We are getting a lot of enquiries recently from clients wanting homes that will allow their extended family to live there comfortably, dual family homes. The ideal in this scenario is a two level house with the two floors being independent of each other, but we are also being asked for two properties on one plot and two apartments next to each other or even larger apartments that have been merged into one. As Valencia Property finders this gets us looking as we think this is becoming a trend
We are getting plenty of people looking to buy property in Valencia in order to get their Spanish Golden Visa. For those that don't know what the Spanish Golden Visa involves it requires an investment of 500k in property in Spain without a mortgage in order to be granted a visa that allows you to move freely through Spain and the other Schengen countries without the requirement to actually live in Spain for more than six months of the year, a requirement of the usual Spanish residency visa. You investment can be on one property or a portfolio of properties to make up the 500k minimum.
We sent a mail out to our subscribers asking them what questions they would ask about buying Valencia Property and life in Valencia. We got some great questions back. So I made a video answering some of those questions and also showing you what we don't spend all our day doing in Valencia and Spain. Take a look.
The Spanish Golden Visa for non EU citizens has brought many people into Spain from all parts of the World to enjoy free movement around the Schengen area, security for their families and an excellent quality of life in a safe and accommodating country. All around Spain people have been buying up places to live so they can enjoy the rights that a Golden Visa gives them. We have sold many properties to clients as part of a portfolio so they can get the Golden Visa but it is much more common for clients to buy a single property over the threshold of 500k and use that as their base for exploring the rest of Europe
Summer is well and truly here, it's 30 degrees in my kitchen at the moment and I have just put the air conditioning on in the living room while writing this. Summer has the usual balmy evenings, meeting outside with friends and strolling along the acres of empty beaches, if you choose the right beach to a beach bar to enjoy a cooling drink.
Finally, what has been an open secret for a while seems to have been confirmed by the UK government. After the end of this year new arrivals into Spain will not be covered by a reciprocal agreement for healthcare.
