Reply To: Expats thinking of returning home


Many people dream of a retirement to the sun, which is why many people have moved to Spain. But I’ve thought for a long time that most should rent instead of buying. You get the same experience with less of the costs and risks. When the time comes, you just give the landlord a bit of warning and pack your bags. A lot of elderly people are now trapped here; they’ve got all their equity in a Spanish property and can’t sell. They wouldn’t be in that position if they had rented. It is a sad situation.
