This Is Where You’ll Get The
Best Bang For Your Buck In Old Europe…

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

It’s hard to imagine living the good life anywhere in Europe without preparing yourself for some sticker shock…

But here in Spain, the surprise comes in discovering how low the price tags are…

Especially given the top quality of life on offer…

And, this incredible value applies to everything from eating out… to health care… to renting or buying a home.

Dreaming of settling in a city that’s full of Old-World charm?

You can rent a studio, right in the heart of Seville, for just US$480 a month… or own a three-bed apartment here from US$66,800.

Seville Cathedral and Giralda tower
Rent in the heart of Seville for less than US$500 a month…

Prefer to kick back at the coast?

Again, it’s good news…

Apartments on the sought-after Costa del Sol, with views of the twinkling Mediterranean, start from US$590 a month…

Or pick up your own beach home—minutes from the sand, with sea views from your balcony—for US$158,900.

Nice beach in Nerja, Spain
Own a home on the Costa del Sol for less than US$160,000…
or rent for under US$600 a month…

To get this kind of value in France, Italy or Portugal, you’d likely have to base yourself at least 10 minutes or so from the city center or coast…

But here in Spain, you won’t have to make such sacrifices.

From its stunning beaches to its tranquil mountain retreats, brand-name cities to glamorous island resorts, this is one unbelievably diverse country.

Spain has a range of climates… a range of landscapes… and a range of lifestyles.

In fact, I’d say it’s impossible to travel any length of the country and not find a single place to charm you… at a price that’s easy on your pocket…

And, with the greenback and euro almost equal, this is the best time in 20 years take advantage of the great values in Spain…

In a minute, I’ll show you some of the top lifestyle options (and dream properties) on offer here today.

But first, let’s take a quick look at the advantages of settling in this warm, welcoming country that’s a world away from the stresses of North American life…

11 Reasons Spain Is One Of
The World’s Top Retirement Havens

#1 – A Retirement Without Compromise…

Spain ranks highly among expat workers and retirees from all over the globe. And for good reason

It offers all the romance of the Old World, holding tight to its traditional charms (like flamenco, tapas, and a quirky mix of architecture)…

Yet mixes in the best of the 21st century.

La boqueria Market, Barcelona, Spain
Tasty and cheap… welcome to the world of tapas!

Spain has a first-class infrastructure and one of the world’s best health care systems…

And, all these advantages come at an affordable cost.

Living in the center of world-class cities like Madrid or Barcelona, your living costs would easily be 50% less than city life in Miami or L.A.

In Valencia—named the world’s #1 expat destination by InterNations in 2020—you’ll find everything from renting an apartment to eating out even cheaper. A couple could live well here on a budget of US$1,780 a month (including rent).

In Seville and Málaga, your budget can be as low as US$1,500… and prices drop even more as you move inland.

#2 – Affordable Property (Cheaper Than France And Portugal)…

Spain is the most popular second-home destination in Europe and home to some 7.2 million expats. Despite its popularity, the cost of housing remains cheaper than many of its neighbors…

Spain and Portugal boast many of the same attractions. So, how do property prices compare between the two?

Luis da Silva, my go-to real estate expert in the region, says:

“When you compare like with like, real estate in Spain is really much cheaper. Thanks to Portugal’s limited housing stock and prices inflating in recent years, you get a lot more bang for your buck in Spain. And you have a much bigger variety of costas to choose from.”

Comparing like with like on the Atlantic coast, we find…

A two-bed townhouse in one of my favorite spots in Portugal’s Algarve for US$468,000…

Meanwhile, near the town of Cádiz on Spain’s Costa de la Luz, you can buy a similar townhouse at the beach for US$244,750…

That’s almost 50% less in Spain.

Coastal villas in Cádiz can be half the price of Portugal’s Algarve…

What about prices on the Mediterranean?

Portugal doesn’t have a Mediterranean coastline. But, if we look to the French Riviera, there’s a two-bed apartment in Nice, with sea views, asking US$555,700…

Yet, on the Costa del Sol, surrounded by beaches and golf courses, you can buy a similar two-bed apartment, second line to the beach with wide sea views, for US$229,875… almost 60% less!

