Recent statistics from online real estate portal Idealista highlighting that the coast around Alicante remains the region with the highest proportion of overseas buyers in the Spanish real estate market, further emphasising the demand for property along the Costa Blanca and Calpe.
Buying property in Spain
While the overall impact from the COVID-19 pandemic is yet to be determined, Spain is one of the most popular countries for real estate investment in Europe. It’s no surprise that Spain is the most popular European country of settlement among Brits with a survey from AnyMan listing Spain at the top of the International Dream Moves ranking. An estimated 310,000 British citizens are living in Spain among the 1.3 million Brits living in Europe. Numbers from the first half of 2020 showed that the percentage of real estate transactions on the part of foreigners at 17.3 per cent is in line with figures from recent years.
While compared to other European countries, prices are expected to fall on average; it’s a different story when we look only at the coast. Coastal property is in high demand from foreigners, with Idealista data showing that 19 per cent of browsers looking at these properties were foreigners compared to domestic ones (using IP address locations as their methodology). When it comes to the Costa Blanca, its appeal is not only in its beautiful, pristine beaches, fantastic year-round weather and advanced infrastructure ranging from golf courses, shopping centres, five-star resorts and sports facilities.
Another perk of buying a property in the Costa Blanca region is that the area has historically been the most popular place for investment with the country’s highest proportion of foreign national buyers, especially in towns like Calpe and Moraira. While people expect real estate prices across the country to decline, Idealista found that coastal regions have only seen an overall decrease of 0.4%. Despite the malaise across the overall market, average prices in the Costa Blanca were up by 0.9%, indicating more investor confidence in the property market, especially in the Costa Blanca region, and the likes of property in Calpe.
