Kavana it's all down to personal choice..the op said you can rent for €500 per month..in Spain this is possible to do for a long term rental in a none holiday type location  .but for short term holiday rentals you are looking at around €500 per week.for a 2 bed apartment in a holiday location.....even in Wale's you will pay £1,000 per week for a mobile home in Treco Bay  Porthcawl ..so long term holiday home ownership in Spain has worked out great for me and my family for the last 17 years..and as I said in a previous post my son has now bought a 2 Bed Villa on a gated community for himself and his  family to enjoy as it definitely works out cheaper in the long run owning a property in Spain as apposed to renting..

Or dare I say it without having my nose bit off buying a mobile home in any part of the UK..and while we are on the subject of mobile homes..have you bothered to look at what the purchase price and yearly ground rent is in Spain.. it's really not that much different to Wale's that pisses down with rain most of the time as you said..but I live in Wale's and know it really doesn't...as for clocked  cut and shut cars on the second hand market in Spain I wouldn't know as I always buy brand new cars that I changed every 3 years regardless.. have a nice day.

Kavana  I was giving ..ob123 a comparison between my home town in Wale's ..I didn't mention Grimsby... surly you understood that. But incase you didn't it's cheaper to have a holiday home on the Costa's ...than Wales ...my Brother-in-law has just paid £125,000 for a so called mobile home in Porthcawl sth Wales with a life expectancy of 25 years on the site...his site fee's for 10 months use per year are £6,000 per year...but you might be able to get a better deal in Grimsby...LOL.

As for your yearly Spanish running cost of €2,400 ..if you take into consideration how much it costs in site fee's for a caravan/ mobile home in the UK.. where I come from we have two mobile holiday site's and they are both around £6,000  for 10 months ... with gas electric and water on top..so your Spanish apartment is cheap in comparison.

Hi ob123 my Villa is in Los Balcones a suburb of Torrevieja my community fee's are €16 per month..my son has a Villa on another gated community also in Los Balcones and pay's €21 per month community fee's he pays more as his community has two pools and bigger community gardens...all the other upkeep charges like yearly water meter/ electric meter rental rubbish Tax/ none Residents Tax and so forth will be the same..so basically the only difference should be the community fee's you are paying ... your internet of €400 per year is also expensive I pay €110 per year with Teletec broadband  you pay €90 for the small dish to be installed and then you have a choice of taking out one of the two contracts on offer the contract I have is for the yearly connection that comes to €110 per year ..my son has the same system but has opted for the pay as you use opinion..this comes to €10 per week he just sends Teletec a email prior to arrival and they turn the Net on for him...I think in your original post you factored in the amount of water and electric you use when you should have only taken into account the yearly meter rental.

I am not to sure what part of Spain ob123 has his apartment in...but some of the figures on the upkeep sound very expensive..Both myself and my son have 2 bedroom Villas on gated communities with swimming pools and community grounds my yearly outlay comes to under €1,000 per year .my sons 2 bedroom Villa on another gated community pays under €1,000 per year for the upkeep we are both none residents ... buying a property in Spain should not be looked at as a investment as it would probably take you at least ten years to get your original outlay back... especially when you take the buying and selling fee's of approximately 20% in to  consideration ..in layman's terms if you bought a property for €100,000 and decided to sell it you are looking at clearing €120,000 just to get your original outlay back.

British epats leaving Spain why.
"Hi I have just got back from Spain after spending a week at my holiday home I have not been over to my villa for 9 months due to business commitments hear in the U.K ,I was shocked to find that only 2 villas out of 120 had full time occupants and all the rest where locked up it reminded me of a ghost town why are so many expats leaving Spain."
