Murcia Villas were delighted to assist A Place in the Winter Sun on their visit to Murcia last week and provide not one but two houses for their television programme. TV Director, Luke Byrne, personally thanked Director Fiona James for her assistance with the programme after the clients had a “negative reaction” to the first property they visited in Mazarron through another agent.
The filming schedule had to be reviewed and another property found for the clients. The clients did eventually see a property that they really liked through Murcia Villas, in a village close to Los Alcazares and decided to put forward an offer. Negotiations are ongoing.
Not only did Murcia Villas supply two properties for the film shoot, but Jasmine Harman and Luke Byrne visited Hugh and Fiona James in their own home to record an interview on “living in Murcia” for the programme.
“The programme will be televised in March as A Place in the Winter Sun with Jasmine Harman and we look forward to seeing our clients´ properties on the television,” said Hugh James, Director. “The interview with Jasmine was a great thrill, and we were delighted to assist them with the programme and promoting the benefits of living in Murcia.”
“A Place in the Sun is certainly one of the most popular television lifestyle programmes, we were really pleased that they decided to come back to Spain after a few years of absence. The Research assistant told Fiona that they now have confidence in the Spanish housing market and that they can promote properties in Spain to their clients as a good buy!” Hugh continued.
This is Jasmine´s second visit to Spain this year (2012) as she was in Valencia earlier in January to look for a large property for different client.
“We really feel that this will be a boost for the Murcia area and promote confidence in the property market here,” said Fiona James, “with the positive News that the new airport at Corvera will be opening this year and prices levelling out there really has never been a better time to invest in this region of Spain.”
Prices have fallen an average of 40% in Murcia since May 2007 and there are plenty of opportunities to pick up a really good property at an excellent price. This is coupled with the Spanish Governments decision to continue to keep purchase tax at 4% on newly built properties and the added factors of the Paramount Theme Park and new international airport in the area. Murcia certainly has a lot to offer both the investor and a family who are looking for a new lifestyle in the sunshine.
