Just happen to be here at the mo, I will be in my home in Spain in April

Like I said, I buy property and move about if it takes my fancy that is.

One swallow doesn't make a summer, but here's an example of the right property in the right place selling quickly

I suspect it's a lot harder for most though

I think we tend to forget the Lemming factor when discussing Spanish property prices as expats. I’ve got no doubt that they’re back.

While innocently enjoying the sunshine and ambience on the terrace of a Spanish bar this afternoon, I listened to a retired Brit couple discussing their recent purchase of a property nearby which they considered a bargain. I know from personal experience that they paid more than double of the house’s actual value.

I watched an elderly couple buying fake sun glasses from a lookie-lookie man that will probably ruin their eyesight.

What do you do? I’ll help anyone if I can, but how can you help lemmings? There are simply too many of them.

And in case anyone accuses me of being over-sarcastic, I came over as a lemming too, and learned the hard way.

Any pointers to where we can find these supposedly reduced-price properties? Even on recent trips to Spain and looking in estate agents' windows, the prices seem far from crashed.
Keep looking as there are bargains as many have said, but if you want front line on the beach or indeed a real nice place near the beach that will cost.
BTW forget the pool if the property has one (IMO) as I have meet a lot of buyers over the years who buy the villa for the pool with a, It Has a Pool To Die For
In fact I know a couple who bought a place for the pool that had no mains water/electricity

Still maybe they think that they would use it every day, of every month, and just sleep in the house ?

I have to agree, the pool can be a pain in the butt, especially if you don't like working.

Keeping a pool takes all of 3 minutes a day in the summer and about 3 minutes a week in the winter ,cant see what all the fuss is about.

Don't be falling into the trap of thinking that this is something new and unrecoverable. It's all deliberately done every ten years or so to get the wealthy richer and to keep the poor relying on the wealthy.

Before recovery everyone will have to be convinced that this time there is no recovery in sight.

I don't want to get personal but I think you have been taken in Hook line and sinker. I would take a bet that you are poor? Don't worry you're not alone. Wake up.
Here, I definitely agree with you!

We reckon 10mins a week in winter and 1hr once a month. In summer as required but then we are down at the pool every day and I can't not do bits and pieces all the time not one for sunbathing.
