Marbella is still a property hotspot

Brexit may have been dominating the British media since 2016, but regardless of its uncertainties, British buyers are still flocking to Spain, and their primary destination is the Costa del Sol.

In 2018, some 30% of the properties bought on the Costa del Sol were sold to overseas buyers, and 16% of those buyers were British. This is encouraging news, particularly as there were few new homes built on the coast in the years following the global financial crisis. But now the British are flocking back to their favourite hotspot in the sun.

According to statistics from the Spanish National Institute, a total of 78,000 new dwellings were granted permits across Spain in 2018, an increase of 23.1% on 2017, and new builds made up 17% of total property sales. Furthermore, on the Costa del Sol there are over 200 new construction projects ongoing at the moment, and they cater for a variety of budgets.

Marbella remains a popular hotspot for buyers and there are some excellent new developments, such as this new build apartment in Benahavís. These fabulous off plan luxury two, three and four bedroom apartments are located between La Quinta and the exclusive La Zagaleta, just a few minutes drive from all of the amenities that Nueva Andalucía has to offer, prominent among which are its excellent golf courses.

We also have a number of stunning villas in our portfolio. For example, this turn key project in East Marbella consists of 35 off plan luxury contemporary three, four and five-bedroom villas, which are now completed. These beautifully designed villas offer modern family living with large open plan areas and an abundance of light and space. All the villas have private pools, 24-hour security and access to a private clubhouse and spa with jacuzzi, sauna, gymnasium and lounge area.

These are just two examples of the new build properties available in the Marbella area right now. Please contact us for more information about them, or to see the other properties we have to offer you.
