Re: Buying in Spain

Thanks for all the reminders and especially for the heads-up for reminding me of the damaged on return scam.

The property (2nd floor Apartment) I'm interested in is in the centre of Town and not on the outskirts so no problem with it being a illegal build etc. But basically it will be more of a base and investment just to get my feet on the ground in Spain until I find anything better. (If needs be)

Yes your route information could be useful and helpful because if it comes to it I might just decide to drive over.

This particular property is a 3 bed apartment listed as furnished but will still need being given a more homely lived in feel and is on the market for just over 29,000+
The seller (British) owns several properties but is selling up to retire and enjoy life without the worry of having tenants and the problems they can sometimes cause.

But budget wise it's whatever it takes to get what I eventually want, but noo more than 500,000 (for the right Hacienda.

Re: Buying in Spain

There's absolutely no need whatsoever to go anywhere near 500k to get a cracker out here

Obviously entirely your business-BUT as just a tip like in all property purchases location is almost EVERYTHING

There are certain towns villages here in which I could get a 4 bed 2 bath house for under 40k but I wouldn't take them at zero K

There's another village I know which consists of maybe 500 houses with over 100 of them up for sale

For us it was thoroughly check all aspects of location totally prior to property with our overall research being prob a 70/30 split- area over property

You REALLY have to get the area right as when it comes to resale Turkey is easy compared to many areas here

Yes but why not have your " base" in a desirable area

Smile Re: Buying in Spain

Hi - we are going non toll route - to make it more interesting as well as cheaper !

We go Dover - Calais - then stop over at Chartres ( possibly a quick visit to Versailles!) - then a full day driving to Pau - near the Pyrenees - (very close to Lourdes) - then the following day a straight run of 8 hrs to Rojales.

We are staying at Hotel Premiere Classe at both locations - a friend recommended as a little better than F1 - but still only €39 at Chartres and €29 at Pau.

Fingers crossed ��

Re: Buying in Spain

Well remember we had to add on drive Belfast Dublin and then Holyhead- Portsmouth!!!

To be honest the worst part was driving near the length of England at night ( arrived Holyhead midnight drove through night non stop arriving 7am Pompey) but thankfully on way home all driving is daytime
