Top Reasons to Buy Property in Málaga

It’s always a great time to view prospective property in the Málaga region. But why there, specifically? Spain is a large and diverse country, but Andalusia, and Málaga, in particular, continue to be popular. Whether you’re purchasing a holiday home, a retirement property or a nest-egg investment property, then Málaga is a safe bet. Let’s look at the top reasons to buy property in Málaga, depending on what sort of buyer you are.

Málaga for a holiday home

For your own family, a Málaga home-from-home is a brilliant idea. Fantastic transport links, with the airport close by and the  A7 motorway running all along the coastline. Perhaps it can become a little earner, too. Renting out a holiday home can be a source of a second income, and booking calendars are easily filled when the property has a Malaga postcode. Prospective tenants know they will be able to fly in on a budget airline, and be unpacked and on the beach without hassle. Choose homes with close proximity to the beach – always a holiday winner – or that have outstanding features, such as a great pool, or plenty of space for large groups.

Look at potential holiday homes along the New Golden Mile.

Málaga for families

Spain loves children. Restaurants, bars, there’s nowhere  – almost – that’s off limits to the little ones. Málaga makes a super new start for families, with its combination of beach life, culture, and lifestyle. Attitude to children is very relaxed, and both state schools and private international schools are on the whole, excellent. Kids will love the outdoors lifestyle and will spend more time playing outside, taking up sports, and enjoying watersports than they will on a PlayStation.

Be inspired by properties in Mijas Costa.

Málaga for retirement

The climate in Málaga is easy on old bones! Warmer winters mean less money spent on heating bills, and long sunny days, even in winter, are just healthier. You’ll find that you’ll walk more, perhaps take up a spot of golf for exercise, and ultimately feel better. A ground floor apartment is easier than a house with stairs, and a home for the future as well as the present. You’ll feel secure on an urbanization or an apartment complex with 24 hour security, which is normal in the area. There’s plenty of opportunity for excellent private health care in Málaga, and the state system rates highly in terms of league tables.

Look ahead to traditional and quieter places such as Estepona or Benahavis.

Málaga as an investment

Interest on savings is looking pretty dismal at the moment. A property investment makes so much sense in comparison to the eggs in one basket approach with savings. Select the best you can afford, and be prepared for serious profits when you want to sell. Property in the Málaga area moves quickly. Buying to rent? Then do your homework first, and select the most popular areas, where you’ll be able to long-term rent out your property and make a good solid profit. Somewhere closer to good public transport links, perhaps, to attract tenants that might work in the city.

Choose an ever-popular location such as Puerto Banús.

Whatever your status as a buyer, we’d love to help you to view the houses that will the best fit for you. Contact us today and let your first move on the Málaga property ladder be your best move!

A glamorous life in Puerto Banús

Perhaps you’re considering a move to Spain, either on a full-time basis, or you’d like a property there to retire to, or holiday in?  Have you considered Andalusia? Of course, you have. The kind and temperate weather is just one of the many reasons why Andalusia is a popular choice for many when they choose their place in the sun. So, you’ll be visiting soon to check out all of the different areas that make the best property investment. Take a closer look at property in Puerto Banús.

Where is Puerto Banús?

South west of Marbella, on the ever-popular Costa del Sol, Andalusia, Puerto Banús is in a class of its own. Just 6 km from Marbella, the marina itself is located within the area known as Nueva Andalucía. Find it 64 kms southwest of Málaga.  What are the origins of this special place? José Banús was a property developer with a strong vision. During the 1970’s he designed and built this luxury marina for the rich and famous. Wealthy clientele duly moored their yachts and availed of the high-class shopping facilities in this  – then – new enclave of the privileged few. These days, Puerto Banús has grown, but not too much, and still retains the charm of a traditional Spanish fishing village, albeit with the sparkle of the jewelled playground of the rich and famous. The glittering port is the foreground, the stunning picture perfect location is framed by the mountainous backdrop.

Why a new life in Puerto Banús?

Open a celebrity magazine or the social pages of any newspaper and Puerto Banús will undoubtedly be mentioned. The stars certainly come to this area to shine brightly, and there’s never a shortage of celeb spotting around the port area, and the high-class shopping areas. Enjoy luxury car-spotting? Then you’ll be in your element. There are enough shiny badges to satisfy the most ardent Top Gear fan. The marina, of course, is the focal point and main attraction. Owning a property here will allow you to regularly check out the 900 plus berths for famous names.

Property in Puerto Banús

Property hunting in Puerto Banús is a popular pastime and the lucky ones who get to live here find that it’s a brilliant investment. Five million annual visitors to Puerto Banús prove that buying a property as a holiday home is a sound bet. Living here means enjoying the finer things in life, and despite the guarantee of rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous, it has a relaxed and privileged feel about it. Enjoy the shopping, excellent port side restaurants, high-end sophisticated nightlife, and general upmarket living standards of Puerto Banús.

Reasons to Visit Málaga in September

Not many of us will require reasons to take a break, and some late summer or early autumn sunshine can be just the (aeroplane) ticket. September is a superb month to visit Andalusia in the south of Spain, in particular, the Málaga region. Why? Leave the raking and sweeping at home. Let’s consider some very good and valid reasons to visit Málaga and the area in September.

