Would you buy a Spanish holiday home without setting foot in it?

  • Spanish holiday home: Taylor Wimpey España offering live mobile show home visits
  • Tourism spending unlikely to hit pre-pandemic levels before 2024 (McKinsey)
  • Reputation and trust now more important than ever

Spanish holiday home: The global travel and tourism industry continues to feel the pressure of the COVID-19 pandemic. McKinsey projects that international tourist arrivals will drop by 60-80% this year, with tourism spending unlikely to return to pre-pandemic levels until 2024. So where does this leave those building second homes?

According to leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España, it’s a question of adapting to the new normal and connecting with holiday home buyers in new ways. The company now provides pre-bookable live visits of its show homes, with staff using mobile devices to give prospective buyers the tours that they can’t make in person.

Seeing photographs and videos of a holiday home online is not the same as visiting the property. Mobile tours aren’t quite the same either, but they are vastly closer to that in-person experience. They provide the buyer with the chance to view the property at their own pace and to ask questions of staff while they do.” 

Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España

Buying a second home without seeing it in person remains a bold move. This is where the developer’s reputation comes into its own. With over 60 years’ experience of building homes along the coast of mainland Spain, as well as Mallorca and Ibiza, Taylor Wimpey España has the kind of credibility that engenders the trust needed to buy a second home during the pandemic.

The company is also delivering just the kind of homes that pandemic era buyers are seeking. At Green Golf in Estepona (Malaga), for example, buyers can purchase spacious, light-filled homes surrounded by the gently undulating course at Estepona Golf. Fresh air and natural greenery abound, providing a serene escape from the pressures of modern life and an attractive location to socially distance or even lock down.

Available from €299,000 plus VAT, the frontline golf, southwest-facing townhouses include three bedrooms, three bathrooms and large terraces. The private gated community has communal gardens and pools, all integrated into the spectacular surrounding scenery – and just 3km from the nearest beach.

Taylor Wimpey España confirms increasing importance of outdoor space

Taylor Wimpey: outdoor space

Knight Frank’s Global Buyer Survey 2020 found that Spain was one of the top three locations for those considering a post-Covid-19 move overseas. Now, leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España has shed new light on the kinds of properties that new buyers are seeking.

Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España said: “Buyers are, understandably, looking for homes with gardens and with more outdoor space. The potential for another lockdown has made private outdoor space infinitely more desirable. What’s interesting is that buyers aren’t reining in their budgets in order to achieve this. In fact, there’s a huge degree of liquidity in the market, despite Covid’s impact on the global economy.”

Those with the means to buy a new home, it seems, are sparing no expense when it comes to getting the space they need, and that applies indoors as well as outdoors. The Taylor Wimpey España team reports that more indoor space is also being sought, with buyers wanting to ensure they can work from home in comfort.

In terms of property types, it is townhouses outside of cities that are attracting the most attention. Buyers are seeking out locations with open spaces and natural scenery, with golf properties being particularly prized.

The southwest-facing townhouses at Green Golf, at Estepona, Malaga, are precisely the kind of homes that meet post-Covid buyers’ needs. Available from €299,000 plus VAT, the homes are bright and spacious, inside and out.

The three bedrooms provide scope for one to be used as an office, while the large terraces would make another period of at-home confinement far more bearable. The private, gated community also has communal gardens and pools, with being on-site at Estepona Golf providing plenty of options when it comes to keeping fit and healthy.

Both those buying main residences and those buying holiday homes have re-evaluated what it is that they want from their property in Spain, just as families have around the world. In terms of second home buyers, Knight Frank reports that over 25% of those who contributed to its Global Buyer Survey are more likely to buy a second home as a result of the pandemic.

“Buyer requirements have experienced the biggest shakeup in years, which is pushing interest in larger properties with outdoor space up significantly. Back in 2006/07, we saw buyers’ budgets trimmed significantly and experienced a wave of cancellations as the financial crisis struck. What’s different this time around is that buyers are, on the whole, going ahead with their purchases, despite the economic backdrop. The importance of having the right property has never been greater.”

Five essential tips for selling the property to overseas buyers

Property overseas: Understand your buyers and localize your approach

It’s essential to understand your buyers, from the kind of properties that they’re looking for to the way they like to make decisions. Sales and Marketing Director at Spanish homebuilder Taylor Wimpey España, comments:

“It’s really important to understand both the similarities and the differences between buyers from different countries. Understanding what makes a certain group of buyers tick can help you to ensure that the properties you present to them are the ones that best meet their needs. German second home buyers, for example, tend to favour homes on Mallorca over those on the Spanish mainland, while Belgians prefer the Costa del Sol, and Russians often opt for the Costa Blanca.

“British buyers, on the other hand, are drawn towards multiple locations, buying in the Costa del Sol and Mallorca, as well as on the Costa Blanca. Building awareness of these kinds of preferences into your business planning process and marketing activities can help you to engage more effectively with overseas buyers.”

Research the countries you plan to sell to, not just the languages

People move overseas for all manner of reasons. As of 2020, there are 272 million international migrants, many of whom have purchased homes in the countries to which they’ve moved. Then there’s the vast international second home market.

If you plan to target a particular country with your properties, do your homework. Say you plan to use English to French translation services to target property buyers in France. That’s great, but have you also looked at how the French economy is performing, the country’s political situation, what reputation your country has in France, and whether your tourist board advertises there? The better informed you are, the more you will be able to predict your chances of success in a specific country.

Translate your spoken communications, as well as your written ones

Our final tip is to use interpretation services or multilingual customer support (or both) when selling the property to overseas buyers. For both sales and aftercare, multilingual services can make buyers feel comfortable and help you to boost your brand’s reputation. Providing translation services that span both written and verbal communications means that your buyers can communicate with you in whatever format they need, giving them the confidence to buy, no matter what their mother tongue may be.

