Eye on Spain Newsletter 09 September 2008

Buenos dias 

The summer season is officially over! No more driving around for hours looking for parking to get to the beach, no more long queues at the supermarket and dare I say it, cheaper prices in the shops!!

I don't mean to offend anyone but it does get exceptionally busy around these parts during July and August. It's quite a relief for us that live here when things get back to normal.

Anyway, a couple of major points before I introduce our articles this week

This month is "Rentals Month". We've got loads of information to give you all about renting out your property or renting a property yourself. We're kicking it off today with a must-read article from Maria de Castro. And then on Thursday I'm sending out a very interesting video for those who need more rental bookings!!

Secondly, I am in desperate need of some assistance. We have a job opening for an office admin person to start ASAP. You can read more about it on the EOS blog.

Now on with today's articles. Remember that you can also submit your own articles for publication in the newsletter and website.
