Spanish Banks Offload Properties with huge discounts before the Bad Bank is launched.

You may have heard that the Spanish Government are setting up a Bad Bank but what exactly is the Bad Bank.

Spain's so-called Bad Bank ( Official name SAREB) will buy billions of euros worth of real estate from the distressed Spanish Banks for around half the book value. The banks will then get shares in the Bad Bank and this will then reduce the liabilities of the banks who have removed the negative real estate values from their balance sheets.

As the banks would prefer to get cash in before the deadline of 31st December 2012 the banks have been reducing the prices for their bank repossessions to record lows so that they can get money in before they have to transfer their real estate into the Bad Bank .

The Bad Bank will then sell on the properties to investors over a 15 year period offering returns on average of 14%.

It all sounds very good but it appears that the property market will still be flooded by cheap properties but instead of from 16 Spanish Banks the properties will be from the Bad Bank.

To take advantage of the large discounts before the deadline of 31st December 2012 please confirm your property criteria and budget and we will send you a shortlist of suitable properties. For more information contact

Murcia New International Airport Update.

It was announced this week that it is likely that the new Corvera International Airport and the existing San Javier airport would both remain open during a transition period whilst the full transfer of flights to Corvera takes place.

It was also announced that as usual there is no date as yet for the new International Airport to open . It is typical Spain that it takes so long for the bureaucrats to makes decisions , with the airport all completed and ready to open we all ask ourselves why the delay.

In todays economic climate you would think that the Murcia Government would be pushing hard to get the International Airport open and increase the number of visitors to the region.
