Why Expats Should Not Panic and Rush Back to UK

With the consequences of Brexit still unclear there are some British already packing to go back to the UK in fear that things may turn pear shaped.

First of all we do not actually know what the final outcome will be, things are so unclear and wouldn't you be upset if you upped and moved back only to find you could have actually stayed in your home abroad with no problem?   Plus once you leave, if a good solution is reached, you may not be able to afford to come back and start again.  Would you regret your decision?

Many people who sell their home in Spain and France will find the money they make will not be enough to buy a property in the UK and may leave them with more money troubles than if they just stayed put.

For Spain the British Expats and tourists bring in a lot of money for their country, so it's in their interest to come up with a solution to make it easy for Brits to move freely otherwise they will risk a big drop in their own economy.

Many people worry about not being able to get healthcare, before rushing back why not get some quotes on private healthcare, you may be surprised at how affordable and useful it can be.  Plus if Brexit goes really bad there is a chance the UK will no longer be able to provide free healthcare anymore as they may not be making enough income to support the service.  With the shortage of nurses and doctors, how long would you have to wait to get seen by a doctor?  Would it make a difference in the treatment you receive?

Some have also raised concerns about their pension but as things also are not clear it is best to wait and see exactly what will happen after Brexit.  If you are really worried make sure to keep following the news on this issue to see what the outcome may be for your pension.  Also bear in mind that many products in Britain have gone up in price since Brexit so your pension may not spread as far as it did in the past.

So as you can see there are already a number of things to consider before panicking and making a dash back to the UK.  Even with all this up in the air we still have many Brits escaping and buying property here so why would you up and leave your home when its not even clear what the final outcome will be.  Think about it if every single British expat fled back to the UK then the country would be bursting at the seams with people.  It could not possibly cope with the amount of people so they will have to come up with a solution to suit everyone.  There are still people in hope that Brexit will still not go through.

In our opinion it is best to try and wait it out until there are more clear answers before making any rash decision.  However if you do decide to sell up or on the flip side if you are looking to leave the UK and move to Marbella then contact us to help you sell or buy your property.

Spain Top of The List for Holidays and Living

With all the many problems going on in different parts of the world, Spain continues to be a safe and popular place to vacation and live.

If you thought that Brexit was deterring the Brits as well then you are wrong as Spain has already had 10% more British holiday makers than last year.  Spain makes a huge amount of money from tourism with Andalucia alone already making 6 billion in the first quarter of this year.

Brexit also hasn't made a big dint on buyers either with reports showing that on average there are over 3 million searches for property in Spain every month.

So what is it that keeps drawing people in to this country?  One big reason we touched on earlier, that's the safety, there are many other countries with problems at the moment that people want to know that are in safe hands when they travel to another country.

The next big reason is the weather.  Spain has the best climate in Europe with hot summers and mild winters.  Marbella itself has 320 average sunny days per year, who doesn't like waking up to sun every morning?

Spain has some of the top resort locations in Europe like Marbella, Ibizi, Alicante, Mallorca and the Canary Islands.

Another reason people enjoy Spain so much is the pace of life.  It is much more relaxed and rather than the focus being on work, the focus is on enjoying time with family and friends.

So with that being said if you are looking into buying a property in Marbella then do not hesitate to get in touch and let us help you find the perfect home for you.

Virgen del Carmen Parade 2017

If you are in Marbella this week then Sunday 16th July be sure not to miss the Virgen del Carmen parade.  The Virgen del Carmen is the protector of all fishermen and seamen.  There will be a parade leading to the port when the statue of the Virgen del Carmen will be taken out onto a boat and taken around the harbor.   People will say prayers for all the people at sea to be safe and there are even some that will not swim in the sea until after this day when they feel protected.  

  The procession will start at 6pm on Sunday 16th July from The Casa Hermandad (Street/Calle José Manuel Vallés).  It will make its way down to the beach where there will be wreaths and 7pm they will go from the fisherman's port in Marbella to Puerto Banus.  There will be many boats in the sea with banners and flowers and they will be sounding their horns.  At 9pm they will make their way to take the Virgin del Carmen back to the temple.

