  1. obviously property construction has fallen, for the simple reason that there is a record number of vacant properties unsold. Sounds like the usual hype published by companies in the property business. For what you get, I dont think prices are low in Spain; they were just ridiculously overpriced before the crash.

  2. all the off plan cons sounded very good and plausable
    even had showhomes with great CGI pictures of what the completed development would look like

    The sales people were generally very presentable and convincing
    and you did all your Homework and used reputable Lawyers and notaries there were Bank Guarantees in place

    What could possibly go wrong with your planned dream in the Sun
    Well we all know

    Whatever spin they put on the Spanish Property situation
    Spain has made no effort to sort out planning or illegal build problems / nor has the EU and Spanish property is just not a good investment

  3. Yet more dangerous talk and hype from another estate agent working in a totally unregulated property market.

    There is no ‘current property boom’ as the article says, the market has picked up from a very low base but only in good areas on the coast, and, not from Brits who still have a poor exchange rate compared to the ‘boom’ days. Transaction costs are exorbitant, VAT on new homes is planned to increase again from 4-10%, still far too many illegal builds, and a huge glut of unsold property that will take years to absorb before the next batch makes another glut.

    Buyers Beware!!!

  4. “Property experts insist that now is the time to take advantage of the buyers’ market and get your hands on cheap land and housing”. Don’t you just love “experts” What a load of rubbish!
