Moving to southern Spain is a dream shared by many expats or second-home owners who love the climate, cuisine, culture, fiestas, festivals and great places to explore from vibrant historic cities to breathtakingly beautiful natural parks, lakes and mountains.
We can think of dozens of reasons why Malaga’s a great place to live and to invest in property.
Here are 6 Reasons to Look at Property for Sale in Malaga and the Costa del Sol to get you started …
Location. Location. Location.
With international airports at Malaga and Gibraltar, good road links between the major Costa del Sol beach resorts as well as the cities of Cordoba, Sevilla and Granada, and fast rail links, Malaga is in a great position for exploring glorious Andalusia. Add to this the beautiful beaches, natural parks, mountains for hiking and skiing, and more than 50 golf courses and you can see why Malaga continues to attract expats and property investors from throughout Europe and further afield.
The Cost Of Living In Malaga.
Although not as cheap as it once was, Malaga is still great value for money especially with the pound performing well against the euro. You may find the internet and mobile phone contracts are higher than the UK, but other bills such as rubbish collection, local council taxes, electricity, public transport fares and food are cheaper. It’s also much more affordable to eat out with a three-course lunchtime menu available for as little as €8. In some establishments in Andalusia, the tradition of offering a little dish of tapas with your afternoon drinks is still respected.
Get More Property For Your Money In Malaga.
There are lots of promotions of bank repossessions, offering great value for money. They tell you that you can pick up a property for sale in Malaga for less than €100,000. However, we do recommend you proceed carefully with bank properties and consult an expert.
Generally, most areas are more affordable than many UK regions with the meridian price of a two-bed property in Malaga being €199,500 and a three-bed is €295,000. Obviously if you want to move to the prestigious parts of Marbella or Sotogrande you will pay a higher price for your property. Enlisting our Property Finder Services will ensure you find the best property for you.
Safe Investment In Bricks And Mortar.
Although property prices are still much lower than their peak values in 2006, they are starting to go up and the market is certainly picking up thanks to overseas buyers. The relatively strong pound and US dollar compared to the euro have sparked a lot of interest in buying property in Malaga. Property prices in the Malaga region are now up to 83% of their peak prices and were up 10% this year compared to 2014, so now is a good time to invest.
Buy-to-let properties are great investment opportunities in Malaga and the Costa del Sol. They bring in an income as it is possible to rent your property throughout the year, thanks to the great sports facilities and climate in southern Spain. The region is a top holiday destination for people from northern European countries, especially the UK, and so is one of the best rental markets in the Mediterranean.
A Fabulous Move For All The Family
The Malaga and Costa del Sol region is popular with people of all ages. Families with children love the quality of schools, from state-run schools to independent institutes so youngsters have a choice of following the Spanish education system or continuing with the English curriculum. There is an abundance of leisure activities to keep the children occupied from sports clubs to great theme parks with fair rides, waterparks and safari parks. It’s a safe place for children to play outside, enjoy an outdoor lifestyle and make lots of new friends.
A Great Quality Of Life In Malaga
As well as great property prices, potential rental income, top transport links, fabulous sports facilities especially golf and water sports, and those amazing beaches, you will also enjoy a top-class quality of life when you move to Malaga. The Mediterranean cuisine which is rich in fish, seasonal fruit and vegetables, salads, pulses and olive oil is hailed as being one of the healthiest diets in the world. The abundance of sports and great places to enjoy a walk from a beachfront promenade to a mountain hike along with the 320 days or more of sunshine are also very beneficial to your health. The laid back lifestyle and friendly people – some say Andalusia is the friendliest region in all of Spain – will also help you enjoy a relatively stress-free and far more enjoyable way of life than in the colder, less out-going northern climates.