#3 – Choose Your Lifestyle (Spain Has It)…

From cosmopolitan cities to sun-kissed Mediterranean shores… to romantic island escapes and mountain villages lost in time… modern Spain has 17 autonomous regions, each with its own personality and customs—and, sometimes, its own dialect.

Whichever region you decide to call home, you’ll never be stuck for new cultures to explore.

Want a vibrant city, full on Old-World charm, where there’s always something going on? Choose from Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Seville, and many more…

Seville is one of the best places to experience authentic flamenco…

Prefer to live by the beach? Again you have options… from the wild Atlantic coast to the calm shores of the Mediterranean… and from mainland to island…

Looking for the quieter life? Escape to lush Galicia where shepherds still roam the hills… and local bakers deliver their fresh loaves to your door, ready for when you wake.

#4 – Laid-Back Pace Of Life…

If you’re hoping to escape the rat race once and for all, you’ll find Spain refreshing…

This is a true work-to-live society with an emphasis on time with family and friends.

Siesta culture is still strong. And holidays are many—with each region having colorful festivals throughout the year.

In many ways, life in Spain can feel like the America of the 1970s. People get dressed up… no matter how small the occasion. And you’ll often see three or four generations socializing together.

Retirees are respected here, too. Ivan, one of our local contacts in Cádiz, told us:

mature attractive and happy woman on with grey hair enjoying amazing sea view from swing feeling young and free swinging carefree having beautiful retirement
Retirement is just another word for adventure in Andalucía…

“Older people are very respected in Andalucía. They live their lives to the fullest until the very end. They still socialize in the plazas, play dominoes, babysit their grandkids at the beach, and do exercise classes together.

“This is especially true about older women from Andalucía. They are my inspiration for how to age with elegance. They still get dressed up, do their hair and makeup, go out with their friends to restaurants and cafés, and so on. And they are sassy!”

#5 – Great Weather (With Sunshine Year-Round)…

With an average 3,000 annual sunshine hours, you can expect to enjoy the outdoor lifestyle most of the year…

The Andalucía region is the hottest part of all western Europe. In Seville, daytime temperatures in winter rarely drop below 60 degrees. But if you can’t stand the intense heat of high summer, cities like Málaga and Valencia provide a more comfortable climate.

beautiful Nature in Alcudia, Mallorca, Spain
Year-round good weather means more opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors…

If you want a taste of winter chill, you’ll find snow to the north in the Pyrenees, and south in the Sierra Nevada. Both provide skiing and snowboarding during winter months.

#6 – World-Class Beaches…

From its dramatic Atlantic shores to idyllic Mediterranean beaches, Spain has more than 3,000 miles of coastline… not forgetting its Balearic and Canary islands that attract everyone from the jet set to the budget traveler…

The Costa del Sol is home to the most stunning beaches, so it can be hard to get near one in high season…

Over 3,000 beaches to choose from…

But travel north to the Costa Brava or Costa Dorada… where the crowds begin to thin out… and you’ll find long, golden beaches lapped by the warm Mediterranean…

Spanish beaches are also clean and safe for swimming. The country holds the most blue flags of all European countries—and has done so since the awards began in 1987.

#7 – Top Health Care…

The Spanish health care system is one of the best in the world—it placed 7th in the most recent World Health Organization rankings.

As a North American retiree, you likely won’t have free access to the Spanish public health system. But there is a pay-in scheme of around US$65 a month for under-65s and US$170 a month for older residents. Meantime, private health insurance plans start from around US$300 a month.

Prescription drugs can be up to 75% less than the U.S.

If you need ongoing access to health care, you’ll be well catered for…

My friend Lucy who spent many years living in Barcelona says, “Barcelona has an enviable reputation for health care. There are well-trained doctors galore and many English-speaking ones from several different countries. Consultants in every specialty can be found throughout the city.”

#8 – Healthy, Hearty Food (And Great Wine)…

Thanks to the rain up north and the Mediterranean climate down south, almost every fruit and vegetable grows here.

Valencian oranges are renowned as the best in the world… Galicia produces fine cheeses… the Mediterranean serves up the freshest seafood… and olive oil is a staple.