LA CALA RANKED IN TOP 3 RESORTS IN SPAIN AND BEST 4-STAR RESORT

Golf World Top 100 listing also ranks La Cala’s America & Europa courses in Spain’s top 30.

La Cala Resert is the latest stage of a €120 million joint-venture between FBD and leading property developer Taylor Wimpey. More than 320 homes over six different developments have already been constructed as part of a plan to build 1,000 homes on the resort over the next decade.

Judges from the industry-leading Golf World Top 100 rankings have recognised La Cala as Spain’s leading 4* Resort and the country’s third best Resort overall. Two of La Cala’s three courses have also been ranked inside the country’s top 30.

A distinguished panel from the prestigious Golf World Top 100 list – one of the golf industry’s most authoritative and respected rankings – declared La Cala to be “an outstanding resort… getting better all the time.”

La Cala’s iconic America course was ranked as the 25 th best course in Spain. The ‘stellar back nine’ on Europa was praised as judges placed it in 30 th position. Asia was ranked 62 nd and described as ‘better than ever.’

La Cala Resort General Manager, Sean Corte-Real, said: “It’s an incredible honour to receive such critical acclaim. This latest ranking places La Cala in the top echelon of European golf destinations and is testament to the hard work of everyone behind the scenes.

“While the feedback from visitors and judges alike keeps getting better, we’re determined to cement La Cala’s position as a must play destination for golfers across Europe while remaining as accessible as ever. Our commitment to improve customer experience is our main focus and is continuous.”

The latest recognition caps a critically-acclaimed year for Spain’s largest golf resort. In January La Cala was named the Best 4* Golf Resort in Spain at the 2019 International Travel Awards and Best 4* Hotel in both Spain and Europe at the 2019 International Hotel Awards.

In March, La Cala Resort was ranked in the top-three of golf destinations worldwide by independent course-review website, Golfshake. Compared against more than 15,000 reviews submitted by real-world golfers in 2019, La Cala achieved one of the highest ratings on record, placing it at the top of the rankings for courses outside of the UK.

And last month La Cala was also recognised as a 2020 Travellers’ Choice award winner by TripAdvisor. Based on a full year of visitor reviews, the award recognises outstanding traveller feedback, placing the resort in the top 10% of hospitality businesses around the globe.

Increasing Numbers Of Brits Seek Sun-Kissed Spanish holiday Homes

  • British and Spanish website visitors leading interest in holiday homes
  • Leads up 55% across May to August, compared with 2019
  • Digital viewings and video tours helping to fuel demand

Spanish holiday homes builder, Taylor Wimpey España, has reported significant growth in the number of enquiries it’s receiving for its properties on mainland Spain, Mallorca and Ibiza. Leads were up by 21% in the year to date for August 2020 versus August 2019, while the May to August 2020 period saw a leap of 55% compared to the same months the year before.

When it comes to web visitors, it is British and Spanish interest that is growing most rapidly. According to the Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España: “We’re seeing a notable increase in demand for second homes in Spain. Uncertainty and quarantine restrictions are doing nothing to curb Britons’ interest in owning a sun-kissed Spanish retreat. Indeed, the pandemic has caused many people to think long and hard about what’s important to them and where they want to spend their time.”

Digital Viewings

In response to the surge in demands, Taylor Wimpey España is offering digital viewings and newly released video tours of its second homes. At Green Golf in Estepona (Malaga), for example, buyers can now explore the bright, spacious frontline golf properties via an online drone tour, while listening to Taylor Wimpey España share details of the development over the phone. The digital tour of the three-bedroom/three-bathroom townhouses, which are available now from €299,000 plus VAT, allows buyers to see everything from the on-site pool and golf course views to the beautifully presented show home.

The increasing interest includes the Spanish mainland and some of the Balearic Islands
While the tourism industry in Spain, along with that of most of the rest of the world, has been hit hard by the global health crisis, British families are clearly not giving up on their dreams of owning property there. “The impressive rise in interest is a good indication of what’s to come, post-pandemic. As such, we are not only launching new developments – such as the lovely Harmony apartments, penthouses and duplexes at La Cala Golf – but also searching for new sites along the Costa del Sol and Costa Blanca, as well as in Mallorca and Ibiza, said Pritchard.”

Until travel restrictions are lifted, the Taylor Wimpey España team will continue to deliver digital viewings to the growing number of Britons who are requesting them.

Buyers still keen to have a home in sunny Spain: Yorkshire

Buyers still keen to have a home in sunny Spain:

Insider’s guide to buying property in Yorkshire’s favourite place in the sun

With regular flights between Spain and Leeds Bradford and Doncaster Sheffield airports, those in search of sun and siestas have made it the number one place for Yorkshire people to buy a holiday home abroad.

While the pandemic and Foreign Office advice against all non-essential travel has affected the property market in Spain, it has not deterred the most determined home hunters from pursuing their dream.

Brexit has muddied the water over the length of time you can stay in a holiday home but as Spain is heavily dependent on foreign visitors, those with properties there are not too concerned. While nothing has been formally agreed between the UK and EU, it seems likely that short stays will not be affected and it has been mooted that a simple entry visa may be required for stays of more than three months.

Buying procedures should also remain the same though taxation on rental income will change. “There are no foreseen restrictions for Britons buying property in Spain, just as there are no restrictions for Swiss or Norwegian buyers. Both of those countries are also outside of the EU,” says Sean.

The two-bedroom, new-build apartment with sea and mountain views by Taylor Wimpey España, pictured left, is 222.000 euros. Sean says that as a rule, the total buying costs for a resale property will be somewhere between 10 and 11 per cent of the purchase price while the costs for a new-build property are about 13.5 to 14.5 per cent.

