Buying a Holiday Home in a Complex

One of the choices for buying a holiday home in Spain is to buy an apartment or house within a complex with communal facilities. These often include easy access to restaurants, shops, and beaches. But what payments come with this kind of holiday home? How should you decide if you've found the right complex for you? Read on for tips when looking at this type of property.


Why Buy Property in a Complex?

Complex properties often offer their owners security and confidence, being part of a secure gated development with well-maintained communal spaces. They also offer a community of fellow homeowners who are likely to be Brits and other foreigners, which can help newcomers in making friend.

What Are the Costs?

These kinds of poperties involve regular commiunity fees that pay for the maintenance of the complex's communal spaces and whatever facilities are provided. The amount varies between complexes, and so is something to consider when looking for your ideal holiday home. Complexes with more facilities or in particularly desired areas will have higher fees.

What Kind of Complexes Should I Look At?

Make sure you consider what you want out of your holidays there. Some complexes are quieter, others cater to families and larger groups of holidaymakers. Some are more seasonal, others cater to holidays year-round.

Does it Matter Where my Unit is?

Yes! It's important to guage how busy it will be around the unit you're looking at, what the views are like, how accessible it is, how close it is to the facilities you are likely to use. These things might make or break future holidays, so make sure both the location of the complex and the unit are what you're looking for.

How Will I Manage my Property?

Larger complexes tend to have property management services on the complex that offer key-holding and rental services. However, you might have to use, or choose, a local firm. Research your options to find the best fit for you.
