Buying a holiday home

When you are looking into buying a holiday home, what are the most important factors you will be considering? Is it the price and location? Some holiday home owners base their decision to purchase on where they will get the most amount of sun for their money.

Even with the summer season slowly approaching, unfortunately the UK the weather can be unpredictable and there is no guarantee of sunny spells. However, over in Spain you can enjoy almost 3000 hours of sunshine per year and warmer weather.  So you can understand why holiday home buyers have swapped viewing property in the UK for beautiful houses and apartments in Spain.

Other top holiday home hotspots include Algarve, in Portugal’s southernmost region, which enjoys just as many hours of sunshine annually as Spain. Here you can expect to spend around £72,000 for one and two-bed apartments, costing you £1.17 per hour of sunshine. Whereas in Eastbourne you could be paying anything around £150,000 but only getting 1,900 hours of sunshine a year. This means it is costing you £3.86 per hour of sunshine.
