Blog 58 New Reality 1

Blog 58 New reality 1

Here we begin “the new reality” of my blog.

A reality conditioned by the circumstances that we are going to live

And that we all already know too well!

For many very bad, for others regular, and for a few very good!

It all depends on the “COLOR of the glass with which you look”

5f561884415dfc49775415544cfe81b7 1

DEPENDS ON THE CRYSTAL SO YOU LOOK …

For my part I am tired of all the crap that surrounds us and as you will have seen in previous blogs, I don’t want to talk about it anymore.

I AM REALLY FULL of what I have to live…

Even soccer is horrible!

blog 58 new reality 1

STUPID, NO?

At least for me it has lost the passion it had, I can no longer find emotion!

Or will it be me?

That I have become very disbelieving?

Could be….

Anyway….

So I have decided to blog differently in terms of content:

MUCH MORE POSITIVE …

frases motivadoras clara 9 c73dd0c0 1587x2245

ALWAYS POSITIVE!

That helps us to forget a bit about all the bad things that we are going through ……

I will dedicate a first part of it to talking about this beautiful place where I live that is Altea, with its shops, restaurants and various services.

In this way I contribute with my little grain of sand to help those poor merchants and entrepreneurs who are having a very difficult time because of the situation we have had to live.

In each blog I will try to give my vision of each place so that you can get to know them and so together we can somehow help those people to get out of the well,

ALSO JULIO IGLESIAS KNOWS IT!

although I am afraid that natural selection will be very hard!

Only by working very hard and doing things very well will a few succeed.

Unfortunately many are going to stay on the road.

Attention! Hard times are coming!

For my part, I am preparing myself mentally

TRAINING MY MIND…

And physically,

como prepararme mentalmente competicion importante

TRAINING MY BODY….

to cope with this post-war that is coming upon us, and to which we will have no choice but to live,

If we are lucky and we are not taken by any of the infinite things that can happen or take their toll on the very situation we are experiencing …

I summarize my recipe very briefly:

Very healthy and as NATURAL food as possible (no processed and chemical)

Eat too little (gluttons refrain)

Always be on the move (no sofas, please)

And the most important. POSITIVE ATTITUDE…

blog 58 new reality 1

ALWAYS POSITIVE

And a little tip: laughing as much as you can, happiness and fun prolong life … (at least if they don’t prolong it they make it more bearable)

YOU HAVE TO LAUGH A LOT, BUT BEWARE OF THE GUM!

If you follow my advice, we will get older, but NEVER old!

IT’S ME

READY?

LET’S GO THERE!

*********************************************************************************************************************

In this blog 58 new reality 1 I will call this first section:

ABEL’S RECOMMENDATIONS

In it I will try SINCERELY and based on my taste (which you already know does not have to coincide with yours) to recommend the special sites, and that within their segment and according to my criteria, they do the best they know and can.

Restaurants, gastrobars, shops, hotels, supermarkets, cafes, bakeries, etc. etc.

In each blog I will try to touch a certain segment and illustrate a prominent site in that sector so that you can later draw your own conclusions regarding the service they offer and its quality.

My idea originally is to only talk about Altea but it is likely that when I have written several blogs I will run out of sites, so I either expand the area or change my blog!

We’ll see….

***********************************************************************************************************************

We started with the hotel sector, which is perhaps one of the most affected by confinement because they have been forced to close and have now reopened with many restrictions.

THERE ARE NO PLACE LIKE THIS ONE IN ALTEA

The first I want to talk about and because I consider it very important and a benchmark in this area that I manage, is the SH Villa Gadea Hotel.

blog 58 new reality 1

FANTASTIC HOTEL!

Great 5-star hotel run by my good friend Enrique Mas Cassiel who carry on it wonderfully.

The only bad luck for him is he is fan and blogger of the Mallorca Football Club, otherwise he is very lucky to be a great person, worker and have that great place to bring it to a successful hotel.

This is a very difficult task in these times, with very little foreign tourism and a little more than national tourism.

Having a coffee with him, he told me that they are at 40-45% occupancy during the week and 80% during the weekend, which is perfect because they could not bear more occupation by the staff they have.

Therefore there is no complaint …

I explained to him that I have not been in Benidorm since before the pandemic, (and that I do not plan to go if I do not have any formalities to carry out) but that two different people have told me that it is absolutely dead….

Logical thing because it has a cheap tourism of masses (the one of the bracelet to 150 € the week all inclusive will not return).

