Latest Tinsa report reveals Spanish property market is all about the coast

Spain ,
  • 57% of coastal areas now building new housing
  • Costa del Sol and Costa Blanca are key areas of focus (Taylor Wimpey España)
  • Torrevieja, Orihuela and Mijas leading the way when it comes to construction

A new report from Tinsa has revealed a notable upsurge in building along the Spanish coastline. Some 57% of coastal areas are now constructing new homes, compared to 50% this time last year. Torrevieja, Orihuela and Mijas are leading the trend, with more licences approved in 2018 than any other area, excluding the provincial capitals.

Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España is one company that is busy constructing new homes in key coastal areas, with the Tinsa report reconfirming its faith in the long-term future of the Spanish second home market.

We’ve spent the first six months of this year ramping up our construction along the Spanish coastland, both on the mainland and the islands of Mallorca and Ibiza. Demand is strong from a wide range of nationalities for Spanish second homes that provide access to the country’s beautiful beaches and superb golf courses. The Costa del Sol, in particular, has an impressive offering when it comes to coastal areas that also offer outstanding golfing facilities.”

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España

Taylor Wimpey España highlights Grand View as one of the sites that capitalises on the current demand for golf and coastal properties. Located at La Cala Golf, at Mijas (one of the areas flagged up by Tinsa’s latest report), the development is ideal for golfers, while the coast is just 7 km away. The spacious homes come with generously proportioned outdoor areas, in the form of terraces and private solariums, while the site also boasts pretty landscaped gardens and a communal pool. Prices start at €282,000 plus VAT.

Over at Horizon Golf, also located at Mijas’ La Cala Golf, key-ready townhouses are available from €435,000 (with 10% VAT included), thanks to a summer offer in place until the end of July. The three-bedroom, two-bathroom homes come with luxury finishes, fully equipped kitchens and designer bathrooms, as well as an impressive combination of private outdoor space and communal gardens and swimming pools.

Sales of coastal homes rose by 3.5% during 2018, according to Tinsa, and Taylor Wimpey España is confident that 2019 will be equally positive.

“There’s a real buzz surrounding Spain’s coastal areas right now and the Tinsa report shows why. These are exciting property markets to be a part of, whether you’re building homes or buying them!”

Taylor Wimpey España reports rise in holidaymakers demanding more from their breaks

Taylor Wimpey España reports rise in holidaymakers demanding more from their breaks

Spain ,
  • Costa del Sol voted European golf destination 2019 (IAGTO)
  • Holidaymakers indulging their sporty side through tournaments and competitions
  • 30th anniversary celebrations at La Cala Golf Resort attracting keen interest

Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España reports that holidaymakers are now demanding more than the traditional combination of sun, sea and sangria from their Spanish breaks. A rise in interest in organised golf tours and other sporting events is driving many second home owners to combine a healthy dose of exercise with their more leisurely holiday pursuits.

Spanish second homes have long been popular with keen golfers, who like to fit in the odd round while they’re staying here. What we’re noticing now is that visitors are increasingly keen to take part in competitions and other events as well, whether golfing competitions in the Costa del Sol or cycle races such as the Mallorca 312. It’s a trend that we’re taking into account when it comes to the location and facilities of new sites that we build.” 

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España

For golfers, the Costa del Sol’s La Cala Golf Resort has plenty to offer this summer, with tournaments held at least weekly during July and August. In celebration of the resort’s 30th anniversary, Taylor Wimpey España is participating in a special event being held on 12 July, with a prize of a three-night golf trip to St Andrews, including visiting the historic golf club and playing on the Fairmont Kittocks and Eden courses.

Townhouses at Horizon Golf at La Cala Golf offer the ultimate second homes for those looking to enjoy regular golfing competitions as part of their holidays. Priced from €435,000 with the VAT included until 31 July, as part of a 10% off summer offer, the key ready homes provide panoramic views over golf course. With three bedrooms and two bathrooms, they are ideally sized for family breaks. The private, gated development includes gardens and communal pools and the nearest beach is just 7 km away, meaning that there’s plenty to do in addition to hitting the fairways.

The Costa del Sol is one of Europe’s most popular golfing destinations. Indeed, the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (the global organisation for the golf tourism industry) awarded it European golf destination of the year 2019 as a result of its outstanding facilities. The area is home to more than 70 courses in total, providing holidaymakers with a superb level of variety and choice.

For buyers on a budget, there’s plenty of choice at La Cala Golf Resort. Grand View, for example, is home to beautifully stylish apartments with views over the golf course and the mountains of Mijas. Prices start from €282,000 plus VAT and the homes are ready to move in to.

