let me share my experience.
I purchased 4 apartments in Costa Del Sol, in the past year or so. I always offered 40% less, and settled for about 35% of asking price.
Thus far everything worked out for me, however I have to stop for a while as the $ Dollar has taken a dive. it may be work about 60 cents. Not good for business.
Is there a way one can find out what individual properties in a particular area sold for in recent months, or at least the price they were advertised for before they were sold?
I seem to remember having come across a website which identified the properties which had been on sale in a particular street and their price – I assume it was the price they were advertised at. This would be good enough, but I don’t remember which website that was anymore!
