the property market in Estepona
Are you looking to sell your property in Estepona? There is a question that you should ask yourself before listing your home… Should a vendor sign an exclusive right to sell contract with an estate agent or not?
Summer 2017 has been quite a busy time in terms of property sales and purchases in Estepona – due to the increasing popularity of Estepona town, we found that a lot of buyers were interested in an investment property especially near the port with the intention of renting short term. So much so that we are now in the process of replacing the great properties we have sold!
Wow, I can´t believe it is summer again! So far, after a rather hot June, temperatures are a steady 28 – 30 degrees centigrade and very pleasant, especially the cooler evenings making it perfect to enjoy a drink in one of our many chill out bars and beachside restaurants. Aside from selling property in Estepona, we also find time to enjoy ourselves!!
One of the things we love the most about this business is that no two weeks are the same.. This week at Future Homes has been particularly focused on the luxury property market in Estepona, Marbella and Casares. Ranging from exclusive golf developments to large-scale plots of land and country houses for sale, we have seen a wide variety of very interesting listings that we look forward to offering to our clients.
We are very proud to say that we have been selling properties in Estepona and surrounding areas since 1999. Establishing a real estate company on the Costa del Sol in itself is rather easy nowadays, all you really need is a website and you´re off! However.. We know all too well that it takes a lot more than a good website to remain in business (and busy!) for over 17 years, having survived the recession we have seen the market evolve in many different stages, along with the major improvements that the town of Estepona has undergone over the past 5 years.
This year Easter starts on the 9th of April with Palm Sunday and finishes with Easter Sunday on the 16th of April and Estepona’s maze of white streets, decked with colourful pots brimming with flowers is the perfect backdrop for the wonderful Easter processions. As a Catholic country, “Semana Santa” or Holy Week is very important and is celebrated with daily processions through the streets. Following these processions is a great way to explore a town and see traditional Spanish culture in action.
18 years is a long time! Future Homes has seen the property market evolve in Estepona and on the Costa del Sol since 1999. Although there are many variable factors that have changed over the years, our advice and our “top tips” remain the same for buying a home in Spain, no matter where or when you do it!! You will not go wrong if you use this article as a guide.

Having been selling properties in Estepona since the year 1999, we have seen times change and the real estate business has certainly evolved over the past few years. When we opened our first office on the Avenida de España we used to develop our photos from film!
