Coronavirus! We have closed temporarily.

By law, we have to CLOSE the real estate office for a few weeks … we are sorry for any inconvenience which is due to the current Coronavirus outbreak in Spain. But you CAN STILL call, email and message us (see contact details below).

To comply with the decree, like most businesses across Spain, our main office in Frailes is closed for the time being. Our agents and team are at home safe and well for now.

The good news 🙂 is we can still take telephone calls, messages and emails if you need to ask us a question or are concerned about your property in any way. Here are the main points of contact.

Len says: We would like just like to say and let it be known that credit where credit is due !, that Mo and Saph of Hondon Villas have given us excellent service and been the most helpful and professional agents to us and we know many many other people as well. They have always gone the extra mile for us and its most appreciated. We would still and have recommended them to lots of people 🙂 … Said it before but if you want to sell your property professionally then go with Maureen is the best 🙂

“Hondon Villas helped us through the whole purchase process and continue to help after completion – thank you Kathryn and the team!” … says Simon Foster

Sharon Buckley: Maureen and her team have always been brilliant! We’ve rented a number of properties over the years through Hondon Villas and it’s our dream/ambition to eventually buy/build our dream villa. Maureen and her team have listened to our “must have/not” criteria and have shown great patience with us as our needs have changed.

Planning & putting your ‘buying team’ together

You may be familiar with the phrase ‘buyers remorse’, often an unwelcome by-product of hasty and ill-considered decisions.

Hondon Villas are proud to add their properties for sale using the AIPO property portal.

So rather than just short-listing properties found online or in an agents window, take time beforehand to consider the specific lifestyle you seek, your likely pattern of property use and how easily you might sell-on the property one day, for example. This can often deliver surprising and welcome results!

Proper planning makes choosing an AIPP specialist agent, lawyer, currency and mortgage broker to discuss your initial ideas more likely to result in the happiest outcome for you. It may take several months to find your ideal property so building a good relationship with a great agent, in particular, will not only guide you to that goal but may bring lasting benefits in on-going local support for you and your property after your purchase.

Consider the likely impact of currency movements at the start. At worst, you may be unable to complete your purchase but this can be avoided if you take and act upon specialist currency advice.

Avoid the common pitfalls by using our Free Legal Advice service and get a ‘legal roadmap’ from an AIPP specialist lawyer, before you start. Always use a truly independent lawyer.

Even if you are in the fortunate position to buy a foreign property outright, for cash, you may be better-off taking a mortgage, long term.

Search AIPP member property listings only via the button or menu link at the top of this page (note: not all AIPP member agents are listed on this service) or search for an AIPP member in the country of your choice to help you directly.

I like the Hondón Valley because…

We asked via our Facebook Group to finish the sentence “I like the Hondon Valley because… “. Here are a few replies we got!

Kathryn : “I love the laid back attitude along with the peace and quiet of a small Spanish village. Being surrounded by mountains is my favourite thing, it is so relaxing.

Joan : It’s our little piece of Heaven on Earth – our little bit of Paradise ❤❤❤

Mia : Nice people, nice places around, good entertainment. I hope to live there soon.

Pamela : I luv living there. No regrets!

Janni : The weather is sublime. The Spanish are so welcoming and kind. The mountains are stunning and we have Hondon de los Frailes nearby with fab restaurants and a wonderful community of Brits, Dutch and other nationalities. There are many social activities and the coast is not far away. We feel lucky to have found the Hondon Valley.

The Hondon Valley

Relax … we are here to help. Just enjoy the sunshine, the views and chill. Our “Tranquilo” video is a short introduction to the glorious Hondon Valley inland to the Alicante Region, Costa Blanca South, Spain.

The Hondón Valley is a peaceful, friendly and typically warm Spanish countryside surrounded by mountainous scenic beauty.

The main two villages of Hondon de las Nieves and Hondon de los Frailes nest in the beautiful Hondon Valley. The relatively newly built Urbansation of La Montanosa is sandwiched between these two Hondón villages.

Playing the Exchange Game in Spanish Property

As foreign buyers or sellers of Spanish property you may need to pay careful attention to exchange rates. In fact you really should if you want to make your money work for you. Just a few cents in the rates can make substantial differences to your selling/buying power.

Money Exchange in the Hondon Valley

Sadly, many people in our experience, particularly the Brits, in the Hondon Valley areas do not factor currency exchange into their buy/sell goals.

In particular British sellers looking to return to their homeland have not worked out what they may sell for in relation to what they bough for (Euro to Sterling £). Often, they simply want to make a profit based on their original purchase price + added feature costs (like a pool, patio, etc). When we point out that as they bought in the boom years at about 146+ € to the pound they are currently in a great relative position, exchange wise if they take money back to the UK. And it CAN BE THOUSANDS DIFFERENCE!

And for the British buyers in particular you can save thousands on the purchase price by being proactive in checking the exchange rates, buying Euros when the rate is good. Many banks now offer currency accounts.

Maybe not so easy for British sellers who sell when they can so are subject to the rate at the time… But there are still things you can do whilst your property is on the market.

So get wise with your money, make it work for you… Of course it always depends on your personal circumstances, your property goals and target budget. Hondon Villas can advise you but we do partner MoneyCorp who know the way to play this game a lot better than we do and have an enviable pedigree in exchange. They literally could save you literally 1000’s.

TYPICAL EXAMPLE: In early Nov 2019 the rate was 116€ to the £. As I write (mid Dec, pre-Brexit) it’s gained to 119€ to the pound.
So for an average 200,000 property in the Hondon Valley this 3 cent margin could be 6,000 €uros difference! Amazing!
So you’ll agree this is a significant amount and worth punting for if you can.

Of course you don’t have to wait until you buy or sell to play the currency or take advantage of the rates in your favour but MOST people don’t and as in the example above you can see that inertia could cost you dearly. Get wise, get a currency account ASAP!

And the daft thing is it isn’t hard to do with the help of a currency exchange account, like MoneyCorp.

Hondon Valley Property Agent

As we enter BREXIT/ELECTIONS in the UK the future is uncertain and this usually affects the exchange rates. So get proactive NOW whether you are buying or selling. It may be wise to open a MoneyCorp account now if you don’t already have one.
