Buying Off-Plan Properties at the Costa del Sol. More Information:

The end of the real estate crisis is particularly evident in the new construction activities in Marbella and the entire Costa del Sol. From villas to apartments everything is being rebuilt and the demand for new developments is very big. For the trend trend that many customers prefer modern, minimalist architecture of the traditional Mediterranean, leads to increased demand for modern apartments and villas, particularly in the area of ​​Marbella and Estepona.

This demand exceeds the current supply of new properties in modern style. If you are looking for a contemporary new development or villa in and around Marbella, you will have to deal with the interesting "off-plan properties". The purchase of a property which is still under construction or even only in the planning has a lot of advantages and only few disadvantages.


• You buy a property that meets the needs of modern lifestyle - design and materials meet the latest trends - bright materials, open ambience, large panoramic windows, contemporary design, etc.

• You still have the choice and can choose the best property for you in the residential complex.

• The new EU building regulation ensures a high quality standard. New buildings have a 10-year guarantee and the design and quality differences between the new apartments and the older apartments, is quite high.

• Since 70% of the purchase price is due on completion and transfer, you still have time to finance the property. In addition, the developer often offers, in cooperation with a bank, a mortgage for the buyers.

• There is no risk of purchasing off-plan today. All payments are secured by a bank with a bank guarantee for the buyer (is required by law). If, for some reason, the development is not terminated (which is actually impossible, as all apartments are sold before and the finance is secured), the buyer will be refunded by the bank for the paid amount + interest. So there is no risk. This is one of the reasons why off-plan properties have such high demand.


• You have to wait up to 16 months for your new property and you can not move in immediately.

• You need a certain imagination to imagine the finished apartment, or the finished house.

• Unfortunately, you can not wait for the purchase decision until the development will be completed, since all modern new buildings are sold out long before completion.

The explanation for this is that the demand for modern quality buildings is much higher than the supply. Because of the good weather (300 days of sunshine a year and the many golf courses etc), the demand from all over Europe is very high. At the Costa del Sol we have a agglomeration of buyers from Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Holland, England, Switzerland, Germany etc. So from all countries, where it is cold and people wants to stay in the sunny south. Therefore, the only way to buy a good quality apartment is to buy off-plan and you can not wait until the apartments are finished. This high demand also guarantees rising prices in the future, which is also very interesting for investors. In most cases, the prices for the newly built apartments have already risen by about 20% once finished.
