If you find you are booking your summer holidays already, ask yourself how often you have been to the same place. Lots of us like revisiting favorite holiday destinations more than once, but some people find the draw of the place is like a magnet. We book the same city and even the same hotel over and over again.
If you are booking a holiday in a place you have been to before if may be time to think about buying a holiday home there instead. Chances are your property will always be worth at least what you paid for it. Instead of spending a couple of thousand on accommodation every time you go, why not own a property you can visit as often as you like?
Countries like Spain are full of foreigners who love the place so much they bought a home there. If you are of working age now, you can buy a holiday home that may suit you as a retirement home one day. Alternatively, the investment in the property may fund whatever you choose to do when you have left work for good. Spain offers fabulous weather and several exciting cities to sample the culture and night-life from. Whichever area you pick, don’t forget to apply for your NIE Numbers before choosing a house to buy.
