Hi everyone. I am looking to buy on Gata residential. Anyone got any opinions about the estate, good or bad?

Hi guy, 

you would always and forever be reliant on a car, even in the event of illness, but I assume you've already factored that in. 

Also there is no community feel to the Urbanisation  (I'm told)

Hope you get more responses

Steve

A snob speaks! There are the "better" areas and the not so prestigious. One seems to hear more adverse comments about Gata Residencial than favourable ones. I've only been up there once - high winds - microwave polution (opinions differ widely on this) - steep access road that could be hard on a car if one goes up and down 365 times a year. Easy to buy and hard to sell so prices are low - beware of one way tickets! But having said that all property is hard to sell these days. Now some positives - magnificent views - cool in summer (bitter in winter) - Monroes at the bottom of the hill - music and nice bar, good English food, good cheap beer compared to the snob locals in Jávea. Nearest supermarket (Más y Más) 5km. Denia 12km. Jávea 12km approx. Beaches - 12km approx. Nearest town (apart from Gata de Gorgos) is Pedreguer, a typically Spanish place with slow queues in the banks - best go on to Ondara fro quicker bank service.

"All properties are hard to sell these days" Sorry Ancient Printer this is a myth. I can tell you about several modern apartments that have sold in Beniarbeig within one year of listing. And in Denia.

One year is still a long time, don't you think? I know that on the whole English property sells much more quickly but then the transfer costs are incredibly low compared with here. Of course some bargain price places will sell quickly if they are well located. The "white boxes" as we have come to know them go well but the hidden commissions would frighten you with their implications for resale later. These newbuilds have often not seen a gota fría or mud rain!

Ancient Printer - keep believing your own ideas if that's what you need to cling onto, but when someone offers a contrasting view it's sometimes worth balancing it with your own. 

Within a year was what I said - that doesn't mean that all the property took 12 months to sell. Yes, I'm referring to apartments but also some townhouses. You don't like the idea that property is on the move, presumably because yours isn't!

It is difficult to be objective on the Spanish market. Each of us sees different examples of the market depending on where we live or what work we do. Estate agents must promote a bright picture. Those who can't sell, the opposite. I understand that under Spanish law, details of actual sales are prohibited under data protection laws. On UK websites you can actually see EXACTLY what a property sold for and on what date plus comprehensive statistics. Sad we don't have that here! Yes we have property that we'd like to sell but it is not on the market. We simply keep our ears to the ground with several local agents to guage the best time to do so.
