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!
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.
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.
I recently visited Moraira to enjoy a coffee in a seafront cafe, in the El Portet area of Moraira. It is a magical bay, surrounded by villas and small apartments, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and sheltered from the north winds.
As apartments are built in Javea and Moraira, usually almost 100% of the property is sold before the complex is finished. Why is this? Typically the property purchasers are from Madrid or Northern Europe. Those from Madrid may be attracted by the property prices, always lower than the property prices in the city of Madrid. Also they can holiday in their new homes by the sea, escape the heat of the summer months in the city and enjoy the refreshing sea breezes, the beautiful surrounding scenery and the Mediterranean lifestyle.
Property purchasers from the UK and other northern European countries are attracted by the off plan property prices offered by the constructors. The other benefit is of course the summer holiday rental period, which can provide an extra income to help to pay for their property investments. Javea has seen over 2000 apartments built in the last 10 years. Each year more and more people visit the area and then decide to return and live here all year round.
It is a real pleasure to see young families arriving to live in Spain, wishing to improve their lives and escape from their mundane jobs, high mortgages and the dull weather. They have decided to live their dream and start a new life in the Mediterranean sun. Be careful though, as many have to return to the UK because of lower wages and private school fees. Eating out in Javea and Moraira is cheaper than in the UK, so you tend to eat out more often. So do your sums well. It’s easier to spend money than to earn it, anywhere in the world.
Moraira has fewer new apartments, due to the scarcity of land along the Moraira coastline. Javea in turn has more land available to build new property and apartments. Therefore the property prices of apartments in Moraira are a lot higher. New builds are costing up to 4,000 euros per square metre in Moraira, while in Javea prices for new apartments start at 2,200 euros per square metre.
I visited a fantastic property in Moraira, an apartment. The property owners have invested a lot of time and well spent money on reforming a three bedroom apartment in an older complex. The transformation was brilliant. No expense was spared on the property, new fittings, kitchen units, floor tiling, new electrics and even creating an extra shower room in an area which was originally part of the entrance hall.
Every area in the property has been finished to a high standard, the floors, walls, marble worktops in the kitchen, new doors. It also has hot and cold air conditioning. The property refurbishment was one of the best that I have seen. Well done to the owners! And good luck to the future Moraira property purchasers, as they will be delighted with their new 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment in Moraira, just a 5 minute stroll to the old town and the beach. Alternatively, there is a large pool on the 5th floor, if you fancy a dip, just metres from this fantastic apartment!.
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.
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.
In the last 17 years I have visited hundreds of properties in Negative press always sells newspapers, that is why the average people buying a Spanish property beleive that they can offer 30 – 40% off the price that is asked. This may be true in other parts of Spain, but not here in Javea and Moraira.
Javea, Moraira do not have hundreds upon hundreds of new builds to sell. Most of the promotion and developers build just a few new villas in lovely areas with 20% green zones.
New apartment complex’s have a height limit of two floors and
aticos. No more than 30 apartments are built on each new project. These are normally purchased off plan by families from Madrid or Valencia, then the over seas buyers.
So there is not a huge amount of un sold properties in Javea or Moraira.
Bank repo’s are not that many in this area, look at the areas where there are hundreds and that is where you will find the town halls and developers have been silly for the past 10 years, a long with the greedy bank directors.
Keep your Javea property clean and tidy, free of nasty odors and ask a sensible price. Good luck because if the price is right, you will sell in Javea and Moraira.
Come for a holiday – Stay a lifetime!
