Is This the Right Time to Sell Your Spanish or Portuguese Holiday Home?

For many, holiday homes aren’t forever. There comes a time when a change is wanted and selling is the right thing to do. Triggers for this can include:

  • Your children have grown up and the location no longer suits your needs
  • The characteristics of the location have changed
  • You want to do something else with the money invested in your holiday home
  • Health and mobility issues mean you can no longer make use of the property and it becomes a financial drain rather than a source of enjoyment
  • It’s just become too familiar and you want a change

More recently, the pandemic and the after effects have resulted in travel being more difficult, unpredictable and expensive. Whilst, this is most likely temporary, it may have changed your view on the risk of owing a property abroad.

Of course once you have sold your property there is no reason why you can’t visit the area again but without having the maintenance demands of your own place.

Whatever the reason, the process of selling your property may seem complicated, uncertain and daunting. Properties Overseas is here to help. Contact us at or ring us on 0330 001 1247 to discuss how we can assist you.

We provide a range of advice and support to help you complete your purchase quickly and as smoothy as possible.

Using Your Holiday Home as a Base to Explore Spain

When considering buying a second home in Spain, one of the reservations in many people’s minds is that they will not get to see other places. However, many of the popular holiday home locations also have travel companies that provide a range of trips and visits. They can be used to explore nearby locations on day trips or to go further for a few nights.

Using a holiday home in Costa Blanca a couple booked a 3 day trip to Seville and Jerez. This enabled them to visit the world famous riding school and a bodega in Jerez where barrels signed by Margaret Thatcher, Bobby Charlton and Michael Schumacher and many more were stacked. On the other days they explored the beautiful city of Seville. The bonus was the journey there across Southern Spain past stunning countryside including the snow capped Sierra Nevada mountain range.

Spanish Property Market

Latest data on property sales in sales show that the reduction in demand due to the pandemic has already ended. 19% higher than the year before Covid hit. Sales are nearly back at the levels seen just before the financial crash, 14 years ago.

The increased demand was experienced in nearly all regions. However, so far property prices have remained steady. If demand continues at current levels, though, it is possible that may change.