It’s no secret that the Mediterranean diet is a healthy one. For the fourth year running, it was voted the best diet in world by U.S. News & World Report.

Untouched Beaches And
Coconut-Covered Mountains

“It’s generally accepted that the people living in countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea live longer and suffer less than most Americans from cancer and cardiovascular ailments. The not-so-surprising secret is an active lifestyle, weight control and a diet low in red meat, sugar and saturated fat and high in produce, nuts and other healthful foods.”

‐‐U.S. News & World Report

Living here, you could—without any real effort—eat your way into better health.

Best of all, eating out is extremely affordable. In some places, simple tapas come free with your glass of beer or wine… or pay a few dollars for a heartier dish.

Spaniards eat their main meal at 2 p.m., and you’ll find restaurants offering their three-course menú del día for lunch…

Expat in Valencia Mike Herndon says, “I’m single and I don’t cook at home. Why would I when I can enjoy a three-course lunch at one of my favorite restaurants for about US$10.”

Tapas Menu in Madrid
Enjoy a hearty lunch for around US$10…

And let’s not forget wine…

Spain, home to the most vineyards in the world, is also the second-largest wine exporter…

You can buy a good bottle in the supermarket for US$4 or US$5. When you feel like splashing out, you’ll find excellent wines for around US$10 to US$12.

#9 – A Cultural Powerhouse…

If you’re looking for a rich culture, Spain is hard to beat…

City-lovers will be spoiled with entertainment options in Madrid and Barcelona, both of which boast stunning architecture, countless museums and art galleries, theaters, cafés, and every kind of cuisine.

In Barcelona, recently named “the greatest city on Earth” by The Telegraph (UK), all you have to do is grab a seat at an outdoor café and soak up the atmosphere…

Landscape of Barcelona city from the roof top of hotal
Once of Europe’s biggest attractions, Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia—which attracts some 4.5 million visitors a year—is scheduled for completion in 2026…

Andalucía is the birthplace of flamenco and there’s a particularly strong culture of this artform around Seville and Granada… though you can clap along to flamenco shows in all major cities, too.

From the Aqueduct of Segovia to the Alhambra in Granada to La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, local architecture is impressive and varied with well-preserved remains of Roman and Moorish rule to more recent Gothic and Gaudi offerings.

If you’re a soccer fan, you’ll fit right in. Soccer is a religion in Spain. Those that don’t pack the stadiums and streets on match day gather with their families to watch it at home. You’ll have plenty of opportunity to experience premier league, European, and international action in full color.

#10 – Access To Europe…

A huge advantage of living in Spain is the chance to explore Portugal, France, and beyond. Whether by road, rail, or air, Spain’s infrastructure allows you to plan your European adventures easily, frequently, and affordably.

From Seville, you can be in the Algarve in less than two hours by car… From Barcelona, it’s just over two hours to the French Riviera.

Fancy a long weekend in Amsterdam, Vienna, Rome, Prague, or Dublin? Budget airlines like Ryanair and EasyJet offer cheap flights all over Europe, with services close to all major towns.

#11 – Lots Of English-Speaking Company…

If you’re hoping to find English-speaking friends in your new home—at least until you find your feet—you won’t be disappointed…

Madrid, Barcelona, and Valencia all have established expat communities where you’ll find plenty of native English speakers. The same is true of the Costa del Sol where Brits have been visiting and putting down roots for decades.

If you want to make local friends—or get any business done outside of the main tourist areas—you’re going to have to learn to speak at least some Spanish.

The good news is that Spanish is one of the easier languages to learn… and the locals are very patient, encouraging, and forgiving.

Expat Interview:
Why Stephanie Chose To Settle
In The Costa de la Luz

LIOS: How did you end up in Spain?

Stephanie: My husband retired from the U.S. Army in 2015, and we decided to take a year off to travel. We thought we’d go back to work but realized that the cost of living is so much cheaper overseas… even in Western Europe.

We went to the Valencia area the first time we came to Spain, and I was really struck by it. It was much more affordable than I thought it would be. The weather was beautiful—like San Diego but so much cheaper. That’s when the wheels started turning.

