IN FACT if you TIME IT RIGHT you can literally save 1000’s on an exchange deal when paying off your house purchase.

So it is ALWAYS WORTH using a reliable and trusted foreign exchange service, like MoneyCorp as their rates and service are much better than a typical bank or Bureau de Change service.

Fashion Show in Hondón Frailes

Hondón Linen and Luxury Goods held a winter fashion show in Frailes. Billie, Stella and Pete turned their village shop (in Calle Virgen de la Salud) into fashion venue complete with catwalk. They raised money for RBL Poppy appeal and the Hondón Branch of the Legion. Great !

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.

Toni : It’s my little piece of paradise!

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.

Recommending Hondón Villas (Video Testimonial #2)

VIDEO TESTIMONIALS : Hondon Villas. Irana Davidson talks about her experience buying her Hondón Valley home through Hondon Villas.

What was the main reason you chose the Hondón Valley?
We actually fell in love with the village to start with (Hondón de los Frailes). We sat at the 28 Restaurant and we looked down the village and we saw it had everything we imagined we wanted.

Why would you recommend Hondón Villas?
The name “Hondón” being associated with Hondón Villas seemed a natural choice. As I said before, we were never pushed into looking at any property. We looked at properties that we chose. And when we decided on the property we wanted it then became a real hand-holding process.

Not speaking Spanish it (the buying process) became quite daunting. But everything was basically done for us. We were taken to the notary. We were given real good advice. And once we had bought the house it was more hand-holding.

Anything we needed, whether it was to do with the property or not I could contact Maureen and she’d say “Right, OK, fine. We’ll sort it!”

And we felt we were looked after. They were more friendly than a lot of places we went to. We were not pushed into looking into anything, it was what we wanted to look at.

How do find the social side of Hondón?
I think the first social event I went to, I was invited by Maureen from Hondón Villas. She invited me to the Ascot Ladies Day which was fabulous because at the time Charlie (my husband) was away in Scotland for a wee while so it was a fantastic way for getting to know people.

You do feel like you can walk through the village and people will speak to you. You can go for a coffee and someone will speak to you. … we rescued a dog and you get to know people through that. I find it very social here.

Recommending Hondón Villas (Video Testimonial #1)

VIDEO TESTIMONIALS : Hondon Villas. Sue and Dean Savage tell us why they would recommend Hondon Villas… We are pleased to be the first local Hondón agent to use Video Testimonials… watch out for more soon.

Dean:
I think because you don’t feel pressured into buying something. And you know that you are being looked after. We’ve looked at lots of houses before we came to this one and the one thing that I felt when we were with other agents is that they were working for the vendor. But with Maureen we felt she was working for us as well. We’d been to other agents who we told what we wanted but they still took us to other properties that were no where near what we wanted, just because they wanted to show somebody that the agent was taking us to their house.

Where as with Maureen she just showed us… she was working for us and was honest with us. She’s say, ‘That is not right for you’ or ‘yeah, ‘I think this one is’. That’s why I would come back (to Hondon Villas) and use Maureen again.

SUE:
“You just felt safe. That is the word I would use. You felt actually safe in her confidence”.

Sue:
Because we were in Maylasia, everything had to be done through Hondon Villas. Maureen made that really easy and helped us with moving in, what was left in the house … actually, the whole package. And you just felt safe. That is the word I would use. You felt actually safe in her confidence.

Dean:
And picking up from that, when we did arrive (in Hondon) the after sale package was really useful and helpful. Actually meeting us at the house with the keys to make sure we happy and OK. And whenever we had a problem, Maureen and her team have been on the end of the phone. So all we had to do was give them a call or walk into the office and nothing was too much of a problem.

Hondon Villas are a featured agent on the Channel 4 TV “A Place in the Sun” program and a AIPP member committed to better standards.

A Place in The Sun in the Hondón Valley

A PLACE IN THE SUN 2019 ::: Hondón Villas have been consultants to A Place in the Sun again in 2019. We just finished helping them …. read on! This year we met Laura Hamilton (see picture) who was so lovely and gave us a few PR tips which should come in handy later.

It’s always a great pleasure to get involved with what is probably the most popular Property Show in the UK. How many years has this been going?

So we are pleased that APITS as we call it, have been to the Hondón Valley areas just about every year for 10 years. And we all think it’s our little secret place, well people do know it exists and still, thankfully, want to come to the area. Which of course, is good for the property market and our sellers.

Map for Hondon Villas. Google Map, Hondon de los Frailes.

We have assisted APITS and other TV Property programs quite a few times now, most years in fact, including “Escape to the Continent” and ” A New Life in the Sun”.

Having met many of the APITS presenters we have to say they are all very professional, charming and always happy to do a few publicity shots in-between shooting the program. As we stand watching the program being made, they make it look so easy and slick. They are great at putting the potential buyers at ease as I am sure the cameras can be a little intimidating… Interesting stuff.

If you want to get involved with the Place in the Sun program head on over to their web page: https://www.aplaceinthesun.com/tv-show/appear-on-the-tv-show