Taylor Wimpey España reveals what makes a Spanish holiday home perfect

  • Spanish holiday home
  • Families are seeking flexibility in how they use their space
  • Views of nature are important for relaxation
  • Buyers want homes for now and for ‘after’

Spanish holiday home: The COVID-19 pandemic has done much to change the way we think about our homes, both in terms of how we use them and in relation to the facilities that we want nearby. Nor does this only apply to main residences, as leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España reveals.

There’s a clear distinction between the kinds of questions potential buyers would ask before the pandemic and those they ask now. Buyers are now much more focused on the flexibility of the space within the home and how many open-air restaurants and sports facilities are available in the open area. There’s a COVID-related twist to their requirements now.”

Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España:

Flexibility is key to these requirements. Buyers are looking for homes that serve the whole family, with accommodation that is arranged in such a way as to facilitate multiple generations enjoying the property together. From the number of bathrooms to the placement of terraces and range of dining options, everything is being scrutinised through a slightly different lens.

In terms of the local area, beaches and golf courses, which southern Spain has in abundance, are still incredibly popular. But buyers now want to know much more about other open-air options. From water sports to outdoor dining, they are keen to understand what their options are when it comes to avoiding being indoors too much.

Spain’s climate certainly helps in this respect. While homeowners in the UK are preparing for the cold and rain of the winter months with a certain sense of trepidation, those in Andalusia can look forward to average temperatures of 15°C in November and 12°C in December.

Spanish second home buyers to live in Harmony with nature at new Taylor Wimpey España development

Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España has revealed its latest development – the stunning Harmony apartments at La Cala Golf Resort on the Costa del Sol. The development enjoys the highest location at La Cala, meaning the homes will deliver panoramic golf, sea and mountain views.

Harmony will provide 56 luxury homes spread across six buildings, including two- and three-bedroom apartments and three-bedroom penthouses and duplexes. It is the latest development resulting from the €120 million joint venture between Taylor Wimpey España and FBD Leisure (owners of La Cala), which has already delivered over 320 homes.

La Cala Unveils Next Stage Of Property Development Project: new apartments

La Cala has announced details of a €13.5 million project to build 56 luxury apartments at the luxury Spanish resort.

The Harmony Development will feature panoramic terraces offering views of the resort, which is located between the Sierra des Mijas mountains and the Mediterranean sea.

The project is the latest stage of a €120 million joint-venture between La Cala’s owners, FBD Leisure, and leading property developer Taylor Wimpey. More than 320 homes over six different developments have been already been constructed as part of a plan to build 1,000 homes on the resort over the next decade.

The City Council of Mijas gave the green light for construction in June, backing the continued plan to cement La Cala’s position as one of the most important tourist destinations on the Costa del Sol. The first phase delivery date for the Harmony Development is scheduled for the summer of 2022.

Director of La Cala Resort, Sean Corte-Real said: “The announcement of the Harmony Development is hugely significant. While these are extraordinarily challenging times for the local economy, we remain as determined as ever to invest in the future, and cement La Cala’s position as a bucket-list destination for golfers across Europe.”

Ignacio Oslé, Director of Taylor Wimpey Spain, said: “Despite the special circumstances that we have to live in, we are motivated to observe that there is still a real interest from the national and international public to acquire a new home in La Cala Resort. Even more so when the Resort offers a minimum density of housing, ample spaces for recreation, entertainment and sports for any family member.”

Taylor Wimpey España reveals 3 unexpected ways COVID has impacted second homes

Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España has spent more than 60 years satisfying clients’ wishes when it comes to what they want out of a second home. However, it seems that the COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to some unusual requirements.

“It’s a given that COVID-19 has caused buyers to want more spacious properties and decent WiFi connections, when they are looking at potential second homes, but we’ve seen buyer requirements and behaviour shift in other ways too. It’s as though the lines between second homes and main residences have begun to blur.”

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España

Q&A – is now the right time to put pounds into property in Spain?

Leading Spanish homebuilder Taylor Wimpey España launched two new developments this month – exclusive, frontline marina apartments at Pier 1 at the Marina de Sotogrande and prime golf properties at Kiruna Hills at the Alenda Golf Club.

Meanwhile, parent company Taylor Wimpey has just completed a capital raise of £522 million, providing a solid foundation for future growth.

Property Investor Today recently caught up with Marc Pritchard, sales and marketing director at Taylor Wimpey España, to find out why now is the right time to put pounds into property in Spain.

How will the recent news of Spain being removed from the quarantine exemption list affect the country’s property market?

While the quarantine news is unfortunate for those who have already traveled to Spain or plan to do so in the near future, I think we will increasingly have to get used to these kinds of rapid lockdowns and quarantines between countries as the world continues to battle the ongoing impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

This does not alter the fundamental advantages of owning a second home in Spain. It’s just a part of finding our collective feet as we establish the ‘new normal.’

Why is now such an exciting time to be building new homes in Spain?

Spain’s property market has been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, just like markets around the world. However, the impact has not been even. We’ve seen Q1 2020 second-hand property prices rise by 2.7% year-on-year, which reflects the market slowing down as the coronavirus took hold.

However, new-build property prices during Q1 were up by 6.1% year-on-year. The difference between the two is a clear signal that institutional investors still have plenty of interest in Spain.

COVID-conscious buyers opting for new build homes in exclusive Spanish enclaves

The second home market is alive and well in Spain, albeit in a more subdued fashion than before the COVID-19 outbreak, according to leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España. The company reports that buyers are prioritising new build apartments as they seek a share of the Spanish sunshine, with newly built homes delivering a range of advantages that particularly suit the new wave of COVID-conscious buyers.

“Right now, we’re seeing buyers looking for generously sized new builds with multiple private outdoor areas and spacious communal grounds. They’re also interested in nearby open-air activities, from golf to yachting, as well as easy access to Spain’s fabulous beaches. For COVID-conscious buyers, the ability to personalise their new home by buying off plan is also important – the pandemic has made many families focus intently on internal layout and the way that they use their home.”

