We are proud to announce that Taylor Wimpey was present at the Fairmedia Show at Helsinki.
Partnering with Matti Lehetinen we shared a 24 square meter stand to display our current top developments and Taylor Wimpey’s Sales Manager, Marc Pritchard was present at the show in order to provide expert advice on every aspect that clients need to know when purchasing a home in Spain.
This was the eighth time this exhibition took place in Finland. The last 3 shows had been rather quiet but on this occasion and thanks to the steady reactivation of the real estate market, the show received a total of 1700 visitors in 2 days, doubling the assistance of the previous shows.
Most of the interest was focused on our properties at Costa Blanca, which is the traditional destination for Finland, but also a lot of interest was shown on our Mallorca and Costa del Sol properties.
Our special offers for the last units at Calpesol and Encinas did raise a lot of interest among our potential clients and Inspection Visits to our developments were organised on site.
Continuing with our constant presence in the Europeans Markets, we joined forces with our exclusive Dutch partner Frans Mulder, to be present at the most important exhibition in Holland; the Utrecht - October International Fair.
For this event we had an impressive 50 squares meter stand totally decorated with Frans Mulder and Taylor Wimpey brands.
We had some very special offers such as fully furnished apartments for 208.000€ at our Cala d’Or development, and also at Las Encinas in Costa del Sol with a penthouse going for the price of 215.000€.
Most of the interest remained in Costa Blanca –traditional destination for Dutch people-, though the amount of clients that enquired about our top quality apartments on the Costa del Sol was also surprising.
The total number of visitors over the 3 days was 7,500, and we have already reserved for the next show talking place from 26 to 28 March 2010, as all the best spaces were already being booked.
Taylor Wimpey de España is continuing its 50th anniversary celebrations by announcing that it will be holding a series of special Spanish property exhibitions throughout the UK during the month of September. These exhibitions will allow house hunters the chance to gain further information on the homes and locations available, whilst simultaneously being able to take advantage of some special discounts, up to 41%, on many selected properties.
From Sunday 13th September* to Sunday 4th October, Taylor Wimpey de España will be opening its doors to house hunters in search of a holiday home in the sun. Experts will be on hand throughout the day to offer advice on every aspect individuals need to know about purchasing a home abroad. From what’s the ideal location, to the most suitable type of home, the purchasing procedure involved and what homes make the best buy-to-let investment. Any individual who makes a reservation on that day, will get an extra special bonus discount. We are also offering prospective purchasers free Inspection Trips allowing them to familiarise themselves with the area in which they are looking to buy, as well as view the developments and homes on offer.
Victor Sague, Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey de España comments: "In celebration of over 50 years of building in Spain, we are delighted to be touring throughout the UK allowing house hunters to see for themselves what a Taylor Wimpey home has to offer. As the only major UK house builder in Spain, we are extremely proud of our heritage and achievements to date and this unique event will allow people to gain immediate access to our products. We have a number of homes available in seaside and golfing locations throughout Mallorca, Costa Blanca, Gibraltar and Marbella. I believe that a high number of homes will be sold throughout the couple of weeks of exhibitions as it will provide house hunters one last chance to buy a quality home at a fantastic price. It really is now or never for people to take advantage of these top quality homes as these discounts will not be around for long."

It is true that on a global level these are financially difficult times. However, although the crisis has hit the property sector, it remains an area that generates security and confidence in investors.
In 2009 prices have fallen and investors are beginning to analyse the best places to make their movements. The "Financial Times" has selected a list of 10 places , that are considered the best in terms of security and financial stability, infrastructure, accessibility, amenities and, above all, good growth projection. Mallorca features on the list and is the island where Taylor Wimpey España has its central offices and where it is currently developing various projects.
Mallorca is in fifth place on the TOP 10 of ideal places to invest in 2009.. The period of recession has not affected the island, among other reasons because of the balance that exists between supply and demand, the lack of available land, strict controls on urban development and continued purchases by overseas and domestic clients. Moreover, improvements have been made to the road network, low cost airlines have increased the frequency of flights to the island, and all this makes Mallorca an extremely attractive option, without forgetting its spectacular landscapes, climate and environment.
Taylor Wimpey España has numerous residential complexes in the best spots on the island such as:
Portals – Puerto Portals
La Colina del Golf y Los Altos del Golf – Golf Andratx – Camp de Mar.
Pollentia Mar – Puerto Pollença
El Puerto 2 – Cala D’Or
Es Port Verd – Costa de los Pinos
Edifici Alber y CanRoses III– Palma de Mallorca
Sa Torre – Portol
Taylor Wimpey, in response to the demand received, has begun the pre-sales marketing of Block 16 of the second phase of Los Altos del Golf, the luxury residential development located in the heart of Golf de Andratx. This new block will have two homes with four bedrooms and two with two bedrooms, all with an exceptional layout and aspect, which will favour appreciation of splendid views of the sea.
If you are interested in finding about the second phase of Los Altos del Golf, why not visit one of our new pilot homes?

