I saw their ads. Your "capital appreciation" will turn to depreciation very soon. My wife invested in Crowdhouse, I believe it's an Albanian company. Crowdfunding sucks, she gets her 5% but her property loses value every month, out of all places to invest she chose Aargau. This is a bad, bad idea. You can't exit it also. No wonder - who will buy a share in a lousy property
This is like the fourth same feedback I get, interesting. I looked into investing on it too, but was scared about entering something I can not easily exit with a model that I didn't fully understand. I chose to put my money elsewhere, and now I am glad I did so.

Re: Buying property in Spain

Hi,

I actually have a friend, she is married with the owner of an real state company which finds and sells houses in Alicante, Spain. Main focus are on vacation houses, big houses I would say, but probably can help you to find something within your range.

Best Regards

Buy a yacht or even better 50-foot catamaran - you can live in , you can move it you can sell it (at loss) but hey - you can't buy view of the sunset at the sea and feeling of the freedom that ...by all means you won't have with any of the real-estate - while your only hope being is to make some profits - with boat/yacht/multihul - it's clear from the beginning it's just expensive hole in the water

I would definitely visit the site without the estate agent and look around all the side streets to get a feel of what the area is like. I did this with my place. I arrived a day before I had my appointment with the estate agent and looked around and even chatted with some neighbours.

I think with the photos on the site you should be able to identify the location pretty well using Google satellite view and street view.

I don't know anything about a sex club in that location but I think Spain is quite similar to Switzerland in that you find them in all sorts of places and that they are not necessarily an indicator of an area being seedy. Until not very long ago there was one directly opposite the Postiguet and nobody seemed to be bothered by it. But again, best thing is to walk around and see for yourself.

I don't know Bonalba well but have been through it a few times. When I have visitors who haven't been to the area before, one of my favourite trips is doing the Candelobre caves and then going for tapas or a meal in Busot afterwards. One of the two roads back to El Campello goes through Bonalba. But that's just about where my knowledge of it finishes.
We are flying out to Alicante on Thursday returning on Whitsun Monday. We will definitely be checking the area out
