This is my list of Spanish property sites I check from time to time, perhaps other forum users have sites they can share for the group.
Maybe we can identify some good sites in different regions, towns, etc..
Worth sharing, I doubt anyone is going to gazump you in this market 🙂

I’m doing a re-vamp of mine. Our Russian one looks better than the current one. Can I put it forward or Spanish builders are not open to this list, just real estate agents and property listings?

If it passes my due diligence, i.e. I find it useful, its not a scrape of one of the above sites, the properties are not priced at 2007 ranges and its a nationwide site, then it should be on the list.
Or you can send me a bribe and i’ll instantly list it at the top in flashing pink fonts with “recommended” in brackets.

Find this one quite good.
Prices for the area’s I know are a long way out o date and hence massively overpriced. For instance, 2 bed town house http://primespanishproperty.com/?p=2157 at 550k. I think they can forget selling at that price for the next 10 years. Maybe if they were actively updating prices, but I see agents at a serious disadvantage when you consider the sites ive listed above.

Yesterday I was amazed to find on this site (can’t find it now) a 4 bedroom/2 bathroom ‘villa’ …… 82sq metres!!
I had a struggle fitting a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom house with a layout we like into 150sq metres!

In the business we call that “cozy”: beware of the double entendres of Real Estate!

marjal – I think your website, with details shown clearly of everything you use in the build, is absolutely brilliant. One of the best websites I’ve seen from a builder, and I’ve looked at countless over the years.
This type of modern design is becoming very popular here in Greece, though the eco part is very slow in taking hold here. Thermal solar has been the norm on almost every house for years now for the hot water, even for the little old ‘fisherman cottages’ but for some reason solar photovoltaic is almost non-existent which is daft with all the sunshine we have.
One question: Where you build a special ‘indent’ in the roof for the thermal solar panel, what means is there to rid any rainwater that would collect in there? It’s the first time I’ve seen this, here in Greece they just plonk the panel on top of the tiles.

Actually, the acumlator (tank) is under the solar panel, which actually is what we call a “solar captor”, hot water is heated directly by the Sun not by electricity generated.
The area beneath it is not flat and is waterproofed so rainwater goes back on to the roof. It is just a way of hiding the tank, making a sloped roof more aethetically appealing.
In the more modern design the tank is inside the property (insulation is much greater and although installation is more expensive, in the end it works out more cost efficient).
The newer properties are being installed with photovoltaic but there is also problems about the energy storage systems.

We can build you a tower if you want LOL!!
All properties are made to measure. We have 3 basic categories: Mediterranean (towers, arches and balaustrades), Traditional (More rustic, mostly built in more rural settings, but on urban 500m2 plots); and Modern (straight lines, more minimalist approach).
I don’t think we have 2 houses the same.

Can’t find the size of that 4 bed though.

It’s a San Jose villa, can’t remember what they were called…but they were definitely bigger than 84m2
