The latest Valencia Property Podcast talks about the rental crisis in Valencia and gives an update on the situation after our post in October. We also talk about our new project "Stepping Stone Rentals and how this will affect your ability to land in Valencia with security, safety and a place to stay while you look for your long term rental or purchase. We also have an interview with our rental specialist Jessica all about the changes in the rental market over the last twenty years in Valencia and a continuation of our "What's it like to be a realtor in Valencia?" series. 
In terms of what we talk about on the podcast the links below will take you to the referred to articles.  
My favourite article was the one showing our renovations in Valencia and the before and after of them. It's so satisfying to get to the end of a project and show it off so we thought we'd do a few. https://valencia-property.com/new/2023/05/15/renovating-properties-in-valencia/
My favourite video was again James Blick who this month talked about what it was like being a veteran immigrant into Spain. What happens when you get past the honeymoon stage? Is it still worth living in Spain. Take a look at the good the bad and the ugly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RMnUubH2X3o 
And my favourite property... oof so many to choose from this month as I said in the article about the eclectic or diverse nature of the Valencia Property market but I think my favourite was and is the house overlooking Cullera bay you can see at the link in the show notes. For under 300k you get great views, the seaside, outside space, lots of inside space, light and a feeling of freedom, you even get a lift opening out into your living room directly from the garage. It's superb. https://www.valencia-property.com/cullera/blue-skys-and-sea-views-2052.php

There is an interview with David and Paul about their working days and also I tell you what it is that I do (Graham here) day to day in running the company (And producing this podcast, blogs, descriptions and more)

Property of the month
 
Is the House of the Rising Sun in Olocau. It's also probably my favourite description of the month because I decided to use the song  as a background to it. Take a look

Welcome back to the Valencia Property podcast
 
This month we are looking at visa options for coming to live in Spain and announcing a new service from Valencia Property to help those looking at the lower end of the market. Intially titled the VP Sherlock Service but that isn't catchy enough, we are launching it this week. 
 
We hope you enjoy the podcast and if you have any questions then feel free to contact us on information@valencia-property.com or scoot through our blog and find the whatsapp button to contact Graham.
 
We have a lot of links mentioned in the podcast this month and also our recommendations for this month are as follows:
 
Property
https://www.valencia-property.com/valencia-beach-area/sea-view-apartment-2015.php Sea view apartment overlooking the marina in Valencia. Not for the pigeons this one apparently but excellent views and as good as it gets for sea views in Valencia city.
 
Video
 
James Blick visited Valencia last month and went on an epic food tour including three huge late breakfasts in three different places on the same morning. Click on the link in the show notes for half an hour of Valencia food goodness. James' Epic Valencia food tour is well worth a watch and then just follow along and visit the places yourself https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gSFLNjUjoB4

Welcome back to the monthly podcast and this one is going to be a longer one, we know people like it when we get deep into the weeds with explaining how things work here, that's sort of counter intuitive but it's true, the deper the dive the better the reactions to the pod and the greater the number of downloads.
 
On this one we are looking back at the first month of 2023, what's been happening, what have we been doing and what's going on in the background and we will be looking into the rationales behind the website.

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. 
 
The links to things mentioned in the podcast are below. Our recommended articles, videos and properties. 
 
Articles
 
The Most Popular Content on the VP Website
 
The Best Neighbourhoods in Valencia
