How to sell your Spanish property in a crisis - Book review

A couple of weeks ago I got sent another book to review (we get sent a lot of books!). After reading the title I thought this was going to be an absolute waste of time as it's about a problem which seems to have no solution at the moment....

How to sell your Spanish property in a crisisSelling a Spanish property in a crisis

But there was one thing that stood out for me...the author, Nick Snelling. Nick is a very respected and knowledgeable person in the field of real estate and Spain. I really didn't think Nick would put together a load of nonsense just to sell some copies of a book.

So I cracked open a San Miguel, sat on the terrace and started reading...this is what I think of Nick's book.


And that's my review....what? You want to know more? Oh ok....

Whatever the reason for you wanting to sell your property in Spain, you really couldn't have picked a worse time to do so, although it's probably through need more than want.

Nick goes into great detail and shows that armed with the right knowledge and tools you CAN sell your property in Spain today. Even in a crashed market such as Spain's Nick shows you exactly how to do it and to give you and your property "the edge".

It's what we've always said. It's no use just having your property listed with one of the remaing estate agents. If you really want to sell your property today then you have to work it....really work it.

The great thing about this book is that Nick makes it easy for you. If you really don't know what you need to do to sell your property then you definitely need to read this. I don't want to give away information contained in his book but some of the advice he gives is very clever, things I've never even thought about. I found some of his tips when it comes to the "For sale" signs particularly eye opening. Simple things you can do which you may not have thought of and which can be very effective.

And this is what this book is full of. Great tips and advice throughout and I would recommend it to anyone who needs to sell their property in Spain during these tough times.

In today's market it's effort that is rewarded. Arm youself with Nick's book and you'll be in a much better position than most to get that property sold.

Well done Nick for writing such a clear, thorough and helpful book. It's just what was needed.

I have also read Nick's book and YES it is a "must-read"

If you haven't done what Nick suggests then bluntly you have not done everything you can to sell in these difficult times!

Hi Justin,
Very well written, and I'm going to order it, not that I want to sell a house.
I just started a blog and halfway through decided to google the phrase "Whats it really like living in Spain" and came across your blog. You may be interested in reviewing my video pages. http://prospain.wordpress.com/about
Cheers for the heads up

From the perspective of a potential purchaser, I am pretty shocked at the lack of effort made by many vendors, given the current market conditions. You'd think a bit of garden tidying, paint refreshing etc would be worth anyone's while if they really want to sell, it goes without saying in the UK but we've been really surprised at the state of some of the places we've viewed recently!
