MOBILE HOME IN SPAIN NEWSLETTER ARCHIVE MAY 2008
May2008 ** Some of the content might not be relevant on the date of reading this**
Welcome to our first combined Resale and New Mobile Home newsletter. Reason why we are now combining the two is that there are exciting developments where both are concerned. The difference between resale and new is that those who are looking to retire to Spain soon can snap up a fantastic resale mobile home with everything done and lots of extras included. For those who are thinking of retiring later in the year they can snap up a prime plot for just a small deposit and then plan for the future at leisure. This option is available on Park La Posada and the new site near Cordoba that will only have 5 new Ibiza Mobile Homes sited around the swimming pool. All future Inspection Trips can include the exclusive new park if requested. If you would like to see them all it will be best to stay an extra night costing 18.00 per person. Derick on 0117 318 2188 will be able to assist.
Back to the newsletter,
We are now well into spring here in Spain and we can tell you that it is nothing like spring in the UK. It is not about waiting for the daffodils to flower but rather waiting for the water in the swimming pool to get nice and warm. The pools are closed during the winter but are still full and like the sea along the coast the water temperature plays an important part in deciding how long you stay in the pool.
Now to an ironic observation, the pools on the parks are used more by the residents during the month of May for sunbathing rather than swimming. Why is that ironic? Well it is fair to say that nearly every mobile home has a sun bathing area either on or next to the decking yet round the pool is favoured. It becomes a sociable event.
Talking ironic, it has been widely reported on the news in Spain and without doubt on the news in England as to how bad the exchange rate is with respect to the Pound verses the Euro. The good news as far as resale mobile homes are concerned is that they are priced in Pounds and as such are unaffected. The good news also extends to new UK mobile homes as they are also priced in Pounds and again as the best UK transport service is used to transport the home to Spain the price is also unaffected by the exchange rate. A small selection of the latest prices of new mobile homes made in the UK and sited on Park La Posada in Spain are:

BUYING A RESALE MOBILE HOME
The process is very easy. First choose from the homes on sale on our website, the homes you would like to view on a visit.
If a home ticks all the boxes during your visit you simply make a purchase request.
If the seller agrees to the sale we then arrange for a legal sales agreement to be drawn up and signed by all parties. This service costs just 200 Euros and it also includes a home check of the boiler, air-conditioning, cooker, fridge and freezer by the park engineers just prior to completion. Paying for this service takes the home off sale straight away.
A 10% deposit is then paid into a "Client Account" within 14 days and remains there until the completion date which will be on or before three months after an offer has been accepted. .
Just prior to the completion date the home is checked, we take possession of the home, and you will be advised to make the final payment to the seller. Once it is confirmed that the payment has been made the home is then yours.
No wonder resale mobile homes are so popular.
BUYING A NEW HOME
Buying a new mobile home or a custom-built Park Lodge Home is just as easy. It simply involves different processes. For UK manufactured mobile homes we recommend Willerby/BK Bluebird and Regal Leisure Homes.
Both manufacturers display show homes at various mobile home shows throughout the year, so you can always get to see the latest models. Regal Leisure also have the big advantage in that they are not far from Yeovil our UK base, which means we can easily arrange factory visits.
For Park Lodge Homes designed and built in Alicante it is a different process. Once a plot has been reserved you can start designing a home best suited to where it will be going. Where to put a French Door? Where the lounge should go? What view from the kitchen window?
To help you design your home we allocate a project manager to you. He will arrange a visit to the factory in Alicante so you can see for yourself all the choices you have. You can even start with a model already designed such as “The Windsor” and alter it to suit you.
No two Park Lodge Homes will look the same which means you can make the home into something special to you. You will also not be paying so much money to transport the home to the park as it will already be in Spain. This means more can be spent on the home itself.
New UK mobile home or custom built Park Lodge Home? The choice is yours after you have reserved your plot on either park. New homes require a 35% deposit and the balance paid once the home is ready to be transported.
WHY COSTA DIFFERENCE?
The name Costa Difference was chosen for a reason back in 2005. Costa as in Costa del Sol or Costa Blanca, and Difference because we want to show the difference between dedicated genuine residential mobile home parks and tourist camping sites that also allow mobile homes.
Making a difference is all down to being passionate in what we do. We are also working with park owners who share our passion. The result? We are showing two wonderful residential mobile home parks that are without doubt the best retirement parks that Spain has to offer.
Having chosen to represent residential parks only we are now tasked by the park owners to help people see for themselves if living in Spain is really for them. Spain does not suit everyone which is why that aspect of what we do is so important.
So where does our service start? We think that perhaps it has already started with you reading this and all the other information we have provided online. Maybe you now have some questions for us? If so please feel free to contact us and ask them.
Once you feel that you have found all the answers the next stage is to seriously think about coming on a visit to see a residential park and the lifestyle the residents enjoy.
On a short-dedicated visit you will have a golden opportunity to talk to residents you meet whilst on the park. Asking them questions at the time is a great idea because you will be hearing about their genuine experiences.
The Costa Difference way is very different. Our testimonials come from the residents themselves face to face. They have all gone through the same experiences. Started by asking questions, then came on a visit. After that it is back to the UK with plenty to think about.
If you do the same and moving to Spain becomes your dream, then we are going to be with you all the way.
There are many “Costa” companies on the internet selling everything to do with Spain but there is only ONE Costa Difference Mobile Homes in Spain. To find us again easily why not bookmark this page. We are at your service.

LATEST NEWS FROM SPAIN
Tens of thousands of Spaniards rallied across the country on Saturday to demand better pensions.
Pensioners braved rain and snow showers as they poured onto the streets of the capital Madrid and Barcelona to vent their anger at conservative Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy.
Pensioners all over Spain are fuming after seeing their benefits rise by an annual 0.25 in recent years, well below an official inflation rate of 1.2 percent in 2017.
The government however maintains it must balance the books somehow to stay within EU spending guidelines even as the population ages. The situation made worse of course with Spain having one of Europe's lowest birth rates.
According to Eurostat data, 28.7 percent of residents of EU states will be aged over 65 by 2080, up from 18.9 percent in 2015. Pensions will be a problem for every country by then of course.
