The simplest advise investing in property in Spain would be to wait and hold onto your money for 3-5 years. Then buy.
I don’t intend to “teach” anyone anything MG. I’m not obsessed with banks, it’s just that I happen to be a real estate lawyer and I happen to know that prices are going down no matter what the media hype or the government’s statistics say. I see it every day, it’s no big secret.
Investing now in -spanish- property is foolish. That’s why I write of banks and other investments.
I don’t know the UK property market so I won’t give my opinion on matters that I don’t know.
Anyway, my initial post was intended for Steven, nor for you. Don’t take it as something personal. In fact, I hadn’t even read your post below his.
