Make sure you are where you want to be and check the build quality. 

“South facing is always great, sea views are a huge bonus, as well as proximity to the beach, these things will increase the valuation of the property further down the line”.

When buying here, get guided by professionals who know the area. 

There are many to choose from, but it’s important you make sure you choose honest and experienced agents.

Ben continues: “Look out for what is surrounding you, make sure you know what is going to be built in the area, ensure no apartment blocks get placed right in front of you, or anything that could block your view.”
