Look at Property Before your Spanish Visit

You may be thinking of a second home or retirement home in Spain but want to know more about offers, regions and prices. Inspection trips are one answer but these will often restrict your property search to a restricted list of higher priced projects. A better option is to see more, by taking a holiday, and visiting a region that interests you in your own time.

Here on the Costa Blanca, most visitors book flights to Alicante airport outside the busy June-August months and collect a hire car at the airport. The A7 motorway runs the length of the Costa Blanca giving easy access to all the coastal towns and villages, so if you use a central town like Calpe it is not more then half an hours drive to Javea, Denia, Altea, Moraira, Jalon or Benissa. If you do make Calpe the base for your property search, there is a list of Calpe hotels here.

It is a good idea to look at Costa Blanca properties on internet prior to leaving. This allows you to make the most of your search time in Spain. You can compare prices and offers and get a feel for what Costa Blanca homes are like. If you have questions these can be answered by e mail, and you may want to make a preliminary interest list so that you can start viewing as soon as you arrive.

Every property is different but construction methods on the Costa Blanca have a lot in common to suit the Mediterranean climate of hot summers and mild winters. Typical villas will have red tile roofs and covered terraces to take advantage of the evening air for family and guests, and often a swimming pool to freshen off in the summer months. Palm trees and purple climbing bougainvillea are a feature in gardens and most properties will have tilled floors with a wood burning chimney in the living-room. Apartments are located in the town centres and beachfont, and villas on the hillsides surrounding the towns.

When you are eventually successful in your Costa Blanca property search, you may want to buy with a Spanish mortgage. These are easy to arrange, and as a foreign buyer you can borrow around 70% of the purchase price with a monthly repayment that is fixed year by year. As an owner, you will receive a title deed (escritura) and have your name and title inscribed in the town's Property Register, and the legal matters will be taken care of by an A.P.I. property agent or lawyer who will translate and provide all the documentation.

We look forward to meeting you!
