Located in the Galician province of Lugo, it comprises a m2 house, two haylofts, a granary and a number of other buildings scattered.

Let me explain…. Recently I was looking at properties with an American couple of retirement age, who were in Valencia for the first time. Our initial communications had led me to believe that they were interested in a property in the central historic district that would serve as their home for part of the year and provide some rental income when they were not in residence.

I had thought that the primary purpose of their purchase was to provide an alternative life experience. It was now clear that return on investment was paramount. I share this story because when buying a property overseas , you must be clear about your objectives.

The preeminent question should be whether you are buying primarily as an investment or as a lifestyle purchase intended to bring you a better life experience.

Also, given the U. What I will share is the path that led me to Valencia in the hope that this might help you with your own decision… even though my path may convince you that Valencia and possibly all of Spain is not right for you. Here is a list of the influencers that I used to determine if Spain was the best option for me. I have also included some important questions I considered during my search but which may also apply to a property search in any country.

I wanted entertainment options—Orquesta de Valencia, multiple venues for opera, ballet, the Berklee College of Music campus, and more.

When I bought my apartment I was 64 years old. I concluded that income would be a good thing and appreciation potential less important. If you have celebrated your 50th birthday your time horizon might dictate a much different set of guidelines for a purchase. My original intention was to spend six months a year in Valencia and six months in another country, probably in North America. That is still my long-term plan. Spain is ranked in the top eight best health care systems in the world.

Valencia opened the largest hospital in Europe five years ago. A Spanish private health insurance policy for a person aged 65 or older is euros per month. Some countries offer expedited residency with a reasonable property purchase, a modest business investment, or a monetary deposit in a local bank.

Both Aldeas Abandonadas and Galician Rustic have the job of dealing with those who have inherited property in these villages. First they have to locate them — some are dead and others have moved abroad — and then get them to reach an agreement.

Their job also involves visiting the public notary, the land register and the local councils in search of necessary paperwork. In short, the most difficult part of the entire transaction is making the village sellable in the first place. This is where Aldeas Abandonadas and Galician Rustic come in, taking the exact measurements and recording the hamlet on the Property Register so the new buyers do not have to worry that, a few years down the line, an heir will turn up and lay claim to a wall or a pile of rubble that has been refashioned into an outhouse.

The agencies get a good deal of support from the local councils who are keen to see these villages injected with new life and help by providing the basic infrastructure. English version by Heather Galloway.

Let me explain… Recently I was looking at properties with an American couple of retirement age, who were in Valencia for the first time.

First Things First I share this story because when buying a property overseas , you must be clear about your objectives. Initial Considerations 1. Urban Or Rural? Ask yourself: Is owning and driving a car in a foreign country too daunting? Does an isolated location concern me because of potential security issues? Large Or Small? Ask yourself: Do I prefer a rural location; and if so, how important is my proximity to a city versus the privacy I gain from a more remote area?

Apartment Or House? Ask yourself: Is a beach important? Or do I prefer mountains? Is learning a foreign language too scary? Is the lack of certain American cultural attractions a deal breaker?

Part-Time Or Full-Time? Ask yourself: Will I view this property as a primary residence or as a vacation or part-time home? This decision can determine the level and cost of decoration and personalization of the space. Health Care Spain is ranked in the top eight best health care systems in the world. Ask yourself: Is health care a priority? Even for a healthy 50 year old… it should be. The cost of private health insurance in Spain for a year-old North American will be one-half to two-thirds the cost of insurance for a 65 year old.

A year-old American has access to Medicare in the States, whereas a self-employed 50 year old is looking at 15 more years of out-of-pocket health insurance expense that is rapidly increasing in cost.

Do you want to make money or make a life? Do your homework about the cities and countries that hold a special interest for you, and keep an open mind. Rent before you buy for a minimum of two months. Hire a good tax advisor to steer you through the sometimes choppy waters of investing overseas.

The Christies have never been able to confirm whether the owners of two ruined cottages at the far end of their village have living descendants.

Most of the buildings at Mr. Broken desks are piled up on the floor of what was the schoolhouse; moss covers the walls of an old stone oven; iron hooks dangle from beams in one house where meat was hung to dry.

Work is also underway to build a gymnasium, an open-plan kitchen and four en suite bedrooms in the largest, three-story house, where the couple hope one day to host paying guests for training camps or plant-based cookery courses.

They still find time to enjoy the lifestyle, gathering giant mushrooms for lunch, climbing trees when grandchildren visit and settling down in the evening to light a fire in their wood-burning stove. The sale of these hamlets is not easy, however. Rosi Costoya has spent a year trying to gather all the paperwork needed for the sale of a village in Viveiro. And she is currently in talks with the 24 owners of another village. Both Aldeas Abandonadas and Galician Rustic have the job of dealing with those who have inherited property in these villages.

First they have to locate them — some are dead and others have moved abroad — and then get them to reach an agreement. Their job also involves visiting the public notary, the land register and the local councils in search of necessary paperwork.

