An Expat Talks about Moving to Jerez de la Frontera, Spain

What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

Jerez de la Frontera

Name three things that you wish you had brought and three you wish you had left at home.

My car but I probably would have wished I'd left it at home if I'd brought it. My satellite system. I can't think of anything that I wished I left behind!

What advice would you give someone preparing to move to your area about the actual move, choosing a neighborhood and finding a home?

Learn Spanish before you come or if you come without much knowledge of the language employ the services of a good relocation company. Visited the area a few times at different times of the year. If you are not 100% sure exactly where you want to live, rent for 6 months first.

What type of housing do you live in? Is this typical for most expats in your area?

We live in a two storey house about 15 mins walk from the centre of town. Expats in Jerez do not live all in one area, most of them probably don't know of any other expats living here or exactly how many that do actually live here. There are people living in apartments in the centre and others living in country houses on the outskirts.

How did you choose your neighborhood and find your home or apartment?

We had 4 or 5 important requirements and at the time there were very few properties that met all of them without requiring some sort of reformation or other but eventually we found the ideal place for us. Luckily, it was within our budget!

Are your housing costs higher or lower than they were in your home country? What is the average cost of housing there?

In the 4 and a half years we have lived here house prices have sky rocketed. I have lost contact with the prices in the UK but I still think you get a lot more property for you money here. A new 2/3 bed flat will cost between 180,000 & 220,000 depending on what part of Jerez.
