With the City's annual bonus season upon us, London's banks aren't - rightly or wrongly - flavour of the month. Over in Spain though, if you're in the hunt for a "discounted" property, it's the banks you should be wooing...
The Spanish repossession market is larger that most, thanks to the bullish development plans embarked upon by builders in the mid-2000s. But countless new homes have ended up in the hands of the banks, who are now keen to offload them. In theMarch 2011 issue of A Place in the Sun magazine we talk to companies set up specifically to help you tap into this sector of the market and, if you're clever, buy a property at below market value.
One place you'll be able to meet agents offering bank-owned Spanish homes, as well as property from all over the globe, is at the forthcoming A Place in the Sun Live exhibition - for a taste of who and what will be there see the exhibitor list.
