Re: Stories about buying in Marbella/CDS


Hi Gurbs

Why don’t you come and interview my parents?

Came down last October and rented in Elviria for 6 months whilst looking to buy.

Ended up having looked at over 20 properties (privately and through agents).

Finally purchased (using a small local agent) a 3 bedroom, 180m2, front-line golf penthouse in Calahonda for under 300,000euros within walking distance of all amenities and with a stunning sea view (and a golf share!).

The whole process has taken 10 years off them; they’re having a fantastic time, made great friends and are chuffed to bits with their apartment. 8)

No scandal, no sensationalism…and probably over 99.9% of purchasers on the Costa del Sol fall into this bracket.

…but it doesn’t really make for good telly now, does it? 🙁

You still want to interview them?

Send me a PM if you actually want any happy stories and I’ll forward you tel nos of a bunch of them.