But before we moved to Spain, we moved to Japan. My husband is half Japanese, so we spent two and a half years there while he undertook an intensive study program and reconnected with his family.

LIOS: How did you decide on Rota?

Stephanie: We chose Rota because of the U.S. military base here. My husband is retired from the military, so we can use the facilities—most importantly the free Space-A flights for military personnel, but also the fitness center and other recreational facilities, the hospital, and the library.

My husband is an avid golfer, so that was another reason for choosing Rota. Unlike the Algarve where it’s mostly expats and tourists using the courses, the Spanish actually golf as well. The courses are much more affordable too. My husband’s membership at a 27-hole championship course is about €1,300 for the year with discounts to other courses in the region. Golf is also a great way to meet people.

On the whole, I feel that the Costa de la Luz is a hidden gem that many travelers (or aspiring expats) from other countries don’t know about. Rota and the other towns along the coast have incredibly beautiful beaches that are practically empty for many months of the year. Spaniards from Madrid and Seville flock here in the summer and during Easter (Semana Santa), but the area has great weather year-round.

LIOS: How have you found the social scene?

Stephanie: It’s more difficult than I expected to meet people that are my age or in my situation. There are lots of active-duty military members as well as retirees who work on the base, but they’ve been assigned here, which is a different scenario. There are also lots of retirees who are married to Spaniards, but they’re busy with family things…

The expat network is part of the fun of moving abroad… and there isn’t one so much in Rota. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t also make local friends when moving abroad, but having expat friends is a nice way to transition as you build connections with locals, and it’s fun learning about different cultures and speaking different languages, even if the people aren’t from the host country. I find it easier to meet people through online expat groups.

LIOS: What was it like moving during the pandemic?

Stephanie: We spent three months in Rota during winter 2019/2020, just to make sure we wanted to go through the effort of getting the visa. We decided that we did, and we returned to the United States in February 2020, just as Covid was hitting. We spent the better part of 2020 applying for our visas and finally moved here in December 2020.

There’s never a perfect moment to move… I feature a lot of interview profiles on my website of people who have moved overseas, and the message is usually the same: Don’t wait. Tomorrow might not come. Covid really made people see that.

My husband and I had been following the situation in Rota during the pandemic. When we got here, there was this amazing feeling of calm compared to the States, where everything was so political and contentious. Here, it was less of a constant debate.

At the moment, this sense of calm is my number-one favorite thing about living overseas. Whatever your views are, it’s hard to disagree that things are simpler over here.

LIOS: What else do you enjoy about living here?

Stephanie: I love the beauty of Rota’s coastline. I never get tired of seeing the ocean. I can run along the beach for miles or walk through the pine forest on the dunes overlooking the Bay of Cádiz. I love that life is so much more affordable, and that fresh fruits, vegetables, and fish are a bargain.

It’s so easy to make plans to do something outside, because the weather is rarely bad. We can eat outside year-round.

I also enjoy the calmness and simplicity of life in Rota and the relative safety. We had a checklist for our ideal overseas destination, and while we wouldn’t consider locations that we knew were “unsafe,” safety wasn’t one of the specific items on our list. We hadn’t realized how important it was until we lived in Japan

I’ve come to learn that safety is freedom. Japan was extremely safe… and for the most part, I feel comfortable in Rota. People are out so late here, so there are always people on the streets and I never feel unsafe at night.

LIOS: Are there any downsides to living here?

Stephanie: We knew coming in that there’s a massive cultural difference, particularly between Japan and Spain. We knew the mañana factor would be challenging…

Rota is like a sleepy town in the southern United States. The siesta is four or five hours per afternoon. You go to the restaurant, and often it’s “no hay” (i.e., the thing you want is not available)… or there’s a handwritten note on the door of the shop that says, “We’re not here.”

As Americans, we tend to see entrepreneurial opportunities and ask, “Why aren’t you doing it like this?” You just have to adapt. It’s a very slow pace of life.

Let’s Find The Part Of Spain
That’s Right For You…

If you’re intrigued by the attractions of Spain (and really, I’m just skimming the surface here), and you’re up for learning at least a little Spanish, then you’re already off to a great start…

Now, how do you decide whether Spain is right for you… and, where, out of all its great options, would be the best fit for you?

