My partner and I had decided to purchase a villa in Spain. Talking with some friends who were also talking about buying a villa it was suggested we join them at a apartment exhibition in Birmingham.
To cover more ground, we split from them agreeing to meet at lunchtime and recommend suitable stands to visit. They were late back however and a phone call revealed that they had brought an off-plan apartment on the Costa Del Sol, west of Malaga, and were just finishing the required paperwork.
Frankly we thought them to be mad to make such a spot decision. However, they knew that area of Spain well. We were more cautious. However upon their recommendation we visited the same stall and hey presto we had agreed a viewing flight to Spain before you could say tapas!. I must say though that the thought of a cheap short break in Spain was quite appealing though. A weekend trip cost £95 per person.
Not long afterwards we landed at Malaga airport and were very impressed with a warm greeting from the sales person, Virgina. We were even more impressed that she knew our names. Our personal escort was very friendly and we were whisked away from the airport in a nice BMW company car.
After visiting lots of villas and developments at both ends of our budget, we visited a development we liked at Casares Del Sol about half an hour from Gibraltar. It seemed to have everything we were looking for. It promised luxury apartments with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a high tech kitchen, set amidst tropical gardens with 7 swimming pools. Being British we had the stiff upper lip choosing to mull over the prospect during the course of the evening.
We did however view some other developments with Virginia so as to be 100% sure. There was no pressure placed upon us, the developments almost selling themselves. Virgina gave us sufficient help in seeing the various benefits of exactly where to buy on a development. Consider for example things as views, noise levels, access as we get older (lift, stairs etc), proximity to pool, rental opportunity
We signed the purchase documents for Caseras and parted with 4,000 Euros. The lovely Virginia treated us to a slap up meal at Casares. Casares is a pretty traditional white washed mountain village from which our development gets its name. By now she felt more like a new friend than a sales representative. As you can imagine we had many queries about[/apin]] what was to happen next and she was very patient [spin]answering them all.
We came back to the UK excited with dreamy thoughts of spending many holidays in our home in the sun. Virgina kept in touch sometimes informing us to progress on the development and even sent a few photographs of our plot.
My advice is to carefully choose which company you arrange your viewing trip with. Ask where you will stay for the visit and, of course, what is the cost. Finally ask loads of questions, compile a list before you leave home and get each question answered. And once you have chosen your villa, sign up with a company that specialises in villa furnishing and ask them to show you suitable villa furnishing packs that are within your budget.
