Property prices up by 1.1% during February

Image
Residential property prices in #Spain registered an increase of 1.1% during the month of February, with average "asking" prices (throughout Spain) at 1,744 Euros per square meter, based on information from the property portal idealista, and those prices are up by 8.1% when compared with February 2018.
Madrid is the region with the highest price per square meter at 3,099 Euros and for comparison purposes. Toledo has the cheapest at 786 Euros per square meter.

Asking prices in the Alicante region vary wildly from north to south, coastal and interior. The average asking price in the region is 1,500 Euros per square meter (as at close of 2018) and also showing signs of increasing.

This bring us on to a two bedroom apartment we are currently offering for sale, located a couple of minutes (2-3) easy walk from the beach in Les Marines (Denia). This is an urgent sale, the price is 75,000 Euros (plus notary fees and taxes of approximately 12%), and the apartment measures 69 square m…

With more real estate agencies springing up, the most recent reports from the Company Registrar in #Spain (Anuario Mercantil del Colegio de Registradores) confirm that almost one in four new companies created in 2018 are involved in real estate / construction.

Therefore it's more important than ever that you the customer can be assured that you are dealing with an experienced agent, one that you can trust and that is be affiliated to recognised professional organisations. So as well as being members of the Association of International Property Professionals - AIPP, offering our clients protection through the fact that we have a professional indemnity insurance, I am delighted to announce that we have also been accepted into the Asociación Profesional de Expertos Inmobiliarios further boosting our reputation as professionals in this ever growing sector.

Denia Beach - Say "Hola" to a new life

Image
We recently visited a new development being built within meters of the beach in Les Marines, Dénia, a stunning location alongside natural beaches.



The development is made up of 79 apartments with a choice of one, two and three bedrooms, in an urbanization with a communal swimming pool and gardens, and access points to the sandy beach. 



With terraces that offer views towards the sea, the Montgo and of course overlooking the communal gardens and pool, the apartments feature floor to ceiling windows to maximize the natural light. The open kitchen with breakfast bar comes furnished and fully equipped with oven, electric hob and extractor fan. The bathrooms are equipped with natural rain-effect shower and stone shower tray with integrated shower screen, plus washbasin furniture, mirror and halogen lights. The apartment will have armored door and windows with double glazing for a perfect isolation of noise and temperature, in addition to installation of air conditioning and built-in wardrobes…

Altea, out of season

Image
It's mid January, a little overcast, it might rain, but then again, it probably won't. With the arrival of the cooler weather, a visit to the beach might not feature in everyone's plans, but it should.

Altea is a small white fishing village located in between the bigger and better known Benidorm and Calpe. (It also happens to be the place I call home)! And it is one of the many destinations that receives visitors throughout the year. Known for its legendary old town and its white houses, visiting this captivating municipality in the low season can be the perfect winter getaway. The tranquility that is experienced during these months and the drop in prices outside the summer period, makes it a suitable for all tastes. Stroll along the sea as if the summer had not come to an end, eat tasty rice or end the day with a delicious ice cream.

A Happy New Year to you all!

2018 has been another strong year for property sales in Spain and prices are up across the board. Although the Brexit issue has made some British buyers a little nervous we have seen an increase in buyers from other markets, namely Ireland, Scandinavia, the Benelux countries and even Canada. Most noticeable is that Spanish buyers in 2018 have been our largest market.

Tourist numbers to Spain have continued to beat all records during the last 12 months, so now is as good a time as any to pay us a visit. You never know, you might even find a property.

Here are a few of our favourite properties, some new listings and those which are attracting a lot of enquiries on property portals of late - we would love to hear from you so contact us by email or telephone on +34 966 112 773 and let us know what you think.
