Study reveals Costa del Sol is still a desirable location

Some good news for home owners and local businesses in the Malaga province as the results from a study about 2012 beach bar takings in the area came back as satisfactory.

The study shows that despite the economic crisis, the Costa del Sol is still a very desirable place to holiday and that beach food services and tourism in general is not in crisis. In fact, custom from foreign clients has noticeably increased which is great news for home owners who wish use their properties for holiday rentals this year.

Southern Spain has so much to offer with the superb weather and a wide range of things to do for people of all tastes and ages, it’s no wonder the area remains popular. The excellent selection of golf courses, beaches and activities keep even the most active families on their toes. For those who enjoy the quieter life, there are plenty of unspoilt places to relax and unwind and lots of gastronomical gems waiting to be found, hidden away from the hustle and bustle.

Families, and couples from all over the world will be coming to the Costa del Sol for their holidays this year including many from the Nordic community who are said to be some of the highest spending tourists. Russian tourists also love the area and usually prefer to stay in holiday homes on the Costa del Sol, so again this is good opportunity for home owners looking to make extra income from their properties in 2013.

Costa del Sol will be a place of refuge for hundreds of Brits during Olympic Games

There have been several reports lately on how thousands of Brits are planning to flee the UK while the Olympic Games take place. According to the reports, 21% of British people said they are making plans to be somewhere else during the weeks of the main events.

With London being extremely busy during the Olympic Games, even with heightened security it may not particularly bring a relaxed atmosphere to those who live there and the Costa del Sol is an appealing choice for thousands who want to get away from it all. After all they can still watch the Games from sunny Spain if they want to!

Self catering holiday homes on the Costa del Sol are becoming ever more popular with families, groups and couples looking for more independence from their holidays. Simple things like being able to stock up the fridge with their favourite food and drinks or making meals at home can mean a world of difference to some holiday makers who want their home comforts. So if you want to earn extra rental income on your Spanish property while the Olympic Games are on, now is a great time to really promote to the UK market.

Furnishing your Spanish Property

If you own a property in Spain and want to make an extra income from renting your property out, you will know it’s more important than ever to make your property stand out from the rest if you want to be a successful landlord.

The first thing people look at when searching for properties is the photos. If your photos are showing clutter and old fashioned decor and furniture, chances are the potential buyers will just move onto the next one. Continue reading “Furnishing your Spanish Property”

Why do you need a management company if you have a long-term tenant in your Costa del Sol property?

You desperately need help covering the running costs of your vacant property on the Costa del Sol.
The rental agent you contacted last month called a few days ago to say they’ve found you a long-term tenant. You and your new tenant have signed the rental contract the agency organised, you’ve paid the one-off fee upfront fee the agent asked for. The tenant has paid a deposit and they seem nice and trustworthy. What could possibly go wrong now…?

KeysOkay, just imagine this…

  • You desperately need help covering the running costs of your vacant property on the Costa del Sol
  • The  rental agent you contacted last month called a few days ago to say they’ve found you a long-term tenant (Yesss!!!)
  • You and your new tenant have signed the rental contract the agency organised, you’ve paid the one-off fee upfront fee the agent asked for
  • The tenant has paid a deposit and they seem nice and trustworthy

You can’t believe your luck. Everything is sorted. From now on, there’ll be no more overheads to worry about. All the money your tenant pays you in rent each month is yours to help pay for the property you thought you could no longer afford.

Yeah, you can finally relax…what could possibly go wrong?

Now it’s time to wake up and smell the coffee!

The above might seem like a dream scenario on the surface, but there are a number of issues you might not have considered which could and probably will come back to haunt you, especially if you’re renting your Costa property out  while actually living in another country.

For instance, who’s going to provide a spare set of keys at 3am if your tenant phones to say they’ve lost their set?

Who’s going to find a plumber if there’s a water leak in your apartment on a Sunday?

Who’ll inspect your property on a regular basis to make sure your tenants are treating it properly?

Who’s collecting the rent?

Who’s going to have to deal with everything if the tenant (God forbid!) just stops paying the rent?

And who’s going to get sued if there are any serious personal injuries or death caused by faulty fixtures or fittings in your property?

The answer, if you don’t have a property management company in place, is you.

A professional management company might cost you money you’d rather not spend, but in return they’ll relieve you of all these worries and more, which in turn will save you both time and money in the long-term, and help you and your tenant to enjoy a mutually rewarding tenancy with fewer risks.

It’s not only worth thinking about, it’s a ‘no-brainer’.
