To see Paris and … stunned by French housing

A huge number of people dream of visiting the city of love and romance, the city of the Eiffel Tower, royal palaces and the European Disneyland. Here I am from among those. Only I, in my usual manner, decided not just to visit the capital of France, as an ordinary tourist, but to live there. Preferably at least six months. Better yet, a year.

With this firm intention, I bought a ticket, and within a couple of weeks, the board of the French national airline Airfrance brought me to Charles De Gaulle’s huge airport with comfort, delicious food and free wine, from where my misadventures began.

Back in the homeland, it was decided to finally decide on the choice of housing in which I will spend this Paris year, already being directly in Paris. And in the first days, while I will search, book an apartment through Airbnb. Since nothing special was needed for these early days, I chose a small studio apartment under the roof in one of the old houses in Montmartre. In such, as is commonly believed, poor artists settled, then gaining greatness.

A week in such a studio cost me 500 euros. And it seemed to me that it is very expensive. But I decided not to spoil my upcoming adventure with negative thoughts. Moreover, it was expected upon arrival to rent another apartment, much better and cheaper. Dreaming. Continue reading

How we decided to buy an apartment on the Costa Daurada

There were several reasons for this. Firstly, I learned about the real-estate crisis in 2008–2013, which has hit a price crisis. in this country. It continues now, although, in fairness, we note that prices are no longer as “tasty” as before, when apartments could be bought at half price from their real value.

Secondly, the number of sunny days at any point on the Mediterranean coast is more than 300 days, for our person it is just a paradise.

Thirdly, I realized that it is not necessary to buy a penthouse on the seashore for a couple of hundred thousand euros – there are cheaper options in small towns some distance from the coast at a price 2-3 times cheaper.

Fourth, here you can take a mortgage even to a non-resident at a ridiculous interest. I will add to these reasons the normal infrastructure in the cities of the coast, safety and delicious cuisine. And then my mother-in-law died, leaving a 3-room apartment in the center of Yekaterinburg, which can be sold. In general, they knocked out their resources, multiplied by a huge desire to buy a house in Spain, and began to search. Continue reading

How I bought apartments in Sunny Beach in Bulgaria

Having received such information from relatives, we examined the site of the developer, who was also a seller of apartments, and contacted the sales manager. After that, they assessed their financial capabilities and decided to purchase two-room apartments in the Sweet Homes 3 complex, which is under construction on the 4th line. The contract was signed in 2014, and the object was commissioned in 2016. It was then that I came to Bulgaria for the first time and issued real estate rights.

How we chose apartments
Choosing the right apartment was very easy. The site of the developer has complete information about the price, area and layout of the apartment. In 3D mode, you can see how the surrounding area looks. We chose apartments on the 4th floor overlooking the pool and the main entrance to the complex. It is worth saying that all apartments are decorated in a single design style, equipped with furniture and household appliances (TV, microwave, air conditioning, refrigerator). Continue reading
