Moving to the Canary Islands: the complete and, above all, winning mini guide!

Who has never wanted to live 365 days a year in a paradise? Without the horn, in traffic on Monday mornings, the frenetic pace and the days when time flies without even realizing it. It would be wonderful to find a welcoming, sunny place, away from all forms of stress and suitable for all our needs.

What if I told you that it was possible? We at Realigro have created a brand new simple mini guide, focused on the most essential things, but that will allow you to move to the place you have always wanted. Because you know, often certain steps are not taken for fear of having big losses and regret it. But this time it will not be so. We have chosen a true paradise within everyone's reach! We are talking about the Canary Islands! So, if you too can't wait to go to a wonderful land and buy a property in the Canaries, the solution is right in front of your eyes. So, all we have to do is start!


Let's start by saying that the Canaries are a large archipelago, located in the Atlantic Ocean, the location is strategic, as they are the southernmost and westernmost region of the Spanish nation. Analysing the strengths of these islands, it is impossible not to mention the climate. Mitigated throughout the year, however, is affected by the influence of the trade winds, but in some periods, can alternate phases of extreme humidity to dry phases. 

Remember that these are still islands, so all temperatures are always mitigated by the sea. In fact, in the months from July to September temperatures reach 28 degrees Celsius but are never too hot. As for the flora and fauna of this magnificent paradise, should you decide to move to this country, know that there are different varieties of animals and plants, rare and unobtainable in other parts of the world. The tropical marine fauna is also rich in exotic fish, with bright colors that attract every year all lovers of snorkeling. Historically, this land has always aroused great interest for many people. The term itself Canary Islands has no clear origin, there are several populations that could have given this name to one of the most beautiful archipelagos in the world.

Let us now try to find out what documents are needed to gain access to the Canary Islands. Being a Spanish archipelago, and therefore an integral part of the European Union, it is possible to access the Canary Islands simply by means of an identification document. If you are not a member of the European Union, it is advisable to take your passport with you. Once you arrive, you should know how many islands this archipelago is divided into and especially which to choose to buy a property and move to this place permanently. The islands, in order of extension, are

Gran Canaria
La Palma
La Gomera
El Hierro
The main types of housing that can be found in the Canary Islands are :

estudio, a sort of studio apartment
piso, a fairly large two-room apartment
But where to buy a property?If we want to stay on the quality - price return, we recommend both Gran Canaria and Tenerife, because in both islands there is a wide range of choice from the residential point of view and you can make an investment that can prove highly profitable. if you buy a property you pay a tax of 6% and the costs resulting from registration in the Property Register.

We hope we have made it clear and given you all the security you need to be able to move to this corner of paradise without any problems!
