Buying/Selling Property in Spain! - Part 3 (to sea or not to sea?)

Not yet read Part 1 read it here and Part 2 here

So, you've decided on your location, type of property etc.  But, what about your preferred views?

Maybe you've chosen a location on the coast.  In which case the chances are you will have a sea view (at least before someone builds & blocks the view LOL). 

Maybe you've chosen a mountain location.  In which case you may/may not obtain a sea view!

Maybe you've chosen an inland location.  In which case you are unlikely to obtain a sea view.

However, from experience, most first time buyers in Spain specify a sea view!  Why?  Well, because that's what everybody 'thinks' they want!!!!

A sea view is beautiful without a doubt, especially with a coastal view too which at night is stunning with the twinkling lights etc.

However, many people don't actually consider the option of a mountain view!

When my husand & I moved to Spain we did not consider which type of view we preferred.  The choice of property was far more important to us.  Of course the view is important too.  Living in a village we would not want to find our ideal property only to discover our main view would be one of the local building yards!!!!!

We have moved several times now and I/we both agree that a mountain view is our preferred choice.  Why?  Well simply because this view changes throughout the day, there is always something newly discovered to look at, plus during the winter months the mountains can often be covered in snow which is stunning!

We have some friends who insisted on a sea view when they arrived in Spain.  Initially, they rented a property and were delighted to obtain a sea view.  A year or so later, they moved into another rental property and had a slight sea view, but were happier in the new property.

Eventually, they purchased their own property, without a sea view & are just as happy with their now mountain view!

The moral of the story!  Don't assume you have to have a sea view.  In fact, if you find the right property, a view of both allows you to have your cake and eat it.

Aproveche LOL.
