The latest figures published by this Spanish property portal in the latter part of 2013 indicate that the Spanish property market is slowly picking up. Estate agents report more sales and interest from foreign buyers. While property prices have not risen to the point that you would notice, the increase in interest means that they are not falling either. In fact you can expect housing prices to rise slightly during 2014.
If you want to pick up a cheap property in Spain, now is the time to buy before the market gains more traction. However, you should be aware that if you are planning to move to Spain and work in the country, finding a job continues to be extremely difficult for many.
While some work is available in most of the busy tourist resorts such as Benidorm or Javea on the Costa Blanca or Marbella on the Costa Del Sol, this tends to be short-term and low paid.
How Do I Buy a Property In Javea?
If you want to buy property in Javea in Spain, now is a very good time. Prices are still incredibly low after the bottom dropped out of the property market in 2008/2009, but indicators are good and show the Spanish property market is now picking up albeit very slowly.
Like with most other things today, the best way to start your Spanish property search is online. You should have an idea of the area you would prefer to live in, as different regions of the country vary greatly – both in terms of temperature and lifestyle.
If you’re planning on working in the country you should look at living in one of the larger cities such as Barcelona or in a busy tourist town like Javea or Salou. Unless you can work remotely online, a rural village will not afford you working opportunities in Spain, but it might be ideal for retired couple who want peace and quiet and a very relaxed way of life.
You will find many websites that deal with Spanish property sales. However, always take care that you are dealing with a professional registered agency.