Would you buy property on a golf resort after coronavirus?

More buyers are choosing to invest in a home where they can play this socially distanced sport.

However, for British buyers, Spain’s Costa del Sol still retains a magnetic pull, with 70 golf courses along the coast and inland. “All but one of our Costa del Sol developments has a golf course. In a post-pandemic world, buyers are looking to the fairways to provide them with exercise, space and fresh air,” says Marc Pritchard of Taylor Wimpey España, whose developments include Sun Valley at La Cala Golf Resort in Mijas (taylorwimpeyspain.com), with two-bedders from €241,000. “Various golf resorts in the Murcia and Almeria regions are still struggling from the last crisis, but frontline properties on the Costa del Sol are getting expensive again, so people are looking to golf resorts up to a maximum of six miles inland.”

The Costa Blanca coast around Alicante also offers some of Spain’s best-value new golf properties, including Taylor Wimpey España’s Kiruna Residencial scheme at Alenda Golf in Elche, where three-bedroom townhouses start at €189,000 (taylorwimpeyspain.com).

TAYLOR WIMPEY RAISES £522M FOR LAND ACQUISITIONS

Taylor Wimpey land acquisitions

Taylor Wimpey raises £522 million from investors to buy land in the U.K. and various European countries such as Spain. The British housebuilder aims to take advantage of potentially cheaper land prices due to the pandemic.

The developer is launching two new projects on Spain’s Costa Blanca with a €48 million investment which were scheduled to launch in March, but have been delayed by the coronavirus. One of these developments, Essential, is planned in Javea and will consist of two and three-bedroom apartments whilst the second is projected in Santa Pola, and will consist of 170 apartments with two and three bedrooms and sea views.

The group said it had received «strong support» for the share placing with institutional and retail investors, having originally aimed to raise £500 million. Announcing the plans late on Wednesday, Taylor said it is «now seeing a significant opportunity to invest in land at attractive prices».

Taylor said the disruption in Britain’s land market as result of the Covid-19 crisis has created «short-term opportunities to acquire land from a broad range of sources at attractive returns and prices below pre-Covid-19 levels».

It has continued to actively acquire land throughout the pandemic, buying 12 sites in recent weeks.

The group said the money raised – including £200,000 from chief executive Pete Redfern – would go towards another 13 sites it is currently buying as well as 60 more the group is in discussions to acquire.

The British Firm Taylor Wimpey Launches Luxury Home Projects in Sotogrande and Alicante

The property developer plans to invest 13.2 million euros in two new developments on the Spanish coast.

New developments in Sotogrande and Alicante.

Taylor Wimpey España is venturing into the post-pandemic market for luxury housing in Spain as sources from the company explain, “because tourists come to our shores, and with them the demand for new residential homes.”

The property developer is going to make its first foray into the coast in Cádiz, with a new development comprising 4 homes in Sotogrande (San Roque, Cádiz), in which it will invest €4.8 million. The homes, which will span 269 m2 will have a starting price of €1,365,000 + VAT.

Positivity returns to Spanish second homes market

Spanish second home market

Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España has announced the launch of two brand new developments, in the latest sign that Spain is returning to some kind of normal. Kiruna Hills, at Alenda Golf, Alicante, and Pier 1, at the prestigious Marina de Sotogrande on the Costa del Sol will provide second home buyers with plenty of choice as the Spanish property market gets back into the swing of things once more.

Summer holidays in Spain aren’t quite business as usual just yet, but they’re certainly looking a lot closer to it than many would have imagined a couple of months ago. With travel restrictions lifted by Spain and the UK exempting those flying in from there from having to enter quarantine for 14 days, the scene has been set for Britons to enjoy sun-kissed summer holidays once more.

Even before the Spanish air bridge was announced, Ryanair’s first wave of flights to numerous international destinations on 1 July were running two-thirds full, with 105,000 passengers jetting off for some much-needed rest and relaxation after months of being stuck in the UK.

Many airlines are ramping up their flights to Spain for the summer season in response to customer demand. Mallorca has proven to be of particular interest, according to Travelsupermarket, after the island acted as a testbed for safe travel prior to the rest of Spain opening up. The price comparison site reported a 96% increase in online searches for trips to Mallorca following the government in Spain bringing forward the date that it would reopen to international visitors.

Even before the Spanish air bridge was announced, Ryanair’s first wave of flights to numerous international destinations on 1 July were running two-thirds full, with 105,000 passengers jetting off for some much-needed rest and relaxation after months of being stuck in the UK.

Many airlines are ramping up their flights to Spain for the summer season in response to customer demand. Mallorca has proven to be of particular interest, according to Travelsupermarket, after the island acted as a testbed for safe travel prior to the rest of Spain opening up. The price comparison site reported a 96% increase in online searches for trips to Mallorca following the government in Spain bringing forward the date that it would reopen to international visitors.

“It’s certainly going to be an unusual summer in Spain in many ways, but the sunshine, stunning beaches and superb gastronomy are still here, meaning that those who do come to Spain for their holidays this year have plenty to look forward to. For second home owners, Spain offers a welcome relief from the stresses of daily life – as it has always done – with the outdoor lifestyle holding huge appeal. All of this contributed to our decision to launch two new developments this month, providing plenty of choice for those looking to buy a bolthole in Spain.”

The properties in Spain in demand with British buyers

Properties in Spain: Now that lockdown in the country has lifted, the search for holiday homes is on

After three months of strict lockdown, Spain’s nueva normalidad, as the country is calling its post-Covid phase, looks rather different to what its millions of foreign visitors each year are used to.

Masks must be worn in many areas, sunbathers are using tape to stake out their socially distanced space on the beach, and the police are scrutinising the number of people in bars and restaurants. From Las Ramblas in Barcelona to Paseo Maritimo in Marbella, streets that would usually be packed with tourists at this time of year are looking a little deserted.

