MOBILE HOME IN SPAIN NEWSLETTER ARCHIVE APR 2009
April 2009 ** Some of the content might not be relevant on the date of reading this**
This months newsletter is dedicated to Roz, for reasons we are about to tell you.
Roz had already been on an inspection trip (fact finding) last November and also had her best friend (of many years standing) along to make sure she was doing the right thing. They both enjoyed themselves and Roz kindly left positive feedback meaning that the trip did what it was supposed to do.
So why are we writing about her now? Well this March they came on a second visit and so were shown more of what the area had to offer as well as a second look at the parks themselves, Roz retires in July so this time it was a serious look, with the best friend s approval of course.
Now to the funny part. Having chosen the home they liked on the park they liked (using the reserve for 6 months deal) they still had one day to go before flying back to the wet and cold. Martin their guide decided to take them out and show them the lakes at Iznajar for the day as it was nice and sunny. So off they went, and to add atmosphere Martin had his MP3 player tuned to the car radio.
Here is what happened:
The village is a typical white village surrounded by lakes in the mountains. At just the right moment Martin played Andrea Bocelli – Por Ti Volare (Con Te Partir ) whilst driving round smooth curves in the road surrounded by olive groves and mountain views, and as the classical style music grew to a crescendo the village and lakes came into view looking fantastic in the bright sunshine, it is a wonderful sight with turquoise coloured lakes, and what were the two girls doing? Crying their eyes out!! Martin has had his leg pulled no end by the rest of the team (once they were told) for having that effect on two women on a sight seeing tour. Martin has tried to say that it was nothing to do with him or his jokes.
Roz however (despite the tears hidden behind borrowed sun glasses) was so impressed she said wanted to leave feedback again telling everyone about what she was shown and how she felt, however, Company policy only allows for one feedback per customer on the website so she could not do it. We have as you now know compromised (as always) and have made her story the subject of this month s newsletter which means she becomes the first client to be mentioned in a newsletter. Thanks Roz for letting us tell the story our way.
Back to the newsletter:
Regular website visitors might have seen on the site that certain homes are under offer and seem to be for quite some time. This is because it is possible to by some homes over 6 months and during that period the home remains off sale and under offer. It only requires 10% to be paid which saves loosing that dream home whilst things are sorted in the UK
With the parks we represent being residential style parks with only mobile homes allowed, we were pleased to have helped several clients move their own mobile homes in Spain that were sited on parks that were mainly camp sites onto Park La Posada. It was not something we had considered offering in the past but having seen how happy the clients were after we moved them we can now offer the same service to anyone who has a suitable mobile home less than 5 years old.
So why not recommend homes on camp sites we hear you ask?
In short, security, lifestyle, costs and far worse, try selling it afterwards. We will not offer for sale any mobile home that is sited on a camp site. The fees are higher and the plot sizes tend to be smaller.

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
The head of the Red Cross urged European Union member states on Sunday to follow Spain's example of welcoming the rejected migrant ship and so "put into practice" the humanitarian values currently being promoted by the EU.
Spain has "opened its arms at a time when many countries are rejecting refugees," said Elhadj As Sy of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies in the Spanish port of Valencia, where he was overseeing the arrival of 630 migrants from the Aquarius rescue boat.
