If the latest data for international tourist arrivals to Spain is anything to go by, then the land of sun, sea and sangria is set for a sizzling summer!

Tourist arrivals to Spain rose 16% year-on-year to just over 7 million in April 2017 with holidaymakers from the UK totaling 1.523 million, up 7% from the previous year.

The Balearic Islands (comprising Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera) saw UK tourist arrivals rise by 9.3% in April with the Valencian Community, home of the hugely popular Costa Blanca region, welcoming 14% more Brits in the first four months of 2017 according to the Spanish tourism authority, Frontur.

For those who’ll fall in love with Spain this summer and don’t want the holiday to end, leading housebuilder (operating across Spain since 1958), Taylor Wimpey Espana, has compiled 5 top tips for viewing a holiday home whilst on vacation:

1.       Choose the area you want to buy in – Before you view any properties, make sure to select the right location that fits all your holiday home needs perfectly. You might love where your hotel is located for two weeks of the year but would it be right for longer-term living? What everyday amenities are nearby? How easy it is to reach the airport? What will it be like out of season?

2.       Consider your property type wisely – Fancy a house close to the beach? Spacious apartment or prestigious townhouse? Consider what you want from your holiday home in Spain? How many people will be using it and how often? How much maintenance might it require? How much outside space does it offer and what about on-site facilities such as a swimming pool or children’s play area? What about parking?

Happily, Taylor Wimpey España has something for everyone. Try Bahia Sant Pere on the stunning island of Mallorca for penthouse living with uninterrupted sea views. Want ace golf courses within walking distance of your home? Then head to Malaga on the Costa del Sol and Horizon Golf  which features courts and training programmers for golf lovers.

3.       Book viewing appointment as early as possible – To avoid disappointment during the peak season, arrange in advance to view properties you are interested in. Taylor Wimpey España’s friendly team are on hand to meet with you for no-obligation personal viewings at a time which suits you – and your sunbathing schedule!


4.       Prepare your questions – You wouldn’t buy a house in the UK without asking questions so why would you do so in Spain? No questions is too big or too small for the Taylor Wimpey España team so prepare a list of queries about the property, the area, the company and the buying process and ask away!

5.       Learn the lingo Whilst English is widely spoken across Spain and indeed by all members of the Taylor Wimpey España team, it’s always a valued gesture to learn the basics of Spanish to help integration. Even a few words such as “hola (hello), adiós (goodbye), buenos días (good morning), hoy (today) mañana (tomorrow), por favor (please) and gracias (thank you)” will go a long way.

For those more advanced, then some useful property related vocab might include comprar (to buy), viviendas (properties), número habitaciones (number of rooms) and viviendas de vacaciones (holiday homes).

In demand home markets in Spain such as Barcelona and the Balearic Islands are seeing rents rise as the rental sector recovers well, the latest data suggests.

Overall rental asking prices increased by 8.8% on average over three months to the end of March, according to the figures from property portal Idealista, reaching €9 per square meter per month.

Rents increased the most in the Balearics with a rise of 16%, followed by Madrid up 5.1%, the Canaries up and Catalonia up 4.9%.

Rents are highest in Barcelona at €18 per square meter per month, followed by Madrid at €15 while at the other end of the scale asking rents are just €4 per square meter in cities such as Lugo, Avila and Teruel.

Meanwhile, the latest figure from Fotocasa show rents were up by 1.3% month on month in May to €8 per square meter per month and are 10.5% higher than a year ago.

According to Mark Stucklin of Spanish Property Insight more people in Spain are renting. ‘Spain still has some of the highest owner-occupier rates in Europe, partly because Spaniards have tended to see paying rent as throwing away money. But the property crash, and credit crunch that came with it, compounded by high and regressive transaction costs, have forced more Spaniards than ever into the rental market, especially the young,’ he said.

He believes that the growth in rents will attract more local and foreign investors who can’t earn a decent yield on any mainstream assets and that although rental yields are not dazzling at around 3% to 4% gross in a city like Barcelona, they are significantly better than alternatives like Government bonds, and look less risky.

‘I expect small investors to continue opting for Spanish property for the foreseeable future,’ he added.

Prices are also being affected by foreign interest as they are rising fastest in coastal areas where second homes are popular. The most up to data figures from appraisal company Tinsa shows that prices on the coast are rising fastest in Gavá, just south of Barcelona, and Mojácar in Andalusia.

The data also shows that other areas with a strong holiday home market, including the Canary Islands, Mallorca, Ibiza, the Costa Dorada, the South Costa Blanca, the West Costa del Sol and the Costa de la Luz, are seeing growth.

Qui n’a pas rêvé un jour de posséder une maison à l’étranger pour y passer ses vacances ? Si beaucoup y pensent, peu passent à l’acte. Toutefois, depuis que l’immobilier espagnol relève la tête, les pays francophones se ruent sur les résidences secondaires en Espagne. 

Soleil tapant permanent, plages, mers chaudes et cultures semblables … les francophones en Europe raffolent de l’Espagne. L’arrivée en masse des touristes en Espagne a d’ailleurs augmenté de 16% en avril dernier.

Les Français ont été 1.13 millions à s’y rendent, soit 4.8% de plus par rapport à l’année dernière. Quant aux Suisses, ils étaient 219 milles, soit 43% de plus par rapport à l’année dernière !

Les Francophones reviennent souvent dans la péninsule ibérique avec l’envie d’y acheter une résidence secondaire. En effet, les prix de la pierre sur le sol espagnol séduit de plus en plus hors des frontières et convainquent les acquéreurs francophones.

Selon les chiffres officiels du bureau d’enregistrement espagnol, pas moins de 3.423 Belges ont acquis une maison de vacances en Espagne l’an dernier. C’est à peine moins que les Français (4.321).

D’après Taylor Wimpey España,  premier promoteur immobilier en Espagne, Costa Blanca et Costa del Sol cartonnent pour ces acquéreurs.

« L’an dernier, le nombre d’investisseurs Belges en particulier qui ont acheté une résidence secondaire en Espagne avait augmenté de 43%. Les Belges sont friands de la Costa Blanca parce que la région offre des opportunités incroyables pour passer des vacances agréables. De plus en plus de Français s’intéressent à la zone. L’amour des francophones pour la pierre espagnole est loin d’avoir faiblit. »

Marc Pritchard, Directeur Marketing de Taylor Wimpey España
