It’s easy, even as a foreigner to buy property in Spain; in fact the government encourages foreign investment and it’s considered one of the easiest European countries in which to buy, with very few restrictive practices. The British are the top buyers in Spain, and the country is home to an estimated 250,000 Brits, many of whom have a second home there. When it comes to property for sale in Spain, choosing where to live may be a challenge. The most popular areas are the islands of Majorca and Tenerife, along with the Costa del Sol, and many people live here or have a vacation home because of the almost perfect weather year round. Also popular is the coastal city of Alicante and the surrounding area, and Seville and Malaga are considered two of the cheapest large cities to buy property in.
