Some Reasons To Buy Property In Spain

It might have been sunshine and sea that brought early home owners and holiday makers to Spain, but it is the increasingly sophisticated facilities on offer that have kept them coming back. Lush golf courses, marinas, red clay tennis courts, polo fields and challenging cycle routes make the country a spectacular sporting arena.
 
Also notable is an increasing demand for cities and the culture they offer. Today, buyers are equally as likely to want a view of Palma’s cathedral as a Mallorquin beach, with Barcelona, Madrid, Ibiza Town and Marbella appearing more frequently in buyers’ plans.

A good boost for the property market

Throughout Spain, excellent healthcare and a choice of international schools are attracting young families as well as the more traditional retiree market. The country continues to invest in a good motorway system and the third largest high-speed rail network in the world (after China and Japan), while its modern and monumental international airports provide connections worldwide.
 
Spain is Western Europe’s second largest country with 3,000 miles of coastline, land borders with Portugal and France, and much-loved islands in the Mediterranean and the Atlantic. It is the third most visited country in the world, welcoming a record 64.9 million arrivals in 2014 – and these visitors have money: the UNWTO (United Nation World Tourism Organisation)[1] reports that tourists spent more money in Spain last year than in any other European country.
 
After the deep recession, property buyers are back in Spain in substantial numbers, taking advantage of the excellent value at present. The property market had a further boost with the government’s Golden Visa programme. This offers residency to non-EU residents investing €500,000 or more in Spanish property and has brought many new wealthy buyers. With tourism figures rising and property enquiries on a steep upward path, Spain is back with a flourish in 2015.
 

 
 
Spanish Property

A country as large as Spain offers a big selection of property and areas to live in. Newer homes include seaside apartments and homes on gated golf resorts, but older properties, and especially rural ones, have been attracting buyers eager to connect with an authentic Spanish country lifestyle.
