L00king forward to summer 2021

Welcome back to Sotogrande! The past 18 months have been very difficult for everyone around the world and despite being in paradise on Earth, Sotogrande was nodifferent. It was very emotional seeing our beautiful beaches and streets nearly empty and restaurants and shops closed.

We were very lucky that despite the global situation, the real estate market remained strong and the demand for luxury property never wavered. Of course, like many other businesses, BM Properties also had to reinvent itself by doing more video viewings and virtual consultations. We have seen prices in Sotogrande slowly increasing with some properties even selling above the asking price. This is always a very positive sign for future projections.

People are also searching for larger properties with more land. According to the Spanish Land Registry figures for the 4th quarter of 2020, detached houses have been in high demand – the highest since 2005. People are also opting for more land where possible and bigger surface area builds including terraces and gardens.

Meanwhile, Gibraltar is experiencing an unprecedented demand for luxury real estate, with almost everything that was available being sold over the past 6 months, with investors arriving from all over the world looking to buy. Surely this scarcity in Gibraltar will push more buyers towards
Sotogrande.

We are so delighted that the mask mandate was finally lifted, and we can walk around without our masks. It is so wonderful to see all businesses and restaurants open and welcoming back our locals and visitors. We know that this past year-and-a-half was very difficult on them too, therefore we must do everything to support the small local businesses. They are the backbone of our economy.

We have lots of exciting things this summer, including Polo Matches, Flamenco Evenings, and even Summer Cinema Nights at the La Reserva Beach Club. Our beautiful beaches are once again packed with those escaping the rainy cold summers up North or the unbearable heat in inland Spain. Our Beach Clubs are second to none, offering some of the best food and always friendly service. Make sure you book early as tables are filling up fast.

We wish you and your family a wonderful summer in Sotogrande, and we look forward to assisting you with the sale or purchase of your dream home.
