Hello and welcome back to the Valencia property podcast. As you might know if you followed our first series we are going monthly now as opposed to weekly as the main issues we wanted to cover we have covered, we will keep referring back to them in the rest of the episodes and let you know episode numbers where applicable.   Our plan now is a monthly podcast done in a slightly different way with more interviews, more market information and a whole lot more concentration on what we have listed and written in the previous month along with even more concentration on our listener questions. We would like to thank all of those people who sent in questions and remember that if you have a question then it's more than likely that others have had the same question so it's useful to others to have you ask it. Remember you can send us a voice note, a written question or even a short video from which we will take the audio file for the podcast. It's always useful for us.    The main part of this pod is myself, Gavin and David answering your FAQs about Valencia Property when out and about. What do you think are the most typical questions?    Interview with Sheila on the All About You Podcast https://valencia-property.com/new/aay   Recommended Articles https://valencia-property.com/new/2022/05/30/what-makes-leliana-so-popular/ https://valencia-property.com/new/2022/06/06/utility-costs-on-your-valencia-property/ https://valencia-property.com/new/2022/06/13/why-you-cannot-see-properties-at-the-weekend/ https://valencia-property.com/new/2022/06/20/the-ten-most-common-questions-about-valencia-property/   Recommended Properties L'Eliana villa for some quality family time ;-) https://www.valencia-property.com/la-eliana/villa-for-some-quality-family-time-1880.php Transatlantic Investment Apartment in Valencia https://www.valencia-property.com/valencia-city/transatlantic-apartment-1879.php  Avocadoes, Oranges and Felicity Kendall https://www.valencia-property.com/torres-torres/avocados,-oranges-and-the-self-sufficiency-dream-1878.php A Garden of Delights and 1001 Nights https://www.valencia-property.com/turis/a-garden-of-delights-and-a-1001-nights-1877.php Death and Descriptions in the Afternoon https://www.valencia-property.com/la-pobla-de-vallbona/death-and-descriptions-in-the-afternoon-1876.php    Recommended Video 70000 Capacity and a Solar Roof.

Welcome to the final episode of the first series of the Valencia Property Podcast but don't worry we are not going away, we are just going to a new schedule. So today we are going to look back at what we have done so far on the podcast tell you where to find those episodes, look at what the podcast has done for us as a company and look at the properties we have sold this year, in terms of prices, availability, nationalities buying and a whole lot more. We are also looking at how we have worked to find that special property for our clients and how the bonus ball is often the one that wins the prize. What is the bonus ball and why does the bonus ball often get chosen. We will look at issues in the market at the moment and also we have a bumper crop of questions from listeners for you to enjoy me trying to answer.   Our recommendations for this week are as follows: Firstly our recommended video of Richard Ayoade and Sara Pascoe getting hammered in Valencia . The scene in La Bella de Cadiz starts around 1.50 in. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A3svwwVMNHQ    Our recommended articles this week are the following Spanish schools https://www.languageinternational.com/spanish-schools-valencia-23649 112 Reasons to Move to Valencia https://valencia-property.com/new/2017/06/10/112-reasons-to-move-to-valencia-the-best-lifestyle-design-for-you/  How to choose your lawyer. https://valencia-property.com/new/2019/11/18/choosing-a-lawyer-for-your-valencia-property-purchase/   And our recommended property... so many to choose this week. I think our listings have been excellent this week but just for something a bit different I'll go for the villa with an inside outside pool in Puig. Take a look at the link in the show notes. https://valencia-property.com/new/Puig I could have gone for the "Better Than Grimsby" villa or the Just Outside Requena with 161 Neighbours Townhouse or any number of others but you will see when you get to the homepage there are plenty of live candidates for txhis week's listing    As for our recommended podcast well you should listen to all of our episodes which you can find on our podbean page https://valenciaproperty.podbean.com/    But of those mentioned, God Bless America is the second one, Lawyers is edpisode ten, The Paradox of Choice is number nine, our story is number six, visas is number five, and the infamous Brexit episode is number four. The most popular episode is the one about timelines and that's right back at the start episode one. They are all worth a listen in my humble opinion and the questions you have might well be answered in one of them. Make sure to listen to them all and then pop over your questions to us in the form of a voice note or written and we will get back to you next month.    Remember you can contact us on information@valencia-property.com or whatsapp on 0034 657994311 for your voice notes.

You can contact Mortgage Direct here.    Recommended Video   There are lots of things I disagree with in this video but it's always good to take a look at what others are saying (Even when they are wrong or i believe they are wrong) Take a look at Ronin's video which has a few factual inaccuracies but is a decent overview about why you might want to retire to Valencia. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8524CfksFI    Recommended Article Mortgages.
