FEBRUARY 2015 - HOT SPANISH PROPERTY NEWS AND VIEWS FROM CHERSUN
The Hot Property News As The New Year Attracts More Buyers Than Ever
Welcome to this months property news from Chersun. First of all apologies for the late edition this month as this was due to a record amount of viewing trips in February.
The property market here in the Costa Blanca and Costa Calida regions has started really well with record sales and with more enquiries coming into Chersun each day. The majority of enquiries are from interested British buyers which is very encouraging as this market has been so quiet for the previous 3 - 4 years.
With the exchange rate at more favourable terms this is enticing the British clients to enter back into the Spanish property market. The majority of buyers are purchasing as a lifestyle investment and this has been emphasised by the feedback from buyers who are now enjoying the superb climate, food, drink and activities that are available in the Costa Blanca and Costa Calida.
We hope that you enjoy this months newletter and do not hesitate to contact us for more information or if you have any queries about the Spanish property market.

Spanish House Prices Starting To Rise
The demand for housing in Spain will pick up again in 2015, with an increase in transactions of 15%, which will raise real estate prices by an average of 1.5%, and by up to 5% more in 2016, according to the bi-annual report on the real estate market in Spain prepared by Bankinter.
The financial institution states that, given the diversity of the Spanish property market, prices in the majority of the provincial capitals and in the towns away from the large cities will remain stable or could even fall slightly in the coming months, while in the prime zones of the big cities and the most popular tourist areas, prices could register increases in excess of 3% in 2015 and 5% in 2016.
Bankinter explains that this improved forecast for the real estate sector is due to the country's economic recovery - GDP growth of 2.2% estimated for this year - which they feel will lead to a better work environment, an increase in confidence and greater access to funding. However, they warn that they do not foresee the recovery of the sector being either fast enough or significant enough to bring it back to a situation similar to what it was before the crisis, with regard to both transactions and the price increases.
El Mundo reported that, with regard to demand, Bankinter expects that this will increase to 400,000 homes in 2015 and up to 450,000 in 2016. A significant part of this growth in demand will be driven by a recovery in sales of new housing and continuing foreign demand.
We have seen 4 major developers in our area increase prices of their new properties by between 5% -10%, in the last month, and if you to want to take advantage of the prices now before further increases act sooner rather than later.

Buying a property in Spain is an exciting and pleasant experience if your selected Spanish Estate Agent provides you with the five services below making the transaction enjoyable and stress free.
1. The Agent should listen to your property criteria and budget so that you are not wasting your time viewing properties that are of no interest to you.
2. It is always important to have a good Spanish lawyer that the Agent can recommend, they will take the stress away from you by ensuring that the property is legal and that it has no debts against the property.
3.The Agent can provide you with reputable companies for furniture, tradespeople and any other services that you may require. It is always better to get recommendations to ensure you do not hire a cowboy.
