Property Purchasing Trends On The Costa Del Sol 

With the COVID-19 pandemic affecting our lives in one way or another, the way we live and where we want to live have drastically changed for the majority of us. So many of us strive to live in the hustle and bustle of the city. Restaurants, bars, theatres and people filled our social lives, sacrificing the outside and bigger homes in order to live in the city. 2020 has changed the property purchasing trends on the Costa Del Sol and we look into what these trends are. 

But many of us have spent our lives at home, in the year 2020, with little outdoor space. Slowly realised the importance of living in a place that feels inviting, warm and welcoming for us and our loved ones. We realised that home is so important and it is clear that the needs and demands have changed during this year. We look into the real estate trends on the Costa Del Sol, what people are looking for and where people are moving to. 

Moving inland was rarely an interest for those city lovers. But after months in confinement during the Spanish State of Alarm, real estate agents have been receiving many enquiries regarding the move to larger properties with garden spaces.

With millions of Spanish residents being confined in small flats and realising the need for outside space, there has been a demand to plan to leave the city behind and begin the search for housing away from the city centre or even further inland. 

Bigger houses, common areas, large gardens and safe neighbourhoods are some of the top features people are requesting and on the property wish lists for many of those city lovers. 

People are focusing on comfort, safety and better features.

Malaga Is The Perfect Location 

Not only has there been an increase in property searches with Spanish residents but Spain is one of the most popular countries that foreigners are considering moving to

People are trying to liberate themselves from their hectic city lives to appreciate a more calmer life, especially now that people can work remotely. 

What Types Of Properties Are People Looking For?

The majority are looking for properties with more space in rural areas, but also the type of properties that are being searched for.

Properties With Garden Space

Homes with a garden, terraces and in general more privacy has become a must have for many families.
