More good figures have been reported about the property market in Marbella. A few weeks ago we already wrote about the rise of construction licenses issued. Now, local newspaper SUR has reported that government statistics are showing a rise of 12.7 percent in property sales in Malaga in July, compared with sales in the same month last year.
The figures are defying house sales figures in the rest of Spain, where sales fell by five percent in July, despite having been positive before that. It shows that property in the Costa del Sol is still one of the most popular choices for many buyers, especially for foreigners who are eager to buy their dream holiday homes. This also shows in the statistics: foreign buyers turn out to have made up 37 percent of home buyers in the first six months of 2013 in Malaga. Especially British and German people enjoy the sandy beaches of the Malaga province, but more and more Russian and Chinese people are also discovering the good life in this area, too.
