Hi every one
My wife and I are hoping to move to Spain next year and we like the sound of Quesada/ Murcia area Can anyone tell me anything about the area regarding flooding, renting availability? is it an expensive area? and so on. If any one can throw some light on it I would greatly appreciate it
Kind regards Dave

Hi, glad you found your way into the Spain section. I think that you will find that rentals are good value in the Murcia area, hopefully you will gain good insights from members who live there.

The only problem is that Quesada is not in Murcia but in Alicante area. It is quite hilly but a good all year round area with lots to do. No flooding problems due to the hills. There are plenty of rentals for all types of properties. It comes under Rojales town hall. Hope this helps.

Are you thinking of buying or renting? I strongly advise renting first ... and I am sure many others will agree with me. Take it slowly, time passes quickly enough but there is no going back if a wrong decision is made

Hi,
You don't seem to have mentioned if this is retirement or if you will be seeking employment ?

When Dave introduced himself in the Welcome Inn he said that he was retired.

Hi Gill
This is just the sort of info I need and Quesada sounds a nice place. Thanks for your help.

Hi Lionda
I agree with you and yes we will be renting but from the info I am getting from the renting sites it seems that most properties are geared up for holiday rental so this is why it looks like I need to visit an area which sounds to be what we feel good and comfortable with. I don't think we will be buying unless we come across a really cheap place off the beaten track somewhere.
Thank you for your input its much appreciated
kind regards Dave

Quesada is a very nice well established urbanisation, although there are a few rough areas I would avoid. However, it is not off the beaten track and certianly not cheap to rent or buy.

There are many long term rentals available. I would suggest you contact one of the local EA.

Not too far off the beaten track, weight the situation up and remove the rose tinted specs tread carefully and listen to ALL advice
