As already indicated, there is the past 15 years much has changed in the way of building in Spain. By the real estate crisis are builders become aware that not everything simply to sell more. One is going to be better empathize with what the customer is looking for and therefore the quality is vastly improved over some 20 years ago. Not only in terms of material and construction is a great improvement visible. The quality also affects energy consumption; where, until 20 years ago often even some glazing was used we now see very good double glazed Windows with aluminum frames. Build quality and building materials are much better than in previous years. A new house in Spain is much more energy-efficient. If you have a car or buy a new washing machine do you expect that they are energy efficient. Why would you not take it into account when buying a holiday home or an apartment in Spain? On that site there is a considerable progress has been made in recent years and make the builders use of sustainable energy in parts of their power supply. Do you buy real estate that was built in the 1990s or earlier, then it will be decided much higher energy consumption.

If you buy in a residence, often by the very well maintained, beautifully decorated common areas with stylish swimming pools and relaxation areas. An indoor spa area with sauna, heated swimming pool and jacuzzi are no exception. Also a small sport facility and children’s playground on the complex we see more and more often. The present new building projects often find themselves on the best locations. Precisely because someone who buys a property in Spain anno 2019 often know very well what he/she is looking for the project developers will have to differentiate. Projects are often well laid out with lots of privacy and new homes are stylishly and thoughtfully designed. This will often use natural light and magnificent view through the large Windows. Possibility to choose materials. If you plan on buying many new construction projects you have the possibility to decide themselves in the materials used. Floor and wall tiles, counter tops, appliances, used colors etc. are mostly to choose from a number of variations. This allows you to personalize your home and there from the start your own style.

Warranty and maintenance cost new House.
Buying a new house in Spain offers another important advantage: you buy a House with guaranteed. In addition, there is 1 year warranty on the House m.b.t. material and defects. The project developers are also required to give a guarantee of 10 years on the construction of the home. As regards the first years maintenance costs you will also certainly have an advantage. You buy a new home so all materials are new and have not had any wear and tear. This includes for example the boiler, electrical appliances, but also frames and sliding Windows/doors. With little or no maintenance during the ownership and good potential for any future sales, makes buying new construction a wise investment.
