How to Own Your Dream Home in Spain
by Rhiannon Williamson
Every year hundreds of thousands of foreign visitors travel
to Spain to delight in the fantastic weather, stunning natural
landscapes, excellent entertainment options and superb Mediterranean
beaches. Many of these people dream of one day owning their own
property in Spain, in fact Spain is now one of the most desirable
second home and retirement destinations in the world.
In the 1960s Spain underwent something of a building boom
and earned itself a reputation for building unsympathetically
for the natural environment. Since then massive effort has been
placed in redressing the balance, fixing the architectural problems
and recreating the face of Spain particularly along the coastal
regions known as the Costas.
The most famous Costa is the Costa del Sol and one of the
most beautiful towns in this region is Benalmadena. This town
is as famous for its stunning natural beauty as it is for the
wealth of amenities and opportunities it offers both residents
and visitors. It is also an excellent example of how Spanish
property developers and town planners have saved Spain from architectural
The town of Benalmadena on the Costa del Sol is home to some
incredible and luxury properties that boast everything from swimming
pools and tennis courts, to direct golf course access and access
to the water parks and theme parks of Benalmadena.
The town is one of the most desirable on the Costa del Sol,
the Costa del Sol is the most desirable area of Spain for property,
therefore anyone who purchases a home in the town will be purchasing
themselves a fantastic investment opportunity as well as a dream
home in Spain.
Because of the strength, stability and security of the Spanish
property market it is a relatively straight forward process to
raise a mortgage or finance to afford to purchase a home in Spain.
Obviously terms and conditions will depend on a purchaser's individual
financial circumstances, but some international mortgage lenders
are prepared to consider future rental income from the letting
of a property as income on which they can base the amount they
will lend you.
If you dream of owning a dream home in Spain you could consider
buying now, letting the property for part of the year to cover
your mortgage commitments and benefiting in person for the weeks
of the year when you usually holiday abroad.
If you were to purchase property in Benalmadena on the Costa
del Sol for example, you would be buying into one of the most
desirable areas of Spain for holiday lets and purchasing yourself
possibly one of the best returning investment vehicles in property
On the one hand the area benefits from a wealth of golf courses,
entertainment parks, perfect beaches and direct access to Malaga
airport for international accessibility making it simple to rent
your property for top dollar weekly returns all year. On the
other hand the area's attraction means properties available will
become scarcer and as demand surges and supply diminishes the
value of your property will soar!
A true win win situation!
