Market trends usually predict that in the city, residents seek stylish and central properties. However in Marbella there is just as much demand for a beachside home as there is for a mountain villa, equally for a golf course penthouse as there is for a central city apartment.
Indeed, there are many who look to the southern coast of Spain as the ideal location to invest in a secondary home, thus whilst demand for property is quality orientated (in light of the luxury lifestyle Marbella and surrounding areas such as Puerto Banús are renowned for), traditional older properties are still very much the hidden gems as they are very well constructed with the ability to be renovated and reconstructed to a high standard. The Costa del Sol really is the home to property that appeals to everyone… the hardest decision becomes in choosing which one you prefer.
Aside from the type of property, there are of course other factors that come into play when choosing the right home. Here are a few that we consider to be the most important:
Design
There is a definite trend in people choosing to opt for a modern home, thus open plan interiors with large glass windows to take advantage of the natural day light, alongside fitted kitchens boasting top appliances. Though service is also becoming an important aspect as well as modern designs and luxuries and the result of which is that new developments often feature clubhouses with reception areas, lounges and gyms where the purpose of the design becomes not only about what looks good on the outside, but what it can provide.
Technology
Whilst synonymous with a high standard of living, not everyone can afford, (nor wants) a fully comp home automation system to control blinds and lights. Of course there are the basics such as wifi, air conditioning and satellite TV that one would expect in the modern day home and good security is always a feature that potential buyers will be attracted to.
Location
Location, location, location. The answer seldom varies… near to the sea! Although inland properties enjoy more house for your money and offer equally as good views. Indeed, the ideal balance is in accessibility but with a degree of privacy. The ability to walk to the beach or golf course becomes an important factor to consider if you wish to increase the rental potential of your property.
Amenities
In general, people seek a property that is stylish and easy to maintain. Most complexes offer communal garden and pool areas that also enjoy the variety of restaurants and bars at their doorstep.
Price
It goes without saying that buyers are attracted by good opportunities. As aforementioned, older style properties are being discovered at reasonable prices with the recognition that they can be renovated and refurbished to a high standard.
