Overseas property expert Amberlamb believes that while prices for some properties have come down, the high demand for villas in Spain means that many second home buyers may have to bring their expectations down somewhat in relation to what they can afford.
“The popularity of property in Spain has meant that prices for real estate have risen far faster than the average second home buyer can afford which has meant that town houses and apartments have grown in popularity simply because this is what the buying public can afford, ” explained the company’s co-owner, Rhiannon Williamson
According to a leading Spanish property expert, the demand for new courses and attached properties shows no sign of dwindling, despite the extensive facilities that are already in place in the country.

Paul Collins executive of BuyAssociation which deliver impartial overseas property advice through buying guides radio shows and podcasts remarked on the effect that Golf is having on the Spanish markets
“Golf tourism is an area of ‘strong growth’ and is fuelling the Spanish and Portuguese property markets. For the builders to fund the golf courses they build properties around the site. Thus we are seeing more golf property developments appearing in overseas property, even in Spain and Portugal, where there are already large amounts of golf facilities and properties associated with golf courses.
