The Key Investment Fundamentals that Make Marbella a Prime Investment Opportunity
01 Jun 2014 - Now the Spanish property recession is over the question for most property investors is what investment opportunities are there available and why does Marbella offer a would be Investor better opportunities than other parts of Spain?
According to Nick Stuart Director of Spanish Hot Properties there are several reasons but the main investment fundamentals are the current cost of construction and cost of land mean existing property prices will have to rise. The reality is the true cost of construction is now 1500 to 2000 Euros per square meter and land prices haven’t fallen in line with property prices thus meaning to deliver any new property a developer will have to have a minimum sales price of 2500 Euros per square meter. When you compare that with the opportunities of the current market where you can buy at between 1000 and 1500 per square meter its clear to see that these property prices are very likely to increase in value said Nick.

According to Nick Stuart Managing Director of Spanish Hot Properties the likelihood is that the Architectural landscape and Costa del Sol will be changed forever but finding new projects in prime location areas will be very difficult indeed.
Firstly its great news that Investors are starting to come back into the market place and the fact they are proves beyond all doubt the recession is over for the international property market. Secondly they are entering the market because there just aren’t the properties that the Scandinavian’s, Belgium’s and Russians want to buy.

So Will Spanish Property Prices Rise in Costa del Sol in 2014
01 Dec 2013 - With the news that property prices rose 4.8% year on year in the Belearic Islands in the third quarter of this year the burning question is what regions can expect to see prices rise in 2014. Prices also rose in 3 other regions including the Comunidad de Madrid leaving the other 13 regions still showing price falls.
According to Spanish Hot Properties Market Analyst Simon Jones you can expect to see price rises in Marbella, prices to stop falling in Costa del Sol but prices still falling in Costa del Sol. Simon explained that Costa del Sol was in fact the Costa of the Malaga Province which is only one of 8 provinces in Andalucía and Andalucía as a whole still has major problems and it’s probably going to be 2015 before prices as a whole in Andalucía stop falling. However Malaga is a completely different animal with over 25% of property transactions being bought by overseas property buyers. This contrasts greatly with the national average for Spain of 6%. Also the vast majority of these buyers tend to buy in Costa del Sol and not inland. So for sure Costa del Sol prices will stop falling in 2014. - - More information

Brits Still Number One for Spanish Property Sale but for How Long
09 Nov 2013 - Back in the heady days of 2008 UK citizens made up 60% of all overseas property purchase in Spain. Brits are still the biggest individual group of international buyers in Spain but the number has gone down to 17% and the reality is the number is getting smaller all the time. So how long before the Brits are replaced by another country?
Nick Stuart Managing Director of Spanish Hot Properties believes that the UK will stay number one in the short term but it will never return to the heady heights of 2008. First we have to understand what we are talking about here in that the international property market makes up only 6% of the whole Spanish property market but in Malaga province that equates to 25% of the property market. So in reality UK citizens make up just 1% of the Spanish property market and 4.25% of Malaga property market. The difference is since 2008 is the advancement of other nationalities taking advantage of property bargains in Spain whilst UK and German buyers lack confidence in the market explained Nick.

Iconic 2014 New Construction comes to Costa del Sol
28 Oct 2013 - Further proof that the Spanish property recession is over is for the first time since the recession started developers are embarking on building Iconic new properties to meet the demand of Russian and Scandinavian property buyers.
There is no doubt these new projects are going to change the Marbella and Costa del Sol property landscape and market forever according to Nick Stuart Managing Director of Spanish Hot Properties whose website is in 7 different languages and who deal with over 15 nationalities on a  regular basis in the Marbella area. Scandinavian and Russian buyers are primarily looking for new, bright white and light properties with lots of glass with fabulous views but most importantly high quality design and facilities to match but are happy to pay a premium. This goes completely against the UK buyers who are searching for bargain properties and don’t perceive top quality to be value for money. However the Russian and Scandinavian buyers see things completely differently according to Nick. - - More information

Huge Demand for New Properties in Costa del Sol But at What Price
19 Oct 2013 - Proof that Costa del Sol and Marbella has come out of its property recession was further evidenced by the news that Taylor Wimpey recently sold out their new apartment project Los Arqueros Beach in the center of San Pedro de Alcantara with the last delivery dates as late as 2016. However will other developers be able to come to the market with such well-priced properties that fits the market’s needs?
According to Simon Jones market analyst for Spanish Hot Properties Investor Club there are many factors that make coming to the market at the right price very difficult. Without doubt the number one problem is buying the land or unfinished development at the right price to make a profit said Simon. Other factors are the increased costs in construction and adopting the new higher standard 2010 energy efficient building regulations as well as coming up with a project that suits your potential buyers needs Simon Also said. - - More information

Is the Time Right to Invest in Spanish Property in Marbella
12 Oct 2013 - With sales on the increase and most professional people believing that Marbella has hit the bottom the burning question for most Investors is now the right time to take advantage of the property market in Spain but specifically Marbella?
The answer to this question probably lies in what type of investor you are according to Spanish Hot Properties Managing Director. There is no doubt that if you are a serious investor with in excess of 3 Million Euros to invest 2013 has been the year to look and invest in real opportunities and the opportunities are huge. The realities are that it’s impossible to get any form of finance and with a huge demand for certain types of property the opportunities for investors to invest with minimal risks and make very high returns with a 12 to 48 month exit strategy is huge. Some of the deals are investors have looking at and are financing have been superb for both parties said Nick

100 Pecent Finance Deals in Marbella Do They Really Exist
21 Sep 2013 - With investor clients looking for 100% finance deals and struggling to find them the obvious question is do they exist and if they do what criteria is needed to get approved for such Finance?
The reality for most purchases is that the level of financing will be of maximum of 60% of the purchase price according to Nick Stuart Managing Director of Spanish Hot Properties . Take Banco Sadabell, one of the few Spanish banks lending in this recession which has a criteria of lending 70% of the Purchase price. The reality is that the majority of loans are made at 60% for when it gets underwritten they discount what they will lend for many different things, single applicants for example. However this is where the best discounts are likely to come from distressed property resale’s said Nick.
