Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España is reporting this week interest in Spanish second homes continues to grow by the British during the COVID-19 pandemic.
UK visitors to the company's website increased by 39% during the first week of 2021, when compared to the first week of 2020. Interest from other European countries is also on the up, with web visitors from Germany up 51% and those from Belgium up by 44%. Domestic visitors have increased too, with website visits from Spain up 15% on the year before. Leads, meanwhile, were up 30% for the first week of January 2021, compared to those a year earlier.
Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España says, "Unfortunately, both the UK and Germany are in lockdown right now, while Spain, France and a whole host of other countries have extensive restrictions in place. But that doesn't mean that would-be buyers aren't dreaming of owning a home in the sunshine. The appeal of Spain's golf courses and expansive beaches is only emphasized by stay-at-home orders; families are itching to return to normality with a newfound zeal for travel and leisure time."
Both mainland Spain and Mallorca continue to attract keen interest. The mixture of affordability and sunshine that the Costa Blanca delivers has long been a favourite with British buyers.
