It is a fact that more people are buying property abroad than ever before and there are many reasons for this.
One pointer is that more people work from home, and this means they can enjoy life in a country with a lower cost of living, while retired couples wish to live in a warmer climate. Southern Spain is just one of the places that tick the boxes of many.
Here are some of the most sought-after areas in and around Marbella that you might like to add to your list.
The Golden Mile –
Perhaps the top stretch of real estate is the avenue that links Marbella town with Puerto Banùs. This is where you will find luxurious properties that are in the upper price range, and it is similar to Hollywood in that you might bump into a few celebs when hanging out on the Golden Mile.
The best estate agents in Marbella would probably have a few Golden Mile properties on their books and they would be happy to arrange a private viewing.
Sierra Blanca –
There are superb properties in a gated community with great views over the town. The villas here are very much sought-after and should one come on the market, it is usually snapped up. There are also some condo developments in this area, which are well-located to the town.
La Zagaleta –
The ultimate country club, the amazing 18-hole golf course is a major local attraction. There are luxury properties within the club grounds, although they are high-value homes and not easy to acquire.
Talk to a leading estate agent that covers the Marbella region and they might have a listing or two in La Zagaleta.
Los Monteros –
Located on the eastern side of Marbella, this is the place to find beachside properties located on large plots of land. This beautiful area is located between the golf course and the ocean and is a very desirable area to live in.
If you search with Google, you will find reputable estate agents based in and around Marbella and they would have listings on Los Monteros.
A very secluded and sought-after area, where all properties sit on large plots of land. For some, this is the ultimate location as you are not far from the town.
This is probably the quietest area outside Marbella. As you would expect, prices are high, and buying a home here would be a great investment, especially if you are looking to live there for 5-10 years.
Nueva Andalucia –
This would be the most accessible area in terms of price; also known as Golf Valley, thanks to the number of top golf courses within striking distance. Talk to one of the leading estate agents that service Marbella and they are bound to have properties in Nueva Andalucia at varying price ranges.
Start your quest by contacting Marbella estate agents. Once you find a suitable property, book a short stay and check out the house with a view to making an offer. Top properties are not on the market for long, as this is a prime residential area of the Costa Del Sol.
