MovingHouse Hunting In Spain – Crisis What Crisis?

November 6, 2018by was73100

If you believe only what you read in the press then you won’t be looking to step out of your house at the moment, never mind think of traveling abroad … and as if the credit crisis wasn’t enough, now we are also faced by near parity between the pound and the euro. Yet if you are prepared to look below the surface I think you will see things look much more interesting … especially here on the Costa Blanca in Spain. In fact I would go further and say that all of the reasons why Spain has been the most attractive destination for both holidays and second homes for us Brits remain valid … and some may have got better!


When the oil price was spiraling out of control last year there were serious fears that we might be seeing the end of cheap flights.

Eating out has always been one of the big attractions in Spain. True, prices have risen since the arrival of the Euro, but you really don’t have to look hard to find great value, with many of the better restaurants now offering inventive and high quality “menu del dias” with dishes selected off the a la carte menu to attract in the clientele. And I don’t need to add the wine remains as tasty and cheap as ever!


Yet Spain has become more than just an occasional holiday destination. Changes in the buying process over the years, the higher priority given to leisure time and most notably the increasing interest in second homes have all contributed to the…
