The Costa del Sol has always been a popular place to buy property, although those wanting to sell may have struggled to find a buyer with so many homes on the market.
But this year has brought positive news. For example, according to property consulting agency Aguierre Newman, the time it takes for a property to go on the market for sale and then be purchased by a buyer has been reduced by more than half.
Not only that, but the number of new builds that have recently been introduced onto the market has increased by 4.87% from last year, reaching 15,555 homes. This is the first rise since 2007.
