Hartlepool, United Kingdom (PressExposure) April 23, 2009 -- The approach toward springtime has heralded a rise in the popularity of Spanish property according to overseas property portal Property Abroad.
"[The increased volume of leads for Spanish properties] can be attributed to the great number of bargain hunters scouring the market in the hope of getting their dream holiday home investment at a knock down price," said Les Calvert director of the portal.
When asked what areas were most popular Les said:
"The Costas are always a favourite, Marbella, Costa Calida, and as expected the Costa del Sol to name but a few of the most popular regions."
"People are looking at the places they always have, but unlike before they are looking at the larger and higher end properties trying to benefit from the 50% discounts that can be found if you know where to look," Les explained.
Apparently there are still some opportunities to buy repossessed properties in Spain, which is ensuring the high levels of activity in the market from bargain hunters will continue in the short-mid-term at least.
"If people can buy a 1.5milllion Euro mansion for half a million quid they are going to go for it if they possibly can, and while they can," concluded Les.
