Probably around two-thirds of our clients relocate to Spain when they retire or buy a property to use as a holiday home to use as a permanent home when the time comes to retire. However, the remaining third is of working age and relocate to Spain with the idea of earning a living in their adopted country.
If you are, for example, a foreign plumber or gardener, this can put you at a distinct disadvantage if you move to a location in Spain where few foreigners reside and want to start your own business. This is because most people prefer to deal with a contractor or tradesperson who speaks their language, and moreover, their fellow countrymen.
Because Javea is a town with a large percentage of expat residents, foreigners looking to start a local Javea business do not have to overcome this hurdle, as there are plenty of potential customers already here from your own country. Also, the Spanish residents of Javea are very accustomed to doing business with and living among foreigners.
Whether you are looking for a bar, restaurant, shop, or empty premises, get in touch with us.
Often, when selling a business, the owners prefer to keep the mater as private as possible, and not all available commercial premises in Javea are published on our site, so give us a call if you are looking for a running business or an empty local.
