MARCH 2015 - BRITISH BUYERS STARTING BUYING FRENZY IN SPAIN

British Buyers Starting Buying Frenzy In Spain

Welcome to this months property news and views from Chersun the informative Spanish Estate Agency.

With Easter approaching it has been a very busy first quarter of the year and the main interest in the Spanish market has been from the British market.

The previous 3 years it was the Belgium, Dutch and Scandanavian buyers who were the main nationalities who were purchasing property on the Costa Blanca and Costa Calida regions of Spain. They are still buying however most of our enquries now are from Brits looking to take advantage of the exchange rate and bargain property prices.

If you do not want to miss out before the exchange rate weakens and prices start to increase my advice is act now.

We hope that you enjoy this months newletter and do not hesitate to contact us for more information or if you have any queries about the Spanish property market.

Best regards

Record Breaking Visitors To A Place In The Sun Show In Manchester.


We attended the A Place In The Sun Live Show in Manchester this month and it was an incredible few days with 6,742 overseas property hunters visiting over 120 exhibitors in search for their place in the sun. This was a record breaking number with 3,000 people visiting on the Saturday alone. Our stand was very busy throughout the three days of the show and we were complimented by many prospective buyers on the information and tips that we provided them. We are now arranging viewing trips for many of the interested buyers.  

There was an upbeat and buzzing atmosphere throughout the show with loads of beautiful properties on sale from around the world to suit all budgets and plenty of opportunities for visitors to quiz experts on their stands and during presentations.

The Hub area was jam-packed throughout the weekend as people queued to hear from industry experts talking about anything from planning your overseas property hunt; what, where and how to buy in Spain.Amanda, Jasmine, Jonnie and Laura were available for magazine signings and also appeared on stage in The Hub to offer their top tips and advice on buying property overseas.

Our next shows are at Olympia London 8th-10th May with a third 2015 show at the NEC Birmingham 25th-27th September.

THE TOP SIX AREAS IN THE COSTA BLANCA AND COSTA CALIDA TO CONSIDER BUYING A PROPERTY IN.

 

We always ask and listen to what prospective buyers are looking for when considering buying a property in Spain and all our clients will confirm that they want a nice location.


There is no truer phrase than "location, location, location" as this is the most important aspect when buying any property whether here in Spain or in any other part of the world.

I have therefore listed below our top six areas to consider when searching for your property in the sunny region of the Costa Blanca and the Costa Calida.

Each of our top six recommendations have all year life with a host of bars, restaurants, and amenities open all year. There would be nothing worse than coming over to your spanish property with nothing open, tumble weed blowing down the street and only stray dogs for company.

So here are our areas that you should consider to purchase your place in the sun.

LA ZENIA

LOS ALCAZARES

SANTIAGO DE LA RIBERA

SAN PEDRO DEL PINATAR

QUESADA

TORRE DE LA HORADADA

WHAT ARE THE COSTS TO FURNISH A BRAND NEW PROPERTY IN SPAIN.


With many new property developments being built along the Costa Blanca and Costa Calida we are asked many times what would be the average cost of furnishing a standard 2 bed property.

There are many furniture pack options and the costs can vary depending on the quality and brand of furnishings.

I would estimate that the average cost to furnish a 2 bed property would be in the region of 6000 euros ( 4500 sterling). This would also include the white goods as most new developments do not include these in the purchase price. The cost of air conditioning units which would provide hot and cold air would be an additional 2000 euros ( 1400 sterling ) .

When buying beds it is a good idea to buy a couple of beds that have the under storage as this is an ideal place to keep the extra bed linen and towels etc. It is also worth considering that the other beds have enough room underneath to store suitcases.

A sofa bed is also a consideration in case you have some extra visitors and it might be better to get a leather suite as these are easier to clean off sun tan lotion or spilt drinks.

It is also important not to buy furniture before measuring up the rooms, we have seen some very bad planning with extra large furniture taking up every inch of some small apartments.

As always we can recommend reputable furniture suppliers such as DFSSPAIN who will ensure that you buy the correct furnishings for your property in the sun.

Our Clients Feedback This Month.

Robin & Colleen Chater UK

We recently purchased a villa through Chersun Properties.  As we were not familiar with buying in Spain it was very important to find estate agents who were reliable and trustworthy and therefore we were extremely lucky to find and use Chersun.  They worked closely with us through all the stages of the process from the viewing, the solicitors and completion.  The staff have been very proactive and extremely willing to "go the extra mile" and are continuing to do so. We have no hesitation in strongly recommending them.

Lorraine Kitchen UK

Paul greeted us at the airport,he knew exactly what property we were interested in and didn't try to persuade or pressure us to looking at any other properties ie Spanish town house etc. The accommodation we were put in was 1st class (excellent)

My husband and I were on a one to one with Paul which was very relaxing, there was no rushing around or getting stressed out, we would view a property then go for a coffee or a spot of lunch then back to viewing.

Once we had chosen our villa the after sales was marvellous (spot on)
Paul took us to look at furniture shops garden centre and to look at light fittings.

He took us to different beaches to shopping centres different parts in Alicante to let us get a good feel about the place. We even got things set up with a Spanish speaking solicitor, nothing was too much for Paul.

Paul was a real gentleman and we highly recommend that you use him as you will be in good hands. Paul's e-mail is  paul@chersun.com
