MOBILE HOME IN SPAIN NEWSLETTER ARCHIVE NOV 2008
Nov 2008 ** Some of the content might not be relevant on the date of reading this**
November is the time of year that once again flight bargains can be found and so all of November as well as leading up to the end of the first two weeks in December the team do not have time to think about Christmas which of course is just around the corner.
Christmas in Spain is a very interesting time. The Spanish have their Christmas dinner on the evening of the 24th. Nothing is open that night. However, the following day when all the British are cooking and enjoying their dinner the Spanish bars and restaurants are open and it is business as usual. For clients who have been on Inspection Visits in the past and have met Martin will know he will be doing his thing avoiding Christmas and will be tucking into a Spanish steak in the Hotel Tempranillo next door to Park La Posada. Not a cracker in sight.
What about the residents? Well they have the best of both worlds, weather is good they eat outside, quite often with all the friends on the park getting together, or they have a traditional dinner at home with family who are visiting. If however, they to are thinking of eating out in the hotel we have to tell them that table 7 next to the open log fire has already been booked and wild horses will not shift Martin once he is there enjoying himself.
The next important date for the Spanish is the Three Kings, they arrive on the 5th of January and of course the 6th is a bank holiday. This is when the children get their presents although these days they get them at Christmas as well. So how does that leave us? Well, in order to give any Inspection Visit a real taste of Spain we have to make the last starting date for a December Inspection Visit the 19th of December and then the first starting date for an inspection visit in 2009 the 7th of January. If you think all the team here in Spain will all be enjoying a holiday during that time please read on, we are going to be very busy indeed.
Now to some breaking news: Work has now started on a brand new residential style park Las Vistas (The Views) and the first homes will be going on in June 2009. What makes this park special? Every home will have wall to wall mountain views. The location is fantastic. There is already a bar and restaurant in situ as well as a swimming pool. The new residents will be able to use it the moment their home arrives. It is ideal for those who are set to retire later next year or even in 2010. All it takes is a site visit and if you love the area and park location a small reservation secures your 200 sq metre plot.
The full launch of the website for the park will be mid January 2009 and that will be when dedicated Inspection Visits will start. Once that happens you will be able to see for yourself in the comfort of your own home just how fantastic his park is going to be. For those who would like a sneak preview before it goes live let Steve know on email@example.com and he will send you lots of information straight after New Years Day just before the official launch.
Finally, if you are keen to get over here and own a mobile home in Spain and are in a position to buy now why not take a good look at the resale homes that are on offer. Great value and with lots of extras. Buying is easy and totally risk free which is why so many have sold this year.

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 UK mobile home or a custom-built residential Park Lodge Home is very easy. It simply involves slightly different processes.
For UK manufactured mobile homes we are partnered with Mobile Homes Abroad Ltd the largest exporter of UK mobile homes. Check out the New Mobile Homes link above to see which UK manufacturers are represented.
For Park Lodge Homes designed and built in Alicante and Burgos it is a different process. Once a plot has been reserved you can either buy a predesigned by us home or start designing your own home exactly how you want it.
A short visit to the factory in Alicante is all it takes. Where to put a French Door? Where the lounge should go? What view from the kitchen window? Questions the designer will help you with
We also offer ready designed custom-built Park Lodge homes with a new show area going onto Park La Posada. Check out the Park Lodge Homes link at the top.
New UK mobile home or custom-built residential Park Lodge Home? The choice is yours after you have reserved your plot on a park. New homes require a 35% deposit and the balance paid once the home is ready to be transported from the UK. Park Lodge Homes require a 30% deposit and the balance when the home is ready to leave the factory.
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 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
A Spanish town in northern Spain has said that it will fine anybody who is seen buying items from illegal street vendors. The fine will be in the form of a fixed penalty of €300.
The order made in the resort of Salou has come in to effect this week with the ruling "The purchase or acquisition in the public space of food, beverages and other products from unauthorized street vending" will be punished with the hefty fine.
In another regulation, the sale or action of street vending “without the corresponding license" will also be sanctioned.
The town council, in a bid to clean up the area, also declared it would penalise those who drop litter without using public bins with fines of between €100 and €400.
