MOBILE HOME IN SPAIN NEWSLETTER ARCHIVE OCT 2011
Oct 2011** Some of the content might not be relevant on the date of reading this**
Latest: A home was added to our website recently that means it is now possible to come and live in Spain on the 5* Park La Posada for only 20,000. This home is fantastic value. Now more than ever people looking to sell their homes in the UK and move to Spain to enjoy retirement to the full without any money worries whatsoever can do so easily.
Summer is almost over: Now that the summer is coming to an end the residents can now enjoy the perfect time of year. Plenty of sunshine and pleasant evenings means much more is done on and off the park. Excursions to places like Gibraltar and Granada can be planned by the residents once more. The bowls club formed by the residents will be in full swing and looking forward to matches with other clubs on the Costa del Sol. Residents who like fishing will be going out for the day once more as they to have formed themselves into a club. It is the lifestyle that makes living on a dedicated residential mobile home park so different. All you have to worry about is how to enjoy life. You are free to take part in as much or as little as you like.
The park will also be welcoming five new residents this month as their homes start to arrive from both the UK and other parks in Spain. Steve and the team were busy over the summer showing clients who already own mobile homes the park and area. Some of the mobile home owners took advantage of our dedicated three day visits in order to see the area and of course the quality of the park itself giving them time to choose the perfect plot for their home. We are now very confident following many comments whilst on the park that Park La Posada now exceeds almost every park there is in the UK as well as Spain now in terms of quality and facilities.
Open all year: Because Park La Posada is a dedicated residential retirement park it remains open all year round and is very different to most of the mobile home parks in the UK which are only open 10 months of the year.
Although some of the home owners on the park do use their homes for long vacations until the time they actually retire it is fair to say that most home owners are resident now all year. The community spirit that has developed as a result means that new residents soon settle in and are getting as much help settling in from the residents themselves as well as the park reception.
Question asked this month: On top of the park fees are there any council taxes to pay as well? The answer is no, the only things you pay for are gas, water, electric, internet and satellite, much the same as you do in the UK. The park fees are there to provide the security and top class facilities as well as providing a system in place that ensures the residents are very well looked after. A stroll around the park will soon show you what a fantastic idea a dedicated residential retirement park really is. Everything is provided for including an interpreter to arrange all the registrations such as with the doctors.
New mobile home of the month: The Villa Delta is a home that is well worth taking a good look at. At only 39,995 fully installed on the park it is great value for money. It is a very modern design and the lounge is just perfect for Spain letting in lots of light. Add to that the chance to tint the windows as well it can be a home with a big difference. As with all our new mobile homes only a deposit is required before the home has arrived on the park.
Resale home of the month: Apart from the Willerby Salisbury which has just come on the market we can also offer an ABI Ashbourne at only 24,995 or near offer. This home is ready to move straight into and again is great value. We have always said that the lifestyle on the park is what makes living on Park La Posada so special. Resale mobile homes allow you to be part of that lifestyle straight away as everything is already in place.

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.