Those who aren’t watching the purse strings, meanwhile, are likely to be tempted by the spacious, front line golf properties of Natura. With living accommodation spread over three levels and luxury finishes throughout, the three-bedroom townhouses deliver unrivalled views, solariums measuring over 50 m2 and private gardens. Prices start from €465,000 plus VAT.

While the Costa del Sol has for years been a mecca for golf-loving second home owners, it is far from the only part of Spain to attract those who are keen to indulge their sporty side while on holiday. Mallorca is increasingly attracting holidaymakers on two wheels, with local tour operators and sporting events organisers reporting a 25% increase in cycling tourism during the first half of 2019.

The gruelling Mallorca 312 – so-named because that’s how many kilometres entrants have to ride – was a huge success in April, with cyclists enjoying the island’s stunning scenery while pushing the limits of their endurance. Less daunting cycle tours are available for holidaymakers who prefer a more relaxed pace of exploration.

“Mallorca is an exceptionally beautiful island and one that warrants a slow, meandering exploration with plenty of time to take in the scenery. It’s also got a fantastic range of terrains for cyclists who like a challenge, including some great mountain routes.”

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España

Close to the 2019 Mallorca 312 route, Blue Cove is a collection of homes overlooking the turquoise waters of the bay at Cala Lliteras. The bright, spacious homes provide spectacular views thanks to their frontline position, along with a communal pool exclusively for owners’ use. The properties are available from €270,000 and boast typical Mallorcan design. That means white walls for protection from the sun in the summer, shaded porches on which to enjoy meals and drinks with family and friends, split-level interiors that feature natural materials and ceramic tiles and pretty gardens. Perfect for those looking to relax in comfortable surroundings after a long day of exploring on two wheels!

Will new Emerald Greens Taylor Wimpey España site help holidaymakers relax faster?

Will new Emerald Greens Taylor Wimpey España site help holidaymakers relax faster?

Spain ,
  • Average British holidaymaker takes over 46 hours to relax while away (Tots to Travel)
  • Emerald Greens’ private cork tree meadow delivers instant serenity
  • San Roque Club setting provides ultimate homes for golfers

From the outstanding tapas, stunning baroque cathedral and flamenco dancers of Cadiz city, to the seemingly endless golden sands of the beaches along the southern and western borders of the province of the same name, Cadiz is one of southern Spain’s most exciting destinations.

Cadiz province is also home to some of Spain’s most attractive and challenging golf resorts and it is this combination of superb golfing facilities and proximity to beautiful beaches that has inspired leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España’s latest development.

Emerald Greens is located in Cadiz’s prestigious San Roque Club, providing buyers with an enviable combination of spectacular views of both the golf course and the sea. The two and three-bedroom homes will be built in three phases, with the first 24 homes already under construction. Each building of eight apartments delivers three storeys of accommodation: ground and first floor apartments, plus duplex penthouses, with underground parking and a storeroom included in the purchase price (which starts from €270,000 plus VAT).

The development features Taylor Wimpey España’s signature blend of stylish interiors, spacious outdoor areas and communal pools and gardens. Interiors are designed around open plan and ‘total living’ concepts, with spacious living areas and terraces integrating indoor and outdoor life seamlessly.

In addition to the golf course setting, Emerald Greens is surrounded by corn oak meadows, with 70% of the plot dedicated to a private meadow for residents’ enjoyment. Footpaths weave in between the trees, with benches dotted around for residents to rest in the shade when they want to pause in their exploration of the natural beauty all around them.

Launching a new development is always an exciting moment, but we’ve been particularly looking forward to sharing details of Emerald Greens. Not only is it the ultimate second home location for keen golfers, it also has some incredible beaches nearby and is at the heart of a wonderful, natural setting that delivers true serenity.”

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España

The value of Emerald Greens’ peaceful setting is not to be underestimated. A recent survey from Tots to Travel found that it takes 46 hours and 42 minutes for the average Briton to relax when they go on holiday. Given that the average holiday length for Britons travelling overseas has dropped fairly steadily (from 9.8 days in 2011 to 8.9 days in 2018), losing almost a quarter of your holiday before you are able to unwind seems like a terrible waste. Having instant access to a private meadow where modern life can just melt away is bound to help advance the relaxation process.

