John Goldacres Introduction for the Latest Newsletter

This is John Goldacres introduction for the latest newsletter

Well summer is on us in the Canary Islands and its hot good job we have some of the best beaches in Fuerteventura to Relax and Unwind on. Been a recent flurry of activity on Vista Mar with our first clients taking title, this really has turned out to be a fabulous development pool is now completed, gym fitted out, a really 5 star resort.

I travel to Greece on the 5th to visit our office there but first a two week break to be enjoyed first.

The property market still remains sticky .. Its like walking in mud .. still hard work with the euro to sterling exchange rate ranging anything from 1.15 – 1.18 to the GBP but 1.15 / 1.16 is where we have seen the most of the activity since our last newsletter.

Mortgages are still being granted although the banks are more stringent in their underwriting and the valuation companies under instruction from the Bank of Spain to be cautious in their valuations.

But it is not all doom and gloom as the press would still have us believe, inquires are on the increase both in the Canary Islands and Greece, there are still some great priced properties available, see our recent selection of one bedrooms below and there is a more positive feel generally amongst people.

Since our last news Fuerteventura has seen the introduction of regular services from Easy Jet and Monarch ( link these two to the blog ) so flights are becoming once again an issue of non importance I researched flights with Easy Jet on the 5th December and returning on the 19th from the UK and the total was £81 return, which was excellent. So those that thought access was becoming more difficult it shows in todays world things can change in an instant and with over 45,000,000 million euros being spent on the airport in Fuerteventura this was a definite change that was to happen. Please also remember if you have flight only GoldAcre Estates can assist you in finding your perfect accommodation to stay during your search for your Dream Home.

So safe low cost flights, Happy hunting and of course at GoldAcre Estates we are always on hand to help and advise with any questions you may have.

Huge telescope opens in Spain's Canary Islands

If you wanted proof of how unpoluted the skies over the canaries are then how about 130,000 euros worth of faith in our clean climate

The Gran Telescopio Canarias, one of the the world's largest telescopes is seen at the Roque de los Muchachos Observatory in the Canary Island of La Palma, Spain, Friday July 24, 2009. The euro130 million (US$179 million) telescope, designed to take advantage of pristine, clear skies at the Roque de los Muchachos observatory atop the Atlantic island of La Palma, was inaugurated Friday.

La Palma, Canary Islands — One of the world's most powerful telescopes has opened its shutters for the first time to begin exploring faint light from distant parts of the universe.

Planning for the telescope began in 1987 and has involved more than 1,000 people from 100 companies. It was inaugurated Friday by King Juan Carlos.

The Canary Islands Astrophysics Institute, which runs the telescope, says it will capture the birth of stars, study characteristics of black holes and decipher some of the chemical components of the Big Bang.

Cost of new housing falls in Spain but the Canary Islands is less affected

Canary Islands Real Estate, Fuerteventura Tenerife, Lanzarote and Gran Canaria property better than mainland Spain.

The cost of new housing fell 2% in the first quarter of the year compared with the same period in 2008, the first annual decrease since the property market bubble started to deflate in mid-2007.

According to data published today by the National Institute of Statistics (INE), the price of housing as a whole fell by 7.6% between January and March, the biggest decrease since prices started to fall in the second quarter of 2008. The main reason for the fall is still the slump in prices in the second-hand-property market, brought on by owners selling just to clear bank mortgage commitments, but it is the first time that new housing in Spain has also seen a decrease.

House prices fell in all the autonomous communities in the first quarter, with the biggest drops being registered in Catalunya (13.7%), Comunidad de Madrid (11.2%), Basque Country(10.8%), Navarra (10.1%), Aragón (9.7%), Balearic Islands (8.1%) and La Rioja (8%).

Below national average drops were registered in Cantabria (7.2%), Comunidad Valenciana (5.2%), Canary Islands (4.3%), Andalucía (3.9%), Castilla and León (3.3%), Castilla-La Mancha (2.5%), Extremadura (2.2%), Asturias (1.8%), Murcia (1.6%) and Galicia (0.5%).

Queen Elizabeths Maiden Voyage To Include The Canary Islands

Like the regal Queen Elizabeth I, Cunard has begun construction on what promises to be the premier cruising vessel on the high seas. She is scheduled for her maiden voyage in October of 2010, joining the Queen Mary 2 and Queen Victoria as the most famous ocean liners in the world.
Queen Elizabeth will feature the unique Cunard traditions, together with all the modern day luxuries Cunard’s guests have come to expect. In addition, some exciting new features will give the vessel her own sense of style and personality.
Named after the first Queen Elizabeth, one of Cunard’s greatest ships, the new Queen Elizabeth will reflect her predecessor in interior grandeur, décor and style. Art Deco features will pay homage to the original Queen Elizabeth and will allow the new ship to reflect an elegant era of travel. The extraordinary new vessel features 12 decks and carries more than 2,000 passengers.In addition to the extensive Cunard onboard entertainment program, Queen Elizabeth will offer some unique strands such as country house parties at sea, evening piano sing-alongs and period dancing, from traditional ballroom to the jitterbug and the jive, all within the setting of this 21st-century ship. The ship will also reflect this great liner through artwork, memorabilia and its very own “Yacht Club.”
Queen Elizabeth will depart on her Maiden Voyage on 12 October 2010—a voyage which sold out in a record-breaking 29 minutes in April 2009. This 13-night celebration will leave from Cunard’s home port of Southampton and will call at Vigo (for Santiago de Compostela), Lisbon, Seville (Cadiz), Gran Canaria (Las Palmas), Tenerife (Santa Cruz de Tenerife, an overnight call), La Palma (Santa Cruz de La Palma) and Madeira (Funchal).
