    I have finally taken the plunge and bought a house in Spain!!

    I would like to say its a huge mansion overlooking Marbella but its not, its an hour and forty mins inland from Malaga airport in a town of 3-4000 people and i love it.

    Yep, well done. I hope you’ll be very happy.

    We are off looking (AGAIN!!) this afternoon. It seems like the market has finally fallen in Alicante in the last month or so. I think that it still has a way to go, but it is getting there, so I guess we will buy soon too. πŸ™‚

    Good to hear that you found something acceptable.

    Is the mortgage cheaper than renting a huge mansion overlooking Marbella?

    Ah Pruna, I wondered where you had bought.
    Pruna was all the rage with the Brits about 3 years ago because houses were so cheap. All the Spanish were selling their old houses to expat buyers and moving out to nice new houses on the edge of town on the proceeds! Lost count of the number of building surveys I did there.
    There is one street (in a not particularly nice part of town IMHO) where nearly every other house is Brit-owned. Now many of the Brits in Pruna are trying to sell up, the Brit-run B&B’s failed and the asking prices there are now on a par with Olvera (which, again IMHO, is a much nicer place) so people are having trouble selling. Apart from to you!
    p.s. Hope you had your house surveyed πŸ˜‰

    Hilly, we looked at Olvera (even made an offer on a house there) but i’m glad we did nt buy there because the hills would have killed me.

    we have bought in a very quiet part of town, even for Pruna. i understand there are about 40 Brits living there (owners, maybe not living there) out of 3-4000 inhabitants, thats probably a better ratio than some parts of the CDS.
    anyway we like it, a lot

    Next off its Majorca, seriously I going to set up camp there in about 15 years permently, so if anyone knows any good deals on a small property with lots of land, i’d be very interested.