After their enforced three-month siesta, estate agents are back blinking in the sunlight, and dealing with a high number of inquiries from British house-hunters. Taylor Wimpey España, which has new developments on the Costa del Sol, Costa Blanca and in Mallorca, reported an 88% increase in traffic to its website in May compared with the same month last year.

Now that borders have reopened and flight bans and quarantine restrictions have been lifted — in part, says the country’s foreign minister, Arancha Gonzalez Laya, to reunite 400,000 British homeowners with their Iberian second homes — many of us will be heading to Spain this summer.

“Buyers are looking at being able to work from their second home far more than they used to,” Stewart says. “They want to spend more time in their Spanish homes in future.”

Taylor Wimpey España reveals second homes for the new normal

  • Second homes in Spain: new mindset
  • Quarantine on British visitors to Spain lifted from 21 June
  • UK visitors to Taylor Wimpey España website up 88% in May
  • Larger homes, on-site sports facilities and plentiful outdoor space topping buyers’ wish lists

Spain has lifted its requirement for British visitors arriving in the country to enter quarantine. From 21 June, Brits travelling to Spain no longer have to self-isolate and will instead undergo temperature checks and register to enable tracing. Arrangements are also being put in place to allocate regional locations for the treatment and isolation of any visitors who may need it. Visitors, along with local residents, can now also travel between the different Spanish provinces as lockdown restrictions continue to ease.

For Spain’s 400,000 British second home owners, the news has come as a welcome relief. Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España is aware that many owners are now looking at their second homes with a new mindset, wondering if a winter second wave spent locked down in the Spanish sunshine might be more enjoyable than one spent in the cold and rain of the UK. Visitor numbers to the company’s website certainly reflect this increased desire to visit Spain, with UK visitors up 88% in May, compared with the same month in 2019.

According to the Taylor Wimpey España team, those currently considering purchasing a home in Spain are certainly thinking carefully about the kinds of facilities that would best suit them in the event of future lockdowns. Potential buyers are looking at everything from larger homes with private gardens to those with terraces that offer inspirational views. Pools, communal gardens and on-site and local sports facilities are also coming under scrutiny, as are the tranquillity of the development and its proximity to key amenities such as supermarkets and pharmacies.

Taylor Wimpey España: safety and security for second home buyers

Safety home

Airlines are also getting ready to serve those who will once more be allowed to visit Spain. Wizz Air has announced four new Spanish routes for this summer, while KLM has added flights to Alicante and Malaga to its schedule for July. The Lufthansa Group, meanwhile, will see four of its airlines making 165 flights per week to Spanish airports from 15 June.

“There’s definitely a sense of both expectation and relief when thinking about the summer season now. I think it’s fair to say that Spain won’t be continuing its run of record-breaking visitor numbers this summer, but we’ve seem some notable spikes in interest during the lockdown, which it will be interesting to see play out over the next few months.”

At Taylor Wimpey España, total leads in May 2020 were up by 109% when compared to the same month in 2019. British website visitors, meanwhile, were up by 83%. Overall, British buyers remain the homebuilder’s top nationality, accounting for 19% of total sales year-to-date in May.

Properties such as Pier, which overlooks the Marina de Sotogrande in Cadiz, hold plenty of appeal to British buyers. The spacious apartments with their large terraces provide easy access to a host of socially distanced outdoor activities, from nautical pursuits through the next-door yacht club to golf at the prestigious San Roque Golf Club. Prices at the private, gated development, which features lush communal gardens and pool, start from €360,000 plus VAT.

Like Taylor Wimpey España, Rightmove has also reported a surge in interest in Spanish property. Searches for properties overseas by UK residents were up 33% in May 2020 when compared with May 2019, with searches for Spanish property up 34%.

“Many buyers are now considering where they might like to spend future lockdowns and a lot of them are looking to Spain for a solution. A home where they can relax close to beach and golf facilities, with their own outdoor space included for enjoying the sunshine, perfectly fits the bill.”

Taylor Wimpey España prioritises safety and security for second home buyers

España second home:

Like many businesses right now, leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España is getting to grips with the new version of normal that is evolving all around us. Spain is partway through a phased easing of lockdown restrictions and is now able to look ahead to the summer season that is so vital to its economy.

For Taylor Wimpey España, that has meant opening show homes and welcoming back potential buyers, albeit with strict rules in place around how viewings work. When Spain’s travel restrictions lift on July 1, the company is expecting a surge in interest as visitors from overseas can once more view its properties.

“We’re expecting quite a busy couple of months, thanks to the pent-up demand that will be released when the travel restrictions end. Many buyers now have different priorities in mind. The open-air pursuits of the Costa del Sol, Costa Blanca and Mallorca – golf, the beach, al fresco dining – are all suddenly vastly more attractive, as is owning a home in the sunshine with decent outdoor terraces or gardens.”

While the Spanish government initially said that it would not reopen the country’s borders until July 1, the islands of Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza are going to open earlier – from 15 June – in order to test new coronavirus protocols.

Meanwhile, the Costa del Sol is gearing up to make the most of a very different kind of summer season than it is used to. Francisco Salado, President of Costa del Sol Tourism and Planning, recently expressed his optimism regarding a rise in the number of Spaniards looking to visit Andalucia, as well as a spike in interest from overseas tourists.

Spain opens for summer, as arrivals quarantine dropped from 1 July

Summer 2020:  Spain has already relaxed a range of lockdown measures, with the result that life in the sun-kissed holiday destination is moving towards a new kind of normal. And, as leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España points out, the country is ideally suited to those looking to pursue a more socially distant life.

With beaches, golf courses and restaurants with terraces all open for business once more, Spain has plenty of leisure options to offer those visiting. The fantastic sunny weather means that it’s the perfect time to enjoy the great outdoors and there’s a real sense of gearing up for the summer season now, which felt almost unimaginable just a few weeks ago.”

