A Place In The Sun Filming Was Fun

I had an embarrassing moment when asked to appear on A Place In The Sun latest filming which took part in the lovely port of Mazarron on the Costa Calida. I was asked to appear to give my professional opinion on the current property market and also tips for the would be buyers. I met up with Jonnie Irwin the popular presenter and I was informed by the camera man that I could not wear my checked shirt as it would cause problems with filming. With no other change of clothing I was given a shirt from Jonnies wardrobe and filming went ahead as planned.We had a laugh about it later as I handed back to Jonnie a sweaty shirt that I even offered to autograph for him. It was a great day and the episode will be shown in a few months time.


TOP FIVE TIPS WHEN PICKING LOCATIONS TO BUY

The location of a property is the most important decision that you can make and that is why a good Estate Agency like Chersun will listen to you and only recommend areas that meet your criteria.


Here are the top 5 tips when it comes to location.


If you are looking to rent out the property we would recommend properties within walking distance to the beach and amenities.


Looking for a secure complex then golf resort properties will provide you with this with 24 hour security, surprisingly only 30% of buyers on a golf resort play golf as most are buying for the security and nice views.


Looking to buy a villa on a tight budget then there is only one answer and that it is to go inland, you get more for your money with inland properties but unfortunately you may not have as many amenities to choose from.


If you want to live a spanish life then buy either in a Spanish town or buy a property on the outskirts, great way to experience the easy spanish way of living with cheap bars and restaurants.

 

Finally the most important tip is to be realisitic, do not expect to get a beachfront villa with large infinity pool for 100,000 euros . You only get what you pay for and like all countries this is reflected in the location. 


THIS MONTHS TESTIMONIALS FROM THE CHERSUN CUSTOMERS


Scott Booth, Ex Scotland International Footballer Aberdeen, Scotland

It feels like we've been planning to buy a holiday home in Spain for years without making any real progress....till now. Chersun really did make the difference. They organised a viewing trip for us with our specific requirements in mind. We were given great property viewing options, sound advice and no hard sell! The whole process with Chersun is finding your holiday home in the sun made easy! In fact, it didn't stop there because they also arranged a fantastic English speaking lawyer who oversees the entire purchase process. Nothing has been too much trouble.

I would highly recommend Chersun to any of my friends or family.

Thanks Again

Scott Booth

This Months Tips When Selling Your Property In Spain.


Less is best , give your property a declutter. To make your property more appealling to potential buyers get rid of all extra furniture and ornaments that you have collected over the years.


Fresh lick of white paint not only makes the property brighter but one less thing for the prospective buyers to do when moving in.


If you have a garden cut back all the over grown plants and trees, a jungle of a garden will put off buyers unless it is Tarzan that is viewing.


Finally look at your property through the eyes of a potential buyer, you only have 10 seconds to impress a buyer. Therefore it is very important to give a positive and lasting impression the first time someone walks through the front door.
