Zapatero Looking for Oil Money to Save Spain Economic

Saturday, April 30th, 2011

Spain and Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Zapatero has rolled out the red carpet for Qatar’s emir, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, who promised to invest three billion Euros in the Spanish savings bank sector. He was received with the greatest honors that included a banquet at the royal palace with not only the Spanish royal family and government, but also the personalities of the directors of the two football teams Real Madrid and Barcelona as well as acting couple Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith.


During the official meeting yesterday between the Qatari emir, and Spanish Prime Minister, did they signed four important treaties on the establishment of a Spanish-Qatar’s collaboration, these contracts is about the Spanish sporting elites and the Qatar National Olympic Committee and several bilateral issues on energy, infrastructure, transport and safety .


And it strongly suggests that the Spanish government is completely obsessed with getting their hands on more oil money, it’s not just cooperation with Qatar, and it is also with Norway. Agreement with Qatar is in fact in line with Zapatero’s trip to Oslo last September, where he was during an discussion with Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg, who promised imminent investment by the Norwegian pension fund, which is among the worlds largest.


 Qatar, according to the IMF the world’s richest countries, particularly because of its huge gas and oil reserves. Qatar is in the same line as the Emirates, a country with a rapid development and major infrastructure projects. The country’s presidents and prime ministers is the Emir, and it is he who appoints the government. It has no form of political institution or political party. Zapatero has in recent months has focused on foreign investment in Spain, which have included trips to not only Qatar, but also Dubai, Singapore and China in particular.

What Can I Afford when I Buy a Property in Marbella.

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2011

As it turns out, many people have no real idea what they’re looking for when they decide it’s time to buy a house, and how much they can afford when they a property in Marbella. They know nothing about square meters, land, mortgage payments, and sometimes things such as inspections. Here’s a brief guide in how you should shop for new villas or apartment in Marbella.

The very first thing you need to do is determine how much house you can afford based on your current salary. You know how much you make going in, which is very important to keep in mind. Some real estate salespeople will put together figures and then tell you amounts that, realistically, you know are way out of your range, but you sometimes believe exactly what they say. The first time my wife and I looked at a house many years ago, our yearly total income was around 30,000 euros but the realtor told us we could afford a house as much as 200,000 euros. Don’t be fooled by numbers like that.


The next thing is to determine what you want in your property, before you start to look at anything.


If you’re thinking about buying a house, you’ll want to know more than how many bedrooms and bathrooms. Things like how many garages, regular basement or finished basement, attic and separate laundry room might be something you want to consider. Do you want a two-story or a bungalow, old Spanish stile or modern? Want to be on the Beach side or mountain side? How much space would you like between you and your neighbors? Which town will your house be in, as this will determine what your town taxes might be? Are there certain zoning laws in one town as opposed to another that determine the types of changes you want to make to your home? Is it a planned community or a different type of established community, or even a brand new housing development?


Take a lawyer to help you


And, of course, after you’ve looked at anything, if you’re considering it, you’ll want someone to inspect the house, and it should be someone you hire rather than someone the realtor hires. Even if it’s regular property, you want an inspector to look at it all and give you a full report on what’s seen. You might be purchasing property that’s has problem with the license, or, if you’re buying a house, the wiring might be problematic, or there might be signs of flooding that’s somehow been covered up. It’s best that you have a lawyer who controls everything. If you remember these few tips, your house shopping efforts will go smoother, and you’ll feel more comfortable throughout the process.