Cheaper deals

We all love to bag a bargain. Peak travel in the weeks during July and August may be the hottest, with the most things happening but they are also the most expensive. Booking flights is a pleasure, with more room on flights that are not necessarily fully booked – more luggage space aboard your flight too. No wailing babies or tantrummy toddlers are likely to be seated next to you. Prices are stripped of the high season hikes, and bargains are waiting to be bagged.

Beat the crowds

June, July, and August are the most crowded months as far as visitors to the region. City centre museums and galleries are quieter – though you may run into school groups – and the streets are free of holidaying toddlers and teens. Getting a table at your favourite Costa del Sol or city centre restaurant is easier, no need to queue. There are empty beaches for that early morning run, and the bars are quieter and minus the summer crowds. Go birdwatching in peace and catch the early autumn migratory birds, or set your sights on the local gulls.

Seen and not heard

The kids have gone back to school! Of course, Malaga and the Costa del Sol makes a fabulous family destination, but travelling during the school term is also attractive. perhaps you like the beach minus the bucket and spade brigade, or are looking to book a romantic break?   Shopping is far easier without the kids too, spend a little me time as well as splashing the cash on your kid-free time in the sun. Maybe you wish to do a spot of Marbella property hunting without the kids in tow?

Weather factor

Autumn may be drawing in hot on your heels in the UK and Ireland, but the sun has still got his sombrero on in Spain. The days should still see some seriously high temperatures, but not as intense as the peak summer months. Bring a shawl or a cotton jumper for chillier evenings, but still pack that swimwear and SPF for the long, sunny beach days.

Special events

There are, of course, still festivals and events happening in this area of Spain, in September. Let’s take a quick peek, and see what’s still to come.

  • The MTV Gibraltar Calling Music Festival kicks off this month, not Spain, but close enough to get to easily from the Costa del Sol.
  • September 2nd sees the start of the Grape Harvest Festival in Manilva.
  • Head east of Málaga, to Maro near Nerja, for the Festival of the Virgin of Wonders, held on September 7th to the 9th.
  • Join in with the Moors and Christians festival in Alfarnate on the 10th of September.
  • On the 16th of September, Benagalbón, part of the municipality of Rincón de la Victoria, Málaga, holds the traditional and popular Verdiales Music Festival.
  • El Borge holds the Day of the Raisin on the 17th.
  • From the 22nd to the 24th, Rincón de la Victoria pays homage to the anchovy! Fishy business indeed…and for something just a little bit cheesy to round up the month, head to Teba on the 30th of September, for the Annual Cheese Fair.

Fería de Málaga – All the Fun of the Málaga Fair

Today, Saturday August 12th, sees the start of the Málaga Fair, or Fería de Málaga. Last night it all kicked off with an explosion of colourful fireworks that were best viewed from the beach. It’s just one of many fiestas and ferías in this wonderful region of Andalusia, taking place this August. From today until the 19th August, locals and tourists alike join in with the fun of the Málaga Fair – what are you waiting for?

Easy access to the Málaga Fair

Even better if, say, you have a nearby property in Marbella, Estepona, or Málaga – you can ditch the car and head into the city via public transport, and forget the headache of parking the car. That will be a huge problem as the hordes descend on the city for a few days of fun and sunshine – the latter is of course, almost guaranteed. Here’s the weather forecast for Málaga for the next seven days, precipitation nil!

So, dress up in flamenco frills, and join in with gusto – and be prepared for long days and endless partying. There’s lots happening during the eight days and seven nights of the Málaga fair.

 

Day Fair

Literally millions of people attend the Málaga fair. It’s split into the day fair, and the night fair. Both are hugely popular. If you’re wearing heels, pop a pair of flats in your bag, you’ll need them as the day wears on. The daytime fair is centred in downtown Málaga. The first celebrations took place in 1491, so it’s a pretty long-standing event. The origins of the fair can be traced back as far as 1487, the year when the Catholic kings Fernando and Isabella rode triumphantly into the city to reclaim it as a part of Catholic Spain from its Moorish occupants, The streets in the centre are beautifully decorated, and there’s lots to see. There’ll be street art, street theatre performances, and lots of food and music. There’ll be lots of sherry tasting and the opportunity to try sweet Málaga wine. Budding photographers will be spoilt for choice, with the colours of flamenco dresses, decorated streets, and more than 100 acts and performances.

FAB Property Top Tip: Be vigilant. Watch out for pickpockets as you stand around in a tight group.

Night Fair

Malagueños meet up again as night falls over the city. There are seventy-three casetas this year, little private tented areas where clubs or groups of invited guests gather. Centred around Cortijo de Torres, the cooler air is more comfortable as the night draws in. The evening doesn’t draw to a close though, it revs up with rides, food stalls, late night drinking and general full-on fun. At 11pm, there are live concerts in the municipal auditorium, and the crowds throng the streets.

Malaga fair horses

By the time the Málaga fair ends on the 19th August, you should be just about ready for a relaxing week on the beach!