Relaxation is also top of the agenda at Taylor Wimpey España’s other Cadiz province site: Pier. This private gated community offers fabulous views over La Marina de Sotogrande. Apartments range from two to five bedrooms, with high-quality specifications, large terraces and underground parking and storage. Pier also features a select number of penthouses with private solariums. Communal pools and garden areas add to the luxurious site’s attractions.

With greenery and water all around them, it is only fitting that both Emerald Greens and Pier should respect the natural environment as far as possible. As such, Pier is supplied by thermal solar energy, while Emerald Greens; hot water is produced by solar panels, with an electric heater in place as a backup. Pier features thermal and acoustic insulation, with a natural ventilation system. Emerald Greens, meanwhile, boasts the most effective thermal and acoustic insulation available on the market.

“Building sustainably is a key part of our ethos and with each new development we seek to increase and enhance our already-strong environmental credentials. We’re delighted that both Pier and Emerald Greens have been awarded category B energy certificates as a result of these efforts.”

Taylor Wimpey España invests almost €100 million across three Spanish regions in 2019

Taylor Wimpey España invests almost €100 million across three Spanish regions in 2019

Spain ,
  • Mallorca and Ibiza investment totals €48.4 million
  • Canyamel Pins is latest island second home development on Mallorca
  • Costa del Sol and Costa Blanca also receiving considerable attention

Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España is on track to  invest €98.2 million in the first half of 2019, spread across its three main areas of activity: Mallorca/Ibiza, the Costa del Sol and the Costa Blanca. The expert residential housing developer has been building along the Spanish coast for 60 years. So far this year, the company has already launched four new Balearic Island sites, investing €48.4 million in second homes on Mallorca and Ibiza.

The latest development is Canyamel Pins, on Mallorca.  The new development is located in Capdepera, in the northeast of ​​the island. It follows the launch of Blue Cove, a complex of apartments and townhouses on the seafront in Cala Lliteras, Cala Vinyes Hills II, a selection of townhouses in Calviá and Sunset Ibiza, a residential apartment development on the seafront in Cala Gració, Ibiza.

Our first four Balearic developments this year have seen Taylor Wimpey España commit €48.4 million to the building of 140 new homes across Mallorca and Ibiza. Mallorca is one of our key areas, with strong demand from buyers seeking the ideal holiday home – one that combines the perfect location with quality, design and style.”

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España

Canyamel Pins is home to a selection of two- and three-bedroom apartments with two bathrooms.

Apartments win out over villas as Taylor Wimpey España launches new Canyamel Pins homes in Mallorca

Apartments win out over villas as Taylor Wimpey España launches new Canyamel Pins homes in Mallorca

Spain ,
  • Spain now accounts for 21% of European second home purchases (Savills)
  • Canyamel Pins becomes 4th launch of 2019 for Taylor Wimpey España
  • Growing demand for smaller, cheaper second homes since 2013 makes case for apartments over villas

Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España has revealed details of its latest development in Mallorca – Canyamel Pins. The announcement comes as Savills reports a range of factors that point to apartments increasingly becoming more appealing than villas when it comes to second home ownership.

Just 0.4 km from Canyamel beach and 0.6 km from the 18-hole, par-73 course at Canyamel Golf, Canyamel Pins offers a selection of two- and three-bedroom apartments set in beautiful landscaped grounds complete with communal pool. The Mediterranean design blends with contemporary architecture and impeccable finishes in order to deliver spacious, modern homes with large terraces that are ideal for making the most of Mallorca’s abundant sunshine. Prices start from €342,000 plus VAT.

It has already been a busy year for the Taylor Wimpey España team. When not launching new developments (Canyamel Pins is their fourth so far in 2019), the team have been scaling the mountains of Wales in order to raise money for charity. The Challenge 2019 event saw teams from across Taylor Wimpey compete, with the Spanish delegation coming first in the TRIAL group and raising €5,944 for two good causes: The Youth Adventure Trust in the UK and DEBRA in Spain. Overall, Taylor Wimpey raised £200,000 as a result of its Challenge 2019 events.

“We’re delighted to be launching another Mallorca development, as demand for second homes on the island maintains its momentum. Buyers are keen to experience the very best that Mallorca has to offer, from its superb beaches to its pristine golf courses. That’s why we’ve chosen the location of Canyamel Pins so carefully – so that buyers can enjoy everything at their fingertips.” 

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España

According to Savills’ Impacts: The Future of Global Real Estate report, smaller, cheaper properties have seen a notable increase in demand since 2013. The immediate aftermath of the global financial crisis saw capital-rich buyers focusing intently on prime locations and properties, but the easing of credit conditions over the following years has resulted in buyers looking at a wider range of more affordable locations and property types.