Over the past number of years, we at Live and Invest Overseas have been scouring the length and breadth of Spain to discover the best places for expats to live… and growing our network of experts and expats in the country to help you answer all your questions (big and small)…

At last, I’m ready to bring all the answers to you… straight from the experts… at our first-ever, dedicated Spain event…

If All These Folks Could Do It,
You Can Do It Too!

Who else will you meet at our Live and Invest in Spain Virtual Conference?

Others just like you who’ve already made the move:

Retirees and expats already living, investing, or doing business in this country.

In fact, these introductions alone are worth the price of admission. They could be the most important benefit of the entire event.

These people have no agenda. They’ve agreed to participate in the event for no reason other than they’d like to help out fellow expats considering following in their footsteps. They receive nothing in return… have no ties to anyone (including me or Live and Invest Overseas) and are hindered by no conflict of interest.

Our only request of them is that they tell it like it is. What you hear from these Spain expats won’t be all good. Maybe it won’t even be mostly good (depending on what you’re looking for). But it will be the real deal.

No place is perfect, and we understand that a rose-colored view does you no favors…

There’s a reason these folks are in Spain. They’re all fans. But they’re not fools. They know the good, the bad, the beautiful, and the ugly of day-to-day life and of trying to do day-to-day business in a foreign country… dealing in a foreign language…

They are enjoying the advantages… and they are reconciled to the downsides.

An important part of our agenda during this event is to show you these downsides… so you can decide whether you can live with them, too.

To this end, our expat speakers will be there to tell you about life in Spain as it really is…

Mediterranean or Atlantic?…
Cosmopolitan City or Traditional
Mountain Village?

We’ll Take You On A Grand, Virtual Tour…

You may already know that you want to live at the beach… or right in the heart of an eclectic city where you’d never be stuck for something to do…

As I said, Spain serves up many options. And, you owe it to yourself to explore the best ones. Fortunately, you don’t have to spend time in all of these places to narrow your options… we’re going to bring them to you, via a grand, virtual tour, so you can decide the top few that make sense for your own further investigation…

Over the three days of this online event, you’ll get an in-depth picture of our top places in Spain—and, in each case, we’ll recommend whether they make sense for full or part time living… and where to look if you’re planning on buying an income-producing property…

Here are some of the places we’ll check out on our virtual tour together…

Park Guell in Barcelona, Spain
Despite being one of Europe’s top tourist cities, you can live well in Barcelona for around US$2,000 a month…
  • Barcelona. Whether you decide to live here or not, it’s impossible not to be charmed by the place The Telegraph (UK) just named “the greatest city on Earth.”

    Out of 50 nominations, Barcelona claims the top spot, thanks to its world-class architecture, thriving arts and culture scene and more than 2,500 hours of sunshine per year. – The Telegraph (UK).

    But don’t let its popularity overwhelm you. Despite being Spain’s second-biggest city, you can find your way around quickly and easily thanks to its compact, well-laid-out design… and top-class transport system.

    You’ll never be stuck for things to do. Fantastic art and architecture from
    pre-Roman to 21st century is everywhere. There are galleries,
    monuments, theaters, restaurants, shopping—all the usual stuff of cities—yet there are also lots of parks and pretty plazas, great beaches, and easy access to the beautiful Costa Brava to the north and the Costa Dorada to the south.

    Barcelona is also a completely livable city—not just for the tourists—and we’ll show you the best neighborhoods where you can be in the heart of the action… and those to go for a quiet retreat…

    You can rent in the center of Barcelona from around US$850 a month. And a couple could live here from US$2,000 a month.

    Valencia Spain Skyline
    The laid-back vibe of Valencia is reminiscent of L.A. (at a fraction the cost)…
  • Valencia. Spain’s third-largest city has many of the same attractions as Barcelona—impressive architecture, great weather, fine beaches… but has that smaller town feel. Everything is within easy reach… and there’s a welcome, slowed down vibe that’s reminiscent of L.A…Along with its hip neighborhoods and vintage bookstores, retro shops, and co-working spaces, the city’s Túria Gardens—a dry riverbed converted to a public park and known as “the lungs of the city”—has sports pitches, playground areas, and paths for long walks, runs, and cycles.Grocery prices here can be as much as 30% less than Madrid and Barcelona. You can rent a two-bed apartment from around US$800 a month… and your monthly living costs (for a renting couple) would be around US$1,700.

