I'm born in Norway, but my heart has found it's home in both Spain and the USA. As long as I have the people I love around me I could probably be happy almost anywhere. I love all the sweet things in life: to travel, to eat well, to spend time with friends and family, to shop (sometimes only through windows) and to create beauty around me. I'm a talker, but also enjoy quiet hours spent alone with a book. I laugh often and loud. And I'm drawn towards anything that sparkles! My friends tease me about that... More than anything I want my life to be meaningful - whatever that entails...
I'm spending my summer here in Spain and thought I would give you a peek into the Spanish real estate market. Most investors claim that Spain is an excellent real estate investment opportunity right now. Spain is one of the countries in Europe that has been the hardest affected by the international financial crisis and prices have, in some areas, been reduced by almost 50%.
Because of the wonderful beaches, the comfortable climate and the accessibility from northern Europe there is a strong optimism that Spain will bounce back and again become one of the forerunners in the European holiday market.
For the fun of it I have chosen to showcase two very different properties on the Costa del Sol (South coast) at each end of the price range. This is an example of what your money can buy. There are thousands of homes for sale here right now and if you want to see more properties go to www.vivaestates.com
