Commercial Showcase… Back In Business

[caption id="attachment_3077" align="alignright" width="300"] Laguna Village[/caption] In recent months, as the real estate market has shown clear signs of moving into less troubled waters, most of the attention has been on residential properties. The realisation by potential home buyers from both traditional and newly emerging source markets that few residential areas in the world can match the Costa del Sol’s appeal – plus, of course, the availability of excellent “crisis era” and even “post-crisis” bargains – has rekindled interest in property investment. So that’s the reassuring picture in the residential property market. Quietly behind the scenes, however, there have also been encouraging signs of a recovery in another difficult real estate sphere: commercial… i.e. hotels, restaurants, bars, offices, shops and other building projects. A drive along the coastal highway between La Cala de Mijas and Marbella would have been enough over the past few years to realise that this market – so buoyant in the past – has been suffering just as hard as the residential sector, perhaps an even greater decline. Now, though, as corporate investors once again see the Costa del Sol as a potentially lucrative destination, and as individuals purchasing homes and moving to the area seek new business opportunities, the “For Sale” and “For Rent” signs are gradually being removed and many shuttered premises are being re-opened, refurbished and, in some cases, re-assigned to cater to new and reinvigorated commercial needs on the Coast. Of course, there are still some great deals available… and here we feature a diverse selection offered by Villa Marbella Now.
