apartment and 55m2 of terrace. There is also the option to extend the apartment another 20m2 on the terrace and make a second bedroom, currently the apartment has one bedroom and bathroom.

Another Great Attic Flat In Valencia For Sale

Attics are my personal preference for living in a city in Spain. Luckily for me they are also the preference of my clients looking to buy in the City of Valencia in large part because what people are looking for when they are looking for a flat for sale in Valencia or any other Spanish city is outside space to complement the evident advantages of living on top of everything, the lack of need to have a car, having everything to hand when you need your milk and bread and the ability to get anywhere in the city within a short bus or metro ride.

Areas To Live In Valencia: The Carmen

Valencia is often described as a city made up of a lot of villages. The truth is that is what it really is. Each area has its own centre and many of them have their own history that makes it unique. So in the first of this occasional series I am going to tell you about The Carmen area in Valencia.

Historically the Carmen is the oldĀ medieval centre of Valencia.

The Real Niche In Valencia: Attic Flats

One of the niche markets in the whole Spanish property market that still holds its value well and actually does very well on sale are attics in the big cities. An attic flat doesn’t necessarily mean that it has sloping ceilings in Spain it just means it has a terrace, usually private. This is the holy grail for city livers in Spain and therefore the demand is always high which means prices maintain themselves.

A Few Bargain Valencia Properties Down in Price

Here are a few Valencia Properties for sale that have been reduced in price recently. There are reasons why these are especially good value. But you will need to ask me why.

Anyway the first property in Villamarchante has been reduced to 158000 Euros for a very quick sale. We have had it for sale at a higher price for some time but there was an issue with the electricity company having taken out the meter.

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.

There Goes The Neighbourhood. The Community in Spain

If you are coming to live in Spain then there are some basics that you need to understand. 100 basics I have already put up on the Valencia Property You Tube Channel in the 100 tips for people thinking of moving to Spain. If you haven’t seen them already then my question is why? Oh yes time.

Anyway one of the things you need to understand is the notion of the Community and this may well be one of the reasons that the protests in Spain over the last few weeks and months have been relatively benign, some would say Ghandi-like in their forbearance and restraint, and the riots in the UK are not.

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.
