Due to the destabilising conflict between Russia and Ukraine, the Slavic natives are fleeing and many find their new home in Costa Blanca.

The Notarial College of Valencia disclosed a 47,4 per cent increase from 2023 in the property sold to foreigners across Costa Blanca. 

This year has marked a period of success for the real estate market, with 31, 691 of these citizens purchasing a home in the region.

Almost 20 per cent of this market is made up of Eastern European nationalities, breaking a record in the Alicante Province.

“The situation of instability prompted the arrival of buyers from this entire area,” commented the Vice Dean of Valencian Community´s notaries, Delfin Martinez. 

The nationalities which moved to Costa Blanca this year included a large number of Ukrainians, Romanians, and Poles; who became the most numerous foreign buyers in Benidorm. 

An increase in Russians is also noticeable. As Martinez stated: “They have had it more complicated, but they have looked for a way to do it.”

The contrast between the state of these countries and the tranquillity of the Spanish coast continues to bring Slavic refugees to Costa Blanca, with a large impact on community and economy.
