Is it the time to buy a property in Spain? Choices to be made as the property market starts to warm up

Expat inquiries are on the Up in Sotogrande Spain As the Spanish property market starts to turn its no wonder interest in buying a property on the Sotogrande private residential estate is rapidly improving. Yet the prices remain a lot lower than they were in 2007 but for how long? Maybe now is the right time for that investment abroad Sotogrande in Southern Spain is one of the largest private residential estates in Europe with its own port, Marina developments surrounded by beach, forest, and mountains and bisected by the Guadiaro River. In essence the ideal location for a wonderful full time family lifestyle or alternatively a great safe holiday home location where you can enjoy fishing,golf,tennis,sailing,riding,polo and cycling to name but a few. The development is gated with security cameras in and out whilst Securitas continually patrol the estate and man gates 24 hours a day and are always a phone call away. One of the reasons that people love Sotogrande is the fact that it has a strong community bonded by a wonderful outdoor lifestyle. Many families have children attending the Sotogrande international school which is attended by over 650 children ages between 3years to 18 years studying on the ever popular International Baccalaureate curriculum. Whilst there are many that live in Sotogrande full time there are also many seasonal regulars. People myself included look forward to holiday periods when my circle of friends doubles with families coming and staying for Easter or the whole of the summer. For many of these seasonal regulars you often see fathers commuting during the holidays knowing the family are happy staying in this safe environment. In the last 18 months the Swedish, Danish, Belgium's, & French have been prevalent in looking for bargains and now with the UK property market taking off we are seeing an increase in British buyers. The choice of property can only be described as diverse and for this reason I say that Sotogrande caters for everyone. So if you are looking for a home on the water with boat moored outside, an apartment overlooking a championship golf course, a mountainside home with ocean views or maybe a riverside property or even an apartment on an island then Sotogrande has the choice. This grand upmarket estate boasts multi-million pound luxury villas upto 15 million euros, waterside apartments from 250.000,00 euros and an alfresco lifestyle and climate second to none. So here are some examples of good value buys currently on offer in our area. Here is a detached villa in a complex within the larger complex located on one of the Coasts most exclusive upmarket golf courses with stunning views. This property was originally sold 8 years ago costing the current owner over 1.3 million euros and can now be yours for cerca 550.000,00 euros
The golf club house as well as riding stables and kids adventure park are all within a minutes walk. Maybe you are looking to retire here and cannot find quite what you want. Then consider buying this plot of land again frontline golf with views towards the sea. Maybe we can rent you a long term villa whilst the build is in progress. This land was bought for cerca 1.1 million euros and you can now buy it for 400.000,00 euros. A very good price for just over an acre of land.

waterside apartments in the marina where apartments are for sale with berths on the doorstep should you want to rent or buy a berth. Here is a link to a berth for sale near the beach. If the sea isnt for you maybe a home at one of the highest points on Sotogrande. Apartments overlooking a beautiful lake and the golf course countryside beyond
As an agent formerly selling property on Sandbanks in Dorset I have seen recessions and lived through the recovery. Just like Sandbanks these wealth locations are the place to buy when the recovery starts. Get in at the right time and you maybe buying into a home whose value in a few years time will once again go beyond your reach.

  1. You can't be a mobile home park owner and not realize that the good old days are over in filling up vacant mobile home park lots. Those of us who owned parks in the late 1990s became spoiled with how easy it was to fill up a mobile home park. malaga apartments for rent
