The Costa Blanca or the “White Coast” is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe and many villas on sale are quickly snapped up, as there are great value properties on the Costa Blanca. This 120 mile stretch of Mediterranean coastline lies within the Spanish province of Alicante. Tourists are attracted by the climate, sandy beaches and a tremendous variety of tourist destinations. It stretches from Denia in the north to Pilar de la Horadada in the south and includes such resorts as Alicante, Benidorm, and Javea. Local airports and a motorway that runs the length of the coast mean that the Costa Blanca is very accessible. It attracts large numbers of visitors, particularly from the UK and Germany.
The property market
Having visited the area many people have been tempted to invest in the Costa Blanca property market either for a change of lifestyle, a holiday home or a retirement villa. Many people have seen beyond the coastal strip and discovered the beauty of the countryside, hilltop villages and ancient towns such as Elche and Orihuela. The good thing about searching for a property here is that there are plenty of companies in the market that can guide you through the process. With the Spanish economy suffering in the last few years prices are also competitive. But just as buying in any country make sure you have people to guide you who understand the legal process, know the market and can speak the language.
Real Estate In Javea
Javea is a small town in the north of the Costa Blanca. It is situated roughly 100km in both directions between Alicante and Valencia airports and so is easily accessible for visitors. It is a very popular location for people from the UK to purchase, both as a holiday home or for somewhere for them to retire and there are some reasons for this. The cost villas in Javea is much lower than property prices in the UK. This means that people who are selling up to start a new life in Spain may be able to purchase a much more extensive property here than the one that they are selling back in the UK.
The lower prices also mean that if the property is being purchased as a holiday home, then it is still affordable for people who still own property in the UK. The cost of living is also much lower than is found in the UK. People who have retired are likely to find that their pension stretches a lot further in Javea and that they can enjoy a better quality of life. People who have purchased property as a holiday home will also be able to benefit themselves from this lower cost of living while they are using the property, but it may also help them to attract others who may want to rent their property while they are not using it, creating an additional source of income.
Whatever the circumstances of the people that are purchasing a property here, they will all benefit from the 300+ days of sunshine that this resort offers. The Costa Blanca is one of the healthiest areas in the world, and it may be particularly beneficial to people who suffer from illnesses that are made worse by cold weather.
