THE property market in Andalucia is hotting up in tune with the weather.
And as the parasols go up and the sunscreen gets slapped on, property prices are slowly beginning to climb again.
But, luckily in certain pockets of the coast, in particular in our areas of Manilva and Casares, there are still some incredible bargains to be had.
You will certainly find significantly better value for money here than in Marbella – with some properties costing less than half what they would in Marbella.
Most clients buying in Manilva are not just buying for investment, but for the fantastic lifestyle here, for personal use and as a holiday home and future retirement property.
There is a great combination of the familiarity of a strong expat population alongside the real essence of the real Spain.
Wherever you are around here, from Duquesa marina to inland Casares, or from La Paloma beach to Manilva village there is plenty of space.
What’s more the beaches do not get busy and there are some great areas to be discovered and explored such as the Castillo and inland at the Roman Oasis, not to mention the stunning white village of Casares.
The market won’t stop for Brexit – but the Brits have taken a pause
THERE are lots of people on the hunt for their dream home but British buyers are taking a little pause, with the Brexit referendum looming.
They are still looking and they are still putting down small deposits, but most are waiting for June 23 to make a final decision.
Either way, Spain will still be Spain after the Brexit vote and there are still plenty of buyers from all over the world happy to spend money here regardless.
My worry is that the British people will miss out and once they’re ready to commit, many of the best deals will be gone. Many Europeans are already buying in force.
The good properties are not waiting for the British to buy them.
People from all over Europe are coming up with money, especially from Belgium, France, Germany, Austria, Norway, Sweden, Ireland and Hungary.
It seems that for businesses Britain is better in Europe – we will certainly be voting to remain in the EU on June 23.
