Most viewed new developments on the Costa del Sol

Today I’m indulging in another recap of the year by bringing you the 5 most viewed new developments on the Costa del Sol in 2019. There’s a great mix of locations and deals to be had in there, so read on to find out which ones were the most popular.

As I mentioned in my last post, buying off-plan or in a brand-new residential community is back in vogue. There is visibly a lot of construction activity going on here on the Costa del Sol and new projects are completed and delivered on a near-monthly basis.

Optimal consumer confidence

Now that Spain’s economy has stabilised and is now enjoying a phase of significant growth, buyer confidence in the new development market has also increased. Would-be new home purchasers – especially foreigners, who would perhaps be warier of parting with their money for an investment abroad – see buying a property for first occupation as a viable, and in many cases preferable, alternative to acquiring a second-hand property.

And the proof of the pudding, as they say, is in the eating.

Although the new build sector accounts for around 17% of the total sales in Málaga province – the rest are used, or second-hand, properties – these projects have gradually grown in popularity over the last couple of years. For more on this, check out this related post:

This development has had a lot of attention in 2019 for many reasons. One of them is the perfect combination of golf, beach and amenities on the doorstep for enjoying your life - or even just holiday time - down in southern Spain. This attractive front line golf complex is situated within 5 minutes of the nearest beach, Estepona marina and all amenities including shops, restaurants and supermarkets.

Another draw is the fact that it's already built, so you can just pick up the keys and start enjoying your new life on the "Costa del Golf". And then there's the price. If that doesn't do it for you, I don't know what will...

VIVA website users loved this recently-finished townhouse development in Calahonda in 2019 because of the high quality construction of these spacious three-bedroom homes, extraordinary communal facilities and unbeatable location. The plot occupies several thousand square metres, of which a large chunk is dedicated to landscaped gardens, a huge communal pool, sun deck and large community gym.

All 48 contemporary, four-storey homes have their own private gardens (as above) facing inwards towards the central community pool area, meaning they provide a perfect and safe environment for families with children or simply those that love to entertain guests.

If these high quality homes, located less than half an hour's drive from Málaga international airport, are what you're looking for, get in touch with us today for the latest ability.

Alhaurín el Grande has long been an attractive alternative to living on the coast for foreign homebuyers. It's only 15 minutes from Fuengirola and 20 minutes from its sandy beaches, per-square-metre house prices tend to be lower, there is some wonderful scenery and golf lovers are catered for by some excellent courses, too.

It comes as no surprise, then, that this economically-priced development in the well-established community of Alhaurín Golf is incredibly popular. And the best part is that it, too, has just been delivered and is key-ready for first occupation. None of this waiting around for building licences and then the construction phase. Brand new and with great interior qualities (see above).

All that's missing is you! If you want to snap up one of these key-ready golf resort apartments, get in contact with VIVA:
