What makes property in Marbella the Perfect Lifestyle Investment?

The area between Malaga and Sotogrande has always been a holiday hotspot, and the towns of Marbella, Estepona and Benahavis offer some of Europe’s very best hotels, the finest leisure, retail and sporting amenities, and a wide range of some of the best properties available in the Mediterranean.

Marbella is a jet-set paradise that has no equals in Europe. Easily accessible and offering an unrivalled 5* lifestyle, Marbella really does have it all! Sports, leisure, nightlife, but above all a safe, cosmopolitan and welcoming environment. There are an astounding 147 nationalities living in Marbella, so you will easily find a community that understands you and your culture.

Last but not least, readers of SWM will be interested in the amazing sports facilities that you could have on your doorstep.

This area is known as the Costa del Golf, as it has the largest concentration of courses anywhere in Europe with over 70 in total, including some of the very best in Europe. There are many amazing tennis and paddle tennis clubs, as well as fitness centres and gyms. The surrounding countryside offers lots of opportunities for hiking and mountain biking and of course there are water sports all along this beautiful stretch of coastline. All of this, with 320 days of sunshine a year!

Andalucia is now one of the lowest tax areas in Spain

Andalucia is making it more attractive for high-net-worth and ultra-high-networth people to come to the region by changing their taxes. This includes the recent scrapping of wealth tax.

Here’s what you need to know –

• Wealth Tax abolished in October 2022 – eg: saving over €70k per year if your worldwide assets exceed €5m

• Lowest property transfer tax in Spain – now 7% on all purchase amounts – no sliding scale as previously

• Golden Visas available for purchases over €500k – allows non-EU citizens unrestricted access to Spain and neighbouring countries

• Inheritance tax virtually ZERO – personal allowance for direct relatives is now zero up to €1m and 99% discounted thereafter

These tax-reduction measures are seeing an influx of HNW and UHNW individuals, their partners and families, to Marbella and its surrounding areas. Demand is coming from all corners of the globe.

Of our last 24 transactions, there have been 18 different nationalities of buyers, from as far afield as Canada and the US to Kuwait and South Africa. All our buyers are seeking a better quality of life for themselves and their loved ones, whether that´s on a permanent basis, or just for a few months per year. Marbella is now THE place to be for successful entrepreneurs, business leaders and sports stars.
