There is no doubt that Marbella is still, today, one of the main tourist destinations in the world, but in the last 15 years has also become one of most modern and cosmopolitan the “mini-cities” in Spain with kind of contemporary infrastructure corresponding to the larger cities, says Ignacio Acosta.

Prime investment in housing, ie medium-high standing with a value per square meter of 4,000 euros, is another business that rarely fail. A house of good quality and above all, a privileged situation will always be difficult depreciation. Most real estate agencies point from Ibiza and Marbella as areas where it is a change of trend in the market of these houses first level.

At a time like the present, it is difficult to sell, the owner can raise selling a house in five years when they had left for rent three in order to have obtained a significant surplus. As in the stock market, the hardest part is finding the time to buy the lower prices and the highest know what to sell, with the aim of having carried out a successful operation. Informing and negotiating will be closer to perform the appropriate operations.

Today is not only a first-class place for a holiday, but also a truly exceptional environment in which to live and work.

Select good locations and take advantage of many offers very advantageous current sales Continuity of revaluations would come guaranteed not only by the loyalty of traditional markets investing for years in the Costa del Sol and its relation with golf. Some experts hope the arrival of increasing investment from the new countries of Central and Eastern Europe, together with the increasing investment of the most prominent elite of Arab countries could see in  the area an area of refuge capital where revaluations and cultural attractiveness of the area for this world it is already a landmark for the pioneers care from the beginning.

Luckily for those looking to buy in Marbella, the total volume of available properties is amazing, there is everything from apartments and townhouses next to the beach, to sumptuous villas and even cottages. And the good news is that, with the housing market depression, housing prices have fallen considerably, so there are real opportunities in all types of properties waiting for someone to take the opportunity in the real estate market of the region.

Marbella is divided into different areas and neighborhoods stretching from San Pedro de Alcantara, west to Elviria, east, so then present my exact guidance on which are the best places to buy:

  • Puerto Banús

Puerto Banus is undoubtedly the most famous of the city. “The Port” as it is known locally, has a luxury marina, shopping malls and residential complexes located 5 minutes from the center of Marbella, which was originally designed to attract the mega-rich worldwide.

Although the hedonistic days of its inception ended long ago, the influx is still very evident in Banús (sometimes you have to see it to believe it) and, therefore, is undoubtedly one of the most prestigious residential areas of Marbella, but of all the Costa del Sol, and property prices here tend to reflect that status.

As for the type of property you can purchase in Puerto Banus, the offer is very wide, with different types of properties on the market, ranging from apartments and penthouses,  townhouses and villas.

  • Los Granados

Los Granados, for example, is a luxury apartment complex located within walking distance of Puerto Banus. The resort offers potential buyers excellent views of the beautiful communal gardens and a large pool to the Mediterranean sea.

Reputed to be one of the best communities of Puerto Banus, offering private security 24 hours a day, a heated indoor pool, an outdoor pool, a restaurant and social club and these apartments, no doubt, would be ideal both as second homes as permanent residences.

  • Nueva Andalucía

The area immediately behind Puerto Banus on the mountainside north of the main coastal road N-340, is called Nueva Andalucía, but is better known locally as the “Valle del Golf ‘. As its nickname, the area is in a valley west of Marbella, home to several golf courses and each is surrounded by luxury developments, according to our real estate specialist and golf player, Ignacio Acosta.

Aloha Golf is a beautiful complex of townhouses near shops, bars, restaurants, services and amenities and only 5 minutes drive from Puerto Banus. The complex occupies a total area of about 9,000m2 and has wonderful mature gardens, a heated community pool and a tennis court. Residents here can also benefit from reception and concierge.

  • Albatross Hill Club

Is a private apartment complex surrounded by lush tropical gardens with 3 large outdoor pools and a heated indoor pool, along with a gym and sauna, and private tennis courts. It also has security 24 hours a day.

  • La Alzambra

The Alzambra is one of the most popular apartment complexes in the Valle del Golf, which is short walk from the famous Puerto Banus in Marbella.

The owners here will not only benefit from the proximity to the variety of shops, boutiques, bars, restaurants and nightclubs that have made Banus, one of the most desirable residential areas of the planet, but also enjoy some beautiful communal gardens with pool, waterfalls, fountains and other water features a rustic bar and a gym.

La Quinta Golf and Country Club is recognized not only by the superiority of its golf 27 holes but also for all the services and facilities of the hotel and spa. In a geographically large area, home to spectacular detached villas, apartment complexes and townhouses, and the good news is that some of these wonderful homes currently on the market.

  • Las Brisas

While Las Brisas is conveniently located near Banus and good access to all services and facilities in the area, as well as the golf course. The stretch of coast from Puerto Banus to Marbella town known as “The Golden Mile”, undoubtedly due to the beauty of the area, the quality and price of the housing stock in this area.

