Did you know that after France, Spain is the world’s most visited country? With over 300 days of annual sunshine, the world’s largest number of blue flag beaches and one of Europe’s lowest costs of living, it’s no wonder why 82 million tourists visit Spain each year.
Spain’s popularity as a holiday hotspot for foreign visitors generates 90 billion Euros and accounts for 11% of the national economy.
With such strong tourism demand, investment in villas in Spain may be a sound decision - and you wouldn’t be alone in doing so. Buying a private villa in Spain has long been a hot favourite for foreign buyers, particularly in the popular Costa del Sol (southern region of Andalucía) where foreigners have been routinely visiting since the introduction of packaged tours began in the 1960’s.
Since the housing market crisis of 2007, Spain’s real estate industry suffered a decade-long housing price decline. However, in recent times the second-residency market for villas and apartments in Spain has been given a ‘shot in the arm’ by overseas buyers. In the last few years foreign investors comprised a certain part of all purchases for Spanish villas. In sought-after coastal areas, expatriate buyers were more than half of purchases for homes in Spain.
Interestingly, British investors, who previously dominated the bulk of foreign buyers of houses in Spain, have exercised a ‘wait and watch’ approach due to the uncertainties of Brexit and the subsequent decline in the value of the Great British Pound.
For houses in Spain, not all areas are created equal. Previous to the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) and decade long housing market decline, many areas in Spain experienced significant unsold housing stock built on the back of the pre-GFC housing boom. Areas that were built to cater to domestic buyers are still slow to recover, but there’s a silver lining to be found with some of the deeper bargains for villas in Spain - especially at the lower price range. Areas targeting domestic buyers are generally located inland and focus on transportation links to year-round employment opportunities.
The outlook is much different in popular tourist hotspots; areas where foreigners historically patron are enjoying a resurgence in buying activity.
While many tourists buy holiday homes in Spain for the lifestyle benefits, a new segment of buying behaviour has emerged thanks to the economic stimulus program introduced by the Spanish Government in 2013. The “Spanish Golden Visa” was enacted to encourage foreign investment in Spanish real estate after the local economic devastation from the housing market crisis. Under the Spanish Golden Visa rules, foreign nationals who purchase real estate in Spain of at least 500,000 Euros will be granted automatic residency in Spain and the freedom of movement into Europe’s Schengen region.
Spain’s Golden Visa program raised over 2 billion Euros in the first 3 years and is fast approaching 30.000 residency permits issued. Predominately it’s the Chinese and Russians who buy a house in Spain that constitute 60% of all applicants and foreign investment revenues generated from Spain’s Golden Visa program.

The Spanish housing market for best villas in Spain provides investors several categories:
1. Secure, Gated-Community Houses and Villas
Commonly sold direct from developers, these category of houses are sold with all essential utility connections such as water, electricity, sewerage, internal roads, street lighting, paths, gardens, satellite TV and Internet infrastructure, boundary walls and gated security.
Homes for sale in Spain are available in golf resorts, seaside developments or nearby urban living. The high-end premium developments are typified by offering lifestyle facilities such as gym, swimming pools, clubhouse, on-site supermarket, security, garden areas, playgrounds, basketball and tennis courts, etc. These Spanish villas for sale are usually at the top-end of the market and attract premiums due to the lifestyle facilities on offer and the managed, secure complex. Large villas in Spain sold by developers are usually built exactly the same in terms of aesthetics, materials and layout, with exception to slight variances in villa layout between bedroom and bathroom count, and the entry level villa (usually 1-2 bedrooms) to the larger size premium villas (usually +4 bedrooms).
2. Suburban Resale Houses
The most common standard of houses for sale in Spain, frequently located in suburban residential areas with surrounding facilities. All expected infrastructure such as water, electricity, gas, sewerage, satellite TV and Internet connections are available in most cases.
Villa styles can vary considerably given each home is usually privately built from a plot of land in Spain as a bespoke project by owner. Exceptions occur where developers build in clusters in suburban areas and they become available on the secondary market as individual villas for sale in Spain.
3. Country Homes (Fincas)
These available properties are Spain’s equivalent of the remote and rural countryside villa; otherwise know as “Finca”. Finca’s generally have strict building regulations in place to protect the countryside and are usually sold on larger than traditional suburban plots of land in order to accommodate agricultural pursuits and meet required land-to-build ratios. Utility connection availability varies considerably from property to property for Finca villas in Spain for sale. Buyer’s should conduct thorough research into available utility connections and Internet signal strength.
