¡Buenos días! or ¡Buenas tardes! if you´ve already eaten. Hope you are all keeping safe. As you probably know, all non-essential businesses have closed temporarily in Spain, until the covid-19 situation improves. We´re still allowed to visit our office if we travel there alone (and keep the front door locked), and today I spent some time printing some posters to show our gratitude to the emergency services in our "A3" window. Despite all the inconveniences of social distancing and not being able to meet friends in bars and restaurants at the moment, our hardship is nothing in comparison to what the emergency and essential services are going through at the moment. We salute you! So, how are we keeping busy at the moment at Villas Fox? Well, that´s not hard because it´s the end of the quarter so we (or rather Sorelle) still have to present all our receipts and invoices to the accountant. We are still getting enquiries from prospective buyers (although not as many as usual for obvious reasons), and there is always plenty of work to do updating our websites. Despite the fact that it´s practically impossible to do viewings or complete sales at the notary, we´ve decided to keep nearly all our advertising going, so you can still see our properties on Rightmove, Kyero, Thinkspain etc with only a couple of exceptions. Ollie and I have also been working on a new website to showcase new-build properties (www.newbuildvillas.com) as we hope to offer our clients more options in the future, and so we are strengthening links with builders and promoters to this end.
Although we recently invested in an improved phone system in the office, we haven´t been clever enough to work out how to divert calls to our mobile phone during this period (doh!) but to make it easier for you to communicate with us, we have installed a chat/messaging system on our website, to make it easier for you to quickly message us directly from the website. (Getting it to work was not easy, so please try it out - we´d be happy to text-chat with you about anything! The button is on every page on our website (www.villasfox.com) in the top-right corner. Finally, the sun is out and thanks to our wonderful supermarket-workers in San Miguel we have a full fridge, so no complaints here! #quedateencasa #stayathome
