Corona-Spanje-vakantiewoningen-costa-lockdown

In dit artikel deel ik mijn visie op hoe de huidige economische shutdown de Spaanse markt voor vakantiewoningen beïnvloedt en wat dat voor jou als koper kan betekenen. Van de ene dag op de andere is de “machtsverhouding” in de vastgoedmarkt onverwachts en sterk verschoven in het voordeel van de koper. Voorlopig althans.

In this article I share my view on how the current economic shutdown will affect the Spanish holiday home market. Totally unexpected, the property market is becoming a buyer´s market again overnight. Temporarily at least. After years of price increases, holiday homes will now become more affordable, with fairer prices in many cases, but equally new caution for buyers is required.
