How to choose professional help for purchasing international property.

1st on your checklist

Use professionally accredited company’s who are members of trade organisations such as AIPP (Association of International Property Professionals). With members here in the UK and internationally, this gives the client confidence in their professionlism. In particular if both the UK based company,  partners with  international members in the country they specialize in.

Look out for the logo on their literature and advertisements confirming tbeir membership to these trade organisations.

If you were purchasing property here in the UK you probably may use NAEA members – National Association of Estate Agents who you are familiar with. AIPP is a similar trade organisation for international property. Setting standards and code of practice for their members to adhere to.

A resale can be in a established area and you have a defined picture of what the immediate environment and location is. Whereas a new build sometimes requires your imagination and artists impressions.

Annual running costs generally speaking a complex with more or newer facilities may incur a high community fees than some older properties. It is a matter of budget and personal choice what suits you most and drives your decision making.

The house benefits from ducted A/C, solar water heating, satellite TV, and it is being sold fully furnished. It is in excellent order and viewing is highly recommended for those looking for a beautiful villa in the sunshine just a short car ride or take the local bus, to the beautiful unspoilt beaches at La Marina and Guardamar and within walking distance to bars, restaurants and an international supermarket. Alicante airport is a 30 minute drive, the “Palm City “ of Elche is only 15 minutes away and access to national rail and motorway links are easily reachable making this a fantastic location!
