One look at the property market in Spain

It ‘s been a while since we’ve discussed developments in the housing market in the Marina Baixa . We therefore contacted one of our advertisers , Ragnhild Stenbo in SOLALBIR for any comments.

SOLALBIR is otherwise fairly fresh , though Ragnhild has extensive experience from several brokers before. Since the company started in October 2011 , they have now established a separate portfolio of more than 400 properties. She describes the development as ” very good ” . Current speed is great, and she talks about getting younger Norwegian homebuyers , often families who try stayed here a year or two earlier , only to have traveled back to Norway . There, they discover the difference , sell what they have in Norway and move here permanently.

Need a rental car? Best prices guaranteed

The current speed accuracy due course that it is now ” buyer’s market ” and that one can make a bargain and a safe investment right now , when prices have fallen so much , she says.

As it is, it is almost the only Norwegians who buy property in Albir, but Stenbo think other nationalities from northern Europe will flock to the Spanish coast in the future, when prices have fallen so much. Those who have settled here , are also excellent ambassadors for recommending several of his friends to leave the winter country , at least by investing in a rental . A small dark cloud in the sky may be the growing Norwegian housing bubble. Recent reduction of Norwegian interest rates, will be able to shoot a new impetus to this , which will eventually have to burst.

But right now it’s a fantastic opportunity for those selling their home in Norway at the upper end of the price scale, while they can buy houses in Spain on the lower part of the same scale .

We know that it is not as easy to get loans from Spanish banks anymore, because many of them are struggling to meet my gracious equity requirements . Stenbo says that those who buy a holiday home here usually has a property in Norway that they can leverage to finance the purchase of a property in Spain . But they are selling their home in Norway , and settles permanently here often take loans in Spain , and then we recommend that they go to the Danish bank Nykredit , which has an office here in Albir, which admittedly only gives loans to those are holders of a Scandinavian passport. They usually provides loans with a 30 year repayment period , a 10 -year interest-only , and up to 80 % in funding. Otherwise , as we cooperate with Spanish banks that can offer up to 70 % financing , she said.
