Summer sports, surfing, hiking, cycling, endless sight seeing, culture, traditions, customs, Mediterranean food, skiing and so on. You are already well aware that Spain offers everything that Northern Europeans expect from a holiday. So, naturally, it has always been the dream of many to relocate to Spain to make what they enjoy on holiday part of their lifestyle.
There is something special about Spain that other countries such as Italy and Portugal with fundamentally the same qualities just don't have. In fact, where once upon a time, Italy looked down on Spain as their poorer cousins, many Italians, an estimated three hundred thousand, have sought to improve their lifestyle by relocating there too. This would have been unheard of just a decade ago so there are some seriously strong pull factors.
The same pull factors that are enticing more and more people from increasingly diverse countries such as Russia, Iceland and dare I say even France. It is a combination of the country's "duende" and it's rapid progression that has turned it into the consistent top pick for foreign place to live. However, it wasn't entirely effortless as the country has worked hard to achieve its phenomenal progress during the past thirty years in order to make it what it is today.
The cities and the areas where foreigners like to buy have strong infrastructure. Like other countries such as the UK, the Spanish market will always be a safer long term bet as far as property is concerned. Thanks to the naturally stubborn nature of Spanish property owners, prices will never plummet to silly levels as they simply just won´t be bullied into budging.
Whereas five years ago most buyers were investors with profit and little more in mind, today's buyers are not coming to Spain with the intention to speculate. On the contrary, the current wave of buyers are focused solely on lifestyle and it looks set to stay this way at least within the near future. With all the modern, purpose built construction that has gone on over the past five to ten years, buyers with all budgets are spoilt with an overwhelming choice.
From gated urbanisations with manicured lawns to apartments in the centre of town, it is just a case of knowing what suits your needs. Once you have an idea of location, there is such a variety of architectural designs that anyone can find a home to suit their priorities. The buying procedure is logical and straightforward and an established agent will have the necessary knowledge and experience in order to assist you.
There has never been a better time to buy in Spain than right now so those that do seize the opportunity are wise.
