In September 2002, house hunters Anthony and Linda O'Malley from North Wales arrived in Benidorm of Spain's Costa Blanca to bid for a house at auction that they had earmarked for their retirement. Within a week of their arrival, the couple vanished. Alerted by the withdrawal of large sums of cash from the couple's UK bank accounts the Welsh police launched their own missing persons inquiry. Daughter Nicola Welch, frantic with worry but with no idea of what really happened, made an appeal on Crimewatch for her parents to get in touch.Six months after the couple's disappearance, following emailed ransom demands from a mysterious figure codenamed Phoenix, Spanish police recovered their bodies from the cellar floor in a villa in Alcoy. The full horrifying story was pieced together in a painstaking investigation. The O'Malleys had been tricked into viewing the property, held captive for five days and forced to hand over the money they'd saved for their deposit. When they were no longer of use, they were disposed of in the cellar of the very house they'd hoped would be their dream home.Investigative journalist Danny Collins helped North Wales officers track down the killers in a tense and dangerous search - this is what he uncovered.

Real estate is one of the driving factors of destination development. In some destinations value added from the construction and sales of second homes even surpasses value added created in the traditional tourism sector. This book, edited by Peter Keller and Thomas Bieger, contributes to the deeper understanding of the dynamics of real estate development in destinations: the role, structure and development of destination real estate markets; evolving real estate business models in destinations; the socio-economic impacts of real estate on destinations; optimizing destination capacity through real estate management strategies, and public-private governance approaches for managing holiday property market development. The book provides a unique database for the important topic of real estate and destination development in tourism with contributions from 43 researchers and 18 case studies.

Affluence Mobility And Second Home Ownership

Despite the current recession, the frequency of second home ownership is still surprisingly high throughout the western world. While the UK and Ireland previously had lower occurrences of multiple dwellings compared to the rest of Europe, they are quickly catching up with a current surge in the ownership of second homes. The recent MP expenses scandal in the UK has also drawn attention to the prevalence of second homes (or more) within the middle classes, and the fact that the concept is becoming increasingly popular. Chris Paris uses this text to address the reasons behind why second homes are becoming more popular, both within the usual domicile of the individuals, and in international locations. The socioeconomic factors and historical contexts of homes in cultures across the world are fundamental to explaining the choices in transnational home ownership, and Paris’ case studies and comparisons between additional homes in Europe, Australia, America and Asia expand upon the motivation for people to own a second home. Affluence, Mobility and Second Home Ownership draws together debates on gentrification, globalisation, consumerism, environmental factors and investment to provide a balanced look at the pros, and cons, of second home ownership, and what implications it has for the future. An ideal text for students studying geography, urbanism and planning, this book is also of interest to individuals interested in the changing ways in which we make choices on our places of residence.

Urban Challenges In Spain And Portugal

Contemporary cities in the Iberian Peninsula have gone through a period of dramatic changes during the last decade. A period of upward economic indicators and massive urbanization was followed by a tremendous financial crash in 2007 that sank Spanish and Portuguese societies into a profound crisis. That period of massive urbanization has been explained by several factors: the availability of financial capital that was speculatively invested in real-estate, a rather sympathetic land use regulation, and the real or perceived social mobility by most social groups which included housing acquisition enabled by unusual credit facilities. In this book we aim to show several different aspects of this process both in Portugal and Spanish cities, problematizing the economic and social consequences of such a model of urban and economic growth and also presenting some policy and governance outcomes that took place along the last decade. This book was published as a special issue of Urban Research and Practice.

In the context of contemporary economic, political, social and cultural transformations, this book brings together contributions from developed and emerging societies in Europe, the USA and East Asia in order to highlight the nature, extent and impact of these changes on the housing opportunities of women. The collection seeks to contribute to comparative housing debates by highlighting the gendered nature of housing processes, locating these processes within wider structured and institutionalized relations of power, and to show how these socially constructed relationships are culturally contingent, and manifest and transform over time and space. The international contributors draw on a wide range of empirical evidence relating to labour market participation, wealth distribution, family formation and education to demonstrate the complexity and gendered nature of the interlocking arenas of production, reproduction and consumption and the implications for the housing opportunities of women in different social contexts. Worldwide examples are drawn from Australia, China, Great Britain, Hong Kong, Japan, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan and the USA.

This publication, the 17th in a series of UNCTAD annual reports, analyses the latest trends in foreign direct investment (FDI) flows worldwide at the regional and country levels and examines emerging measures to improve its contribution to development. The 2007 report focuses on the role of transnational corporations (TNCs) in the extraction of oil, gas, and metal minerals, looking at key countries and companies involved and how the forces driving investment change as raw materials progress up the value chain to become finished products, and as different types of companies participate. Findings include that global FDI inflows rose in 2006 for the third consecutive year, with growth shared by all major country groups (developed countries, developing countries and the transition-economies of South-East Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States). Rising demand for commodities was reflected in a steep increase in natural resource-related FDI, although the services sector continued to be the dominant recipient of FDI. Among the developing regions, FDI inflows to subregions such as North Africa, sub-Saharan Africa, West Asia, South Asia, East Asia, and South-East Asia were at record levels, as were foreign investment flows to transition economies.

My husband and I dreamed of an early retirement in Spain. When we both suddenly lost our jobs, we decided to turn the dream into reality. Thousands of foreigners move to Spain every year. What is the feel and texture of day in, day out living for these people? We searched for books on what it was like for ordinary, middleclass foreigners to live in Spain. We found books for tourists, books on how to buy a property, how to restore an old farmhouse and finding a holiday home, We found nothing about making a permanent move. Our search for information was in vain but we blindly made the move anyway. This book is a diary of our first two years in Spain. The people are real and the events are true. The first years in a new country are always transitional years. Ours were fraught with excitement, frustration, delight, culture shock and exasperation! If you are planning a new life in Spain, I hope this book is helpful. I wish you luck and happiness on your adventure.
