What Brings People to Valencia?
 
This month we have a bumper edition of the podcast with a discussion about what brought us to Valencia, what brings clients to Valencia and what people appreciate about the city and the region compared to wherever they lived before. There's so much to appreciate here of course, I once wrote an article of 112 reasons to move here of course, but it's interesting to hear what brought people here because not everyone has the same story.

"Bye Bye Brits- Incompetence and Inflation".
 
Welcome to the fourth episode of our second series of the Valencia Property podcast. Lots has been going on in our first month back after the summer break so to bring you up to date with everything of course we bring you the podcast. We have a look at each post from the last month in turn but also we have two main parts to the podcast this week, firstly about the effects of the incompetents running the UK in a section we call "Bye Bye Brits" and then a look at how inflation is working in supermarkets and day to day costs in Spain.
 
Our recommendations this week are for the property of the week, videos of the week and articles of the week.
 
The property of the week is the full house in the Cabanyal which you can see here. Make sure to get the full internal view by watching the video in the listing. 
 
The video this week, well we have two actually. One we took in the newly modernised Plaza de la Reina in central Valencia. The square has a totally different feel now there is no traffic. You can see it here.
 
And the second is a Valencia travel guide from the Attache channel on YT where the channel owner fell in love with the city https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iIlyWK3yT4o
 
The article of the week, well actually, it's all of our recent articles. You can see the link here. The latest six articles have all been written since the summer hiatus.
 
And now its time for another hiatus, this time until the next podcast next month. Meanwhile keep popping back onto the blog where there will be weekly posts, onto the property pages where we update daily and follow me on twitter @grahunt to see me swearing, abusing politicians and sharing lovely Valencia content for you.

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?

The Bonus Ball

Friday May 20, 2022

Friday May 20, 2022

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.

Welcome to the 19th and penultimate episode of our first series of Valencia Property podcasts. The last one next week will not be the last of course, it will just be the last of the weekly series before we go monthly. In the monthly series we are looking to go deeper into some subjects with more news, client questions and interviews as well as more interviews, round table discussions, lifestyle features and more. 
 
Today though we are talking about some of the things that we love and hate about living in Valencia and Spain and also having an interview with Nicola about what attracted her to Valencia and the process she had to take from buying here to the point when she and her husband were able to come and live here. 
 
As usual we finish off the podcast with our recommendations for the week.
