Hello everybody, 

My name is Amanda.

I have been researching buying in camposol, and I must say it looks a fabulous community to be in.

Properties are so very reasonably priced I wonder if you all can advise which is the best sector to purchase in? Which areas, if any still flood? What the deal is with the builder? 

How easy it is to get around, to the shops and the beaches etc. 

I thank you for your time.

And hope to move lock stock n all April 2018 

Thank you 

Amanda xx

Speak to Mercers estate agents - they gave us a tour of the area, showed us several properties, told us the full story of the pros & cons and never tried to be pushy or hard sell. Even showed us the properties that were hit by subsidance and have got the area a bad press so they didn't try to hide anything.

It depends on what your budget is we bought in a nice part opposite the golf course ,easy stroll to clubhouse for a drink , but far away enough in the summer from sector B when the bands are on for 4 months ,lower C prices from 40.000 plus 2 bed/3 bed

Well you are lucky you got good service from Mercers. They refused to pick me up from my hotel to look at properties. Pamela at Luz Del Sol.

I'm a holiday home owner for 10years with stays of up to 3months.It is generally a nice community with again generally nice neighbours .My advice would be to spend some time renting to get a feel of things before purchasing a house .There are things here I don't agree with ,I'm not whinging ,but the main one being the complete intrangicence of a Council that takes its taxes from our estate and won't give us services we require in return.a Council that hasn't payed the police its overtime gives you a clue of how we fare.

Take your timewhen buying a property and where, do your research and talk to expats .Some including the estate agent will tell you want to hear like Q .are there many flies in summer A .no they sleep during the day.A lot of Bs talked by these sellers .When you have found somewhere take into account (Spain can be very cold in winter and the houses are single walled and very cold )could cost a fortune to heat a few days visit in January will show you how cold it can be .Everyone is different how they live and how much money they have ,plus no one knows about the effects of Brexit yet my view is,I saw how expats suffered with there health problems in 1970/80s in Spain before they joined the Eu so personally I'd wait till that's negotiated just in case .There are private hospitals here but could wipe you out financially ,if there is no agreement in the brexit discussions (check this on the Internet)put simply it's not like the Nhs .here if you arnt a resident.If you come here as a non resident you are at the moment entitled to free Ehic emergency cover so check your health requirements as it's important .having said that the Health services here in Spain are very good as many will testify here .again my advice would be check it all out before you commit and if you can ,don't burn your bridges as a lot of people for various reasons have left Camposol ,but a lot can't because they can't afford too go back to the Uk .hope this helps and apologies  to residents both non and permanent for sounding negative it's a good place to live but the one word that covers all eventualities that's needed is money .Feel free to ask any questions.
