How to Own Your Dream Home in Spain
|Every year hundreds of thousands of foreign visitors travel to Spain to delight in the fantastic weather, stunning natural landscapes, excellent entertainment options and superb Mediterranean beaches. Many of these people dream of one day owning their own property in Spain, in fact Spain is now one of the most desirable second home and retirement destinations in the world.
In the 1960s Spain underwent something of a building boom and earned itself a reputation for building unsympathetically for the natural environment. Since then massive effort has been placed in redressing the balance, fixing the architectural problems and recreating the face of Spain particularly along the coastal regions known as the Costas.
The most famous Costa is the Costa del Sol and one of the most beautiful towns in this region is Benalmadena. This town is as famous for its stunning natural beauty as it is for the wealth of amenities and opportunities it offers both residents and visitors. It is also an excellent example of how Spanish property developers and town planners have saved Spain from architectural decline!
The town of Benalmadena on the Costa del Sol is home to some incredible and luxury properties that boast everything from swimming pools and tennis courts, to direct golf course access and access to the water parks and theme parks of Benalmadena.
The town is one of the most desirable on the Costa del Sol, the Costa del Sol is the most desirable area of Spain for property, therefore anyone who purchases a home in the town will be purchasing themselves a fantastic investment opportunity as well as a dream home in Spain.
Because of the strength, stability and security of the Spanish property market it is a relatively straight forward process to raise a mortgage or finance to afford to purchase a home in Spain. Obviously terms and conditions will depend on a purchaserís individual financial circumstances, but some international mortgage lenders are prepared to consider future rental income from the letting of a property as income on which they can base the amount they will lend you.
If you dream of owning a dream home in Spain you could consider buying now, letting the property for part of the year to cover your mortgage commitments and benefiting in person for the weeks of the year when you usually holiday abroad.
If you were to purchase property in Benalmadena on the Costa del Sol for example, you would be buying into one of the most desirable areas of Spain for holiday lets and purchasing yourself possibly one of the best returning investment vehicles in property terms globally.
On the one hand the area benefits from a wealth of golf courses, entertainment parks, perfect beaches and direct access to Malaga airport for international accessibility making it simple to rent your property for top dollar weekly returns all year. On the other hand the areaís attraction means properties available will become scarcer and as demand surges and supply diminishes the value of your property will soar!
A true win win situation!
