Making an offer

The way the property market works along the Costa del Sol is just like any other. Even if you are not a local, the process of buying and selling remains fairly standard around the world. The seller will put their property on the market, highlight its most attractive features and set an asking price.

At Sunshine Golf Properties, our extensive experience allows us to offer expert advice when it comes to submitting your offer. Not only do we look at the value of the property that you wish to buy, but we also take into account the values of the surrounding properties as well as any local attractions and amenities. These are important since they directly affect the current and future value of all the properties in the area. Properties in a thriving area understandably fetch a higher price than those in more secluded parts where goods and services are a significant distance away.

When you are ready to submit your offer, we will then take this offer to the seller. Essentially, it is up to the seller to agree to your offer. When your offer is accepted, then we can proceed with the necessary paper work. If for whatever reason, your offer is not accepted, we will discuss other options in terms of other properties while making a note of your offer should the seller reconsider.

Our goal is to ensure that both seller and buyer are satisfied with the final agreement and sale. This is why we encourage our clients to make informed decisions. We will always make buyers aware of all the best properties available based on their needs without making you feel forced or obligated in any way. If you would like to know more about the properties we currently have available or if you require any other information, feel free to contact our helpful and friendly consultants.

Setting the Budget

Properties along the Costa del Sol are being snapped up, and there is a growing demand for residential and other properties in this superbly beautiful part of Spain. This stretch of land also offers fantastic variety in terms of amenities and scenery. Stunning sunny beaches, magnificent mountains, and quaint countryside locations are just three examples of the natural diversity in these parts. Similarly, you can also expect great variety as far as properties are concerned.

Some of the most popular types of properties included homes on and near golf courses, seaside homes, and luxury apartments. Of course, choosing the ideal home also means that you need to consider your needs and budget. The latter being the most important fact of all. Setting a budget for your new home will depend on how much you have available for a down payment and how much you will qualify to lend if you are opting for a mortgage.

The larger the property, the higher the price. In addition, the location and amenities in the area will also affect property prices. As tempting as it might be, it's never a good idea to buy a home that is just within your reach (financially). You should always leave yourself some financial room for error. In other words, make sure that you are not depleting your funds and monthly income just to pay for your home. Life is unpredictable, and emergencies often require that you have some cash on hand.

For those who are planning on renting their Costa del Sol home out throughout most of the year, it's also important not to rely on this source of income too heavily. The extra income is great, but if, for whatever reason, your home remains empty for several months, you don't want this to financially cripple you. If in doubt, the best thing to do is outline your current income and savings while comparing this amount to your usual monthly and annual expenses. At Sunshine Golf Properties, our goal is to help you make a sound investment. Our team is always happy to assist with professional advice regarding any step of the home purchase process.
