Have you long thought of buying a property in Spain but you are still uncertain about which coast to choose? In this case, we recommend buying on the Costa Blanca coast. Here are the reasons why.
Cost Blanca or literally, “The White Coast” is a coastline on the southeast of Spain, forming part of the Alicante province. Costa Blanca is about 200 km long, half of which are beaches stretching from the town of Gandia up until the province of Murcia.
Costa Blanca boasts an annual average temperature of 20◦C. In winter months, the average temperature is higher than on the Costa Brava, while in the summer it is not as hot and humid as on the Costa del Sol. There are almost as many sunny days in winter as in summer. The climate of the Costa Blanca is recognized by the World Health Organization as one of the best in the world. This is the reason why patients who suffer from arthritis or rheumatism come to this coast from all over Europe, and in a matter of days, they feel much better.
Costa Blanca primarily attracts pensioners from Northern Europe who immigrate to Spain looking for sun, sea and a healthier lifestyle. Moreover, among European countries, Spain has the cheapest average cost of living. According to statistics, life in Spain is about 11% cheaper than, for example, in Germany, Ireland or England. The average monthly cost of living in Spain is 818 euros.
Property buyers are attracted to Costa Blanca by the climate, absence of snow and cold, tasty and cheap food, fresh fruits and vegetables all year round and finally attractive real estate prices. The average property prices on the Costa Blanca are much lower than the cost of housing, for example, in London, Paris or Amsterdam. The average price per square meter in the Autonomous Community of Valencia in the second quarter of 2018 was 1,032 euros and 1,166 euro in the province of Alicante.
Last but not least, a lower crime rate and fewer refugees and illegal immigrants than in other European countries attract property buyers in Spain. Costa Blanca is one of the safest regions to own a property in Spain.
