Festive greetings from all of us at
So here we are, December and we would like to welcome you to the last edition of the Tenerife Property Shop newsletter in 2020.
The season of goodwill is upon us and this signals that we are almost at the end of the most turbulent, challenging, indifferent, emotionally draining year in modern history.
It is safe to say that 2020 is a year none of us will ever forget…. we have stayed at home, exercised in our lounge, home schooled, relentlessly sanitised our hands, video called our loved ones near and far, donned face masks, made plans and then cancelled them again, we have laughed, we have cried and some of us have even stock piled toilet paper for reasons still unknown to this day, but the one thing we can all agree upon, is that we live in hope that 2021 will be a better year, with some normality thrown in for good measure.
Despite all the uncertainty, we are still receiving a high level of enquiries and the appointment diary is busy. The different nationalities that we are currently encountering on our viewings, are as wide and varied as we have seen for some time. It is refreshing and encouraging for us to hear, when speaking with our clients from all over Europe, that Tenerife is still very much on the agenda for them, and the recent events have not dampened their thirst to purchase a property here, and in some cases it has prompted people to make the dream a reality sooner, rather than later.
We also added some great properties to our portfolio this month, look at a few of the new entries below.
We have some big plans for next year and the quieter Summer months, gave us some time as a team to brainstorm and think out of the box and we have floated and toyed with lots of ideas and we will look to implement some of these ideas in the not-too-distant future.
When times are as challenging as they are right now, it is always nice to receive a little lift and we were lucky enough to receive some fantastic news last month, that we would love to share with you.
Tenerife Property Shop S.L. has been honoured with two more International Property Awards in the categories of ‘Best Canary Islands Estate Agent’ and ‘Best Estate Agency Website Spain’ – 2020.
We are once again very pleased to be recognised for the standard of service that we give to our clients and for the exceptional quality of our website, which gives an extraordinary amount of information for visitors to the site and the best portfolio of properties for sale in the south of Tenerife.
The European Property Awards are the largest, most prestigious, and widely recognised awards, which are judged by an independent panel of over 80 industry experts, chaired by Lord Caithness, Lord Best and Lord Waverley, members of the House of Lords in the UK Parliament. The importance of these awards cannot be underestimated, as they are a testament to how everybody working in the company have strived to be the best they can, to put our company at the forefront of all that is good within our industry.
As in most parts of the world, the Christmas and New Year celebrations will be far tamer in Tenerife this year, with various restrictions in place and limitations on capacity for the normally busy bars and restaurants. The parades and outdoor gatherings have either been cancelled, or will be beamed virtually into our homes, which is a real shame for some of the parents among our team, as we know how much they were looking forward to standing on the side of the street for 5 hours, whilst being peppered with hard boiled sweets, courtesy of The Fire Brigade, various Disney characters, and the Three Kings: Melchor, Gaspar and Baltasar.
Witnessing Tenerife virtually empty at times has been truly heart-breaking. The mental and financial impact have hit hard, and the local economy has naturally suffered as a direct result. We long for the days when sunburnt Brits in sandals and white socks once again stroll the promenades, the Germans make an early morning dash for the sunbeds, the Irish fly 4,400km to sit in an Irish bar and drink Guinness, the Italians look to seek out the best coffee (but it is never going to be as good as Mama’s), and the French complain about the poor-quality baguettes on offer here in the Canary Islands ….
We would, and we will, welcome all our visitors back in an instant, and truly cannot wait to see you all again!