Some 80 million tourists visit Spain every year, though 2020 is going to be a notable exception. While visits to major cities may not hold quite the same appeal, walks along the beach and a few rounds of golf in the sunshine seem like the perfect antidote to the cabin fever of lockdown.

At Taylor Wimpey España, the new normal is becoming established already. The company’s sales offices are open once more, for pre-booked viewings with strictly limited attendee numbers. Masks and gloves are compulsory and available at every site, while each show home is cleaned thoroughly between visits. Several appointments have already been booked, both by domestic buyers and by foreigners already living in the area.

Figures from the company highlight the keen interest that those in the UK still have in Spanish second homes. Web visitors from the UK have risen by 65% over the past three months. Growth in April alone was up 56% when compared with the same month a year previously.

Your place in the sun: SPAIN

Sales and marketing director at developer Taylor Wimpey España, said buyers may benefit from today’s low interest rates, but cautious lenders may tighten criteria so start planning your finances in advance.
There may be bargains out there but tread carefully: “If buying new, look for experienced developers with the financial strength to survive the crisis.”
Pritchard said buyers can carry out virtual online property visits, researching their chosen area using Google Maps and Images, or contact developers direct.
Dreams of a home in the sun endure. added: “Spain’s sunny weather, beaches, golf courses, lifestyle and gastronomy will still be there when the lockdown ends.”

Spain construction sector swings back into action, what can the UK learn?

  • Spain construction swings back into action
  • Taylor Wimpey España shares experiences of lockdown easing
  • Virtual viewings and social distancing here to stay
  • Fully refundable deposits and furniture vouchers helping to kickstart sales

Spain and the UK have a number of striking similarities in terms of their COVID-19 journey, with the Iberian country leading the UK by a few weeks both in terms of implementing its lockdown and easing it.

This means that the UK has plenty to learn from the Spain construction sector. In that vein, leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España has been sharing its experiences of trying to establish a ‘new normal’ for property viewings and sales.

The Spanish construction industry, and indeed its property market as a whole, ground to a halt when the country went into lockdown. Thankfully we were able to start building again on 20 April and will be reopening our show homes on 18 May, but that doesn’t mean that everything is back to normal. We have strict new safety guidelines in place across our construction sites and show home viewings will be by pre-booked appointment only. We will also continue to encourage potential buyers to visit our properties virtually, to get a feel for them from a distance.”

With the real estate sector accounting for 10.5% of Spain’s GDP (2019), kickstarting the market rapidly is essential to the country’s recovery from the economic impact of COVID-19. It’s a process in which each company has a role to play, according to the Taylor Wimpey España team.

It’s time for companies to innovate like never before. We need to get the economy moving again as swiftly as possible. That’s why we’re introducing a range of new measures in order to support buyers to move forward with their second home ownership plans once more.”

Top tips for Spanish property buyers – experts offer their guidance

Top tips for Spanish property buyers

In recent weeks we have extensively covered the impact of Covid-19 on British buyers in Spain, including how buying with a Spanish mortgage could help and how purchasers can push ahead with their second home dreams despite the ongoing pandemic.

Here, to offer further expert guidance, we speak to Taylor Wimpey España.

Interest high despite the ongoing crisis

“Uncertainty is now the main word in this exceptional situation,” “We do not know when and how this alarming situation will finish. It depends on the government and the World Health Organisation.”

But he says interest from overseas investors in Spanish property is still very much there.

“We are still receiving leads from people interested in Taylor Wimpey España properties in all areas,” he claims. “We are attending to them online and by phone and will book appointments once people can move and travel freely once more.”

Interestingly, the firm has noticed some distinct opportunities as a result of the lockdown. “Many people are dreaming of homes with terraces, larger properties, communal facilities, reliable WiFi…and they would like to travel and buy abroad”

Will it take a long while for things in Spain to get back to normal, given how bad the impact has been in the country?

“Our forecast is that it will take one year for the Spanish tourism industry to return to its pre-coronavirus state. Tourism accounts for 15% of Spain’s total GDP and keeps many people in work. The country will be working as one to recover from this situation ASAP.”

But can things ever really be the same again, given the severity of the pandemic and its impact on all parts of life? “We need to be patient and work hard together,” Pritchard says. “Spain’s attractions will be there forever: 300 days of sunshine per year, sports facilities, beaches, golf courses, gastronomy, lifestyle, etc.”

He says Taylor Wimpey España has been working in Spain for over 60 years, suffering through and surviving the 2008 crisis. “We are now facing unprecedented market conditions,” he admits, but says: “We will still be here when the crisis ends, helping to support things to return to normal so far as possible.”

Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España would normally be showing eager potential buyers around its spacious golf and beachfront properties, showcasing their generous terraces and solariums, which are ideal for enjoying Spain’s 300 annual days of sunshine.

Instead, the Taylor Wimpey España team are holed up indoors, just as their potential buyers are. However, the company is not losing heart.

  “We’ve been building in Spain for the past 60 years and have weathered some choppy economic and political waters during that time. Our message then, as now, is to keep calm and carry on. We will be here waiting when the world returns to normal and second home buyers can once more take their holiday property ownership dreams back into their own hands!”

In the meantime, the Taylor Wimpey España team are inviting all those dreaming of Spain to kick back and dream of the Spanish culture. Of the scents and flavours of the fresh, local gastronomy of the UNESCO-recognised Mediterranean diet. Of the feeling of warm sand between your toes or the sea washing over them. Of warm people welcoming you to charming villages. Of sun, wine and the freedom of the great outdoors.

Whether you’re a beach bunny or seriously into sports, Taylor Wimpey España has the perfect holiday home available. Their key-ready properties will enable buyers to act fast once normality returns.

