In times of high demand for properties on the Costa del Sol, the number of property advisers is also growing explosively. The challenge for home buyers without prior experience in the area, therefore, is to research and select the adviser(s) who, in a decent and professional manner, will be able to safeguard the buyer’s interests throughout the entire purchasing process and, very importantly, after the purchase agreement is signed.
The decision can in many cases be difficult to make, as prices often do not differ significantly from each other. Instead, in each situation, it often depends on one’s feeling when it comes to location, area and interior design.

The Spanish word for insurance is Seguros, and yes, it is important that you as a homeowner cover yourself in the same way as you know from home. The alternative may end up with incalculable economic convictions, which, all things being equal, are further complicated by language barriers.
