Background Information


Sotogrande shares the Costa del Sol's Mediterranean climate, with temperatures in the area falling to 8°C during the winter and rising to 30°C during the summer. November to February may see rain but sunshine is still common, making golf a year-round activity for residents and tourists alike.


Andalusia's largest privately-owned development, Sotogrande boasts beautiful landscapes, five golf courses and an expansive nature reserve. This mix of sports, luxury marina and a view of the Rock of Gibraltar, has brought residents from across the world, including British PM Tony Blair.


Once the home of the most expensive pieces of property in Spain, Sotogrande's prestigious inhabitants have created a wealthy economy in the area that is capable of both retaining high real estate values and withstanding the wider Eurozone financial turmoil.

Insider Knowledge

"Sotogrande is nearer Gibraltar, it's got its own community. It's a marina and the villas are fantastic. A lot of people are attracted to the golf: you've got the big courses like Valderrama. The Ryder Cup was held there, for example, many years ago. Seve Ballesteros won!

"There are still many, many Brits buying property in Sotogrande, along with a lot of Scandinavian buyers, but there are very different people to the ones who buy in the French Riviera. They want to be near amenities. You can buy places here where you don't need a car to get around. It's a marriage of convenience." [More]


Moving to America: Shipping Your Belongings

Making the move across the Atlantic can be a daunting one. While American and British culture is very similar in a lot of ways, legal and financial issues are often very different. This is one of the main difficulties in emigrating. The other big headache is moving all of your possessions over the expanse of the ocean. You could of course just sell off everything you have at home, and buy new things over in the US, but this is clearly something not everyone will want to do. [More]


Australia: Where You Should Make a Real Estate Investment

by Yuri Brixenmortar 12. November 2012 10:42
In Australia, house prices have fallen, and buying a house can sometimes cost less than renting one. This is known to be the case of Carlton in Melbourne and Rushcutters Bay in Sydney.

The cost of a house in Oz decreased for three consecutive months earlier this year, the longest fall for at least a decade, although even that was less than in other industrialised nations. Celeste Tay, who serves 4cast Ltd as an economist and is located in Singapore, affirmed that last year's interest rate cuts had not been of significant benefit to the property market. This year, the largest four banks in the country raised their standard variable home-loan rates, arousing fervent grumbling that banks were not passing on cuts in the official rate by the Reserve Bank.
