I have purchased a 2 bed apartment in Orihuela costa about 5kms outside Torrvieja. I paid E214,000 fully furnished. Excellent service from start to finish, very professional company. It is in an urbanisation, the company I dealt with organise everything from water to electricity, give you a list of solicitors from which you make your own choice. I went to have a look in June, the property was half built at that stage. It was handed over to me in October. They ask what do you want snagged, they sort it. They have customer service on site for a year after you purchase. So far I can’t fault anything but then I bought for a lifestyle investment to use for our family and please God hold on to the property for at least 5 to 10 years. I don’t think any of us even the best economist can predict prices in the future, hopefully they will go up somewhat. You have to think what benefits you are going to get from the property and what suits you personally, budget, location to airport, approximity to shops/restaurants.
