Hi,

We are due over in 2 weeks time to look for a property to buy. We have a small budget, can anyone recommend areas in the heart of town with all amenities.

Thanks

Kevin

We viewed a few nice apts with Talmar Properties. We got their name from ‘idealista.com’. Make sure to state clearly your max budget when making contact with agent. There are probably estate agents on most central streets! Good luck with search!

I can't help with locations but, as you are on a small budget, don't forget to factor in about 15% on top of the buying price for taxes and other expenses.

Also make sure that you employ your own abogado to handle the legal side and definitely don't use either the inmobiliario or their abogado to act for you. Their interests are noy your interests!

Prices vary so much, so it really depends on what you want/need from your property, and what your budget is. Some areas are great, some not so. Is it right in the centre of Torrevieja you want, or further down towards Playa Flamenca or up towards La Mata. It's a massive area with so many different ways of living. I'm assuming you have been before so know the area?

Most of central torrevieja is well served with a entities, I'm sure once you're out here you will be able to gauge if the areas will work for you, or not. Please do thorough research on any area before you buy, ideally come out and rent for a wile. Torrevieja is a lot quieter now than it was during high summer and will get quieter still during winter. Summer is rammed and you will be like sardines on the beach etc.

The areas called PlayaCura, Centro , Bus station and av. Habaneras (in for sale adverts) will get you within walking distance to shops, beaches, transport and city life as far as it goes. Neufragos gets you close to a beach and some shops. Not many buses pass though. Los Locos depends. The areas around Habaneras/Carrefour shopping centers is not to be confused with the av. Habaneras area. The shopping centers are taxi distance to city center and beaches.
