  1. Just sold a house near Ronda for the same money it was 5 years ago. It’s not all doom and gloom, just a matter of location and quality. Something very few people here seem to understand!

  2. If the orgiginal purchase tax and lawyers fees are not included in that figure (which range roughly from 7-10% of the total purchase price) that means that you have made a loss. To break even you have to sell the house at a 10% profit or more. Funny how people keep misunderstanding that.
