Good morning, I am a newbie. We are thinking of relocating to the area and would like some advice as to which parts to avoid. We are lively 65 year old who like to socialise and would like to be in walking distance to amenities, don't want to use the car too much.
At the moment we are working g our way up from Costa Tropical, Almunecar. We plan on being in Torrevieja around early Jan. Is there any estate agents we should avoid?
Many thanks

I wouldn't avoid anyone who wants to show you around but just be smart.

Ask any agent or pretend agent, there are a lot of them here

1) what have similar properties to the one on offer sold for in the last six months. Check this information out with locals and other agents.

2) ask the agent to disclose all the costs relating to the sale of the house including their own commission and once again check with a third party that the numbers add up. Anyone who suggests that they are being paid by the vendor or builder in the case of a new property is not really telling the truth. So make sure you know what their service is costing you.

Good luck.

I don`t think they are too fussed. They haven`t bothered looking in since.

You are forgetting they might be in an atlas hotel were the prospective customers are not allowed to leave the company of their rep use the internet look in agent windows leave the merc bus etc.

It`s hard to believe that that happens. But if I remember that was one of the conditions of getting a cheap flight and all expenses paid, including hotel and food. :D
