APARTMENT sales are soaring across Spain but rural holiday homes remain empty and unwanted.
In the past 12 months, 80% of all properties sold in Spain were flats and apartments, up 28% on the previous year.
This has led leading property developer Taylor Wimpey to declare ‘The rural holiday villa’s days are numbered’.
“Buyers are much more discerning than they used to be when it comes to property type and location,” said Marc Pritchard, Sales & Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey España.
“Remote, isolated villas are falling out of favour as second homeowners’ demands have changed.”
