Having always been a favourite second home destination, early 2016 figures from leading Spanish homebuilder, Taylor Wimpey España, confirm that British buyers are firmly back in Spain and account for a quarter of the company’s 2016’s January and February sales. Overall, the total YTD sales as of February 2016 have risen dramatically in comparison to last year, with British buyers increasing by a colossal 367%.
This substantial rise suggests that British buyers are turning to the safety and familiarity that Spain has to offer when deciding on where best to buy a property overseas. According to the most recent figures from Knight Frank, it is the beautiful Balearic island of Mallorca that is attracting both British and German buyers. As the two principal nationalities active in Mallorca, they account for almost 80% of all prime transactions.
A resident of the island himself, Taylor Wimpey España’s Sales and Marketing Director, Marc Pritchard, explains more,
“We have definitely experienced an influx of enquiries in relation to property in Mallorca, with our sales numbers for this region increasing considerably. British buyers are comforted by Spain’s consistency as a second home location, and the array of properties available enables them to find the perfect property that meets all their necessary requirements. The start of this year has been extremely encouraging and we are confident that this positive trajectory will continue into the 2016 summer season and throughout the rest of the year.”
Meeting the increasing demand of Mallorca emerges as a summer hotspot for 2016, Taylor Wimpey España has recently announced the completion of brand new apartments to enjoy this summer, on two of their exclusive developments on the island.
