Why you should buy an Estepona property while you still can

There are a lot of excellent places to retire, and a lot of good places to invest in property. But I believe that an Estepona property is one of the smartest investments you can make. That may come as a surprise to some people. You have probably never even heard of the small town of Estepona, and if you have you may know that it’s in Spain, and everyone knows how hard Spain was hit by the global financial recession of 2008. But you really must not underestimate the potential value and low risk of buying an Estepona property or two.

What makes Estepona property such a sure bet

Estepona is a small town with around 70,000 inhabitants in the south of Spain. As a relatively unknown retirement paradise, there is still a reasonable amount of Estepona property available to buy. That is, however, going to change in the coming years. The town itself is located on the Costa del Sol, south-west of Marbella. It is a charming area, with modern architecture and mixed with plenty of traditional Spanish and Mediterranean atmosphere. The Estopena property market had not yet fully taken off in the boom times before the recession, which means that it has not been over-developed in the same way that many other Spanish coastal towns have. Yet it is gradually becoming more of a retirement haven, for older people looking for a place to settle down. The number of pensioners and retirees is only going to increase. Older generations are beginning to buy up Estepona property to take advantage of:

  • The stunning sandy beaches;
  • The year-round warm weather and comfortable climate;
  • The easy transport links;
  • The low prices, both of Estepona property and of life in general.

As Estepona property begins to fall more and more into the ownership of north-European pensioners, it will become better known. You can be your life that Estepona will one day be as well known as the bigger towns and resorts along the coast among those looking to settle down in warmer climes. The town has some space to grow, but the Estepona property in the centre of town, and particularly the Estepona property on the beachfront, is absolutely sure too boom. Now is the time to get your in on the action before the best value properties have all been bought and you miss the boat.

How to find and purchase the right property on the Costa del Sol

There are of course plenty of agents willing to help you part with cash and not all of them may have your best interests at heart. However, I absolutely would not suggest trying to enter the rather intricate and complex Spanish property market on your own. That is why I recommend www.realista.com. They have experience in all areas of the Costa del Sol, including the Estepona property market. Their agents are experts in the local area and can help you to both find just the right property for you, and to help with the process which follows. And that is a process you should not underestimate! If you have never encountered Spanish bureaucracy you are in for a rollercoaster ride, but experienced guidance like that provided by Realista can make your journey to making your investment a lot smoother than it may otherwise be. Once you have purchased your Estepona property, it will just be a case of sitting back, using it for holidays for yourself or renting it out, and watching your investment grow year-on-year.
