A Place in the Sun
The popularity of this search brings to mind a common phrase in the Anglo-Saxon world: «a place in the sun».
This term, which also gives its name to a popular television series, refers to the search for a property in a country where you can enjoy the sun for most of the year.
This attraction to the sun and warm weather has been one of the keys to the success of the television program, which is now in its 19th season and has its own platform for home sales.
The series website offers an investment guide for those interested in investing in property in Spain. This guide includes information on property search, Spanish real estate laws and financing options. Everything you need to solve your doubts if you are going to buy a flat on the beach.
Buy a flat on the beach in Spain
Of course, it must be taken into account that the climate in Spain varies from one region to another. For this reason, when looking for a property, investors tend to opt for the eastern coastal regions of the country.
For example, the north of the Valencian Community is known for its mild climate in winter and its almost inexhaustible sunny days (something essential to buy a flat on the beach), with more than 300 sunny days a year.
This climate, together with an affordable cost of living and reasonable real estate prices, make Spain an extremely attractive country for foreign investors. This trend is reflected in the fact that countries like Slovenia, Belgium, the Netherlands and Poland, among others, are investing more and more in the Spanish real estate sector.
The newspaper 'The Wall Street Journal' has also reported an increase in the number of American investors in Spain. This growth has been attributed to several factors, including favorable changes in the dollar exchange rate, an increase in the number of flights between Spain and the United States, and the attraction to the "Spanish lifestyle."
Jaime Malet, leader of the United States Chamber of Commerce in Spain, known as AmChamSpain, has highlighted the importance of Spain on the world scene. According to Malet, Spain is not only on the board, but is in a position to dominate the game. It suggests that, to strengthen its position, the Iberian Peninsula needs to establish itself as a magnet for European and American capital.
The Moverdb.com study also highlights that the citizens of the North African coast are showing a growing interest in investing in property in Spain. Countries like Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya and Egypt are showing growing interest in the Spanish real estate market.
In summary, thanks to investment and international tourism, Spain received more than 17,000 million euros in 2022.
With its sunny climate, laid-back lifestyle and affordable real estate prices, it's no wonder Spain has become a favorite destination for international property investors to buy a beachfront apartment.
