10 reasons to buy property in Spain

1.  In times of political and economic instability (war, stock market crash, global pandemic, bank runs, high inflation, etc.), gold and real estate are king as traditionally they act as safe havens where savers shelter their money to weather the storm.

2. Staves off inflation. At a time when central banks have (irresponsibly) printed money to no end, vastly increasing the monetary mass which in turn has led to inflation spiralling out of control worldwide, real estate offers by contrast a placid solace to deposit your life savings. Savings sitting idly at a bank are devoured by rising inflation, losing value every year.

3. Tangible asset. Real estate is a tangible asset that you can touch, feel, and see any time of the day. This acts in sharp contrast to ethereal investments, such as crypto currencies and other intangible assets, which are really never under your control, hard to understand, and even harder to monitor.

4. Security. The laws in Spain offer property owners a solid legal framework which protects and upholds their rights as behoves a modern European democracy. In several regions of Spain (i.e. Madrid, Andalusia, Galicia, etc.) inheritance tax and wealth tax have been suppressed. These regions have also slashed property transfer tax and stamp duty on buying property.

5. Capital growth. It’s no secret that real estate always appreciates in the long run. Unlike other volatile investments (such as stocks, bonds, and mutual funds) which undergo huge fluctuations, real estate offers a constant and gradual increase of value over time. Property prices in Spain have risen by 16% over the last five years (and even by two digits year-on-year in some sought-after areas, such as large cities (i.e. Madrid, over 40%) and coastal areas (i.e. Marbella, 40%). You really don’t need to invest in Bitcoin to strike it rich, just stick to the basics.

6. Generates passive income. Rental yields in Spain have soared by two digits over the span of three years. Spain is the world’s second tourist destination creating a huge pentup demand for holiday accommodation. Investing in property, and collecting the rent, is indeed a (very) profitable business in Spain. For long-term rentals, you can expect a net yield of 5% a year; for holiday accommodations it’s over 10%. They don’t call them ‘landed’ gentry for nothing!

7. Equity leverage. Investing in real estate allows you to leverage your equity over time. In plain English, this means that if you finance a property with an investment loan, the amount of money you borrow will eventually be less than the value of the property once it appreciates over time. After some years, you can refinance and use some of the additional equity to invest further in other properties. This strategy is ideal for investors who want to play it safe and adopt a long-term investment strategy, building up a healthy property portfolio over time.

8. Source of cash flow. Rented properties generate a constant revenue stream for their owners. Landlords may use the collected rent to pay overheads and other property maintenance expenses - including monthly mortgage repayments! In a nutshell, a wellchosen property pays for itself!

9. Generous tax deductions. Unbeknownst to most people, Spain offers lenient tax allowances which in effect reduce a landlord’s tax bill by 70%, or more (applies only to EU residents). You can offset all property maintenance expenses, including your lawyer’s fees (to calculate the rental tax) and mortgage interests! Once deducted, property offers great returns on investment.

10. Strong dollar vs. weak euro. This advantage is unique to those investors holding US Dollars. Due to the lack-lustre and reactive performance of the ECB, the US Dollar has strongly appreciated against the Euro over the last months creating unique buying opportunities. In plain English, never before has Spanish property been cheaper and more appealing to savvy US Dollars holders. Not to mention that buying property opens the door to a coveted Golden Visa, which allows unfettered access to the Schengen Area (27 countries). When you combine soaring rental yields and capital growth, you reach the conclusion that Spanish real estate is delivering a safe two-digit return year on year.

Significant increase in housing construction in Javea in 2014

There was an increase in housing construction in the town of Javea, following an upward trend since 2011, as confirmed below by the Deputy Mayor of Javea, Oscar Antón, on the 31st January 2015.


The increase occurs significantly in 2014 to double the number of houses and the budget for the execution of requests for licences for major works. More importantly, nearly all the homes entail major urbanization of the plots with garden, terraces, barbecue and pool. The construction of these houses has not led to the creation of new roads but made use of existing plots, some fully urbanized and others which have the obligation to complete the development works that are presently missing to achieve the required conditions.
All other licences granted, which are reflected in the boost in the 2014 figures relate to additions and alterations to existing houses, usually due to the sale of such housing.
This increase in applications will cause an increase in construction and thus the economy, since construction is one of the major economic engines of our population and also will increase other economies such as maintenance, restoration, etc.

