You are not alone, embrace Sotogrande’s virtual viewings.
Many of us, all over Europe, are totally fed up with the COVID19 situation, confinement restrictions, and the never-ending announcements from governments changing the rules either for the worst or the best. This is making some individuals fortunate enough look at options and reevaluate where they live. Trends to get out of big cities and relocate to the suburbs is now quite established. Buyers are looking for more space to accommodate home/digital studying and working. In Europe moving to a different country which improves your lifestyle is also an option.
Sotogrande is experiencing some of this action here in southern Spain.
All agents are experiencing a huge increase in demand for properties as the resort offers much of what people are seeking, namely, low-density urbanization, good communication, fantastic weather, very good internet connection, a very good school, and good security. Additionally, Sotogrande offers property at what can be considered reasonably priced when compared to other areas along the costa del sol. Now with the work-from-home and virtual school culture, it makes more and more sense to combine lifestyle with work and studies and live your life with a better purpose.
So, if you are one of these fortunate people who is looking to move to Sotogrande there are a couple of key points to consider.
1. You are not alone!
As markets become more competitive you will realize that you are not the only one looking for a change and a different home. When you finally find that perfect property you must be prepared to act fast, and therefore must be ready to move ahead with your purchase. What does this entail? Simply put:
2. Have a good relationship with an agent in Sotogrande. One who has relationships and direct contact with property owners, and a good selection of inventory.
3. Have a relationship with a bank or mortgage provider. Maybe even have a pre-approved mortgage agreement in place. Finding your ideal home and missing out because you had not prepared your finances can be heartbreaking.
4. View what you can from home before travelling to Sotogrande. – take virtual tours.
