Discover Andalusia's True Potential

The real estate market has progressively become stable and, nowadays, it is once again one of the engines of the Spanish economy. In fact, the pace of property sales continues to rise. The recovery has also affected the prices of all types of properties as they are gradually adjusting better to the reality of the market. 

At Engel & Völkers, we would like to inform you about the benefits of opening one of our franchises. Areas such as Andalusia, where a high percentage of luxury tourism in the country is concentrated on, are a fertile ground for you to have your own real estate shop and to achieve the best results. 

To highlight various other locations, we would like to mention Malaga, the shining star, and Marbella, the former fishing town that remains the epicentre of everything that happens on the Costa del Sol. Estepona, with its elegance and unique microclimate, continues to gain ground to become a city for those seeking quality services. The same happens in the urbanisation of Sotogrande, a haven of peace where celebrities from all over the world come to take a break from a year of hard work.

However special these coastal resorts are, we can not forget two cities that play a vital role in the culture and character of the Andalusians: Seville and Cordoba. The Andalusian capital does not stop being a rare gem next to Guadalquivir and an open-air museum. The northern mountain in this province is ideal for finding mansions, properties and other real estate assets where you can experience a different side to Andalusia; perhaps not as well known, but just as interesting.

Cordoba, distant and welcoming, intoxicates the visitor with its touristic charms. Just like in the previous case, the areas that are surrounded by nature are perfect for rural houses, farmhouses and all kinds of uniquely designed homes. Winters attract many property buyers who do not want to miss even the most intense cultural activity that the city offers throughout the summer.

It is important to mention that in 2017, the price growth of residential properties in Andalusia reached 4.1%. It is estimated that in 2018 it will reach 6%. As far as sales are concerned, Málaga was the fourth province in Spain where the most properties were sold. Analysing the profile of the type of buyer in Marbella we can conclude that about 27% is British, 11% Swedish, 7% Belgian and 4.76% French, so the area's attraction in terms of real estate is assured at a European level. 

These figures are repeated throughout the Autonomous Community although on the same common denominator: there is a huge demand for real estate professionals in the sector. With the help of Engel & Völkers, you will achieve the best results thanks to our ongoing support and the quality services we offer to the customer. Opening one of our franchises in Andalusia will be the beginning of a new stage in your professional life.

Property on offer in Spain

In recent years, the Spanish property market has become a sector particularly valued by international investors, and it's no surprise. Between 2009 and 2014, property prices in Spain underwent notable changes, and as a result properties are currently being sold at very competitive prices. This situation applies to houses both for sale and to let, as well as to more luxurious properties, making Spain a practically unique case in Europe. The best investment possibilities can be found in Spain's high-end properties.

The high-end sector is the most interesting to the international investor. Many people the world over consider property in Spain, especially in the larger cities, to be some of the best patrimonial assets in Europe (a good example would be a luxury attic in Madrid or Barcelona). And as for the exclusively residential market, those who wish to have a second home in Spain, or buy a main house can also benefit from this situation. Logically, all of these benefits also reach the proprietors who wish to sell their houses.

Living and working in Spain

The quality of life enjoyed in Spain is the result of a unique combination of climatic, geographic, and of course, human factors. Living in Spain is an option that is contemplated by more foreigners every day, and buying a house is the first step towards that. Acclimatisation tends to be fast, and those who move in with the objective of developing business ventures can also count on easier administration when buying a house. Spain's high quality property market paves the way forward.

The type of property which one moves into in Spain will obviously depend on the newcomer's aspirations. Those who head to Spain, whether to live or to work, can enjoy the wonderful surroundings, either in an apartment with a view (of the beach, mountains or the city) or in a house right on the coast. For more information, it can be very useful to seek the advice of an estate agent in Spain, who will analyse the most interesting offers based on the prospective buyer's criteria.

Selling your house in Spain

Selling your house is another option for foreigners who live in Spain. Whether you are coming to the end of your stay in Spain or you just want to get rid of one asset in particular, the services of a reliable and trustworthy Spanish estate agent are essential. These professionals will examine the qualities of the villas in Spain that they want to commercialise, reaching the most advantageous sales agreements possible and getting the luxury properties in question on the market. Little wonder: if anything indicates the current context of the market it's that the role of the agent is basically to close a good sales agreement.

How to arrive in and travel through Spain

Alongside the properties that Spain has available, the country also offers areas of great patrimonial and natural interest. It's worth highlighting the excellent connections by land, sea and air to all the European capitals such as London, Paris, Berlin, Rome, Brussels, and Geneva, and many other European cities are less than a three-hour journey from the main Spanish airports. Those who travel to Spain have airports at their disposal not only in the main cities but also in the majority of the provinces. Another alternative to get around the country is via the complete train network that, on a smaller scale, consists of commuter trains to the inland regions, creating easy access to almost any town and property in Spain.
