Estepona is the only town that has seen a small decrease, as 1,474 properties were sold, registering a -1.9% against last year.

The data provided by the Ministry of Development confirms that foreign buyers currently are the most involved in real estate transactions, mainly due to the appeal of Costa del Sol among other touristic residential areas.

During the first three quarters of the year, foreigners (residents and nonresidents) bought about 7,500 homes in Malaga area.

Undoubtedly Costa del Sol, with Malaga and Marbella at the top, are preferred for those seeking a home in one of the places with the best climate in the world.
