How to Spot the Right Property in Costa del Sol

Aug 17, 2007
When looking for a property to buy in Costa del Sol you have to take into account that there are different kinds of properties, in different places and at a different building stage, therefore you need to have a good idea of what you really want otherwise you need to be very open minded.

In order to choose the right type of property in Costa del Sol you should, first of all, determine the purpose of your buy, this means define what is it that you want the property for. Some people might want to establish a home, some other would like to have a second residence or just to make an investment, among others. The amount of money you count with is another important variable, obviously is not the same to buy an apartment, a villa, a country house, a finca, a cortijo or a house in a golf club in terms of money.

Generally speaking, there are three different places where a potential property can be located. The first and most common option is the coast. People prefer to buy in this area due to the Mediterranean coastal climate, the quality of life and the wide variety of properties available. The second alternative is the interior, the properties situated in this zone are known as inland property. The inland area is mostly rural and people buying there should like the countryside. The main characteristic of this zone is its geographical variety where dry plains, olive groves, fertile valleys, mountain areas and limestone cliffs and formations can be found. The final option is called specialist property which includes commercial property, golf property, new developments, third age communities, development land and investment property.

In Costa del Sol the property offer is wide enough and comprises not only already built property but also off plan. Within the already built you can find properties of different states ranging from ruins, to renovated or newly built. To buy off plan or at a certain point during the construction process is not only a popular option in Costa del Sol but a very good deal due to the fact that the earlier the buy is made the less expensive the total price will be.

Finally, It is important to know that there are different buying conditions depending on what is being bought, if it is a resold property or a new development that usually has fixed prices and payment schedules with very little room for negotiation.

Finding and buying a property in Costa del Sol can be very simple or very difficult it all depends on needs, wants and priorities and also on the gathered information because certainly there is a property for everyone. Surely the right property, in the right place and at the right price can be found.
