Alicante is one of the most popular provinces in Spain for foreign buyers, with 51.53 per cent of local housing purchases made by international buyers in 2020 – a positive number for both those wishing to sell their property and those looking to buy.
So, you are thinking of moving to Alicante, but where do you go for that essential information on the best areas to live and the most trusted estate agents to help you on your property search?
Or perhaps you are wanting to sell your property in Alicante and want to speak to a reputable estate agency to help you with the sale?
To make your task a little easier, the Euro Weekly News has put together this handy guide on the best estate agents in Alicante to help you on your buying or selling journey!
Alicante offers new residents its own distinctive Mediterranean identity and a diverse array of towns dotted around the province, so there are plenty of neighbourhoods and property types to discover here.
Of course, we have to start with Alicante Centro! The city is full of history and charms including Santa Barbara Castle, Casco historico, the palm tree-lined Explanada de España, many beaches and a plethora of buzzing restaurants and bars.
Many of the houses in Casco Historico are more than 100 years old, with lots of them still with their appealing high ceilings and charming narrow staircases. A two bedroom apartment will start from around €150,000, a new-build house will start from around €270,000 and a fully-equipped studio apartment will cost from around €80,000.
Elche is a beautifully historic area, home to three UNESCO World Heritage listings. Elche is a popular option on the Costa Blanca for families, as the area has one of Alicante’s best international schools and the 5th best university in Spain (the Miguel Hernández University of Elche). It is also a great choice due to its close proximity to neighbouring towns and cities.
You will find two-bedroom properties here starting from around €250,000, fincas with land for around €500,000 and new-build villas for around €550,000.
Although known by most for its colourful nightlife, including bars, clubs and restaurants, Benidorm also boasts history that can be traced as far back as 3,000BC, Roman and Punic remnants, exceptional beaches, varied cuisine and great access to healthcare and education.
Popular with many retirees across Europe, the prices in Benidorm are quite stable, however, there can be quite a difference between old and new property prices. The minimum price for an apartment that is not too close to the beach starts from around €100,000 for a two-bed, villas in the so-called British area Rincon de Loix start from around €200,000 up to €700,000, and the prices for bungalows start from €150,000.
Situated between two charming salt lagoons along Spain’s lively Costa Blanca, the city of Torrevieja once famed for its salt mines has now become a favourite amongst internationals moving to Spain, especially those looking for a fun family destination.
You can expect to pay around €100,000 for a charming apartment here, or a townhouse can be sought for even less, at around €60,000 on average. If you’re looking for a villa, depending on the size, you might want to budget a bit higher as they cost around €400,000 on average.
A small historic town situated between Valencia and Alicante airport, meaning it is a convenient location by which you can easily explore the surroundings by local transport. Many of Spain’s rich and famous have a second home in Javea, while many more have made Javea their permanent home.
The housing here varies substantially depending on the area and, although the housing market can be quite expensive here, bargains can still be found. A modern and luxurious villa on the prestigious Villes del Vent development will cost around €450,000, a studio flat with a sea view will cost around €160,000 and a three-bedroom apartment on the front-line of the sea will cost around €1 million.
