Recent statistics show that Spain has the largest amount of Swedish expats outside of Scandinavia. Of course this comes as no surprise to Blu Sun Consulting’s Estate Agent in Marbella, Pia Karstróm, who made the move herself nearly 10 years ago and is still happily settled in the foothills of Andalucia, just a stones-throw from the stunning Marbella coastline.
The regular low-cost flight connections help to sustain the influx of tourists to Marbella with Norwegian Air Shuttle, Scandinavian Airlines, Ryanair & Veuling all competing for landing space at the newly renovated Málaga airport. In fact, Málaga airport (also known as Pablo Ruiz Picasso airport) has always been the third busiest airport in the whole of Spain and now, following a €320 million update is very modern with 3 terminals, plentiful shops and restaurants, wifi availability and a child’s play area.
The regularity of the flights, convenience of the airport (only 45 minutes from the centre of Marbella) and many more infrastructure improvements that have been completed in recent years has aided the steadiness of tourism and property investments from economically stable countries such as Sweden. Whereas citizens from other countries have struggled to complete on purchases since the Marbella property crash in 2007, the Northern European buyers have taken advantage of good opportunity.
This year saw property prices in Marbella fall another 40% whereas property prices in Sweden continued to rise. Many real estate agents in Marbella, report that this situation has proved appealing for many Swedish and Scandinavian investors who have been able to secure excellent prices for luxury properties close to the beach or surrounded by golf.

An example of one of the most attractive deals currently available in Marbella is La Cala Golf. This is a small selection of townhouses, situated within a golf resort in an exclusive development of 102 luxury townhouses, alongside two fairways. The views are breathtaking as the properties are located within a natural retreat close to the mountains and sea. Currently the developer offers a fully inclusive price with all furnishing, golf membership and spa usage.
Real estate agents in Marbella have seen a notable increase in the amount of properties that were sold at the end of 2012. This is largely due to the tax incentives that were set by the government to stimulate the local property market. It is estimated that prices will steady and then commence an increase in the latter part of the year.
