Mobile Homes for sale in Spain including residential park homes and second hand mobile homes for sale throughout Spain.

Welcome to our Mobile Homes for sale in Spain page. Buying mobile homes abroad can be a cheap and easy way to owning a property in Spain. There are many residential and holiday home parks throughout Spain that will allow you to site a mobile home.

However, the creation and building of new mobile home parks near to the beach is restricted and are few and far between. This has led to a number of inland parks being created.

We have access to two sites on the Costa del Sol, one in Alfarnatejo and one in El Torcal both of which are inland from Malaga some 45-60 minutes. See below for details. A third site will be launched shortly.

Advantages of Buying a Mobile Homes Abroad

Check out the advantages of buying a mobile home abroad and see if it fits into your personal criteria.

  • It can be as stylish as you want it to be. Just because it's a mobile home does not mean that it can’t be as classy
    and as beautiful as any other bricks-and-mortar home. First of all, you can purchase a mobile home with one
    or two storeys. Then, you can have it custom-made complete with
    cathedral ceilings, fireplaces and immaculate kitchens.
  • Location won't be a problem. As suggested by the word mobile, you can choose from the many different coastal
    and countryside locations wherein you can station your mobile home. You have the freedom to choose the area
    that could suit your requirements.
  • It is convenient and portable. You can move your home from one site to another. You can just move anytime
    without to much hassle.
  • You can earn extra money from it. Another good thing about a mobile home is that it is rentable. You can
    charge a certain fee for other people to use it when you're not resident.
  • You can bring it home with you. If, in case you decide that you do not wish to live abroad anymore and you
    want to go back to your homeland, you can just take the mobile home with you.
  • It boasts a built-in temperature-controlled environment. Mobile homes are of a higher calibre than traditional
    homes because there is very little chance that they will be exposed to dampness and moisture. Weather won't
    affect the building process, nor will it damage them. This will save your pocket from spending for expensive
    repairs.
  • You can choose the features you like. There is an array of styles and designs to choose from as you decide on
    the look and model of your mobile home. In fact, you can get an entire set of appliances to be shipped along with
    your home if you wish.
  • The construction is definitely faster and less expensive. Let's take the case of a traditional home. If you would
    ever think of changing or adding something to the design of that home, the budget allowance would be high since
    you may require an architect, new floor plans, and permits.
    On the other hand, construction of a mobile home is three times faster and it won't cost you that much.

However, while there may be advantages, there are also disadvantages of buying a mobile home abroad.

Disadvantages of Buying a Mobile Homes Abroad

Buying a mobile home abroad is not for everyone so be sure to check out any disadvantages below to ensure that you are making the right decision.

  • For one, if you own the land on which you plan to place your manufactured home on a foundation, it will be
    treated like a site-built home. Therefore, you can take advantage of all the tax benefits and appreciation.
    However, if you were to place it on a mobile home park where you simply
    rent the lot, you will not get all the tax benefits meant for real estates and the value of your home
    depreciates as time passes.
  • Secondly and based on recent statistics, more than a third of mobile home buyers report plumbing and electrical
    problems. Obviously, these are also the same problems encountered by traditional home owners. Hence,
    one can safely say that these so-called disadvantages are
    common ones.

Given all these options, buying a mobile home abroad may be quite a challenge. However, it's a challenge that can be fulfilling, especially if you choose the best mobile home that could address your needs. You can start choosing your mobile home by browsing through our listings here or by visiting our other website for details on mobile homes for sale abroad.

While brand new mobile homes are the better option, don't think that you can't jazz up a second hand or second hand mobile homes. Just add a dash of your creativity and taste and you're all set to driving into the sunset with your unique mobile home abroad.