    Malaga, Spain Skyline
    Expats recently voted Málaga the second-best city in the world to live. It’s also one of the cheapest cities in Spain…
  • Málaga. Despite being on the sought-after Costa del Sol, Málaga is a surprisingly affordable place to live—in fact, the Andalucía region it’s part of is one of the cheapest areas of Spain.Not only do you have access to stunning Mediterranean coastline and long, sandy beaches, Málaga also offers up lots of culture in its old town, from its Roman amphitheater to its Moorish fortress (the best-preserved example in Spain), and it’s a great base for exploring the region’s national parks.Travel+Leisure recently called Málaga a “museum-goer’s paradise.” Renowned as the birthplace of Picasso, the town has an 8,000-square-foot museum in his honor. It’s also home to the first Centre Pompidou pop-up gallery outside France, hosting collections on loan from Paris.On top of all these attractions, it’s a clean and walkable city. The most recent InterNations global survey of expats named Málaga as the second-best city in the world (after Kuala Lumpur). It’s also a great place to catch an authentic flamenco show… and explore the strong tapas culture of the region.You can rent in the city from around US$750 a month… a three-course dinner for two at a nice restaurant costs around US$40… or go on a tapas-tasting journey with dishes starting as low as US$1.25…

    La Caleta beach in Cadiz, Spain
    The Costa de la Luz is one of Spain’s best-kept secrets. Locals flock here in summer to escape the crowds on the Med…
  • Cádiz and the Costa de la Luz. Tucked away in the most southern part of mainland Europe, you’ll find Cádiz province, with 300 kilometers of Atlantic coastline (making up the Costa de la Luz). Part of Andalucía, the province stands apart from the region… and indeed, the rest of Spain… with its own personality.The capital is Cádiz, one of the oldest cities in Europe. Though it welcomes cruise ships, it’s unspoiled by mass tourism—most of the tourists here come from other parts of Spain. Many visitors are attracted by its outdoor and adventure opportunities, from surfing to hiking to rock climbing.With a population of around 115,000, this is a small, manageable city… with a growing reputation among expats.You can rent a furnished, two-bed apartment in the old town here from around US$880 a month… or buy a renovated two-bed apartment, just off the Plaza de la Catedral, for US$197,200…

    Tower of Hercules, Spain
    Among Galicia’s treasures, you’ll find the Tower of Hercules—the oldest working lighthouse in the world…
  • Galicia. The Camino de Santiago runs right through this region and ends at the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. But there’s far more to Galicia than the camino…What this region lacks in weather (it will suit those looking for a cooler climate), it makes up for in its lush landscape, fairytale-like scenery, wild Atlantic beaches, and the chance to escape to a tranquil way of life with a focus on simple pleasures…Food is wholesome and seasonal. Bread and cheese are diet staples… with trucks darting about the countryside every morning to deliver fresh loaves door to door. Here’s where you’ll find the best tortilla de patata (Spanish-style omelet). A large tortilla costs around US$17 in a restaurant and will feed three hungry people…A contrast to flamenco in the south, Galicia has a strong Celtic heritage… and you’re more likely to hear bag pipes than castanets…In a nutshell, Galicia is Spain… but not as you know it. And, it has a lot to offer the right person.You can rent right in the heart of Santiago de Compostela from US$470 a month. Because of its tourist appeal, real estate in Santiago is pricy, but in smaller towns and villages, it’s easy to find apartments for less than US$200,000… family homes from around US$250,000… and, if you’re up for a renovation project, you’ll find rural properties, with land, from as little as US$20,000.All this is to give you a taste of the top cities and regions on offer. We’ll explore more areas… and dig even deeper into what day-to-day life is like in these places… during the three days of our Live and Invest in Spain Virtual Conference…But remember, no matter where you settle, you’ll have all these wonders on your doorstep… to explore at your leisure.

