Award Win for Spanish Estate Agent Amidst Soaring Sales
Murcia estate agent Mercers has taken five star “Best Real Estate Agency Spain” in the International Property Awards Europe in association with Yamaha. The news completes a fantastic September which has seen the highest sales volume since 2005.
Chris Mercer, Director of the 28-year-long-
It seems the hard work is paying off as not only did September bring an award win but it also delivered Mercers’ best sales figures in seven years. Buyers are coming from various countries, Belgium to Sweden, Spain to Holland, and a strengthening of interest from the UK which is reassuring. Very few buyers are pure investors, most are looking for personal use maybe with an eye on wintering or retiring in the region in the future.
Chris continues, “Like the rest of Spain we have been affected by the “crash” however house hunters are homing in on Murcia for a number of reasons. Prices are very attractive, most are buying within the 50,000 to 150,000 euro price bracket, and even at the bottom end of that range you can still get two bedrooms on a golf course. Meanwhile the all-new Corvera Airport will be fully operational by Easter week 2013 and the Paramount-licensed theme park has pledged to open its doors in 2015 – this all helps to explain our trend-bucking surge in sales. We’re also lucky enough to have a loyal and skilled sales force, a strong online presence and we do plenty of marketing regardless of the economic climate.”
To cap a fantastic month, Mercers has just taken the keys to a new office premises within the Camposol Golf resort. A few metres from their old HQ, the new office was until recently occupied by a Spanish high street bank and has the advantage of a corner position with no less than five window displays. Mercers has been based in Camposol Golf since 1998 and steadily raised its public profile on the development over the years.
On the Market in Murcia:
Ref NEC87 – Emeralda Villa, Camposol Golf, Mazarron
This two bedroom two bathroom Emeralda-style villa has a large built area of 139m² and is set on a private 600m² plot complete with 8m x 4m swimming pool and summer kitchen / barbecue with remotely controlled mood lighting. Unique to Camposol, this villa was intended to be a three bedroom floorplan but the current owners opted for space and reduced it to two larger bedrooms, one with a large terrace accessed via French doors. It would be possible to re-convert back to three bedrooms with relative ease. Extras include satellite TV, air-conditioning, a wood burner in the lounge, a newly fitted kitchen with granite worktops, internet connection, alarm system and irrigation for the garden. Camposol Golf has an 18-hole golf course, four star Spa hotel and plenty of shops, restaurants and bars on site. The blue flag beaches and marina of Mazarron are within a 15 minute drive.
The price has recently been reduced by 20,000 euros to 179,995 euros (approx 145,000 GBP)
