    Hello, Im new to the forum and I’m looking for some advice when it comes to buying a property off plan.

    The situation is this, in the begining of the summer I got an advice of buying an apartment in a new Project that the Company Gama Groupo is building, close to the golf courses in Villamartin in Orihuela Costa.

    When I went to look at the building site in the beginning of the summer only some of the apartments were reserved. As nothing was built yet and this was going to be the first block/house out of the six planed I backed out.

    Now the other day I did visit this site again. Apperantly all, except two, of the apartments are already booked/sold in the first block and they have started the building of block two (were there still are some apartments to choose from). But the prices are higher then it was in the first block. I’m now, once again, considering of buying/reserving an apartment but I have some questions;

    Is anyone familiar with this Company Gama Group? Are they trustworthy? Do they build good properties?

    Is it generally a favourable deal to buy apartments off-plan in the beginning of a new building Project?
    I have read that some people advice you not to buy off-plan but on the other hand it seems like you get a better price when buying it early

    Do you think it is a good time to buy something in Spain now when it comes to property prices?

    I would advise against buying off plan if I were you. There are actually lots of already built properties available, where you have some idea what it will actually look like and that it will actually be built.

    Prices in Spain have been rising slowly for a while but if you are a Brit then the Euro is far more expensive now unless you transferred money to Euros before Brexit.