Javea Apartment

Javea is becoming the most desirable place to live in the Costa Blanca. People from the UK and Ireland are finding good value investment apartments in Javea. Why Javea? Its location is on the most easterly point of mainland Spain. It is called The Dawn of Spain, Amanecer in Spanish. The first rays of the sun, bathe Javea Cabo de la Nao and the Cape de San Antonio.

There is a new era of interest, that will see prices soar in the next few years. Promoters and developers are realising the full potential of the property market in Javea and prices are set to climb between 10% – 20% per annum. New complexes are selling 3 and 4 bedroom penthouses from 320.000 euros, plus i.v.a. or v.a.t. The Arenal in Javea is beginning to see the infrastructure of new roads. Street lightings and under ground cables for electricity and mains services are being install to make the way clear for easy access. New luxury apartments are going to be constructed here, priced from 595.000 euros for a 2 bedroom apartment and up to 950.000 euros for a 3 bedroom duplex, that’s expensive, is what people are saying. Nevertheless, the apartments in Javea are selling. The developers are aware of the trend of the purchasers needs in Javea and they are, Location, Quality and Price, in that order.

I remember back to 1995, talking with a Javea estate agent. He was telling me that the Javea town hall was taking building applications for over 2000 apartments in the next 5 years. Where will the buyers come from, he asked? Where is all money going to come from? Where will we all park? Apart from the last question, they have arrived, purchased, sold, reformed and resold. That was over 10 years ago, what has changed? The weather? No. The location? No. The prices? A big YES!

Javea Villa

Tosalet in Javea was, as the story was told to me , a pine covered hillside, purchased by Franco’s mistress. She started building a villa there in the sixties and oddly enough, had no problems seeking planning permissions from the local town hall.

Javea Villa

Large villas and generous plots are one of the main attractions of Tosalet. Views to the bay of Javea and pine covered hills make this area one of the best in Javea. The residential complex has its own garden rubbish collection every two days, security guards patrol the streets every few hours and there are security cameras.

Obviously, where there is money it will attract crime, but the local police, the guardia and people setting up neighbourhood watch schemes, minimise the risks.

Toscal is another popular area in Javea, its proximity to the Arenal beach and local shops and restaurants make it an ideal location to live all year round and it is excellent to rent a villa here during the holiday periods and throughout the winter, make sure that the property has heating as the winter nights in Javea do get cold, sometimes down to 6 degrees. During the day, we can enjoy warm sunshine and sit outside on Christmas day in 16 degrees, very pleasant. If you enjoy life you will enjoy Javea.

Javea Property, Balcon Al Mar

Balcon Al Mar is a district of Javea in Northern Costa Blanca. Many of the properties have sea views and close by is Cabo La Nao. This is the most easterly point of mainland Spain.

Javea property has always been more desirable to purchase than in other parts of Spain.

Balcon Al Mar

One of the reasons is the scenery. If you fly into Alicante airport the land scape is similar to that of a desert, dry and dusty and the cement and stone works add to the problem. But drive just 45 minutes north and the landscape changes, after an hours drive on th A7 take the turning off to Javea and you will be meet with green pine hills and valleys full with vines and almond trees.

Lemon and orange trees add sweet blossom scent to the clear air. El Montgo dominates the skyline north of Javea. Villas on the slopes of Montgo are surrounded by pine trees and palms. Driving south to Tosalet and up the hill to Costa Nova the views towards java’s bay are breath taking.

Balcon al Mar is an area very much in demand, because it has many villas with sea views. The little cove of Granadella is just a 5 minute drive to the south, still in Javea. It has small fishermans houses as you reach the cove and the clear water in the bay is ideal for scuba diving and snorkeling.

If you feel like a holiday, Javea is ideal for families and teenagers. Finding a villa to rent close to the Arenal beach is difficult and you will need a car to drive to the Arenal or the port areas. The best location for night life is the Arenal. An apartment within walking distance allows you to leave the car and walk to the restaurants and bars. Once you have been to Javea, you will want to return, many people purchase holiday homes and spend the winter months away from the cold northern European climate. Others leave the grey, dull and depressing UK behind for good and join many expats living the good life.
