Lovely views from San Juan de Capistrano

San Juan de Capistrano in Nerja

The urbanisation “San Juan de Capistrano” is located just out of Nerja on a hill side facing the sea. This combination of tranquillity, lovely views and still close to the town makes a perfect holiday home in Spain.

Most visitors only know Nerja for it’s amazing Balcón de Europa or the busy beach “Burriana Beach”, but San Juan de Capistrano is a hidden gem and worth looking for.

Property prices in Spain at 30 – 50% compared to when it was at it’s highest

Spain

The sun is still shining in Spain

Valencia and Murcia hit hard

The property boom in 2002 to 2008 were fuelled mainly by retired north Europeans who bought up new-built second houses in places such as Valencia and Murcia, says political scientist Julio Embid, of think-tank Fundación Alternativas.

Real estate prices have now fallen some 30% to 50% from their highs, leaving Spain’s banks, or cajas with housing stock on their books whose current value is much lower than the original.

Meanwhile hundreds of thousands of houses built during the boom remain unsold, and people wanting to buy may find it difficult to get credit.

Mix of interests and lack of financial education

Embid also points to the cajas’ politically-driven executive appointments as a contributing factor to the crisis. “Many senior bankers were low-profile regional politicians or majors, without any financial experience or bank background,” he said.

Cheap villa for sale in the lovely town of Almuñecar

East of Malaga properties are cheaper

Axarquia is the area between Malaga and Nerja. In that area and a little further to the east and inland is where you find “the real Spain”. This is where the Spaniards are still happy when they see a foreigner, and you will see old women dressed in black sitting out side their houses having a chat with the neighbors

Almuñecar

Now it is easy to go to Almuñecar via the new motorway connecting Almuñecar with Malaga and the rest of the coast. The new motorway to Almuñecar is free, and once you have passed Malaga and Rincon de la Victoria, the motorway is straight and in a very good condition.
