moving into a fresh new home

It cannot be denied – newly built properties are proving far more popular than existing, or so-called resale homes.
The latter are defined as villas, townhouses and apartments that completed earlier, have already been lived in and are now being resold, while a new-build home is one that is bought off-plan (while still under construction), has just been completed and is ready for first occupation by its owner when delivered.

Newer properties are definitely proving to be most in demand among buyers right now, across the board but above all among Scandinavian, Dutch and Belgian buyers.
Besides the obvious appeal of moving into a fresh new home for the first time and being the one who decorates and landscapes it to your personal tastes, newly constructed real estate is so popular right now because people love the modern architectural styling and open-plan layouts, the 21st century build quality, the latest amenities such as home automation systems for lighting, security and home entertainment, and also today’s communal facilities.

These can include 24-hour gated security, a clubhouse with private spa facilities, modern landscaping and infinity edge pools, children’s clubs, gym and many more elements that set contemporary villas and apartment complexes apart from those built even ten years ago.

Many still love the older homes and styles too, but modern properties simply offer more in the way of comfort, convenience and the kind of mod cons people increasingly look for. Remarkably, modern homes are not appreciably more expensive than resale properties as owners tend to emulate new-build values and set their asking prices at levels that are in reality a little too high for a property type that is relatively less in vogue right now.

This provides another reason why contemporary real estate in Marbella, be it a modern Marbella villa, apartment, townhouse or semi-detached villa, is selling far more rapidly than resale homes.
