Should I get a Marbella second home?

As we leave the world of lockdowns behind us and experience real freedom for the first time in what feels like forever, many people are finally making those big decisions and trading in their 9 to 5 for a place in the sun. We’ve all spent a minute or two daydreaming about a life abroad; whiling away hours in the sun and spending evenings on a beach doesn’t sound too bad, does it? If you identify with this feeling, you probably should consider to buy a Marbella second home.

If you’re considering a move to somewhere warmer, a second holiday home in sunny Marbella could be the ideal choice for you. Of course, investing in a second home is no small decision, and it’s worth researching properly.

Here are a few reasons to consider a second home in southern Spain, courtesy of The View Marbella.

1. The surrounding area of your Marbella second home

Firstly, the location alone is enough to make anyone pack their bags and hop on a plane.
Situated on the Costa Del Sol in the foothills of the Sierra Blanca, the gorgeous getaway destination has so much to offer.

With beautiful mountain ranges, the glistening Mediterranean ocean and an abundance of natural scenery, Marbella is the perfect place to relax, unwind and take in the picturesque views.


2. A full range of options when you look for a second home

If you are looking for a second home or a holiday property, Marbella offers a variety of choices. According with researches made by Wilma Sierra Blanca, the top property types you can find as second home in the Costa del Sol include:

  • Frontline beach penthouses in Puerto Banús and the Golden Mile
  • Frontline Golf valley homes in Nueva Andalucía and Benahavís
  • Frontline beach villas in Los Monteros and the Golden Mile
  • Luxury villas and penthouses in prime areas of Marbella and Benahavís, as our development The View Marbella
  • Country club villas and mansions in La Zagaleta and El Madroñal

3. A property in Marbella is also a real estate investing

Last year, over 565.000 people bought a property in Spain, a marked increase over the previous year. Private homebuyers and investors are very much focused on the Costa del Sol, with Marbella at its heart.

According with Wilma Sierra Blanca, property transactions in the municipalities of Marbella, Estepona and Benahavís – a luxury residential area known as the Golden Triangle – rose by 48% to 8.644 sales in 2021, an indication of just how strong the lifestyle appeal and subsequent investment potential in the area is.
