EWN talks with property expert Peter Bowerman about the Costa del Sol property market and advice on whether it is a good time to sell your property.

At this particular time of year, in the height of summer, the coast is buzzing with tourists and holiday homeowners enjoying the fabulous outdoor luxury lifestyle that the coast is famous for. Within the beautiful Marinas along the coast, you will find an array of chic designer shops, traditional Spanish Tapas bars that serve fine Spanish wines and also glamorous seafront restaurants. According to Eurostat, living well in Spain is still very affordable, with food and drink prices well below the E.U. average, making eating out not just for the affluent, but attainable for everyone.

Although the real-estate business tends to slow down in August, we are still very busy showing lots of properties to holidaymakers, who often dedicate a couple of days getting to know certain areas and familiarising themselves with what properties are on offer and at what price. Once they realise their overseas dream can be a reality, what then normally happens, is they book a second trip in September to focus solely on their holiday home purchase.

So, if you are thinking of selling a property on the Costa del Sol, we recommend you get your property on the market now, ready for September / October, which is historically one of our busiest selling periods of the year. Call us now for a free valuation/market appraisal as we offer the best marketing packages on the coast and offer a lot of services in our standard fee, that other agents do not. Such as professional video tours of your property, which are then promoted heavily all over Europe via digital marketing and social media. These video tours are our most effective tool to sell properties nowadays. We also advertise your property in the more traditional ways like property magazines, best newspapers on the coast and of course sending your property details to around 11,000 of our clients. However, we also market your property through our giant network of over 1,000 agents on the coast and abroad, so sole agency with us is actually like putting a property on with over a thousand agents.

Peter is a frequent contributor to the UK / Spanish press and was one of the panel of experts for Overseas Property Professional magazine, having spent most of his working life as a professional real estate agent and valuer. He is also the Managing Director of one of the coast’s top Master Real Estate Agencies “Overseas Dreams” with registered offices in both Marbella and Mijas Costa.