Apartments are particularly well suited to such buyers. Not only do they tend to be more affordable, but the upkeep costs are often lower, not to mention the hassle. Buying on a development where you can lock up and leave your second home and return to it weeks or even months later to find everything in perfect condition is often much more appealing than having to spend the first days of your holiday tackling a garden that has turned into a jungle during your absence.

Savills also points out Spain’s increasing importance as a destination for second home buyers. It now accounts for 21% of all second home sales within Europe, while back in 2011 the figure stood at just 11%. Buyers from Britain, Holland, Germany, Italy and Portugal (among others) all cited Spain as the top foreign destination for their next investment in response to the Savills survey.

“With Canyamel Pins, we’ve listened to what buyers want in property terms, as well as location terms. The apartments have been designed to offer a superb, relaxing holiday experience, from the layout of the rooms and terraces to the thermal and acoustic insulation. They will also work well for those buyers looking for second homes that combine affordability and convenience in a way that villa properties so often struggle to do. The result is, ultimately, more relaxing holidays – which is very much the point of owning a second home!”

Andalusia property sales up nearly 20% as buyers can’t get enough of the Costa del Sol

Andalusia property sales up nearly 20% as buyers can’t get enough of the Costa del Sol

Spain ,
  • Sales in Andalusia up 19.7% in year to March 2019 (INE)
  • Jet2 increasing UK-Spain flights by 10% this year
  • Appeal of traditional sunshine destinations remains strong (Taylor Wimpey España)

Property sales in Andalusia shot up by 19.7% in the year to March 2019, according to the latest figures from Spain’s National Statistics Institute (INE). It seems that buyers just can’t get enough of the sun-kissed coastline, which is home to perennial favourites such as the Costa del Sol.

Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España has been building holiday homes along the Spanish Mediterranean coast for the past 60 years and has a deep-rooted understanding of just what it is that keeps holidaymakers and second home buyers coming back for more.

There’s no single factor that makes the Costa del Sol so appealing – rather, it’s the way that the area blends so many charms into one overall package. The beautiful climate is of course a major draw, as are the area’s outstanding Blue Flag beaches and multiple golf courses. The charm of the local towns is another key factor, as is the fantastic cuisine. And all of it at some of the most affordable prices in Europe.”

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España

Spain was the only country to enjoy three entries into the Post Office Holiday Costs Barometer in 2019, which ranks the cheapest holiday destinations in Europe. Torremolinos, Benidorm and Alicante made it in at positions four, five and ten respectively.

Not only that, but areas such as the Costa del Sol enjoy easy access from a wide range of European countries, ensuring that second home owners can quickly and cost effectively reach their properties. In 2019, doing so will be even easier, thanks to Jet2’s planned 10% expansion over the course of the year. The additional routes and flights will see the airline offering eight million seats between the UK and Spain. It follows Jet2’s growth of 20% during 2018.

Interestingly, Jet2’s expansion will see 54.3% more seats offered out of season during 2019, meaning that second home owners will find it even easier to enjoy their holiday properties year-round. Savills states in its latest Impacts: The Future of Global Real Estate report that “Air routes continue to have a profound impact on where people want to go and where people want to buy.” As such, the Jet2 expansion is excellent news for Spain’s tourism industry as a whole, as well as for areas such as the Costa del Sol which will benefit from increased seat numbers.

“One of the other appeals of the Costa del Sol is the sheer variety of holiday home options available. Buyers can opt for key-ready homes for instant holiday gratification or buy off-plan and enjoy having an input into the design process of their new second home.”

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España

Taylor Wimpey España offers both key-ready properties and off plan options along the Costa del Sol. La Floresta Sur is an excellent example of the former. The key-ready homes are available from €222,000 plus VAT. Just 0.5 km from El Soto Golf Club and within easy reach of Elviria Beach, the apartments are ideal for buyers looking to purchase and enjoy their second home as soon as possible. Taylor Wimpey España’s Horizon Golf site, in La Cala Golf Resort and Botanic, in Benahavis, are both also available for buyers looking to enjoy their second homes this summer, offering panoramic views in tranquil areas.

For those who prefer to buy off-plan, the outstanding three-bedroom homes of the latest phase of Green Golf are ideal. The frontline golf townhouses with southwest-facing terraces are available from as little as €280,000 plus VAT. All of these sites also feature communal swimming pools and prettily landscaped grounds.