Island Retreat: Getting To Know Cala Vinyes In Mallorca

Taylor Wimpey España, which has been developing second homes across the Spanish mainland and islands for the past 60 years. Marc moved to Mallorca from his native Germany 30 years ago and one of his favourite spots on the island is Cala Vinyes.

He told LLM why: “Cala Vinyes is a wonderfully peaceful little resort that has a real family vibe. It’s ideal for those looking for a retreat from the pace of modern life. If casting a fishing line into the sea from a sun-kissed rocky outcrop is your idea of heaven, then Cala Vinyes is the place to go.”

Mallorca has been a playground for the rich and famous for decades

While quiet enough for family-focused holidays, Cala Vinyes is just a few kilometres from two of Mallorca’s busiest resorts: Palma Nova and Magaluf. It means that the bright lights and entertainment options of those resorts are easily accessible, while visitors can easily retreat to the more sedate pace of Cala Vinyes.

Some of Mallorca’s most exclusive marinas, such as Puerto Portals and Port Adriano, are only a few minutes’ drive from Cala Vinyes, as are a wide variety of elegant bars and restaurants. There are plenty of designer stores in the area for those who like to shop in the sunshine.

On the south west coast of the island, Cala Vinyes is also just 15 minutes from the capital, Palma, meaning that those staying there have swift access to all they could need, from the island’s best restaurants, stores and nightlife to a thriving arts scene and lively café culture.

The beach at Cala Vinyes is just what visitors to Mallorca are seeking: golden sands, palm trees and calm waters that are ideal for swimming. Just a few minutes’ walk away, Cala Falco is also well worth a visit. The picturesque, natural and quiet sandy beach has crystal-clean water and is surrounded by rocky outlets and pine forests. The small beach club and restaurant that resides there offers stylish seats, loungers and sun beds for visitors to relax on while overlooking the glistening waters of the Bay of Cap Falco.

Taylor Wimpey España delivers message of hope and solidarity

Solidarity: Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España is sharing a message of positivity and hope for the Spanish property market. Despite staff being in lock-down right now, the company is looking to the future and focusing on the day when the sun will shine brightly on the Spanish coast once more.

The Taylor Wimpey España team, along with all those in Spain right now, is living through unprecedented times. We offer our thoughts and our solidarity to all those trapped at home right now – along with some ideas that will hopefully provide inspiration for making time at home a bit more bearable.”

Ideas for defeating boredom at home including reading, cooking new recipes, colouring, giving yourself a home spa-day/makeover, taking online courses, learning a new language, binge-watching TV series, model-making and a whole host of other artistic and creative activities.

 

Of course, many of those stuck at home will be working remotely for the first time. Defining your workspace, making it neat and orderly and setting a new schedule can all be a huge help when it comes to adjusting to this enforced transition.

It’s also important to maintain contact with as broad a support network as possible, both professionally and personally. From FaceTime to Zoom, there’s plenty of technology in place to keep everyone connected, no matter where they may be.

Being at home also presents the perfect chance to have a serious spring clean. Whether it’s Marie Kondo-ing your property until it’s looking shipshape or rearranging your living room (or dining room, or bedroom, or every room!), enjoying your home as much as possible is essential.

“There has never been a better time to try your hand at feng shui or simply rearrange your home to try a fresh look. If you’re in need of inspiration, then we hope that our show homes, which can be viewed online, will serve as a source of ideas.”

Brits were the top nationality of buyers across December 2019 and January 2020.

Andalucia was the most popular region for property sales with 19.55% of total sales according to Colegio de Registradores, with Catalunya coming second at 16.41%.

The Costa del Sol according to Taylor Wimpey Espana was the most popular area, with almost all British buyers during that period choosing that coast of the sun as the place to buy.

Taylor Wimpey Espana Sales and Marketing Director said: “The British love of the Costa del Sol dates back decades.

“While the drawn-out Brexit process caused many buyers to pause, they are now pushing ahead with their plans and buying Spanish second homes at an impressive pace.

“With a range of styles and price points available, the Costa del Sol is perfectly positioned to meet varying needs as sales pick up speed, during 2020.

“It’s that time of year when many British families are planning and looking forward to their summer holidays.

Tourism España: Booming tourism and British buyer interest set scene for Iconic

Tourism España

  • Iconic will be one of most ambitious Taylor Wimpey España developments to date
  • Gran Alacant to be home to 170 new 2- and 3-bed apartments
  • Visitor numbers to Spain up 1.1% in 2019
  • Sales to British buyers up 233% YTD at Taylor Wimpey España

There’s no question that Spain’s tourism sector had a good year last year. The National Statistics Institute (INE) reports a 1.1% increase in visitor numbers in 2019 (compared with 2018), with 83.7 million foreign tourists spending €92.278 million (a 2.8% increase on 2018).

With increased visitor numbers comes increased interest in second homes and figures from leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España show that Britons are leading the charge. UK interest in the company’s website was up by 32% year to date in February, while second home sales to British buyers were up by a staggering 233%.

The trend is mirrored by figures from Kyero, where international buyer figures rose 23% in 2019 when compared to 2018, with British website visitor numbers up 32% year on year as at Q4 2019.

It is against this booming backdrop that Taylor Wimpey España has launched its latest development: Iconic.

 “Iconic is one of our largest and most ambitious developments to date. We’re delighted to have found a fantastic location, overlooking the beautiful El Carabassi beach in Gran Alacant, just 20 minutes from Alicante centre. Iconic will not only deliver contemporary homes, but superb on-site amenities, providing second home buyers with everything they could wish for in this popular tourist area.”

The 170 two- and three-bedroom/two-bathroom apartments have been carefully designed to offer a variety of outlooks, including views of the sea, the beach and Iconic’s pool and lush private gardens. The homes come with private underground parking, storage rooms, garden areas and parking for bicycles. There’s also a children’s play area and an outdoor gym circuit.

