Malaga has experienced one of the most prominent recoveries since the 2008 property crash.
In 2017 alone, the province registered 30,300 property sales, 14.6% higher than the previous year. This represented the second highest number of sales per inhabitant in Spain.
Almost 30% of these homes were purchased by foreigners, a percentage that also places Malaga amongst the most attractive provinces for foreign buyers, behind Alicante, Tenerife and Girona.
Last year, Malaga had 18.39 sales per thousand inhabitants and was only just beaten by Alicante with 18.75 sales per thousand. This figure is also over double the Spanish average, which was 8.6 sales per thousand inhabitants.
In absolute figures, Malaga’s house sales are the fourth highest in the country with 26,436 sales. It is placed behind Madrid (69,966), Barcelona (53,773) and Alicante (34,631).
Foreigners bought nearly 9,000 homes in Malaga during 2017. This was a significant number and represented approximately 30% of total sales in the province.
The percentage still remains lower than in previous years (approximately 34% between 2014 and 2016) due to the slow pick up of the national buyer’s market, but it continues to demonstrate the pull that Málaga continues to have for foreign buyers.
