Hi Any one had any experience with mobile home's. I'm not sure of buying one or a brick built home. The way thing's are going i might not have a choice as properties are starting to move.So i might have to buy a mobile home. i don't drive so that don't help. So i need things on the doorstep and airport too. The cheap properties on Composol you need a car as shops to far.And i be coming on my own. Should i keepaway from mobile homes. or would they be ok for me. its the grund rent that concerns me some are vary high. Thank you nice for any feed back if anyone has experience with mobile homes

We have a static caravan in the uk as a uk base. Whilst it is very comfy, warm enough in winter with central heating, insulation is not good and you would cook in a Spanish summer. The minimum standard should be the BS for residential use. Even a €80000 6-berth only takes a team of workers 30 minutes to assemble onto the chassis, so you can imagine that the fit of doors, windows and guttering can be poor.

In our experience Spanish buildings vary from mediocre to poor, but they would probably hold their value better than a caravan.

We live on camping Totana in a 5 year old mobile home it is massive it is done to a continental spec with the correct climate insulation it’s fully double glazed and air conned Many people who have lived in camposol have decided to buy on our site and I’m not surprised of what I have seen of the state of the buildings subsiding and falling into dis-repair 

I wouldn’t think twice about buying a mobile home here or even a log cabin on here the only thing is you would need a car or scooter 

Hope I have been of some help

And the annual ground rates / service fees would be very helpful for Eric, and closeness to shops without a car?

First thing to establish is your budget there's many bargain apartments around Santiago  La  Ribera  I know of people picking up a 1 bed for 30.000 euro and you have all the amenities in the town including buses to alicante murcia city and Cartagena

My personal preference would be for bricks and mortar if affordable - that's me thinking about potential resale value in the future. Whatever your budget though - do be sure to set aside 13% to cover fees - They may not quite be that much but if you factor that in and they're less, you've got yourself a nice little bonus.

I'd suggest having a look on the large online property websites such as  A Place in the Sun and Rightmove (Spain). That's what we did and if possible, draw up a shortlist, contact one of the estate agents and get them to take you around to view them all in one go (we did that too).

There are also some groups on FB with properties listed at under 50k Euros and some of those look charming.

Good luck!
