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 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.