Spain´s Golden Visa and Why Pick Marbella

Why Chose Spain for a Golden Visa Scheme.

First of all to qualify for a golden visa you must spend €500,000 on a property without finance.

The main advantage of a golden visa is that you will be able to travel freely through all (26) Schengen countries.   But what else does Spain have to offer that you may not find if you invest in a neighboring country?

Spain and more importantly Marbella is a very safe place to live, many people who visit say how safe they feel.

The health service is very good in Spain even though Spanish are very healthy anyway thanks to the Mediterranean diet, Spanish live longer than any other European country.

Spain´s economy is one of the best in Europe and improving all the time.

If you are looking to bring your family here the educational system is extremely good and has the best international schools, with some being in Marbella like Swans International School.

Traveling to and from Spain is very easy with their international airports and AVE train.  The public transport is very efficient and the roads are kept in good condition.

With your permit you will also be allowed to apply to work in Spain.

The property market in Spain is on the up especially in Marbella where celebrities and wealthy people invest from all over the world.  If you buy now in Marbella you will most likely make a good profit when selling or if you want to make money renting then property´s in Marbella make good money when it comes to renting them out.

If this is something that sounds interesting to you then rest assured that we can help you find a great property in Marbella.  We can also put you in touch with the most experienced and professional lawyers who can help you with applying for your Golden Visa.

So out of all of Spain what are the advantages of buying a property in Marbella?

Marbella is a long established destination for rich, celebrities and royal families who wish to enjoy the security and the luxury facilities.

The climate offers on average 320 sunny days a year with a mild winter and a not too hot summer.   There is not a lot of rainfall and people refer to the area as the California of Europe.

With the high class celebrities and wealthy businessmen there is the luxury port of Puerto Banus which docks some of the most expensive yachts in the world.  People often walk down the road next to the port just to catch a glimpse at these spectacular boats and of course the luxury cars that cruise past as well.

You can enjoy dining in one of the luxury restaurants like Dani Garcia or spend the day in one of the beach clubs like Nikki Beach or Ocean Club.  Or if sport is your thing then enjoy one of the many top golf courses in the area such as Marbella Golf Club in Benahavis.

As stated above Marbella is home to the best international schools and has really good health services.  It is a safe place to make investments with many people leaving their properties empty for many months of the year and returning to no problems what-so-ever.

Malaga is only a 30 minute drive away where you can catch many international flights from the airport making it very easy to travel to and from Marbella.

Easter Stuck in Marbella

Wouldn´t it be nice to get stuck in Marbella for a couple of extra days over Easter.

This Easter the traffic has been bad all over Spain with people stranded in airports and train stations, some people will be stuck until tomorrow (Tuesday).  Perhaps some people obviously knew Easter would be busy and didn´t pre-book a ticket home knowing they may get stranded and have a couple of extra days off work and a couple of extra days holiday.  You just have to find somewhere to stay.

Maybe you could spend an extra couple of days looking for property to make an investment in Marbella.  With prices on the rise and many new projects bringing even more people here, now is a great time to get a good deal before the prices increase even more.  Many of the chiringuito´s on the beach are getting a full renovation and some have new owners.  Including the one in front of our office which was bought by La Sala,  it is getting totally re-done and hopefully they will be ready for the summer season.  Then you have the luxury W hotel to be built and completed by 2021.

In the luxury Puente Romano in the Golden Mile they are opening Nobu hotel and restaurant.  The restaurant will open next month and the hotel will open Spring next year.

We also have many things selling off plan, something that people were scared off once the property crash set in in case they lost money on projects not being finished.

So with Marbella already being a luxury area attracting people from all over the world, all these projects will only attract more and push the prices even higher.  If you have a limited budget then perhaps now is the time to act before it is too late.  Life is short, enjoy it while you can.

If you want to know what we have available then contact us stating your budget, how many bedrooms and what views, facilities etc you prefer.

Have a great week everyone and don´t miss out on this:
