Spain has always been a popular destination for expats moving abroad or purchasing a second home. The figures unsurprisingly reflect this and as time progresses Interdean hopes to help even more families move overseas

According to the World Property Channel, foreign buyers account for 12 per cent of total home sales in Spain in 2012, with the number of foreign buyers in Spain growing by 26 per cent in 2012 alone, making the annual volume rise by 64 per cent since 2009. The figures detail the rise of ‘climate migrants’ who obtain properties in countries that have better weather compared to their homeland. This is also a trend in various Mediterranean countries including France, Italy and Portugal as people purchase second homes for retirement or for holidays in search of better weather. This ongoing trend has shown that many expats from the UK purchasing properties in Europe are in search of warmer climates, a more relaxed way of life and a holiday home for the family. The news is met with delight from Interdean, one of the Europe’s most established moving companies. The firm has been helping families and expats move abroad since 1959 and has built a foundation of trust, knowledge and understanding in moving people overseas.
