Marbella Apartments Still Proving Popular

Whilst many people dream of owning a large villa in the South of Spain, purchase statistics show that when it comes to actually handing over the cash, Marbella apartments seal the deal.

Whereas a villa provides increased levels of space and privacy with dedicated lifestyle facilities such as swimming pools and spas, they do tend to be located in areas that have a more sprawling landscape (giving the opportunity for an expansive plot). Therefore villas in Marbella are often located a little further away from the main town centres - exclusive areas such as La Zagaleta and El Madronal are prime examples of this. And although it is true that there is a strong and mature market all across the Costa del Sol for these types of large-scale properties, recent history shows that a smaller Marbella apartment, situated in a prime district close to the beach, bars and restaurants can be a more secure investment when considering resale potential.

Of course the advantage of an apartment is that it is located within a community. Therefore, not only are there shared costs for all of the landscaping and general maintenance requirements but there is a more sociable atmosphere. Marbella is known as a key holiday-property location and therefore it is often preferable to be somewhere that enjoys year-round activity (also a factor that proves attractive to those intending to retire to Marbella). Apartments in Marbella that have been purchased within these top areas have also secured holiday rentals with little decrease in demand during the years of global crisis.

Some beachside apartments are also connected with a hotel meaning that the level of the available facilities is heightened to provide true luxury living. For less than a million euros, it is possible to purchase a new and beautifully styled 181 square metre 3 bedroom Marbella apartments within the Mar Azul hotel complex. Not only is there direct access to the beach but there is a fully managed and serviced swimming pool (indoor and outdoor), spa, gym and restaurant. The apartment can be furnished to the height of taste and there are staff available at all times to assist with your every need. True luxury.

Whilst there is a huge difference between the costs per square metre when comparing with a Marbella villa, it seems that the luxurious advantages and convenience can sometimes outweigh the financial penalties. Of course, there are also options for more budget-friendly properties. World Property Warehouse currently promotes a 2 bed roomed Marbella apartment in the sought-after location of Nueva Andalucia within a fully managed luxury resort from only ‚¬195,000. This property comes with communal swimming pools (2 external, 1 internal), a sports and social club, a tennis court and is closely located to bars and restaurants.
