Spain is Still a Hot Spot for British Buyers Abroad

Share Article

Everybody has heard about the 'emerging markets' but purchasers looking for their dream home in the sun should not forget Spain, a tried and tested location which has gained a long-standing reputation when it comes to savvy property investment.

According to new research* Spain remains one of the top three property investment markets in the world for Britons buying holiday homes abroad with 34 per cent of the total 425,000 UK-owned second homes abroad.

Taylor Woodrow de España is encouraging house hunters in the search for their dream home in Spain to take advantage of up to 25% off 50 homes in celebration of the house builder's 50th birthday this year.

Victor Sague, sales and marketing director for Taylor Woodrow de España, said: "A combination of a good year round climate, quick and low cost flights from the UK, stunning beaches and scenery has kept Spain at the top of the charts, despite the continued competition from newer emerging markets such as the Far East.

"No other country can quite compete with what it has to offer and despite Spain's credibility taking a bit of a knock this year, people still keep holidaying here and they still keep buying property. Whether you're looking to live near the beach, on a golf course or be immersed in the 'real' Spain, there's bound to be a home for you. We have a fantastic selection of developments in various regions across Spain, and with up to a quarter off prices we're making buying a dream home in the sun even more affordable."

For purchasers looking to enjoy 325 days of sunshine a year on average, Lagunas del Sol in Rojales on the Costa Blanca is ideal. Currently available is a selection of stylish two and three bedroom town houses with a communal swimming pool and gardens priced from as little as £108,000**. The development is only 10 minutes from the beach and within easy reach of the international airport of El Altet (35 minutes away) and Alicante's capital. Rojales is also only 8km from the golden dunes and the wild beaches of Guardamar del Segura.

Taylor Woodrow de España is the only major UK house builder in Spain and has been building quality homes for 50 years. With a reputation for trust, the company provides a specialised service and dedicated team within the UK and Spain who can help and advise the homebuyers through the entire process of choosing, buying and setting into a new Spanish home, safe in the knowledge that everything about the purchase is legally above board.
