The launch last Friday of the EU’s European Year for Development “for an inclusive and sustainable post-2015 world” coincides with Marbella’s mission to become Andalusia’s first Intelligent Tourist Destination, “an innovative space consolidated by cutting-edge technological infrastructure that guarantees the sustainable development of the territory.”
Announcing an alliance with the State Society for the Management of Innovation and Tourist Technologies (Segittur), Marbella mayor Ángeles Muñoz aims to “facilitate the interaction and integration of the visitor in our surroundings and increase the quality of their experience, at the same time as improving residents´ quality of life.”
Part of the Smart City initiative to provide services through new technologies, the smart money is on Marbella this year as record numbers of tourists arrive for the vacation of a lifetime, see the marvellous lifestyle, culture and leisure on offer year-round, and frequently convert to property buyers with Paradise Marbella Realty at their service.
The people come to find their ideal property for sale in Marbella and they found it with our service.
“In Q1 2014 (this time last year), Marbella was the only municipality on Spain’s Mediterranean coast to register a modest increase of 4.8%,” says the latest Andalusia Market Report.
“Things are looking much brighter in the prime areas overseas buyers head for, and the solid growth seen in 2014 looks likely to increase. It should be nearly impossible to make a bad investment in 2015 and it’s vital that buyers get the location and price spot on.”
The report highlights “Marbella’s best golf courses, were they to sell in a year’s time I would expect them to see a profit; the heart of Marbella’s golf valley; Nueva Andalucía behind Puerto Banús; the majority of activity in Marbella, San Pedro and Benahavís.”
“There are great sea-views to be had in the Marbella area,” the report continues. “The best views of the Mediterranean are from the hills. In the prime areas of interest to overseas buyers, such as Marbella, attention will focus on quality resales with perhaps, some upward pressure on prices if demand continues to grow as it did in 2014. This looks likely as Spain’s overseas tourism figures were up 5% on the year at 63.5 million, making Spain the 3rd most visited country in the world. As tourism grows more people are exposed to the possibilities of purchase.”
