Welcome to the latest episode of the Valencia Property podcast. Today on number 14 we will be looking at mortgages on your Valencia Property and why more and more people are getting them. But before we get into that we have as usual a few questions and a bit of news from the Valencia Property market. 
The main part of the episode today talks about mortgages and includes an interview with Kevin Monger co-founder of Mortgage Direct who work here in Valencia. You can contact Mortgage Direct here.

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

This week's podcast is number nine in our series and talks about the Paradox of Choice and what having a restricted number of options means for your Valencia Property purchase. 
 
As usual we start with an introduction, the latest news from Valencia, followed by our listener questions, our article about the Paradox of Choice and we finish off with our recommendations. 
 
However we also have two other sections this week. We have an interview with James Blick from Spain Revealed about his new project helping people to move to Spain and we also have a little insert about our ongoing competition and our survey from last week. You can participate in our survey here

The recommended video this week is one of James' of course and I couldn't let this go by without recommending a recent video James made with his friend Phil Kitromiledes who, let's just say, has a restricted palate https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C-UC36PaT5Q . James took him on a wild tapas tour of offal and bits of animals that many people just won't touch. It's lots of fun.
 
Also take a look at the videos where James talks about moving to Spain and how you can help define what you are looking for when you move to Spain. Obviously we hope you decide that that place in Spain is Valencia. You can see the playlist here

The seventh episode of the Valencia Property Podcast talks about what is happening in the market currently but first details of our competition. You'll need to listen to the podcast to hear the questions but here are the details of what you need to do. 
1) Leave us a review on Apple Podcasts. You can see the link here. https://valencia-property.com/new/ApplePodcasts 
(Equally if you prefer to listen to your podcasts on Spotify, Podbean or others you could leave us another review there too just to be nice ;-))
 
2) Share the podcast on your favourite social media and screenshot the post or posts if you really want to get more brownie points (You might even want to tag us on Twitter @grahunt, Facebook (Valencia Property) and Instagram @grahunt if you are that way inclined).
 
3) Answer the 4 questions that follow, they should be easy with a little Googling or knowledge about the city
 
The four questions are...
No, you'll have to listen to the podcast to hear them
 
4) Once done then send us a mail to information@valencia-property.com with the screenshots and the name you used on the Apple Podcast Review along with your four answers. On the podcast in 3 weeks time we will have a draw for the winner and if your name is announced we will contact you to get details to send you your prize. We will send the books anywhere in the World but would prefer to present them in person of course if you are around. 
 
OK, if you have any questions then just tag me on Twitter @grahunt. The competition will be announced on our socials too. 
 
So much good feedback from last week's longer episode but today won't be as long as there is no interview. However we have divided the pod into various areas. We'll start with news and an explanation of taxes on purchase, (the tldr on this is that it's a bit more complicated than it was before but not necessarily more expensive.)
 
Then we go onto a bit more news from Valencia which is currently in the hangover from the Goya awards which were presented last week at the City of Arts and Sciences (The Goya awards for those who don't know are the Spanish cinema Oscars).
 
After the news we have our competition to win some really cool books about Valencia. 
 
The main part of the pod this week is about who is buying, who is selling and what is happening with supply and prices in the Valencia property market.
 
As usual we will then follow up with some listener questions. Don't forget to submit yours via voice note to our Whatsapp on 0034 657994311 with your name or send me a voice memo to information@valencia-property.com 
 
Finally we have our recommendations this week. A recommended video, article and property as usual. Hope you enjoy itRecommended Video

Welcome to the sixth podcast in our series about buying property in Valencia.
 
Today we are going to be looking at the story of our company, why we do what we do and how we do it because we do things in a different way.
 
We have a look at some of the events happening in Valencia this month and what football you can watch here. 
 
We will be having a discussion about the all important descriptions we put out into the world and looking at the tech we use every day.
 
We will also be answering more of your questions, just a couple today as one of them is a longer answer and with the discussion about descriptions we didn't want to take up too much of your time.
 
Remember to stay to the end though as the last few minutes are a bit of a bonus. Listen then sign up for our whatsapp broadcast list to get the rest of that discussion.

The article this week is the one I wrote on Monday which featured on the blog. All about what you don't see when looking at properties online before your visit. You get the views, although they might not be from the apartment itself, you get great looking kitchens and bathrooms, but they may not exist, and you get CGI renders which of course don't exist, you don't get the grubby bits, the damp bits or the dark bits, you don't get the smells and you don't get the reality.
