If you are seeking luxury property in Spain, Home Hunts now has all the resources to help you find your dream Spanish home.
In September Home Hunts launched its hotly-anticipated property-finding service in Spain. Founded in 2003 on the French Riviera by Tim Swannie and François-Xavier de Vial, the company has expanded over the years to cover the most desirable locations in France, as well as Monaco, London and New York.
With the property market in Spain having always been a favourite with overseas buyers, particularly the British, it has been a natural progression for the buyer’s agent to expand and include luxury Spanish property.
“We have been looking to offer the same service in Spain for some time, but were waiting for the right market conditions,” explains Director Tim Swannie. “We are initially selling property in Marbella and property in Ibiza, but we will also be launching in Majorca before the end of the year.”
Known as the Saint-Tropez of Spain, Marbella is highly sought-after by overseas buyers looking for luxury Spanish property. A city on Spain’s southern coast on the Costa del Sol, it has long-attracted the rich and famous to its golden beaches: Sean Connery used to be a resident and Simon Cowell owns a property in the Sierra Blanca area. Famous visitors include the likes of David Beckham, George Clooney and Tom Jones.
While Ibiza is renowned for its unique club scene, this island – the third largest of the Balearics – is also popular with couples and families seeking relaxing, cultural holidays. Many of its areas are registered as UNESCO heritage sites and protected from development, which is why property here is often in such high demand.
A destination adored for its beauty and its buzzing nightlife by an ever-increasing number of celebrities, Anne Hathaway, Kate Moss and Orlando Bloom are just a few who have been spotted recently holidaying in this fashionable location.
“The Costa del Sol, Ibiza and Majorca are all very interesting destinations for property investment as prices have come down in these areas in recent years and there are some fantastic deals to be made,” says Tim. “The majority of our clients tend to be looking for holiday homes or pure investment properties and while we do help some people to relocate full-time, the holiday home market is our main focus.”
Finding the perfect property can be a complicated affair and Home Hunts’ team is trained to help buyers navigate the entire buying process, from finding the property to negotiating the best deal. The company is frequently commended within the industry for providing an exceptional service and will be honoured again at the European Property Awards in October 2016. Part of the International Property Awards these are among the most sought-after real estate awards in the world and this will be the fourth time that Home Hunts has been recognised.
“We really get to know our clients and build-up a relationship with them so we understand exactly what they want,” says Tim. “We work with all the best-selling agents, as well as developers, private owners and lawyers, and so on, to make sure we can search the entire market for our clients. We also have a network of specialists such as mortgage, tax, currency exchange brokers, builders and architects, so that we can guide them through the entire process.”
