22 August, 2016 by SpainHouses.net

The only residential complex in Europe to be given an LEED Platinum certificate, one of the most prestigious sustainable building certifications in the world, is in the Madrid dormitory town of Tres Cantos.

Arroyo Bodonal Residential ComplexIn June, the USGBCI (US Green Building Council Institute) awarded the cooperative of developers behind the project, Arroyo Bodonal, with the international diploma, recognizing its ecological credentials and ushering it into a club of 21 Spanish buildings with LEED certification, including properties owned by multinationals such as Zara, Repsol and Iberdrola, as well as several public buildings and universities.

Consisting of 80 resource-efficient apartments, Arroyo Bodonal was begun 13 years ago and is now inhabited by 225 people, mostly in the 33 to 43 age bracket, who have paid between €127,000 and €350,000 for a home there.

Modestly priced, the project has succeeded in exploding some of the myths surrounding sustainable construction, while reopening the debate over whether building green homes is a viable option in Spain.

Spain’s housing market continues to show steady signs of recovery

8 August, 2016 by SpainHouses.net

Eight years after Spain’s property market crashed, house sales continue to increase, with a three-year high registered in June as some 36,856 homes changed hands, up 19.5% from the same homes for sale in Torrevieja, Alicantemonth in June 2015.

Building on the growth seen in April and May, sales for the first half of 2016 were the best since 2010.

However, growth is largely restricted to five major cities and their surrounding areas: Madrid, Barcelona, Alicante, Malaga and Valencia. Total sales for the first half of the year were 207,593.

Residential construction is partly driven by foreign investment, which is pouring into developments in Madrid and Barcelona; a jump in building permits points to more growth to come. Construction and real estate accounted for more than a third of the nearly €22 billion ($24 billion) of foreign investment in Spain in 2015, Economy Ministry data shows.

Brexit has not affected property sales so far, say Costa del Sol real estate experts

1 August, 2016 by SpainHouses.net

Is a weak pound and the uncertainty accompanying the Brexit vote having or likely to have an impact on the British demand for property in Spain?

MarbellaWhile demand for property has been growing since 2013, a reversal is anticipated given that the market for UK buyers is driven by the strength of sterling.

It is also expected that the buying pond for British owners wishing to sell and return to the UK may also evaporate somewhat in the short term.

However this is not a view shared by those on the ground. Gary Oliver, sales director of Remax property agents, thinks not.

“We do expect some buyers may hold off to see what the coming weeks and months will bring but with little long term impact,” he says.
