MOBILE HOME IN SPAIN NEWSLETTER ARCHIVE SEP 2008
Sept 2008 ** Some of the content might not be relevant on the date of reading this**
September is here again and that means the hottest months of summer have ended and one of the best times to be in Spain has arrived. Not too hot yet fantastic weather to get out and enjoy yourselves.
Two of the team however will not be enjoying the weather throughout September as they will be in the UK Saturday the 20th and Sunday the 21st of September at Westfield Caravans of Blackpool. They are there as part of the annual weekend shows that Westfield Caravans hold to exhibit the new models being launched for 2009. They are there to give the show a Spanish feel.
It will be Martin & Derick who will be there during those two days and for those who are thinking of retiring to Spain you will have a golden opportunity to ask as many questions as you would like, see photos of La Posada Park as well as get to see over 50 display mobile home models as well. The stand will be easy to find. Knowing Martin it will be near the food hall.
If you are lucky enough to live close to Blackpool it will be great to see you if you fancy a good day out either on the Saturday or the Sunday and for those who live further away why not think about planning a weekend away, you will get to see the lights as well. Steve will be happy to send directions to Westfield Caravans if required. Simply e-mail him on firstname.lastname@example.org
Why Blackpool we hear you ask. Well it is quite simple; we work very closely with Westfield Caravans and our customers actually buy the mobile home direct from them. This means that as soon as you have bought the home the home is yours and all that remains is for us to get it to Spain and site it on your pre chosen plot. The whole deal is as safe as houses if you excuse the pun.
One other reason for using Westfield Caravans is that they have a huge display of mobile homes from all the major manufacturers, you also get the chance to snap up the ex display special offers that they run on a regular basis saving 1000,s of pounds
For those customers who prefer to buy a resale with all the hard work done there are some real bargains to be had. On Park La Vina there is an Atlas Status at a ridiculous price of 29,500 and what is more it is on an end plot with views as well. On Park La Posada there is a good selection of homes that are less than 4 years old including an Atlas Oakwood Super for only 39,995. Take a look at the park itself on www.parquelaposada.com and you will see what a fantastic park it really is.
For those who are serious about retiring to Spain now is a good time to come and see for yourself. You then have a choice of new and resale. Flight deals are now back on after the summer rush and for the second year running we will be maintaining our 3 day 2 night inspection visits at only 49 per person based on 2 people sharing a hotel room. You can if you wish extend the visit to 5 nights at a cost of only 18.00 per person per night which will give you a further 3 days to enjoy the town of Antequera if you wish. Time to check out the flight deals offered by the low cost airlines we think. If it is more information you would like simply fill in the form at https://www.costadifference.com/mobilehomeinspection_trips.htm and we will e-mail them to you.

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
A Spanish woman from Rioja, who is a teacher at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland Florida, has described her ‘nightmare’ in being caught up in the shooting rampage with students.
Patricia Rivas was with a class of five pupils when 19-year-old gunman Nikolas Cruz entered the school grounds and opening fire with an assault rifle, eventually killing 17 people.
The teacher heard the fire alarm which was a trick by the gunman to bring more people out into range. She was about to leave the class when she heard a fellow member of staff shout “Code Red”, it was then that she realised something more sinister was going on.
"I heard 'Code Red Code Red' and in that moment reacted very quickly, we started to run to safety," she told RTVE in an interview.
She followed the protocol put in place by the school for such an event and returned her pupils to the classroom where she thought it safer for them. They then all hid in a store room.
She and her pupils remained quietly in the storeroom for around an hour, watching live TV coverage of events at the school on her mobile phone.
Her quick thinking ensured her pupils remained safe.
