It is a fact, foreign buyers have returned in force to the Spanish property market. And it is not just private buyers but international investors are also in the market. This situation could create yet further opportunities for international buyers.

It is at the very top end of the market, where the wealthiest overseas buyers hunt for a place in the sun.

In the glamour areas of Marbella, Puerto Banús or Elviria on the Costa del Sol, there are even the first signs of a shortage of available property as coastal developments will always be attractive.
The Costa del Sol remains a glamorous hot spot for the rich and famous as in recent weeks we have seen several famous faces, celebrities and politicians visiting or acquiring properties. Names like Claire and Tony Blair, Antonio Banderas, the singer Prince or even Vladimir Putin.
At any rate, the Spanish market for high-end and luxury properties is proving popular with international buyers.
