Well that is the budget out of the way for another year. As usual it had doom and gloom written all over it. Drink, cigs and petrol all costing more.
Not so here in Spain thank goodness. Nothing here has changed except that the pound has begun its recovery. It will continue that way if our politicians can keep their mouths shut for long enough.
If ever there was a right time to consider a move to Spain and live in a mobile home it is now. Cost of living is dearer in the UK. The prices of mobile homes in Spain are now very keen. There is a lot of choice of some quality homes such as a 4 year old Willerby Vogue for only 39,500 with a plot and decking that will knock your socks off. Everything already in place.
Why are resale mobile homes such a good idea? In short, if you are at the thinking stage you know you can come, take a look at the finished product and return to the UK to give it a lot more thought or simply dismiss the idea altogether. It all begins with coming to take a look.
What does coming to take a look cost?
Simple, a low cost flight plus 49 per person (based on 2 sharing). You get 3 days in Spain and more to the point you get to see the way of life here first hand. You are shown the parks by people who live on them. Not a salesman in sight.
Antequera has been described as the cross roads of Andaluc a, reason being that there is a motorway heading in every direction, Malaga, Cordoba – Madrid, Cadiz, and Sevilla.
Why is this information so significant?
We can report that Mr. I need a holiday again Martin has now finally had his long awaited holiday on the Costa Del Luz in Tariffa. Reports back was that it was wonderful. The village of Vejar de la Frontera was it seems outstanding.
The cost of his holiday?
2 hours driving and 5 nights in a first class hotel for 50 Euros a night for the two of them. To give you some idea how easy it is to get away and enjoy yourself he is also driving to Portugal in June for a weeks holiday (takes about 3 hours), he is also going to Madrid as well in July for a few days and having found some cheap flights from Madrid airport he is popping over to Lanzarote for a week.
Living in Spain is just that, living. There is so much to see and do and the one thing Martin has found is that it does not have to be expensive and yet very easy to do. For a start there is no need to hire a car. Just look at the map and see how far you can get in 5 hours.
And finally, Steve has just been instructed to sell a double unit park show home already sited on Flamingo Park as a resale even though it has never been lived in. It is seven and a half metres by eight metres 2 bedroom and is furnished to a very high standard including a fully fitted kitchen with white goods as standard right down to microwave, dishwasher as well as the usual items. It also includes a small decking area built in front as well as three air-conditioning units.
If you are looking for a large home on a very quiet park then this will really interest you at only 55.000. You are not paying transport, installation or entrance fees as it is already there. You are offered a new home at a resale price. For details such as floor plan and of course pictures contact firstname.lastname@example.org

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
Air-traffic controllers at Barcelona’s El Prat have announced a series of 24-hour strikes over the summer in an ongoing dispute over staff shortages.
The industrial action by workers from the air-traffic control centre at El Prat will begin on June 20th, a few days before the school holidays here in Spain and the summer holiday season really gets underway.
The dates of the 24-hour strikes have not been confirmed as yet but any action will affect flights in and out of El Prat plus flights to the Balearic Islands and airports on Spain’s eastern coast.
The strikes have been called by the Air-Traffic Controllers' Union (USCA) which is embroiled in an ongoing dispute over staffing levels.
USCA has repeatedly warned that there are an insufficient number of air traffic controllers to cover flight traffic forcing controllers to work overtime in order to provide cover.
