the big ask – pretty please…

Some of you may remember that I have a favour to ask. I alluded to this in my post a word in your ear from June 2015. And now finally the time has come to ask for your help.

My partner David and I have been trying to sell a property here in Spain for a while. Although the real estate market has picked up and properties are definitely selling again, ours is a very special property, rather outside the popular budget, but cost per square metre of living space is exceptional.

I have developed a few marketing resources to assist with marketing

a website

a Facebook page

a virtual walk-through video tour

All that remains is to launch this information and hope to attract some attention. And that is where you come in. And you could even earn yourself some commission into the bargain.

It would be great if you could like and share on Facebook, twitter and whatever other social media you use. Perhaps forward details to a real estate agent in your area.

The property is situated in the beautiful mountain village of Cómpeta, only an hour’s drive from Málaga airport and thirty minutes from the beaches of the Costa del Sol. It is a bustling village of around 4,000 people living in the centre and surrounding countryside, including expats of many different nationalities. But nevertheless Cómpeta remains very Spanish and uncommercialised, with narrow winding streets and a charming main square dominated by the sixteenth century church. You can learn more about Cómpeta on the property website here

Cómpeta is very popular with Scandinavians, Dutch and Belgians, and of course the British, but the foreign population has nationalities from far and wide, many who live here full time and some who visit now and then. It is a very popular walking destination and is busy throughout the cooler months with hiking groups and during the summer with families seeking the sun in a more tranquil area, away from the coast but within easy reach for a dip in the sea. There is great potential for holiday rental income when property is not in use by the owners.

If you are successful in finding a buyer we will happily pay a “finder’s fee” on completion of the sale, whether through an agent or direct. Or just send me details of an agent you think might be interested in marketing the property and I will get in touch directly.

I will also be very happy to receive any feedback or suggestions for alternative marketing strategies.

Many thanks for taking the time to read this post and I look forward to hearing from you if you have any ideas.

    You’re not planning to go back to cold and wet England, are you?

      No Margaret, we don’t actually live in that huge property but in a tiny converted stable in the next village.

      I am just about to take a look at your blog.


I would love some feedback - tell me what you think.....
