HOUSES in a new €130 million property development are giving the British market a swerve due to uncertainty over Brexit, it has emerged.
Instead, Dutch and Belgian buyers are the target market of ‘The View Marbella’, which has begun construction near Benahavis.
“These nationalities represent our main clients in recent years,” said Simon Boxus, sales director of The View.
“Previously, the market was controlled by the British public, but since the announcement of Brexit these two countries have climbed positions to top the majority of listings in the real estate market.”
After Belgium and the Netherlands, Scandinavians are next in terms of demand, while the British are further down the pecking order.
Foundations are currently being laid for the luxury resort of 49 spacious apartments off the Ronda Road.
So far 40% of the plush pads, priced between €600,000 and €2.5 million, have been reserved.
And there is much to miss out on for unlucky Brits, as The View sports a concierge service, offering everything from grocery shopping to providing homes with a private chef.
It also boasts terraces with Mediterranean views, luscious gardens and a 24-hour security team.
The complex, spread across seven two and three-floor buildings, is expected to be completed by 2021, generating 250 jobs.
Wilma Sierra Blanca are the real estate firm behind the build, while Wilma Europe Holding will market the properties.
