It’s been 8 months since our last Moraira and Javea property news update. Time fly’s!
This year started very well as we reported previously. Thankfully many more clients have decided to use our services and we have continued to be very busy.
Many of the leading estate agents have also reported having a very busy year. Regardless of the dire economics we all face, there has been a glut of buyers ready with their cash.
The biggest problem has been and continues to be the significant reduction in the average property budget that buyers now have in relation to the bulk of property prices out there.
Consequently the availability of quality property stock that falls into the price band that people can afford has diminished and the amount of legwork involved with finding an affordable property has increased substantially for all concerned. You have to kiss a lot of frogs!
Over 93% of enquiries are for less than 400,000 euros and 70% of these are for less than 300,000 euros.
Having spoken to many agents they have confirmed a similar enquiry pattern.
For the majority of properties for sale, agents are struggling to close the reality gap between vendor and purchaser expectations.
Quality properties that do fall into the mainstream affordability band and represent value for today’s money have continued to sell throughout the year and expect next year to follow the same trend.
We have had a very busy year doing just that for our many clients and this is where a property finding expert can help you find quality property quickly and help you decipher the best from the rest in a short space of time.
