The 3 Spain Relocation Steps

At Move to Malaga, we understand that everybody needs differing levels of support. For this reason, we can offer you a relocation package specifically tailored to your requirements.

Relocation Step One

Firstly, request our Initial Relocation Questionnaire that we ask you to sit down and take time to consider the answers. Your answers allow us to evaluate your own personal requirements.

Relocation Step Two

Secondly, once we have reviewed your Initial Relocation Questionnaire we schedule a video consultation to discuss your plans in greater detail and to let you know how we will make your relocation process smoother and more enjoyable.

Relocation Step Three

Thirdly, we agree on the best relocation support for your needs and start to plan your relocation with your own dedicated consultant. We then get on to creating your Plan of Action* and the fun begins!

Spain Relocation Packages

Our Relocation Packages are ideal for individuals, couples, and families. They are suitable for you if you have time to visit yourself. However, if you are not able to visit properties before you relocate and wish to have your home secured prior to your arrival in Spain ask about our VIP options. Additionally, our packages are extremely popular with people who prefer a more personal, handheld approach,  particularly when attending appointments for official procedures when a good level of spoken Spanish is required for a positive and successful outcome.

All our Relocation Packages include personal assistance when attending appointments such as NIE & Residency applications and other essential Spanish paperwork procedures. Most importantly, you benefit from the assistance of your own personal translator when required for such occasions.

As an extra, our VIP video service is the best way to secure an ideal rental property as soon as it becomes available. Good rental properties rent out quickly! But we’ll be on hand to view and secure it for you.

Please note, our relocation packages include our fees for visiting 2 or 3 properties on your behalf, taking honest photos and videos, and basically being your eyes and ears here in the Malaga and Costa del Sol region. We will work together to draw up a suitable shortlist of properties to visit for you. Additional VIP video service property visits are available at a cost of €250* per property (*Subject to location. Contact us for more details).

Please be advised that we have a limited number of Spain relocation packages available each month. The sooner we start working together, the more successful and enjoyable your experience of moving to Spain will be.

Factors to consider when deciding where to live in Malaga.

Let’s look at the factors to consider when deciding where to live in Malaga.

This process can be applied to searching for a property to rent or to buy. The importance placed on each factor will vary depending on your own personal situation. No two relocations nor property searches are the same.

Firstly, let’s consider searching for a permanent (rather than holiday) property.

It goes without saying that the most important factor when deciding where to live in Malaga, and anywhere else in the world, is: Location. Location. Location.

However, other factors influence the suitability of the ideal location. These include:

  • Seasonal variations
  • Accessibility and available infrastructure
  • Education
  • Budget

Let’s look at each of these factors before getting back to the actual search process.

Malaga and the Costa del Sol are popular, chic and cosmopolitan destinations for holidaymakers and expats. Many families and couples settle here for the great sunny weather, friendly lifestyle, fresh cuisine, culture and amazing Andalusian festivals.
