Hi all, we have recently decided that we would like a second home in Spain. Obviously we want “a bargain”. We have a viewing trip organised for March and we are concentrating around Banos y Mendigo. We have two young boys who would be happy with a pool and their mountain bikes. The fact that it has been described as a ghost town doesn’t worry us, we’re not too keen on people so it could be a good fit. Has anyone purchased here? We won’t need to rent, but I would like the option of trading up to a larger place as we retire in 10 ish years. So basically any input greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading.

Congratulations, you have spotted a hidden Spanish gem!
Like most developments from the naughties Mosa has had its downs. It is has yet to climb out of the down but how smart of you to be planning ahead,. It is my belief that the development of the site (and the area) will recommence shortly, hopefully by the end of this year.
Rest assured that when it does the wonderful bargains that currently exist will abruptly come to an end.
Mosa is perfectly suited to families and retirees. The coast is nearby, Murcia city a treasure on the doorstep and finally a resort space as yet not fully built with scope to adjust and match to the needs of the modern buyer whatever their age.
I have owned a property next to Banos for 12 years and it has become an integral part of our family life and many successful holidays have been spent there with guests, family and friends. We have four sons and they have relished watersports on the Mar menor, skiing in Granada, golf and tennis locally and memorable night life in Murcia. The friendliness and sincerity of the local Spanish people of Murcia is unforgettable
It is my belief that the first developer who integrates a modern sports and leisure facility (golf, tennis & football) with a health clinic/gym to cater to all ages particularly the ‘baby boomer’ plus age group is onto a certain winner.
Keep an eye on Banos/Mosa and don’t miss out!
