For many families looking to buy property on the Costa Blanca, it may seem increasingly attractive to simply sell up in the United Kingdom and move out to Spain permanently. After all, with Sterling's value plummeting, the Euro is not the cheaper option it once appeared to be; while it is still relatively easy to buy property on the Costa Blanca for a very reasonable price, mortgages have increased by around 30% on average, so due to the recession, investing in a second home will be a lot less feasible to an increasingly large group of Britons.
While this may kill the dream for many, there are some of you out there who may take the massive step of moving your family from this grey and unpleasant land to sunny Spain. This, of course, is not a decision to be taken lightly especially with a family, so here are some useful tips on making sure your children are able to have a good education in a foreign country. When buying property on the Costa Blanca, and with a family, your first consideration should of course be your children's education; there is no point finding a dream home, relocating the family, only to discover your children are deeply unhappy or receiving a sub-standard level of education.
