Property Sales.
We sell property from Tarifa to Ayamonte and inland to Ronda on the Costa de la Luz.  We also sell in the Costa Calida and the Costa Almeria.  All property valuations on the Costa de la Luz are FREE.  We run a health check on your property before it is placed on the market to identify any potential problems with paperwork which is  FREE and we advertise your property completely FREE of charge on our internationally recognised website.  In keeping with our Ethical Estate Agency Programme we charge commission* to the seller only making your property more attractive to a potential buyer. Our website is linked to all the major international property portals which would charge you to advertise but with Cadizcasa your advert migrates FREE to give you the maximum possible visibility to your potential buyers.

 
Want to Sell Your Property? Not Sure About the Legal Position or The Price?
Cadizcasa
Wednesday, 08 June 2011

You should look to your estate agent to not only give you guidance on a good and realistic selling price for your property in the current market but also to clarify and set out the legal position regards your property paperwork. The legality of properties in Spain has claimed many column inches both here and in the UK press over the past few years and it is a fact that the sale price for a house is directly affected by any legal issues so once you know the position accurately you should be well placed to market and sell your property.

 
The Rental Dilemma
Cadizcasa
Wednesday, 11 May 2011

When you buy a holiday property abroad there is always a mental plan and time span for that property.  At Cadizcasa we have often heard “We will keep it until the kids are old enough to go on their own holidays then sell”,  “We will keep it until we retire then sell” or “We will keep it until we have seen all we want of Spain and then sell”.  At one time these were good plans but the world economic crisis has thrown a spanner in the works for many people who bought a holiday home and have reached the end of their 5 or 10 year plan for it.  Selling is taking longer than it used to, prices are low and buyers are difficult to find.

The obvious option is to rent the place out and wait for the tide to turn and things to improve but I find a lot of people are really scared of renting long term or doing holiday lets. They tell me horror stories about people who have rented and had problems and how they have been warned by friends about the legal dangers of renting in Spain. Our advice is, If you are thinking of renting your property in the Costa de la Luz, don't listen to stories come and talk it through first with us at Cadizcasa Estate Agents.

So much has happened since our last update, it’s difficult to know where to start!

Community Action:  “Giving something back to the community”

We’ve really stepped up our voluntary work within the community, thanks largely to the efforts of our staff who give up their free time to set up and run our current projects. It is clear that in these seemingly endless days of recession, there is a great deal that people can do to help each other out.

At the moment we offer a free CV service and advice service for local people who might be looking to go abroad to work or to live.

We’re working with a youth group in Cádiz to help them engage with English in a different way.

There are plans afoot for celebrations in Plaza Mina in Cádiz to celebrate the “international book day” in May; we’ll have a stand there full of British goodies to share, so far thoughts include flapjacks, fairy cakes and the like, we’re also hoping for some beer tasting!

We’d also like to set up an international quiz night here in Cádiz.

If you’re interested in getting involved in these events, please do get in touch call 956 22 14 26 and ask to speak to Simon or email me at This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it  

Nearer the time we’ll let you know the dates so you won’t miss out on any of the fun!

Teacher Training: “The part time course is back!”

Teaching is becoming a more and more popular choice for “ex pats” living in the area, it’s a great way to earn some extra money and perhaps more importantly it’s a great way to become connected with your community and use your English speaking skills. We run the international recognized Trinity Certificate in TESOL (see www.trinitycollege.co.uk/site/?id=201  for more info) full time in the summer and this year we are delighted to report that the part time course is back. Thanks to popular demand, the part time course is kicking off in October.

In other exciting developments, we are offering the Trinity Diploma in TESOL for teachers with more experience. (www.trinitycollege.co.uk/site/?id=202 )

For more info on all our teacher training courses do have a look at our website www.activelanguage.net and then call if you have any further questions. Just so you know, both the summer courses and the part time course are filling up; don’t leave it too late to apply! We’re looking forward to hearing from you soon.

TEFL del Sur: “A teachers’ association run by teachers for teachers.”

We are also really happy to offer a home whenever necessary to TEFL del Sur, a teachers’ association run by teachers for teachers throughout Cádiz province. The association holds regular meetings and workshops providing the best, most relevant professional development available. So far the road show has been to Cádiz, El Puerto de Santa Maria and Tarifa, for upcoming events check out the blog (tefldelsur.edublogs.org) or the facebook page  (www.facebook.com/groups/207522516005783/)  If you’re working as a teacher in any context or are thinking of becoming one, TEFL del Sur is a great way in.

Whether it’s through Community Action, teacher training or TEFL del Sur, hopefully we’ll see you soon. In the meantime for anything related please do feel free to contact us by phone, email or carrier pidgeon!

Dear ChiFRA member,
We at Active Language are delighted to be involved with the Chiclana Foreign Residents Association and are looking forward to playing an active part in the association.

We share many of the same values and beliefs as the association, especially regarding the promotion of good relations with other members of the community and encouraging integration into Spanish society.

Many people who move to the area may find it difficult to get to know well the people they live alongside. Finding work in a foreign country when you do not speak the language is difficult.  However, the very thing that you think holds you back might be the key to opening the door to a rewarding new career - the ability to speak English.
