Bullish Prospects For New Spanish Property Market.
Ignacio de la Torre, a partner at financial advisors Arcano, who correctly called the bottom of the market for Spanish financial assets in 2012, gives ten reasons to be bullish about the new development business in Spain.
- House prices are rising.
- Land prices are rising.
- Housing is more affordable.
- Mortgage lending is rising.
- Home sales are rising.
- Unemployment is falling.
- New home inventory is shrinking.
- Population is rising not falling.
- Consumer confidence is rising.
- Exchange rate more favourable.
How To Avoid Buying An Ilegal Spanish Property.
Unfortunately there is still a concern about buying a spanish property especially when the media portray all the horror stories of british buyers buying property that has been built illegally.
It is very important therefore to engage the services of a reputable spanish lawyer who will then check all the paperwork to ensure that the property has all the relevant licences.
I would also recommend that if you are considering purchasing a rural property that you should apply for a spanish mortgage.
The bank will then do all the checks to ensure that the property is legal and and if they are not willing to give a mortgage do not proceed with the purchase.
If the bank are willing to give a mortage you do not necessarily need to take out the mortgage but at least you know that the property is legal.

Voted for by the public and announced at a glittering ceremony in Portugal’s Algarve, this prestigious award ceremony is committed to supporting, promoting and developing the global golf tourism industry by identifying and rewarding excellence in class.
The ‘Best Course in Spain’ category’s core criteria is to highlight the course that delivers at the very highest level across a wide range of areas, from quality of layout and pristine course conditioning to outstanding front of house experience and service.
It was Las Colinas’ ability to provide such a first-class offering across the board, all-year round, that saw the vote swing their way in the end.

Top Five Tips On How To Sell A Property.
Less is best, dump or remove items that make the property look smaller or untidy.
Remove all animals for viewings not everyone is into snakes, dogs or cats.
Fresh lick of paint makes the property look cared for and first impressions count.
Tidy up the garden and cut lawn for viewings, most buyers of holiday homes want low maintenance.
Finally never give exclusive rights to one Estate Agent to sell your property,you should have 2 -3 top Estate Agents marketing the property. Why reduce the chances of getting a buyer by only having one Agent trying to sell your property.

Spanish Property Viewing Trips And How It Can Help You Make The Property Buying Decision Easier.
All our clients will make initial contact through the internet,telephone or through a recommendation.
At this stage it is purely to gain more information about the different property options and the buying process. This is what I call the "Information Grabbing Period" . The more information that you take on board will then enable you to be more confident in purchasing a property in Spain.
The next step is likely to be a viewing trip and this is by far the most informative trip that you can make. This is when you will see exactly what each local area has to offer and this will then enable you to narrow down your search.
The location is the most important aspect when buying a property and it is the same throughout the world.
Once you have decided on what area meets your criteria the best it will make the Estate Agents job easier finding you a property that meets your budget and wish list.

Another Happy Chersun Client
Brian Pearson ,Perth, Scotland
From beginning to end - this is customer service and professionalism at its very best! My wife Gwyneth and I contacted Paul with details of budget, preferred requirements and location. Paul provided airport transfers with top class accommodation and breakfast also included. He took us around not just to view the properties but also to show us the area, shops and beaches (often pointing out restaurants with excellent reputations).
We were shown different types of properties in different areas and localities, both new developments and resales - Paul had established exactly what we were looking for and delivered a great range to choose from. It was also a very pleasurable experience - Paul is a very easy going person with great banter and humour - we were totally relaxed and thoroughly enjoyed his company from start to finish.
Paul also organised the lawyer and foreign exchange company which was great added value and made the overall process very seamless and without stress. We plumped for a new development on day 3 and cant commend Paul enough for taking onboard our requirements and finding a perfect home for us.
For anyone thinking of purchasing in this area of Spain look no further than Paul and Chersun Properties for a fantastic and totally professional service.
