Costa Blanca property is top of the wish list according to leading Spanish property portal

Costa Blanca remains favourite region accounting for nearly 35% enquiries on

Leading online Spanish property portal‘s latest analysis of the forever popular Spanish property market identifies just where and what foreign buyers are looking for in terms of Spanish second homes.’s enquiry report analysed enquiries made by email during the first quarter of 2014 showing that between January and June 2014 47% of enquiries for properties in Spain sat within the £50k to £150k price range with 39.8% of enquiries looking for an apartment while 33% desired a three bedroom property.

Furthermore, the findings show that by province, Alicante on the Costa Blanca remains the favourite location for foreign property hunters accounting for nearly 35% of enquiries made on

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Manager at Taylor Wimpey Espana comments, “The report provides an interesting insight into what today’s buyers want from Spanish property. There are numerous reasons why the Costa Blanca still ranks top of the list for property buyers. For Brits the easy to reach, reliable good weather plays a big part, swapping grey clouds for blue skies and the strength of the pound against the euro (currently at a 22 month high) means that visitors can get more for their money which has no doubt aided the increase in people snapping up attractive deals.”

Pritchard continues, “We at Taylor Wimpey Espana believe we can meet the needs of customers not only because many of our properties are located in the wonderful Costa Blanca region, but because we can deliver on property type and budget requirements as highlighted in the Kyero report. We have seen a rise in enquiries for second homes across Spain particularly amongst Britons, Germans and Russians and these are translating into sales – with British buyers showing a 24% increase from Jan-Jun this year in comparison to 2013!”

As a result of the Costa Blanca’s popularity, Taylor Wimpey Espana have launched another front line development in a joint venture with Grupo Inmobiliario Gomendio near Alicante.

Property buyers wishing to soak up the sun in this fantastic region should look no further than La Recoleta. These new apartments are located in a stunning location in Punta Prima, Torrevieja on the wonderful Costa Blanca, famed for its fabulous white sandy beaches.

La Recoleta’s Mediterranean style buildings, wide avenues leading down to the sea, immaculate garden areas and well-run services make this a perfect place to relax and enjoy the fantastic climate all year around.

According to the report three bedroom properties in Alicante with swimming pools are top of the list for holiday homes in Spain,and this development absolutely meets buyer’s needs, showing that Taylor Wimpey Espana are on point yet again, catering to demand across the Costa Blanca.
