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.

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.
