"We were 100% satisfied when buying a home through Dream Spanish Homes

Budget – We had a budget in mind and Dream Spanish Homes were very helpful and knowledgeable about the other cost that we needed to factor in, which made up around 10 % on top of our purchase price. This can make a difference in your original budget so was extremely important. Amenities – Our top priority was that it was a south facing property, two or three bedroom with outdoor space at ground floor level with a community pool.

Location – The Orihuela Costa is a mixed English and Spanish community. Walking distance to the beach, shopping and places to go for entertainment, not too far away.

One-to-one in Spain – Dream Spanish Homes took complete care of our five days of viewings in advance with different estate agents. They picked us up every morning and had an itinerary set out of which properties we wanted to view.

Viewings – They showed us properties below and above our budget to give us a realistic idea of what we could expect to get within our budget, but knew if we saw something that we really liked that we could stretch that little bit more. They showed us properties further away from the sea, to show us the difference in size of the properties you could purchase the further inland you travelled. This was good as we knew even after seeing some beautiful properties, that the extra space meant less to us than being closer to the beach.

Awareness of the area – The team at Dream Spanish Homes have a lot of local knowledge of the area as most of them we spoke with in the office owned property in the Southern Costa Blanca for many years and had seen the area grow from a series of small fishing villages. We also found they had great geographical knowledge of the area and where the next new development will be so you get the most out of the money you have to buy a property.

Closing the sale – They were able to use some impressive negotiation skills when we found the right property; to made sure we got it for the correct price with discount off the original price. This left us with a little money to make some changes to the property.

Satisfaction – 100 % satisfied.

Recommendation to others – We would 100% recommend Dream Spanish Homes if you are thinking of purchasing a home in Spain. Their testimonials speak for themselves, throughout the entire process everyone we dealt with at the company was professional, conscientious and motivated. The whole team worked hard, illustrated a great understanding of contract details, negotiation etiquette and documentation."
