In the last few months there has only been good news about the Spanish Property Market. Primelocation last week reported that year on year searches for Spain had risen by 147% making it the number one choice for property markets. To continue with the good news, The National Institute for Statistics in Spain recently reported a 26% increase year on year for property sales which further supports the theory.

It has been a tremondous start this year to the Autumn Exhibition Seasson. So far we have had Exhibitions in the UK, Holland, Belgium, Sweden, Russia and Germany with a lot of success at each.
It is also interesting to see that Spain is by far the most popular country once again with over 90% of all leads gathered at the fair wanting Spain. It seems the ease of travel, the lower prices and the strengthening currencies are all contributing to the return of the Spanish markets.
Below are some of the photos of the latest exhibitions for your perusal. Please click on the “i” on the centre of the image if you want any more information about the picture

I was lucky enough to recently attend an exhbition in Polands 2nd largest city, Lodz. Very interesting and quite eye opening I have to say. It was predominantly an exhibition promoting Lodz and there was a surprising amount of choice it has to be said. However, my agents felt it was worth the risk to show some overseas property there as well. After all prices in Spain and Turkey are now far lower than buying a property in Poland. Where would you rather be? Read the rest of this entry »

Back in May 2009 I was asked to do some filming for the US TV program House Hunters
International. It was a great experience being out there with some of our clients who thankfully bought a property. Really interesting to see how it all works though and how it all gets stitched together.
We have split it into three sections so that YouTube could facilitate it all. Read the rest of this entry »

I am sitting in Schipol airport as I write this piece as my flight has just been delayed which sadly is not the first time I have had this experience from here! Anyway, it does allow me to reflect on my experience today with the Real Estate Agent, Witte Wonigen Makleers http://www.wittewoningmakelaars.nl/
It was their annual conference and all the franchise offices around Holland came near the town of Almelo in the East of Holland (about 2 hours drive from Schipol) to discuss the market. It seems that the Dutch market has been having similar difficulties to most of its European neighbours in the last 18 months but, as with many countries, are confident about the future.

Hello everyone and welcome to a new week. On the “Box Net” application to the left of your screen you will find my first “Review of the Weekend Papers”. I hope that you will find this useful as this is mainly going to be distributed for all of my sales people across the world to keep up to date with the latest news. Maybe it will also be useful for you as well.
I am going to try to keep it to just 10 minutes long each week but I may pass comment on some of the articles that I have read and go on my own experience so you will have to excuse me if i go on a little bit longer but I will definately not be speaking for more than 15 minutes because I respect you are all busy people.
Feel free to comment on anything that you would like me to change or expand on.
Best wishes all and hope you have a good week.

We are fortunate to be working in one of the most fascinating industries in the world, in my humble opinion of course, but it is also a complex and challenging one as well.
One of the challenges in recent years for Residential Real Estate, both Overseas or Domestic UK, has been to communicate our message through to the client. Real Estate agents have always had a bad name for communication and so this is where hopefully technology can come in and help. Read the rest of this entry »
