Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España points out the difference that buying a newly built home can make. Its beautiful new apartments at Solemar in Casares Beach (Malaga) are rated A for their energy efficiency, thanks to careful consideration of sustainability features during their design and construction. Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey España, explains:
“Newly built properties are built using modern methods of construction that encompass a range of techniques that weren’t used for older homes. Our homes at Solemar, for example, feature aerothermal heating to draw energy from the outside air and reduce CO2 emissions. We’ve reduced thermal bridges as part of the homes’ design too, to improve energy efficiency throughout the lifecycle of the building. Older properties don’t benefit from recent advances in technology and construction such as these.”

The need for an energy efficient home is particularly relevant to British buyers in Spain, as Britons buy more homes there than any other foreign nationality. Figures from the Spanish Colegio Registradores for Q3 2023 show that 10.11% of all purchases by foreigners are made by Britons, with the number of Britons buying up by 8.7% (compared to a rise of 1.3% across all foreign buyers).

Taylor Wimpey España’s 65+ years of building homes in Spain has seen a long-term trend of British buyers favouring homes in the Costa del Sol, over and above other areas. With stunning beaches, pristine golf courses and more than 300 sunny days per year, it’s easy to see why.

Buyers in the Costa del Sol can choose from a range of homes, including urban properties in vibrant towns, beachfront apartments, golf homes and country properties with land. Taylor Wimpey España’s new, energy efficient homes are spread across the area, with a range of beachfront and golf properties currently available. At Solemar, select apartments enjoy spectacular sea views, while the two- and three-bedroom homes also benefit from lovely outdoor terraces or gardens and a generously sized communal pool.
