These and many other questions come to us from our clients. It’s for this reason we took the decision to write about different situations: buying a second-hand home, invest in construction, refurbish or extend your villa or go for a new build.
In this article we will give you general guidelines for the purchase of second-hand villas on the Costa Blanca. Having one of our offices in the privileged town of Moraira at the Costa Blanca, we will be happy to help you with the purchase decision and subsequent refurbishment and extension of your home.
The possibilities are endless, but it is convenient that in the acquisition of any second-hand property you ask an architect for advice to evaluate the condition of the building and at least see the most obvious options.
If you are looking for investment in Costa Blanca, it is convenient to analyze the market price. Comparing properties with similar characteristics, such as conservation, materials, construction year and location. The most loved locations in Costa Blanca are Moraira, Benissa, Jávea, Denia and Altea. Sea views are always a plus to resell a refurbished property as an investment.
Once you have acquired a second-hand property at the Costa Blanca it is convenient to remeasure and redraw the complete property and inspect the structure to evaluate the multiple possibilities that the house has: extension or refurbishment adapted to the needs of the new owner. For this you will need an architect. It is important that several decisions such as putting a new floor on top of the existing structure will need reinforcement and in this case it is worth it to extend on ground floor or maybe demolish a part of the existing building to adapt the structure and build two new floors, always trying to reduce costs.
As architects, we always seek to find a balance between the needs and aesthetics of your home. We look for results according to the climate with light colors and shadow areas, combining indoor spaces with exteriors to achieve the #mediterraneanlifestyle that characterizes us.
Casa Plà del Mar is an example of a complete refurbishment and extension of a second-hand house, whose antiquated aesthetics and unfavorable distribution made it worthy project. Its privileged location in the district of Plà del Mar in Moraira town and a few steps away from the town centre, made the clients fall in love with this property. It also enjoys privileged views of the Mediterranean Sea and the Peñón de Ifach. We designed a modern style house with indoor and outdoor spaces connected, shaded areas thanks to a large overhang and big open areas to enjoy sunny days throughout the year. An infinity pool culminates a Mediterranean project.
For these types of projects including refurbishment and extension, it is necessary to ask for a building license. For this you will need a complete project designed, calculated and prepared by an architect, according to the local norms of the different town halls of Costa Blanca: Moraira, Teulada, Benissa, Benitachell, Jávea, Denia and Altea. We are happy to help you with your architectural projects and give you the best advice.