British buyers in Spain surge by 125% as Taylor Wimpey España

British buyers in Spain: Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España has reported a 125% jump in British buyer numbers, as the uncertainty around the UK’s departure from the EU has finally turned into action. Brits were the top buyer nationality in both December 2019 and January 2020, with total growth across the two months standing at 125%.

Almost all British buyers during that period were focused on properties in the Costa del Sol. It’s one of three areas that the Taylor Wimpey España team has flagged up as Spanish summer hotspots this year. Of particular interest is the prestigious La Cala Golf resort, where holidaymakers and second home buyers can enjoy a wide range of luxurious facilities, including tennis, football and spa facilities, top end dining experiences and three superb championship golf courses.

Some of the best homes for enjoying the stunning views that stretch out over the fairways and rolling countryside to the distant mountains are the key-ready apartments at Grand View. Available from €265,000 + VAT, the two- and three-bedroom homes enjoy both a beautiful setting and high-end fixtures and fittings. They offer ample outdoor space in the form of terraces, while communal facilities include landscaped gardens and a large communal pool.

The British love of the Costa del Sol dates back decades. While the drawn-out Brexit process caused many buyers to pause they are now pushing ahead with their plans and buying Spanish second homes at an impressive pace. With a range of styles and price points available, the Costa del Sol is perfectly positioned to meet varying needs as sales pick up speed during 2020.”

Taylor Wimpey Spain plans to invest 92 million in seven new promotions

Taylor Wimpey Spain plans to launch seven new promotions in the first half of the year that will involve an investment of 92 million euros and the construction of 430 homes.

The areas in which the company plans to expand are Mallorca, where it will launch a total of three promotions, followed by Costa Blanca and the Costa de Sol, with two each.

Specifically, in Mallorca, Taylor Wimpey Spain will launch the first promotion of 2020. This is Compass Cala d’Or, a project of apartments with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, five minutes walk from the marina.

“The coastal areas remain key in the purchase of a residential home in Spain, beyond considering them an investment, who buys here wants to settle in the country, either as a first or second residence,” explained the director of sales and marketing by Taylor Wimpey in Spain, Marc Pritchard.

In addition, Pritchard has stressed that the main challenge for the company in 2020 is sustainability, so in the promotions they will bet to include “large” green areas with “large” gardens.

New home

Taylor Wimpey Spain has created a new concept of housing, taking advantage of the space with a living room open to the terrace, which can be accessed from the living room and both bedrooms and integrating the kitchen with the dining room, thus achieving natural light and the feeling of amplitude. The ground floors have terraces with porch and gardens for private use. All homes include parking and storage.

According to specialists consulted by the developer, the real estate market will continue to grow in 2020 in Spain, offering “interesting” opportunities for foreign investors. Thus, a 5% increase in the number of home sales is expected.

Taylor Wimpey España celebrates sellout success to start the 2020s

Taylor Wimpey success: The end of a year – let alone the end of a decade – is the ideal time to look back and reflect on past successes, as well as to look to the future. In the case of leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España, one of 2019’s successes has been selling out its La Vila Paradis development in Villajoyosa (Alicante).

“It’s always an exciting moment to sell the final property in a development – particularly so when it’s been a phased build over several years. La Vila Paradis has attracted a diverse range of buyers and we are delighted that so many families have been able to enjoy cherished holiday experiences as a result of their purchases.”

The first line, two- and three-bedroom apartments and three-bedroom townhouses at Playa Paraiso provide direct beach access and impressive sea views, as well as a communal pool and attractive, landscaped gardens.

La Vila Paradis was built in four phases, providing a total of 134 properties. Taylor Wimpey España began selling the homes in 2013, selling the last home of the final phase in 2019. The buyers are a mix of those using their apartments as holiday homes and those living there year-round.

In terms of nationalities, Russian buyers snapped up the most homes at La Vila Paradis, accounting for 21% of total sales. They were followed by Belgians (16%), Norwegians (13%), Spaniards (10%), Swedes (10%) and a selection of other nationalities. British buyers accounted for 5% of the total sales.

“Sales at La Vila Paradis reflect the broad range of interest in the Costa Blanca, with people from across Europe and beyond seeking their own piece of the Spanish sunshine. The area has so much to offer – beaches, golf, shopping, history, culture, incredible gastronomy… its charms appeal to young and old alike, making it the ideal family holiday hotspot. We’ve seen this reflected in the popularity of our developments there over the past decade and it’s why we intend to continue focusing on this area during the 2020s.”

Greenery wins out over beaches as Taylor Wimpey reveals 2019’s best-selling holiday homes

Holiday Homes: Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España has revealed its bestselling resorts, providing fascinating insights into what Britons buying in different parts of Spain are looking for.

In the Costa Blanca, for example, British buyers are all about homes that offer extensive outdoor space. At Kiruna Residencial, where the three-bedroom townhouses are priced from €178,000 plus VAT, that’s precisely what they get. The homes are available to move into or holiday in before Christmas. Each of the stylish townhouses comes with a 14 m2 terrace, an impressive 50 m2 roof terrace and a pretty, 26 m2 garden. That’s in addition to the development’s landscaped gardens and communal pool.

Kiruna Residencial’s location at Alenda Golf means that buyers have plenty more wide open space around them too. Interestingly, British buyers in the Costa del Sol have also put nature at the top of their wish list; Taylor Wimpey España’s Botanic has proven to be its most popular development in that area.

Botanic beat frontline golf homes and beachfront apartments in order to become Brits’ favourite Costa del Sol resort in 2019, based on Taylor Wimpey España’s reservation figures. The development is built around principles of sustainability, ecology and bioclimatic architecture. Split across different ground levels, it provides exceptional views of the surrounding countryside and golf course, all the way to the sea, some 7 km away.
