It’s one week until Jose Blanco, Spain’s Minister for Public Works begins his 5 nation tour to promote property investment in Spain. London will be the first step on Blanco’s ‘property roadshow’ where he will be spreading the message that it’s economical, safe and sensible to invest in Spanish property right now.
The beginning of the roadshow has proved to be very timely as recent reports indicate that there has been an increase in people looking for property abroad. One recent survey showed that 56% of those looking for property at the moment are looking overseas with countries like Spain and Turkey ranking highly. Industry experts are reporting increased interest and more enquires for property in Spain across the board. Not only has interest in Spanish property spiked, but actual property transactions are increasing as well.
One property type that is becoming very popular is Golf property which investors have been keen to buy given the value on offer and ease of renting this kind of property on the holiday let market. One local industry professional said
“Without doubt in a holiday home destination such as Spain, properties on golf resorts offer more for the buyer,”
You tend to find a greater range and quality of facilities such as the club house, restaurants, shops and leisure amenities and of course the golf courses themselves.”
