Try Flemings estate agent. They have an office next to Supersol in Torre.

You could also try Joe at Burrianna Properties in Nerja. He doesn't only deal with Nerja property and as friend of his, I know you will get excellent service from him.

Good luck, it's a great area.

Have a look at http://www.kyero.com It has properties from loads of estate agents.
I've got an inferiority complex, but it's not a very good one!

Thanks everyone.
I was trying to look for villa by myself.I don't trust real states. I know a few Spanish webpage as www.yaencontre.com but not English where people write a free ad to sell their villas.

Hello

With all due respect all one has to do is book in a hotel in Torre, hire a car and drive around. Decide the village or area and you will find hundreds of villas to buy, at rock bottom prices.

I would suggest you see many villas and read up on the internet get a good english speaking lawyer and do not trust agents words.

Also a survey , (aparejadores ) have a though check done with the land registary, also remember you have to pay around %16 on top for your buying fees etc.

Gone are the days of instant buying at inflated prices, never rush into anything or be pushed into it,

Buy in haste repent at leisure........................ has you know from UK TV on buying property.

Apart from that the area around Torre and especially inland to my favouite is Periana and the surrounding hamlets all within 25 mins drive of Torre.

Depends what you want really. What's a villa? and what is 'near' Torre?

I would say avoid estate agents too - if you can, although rumour has it their appalling commission rates (appalling for buyers/sellers not them) have been reduced.

If you find anything in the Torre/Velez area I can recommend an excellent (and I mean that) gestor. Totally straight, well organised, and knows exactly what he is doing.

There is a big difference between being stuck 'out the back' - which is great if that is what you want and being near to Torre - with all the tourism (slightly less given the recession).

Always worth asking the likes of Lynn and Dave in the Viva bar in Torre, or even further up the coast at Algarrobo Costa (spl?) in Bar Granada.

But as an indication, we have a small semi-detached old stone house, with a casa chica out the back, a large trastero, no land but animal rights - and we would expect at least what you are looking for if not more.

Don't forget the rates on villas are higher - so I hear.

As bad a reputation Estate agents have I think I would prefer them to asking a couple in a bar :shock:

hehe nice one katy

by the way there is no rumour about appaling commission rates,its true,i had my bar on the market for 175e a few years back,one agent had it at 225e,idiots,had no leg to stand on either if they had got me a buyer

there are a few exceptions of course that do do it properly

all the big crooks like viva and ads have gone and most of the ex pat bar owners that tried it ie bambu bar that were on tele a few years ago

these people make me sick
