Michiel and Theo's story with Select Villas: a journey of Buying and Selling in Moraira

22 Mar 2024

This month, we have the pleasure of chatting with Michiel and Theo, a wonderful couple who recently embarked on the journey of both buying and selling a property with Select Villas of Moraira. They've kindly agreed to share their experiences and offer valuable insights for anyone considering entering the Spanish property market.

Love at First Sight with Moraira

Theo had always harboured a dream of living in Spain, but their initial choice of Torrevieja wasn´t quite hitting the mark, and so they were looking to move on. It wasn't until Michiel and Theo discovered Moraira that they truly found their perfect spot. Despite being unfamiliar with the area at first, they fell in love with it instantly. The beautiful El Portet Beach and the area's relaxed atmosphere ultimately convinced them to buy a villa and embrace a permanent life in this idyllic setting. They initially purchased an apartment, but their long-term dream was always for a larger property with a pool and more outdoor space to enjoy the sunshine.

Having already crossed paths with Maureen from Select Villas during previous property viewings, Michiel and Theo had established a rapport with her and were consistently impressed by her professionalism. So, when the time came to sell their current property and embark on the quest for their dream home, Select Villas was the clear choice.

Michiel and Theo were here on holidays and initially had no intention of buying anything on this trip, but after seeing their dream villa on Select Villas website that all changed. That afternoon they arranged a viewing immediately, and within just 3 days, they bought it! The location, the features, the amazing views, and the overall feel – it was love at first sight.

Why Select Villas?

Michiel and Theo believe that Select Villas' professionalism, personalised approach, coupled with our in-depth knowledge of the local market, sets us apart from other agencies. Despite numerous options in town, their initial encounter with the team here at Select Villas fostered a sense of family within the office. The team's openness and professionalism made the atmosphere comfortable, emphasizing our commitment to fostering long-term relationships.

What impressed them the most was the clear communication and transparency that was provided for each property they considered. At no point did they feel pressured or uninformed; instead, they felt empowered to make well-informed decisions at every stage, thanks to the upfront information provided by the team.

With Michiel and Theo, we really took the time to understand their needs and requirements.

Because at Select Villas, it's not just about the sale; it's about building lasting relationships and ensuring customer satisfaction throughout the entire process.

Here are some additional tips from Michiel and Theo for anyone considering buying or selling a property in Spain:

  • Come over and explore the area. Local knowledge is invaluable! Understand how the area will match your lifestyle needs. At Select Villas, everyone lives locally and were very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the area which helped.

  • Work with a lawyer and a reputable real estate agent. Working with a legal representative or lawyer is important to help you through the paperwork and legal requirements of buying and selling in Spain. Also make sure you find a real estate agent who is professional and can help you find the right property and guide you through the process.

  • Be patient. The process of buying or selling a property can take time. Be patient and don't rush into anything.

And a top tip from Select Villas, when selling your property, it's essential to ensure that all your paperwork is in order and properly registered with the town hall. This step might seem small, but it can make a huge difference in avoiding delays or unexpected hiccups once you've found a buyer. Taking care of these details upfront can significantly contribute to a smooth and stress-free sale!

We wish Michiel and Theo all the happiness in their new home!
