More than most, the Costa Del Sol property market is as much about lifestyle as it is about the homes themselves. This region and its different residential zones offer a great many lifestyle options, from beach, sport and nightlife glamour to culture, nature and a cosmopolitan social scene. Popular locations include Marbella, Guadalmina, Estepona, Casares and Sotogrande. Choosing the right home in the right area helps to realise your lifestyle ambitions and enjoy a unique way of life to the full.
The Costa del Sol has a very well organised infrastructure with the Autopista del Sol providing quick access from Malaga to Estepona, Sotogrande and beyond to Gibraltar.
We know only too well how difficult it can be to find the Spanish property of your dreams. It can take hours of searching various websites, but unless you know the areas and all the builders and developers. it is highly likely that you will only be scratching the surface of all the properties that are actually available and therefore severally restricting your options and opportunities. How can you be sure that you are only dealing with the best and most reputable builders and developers and that you are achieving the best prices?
One of the most common problems we keep hearing about is of individuals having to make several trips to Spain at great expense, having to deal with numerous different companies and brokers to view a range of different properties and then still not finding the right property or worse still, they are unsure of who they are actually dealing with.
Spain launched its golden visa programme in 2013. An investment of €500,000 in real estate will gain family residency. The Spanish investor visa can be renewed every two years. After five years it is possible to gain permanent residency and after ten years citizenship. It is not necessary to live in Spain in order to retain and renew the residency visa permit.
