Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España has reported a 125% jump in British buyer numbers, as the uncertainty around the UK’s departure from the EU has finally turned into action. Brits were the top buyer nationality in both December 2019 and January 2020, with total growth across the two months standing at 125%.

Almost all British buyers during that period were focused on properties in the Costa del Sol. It’s one of three areas that the Taylor Wimpey España team has flagged up as Spanish summer hotspots this year. Of particular interest is the prestigious La Cala Golf resort, where holidaymakers and second home buyers can enjoy a wide range of luxurious facilities, including tennis, football and spa facilities, top end dining experiences and three superb championship golf courses.

Some of the best homes for enjoying the stunning views that stretch out over the fairways and rolling countryside to the distant mountains are the key-ready apartments at Grand View. Available from €265,000 + VAT, the two- and three-bedroom homes enjoy both a beautiful setting and high-end fixtures and fittings. They offer ample outdoor space in the form of terraces, while communal facilities include landscaped gardens and a large communal pool.

The British love of the Costa del Sol dates back decades. While the drawn-out Brexit process caused many buyers to pause they are now pushing ahead with their plans and buying Spanish second homes at an impressive pace. With a range of styles and price points available, the Costa del Sol is perfectly positioned to meet varying needs as sales pick up speed during 2020.”

British interest in the Costa del Sol is mirrored by buyers from Spain itself and from other countries. According to the Colegio de Registradores, there were more sales in Andalusia in Q3 2019 than in any other Spanish region. Andalusia accounted for 19.55% of total property sales, with Catalonia coming second with 16.41%. New homes in Andalusia proved particularly popular during the quarter, rising by 5.85% compared to a year earlier.

The Costa Blanca – over 200 km of sun-kissed coastline – is another of Taylor Wimpey España’s summer 2020 hotspots. At Elche in Alicante, smart, three-bedroom townhouses with a communal pool and private terraces and solariums are priced from €179,000 + VAT at Kiruna Residencial.

Over in Mallorca, Taylor Wimpey España has flagged up the area near Pollensa, which has recently been added to the official list of Spain’s “Most Beautiful Villages.” At the foot of the Tramuntana Mountains, Pollensa has an historic centre packed with medieval character that cannot fail to charm. Within an hour’s drive of the village are a range of golf courses and some stunning beaches with crystal clear waters, along with a wide variety of second homes for buyers to choose from. Mallorca also benefits from a regular schedule of well-priced flights from the UK.

At Canyamel Pins in Capdepera (less than an hour from Pollensa), the two- and three-bedroom apartments include large terraces surrounded by pleasant communal gardens. The lovely pool provides the ideal way to cool off during the long, hot summer months, while the location is just beautiful. The homes are just a few minutes’ walk from the beach at Canyamel, as well as the popular Canyamel Golf Course.

“It’s that time of year when many British families are planning and looking forward to their summer holidays. For those buying a holiday home, it’s an incredibly exciting time, with some superb locations offering sun, sand sporting facilities to suit every taste and budget.”
