Reply To: Comparison Greece(Corfu) – Spain



I think the British have fallen out of love with buying property abroad. Maybe just a few for “lifestyle” choice. I wouldn’t buy in a foreign country again even though we have done fairly well out of our purchases. If you don’t visit frequently you can get a couple of luxury holidays each year just for the price of the community fees. Our Florida property is now on a long let and we may possibly sell it. We do still go to Florida (love it) but stay in nice hotels. Everyone I know who has a second home in Spain seems to spend most of their holiday in DIY or supermarkets or repairing the house. I like to be waited on for holidays.

The last time we bought property in Spain was 1998 and I don’t think there has been a good time to buy since then.
