Living by the sea: discover its advantages

Waking up, having breakfast a few steps from the sea, jogging every morning on the beach or contemplating the immensity of the ocean are just some of the attractions of buying a home on the coast.

Living by the sea is a pleasure for all five senses, and it is also good for our health.

The coasts of Spain offer the possibility of enjoying a wonderful climate and a gastronomy unmatched in the whole world.

With this scenario, why limit the use of these homes only to summertime? Let's see the advantages of living year-round near the sea.

Advantages of living near a beach


The advantages of living by the sea are innumerable. With a direct impact on our well-being, it generates a balance that helps us look at things differently and improve our quality of life.

Among the different benefits, the following stand out:

  • Improves physical and mental health: we don’t know why, but somehow the sea, the breeze and the sand tend to make us relax and improve our health.
  • Sea views: if there is a perfect awakening, it is undoubtedly getting up knowing that you are going to see the sea. Isn't it a wonderful thing? Well, this translates into greater happiness and optimism, whether you are going for a walk or going to work.
  • Leisure activities: coastal sites have numerous activities that other parts of our geography can’t offer.
  • Good investment for the future: owning a beach-front property is a great investment for the future, since you can rent it seasonally or sell it in the future.

What should you assess before buying a home near the sea

Don't buy on impulse

Buying a home is a huge investment; therefore it is not a decision that should be taken lightly or impulsively. It is important to stop and assess the situation.

Identify our needs

To have a clear picture of what you are looking for you need to know what your needs are. The first thing to decide is whether you are looking for a primary residence or a vacation home.

If it is a vacation home, it is important to know the weather conditions in the area and if there is a good variety of leisure activities nearby.

On the other hand, if you are looking to purchase your primary residence, you have to assess the infrastructure in the area and whether it is a good place to find work.

Know your operating expenses

It is important to know if the seller has any pending expenses with the community. To verify this, you can request this information from the estate manager.

It is also important to know and take into account the fixed monthly community expenses, as well as the amount of the property tax (IBI).

On the other hand, we must not forget the variable utility expenses such as gas, electricity or water: it is important to review the average monthly expenses, since depending on the chosen area or property type we will find very different prices.

Experts in property purchases

Buying a home carries certain risks that we do not have to take. The best option is to hire the services of a Real Estate Personal Shopper. An agent specialized in helping people make a safe purchase in real estate.

  • Professionals: they have the necessary knowledge to advise us on the purchase.
  • Experts: hiring a real estate personal shopper means that we will have someone on our side who knows the area and can help us find exactly what we are looking for.
  • Negotiators: they are experts in negotiating in our favour.
  • Time-savers: if we do not have the time or the expertise to manage the purchase of our new home, hiring the services of a Real Estate Personal shopper is the best option, as they take care of everything for us.

If you want to buy a home on the coast, our experts in real estate purchase advise you and accompany you throughout the entire process.
