1. How is Arona Homes different to other estate agents?
Arona Homes is an innovative, forward thinking local estate agency – the very first of its kind in the Costa Blanca area. We differ to more traditional estate agents. Instead, we work on an innovative cloud-based platform, using the very latest technology and estate agency software that is developed especially for Arona Homes.
By having fewer overheads, we can afford to offer the lowest rates in the area. We operate on a transparent and contracted fee structure meaning our clients won’t get any surprises or misunderstandings at the final signing.
2. Are we very close to you?
YES! We know most homebuyers are now searching online for their next property – using portals or search websites, in fact 9 out of 10 homes are bought this way. Apart from the operation of a store, it seemed useless to establish and try to compete as a traditional real estate agent when most people prefer to search online. Having commercial space in the center of the old town of Calpe and many commercials in the Costa Blanca area, simply means that we can transmit our savings directly back to the client offering the best rates.
3. How much money can Arona Homes save me?
In terms of savings, we expect the buyer of an averaged priced house / apartment in Costa Blanca to save up to 10.000 euro. In fact, our property prices are lower compared to the other estate agents.
As for the seller’s viewpoint, thanks to our strategy we can sell the properties in a short amount of time.
4. How is Arona Homes different compared to an online estate agent?
Online agencies require you to do all the hard work, whereas Arona Homes does everything for you. We are a local (Moraira, Calpe, Benidorm, Alicante and even Moscow) based independent estate agent that provides a professional and a personal service. We offer everything you would expect from a traditional estate agent with even more marketing knowhow. We use real estate software and since we are a local agency, we visit you in our own comfort zone when you need us.
