Looking at the Costa del Sol, and in particular the Marbella property market in 2019, it was a year of both challenges and opportunities. Internationally, there were the distractions of the American-Chinese trade dispute, fears of a global recession and of course Brexit to contend with, though the first two seem to be fading into the background, and while Brexit has undoubtedly dampened the traditionally strong demand for Costa del Sol property from the UK, it continued to be the largest single market.

Marbella is sufficiently big to have different areas each with their own setting, property types, price range and characteristics. Different parts of Marbella suit different lifestyles, so if you want to be close to all amenities and nightlife, Puerto Banús is a good place to be. People who like being surrounded by a more authentically Spanish ambience seek homes nearer the downtown area of Marbella, while others enjoy the country club environment of El Madroñal, La Zagaleta, Los Flamingos or La Quinta.
