Jan. 10, 2011 - PRLog -- Many reports today constantly berate property in Spain, slow markets, glut of empty Spanish Real Estate , poor economic conditions all the reasons why you should not buy Spanish real estate, not many people focus on the real opportunity that exists in the market in Spain today, also many times key areas of investment are missed such as the Canary Islands and Balearic’s as Spanish property seems to be grouped all under one banner ‘Spain’ with no  definition regarding area and location, in an interview late in 2010 Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Zapatero told U.S. news channel CNBC that prices had hit bottom and were on their way back up and this certainly seems to be the case within some areas of the Spanish Real Estate market.
Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands is starting to see a resurgence in buyers, Managing Director John Goldacre of GoldAcre Estates, who’s Head Office is based in Corralejo in Fuerteventura stated that  the Canary Islands seem to be pulling ahead of mainland Spain in terms of leaving the recession behind them, for us we had a very difficult 2008/2009 and in 2010 we started to see some serious light at the end of the tunnel, 2011 has opened very well for property in Fuerteventura and we are expecting steady growth throughout the year.

Of course there still remains some great bargains to be had in the Canary Islands Real Estate market  and if someone is seriously considering purchasing a property in Fuerteventura then there will be no better time than now, with some two bedroom townhouse’s as low as 69,500 euros, Sea front three bedroom apartments from 169,500 and villas in 10,000 m2 plots for 180,000 euros.

Goldacre believes that throughout the year property prices are going to start once again strengthening, not by large amounts but he believes the market will start to see increases coming in as of course some of the cheaper opportunities disappear as they continue to be snapped up by buyers who are getting wise to the opportunities and understanding that the low prices that we have seen will not be around forever.

The Christmas period for GoldAcre Estates saw many new clients looking to buy in Fuerteventura, because of course now the number of  flights have increased to the Island particularly with low cost airlines like Easy Jet and Ryan Air running direct European connections including flights to mainland Spain’ two main hubs Madrid and Barcelona and as well as a number of UK airports.
Fuerteventura has seen a lot of inward investment through the crisis which has included major extensions to Fuerteventura airport, producing a new arrivals terminal, extensions to the runway and departure lounge.

The Canary islands offer some of the best weather within a short flying distance to the whole of Northern Europe and many people have wanted to escape the recent freezing conditions and enjoy  the all year round Sunny conditions of the Canary islands.

Known as the land of eternal spring the Canaries offer some of the best year round climatic conditions in Spain, offering the buyers of real estate the opportunity to maximise on their investment throughout the year, of course many investors have realised that with a drop in price comes an increase in their % return on investment (ROI) as the strong rental season in Fuerteventura ensures exceptional rental opportunites.
