The Costa del Sol property market has always offered an excellent choice of both newly built and existing ‘resale’ homes, but in recent years demand has been strongest for new, off-plan apartments and also villas and semi-detached homes featuring the latest architectural styles and filled with high-tech gadgetry such as home automation and entertainment systems. This has led to a broad offering of such homes also in the Sotogrande area, especially in such spots as La Reserva de Sotogrande. But now there are signs that the ever-popular resale market is coming back in force.
The advantages of modern homes are obvious, as they tap into the styles and needs of a new era, but resale properties have definite benefits too, and this is what is driving their revived market share and popularity among buyers.
Firstly, resales homes are better priced, especially in €/m2 terms, giving you more home—and garden—for your money. This also equates to more rooms and a more varied layout. But while people are once again more open to Mediterranean architectural styling they still want the latest comforts, so most in demand are existing properties that can quite easily be modernised and/or renovated.
Key in this is that the price differential with newly built homes should give the buyer the financial space to upgrade the home as required—so the more work it needs, the cheaper it should be. Many homeowners who wish to sell their property are realising this and adjusting their asking prices accordingly. This in turn is driving the growing demand for apartments, townhouses and especially villas in Sotogrande that can easily be adapted to today’s technical and comfort standards, as well modern interior décor and open-plan living, while also offering Mediterranean charm, refinement, space, character and individuality, not least in their exterior look and interior distribution.
