MARBELLA, SPAIN (STL.News) – In the 4th quarter of 2018, from October to December, 12.64% of all Spanish properties were bought by people from outside Spain – and 15.54% of these buyers were from the UK.
Similar figures were also reported for Andalucía, with British nationals accounting for the majority (22.49%) of foreign purchases in this specific region for 2018.
Such statistics suggest that Britain is still the biggest foreign market in Spain, with Brexit having very little impact on the number of British citizens showing interest in and buying property.
In fact, since the Brexit vote of 2016, the registry has reported a significant increase in the number of British buyers, with 9116 British sales completed in 2015 and 10166 sales completed in 2018.
