The interest of foreign buyers in buying a home in Spain has returned after the restrictions of the pandemic have fallen and, in addition to the large markets in which they are traditionally interested, many buyers have been interested in small inland towns in which to establish their first or second residence, although without straying too far from the sea or from the areas of influence of their compatriots.
According to a study carried out by idealista, the real estate marketplace in southern Europe, the first non-coastal municipality in which there is a greater volume of searches for housing for sale from abroad is Ciudad Quesada (Alicante). The second town is also located in the province of Alicante: Busot. Third place is occupied by the Ciudalcampo urbanization, in the Community of Madrid.
In fourth place, we find El Verger (Alicante), followed by Fuente Obejuna (Córdoba), Ojén (Málaga), Formentera del Segura (Alicante), Palma de Gandía (Valencia), Viñuela (Málaga) and Montuiri (Balearic Islands), which ranks tenth.
In 11th place, also in the Valencian Community, is Villalonga (Valencia), and in 12th place is Olivella, in Barcelona. They are followed by Almogía (Málaga), Tanque (Santa Cruz de Tenerife), Algorfa (Alicante), Sineu (Balearic Islands), Turre (Almería), Montroy (Valencia), Puigpunyent (Balearic Islands) and Moralet (Alicante).
The study also offers the most visited town in each of the 50 Spanish provinces, which, although in many cases are far from the interest produced in provinces such as Alicante or Malaga, are relevant for local markets.
