Useful Tips When Emigrating to Spain – Houses for Sale in Madrid Spain
- Learn the language – especially if you intend to work in Spain. Learning the “lingo” will enhance your experience – going to the shops, at the doctor or dentist, when renting/buying a property, in a local restaurant/bar etc. Take a look at www.rosettastone.co.uk/learn-spanish, an online Spanish course, where you will find lots of courses and packages to choose from.
- Spend some time in your chosen area. It is always a good idea to have a few months to ‘test drive’ (single quotes) the area and be sure that you can live there. Holidaying is not the same experience as living! Sign up to a Home Exchange company such as www.homeexchange.com.
- Rent before you buy. Renting for at least 6 months will enable you to get onto your feet without the pressure of having to pay a mortgage.
- Explore the area – Once you have moved to an area, spend time getting familiar with your new area. Locate where your local supermarkets and shops are. Where are the best local restaurants/bars? What local services are available? Find out where your local doctor/dentist is located and nearest hospitals in case of emergencies.
- Make an effort to make new friends – Once you move you can start establishing a new social network, don’t just rely on your partner or family. Immerse yourself in the Spanish culture and make friends with locals as well as other expats. Mixing with people will enrich your experience and help you have a fun and a successful future in Spain.
