Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España has announced that it will launch five new developments during the first quarter of 2021, in a move that signals the company’s confidence in the long-term appeal of Spanish second homes.
“We’ve seen plenty of interest in Spanish second homes during 2020, despite the COVID-19 pandemic. Many buyers are waiting out the travel and lifestyle restrictions and spending this time planning their property purchase. We’re going to be fully prepared when that pent-up demand is suddenly released in 2021.” commented the Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España.
The five new launches will include Essential in Javea (Costa Blanca), Marbella Lake in Nueva Andalucia (Marbella) and three developments in Mallorca. Just as with Taylor Wimpey España’s key-ready developments, they will feature communal pools and gardens in addition to the carefully designed homes with their spacious outdoor terraces, solariums and/or private gardens.
iProperty Management recently revealed Spain to be the country that most people want to relocate to. Figures from the Spanish Registrars, meanwhile, have shown that even national lockdowns can’t stop foreigners flocking to buy homes in Spain. During Q2 2020, foreigners accounted for 35.2% of all home sales in Alicante and for 24.6% in the Balearic Islands.
“Spain retains all of those fundamental elements that second home buyers are looking for – sunshine, beaches, golf, a superb gastronomic scene and excellent value for money” said Marc. “It is also ideally suited to spending time outdoors throughout the year. Sitting on a terrace in the sunshine during a lockdown is a very different experience from being stuck indoors in the rain. That has been a driving factor for several of those who have purchased homes from us during the pandemic.”
Taylor Wimpey España is also offering key-ready homes at a range of sites. Botanic, at La Reserva de Alcuzcuz, Benahavis (Malaga), offers a next-level experience for buyers looking to connect with the natural environment. Created in accordance with the principles of sustainability, ecology and bioclimatic architecture, the development integrates vertical gardens and green corridors into the design, respecting the variety of species and indigenous trees in the area while providing a stunning panorama over the gently sloping land leading down to the sea. The bright, three-bedroom homes have spacious, south-facing terraces and cost from €430,000 plus VAT.
