    Property Prices

    Generally, property prices are set to rise in Spain in the coming year. According to a report produced by the reputable financial firm JP Morgan, it is predicted that Spain’s economy is due to rise by 1% in 2016 and estate agents are in agreement with this prediction. The property market figures for 2014/15 showed an increase compared to figures released for 2013, and this trend is set for 2016, all good news for those planning to relocate to Spain.

    There are a huge range of properties for sale in Spain, prices vary according to size, property type and area. As a guide you can buy a 3 bedroomed apartment for as little as £20,000, with more substantial detached family homes with swimming pools, costing in the region of £250,000.

    Education and Schools

    You will of course want to ensure that your children receive the best education possible whilst living in Spain. Generally, education provision is of a good standard, with a range of schools to choose from. Education in Spain is regulated by the Ley Orgánica de Educación (LOE, Organic Law of Education). It is compulsory and free for all children aged between 6 and 16 years, and is supported by the national government, together with the governments of each of the country’s 17 autonomous communities.

    The Spanish Bachillerato is the post-16 stage of education, comparable to the A Levels/Higher (Scottish) in the UK, the French Baccalaureate in France or the International Baccalaureate.
