The destination beat other popular choices, France and Italy, when respondents between the ages of 45 and 64 year olds were asked about their desired location.

The article, Spain Still Reigns, published 29th July in This is Money, reveals that interest in purchasing a holiday home in the sunny European country is even higher now than before the economic crisis for future UK pensioners. The destination beat other popular choices, France and Italy, when respondents between the ages of 45 and 64 year olds were asked about their desired location. It was found that this age bracket would spend an average of almost £117,000 on a property overseas. It was also revealed that the majority of these would prefer to buy a property outright over taking out a mortgage.

Helping thousands of customers to retire hassle free abroad each year, Interdean offer a comprehensive set of services, including shipping, packing and storage- ideal for those looking to make the transition between homes. As such, the specialists have shared their thoughts on why so many make the decision to leave the British Isles behind in pursuit of a new life abroad.

“There are a number of reasons UK residents choose to live overseas when they retire. A more relaxed pace of life and warmer climates are two of the biggest reasons. With work commitments now behind them, it is often the first chance some people get to explore new surroundings. It doesn’t surprise us that Spain is still a popular location- not only is the weather better but it isn’t too far from home and those moving to Spain often find there isn’t too much of a culture shock.”