That is a tourism that for the moment will not return … and we will see later what happens …

In Altea we have a better level, so there are more people, which reaffirms my theory that we must bet on raising quality in all segments and sectors, providing a service that is in line with the public that comes.

RECEPCION

The problem for many is that they cannot do because they have no idea how to do it….

What are all those people going to do? Will they return to the country life?.

Time will tell!

In the lobby bar they have had to remove chairs to respect the distance between tables of 2 meters, in the bar they have only left three chairs for the same thing, and in the breakfast service they cannot do self-service so they have to put two shifts and the service is pre-packaged and with the assistance of waiters, which has increased the costs for extra and more personal work.

But anyway, it is what we have to live.

And if someone doesn’t want it that way, stay at home!

The hotel has 202 rooms:

1 presidential suite

10 junior suite

9 junior family suite

24 de luxe

84 superior v.mar

60 superior

14 standard

In addition. the staff is super polite, helpful and very attentive.

It is a very nice place and the stay in it resembles a city hotel and not a beach one.

I recommend it

LET’S GO TO THE REAL ESTATE PART OF THE BLOG 58 NEW REALITY 1:

I tell you that the real estate market in Altea is moving.

There are clients especially Spanish and the occasional foreigner people viewing properties.

I have had quite a lot of work this week (I had a hard time finishing the blog on time, almost on the gong)

What is really difficult is closing operations …

Why?

Because we have all been installed in the head that now everything is dead and we can get a bargain!

A gross mistake, because unless the seller is hanged, he is not willing to sell at the price offered.

A fight of the titans!

We’ll see who wins …

I don’t know, but I do know who loses …

The real estate agents that we are in the middle.

Hahaha (I laugh for not crying)

1200x675xghu8plztm1hevfkya31ct05wdhtcnmu4xne64ic0w64uk8bts2mzvvirxwkf1ak.jpg.pagespeed.ic.meme

WOULD BE A REAL ESTATE?

I am going to refer to concrete facts so that you can draw your own conclusions:

The College of Real Estate Property Registrars has made a report on the sale of homes in May:

1,204 homes were sold in the province of Alicante, 65% less than in May 2019, when 3,463 operations were carried out.

During the month of May 2020, the sale of homes registered in the Valencian Community fell by 63.7% if we compare it with the same month of 2019.

It is the second autonomous community where this type of operation falls the most, behind only the Canary Islands, standing ten points above the national average fall (-53.1%).

“In Spain, we went from 46,000 operations in May 2019 to less than 22,000 now,” they point out in a press release.

If we count the total number of sales of all types of real estate (not only homes), the result in Spain is a new record, going from 94,000 operations in May last year to 38,500 now. the decrease in relation to the same month of 2019 is 59%.

In this section, the Valencian region (4,916 transactions) presents the seventh steepest decline, still standing almost five points above the national average.

As for the mortgages made in the Valencian Community in the month of May of this year, they were 3,979 and represent a drop of 26.4% in relation to the same month of 2019.

It is almost the same result obtained by Spain as a whole, where the average reflects a decrease of 25.8%.

“If we look only at home mortgages, the difference with the national average is three points. While Spain falls on average by -24.8%, the Valencian Community – with 2,786 registered – does so at a rate of -27 , 4%, registering the ninth largest decrease “, they point out ..

In general, and for the moment, the impact of the state of alarm on mortgages is being much more moderate than on sales.

In Spain we went from more than 47,000 mortgages in May 2019 to 35,000 now.

Only in mortgages on homes, we fell from 33,500 operations to just over 25,000 this past May.

But don’t forget that most of those signed in May were approved using the risk criteria from before the pandemic.

Now banks have changed the strategy for fear of the looming crisis and are denying the majority.

Anyway friends,

So far I have limited myself to giving very relevant data, now I leave my personal opinion in an audio, especially to owners who want to sell soon.

 

Now the property of the week for the blog 58 new reality 1 is:

Brand new luxury villa in Galera del Mar with a very special situation.

Judge for yourselves by the photos:

And you will say: “this Abel is crazy, at the beginning of the blog he says that he will be very positive and the reports he gives are disastrous”

And I tell you that you are right!

The only way to be well in these moments is to be as Piazzola says in tango: “I know that I am piantao, piantao, don’t you see that the moon is going, rolling through Callao?”

Author’s note: translation of the Argentine language “piantao” = crazy…. and Callao is one of the most famous street in Buenos Aires

And today’s unsolicited advice:

FOLLOW IT!

Have a nice weekend.
