New build vs Resale

The Costa Del Sol property market has seen a large increase in new builds in the last two years, with most of these properties located in Málaga City. Whilst new builds have numerous benefits including, availability, the ability to easily personalise, and efficiency they are generally located on the outskirts. Comparatively the cost per m2 of a resale home is usually less than a new build. In the last twenty years the resale market has flourished.

Our market specialist says “the best reason for buying a resale property is location. With very few exceptions, prime development land has already been built upon. There’s a good reason for that; the best locations always get developed first.”
