Will we live the dream?

My dream of owning a place in Spain is coming true after ten years in the planning.......This is what's happening!

Spain, The Weather and no rose tinted spectacles (Or Sunglasses)!

So I took my Mam and Dad with me to keep me grounded and just bounce things off them.  I also thought that they would enjoy a couple of days in Sunny Spain!

When we landed it was chucking it down, but I still had a smile on my face and was very thankful that at the last minute I had packed my raincoat  (I also packed my flip flops haha.

I immediately felt at home the moment we got on the motorway and was so excited to be looking at this property I had found. It was the only one I had arranged to see.  We were staying only two streets away on the same urbanisation so it was great because we could have a little peek on the day we arrived rather than seeing it with the agent first.

I was in .

It was in a great place, not the street I had thought, but in fact IMO a better place.  It looked clean from the outside, so no painting needed there!

Off we trotted to dump our cases and rush back again to meet the agent.  It was hammering it down - we were totally drenched and the agent was 15 minutes late.  I said to Mam & Dad that at least I wouldn't just buy it because it was hot and sunny and not really think about the decision

We had a look around once the agent arrived and it was really great with excellent far reaching views and the place just had a great feeling to it, and even Mam & Dad were impressed!

Once we left, we wandered down to the bar to have something to eat and a drink before I met the solicitor.  ( I had arranged this before we went out, just in case I did buy, as I had only four days in Spain). As we wandered to the bar I was just thinking about what I had seen and how I felt and Dad asked me if I thought I would buy it......

Who was I kidding, I already knew that I was before I flew to Spain   I just wanted to check out the location and see what the condition was before I went ahead.

So that was it, I met the solicitor and he put in my offer and it was accepted. I spent the next two days going back to the apartment and checking it out again!  and filling in paperwork, meeting notary's and all sorts of other bits.

We did manage half a day in Torrevieja wandering round and the sun actually came out! And we did manage to eat in a few lovely places whilst we were out..........

The sun was shining brightly......and we were getting on our flight home

Fantastic news! Where abouts is it? You have probably already said in your previous post but I can't remember! Hope it all goes smoothly for you and looking forward to hearing more! :)

Hi Louise

It's on an urbanisation called Entre Naranjos, Nr Los Montesinos.

We had been many times before and loved the layout of the apartments and of course the area. We have stayed in many places but we said when we finally bought it would be in that style because we used every bit of the apartment to the max, whereas in some places we did like using the roof terrace as the stairs to it were external and you had to keep locking and unlocking doors each time you went anywhere.

We love having internal stairs and it just feels more secure. I am looking forward to venturing there in February!
