New neighborhoods, a good long-term investment

At this moment we notice a great real estate offer and numerous projects being developed in both the Costa Blanca and Costa Calida. This offer is found in areas consolidated years ago for tourists and on the other hand in recently developed neighborhoods.

As land is a limited resource and popular holiday destinations have been built to meet the growing demand for housing, land prices have increased as a consequence.
