Features of the property market in the southern Costa Blanca
The southern part of Costa Blanca has more affordable properties than the northern part. This is due to the fact that the north has more varied and picturesque natural scenery, there are rail connections through many of the resort towns and in some of them, the area is protected by the local authorities. Over the last 5-7 years, many new and modern housing developments have been constructed on the south coast. People from the CIS countries are buying property there and demand is increasing. For example, Torrevieja has a large Ukrainian diaspora and the Association of Ukrainians is very active.
It is important to note that property values on the southern coast remain relatively low when compared to similar properties on the other Spanish coasts.
