The market has set the funds for a continuous growing

The second province of increased purchases by foreign citizens in Spain is Malaga, where the Costa del Sol is located with a total of 4,739 properties, only in the first quarter of 2014, and this is a recovery process that started from the 2012. increases were seen in both the number of purchases and the number of sales, which have increased by 28% and 2.2% respectively in the region. This trend is expected to continue in the coming years, mainly in shopping, while prices may continue rising but not at such a rapid pace.
The trend for price increases this year, is expected to continue according to 2015 where there were increases of up to 15% in the most demanding areas such as Madrid, Barcelona and Marbella, mainly in the areas of greater luxury and exclusivity. By 2016, although it is expected that the trend is positive, the increase is not thought to be so abrupt, and it is estimated that this between 3% and 5%, however, may be higher in coastal areas such as the Malaga Coast, where you can produce up to 10% increase.
Malaga on the south Andalusia region over the past year there has been a slight increase in promoter activity, which is important because in the past three years had not started any new construction. However, the report notes that the initial supply of housing new construction in the regionhas fallen by 18.4% last year, from 18,485 to 16,508 units. Of the total housing new construction, 29.7% are unsold. A fact that “evidence a decline in stock on initial offer of 31.5% compared with the previous year.”

Foreign investment as a key to growth

The foreign buyer still found in the Spanish residential market a great investment opportunity, especially now with housing prices lower. This interest is even more tangible in areas such as the Costa del Sol, where foreign demand has registered an excellent performance last year according to the Report of the Residential Market of the Costa del Sol Golf, compared to a domestic demand stalled by the economic context , unemployment and difficulties in obtaining financing.
Statistics show that more and more buyers from outside Spain buy more floors to total transactions in the market, reaching record highs beat. Despite stabilizing prices, this trend has increased, and is that housing prices in this country are still very attractive especially in the coastal areas such as the Costa del Sol, for citizens from relatively stronger economies than ours.

The Spanish coast returns to dazzle the foreign buyer of a second home with his best claim. There is much activity of acquisition of new buildings, as well as buying opportunities existing homes. New turnkey apartments of one to three bedrooms and 800 meters from the beach chalets with ocean or mountain views, luxury homes that are a real bargain for a British, Belgian or German investor.
One indication that evidence the aggressive demand for housing by foreigners is that the supply of homes available in Marbella has been depleted and cranes reappear on the ground. Dozens of new projects have begun to develop since the beginning of the year and have been reactivated work halted at a rate of reasonable sales and marketing plan.
The growing demand is one of the reasons that energize gross profit for rental housing in the beach area, which is one of the key indicators of property value. Hence, the sale of houses to foreigners in this autonomous region is a great business opportunity, and if we consider that home buyers in Marbella, for example, are 70% foreigners.

Ease in obtaining credit

Among the causes attributed to the increase in real estate activity in the region according to Ignacio Acosta Sorge, is the fact that banks have made easier the process of obtaining credit, which in general terms to foreign buyers can get mortgages for 20 years interest rates up to 2.75%. This has aroused the interest of many buyers interested in Marbella and its surroundings were a while ago, but they have after the fall in prices during the housing crisis, and with these banking facilities, they determined to make the decision to buy a property in the region, which many real estate analysts, is considered as a safe investment.
After a month of moderate January signing mortgages to buy housing has accelerated its growth during February. Thus, the number of new mortgages constituted on homes registered in the records of the property stood at 24,887, 15.9% more than the same month of 2015, as reported by the National Statistics Institute (INE). In recent years, even with a weak economic recovery, it has not stopped since May 2014 hiring mortgage to buy a home maintain a positive trend, totaling 21 consecutive months of promotion.
The initial average interest rate for mortgage loans on residential property reached last February 3.31% compared with 3.35% a year earlier, while the average interest rate for total stood at farms 3.32%, with an average term of 22 years.
89.2% of mortgages last February used a variable rate, compared with 10.8% fixed rate. Euribor is the reference rate most used in constituting mortgages to variable interest, appearing in 93% of new contracts.

New projects in the door

Due to the growing real estate market in the region, new developments have their sights set on being built in Costa del Sol. An example of this is a series of luxury apartments to be built as close to the golf properties. The properties offered are modern, mostly two rooms, and prices are between 240,000 euros and 390,000 euros. They also have the advantage of being only 10 minutes from Puerto Banus and 5 minutes from San Pedro de Alcantara.
Wanda Star project is one of the most ambitious, and will be built at the initiative of the tycoon Wang Jianlin, who has seen great investment opportunities in the region, and therefore has made is choosing to build a tourist and hotel complex in south Andalusia.

How will behave real estate sector in 2016?

•    These are industry trends for 2016
•    Resale properties, the most sold and the 3 bedrooms, the star.
•    Foreign citizens will be the main buyers of second homes.
•    The general trend is the price stabilization.

The real estate markets ended 2015 with good data and understand that 2016 will be the year of stabilization after more than 8 years of crisis in Europe. Where do you walk the new year? And there are many who say that in economic terms 2016 will disappoint expectations. Will it happen the same with real estate?

We try to know how it will behave housing and brick in the new year. From sales data and market analysis, for this reason we have developed a Decalogue with industry trends for 2016.

The resale properties are the best sellers.

As a result of the reduction of surplus property due to the absence of new promotions, sales of previously owned homes are imposed on new construction.

The three bedrooms will remain the star

Especially when we talk about primary residence, the buyer opts for this type of housing because “the feeling of luxury begins with the space.”

Foreign citizens main buyers of second homes.

The interest of foreign public for vacation homes has been particularly striking during the crisis years and remains so today. 65% of second home properties sold in our country have foreign buyer. But if we talk about primary residence, 95% of buyers are national.

Increased funding: demand recovery. Increased access to credit financing favors, and has allowed us to estimate a 2016 rally number of homes sold that 15-20% compared to 2015 increases.

Stabilization price. The overall trend is stabilizing after years of declines, although there are still countries, those with the highest amount of stock, in which prices continue to drop. The price of land, one of the main indicators of recovery, growing in major urban centers.

Increased access to credit financing. Front the option of rent for the benefits that can be obtained in this regard, in Spain, for example, still preferring home purchase. It is possible that in the future the trend may change slightly to align with European trends.

The house, conceived as an investment. Buying homes remains part of the “philosophy of life” from Spanish to feel protected by the current legislation owner.

Cranes return to the cities. In 2015, the number of visas construction has grown by around 20% and it is expected that this positive trend with a large bag of potential buyers remains in 2016. In new housing demand could reach 80,000 to 85,000 homes and reset the figure could be around 70,000 to 75,000. In addition, housing will continue adding coast.

Promotion rising. Compared to the years before the housing crisis, in which building permits reached 750,000 visas, current figures revolve around 50,000 but is expected to continue rising figure is more building permits. We might get to speak of a total of 200,000 homes under construction a year in a short period of time.

Young people, the protagonists. The audience most affected has seen their access to housing in recent years due to the economic crisis have been young. It is they who now show greater interest in acquiring a property and will play a leading role in the sector in the future.
