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.
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?
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 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 Ibañez Avenue down to the beach.
Sometimes a property gets offered to be placed onto the books at Valencia Property and I seriously cannot believe the price, either one way or the other i.e, too high or so low! I have one on the site now (Among many other excellent places) which is a beach apartment for sale in Valencia just a two or three minutes walk from the beach for just 70k Euros.
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.
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.
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.
