Costa Blanca, one of Spain's leading real estate markets
Benidorm, Altea, Elche and Alicante are some of the most important cities on the Costa Blanca. This area is characterized by its cultural and gastronomic richness, great tourist influx throughout the year and being one of the most active real estate markets in the country.
The real estate market on the Costa Blanca
The more than one million tourists, together with the business and commercial investors in the area, make it a perfect area to acquire a property. Alicante has great national and international connections, thanks to its airport and several marinas and ports in the province. This has made it one of the most active real estate markets, thanks to the countless supply and, above all, demand. On average, around 5,000 properties are bought and sold annually in the province, of which 10% belong to new construction. The average price per square meter in coastal municipalities is approximately:
1.500 €/m² in Alicante capital.
2.600 €/m² in Altea.
2.280 €/m² in Benidorm.
2.700 €/m² in Calpe.
2.200 €/m² in El Campello.
1.200 €/m² in Elche.
2.900 €/m² in Jávea.
2.400 €/m² in Orihuela.
1.590 €/m² in San Juan de Alicante.
2.000 €/m² in Santa Pola.
1.800 €/m² in Torrevieja.
2.000 €/m² in la Villa Joyosa.
These are medium-high values on par with Spain's most important cities, such as Seville, Malaga, Madrid or Barcelona, as well as San Sebastian or Valladolid. This is due to the limited space of the land, as well as the high demand for properties.
Currently, newly constructed homes are at the forefront of the desire of citizens of any nationality. New properties are perfect for the inhabitants of the area and, above all, for foreigners. The great communicative capacity between clients and construction companies to carry out administrative procedures remotely, thanks to electronic signatures or changes in the property, is a great advantage for this group. It avoids making continuous trips to keep an eye on the work or be aware of the changes made. The latest new-build homes are very exclusive and of high quality, especially in areas such as Altea, Benidorm or Moraira.
Residential areas and complexes have sea views, one or several swimming pools, 24-hour security, outdoor leisure, recreation, and children's or sports areas. Currently, acquiring a property in a promotion with these characteristics on the Costa Blanca has a price of 350,000 euros for a 120-square-meter apartment in Torrevieja, a 2-bedroom apartment in Alfaz del Pi for 370,000 euros, or a 3-bedroom property in Calpe with sea views for 390,000 euros.

In general, each and every one of the towns in the province of Alicante is characterized by economic activity, a festival, or a natural landscape that makes it unique. But the following five can boast of being the most sought-after areas to visit, eat, and above all, buy a brand new property.
Alicante. The offer of properties in the capital is concentrated in the centre and the old town. Newly built homes are generally apartments with 2-3 bedrooms, very central, with prices ranging from €180,000 to over €300,000 for a penthouse. To buy an attached or independent property, it is necessary to go to the outskirts, to areas such as Campello or San Juan.

The holiday sector closed last summer with record visitor numbers with 100% of places occupied.
