Rent in Marbella, a paradise during the whole year

Rentals in Marbella is one of the preferred options for Spanish and foreigners, especially in winter. The 300 sunny days per year and an average temperature of around 20 degrees are the main asset of the city.

That is the reason for 35,523 foreign citizens to be registered in Marbella. There are different profiles of tenants looking for a home in Marbella:

  • Foreigners from cold countries looking to spend a mild winter.
  • Potential home buyers who decide to rent before buying to get to know the city properly.
  • Families looking for an international and cosmopolitan education for their children in Marbella.
  • Homeowners under construction or renovations.

Foreigners looking for a mild winter in Marbella

Countries like Sweden, England, Ireland, Belgium, Denmark, Germany … and in general the countries of northern Europe. These are the countries of origin of tenants who decide to settle in Marbella to enjoy a warm winter.

With minimum temperatures as low as -5º or -10º C, these countries make it difficult to enjoy social life in winter. While in November in Denmark we will find average temperatures of 0º to 5ºC, in Marbella we enjoy around 12º or 15ºC.

This, together with the huge number of golf courses, make the city on the Costa del Sol a paradise for residents of northern Europe.

Potential home buyers

Buying a home can be a lengthy process, and many buyers choose to rent a home before making the purchase.

On the other hand, many are also those who decide to try the city before settling in it. In this way they can get to know the city before making an important decision such as buying a home.

Families who want the best education for their children

In Marbella, we find many bilingual schools of great international reputation. In many cases, families decide to enrol their children in these educational institutions so that they are properly trained and learn languages. This way they mix with the cosmopolitan atmosphere that is breathed in Marbella.

Homeowners under construction or renovations

We all know the problems that come with a house refurbishing. It is a great annoyance that can increase (and greatly) our stress levels. This is why some residents choose to rent rather than suffer the constant hassle of renovations.

A similar case is that of those who buy off plan, but want to live in Marbella immediately. The construction of a villa can take up to 18 months. During this time many owners choose to live in other areas of the city.

Rentals in Marbella with purchase option accepted

Rentals with purchase option are one of the most requested products in Marbella. It is an opportunity to test a home. If, after rent in Marbella, we want to buy the house, we will not have lost our investment.
