Well the real estate market is picking up a treat now travel is less restricted to/from different areas and countries… The summer looks promising with 10+ sales over June & July already. Many of our prospects have kept good on their word to turn up in the Hondon Valley area as soon as Covid measures allowed. Great news indeed.
Finally, some good news for the diminished Spanish Real Estate industry… or at least a promising prediction for a better post-Covid, post-Brexit property market in Spain.
Is the Spanish property market about to turn from buyer dominance to seller dominance?
This news comes courtesy of FotoCasa and Gonzalo Bernardos (economist, analyst and professor at the University of Barcelona). He says, there is real potential for a Spanish real estate boom in 2022 and 2023 and could see some area prices rise and sales increase by 10 to 15% in the next two years. [Source: fotocasa.es]
Since the 2008 Crash, buyers have had the upper hand even with property losing 25/40% of their value. There have and still are some incredible bargains to be had in rural markets. Like this 5 bedroom villa near to Hondón Valley / La Romana for just 179,950€uro. e.g.
Gonzalo forecasts: increases in property transactions and prices and a promising future for those who want to sell homes in good condition. Buyers, on the other hand, will no longer have the privileged position they have enjoyed in the last two years.
The predicted downturn due to Covid-19 was not as bad as predicted, apparently. Gonzalo says the current market is very satisfactory, since the real estate crisis generated by Covid-19 has been much better than expected, with 2020 house purchases down by 14.5%. It was helped by very low interest rates, more banks granting mortgages, and a surprising demand for housing during the pandemic. The banks finally being the ally of the Realtor… in April 2021, financial institutions granted 31% more mortgages than the monthly average for 2019. Plus, the general populace have proved a nation of savers and have more disposable income than in the last 30 years.
Spain is also predicting a growth in GDP… 6% in 2021 and 7% in 2022. If this materialises then financial confidence will return. People will move and improve their lives.
So fingers crossed, Gonzalo is correct with his property market predictions… “Due to all the above reasons, the logical result is the appearance of a new real estate boom in 2022 and 2023. In 2021, the price in the second half of the year will grow more than it fell in the first and, at the end of the year, the rise can be around 3%. The transactions will accompany and rise 15%. In 2022, the price increase will approach 10% and sales around 15%. Undoubtedly, all this constitutes a magnificent situation for professionals in the real estate sector,“

Just how many years has the UK TV show “A Place In The Sun” been going? How many people, we wonder, has it inspired to up sticks to a better life abroad or buy a holiday home in another country? Countless and many no doubt.
We loved the show years ago and still do. We remember watching, during those cold UK winter months, the many couples on their dream journey. And with some envy and awe of a better lifestyle in the sunshine.
Well, back in the early 2000s we were stuck in a corporate work life and burning out. Those pictures of blues skies and Al Fresco tapas bars sure inspired us and many more to move to abroad. In our case, it was Spain.
15 years ago, after a few trips to look for a dream villa, we moved to the Hondón Valley, to work at a slower pace, enjoy the warmer climes and address the work/life balance we had got so wrong in England. Working from home at first, we set up a simple real estate portal (hondon.co.uk) in Feb’ 2006. It was to then become Hondon Villas.
And what is so nice is we have now helped APITS with their TV program quite a few times (pinch ourselves!). It sure generates a vibe in the local area when we know APITS is in town, often catching the famous presenters, like Jasmine, Jonnie or Laura in the village squares. Of course then the local Expats want to see the show when it is eventually broadcast on UK Channel 4.
So, yes, we have to thank APITS for the inspiration, really. Giving us that window into a life abroad was definitely via the TV, was the catalyst for our journey. We have no regrets making the move. It is what you make it of course and there will be highs and lows, but you’ll be thankful for the tranquil pace, culture, food and social aspects for sure if you make even the smallest effort to play. Thankfully, the APITS TV prog’ still inspires so many to make a life-changing move to Spain, and NOW we get to meet them and share our story.
La Montanosa is a rural Spanish urbanisation of luxury high-end villas situated in the very sunny Hondon Valley: namely Hondon de las Nieves and Hondon de los Frailes.

La Montanosa is home to about 400 relatively new-build detached villas from various builders. Most have private swimming pools. It is popular with foreign nationals looking for their “place in the sun”. There is roughly a 50/50 split of permanent foreign residents and holiday homes.

It enjoys 360-degree mountain views and is surrounded by lush agricultural land (grapes, olives, almonds, and many salad vegetables). The roads are quiet and an easy drive to the local villages. The villages are well-equipped with shops, bars, restaurants and essential services like medical centres and pharmacies. There are weekly markets and regular fiestas and social events (some religious). it is a peaceful and very safe area to live.
This popular “new build” development (urb.) is now about 15 years old and built on legally urbanized farmland. The nearby fields are still used to grow almonds, grapes and olives.
The centrepiece of La Montanosa is the lovingly restored “La Finca”, now a restaurant and hotel. All villas on this superb urbanization have full and legal services: water, electricity, drainage and fibre-optic Internet is readily available. The views and sunsets are a daily delight.

Contact Hondon Villas for details or to book a property viewing. We are based in the Hondon Valley, celebrating 15 years as the first choice agent in the area.
Hondon Villas help you buy or sell your Spanish dream home in the Hondon Valley.
Part of that help is to “sell” the area, to show prospective property purchasers what the area is like, the landscapes, local life or the culture they may enjoy. After all, “location, location, location” is the foundation of property sales.
As we know, foreigners need to “buy” the location before they commit to a new home. Quite right too! So over years we release local pictures and videos about the Hondón areas…
As the #1 local agent for 15 years you benefit from all that local knowledge and our real estate experience. We are AIPP Reg’d for 5 years (meaning we provide Pro’ service standards) and have won “The Business of the Year” award in Costa Blanca South.
