After two rather hectic weeks in which I have had 13 client visits and managed to make a considerable number of exceptional deals for those clients I am glad to see that things are happening elsewhere too.
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.
There are many reasons of course for wanting to live by the beach in Valencia
you are living in a big city
you have an excellent Beach on your doorstep
you have a brilliant climate although it is raining today
the connection with the city is excellent via the tram, the bikes you can hire and the buses
the area has a life of its own
There is one huge attraction right now though. The prices.
I put up this post on Thursday.
Both properties are now reserved. So things don’t sell in Spain right? If the price is right there are buyers everywhere.
It would be wrong to say that the market is still dropping like a stone. Many sales are actually being made at asking prices because it would be rude to offer less really. However you can find some amazing bargains out there if you look carefully.
Today I got three phone calls dropping the price on already well priced properties in Valencia and I took pictures of an absolutely lovely well positioned place in Olocau although it was a grey day so the pictures are less bright than they normally would be.
I thought it was time therefore to let you know more about these great bargains so you can see the value for money now available on some property in Valencia.
The majority of the Fallas fiestas this year fall at the weekend and also a Spanish holiday so expect Valencia to be absolutely packed this weekend as people come in to see the wonders that are here. Some of the Fallas models are beyond belief of course.
If you live in certain areas of Glasgow and are a middle aged male I would get out quickly. The latest report about life expectancy in the World shows that men in certain areas of Glasgow have a life expectancy of around 55 years old. Spain meanwhile has the highest life expectancy in Europe and even more importantly the highest healthy life expectancy.
As posted in the report and quoted in the Guardian
“They may be out of work and struggling with financial disaster, but the Spanish have the highest healthy life expectancy in Europe – and beat Australia, Canada, Norway and the USA as well.
