Should I Buy a Resale or New Build Property in Costa Blanca?

The Costa Blanca property market is always growing and with so much choice it can be difficult to decide between a new build or resale property. At Welcome Estates, we know how important it is to find the perfect Costa Blanca property for you so have put together a quick guide to deciding new build or resale property in Costa Blanca South.

Location, Location, Location

When it comes to choosing your dream Costa Blanca property, location is key. Whether you will be moving to Costa Blanca to live in popular areas such as Torrevieja or Guardamar Del Segura or simply looking for a holiday home in Alicante to take a few trips as a year as a family, the right location can make or break your dream Spanish property experience.

In terms of location and new build vs resale, many areas in Spain and Costa Blanca are already built up as residential areas and if you have a specific area in mind to buy a property, you may need to consider that there may only be resale properties available. Alternatively, if the area you would like to buy a property in is a newer area, you may find only new-build property opportunities available. If a traditional Spanish way of life is important to you, buying a resale property in a quieter, more traditional village or town may be a good fit.

Nearby Amenities

The type of property you buy can also be affected by the surrounding area on a more immediate, amenities basis. For example, resale properties based in smaller towns provide plenty of charm but may only have a few shops nearby without driving into the nearest town. If lots of amenities are important to you, many new build Costa Blanca properties are built on specially-created sites such as golf resorts with dedicated amenities at your fingertips. So, if you are a golfing fan, buying a new build property on a golf resort could be the perfect fit with resorts such as Serena Golf Resort, Vistabella Golf and La Finca Golf offering plenty of past-times for golfers and non-golfers alike.

However, La Finca also offers a number of modern resale properties too which moves us on to our next point on choosing the right resale or new build property for you.

What Type of Property Are You Looking For?

Whilst new-build properties in Costa Blanca can be created to fit your needs, many older or resale properties offer their own unique style that can be attractive to those looking to buy property in this region of Spain. Sometimes the unique features of existing properties can be a draw, in which case, you may find that a resale property in costa blanca could be the right fit for you.

Costa Blanca Property to Fit Your Needs

If you have specific ideas about what your family needs out of a holiday home or Alicante-region property, designing your own property could be an option. We explained all about designing your own Costa Blanca property in our blog but if you know exactly how many bedrooms, pools and more you want from your property and have been struggling to find the right Costa Blanca resale property to fit, a new build with design and build could be for you.