This Is The Best Time In 20 Years To Find
Great Value On Your Home In Spain
(Plus, The Truth About Brexit)

The Spanish property market came under close scrutiny in the years leading up to Brexit. Many hoped for a mass exodus of Brits that might lower property values…

Turns out there are no “Brexit bargains” to be had…

In fact, the number of foreign residents from the UK surged by 176% over the last year, as many previously unregistered Brits made their residency official. Once you get used to the good life in Spain, it’s hard to give up.

Long term, it’s expected the number of incoming retirees and second-home owners from the UK will drop. But there are plenty lining up to replace them…

Spain, and especially the Costa del Sol, is an established second-home market—the most popular in Europe—so you’ll also meet high populations of Italians, Germans, Dutch, and French over the summer months.

But, American buyers have an advantage today—all thanks to the “currency discount” you’ll experience in countries that operate in euros.

In 2022, we find the dollar and euro at their closest point since 2002… and this near-parity is expected to last for the year ahead…

5-Year Euro Dollar Exchange Rate (EUR USD) – Historical Chart

5-Year Euro Dollar Exchange Rate (EUR USD) - Historical Chart
The euro has weakened to near-historic lows against the U.S. dollar…

If Spain’s values were already attractive in recent years, you can save thousands of dollars coming in today…

A Spanish home listed at €100,000 would have cost you US$133,000 back in 2013… but, today, you get that €100,000 home for just US$107,000.

Whether you’re buying solely for your own use or hoping to earn rental income from your property, now is the best time in 20 years to be property shopping around Spain…

And under the guidance of my expert team, you’ll find out:

  • What to look out for when buying a property in Spain…
  • The best neighborhoods to focus on (and where to avoid)…
  • Where you’ll make the best rental yields (and what returns you can expect)…
  • How much to budget for transaction costs on your property purchase… as well as any taxes you’ll need to pay as a property owner

Best of all, you’ll have the opportunity to connect with my experts on the ground who can help you navigate your move.

You’ll be able to send your questions to them in real time, via our live chat, during the event. But we’ll also share their contact details so you can follow up with any questions that occur to you later… or when you’re ready to pay a visit in person.

During our Live and Invest in Spain Virtual Conference, our real estate experts will give you real, live property listings to give you an idea of what’s on the market—as well as investment opportunities you can act on.

To give you an idea of the price range, here are some we’ve recently spotted for sale…

Sample Property Listings:
Your Own Home In Spain From US$52,100

Spain boasts some of the best property bargains in all of Europe…
  • In Málaga province, in a charming village, a rustic townhouse full of character but in need of some renovation. The home is 95 square meters with three bedrooms and close to shops, cafés, and restaurants… and 10 miles to the beach. It’s asking US$52,100…
  • Twenty minutes from Valencia, next to a park and near a hospital, a three-bed apartment of 73 square meters for US$73,400…
  • In the heart of Segovia—a university town one hour northwest of Madrid—a 93-square-meter, three-bed apartment that could serve as a student rental or summer vacation home for US$79,800
  • A 15-minute walk from Valencia city center, a two-bed apartment of 77 square meters with lots of light. Close to public transport, supermarkets, schools, and a medical center, it’s asking US$92,500…
  • On the Costa Almería, frontline to the Mediterranean, a one-bed apartment of 50 square meters. The building has a swimming pool and is close to the village’s shops, restaurants, and health services. Price: US$95,800…
  • Tucked away in a hamlet in Galicia, a country home of 250 square meters with five bedrooms. The Camino de Santiago passes through the nearby town, so this could make an ideal traveler’s guesthouse or B&B. Price: US$117,000…
  • In the heart of Valencia’s historic old town, a 40-square-meter, one-bed apartment that’s full of character. Although it’s in a quiet location, this charming home (an ideal rental) overlooks a plaza and is close to hundreds of bars, cafés, and restaurants. Price: US$127,700…
  • Just off La Rambla del Raval in Barcelona, a one-bed apartment of 31 square meters. With easy access to all the city’s highlights, this would make a great foothold in the city that you could rent out. Price: US$132,900…