Puerto Banus, is one of the most prestigious areas of the city and home to some of the most extraordinary residential complexes on the coast.

  • Lomas del Marbella Club

Located high in the hills above the Golden Mile. The complex has extraordinary gardens and swimming pools and offers stunning views of the Mediterranean south and the famous mountain La Concha, northward. Only they have been used materials of the highest quality construction and finishes of the apartments in this complex. Then there is Altos de Puente Romano, where some of the last remaining plots for sale on the Golden Mile, with building permits for the construction of a villa.

  • Sierra Blanca

Las Lomas de Sierra Blanca is an exclusive complex of apartments and penthouses located in a quiet and elevated position on the Golden Mile and with wonderful views of the coast. The apartments in this complex have been constructed and finished to the highest quality standards.

Speaking of apartments and penthouses with the highest standards of quality properties for sale in Rio Verde Beach, the area immediately east of Puerto Banus, next to the beach, are among the best properties that can be found.

Areas east of Marbella are also in high demand among those who want to acquire a property on the Costa del Sol. This is due in part to the fact that the beaches in the area are the best that can be found throughout the region of Malaga on the other hand that the area has a natural beauty that is really extraordinary and also, surely, there are a range of high quality residential complexes, with an offer ranging from villas to apartments and townhouses.

  • Rio Real

Rio Real is one of those residential areas. It is immediately on the outskirts of the city, on both sides of the coast road N-340. It is ideally located for those seeking peace and quiet but still very close to some of the best white sand beaches of the coast and not far from the shops, restaurants and all services that Marbella offers.

Surrounded by exotic gardens and a fabulous golf course, the resort has a large heated pool, tropical gardens and private security 24 hours.

  • Los Monteros

Los Monteros is another high-level residential area, whose residents are the renowned actor Antonio Banderas.

Just walking distance to which it is arguably the best beach on the Costa del Sol, Los Monteros is divided into two zones, a lower along the beach, and a higher one, Los Altos de Los Monteros, located in the mountain side of the N340. Both sides of the Monteros are among areas and most demanded properties Marbella.

  • Elviria

A little further east along the coast road, the next most important thing to note is Elviria residential area, which is divided into two main areas: one near the beach and the other at the top of the mountains.

The beach area includes the same Elviria, whose main focus is the commercial center with its myriad of shops, bars and restaurants. Elviria also has several local schools and golf courses and a wonderful white sand beaches where the exclusive 5 star Don Carlos Hotel and the famous Nikki Beach club.

Zooming out a little of the coast to the mountains is Cumbres de Elviria, an established urbanization surrounded by cork trees, where several independent villas. A little further up the mountain is Elviria Hills, a small private brand new apartment complex located, as the name implies, high in the mountains.

  • La Mairena

And in the top of the mountain is La Mairena, the germans favorite, a unique and beautiful urbanization with aligned trees has its own local restaurants, a gym, tennis courts, a private German school and is very close to the golf course Santa Maria. It is ideal for those who love everything the coast (below) has to offer site but who prefer to be a little further away from the hustle and bustle.


Marbella outstands over the rest of Spain

The Costa del Sol seems more consolidated and stronger than the rest of her sisters (Costa Blanca, Costa Calida, Costa del Azahar) subject to urban management issues that have come to severe credibility problems, as has happened recently in Valencia. The lack of sensitivity to foreign residents and the lack of a long-term vision has led protests these become mainstream and reach mobilize more than a dozen ambassadors from European countries to communicate these complaints to the very former President Rodriguez Zapatero.

The statistics on property valuations return year after year to give a clear lead to the Costa del Sol which remains one of the areas reported higher profits to their investors. The data are conclusive: an annual increase in the price per square meter of housing priced exceeding 10 points in the Spanish media and the rest of the tourist areas.

Another important issue is that, for years, investing in the Costa del Sol is not synonymous with investing in Marbella. Developers and investors have been expanding its wide range in a territory that includes large parts of the interior and virtually the entire coastline of Malaga and Cadiz. The luxury hotels  and its surroundings are a luxury and prestige claim for a passenger car of a solid image based persist in this line for many years. Thus, investors allocate their savings in a wide area municipalities, coast, towns, places such as: Benahavis, Estepona, Mijas, Casares, etc. Supply, prices, qualities are very wide range of scales and possibilities.

Our advice is to know the Costa del Sol, enjoy some time of their possibilities and access large databases with a large number of deals that allow them to compare prices, areas, qualities, etc. and make the best decision. Do not rush, if you want to invest.

The warnings of the IMF, the OECD, the ECB, should serve to exercise extreme investor caution, selected good choices, areas and locations where supply can no longer grow and holds an important general residents who have consolidated with good services attractive and infrastructure. Prices may be high, but are still far from reaching those in cities or other tourist areas of Italy or France.
