Expatriates are still being drawn to property in Spain, recent comments suggest.
According to Robin Wilson, head of overseas at Rightmove, British expatriates in particular are fond of the country, which remains "the number one slot" for those looking to buy overseas property.
He added: "Searches for Spain are up eight per cent year-on-year and it's still pulling in some 20 per cent of all the searches on Rightmove Overseas."
Expatriates thinking of buying a home in Spain should be aware of all the things to consider when relocating abroad.
International health insurance is one such item to check because many expatriates will not be entitled to the same state healthcare privileges they receive in their country of origin.
The comments follow the publication of figures from the National Statistics Institute, which found that property transfers decreased by 0.4 per cent last year.
