Now you know your budget; deciding what you want from a property will significantly help in focusing your search.

Firstly, we would recommend thinking about the area you would like to live in. Here’s a rundown of the most popular areas:

Then think about the principal uses of the property. For example, if it is intended for retirement, you may want to be close to local transport and amenities. Alternatively, if it’s used as a holiday home or rental property, you may want a private pool.

Other key considerations should include type of property for sale e.g. villa, apartment or bungalow, the number of bedrooms, proximity to the beach & local amenities and whether you’d like a new build property or resale.
