I found your article interesting but a little scathing at the end. I am one of those ‘dopey’ people who bought off-plan, not, I might add, to make a lot of money, but to help create an investment for my old-age instead of the pension route which also has left many with nothing. I think the estate agents played on this and also on our lack of knowledge of the type of rogue estate agents operating in Spain. Yes, I have been left with a property I can’t sell, but I know this has come about because I was stupid enough to believe the hype I was told, not because I had visions of getting rich quick. So spare a thought sometimes for the off-planner who is just plain stupid in this case and do not think we are all the same!!
