25 June, 2014: With property prices in Southern Spain bumping along the bottom and with good quality homes on the market at great prices, this is the perfect time to snap up a bargain, if you’re looking for a home in the sun. 

Puebla Aida and Mijas Golf Properties

The favourable exchange rate of the UK pound and the Scandinavian currencies, and the fact that property prices per square meter are about a third of Northern European prices, has helped to create a return to the property market in some areas of Southern Spain. With over 300 days of sunshine a year, and arguably the best weather in Europe, southern Spain has always been a draw for Northern Europeans. 

Puebla Aida village situated in Mijas Golf, on the Costa del Sol, just 25 kilometres from Malaga airport, has been experiencing an upturn in interest and sales of its properties. 

Built over a 20 year period from 1984, Puebla Aida is a unique development of villas and apartments designed in historical Andalusian style, with stunning views across the championship, twin golf course to the sea and the Mijas mountains. Properties in Mijas are classically designed and ageless in style. With lovely, flower filled walkways, fountains, four swimming pools with gardens and sun decks, Puebla Aida is a delightful, peaceful place in a beautiful setting. 

Puebla Aida and Mijas Golf Properties 

Puebla Aida currently offers nearly forty properties for sale on its website propertyinmijas.com ranging from one to four bedrooms with views to the sea and/ or the mountains of Mijas. Some properties are immaculate, ready to walk in to and enjoy, while others are in need of a make-over, which is reflected in the price. Property In Mijas has recognised, quality builder contacts to make modernising and re-modelling to suit personal tastes an easy task. 

Anthony Smee, Managing director of Property In Mijas says: “I’ve been involved In property in the UK and Spain for a number of years and every now and then market conditions create the ideal time to buy a property. I believe Spain is entering that phase now.” 

One example of a beautiful property currently for sale at Puebla Aida, offering exceptional value for money and ready to walk into, is a three bedroom, two bathroom house with stunning living space. Moorish arches and columns, open Roman brickwork, marble floors and a vaulted, beamed ceiling provide character and style. A large west facing terrace and two upstairs balconies enjoy open views to the mountains. Currently priced at €287,000, this property would have sold for over €400.00 at the height of the market, which is listed as C13 on their website. 

According to Anthony: “Having experienced the property boom and then the slow down, we are now seeing a gentle return to healthy sales with more people looking to buy from all nationalities, compared with 18 months ago. The Costa del Sol benefits from major investment both in Malaga airport, which now has two runways and has become a hub for the Western Mediterranean with regular, year round flights, and also in the number of motorways which has improved the infrastructure dramatically over the last seven years.”
