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.”
