Top Tips for Buying a Place in Javea

Long gone are the days when owning a place in the sun is only a possibility for multimillionaires and Eastenders TV stars; nowadays it’s a much easier and a lot cheaper to buy yourself a pad in the sun that would make Mick Jagger feel at home.

It is true that to a limited extent this sort of home remains something of a luxury, and really it always will remain so, but these days having a home in a sunny location is no longer something that only the very affluent can afford. With the opening up of the European Community, the comparative high worth of the domestic home market even in today’s days of austerity, and the birth of the internet to make it all much easier, finding yourself a property in the sun has never been easier.

The opening up of the international house market has made pockets for property development all over Europe, turning isolated, rural and out of the way little villages into areas of expansive property development. A prime example of this is Javea. Also known as Xabia, Javea is a lovely little place on the coast of the Costa Blanca, not far from the famous city of Valencia on Spain’s Eastern coast.

This world-famous party town is only 90 kilometers away, can be traveled to by boat, and you can even see it on a cloudless day from the beaches of Valencia. This nearness to Ibiza shows that this place can truly offer something for a huge range of prospective purchasers- the calm market charm of Javea, the silent beauty of the “older” half of Ibiza, and the notorious parties of Ibiza’s fabled club scene.
