OWNER’S STATEMENT – 1st November 2018
Prior to July 2018 we did not operate Cortijo Fuente Arriba as a pure commercial enterprise. We were fortunate not to be encumbered by a mortgage and are non resident and shared our time in Spain, on a 50/50 basis, with our permanent home in Wales
This July we employed a husband/wife management team and we concentrated on creating new rental platforms such as Booking.com, AirBnB, HomeAway, Trip Advisor and Clickstay. This summer our turnover for the 3 months of July, August and September increased to €12,387.52 and at 1st November 2018 we have over €6000 worth of self guided walking and long term bookings for the autumn, winter and spring. The €6000 of bookings is just 10% of the total occupancy potential for the 9 months from October to May and demonstrates a year round rental income
With this is mind we are prepared to offer private financing to a qualifying buyer with a minimum down payment of €200,000 and the balance paid over 10 years interest free as long as payments are kept up to date.
