More property buyers 'looking to Spain'

There has been a rise in the number of people expressing an interest in buying real estate in Spain, new research has found.

Fly2let cited a report from the Overseas Guide Company (OGC), which revealed it experienced a 60 per cent rise in requests for information about the nation during September.

Client relationship manager at OGC's research centre Elaine Ferguson commented: "Spain has suddenly begun to take off again and is now commanding the second largest share out of thousands of enquiries coming from people interested in buying overseas."

Richard Way, editor at the firm, told the website that budget is a key consideration for those thinking of entering a real estate market abroad.

He added that countries like Spain are doing well because they are relatively easy to reach from the UK and the journey is usually inexpensive.

Earlier this month, journalist and author Anna Nicholas stressed the importance of visiting the country several times before committing to a property purchase.

She explained it is important to get an idea of what the area you are considering buying in is like at different times of the year, to ensure it will meet your needs in both summer and winter.
