A home with a sea view, it is a dream for many. This idealistic picture is what INVESTINSPAIN can make possible for you. The Costa del Sol has a very extensive and stable real estate market with many luxurious frontline beach properties. Quality of life is a priority for many and the developers take this into account. Within new construction projects, facilities such as spa, fitness, sports fields, etc. are provided, but also concierge services and other on-site services that make your stay as carefree as possible. The total picture is of great importance, where you as a resident are surrounded by luxury and serenity. And of course the sea, which is within walking distance and which you can observe from your terrace, is part of this overall picture.
On the Costa del Sol there are numerous projects under construction with direct access to the beach, a true luxury that cannot be found everywhere. Frontline beach locations are therefore very popular among international investors. However, the sought-after seascapes are not only available on the coast itself. The hilly area just beyond constitutes an enormous added value for real estate because the sea views are often even more extensive. Benahavís, for example, has in recent years seen an enormous growth in expats who come to enjoy views that run from Marbella to Estepona and beyond. As a result, the mountain village has seen a huge expansion of golf and luxury accommodations, but still retains its authentic charm. And other underlying communities also enjoy the same benefits. So if you want to enjoy the best sea views, you can focus both on the coast and the beautiful hilly countryside of the Costa del Sol. Check here which projects we have in portfolio!

Costa del Sol – A unique lifestyle
Within Andalusia, the coastal region known as the Costa del Sol is the undoubted lifestyle destination for people from all over Europe and beyond. Stretching from Sotogrande in the west to Malaga in the east, the area offers spectacular subtropical greenery and seascapes within the sunniest climate in Europe.
This makes a unique way of life that is ideal for outdoor activities such as golf, sailing, horseback riding, tennis, yoga and hiking. A vibrant cosmopolitan social scene has developed here since the international elite first “discovered” this region in the 1950s, and today Marbella is an upmarket residential lifestyle destination in the heart of the Costa del Sol.
The more than 70 golf courses whose greenery spreads across the area, embody its ability to let you experience life to the fullest, yet each part of the Costa del Sol has its own characteristics and lifestyle suitability. Most attractive is the region from Marbella East through Benahavis and Estepona to Sotogrande.
Purchase new build properties in Costa del Sol
New build beach properties on the Costa del Sol are usually bought through an estate agent, or directly from the developer. It is impossible to buy new construction from a private owner, so there is less room for price negotiation.
The price of a newly built villa or apartment is exactly the same if you buy it through an estate agent, or directly from the developer. This is why many foreign buyers in southern Spain choose to use a real estate agent.
The process is different, because when you sign the purchase agreement and make a deposit, your lawyer will verify that everything is as the developer claims. Once this is confirmed, payment is made by the buyer in regular instalments, as stipulated in the purchase contract, until the final payment is completed and the property is registered in your name, complete with first occupancy permit.
The new construction buying process is governed by laws, which require that all money paid during the construction period must be guaranteed by a bank or insurance company.
In addition, this law requires the developer to take out a 10-year insurance policy covering any basic defects in the building, with the buyers as beneficiaries. To ensure that the property is delivered according to the agreed specifications, it is always wise to do a comprehensive completion before accepting delivery. In addition, the same rules apply so that the transfer deed issued by the developer to the buyer is signed before a notary and the property is registered in the name of the new owner, complete with first occupancy permit.
