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.”