In short, the most difficult part of the entire transaction is making the village sellable in the first place. This is where Aldeas Abandonadas and Galician Rustic come in, taking the exact measurements and recording the hamlet on the Property Register so the new buyers do not have to worry that, a few years down the line, an heir will turn up and lay claim to a wall or a pile of rubble that has been refashioned into an outhouse.

I share this story because when buying a property overseas , you must be clear about your objectives. The preeminent question should be whether you are buying primarily as an investment or as a lifestyle purchase intended to bring you a better life experience.

What I will share is the path that led me to Valencia in the hope that this might help you with your own decision… even though my path may convince you that Valencia and possibly all of Spain is not right for you. Here is a list of the influencers that I used to determine if Spain was the best option for me. I have also included some important questions I considered during my search but which may also apply to a property search in any country.

I chose Valencia because I wanted a pedestrian friendly, walkable city that would allow me to live downtown without owning a vehicle. Ask yourself:. I spent most of my life in Nashville, Tennessee. The metropolitan area of Valencia is estimated to be approximately 1. So my transition to Valencia was easier than if I had chosen a much larger city such as Barcelona population 4.

I wanted a significant university presence. Valencia has a university with an estimated 50, students at its three main campuses. I wanted history. Valencia was founded in B. I wanted entertainment options—Orquesta de Valencia, multiple venues for opera, ballet, the Berklee College of Music campus, and more. When I bought my apartment I was 64 years old.

I concluded that income would be a good thing and appreciation potential less important. If you have celebrated your 50th birthday your time horizon might dictate a much different set of guidelines for a purchase. My original intention was to spend six months a year in Valencia and six months in another country, probably in North America.

It was from a group of people who had been friends since childhood and who were looking for an alternative to the typical residential estates along the Mediterranean coast. The purchase of an abandoned village has shown itself to be more than just a short-term trend. And that is why there are an increasing number of owners who had previously forgotten their inheritance but who are now sorting out the papers in order to put their abandoned homes or hamlets on the market.

Even so, it is still a lot less than a city apartment. Aldeas Abandonadas has villages on its books ready to sell. The sale of these hamlets is not easy, however.

In short, the most difficult part of the entire transaction is making the village sellable in the first place. While some media present buying the 1 euro house as a new opportunity, his trend has been going on since at least , when entire Spanish villages started going on the market for less than the cost of a 1-bedroom apartment in London.

We can say without fear of contradiction that people rarely give anything of value away for free. Some houses — typically those in poor shape — really change hands for 1 euro. By far, Italy has the most villages and towns using the 1 euro scheme to restore and repopulate, and there are dozens of active campaigns to attract investors from north to south as well as on the islands of Sicily and Sardinia.

Most are in poor condition and the municipalities sell for a symbolic price of 1 euro, though auction prices tend to be higher. Buyers have to make a significant investment in rehabbing the houses. There are also fees for real estate agents, taxes and the costs of hooking back up to local utilities. First, the south is far different from the north, Maurizio said.

Second, many of the houses in the south including Campania, the poorest region, were built for migrant workers who traveled from region to region, working on estates. Those houses are quite small, perhaps 60m2 on three floors. You can call Maurizio at: country code 39 — or email him at: maurizioberti gmail. Bisaccia, in the Campania region, has 90 — yes, nine-zero — properties listed, each for 1 euro, according to CNN.

But you can see market-priced homes here starting at about 11, euros. No town has ridden the train to international headlines like Cammarata. They did it by upping the ante … well, actually, by lowering the ante to zero. This village toward more affluent Northern Italy is just south of San Marino. Two former farmsteads located in the rural surroundings have already sold, but a couple of historical buildings in the old village center are available, according to media reports.

Gangi near Palermo in Sicily has been selling houses at give-away prices since In fact, Gangi was voted the most beautiful village in Italy in , according to its website. An island in the Med! Which we know from personal experience could be a heck of a bargain. Mussomeli is another town in Sicily that, like Gangi, has gotten a lot of pub for their effort, sold a lot of homes and started to attract new residents. CNN has a great feature on a French couple who negotiated the process and ended up with a small home in this thriving Sicilian town, apparently without any real complications.

Insider has the best of many, many posts about Cammarata. This Sicilian town has probably sold more houses in the past year than any other in Italy, receiving , emails from foreigners interested in buying one of the first batch of 16 homes.

First Things First I share this story because when buying a property overseas , you must be clear about your objectives. Initial Considerations 1. Urban Or Rural? Ask yourself: Is owning and driving a car in a foreign country too daunting? Does an isolated location concern me because of potential security issues?

Large Or Small? Ask yourself: Do I prefer a rural location; and if so, how important is my proximity to a city versus the privacy I gain from a more remote area? Apartment Or House? Ask yourself: Is a beach important? Or do I prefer mountains? Is learning a foreign language too scary?