Taylor Wimpey España launches new show home amid golf tourism and house price boom

Taylor Wimpey España launches new show home amid golf tourism and house price boom

Spain ,
  • Spain accounts for ¼ of top 100 golf resorts in Continental Europe (Today’s Golfer)
  • Spanish/Portuguese played rounds up nearly 30% over winter season (Tee Times Golf Agency)
  • House prices along Mediterranean coast up 4.5% – more than any other region (Tinsa)

From golf tourism to house prices, Spain’s Mediterranean coast is looking particularly healthy at present. What better time, then, for leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España to launch its newest golf resort show home?

Green Golf at Estepona (Malaga) is ideally positioned to court the rise in interest in Spanish golf resorts. Today’s Golfer Magazine’s Top 100 Golf Resorts in Continental Europe 2018/19 included 25 Spanish destinations, meaning that Spain alone accounts for a quarter of the best courses across Continental Europe.

Meanwhile, Tee Times Golf Agency, which serves both Spain and Portugal, has reported a near-30% uptick in the number of rounds that clients played between the November 2017-February 2018 and November 2018-February 2019 periods.

That’s against a backdrop of tourism numbers in Spain rising by 3.7% in 2018, when almost 90 million people chose Spain for their holidays. Over the winter months (November 2018-March 2019), the Costa del Sol in particular saw tourism thrive, with 3.2 million visitors – the area’s best ever winter season, according to government figures. That number is expected to rise to 13 million travellers by the end of the summer season, which would represent an all-time high for the Costa del Sol.

Golf has always been an important element of Spain’s tourism offering. We have the ideal weather, incredible scenery and some simply outstanding courses. Add to that the charms of the coastline and the excellent cuisine and it’s clear to see why Spain’s golf resorts hold such strong and lasting appeal.”

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España

The Mediterranean coast is also thriving in terms of its housing market. Prices there rose by 4.5% in the year to April 2019 according to the latest data from Tinsa. That’s a greater increase than was seen in any other area of the country.

Within this booming area, Green Golf delivers high-specification homes to families looking to be at the heart of the golfing action. With panoramic views over the course at Estepona Golf and out to sea, the properties enjoy an incredibly picturesque setting. Natural light is maximised through their south/southwest positioning and sophisticated design.

The new Green Golf show home highlights the development’s superb credentials. The large, south-facing terrace is ideal for outdoor dining or general relaxation, while the interior is bright and spacious. A large communal pool and landscaped gardens complete the offering, making this the perfect option for happy holidays with family and friends. Prices start from €280,000 plus VAT.

“The Mediterranean coast has been a popular holiday destination for decades, with golf playing a major role in driving that. We’re delighted to be building on this history of success by presenting contemporary homes for holidaymakers looking to experience Spain’s unique brand of relaxation and enjoyment.”

  • Balearic tourism up 15.93% in February (IBESTAT)

The Balearic and Canary Islands are leading Spanish property price growth, with prices increasing at more than double the national average, according to the latest data from Tinsa. The IMIE General Index shows an annual rate of increase of 8.0% across the islands, compared to a national price rise of 3.9%.

“Spring heralds the start of the buying season in the Balearics, as it does in many other parts of Spain. On islands such as Mallorca and Ibiza, the property markets will be busy from now until the end of the summer. Foreign buyers play a significant role in these island markets as they vie with locals to find the perfect property in the perfect location.”

On the island of Ibiza, those seeking their ideal home (whether as a second home or a permanent residence), now have a superb new development to consider. Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España has just announced the launch of Sunset Ibiza – the company’s first development on the island since 2014.

Offering incredible views over the bay at Cala Gracio and Conillera island, Sunset Ibiza is an exclusive collection of two and three-bedroom apartments, priced from €410,500. Large private terraces and the communal pool and gardens are perfect for enjoying the spectacular sunsets for which the island is so well known. Internally, the light-filled apartments offer spacious, elegant island living, making this frontline development an extremely attractive option for those looking to enjoy the best of the Ibiza lifestyle.

“We are delighted to be building on Ibiza once again, having spent quite some time scouring the island for the perfect site. Sunset Ibiza will be a truly outstanding new frontline development, which maximises the very best elements of life on the island.”

The launch is well timed. Not only are property prices in the Balearics rising faster than anywhere else in Spain, visitor numbers are also up significantly. According to the latest figures from IBESTAT, tourism to the Balearic Islands was up by 15.93% in February 2019, compared with the same month in 2018. Whichever way you look at it, Ibiza is thriving, making now the ideal time for Taylor Wimpey España to announce the launch of its beautifully positioned new homes.
