Every winter I am reminded of just why Northern Europeans fell fond of the Costa Del Sol to begin with. A beautiful setting, fabulous beaches, a relaxed lifestyle and 300 days 12 months of sunshine are a very good pull indeed.

For this reason the fundamentals of the South of spain property market can be strong, despite the banking crisis of 2007 and it is affect on the overseas property market.

Estate agent in Spain say that recently investors from Britain happen to be creeping back into the market. Inquiries are up, primarily from cash-rich buyers or those who sat on the fence at the peak of the market and still have watched prices fall off their peak.

People certainly held back 2009, but these people recognise that they cannot put their lives on hold because of the recession and they also cannot put off that retirement date, so are getting on with their lives. Demand always been relatively weak through 2010, however that pent up demand is feeding in a recovery in 2011 both in number of sales expenses. It's not just the British that have returned to the market, searching for a bargain, the strength of the German economic recovery has grown the number of Germans thinking of buying property and it seems Russians who're the biggest buyers coming from all. A survey published by Savills International learned that the overseas second-home information mill likely to be characterised by cash rich, lifestyle real estate investors keen on bargain prices.

Remember it is the upper end of the market that has delayed best, prices are typically 15% down on their peak, however are beginning to tick up.

If wisdom states that the more upscale end of the market makes the best investment opportunity, then logic claims that somewhere like the Los Flamingos Urbanization could possibly be the ideal choice. It gains advantage from 9 golf courses and exclusive housing developments spread across the 5 star Ritz Carlton Villa Padierna Hotel and Spa. Gleam planned beach club and various other sporting facilities. Chosen by Americas first lady Michelle Obama for her Summer vacation in 2010 the growth has an exclusive, classy feel, with the peace of mind that comes from gated security.

If the price tag of a few of the completed villas available on the market for between 2 and 5 million Euro is sufficient put you off then consideration must be given to buying a stretch of land in a good location and achieving your own villa constructed. Provided you are careful that all necessary permits are obtained this should prove a great Marbella villa investment, whether you're looking to move to the sun's rays permanently or constructor your dream home in the sun.

With your strong fundamentals and returning demand it can be highly likely that prices are going to increase. Even if real-estate prices just keep pace with inflation they will have to rise by 5% per year. If you have a dream of the home in the sun, or are trying to find a decent return on your investment portfolio you'll want to carefully consider whether you are missing out and will look back down the road on what was a great opportunity missed.
