psychic-72085_640It would be great to have a crystal ball and be able to know exactly how it will be in this New Year, but optimism is high for the travel market in general, the Spanish economy and the local Costa del Sol bubble we call home. 2014 felt like a more positive year and on the ground here there’s certainly more hope for the future, with opportunities coming along and house prices finally on the rise.

Here are a few other things that are predicted in recent research to look out for if you own a property on the Costa del Sol:

Global Travel and Tourism Spending will increase – According to the 2015 Global Travel Price Outlook, global travel and tourism spending in 2015 is expected to rise by 8.6%, related to the rise of emerging markets like China, India and Brazil, as well as an increase in established and strong markets.  Good news for those renting their homes on the Costa del Sol.

More people searching and booking on smart devices – Smart watches, tablets and phones are all growing in popularity and more and more people are finding out about destinations in this way and making bookings. This means that in 2015 social media, images and videos will be increasingly really important for reaching them, as well as secure and easy online booking facilities to encourage them to book and pay.

Increasing demand from British buyers – According to a report by Alfredo Milla from Sonneil.com, British buyers were not big players in the Spanish property market last year, compared to Scandinavian countries and other Northern European buyers. However he believes that we should expect British demand to rise as the UK unemployment rate has dropped, the exchange rate is stronger, the Office of National Statistics expect the GDP to grow by 2.8%, nearly to the levels of pre-recession times. That would certainly be a welcome return for the Costa del Sol, which has really missed the Brits, both as holidaymakers and buyers.

We would encourage all property owners on the Costa del Sol to feel positive about 2015 and make sure they are in the right position to capitalise on the growth. This could be through renting out your property, which is a great way to make money on your investment whilst you are waiting for the property prices to continue to increase. In order to do this well you need to promote your property online and offline and ensure that the property and your rental clients are well looked after.
