The Good Property Guide

The Good Property Guide – March 2014

It’s been a soggy old time for much of the UK recently, with near-endless rain and terrible floods affecting some unlucky areas. But dare we say that springtime and drier weather seem to have arrived at last? We don’t want to jinx things with our optimism, but it does feel like sunnier days are now here to stay.

The flowers are out, and people have a noticeable spring in their step. Many of you choose this point of the year to start searching for a home to buy abroad. And time is really on your side at the moment too, with the pound strong against the euro, and many sunny countries seeing some of their best-value property prices for a long time.

Economies are improving, so prices are unlikely to sink further, and the overall outlook seems positive. It’s a great time to buy.

In this issue we look at a wide range of enticing locations for holiday homes and investment properties – from Croatia to the Caribbean, Spain to the Cyclades, southern France to Florida. We also climb to the top of Mount Vesuvius, to entertain you with a bit of an armchair-travel. Enjoy this issue, and see you next time!
