Taylor Wimpey España’s most recent data reveals that German buyers are returning to Spain at an increasing rate.
Overall, total sales by German buyers in 2016 increased by 40% compared to the previous year.
Geographically, the hotspot for German buyers was the Balearic Isle of Mallorca where 93% of all sales were completed.
“We definitely experienced a significant increase in enquiries and indeed sales from German buyers in 2016. Mallorca has always been a popular holiday destination with German tourists and as the island’s property market expands in order to accommodate the growing demand from prospective holiday home owners, it is German buyers who are leading the sales.”
Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director, Taylor Wimpey España
In response to this rising demand, Taylor Wimpey España has launched a brand-new free phone helpline for those residing in Germany. Prospective buyers will be able to call 0800 511 1551 to discuss the property options available to them.
With 300 days of sunshine every year, the advantages of the Mallorcan coastline being protected from overdevelopment and over 20 golf courses to enjoy, it is no wonder the German’s are rushing to buy a holiday home.