During March the sale of the Cala Magrana II residential complex, which is located in Porto Cristo, Mallorca, was completed. The last three properties were purchased by a Dutch investor, who, encouraged by the confidence transmitted by Taylor Wimpey España and by the fabulous prices currently available, decided to make a secure investment.
This reflects the position the developer holds internationally, thanks to its experience of more than 50 years in building quality homes in Spain and to its team of professionals who are dedicated to providing excellent customer service, both prior to and following purchase of the property.
Moreover, it indicates that it is undoubtedly a unique time to buy in Spain, because at Taylor Wimpey you will find quality properties with all the legal guarantees and with excellent discounts. Don’t let this opportunity pass you by!

The organisation OPP, Overseas Property Professional, lead a panel discussion to debate the way in which greater guarantees can be provided to clients in order to restore confidence in Spain as the second homes market leader.
Our Director de Marketing y Ventas, Victor Sagué, was invited to participate. He offered the viewpoint of Taylor Wimpey de España, a company that has been selling quality properties in this country for more than 50 years. Representatives from the Safe Buying Experience, and from the banking, insurance and legal sectors also attended in order to give a multidisciplinary vision of the issue.
Spain has always been recognised as a mature market with regard to second homes, as a result of its excellent infrastructure, flexible mortgage system, the quality of its health system and the tourism that it offers, etc. However, this image has been affected in large part by media reports on negative aspects.
Some conclusions from the meeting included: the need to offer transparent services that reflect a clear exchange between buyer and seller; the importance of providing clients with as much information as possible so that they have a complete overview of the investment, not just of the complex itself, but also of the surroundings; establishing links with companies that guarantee the security of the investment, such as those that Taylor Wimpey de España maintains with Safe Buying Experience, a company that has granted an accreditation award to all our residential complexes because they comply with the highest legal standards, both as regards construction and buying processes.
On the 18 January in Phoenix (Arizona, USA) a charity marathon was held to raise money for the "Prevent Cancer Foundation". The employees of Taylor Wimpey and Taylor Wimpey de España supported the cause, led by Peter Redfern, Chief Executive de Taylor Wimpey, who decided to travel from the UK to participate and run the marathon in honour of Sue Nalón, a work colleague who died of cancer at the age of 41.
In total over 6000 dollars were raised, which were donated to the foundation so that it can continue its work in the prevention and early detection of cancer through research and educational campaigns in the community.
Taylor Wimpey, the UK developer to which our company, Taylor Wimpey de España, belongs, posted positive results in its latest sales balance despite difficult times for the property sector.
Taylor Wimpey closed the 2008 financial year with 214 houses sold, two more than in 2007, despite the fact that the property climate deteriorated significantly during this period. This indicates that our product continues to be attractive, and that it is perceived as a safe investment due to the location of our properties, in first rate areas of the Spanish coast such as Mallorca, the Costa Blanca and the Costa del Sol.
Among strategies aimed at maintaining sales levels, management decided during the second semester of the year to offer discounts of up to 25% on a selection of properties, in order to create a range of alternatives for its clients that would adapt to their needs and means. As a result, the company registered 131 sales during the second semester and more than 100 reservations for 2009.
During 2009 our clients will also be able to benefit from magnificent discounts on many of our residential properties, as well as a personalised customer service both prior to and after purchasing the property. Find out about our offers on our website: www.taylorwoodrow.es by calling 08000 121 020.
