Make sure you have the right Health Care for your family in Spain

Tailor Made Health provide health care solutions for expats moving to Spain.
Are you thinking of moving to Spain or already here and considering Private Health cover then we would love to provide you with a quotation. Whilst budget is important and we know we will provide competitive premiums, it is also important to consider locations of any approved medical services for your area. After all there is no point taking out health insurance only to find the nearest approved medical centre in your scheme is an hour's drive. Much better to have a company that can offer medical assistance on your door step as well as numerous medical centres and hospitals close by.
A positive feature of our medical health service is reflected in our group scheme where monthly premium quotes can be further discounted by us providing the Insurer with 6 quote acceptances at one time. It is quite common that we suddenly ask you to bring forward your decision or delay joining so we can obtain an additional member to reduce the premium yet again. Our Health Cover is extremely flexible and if you feel that you do not need a complete package then units of cover can be reduced accordingly. In addition we have a very comprehensive policy which can cover you for 2 Countries as well as world wide medical insurance.

Vendors Selling in Spain. Is your Property being noticed ?

Are you serious about selling your Spanish property
The first thing that draws a property seekers eye is the photograph. So make sure the picture is worthy
Many agents in Spain are bad photographers and many upmarket properties are too secluded to be able to take a very good eye catching picture. However if you are a buyer scanning building after building on the internet property portals the eye catching element of building after building soon gets lost and poor pictures of secluded homes get ignored. People looking to buy a house or apartment are drawn to a nicely maintained eye catching design, but just as important is the surrounding area. What does the house look onto or back onto. If you as a seller bought your house because of its location and paid for the privilege of the location then it is important to showcase the position of the property. If you can capture in one picture the house the location and the surrounding scene then it will draw the eye of the discerning property buyer. Here is an example of what can be achieved click here to see this Sotogrande Golf & Sea View Home In todays hard fought Spanish property market if you need to sell your property you have to be a step ahead of the competition. Its common sense that eye catching photographs are the key first stage of attracting purchasers. The importance is to initially draw people to the area after all there are hundreds of locations and communities along the Costa del Sol. If you are to market a property in a great location then you must capture in one picture the property and the essence of where the property sits.
People who are close to the sea with a sea view can now have a photograph of their home encompassing the surrounding area, beach, countryside,river, golf course or forest can be shown nearby. Now with new technology even a house surrounded by trees can be pictured with the golf course in view.
Tailor Made estate agents know that the right photograph on international property portal such as Rightmove Overseas will increase traffic to your featured property tenfold. Yes there maybe several agents showing a picture of your house and it shows up in search to a handful of people each day. The same people searching will be seeing 30 homes in 10 different locations within 10 miles of you. However if your house is say .5km from the 3rd best golf course in Spain and its is photographed with the same golf course behind it and the sea beyond, then those searching will say 'that's the style of house I love and look I can see that fantastic golf course very close by and the Mediterranean also very near'. Now that is an impact no one can argue with.
Many Estate Agents are old school and shy away from Technology. However they are nice guys you have known them a long time and maybe they even sold you the property years ago so despite their lack of ingenuity you have instructed them to sell your property anyway. Nothing wrong with that although when choosing more agents make sure the agency brings something new to the table beyond simply having a website and being based in your location. So how can Tailor Made estate agency provide you with a photograph or even a video that will encompass the home the grounds and the attractions surrounding the property. The answer is simple and summed up in this photograph
This is how we are showcasing vendors homes far better than our competitors.
This week we have arranged pictures for vendors in Marbella, Algeciras, San Roque golf, and San Pedro de Alcantara have also provided other agents out of our area with photographs for their own use.
If you want to improve your chances of selling then show off your property properly and we can organize some wonderful visuals.

Living and Loving golf in Spain

Well lets face it the sun does shine a lot
More and more couples are looking to take advantage of low cost air travel and play golf in Spain and Portugal with regular trips to their favorite locations. Our golf club see's its fair share of extremely good competitive golfers who have been coming and playing in Spain for many years and finally want to commit to more golf in their favorite location not to mention a wonderful championship course.
There have been so many people inquiring in the last 12 months that this year that the Golf Club have created a more user friendly International Membership to entice them to join the club and many are doing just that. I look back fondly at my golf days in Dorset getting up at 6.30am just to get a tee time and making sure I had my woolen beanie and the single fur lined glove just to keep your hands warm. Not any more, these days on this western fringe of the Costa del Golf if it looks like a few spits of rain we delay until tomorrow when we know that the sun will shine again. The new members under their 6 month membership come and go with the seasons and many take a month at a time before the draw of family takes them back to the Country of origin.
As people become familiar with the club and its members friendships are formed and people suddenly start to book their golf trips in line with club events when they know the rest of the gang are more likely to be there. Some great rivalries materialize and tournaments then provides some great social aspects including the 'after golf' when that couple of drinks on the terrace turns to a few more and a few more. What about when you return home to rain and wind can you forget what you have just left behind. Its hard with all this social media particularly if you are constantly reminded that life in the sun goes on
In Spain we are also seeing quite a few families with talented golf children who look to take a gap year after GCSE's or A levels so that they can practice golf with very little weather interruption. The whole family are often involved and once again find club golf life very enjoyable. So enjoyable that they start to look at the options to continue the golfing lifestyle once the gap year ends.
Club golf in the sun becomes very addictive. I love my coffee and bacon roll in the sun on the terrace pre-warmup followed by 18 holes on well manicured golf course wearing shorts. Our club always runs 2 roll up competitions per week on Tuesdays and Thursdays and fortnightly there is either the monthly medal or the club Ranking competition, throw in a main club event maybe once a month and there is plenty of competitive golf to play. I should also mention the inter-club events as we play all over the coast.
For myself I have not retired yet and need to work. Having said that estate agents in Spain are not the busiest of people in these economic times but we do work very flexible hours so taking a morning off for golf in the week is always a possibility and maybe knocking off at 3pm for some social golf. Very often we like to play the course with a client who maybe seeking a golf front villa or apartment. No point trying to sell an apartment until the client decides the course is good enough.
In our area we have 7 courses all within 7 minutes drive of each other and once you get involved with golf locally you will meet members from other local clubs who will sign you in to play their course at a fraction of the wrack rate. Of the 7 courses 5 are in Spains top 10 so we are very spoilt for choice here. These include Valderrama, La Resrva, Real Club Sotogrande, San Roque New Course & San Roque Old course. Other local courses include Almenara's 27 holes, Alcaidesa beachfront course and La Canada golf. The wonderful Finca Cortesin is within 15 minutes drive.
This morning I met a client at the golf club and whilst there introduced him to a number of members some who had just arrived back in Spain and a few that were departing having spent most of the summer here. These people were all members who had taken the 6 month option but some were already looking to maybe upgrade their membership to full time and spend more time here than back in their country of origin.
My golf club is the San Roque golf club and whilst the majority of members are Brits and Irish there is also a great mix of other Europeans and a few Spanish. The atmosphere is always friendly and very few play and dash off immediately as there is always a drink while waiting the results of the match.
I am happy to chat to anyone thinking about Spain Golf and the logistics of a second home in the sun. One thing I do know if you make the commitment you will not regret it and I still say 10 years on that moving here was the best decision I have ever made.
Isnt it time you discovered the stunning western fringe of the Costa del Sol
