  • Brits seeking the sun are buying once again

    BRITISH property buyers attracted by the warm, sunny climate and bargain deals are returning in numbers to purchase Spanish properties. In 2014, Spain witnessed a 19.3 per cent increase in the number of residential properties sold to foreign buyers – accounting for almost one out of every five houses sold – and British interest in the Spanish market is once again on the rise.

    Thanks to a favourable exchange rate and familiarity with the country, Brits purchased 5,014 homes in Spain in 2014, 1,053 more than they bought the previous year.

    According to the National Statistics Institute in Spain (INE), home sales rose by 2.2 per cent in 2014, indicating that 2015 could be another good year for the once-beleaguered Spanish property sector following the crash in 2008. Domestic demand is also on the up thanks in part to easier access to financing from the banks for Spanish buyers.

  • COSTA GEARS UP TO BREAK MORE RECORDS

    AFTER a record number of visitors last year, Costa del Sol tourism got off to a flying start in 2015, with this year looking even better.

    The latest figures from the National Statistics Institute (INE) show the number of hotel visitors in January, with Malaga Province registering a 10 per cent increase compared to the same month in 2014, with a total of 199,246 visits.

    Elias Bendodo, head of the Costa del Sol tourism board, said that this was the third highest amount ever registered in January and the increase was higher than in both Andalucia (9.6 per cent) and Spain as a whole (7.5 per cent). Of the total, 25,736 visitors chose to stay in Marbella, the town seeing a huge 30.14 per cent increase on January 2014.

    Tourism councilor Jose Luis Hernandez made the announcement that, while 8,624 of the visitors to Marbella was Spanish, 17,112 came from abroad. More hopeful signs ca me from hotel employment figures with a total of 7,322 people working at hotels within the province, 447 more than in January 2014.

  • More mortgage options available in Spain now

    More mortgage options available in Spain now

    A number of Spanish banks are offering ‘American-style’ mortgages in an effort to convince potential homebuyers to change their habits.

    According to property portal kyero.com, some banks in Spain are now offering fixed rate mortgages with repay-ment periods of up to 30 years as a result of the recent signs of recovery and a way of introducing change in a country where 90 per cent of the mortgages in force have variable interest rates.

    In January, Banco Sabadell began marketing a mortgage with a 3.95 per cent fixed interest rate over a period of 30 years, while Caixa Bank is offering mortgages with fixed interest rates of 2.5 per cent and 3 per cent over 10 years. According to Banco Sabadell’s director of retail banking, Albert Figueras: “With low interest rates and long-term loans, the expectations are that the Euribor will rise again in the future.” He added that a “fixed rate now benefits both the customer and the bank.”

    The website outlines that since 2008, the index of reference for most variable rate Spanish mortgages -the one year Euribor -has fallen from 5 per cent to 0.3 per cent. As a result, banks have lost much of the income obtained from the 13.8 million mortgages that were authorized during the real estate boom. Thirty-year mortgages are common in the US but the majority of Europeans choose variable interest rate loans or shorter fixed rate loans. Some other Spanish banks are reducing their variable mortgage interest rates in order to attract customers.

  • Borrowers are back

    Year ahead looks good for lending writes mortgage expert Tancrede de Pola in the first of a monthly series in Euro Weekly News.

    After seven years in the dark, the property market is finally awakening. Banks are lending again, mortgage rates are down and borrowers can at last see the light at the end of the tunnel. As the old adage goes: The time to act is now!”

    This January has – without a doubt – been the best January for borrowing since the economic crisis hit Spain in 2007. Long may that continue. I predict that 2015 will be a much stronger year for both lenders and borrowers.

    With a stabilizing property market and mortgage rates as low as 2.1%, the opportunity to borrow in Spain has not looked this good for a long time.

    Spain’s mortgage rates are now inline with the UK and France, between 2.1% and 3.5%. Compare that to this time last year when rates were as high as 5.5% – it’s clear to see things are moving in an encouraging direction. And the banks are at last looking to clients that would have previously been considered ‘unsafe’ or ‘risky’ to lend to, such as self-employed investors and non-Europeans.

    This is not to say that they are now taking risks. They are taking as little risk as they were last year, or the year before that with conservative loan-to-value mortgages. This is due to a recovering economy and – even more importantly – a more stable property market.

    A more stable property market leads to greater mortgage lending which leads to higher house prices, which leads to an even more stable property market, creating a virtuous circle.

    So, things are definitely looking up. Roll on the rest of the year!

  • Malaga is provincial capital with highest rise in property prices

    Property Valuation Company Tinsa has highlighted the rise in Malaga property prices against the continuing fall in other cities in Spain

    The latest announcement from Tinsa, based on the 200 000 valuations of old and new properties carried out by the com­pany in 2014 reflects the different speeds with which the property market is moving in Spain.
    In spite of the fact that property prices began to stabilize just over a year ago there are still areas with significant rises and others with substantial drops. Malaga city is in the former group while the prov­ince of Malaga is in the latter.

    Malaga was the provincial capi­tal with the highest rise in property prices, 4.7 per cent – in the last quar­ter of 2014 as compared with the same period in 2013. It is worth tak­ing into account, however, that prices in Malaga city have fallen 47.7 per cent from their highest levels. Only five other provincial capi­tals have registered higher property prices – Melilla, Placentia, Palma in Mallorca, Barcelona and Burgos.

    Malaga province has not fared so well. Property prices in the area fell by 2.9 per cent, according to Tinsa, though this is lower than the Andalusia and national averages, 5.6 per cent and 4.5 per cent respec­tively. Seven Spanish provinces had year on year falls in property prices of over 10 per cent.
