Re: May be moving to Houston - Few Questions

The OP should probably also consider that he is already just below the top 5% of earners in the whole UK and 75K is a massive salary. Depending on spending habits, location and house prices he might...

Re: Hi, from NZ hopefuls with a bit of Spain

I must admit that although we are only 25 mins drive from Girona, we never really go to the city. I was looking at ferries to Bilbao in October but unfortunately it's still only the economy ferry, so...

Re: Hi, from NZ hopefuls with a bit of Spain

I'd agree with brits1 and if you want to try first, Europe/Spain seems like the wiser choice. First of all you already save on travel costs and would get more for you money in terms of renting and...

Re: Why we left New Zealand

I agree and only commenting on "do you think Oz is much better hands down on everything vs NZ" . Not everyone who lives in Australia is wealthier and not everyone who lives in NZ is poor and...

Re: Introduction Thread (Somewhere to say Hi)

One word of warning and while you might have renovated properties in Ireland, it's a complete different level in France, Spain etc. I'm in the Rep. of Ireland myself and also renovated a property,...

Re: Buying in Montefrio help

Only you can answer if it is too far away from the coast and there will also be many people who aren't bothered with beaches. I don't mind being a bit inland (couldn't afford a house near beach) and...

Re: Buying in Montefrio help

I think I have searched the whole of Spain and still often look on idealista what type of properties are available. I suppose bargain is a big word and buying a holiday home can often be more...

Re: Buying in Montefrio help

Never been there, I'd agree with others though and looking at area and weather satellite, it will be very dry and hot in summer and can get cold in winter. Of course it's always personal choice but...

Re: Hungarian Property Price increases

Yeah, sheep and a ride on required:-). The other problem with such a huge garden is that it takes ages to establish if just a field from scratch. Sure, if you have so much money to buy larger trees...

Re: Hungarian Property Price increases

And those 1 euro houses in Italy often don't have any garden and are in the middle of an old town, so not much different to an apartment. https://www.case1euro.it/properties/serradifalco-9/

Re: Hungarian Property Price increases

This house is around 10 km's from where I live and has been in construction since 2007. I've always passed and just looked up planning file and the house apparently has 1538 m2. This is street view...

Re: Hungarian Property Price increases

You are probably right with the garden and we always want more than we have, but sometimes you need to be sensible. I couldn't live in an apartment anymore and I get that people want more space, a...

Re: Hungarian Property Price increases

I don't get the obsession with oversized houses. In Ireland we have a relatively small house 140m2 on a 3000m2 plot, but even that is a lot of work and the larger the house the more costs you have +...

Re: May be moving to Houston - Few Questions

To be honest, it doesn't sound that extreme. I have no idea about Houston but better safe than sorry. It would be the same for me in Ireland and I would probably need 3 x my salary if I were to move...

Re: Anyone still feel like an outsider?

It really depends how people spend and everyone is complaining about price hikes, be it Spain, Germany and Ireland where I am. Here I paid €2.12 for a litre petrol yesterday, but ironically we had...

Re: Benahavis wild fire

Can only agree with others here and it's something you need to be aware of. I would never buy a property that is at the edge of a forest or bushland. You just need one idiot and the whole area is in...

Re: Driving Advice - London to Narbonne

And with 4 kids probably not as easy. Maybe better to just add a small holiday on the way and have a 2 night break at a campsite that has an adventure park or waterpark.

Re: Driving Advice - London to Narbonne

I hate flying these days so usually always drive from Ireland past Narbonne to Spain. Normally leave from Cherbourg and take the A20 route with a stop overnight somewhere on the way (just easier). I...

Good points with the licences and although I'm not a full time resident in Spain, I now certainly know why so many of my Spanish friends complain.

Re: beat the heat in El Campello

The good news is that it's nearly over and cooler temps on the way. In Seville it's dropping below 40c again and might only reach 35c by next week.

To be fair, this can happen in any country and sometimes you need a bit of luck when you reach a certain age. I've seen people move to the UK who say the same and even here in Ireland I've seen...
