MOBILE HOME IN SPAIN NEWSLETTER ARCHIVE APRIL 2008
Apr 2008 ** Some of the content might not be relevant on the date of reading this**
First the good news, we have managed once again to negotiate a special offer with the Hotel Castilla in Antequera so that more people can enjoy a 3 day 2 night visit to see the wonderful town of Antequera, the villages of Mollina and Alameda as well as the parks themselves. You can now come and take a look with friends or family.
The offer itself: For the month of April you can now book an Inspection Visit for 4 persons for the price of 3 on all inspection trips booked and taken during the month of April (Flights not included)
This means that if four of you want to come and take a look you only pay the 49.00 per person Inspection Visit charge for three of you, the fourth person enjoys a free stay in Spain comprising of airport transfers, 2 nights hotel accommodation as well as seeing the town, villages and parks.
Ideal if friends or family are thinking of owning a mobile home in Spain because you all get to see everything at the same time. Fancy coming to take a look with family and friends? Just give Derick a call on 0117 318 2188 who will be happy to arrange things.
The only condition is that the accommodation must be a maximum of 2 rooms booked per night, either double or twin.
What will we be showing you? Depending on what time you arrive we normally try and give you a quick guided tour of the parks by car first and then take you to the hotel to relax. We do this so that you have something to talk about during your first evening in Antequera. This is easy as all 3 parks are so different.
Next morning we collect you from the hotel and give you a quick tour of Antequera, you would have seen what the town is like at night already if you were not to tired. We also show you the villages of Mollina and Alameda and of course a more detailed look at the Parks. Once on the parks we will show you the homes that are for sale that are likely to interest you. You will then see what you can get for your money and more to the point you will see all the different models and decking styles..
Anyway enough about Inspection Visits, we do not want to spoil all the fun and we cannot express the wow factor in words anyway.
So what else is new?
With the arrival of spring the swimming pools are being made ready and within 2 weeks we expect them all to be in full swing. It is quite normal for the swimming pools to be open from mid April until the end of October. With spring also comes the ideal temperatures to go off in the car exploring and although the cities of Granada and Sevilla are cold in the winter they are fabulous this time of year. Just check out the weather for Malaga province and you will see what we mean.
There are lots of good hotels right in the city centres so a good weekend away is easily to arrange and you are also making the very most of your home in Spain. Some residents also have their motor homes or caravans here so weekends in Portugal are also a good idea. The Algarve is less than one days drive from here.
Back to the newsletter,
As you know we at Costa Difference Ltd normally specialise on resale mobile homes that are sited on the parks near Antequera. Well this month we have something very different to tell you. We have on Park La Posada a brand new 2 bedroom Aitana Prestige ex show home now being sold by our company as a resale even though it is brand new.
How does that work? Well the home has now been sited on a prime plot on phase two and the plot has been gravelled in preparation the same as a resale would be. The sale will also include up to 40 square metres of decking built (the max allowed on the park) which means that as with resale s all the hard work would have been done for you.. You design the decking you want and we get it built straight away. Now to the best part, the home including the decking and fully installed on plot 92 (telephone, Internet, Electric and water) is for sale at a one time only price of 49000 EUROS, which when you convert to pounds even at today s miserable exchange rate makes it a very attractive home indeed.
Sounds interesting? Why not e-mail email@example.com requesting more details and some pictures.
The other news is for those who are also subscribing to the price alert service; you will soon be getting details of a new park near Cordoba that will only have 5 mobile homes and all of them around the swimming pool. The homes are also being sold the same as resales with decking, sheds and everything else in place, so keep an eye on your inbox as there will only be 5 sold. The park already has a hotel, bar/restaurant and of course a lovely swimming pool. The homes have been specially designed by Ibiza Homes so that the French doors at the front open out onto decking overlooking the swimming pool. If you are not a price alert subscriber you can join via our website if you like the idea of a private park with only 5 mobile homes on it.
With everything now going on, April looks like it could be a very interesting month for all the team with the offers we have this month as well as the pending price alert and as always we are looking forward to showing everyone just what it is like to live in Spain.
as pleased that the Inspection Visit was a success in helping you make an informed decision. Either way it will be nice to see you and show you around.

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.
