The best places to buy property on the Costa del Sol

Spain has seen people buying property on the Costa del Sol rise and fall dramatically over the past 15 years.

The property boom between 1998 and 2008 was replaced with a sharp downturn in Spain´s economy. Bank repossessions and over development caused supply to outstrip demand.

Buying property on the Costa del Sol

So what is behind the recent resurgence in property sales on Spain´s Sunny Coast?

Mark Rode, owner of Rode Estates Properties, Marbella says: “We are selling more properties now than we have in the past 18 months. If properties are reasonably priced, they sell. Investors can benefit from prices being reduced by up to 40% over the past 5 years.

“UK buyers are taking advantage of the excellent exchange rate between sterling and euro”.

“Spain has a fantastic climate, beaches and award-winning attractions. As such buying a property on the Costa del Sol today is now a better proposition than ever.”
