How much does a house in Sotogrande cost?


The question of how much you can expect to pay for currently available Sotogrande property for sale is naturally a very different one amid the coronavirus crisis to what it may have otherwise been.

The combination of the unpredictability of the virus’s spread in Spain, the measures that may be imposed to contain it in the months and years ahead, and uncertainty as to how both national and regional house prices may react, makes it notoriously tricky to assess how much a given buyer may end up paying for a particular Sotogrande property.

But what other factors will enable you to assess the likely cost of your own Sotogrande property if you are presently looking to buy?

The headlines tell sometimes conflicting stories

With coronavirus restrictions around the world preventing many people from even travelling easily across borders – never mind conducting an overseas property search – you might wonder whether the pandemic has especially driven down property prices in more touristic areas of Spain.

Sure enough, expatriate newspaper The Olive Press recently reported that the Costa Blanca and Costa del Sol areas of the country – the latter where Sotogrande is situated – could see property prices fall by more than 20 per cent over the coming year, as a consequence of COVID-19.

This single prediction, however – which comes courtesy of Barcelona University and a well-known consulting firm – has to be considered alongside less dramatic predictions like that of the US credit rating agency Standard & Poor’s, which has suggested a mere 1.4 per cent drop in Spanish property prices this year.

In any case, several reports have pointed to a possible quick bounce-back for the Spanish housing market once the coronavirus crisis fades.

Furthermore, as an especially exclusive and prestigious destination – frequented and inhabited by household-name politicians, sports stars and even royalty – Sotogrande has historically been resilient to property market shocks adversely impacting prices in other parts of the Costa del Sol.

So, even if the COVID-19 pandemic does exert some downward pressure on the price you might otherwise expect to pay for a Sotogrande property for sale, it’s best not to assume that such an effect will last for very long.

We would therefore urge you – whatever the conditions may be – to act quickly to secure your desired house, apartment or villa if you do aspire to own one of the many luxurious and sought-after properties in this enduringly popular corner of Andalucía.
