Exciting new developments on the Costa del Sol

There are many exciting new developments on the Costa del Sol, but it can be difficult to keep up with the latest news, understand the building process in Spain, and find out which location and building project match your needs and desires.

Luckily, we love to share our knowledge here at Mojo Estates!

We have made a small guide of five things to consider when buying a new development, a list of some interesting new developments that are worth keeping an eye on, and, of course, three of Mojo’s favourite projects on the coast. This way, you save time and effort researching and hopefully avoid making big and expensive mistakes when buying a new development project on the Costa del Sol.

Three of Mojo’s favourite new developments

We always stay up-to-date with the latest housing projects and investment opportunities on the Costa del Sol so that we can advise our clients in the best possible way. But we also cannot help it! It is an extremely interesting and impressive housing market, so we cannot hold back our curiosity.

We often see homes that blow us away and are impossible to forget again. Some of our favourite new developments, which have really made an impression on us, are Palo Alto in Marbella, Las Lomas del Higuerón in Fuengirola, and Royal Palms in La Cala de Mijas. These projects are among the most impressive new developments at the moment. They are located in some of the most sought-after neighbourhoods in the region, and they offer buyers resort-style living. Resort-style living is an attractive concept, where you live in a private complex with facilities otherwise found in luxury hotels. Let us have a closer look at Mojo’s top three new development projects!

Palo Alto in Marbella

Palo Alto is a lifestyle destination located in a beautiful green area in Ojén, just a few minutes from Marbella. This project offers a unique combination of modern design and natural surroundings. The concept gives you a feeling of luxury resort hospitality and residential living. Palo Alto has 50 hectares of land, but they will only build on 20% of the land. That way, property owners are ensured to have lovely green surroundings.

The villas and apartments are all built using sustainable materials and feature large windows that let in plenty of natural light. The development also boasts a range of fabulous communal facilities, including a gym, spa, cafeteria, lounge, co-working space, and a social club with exciting events.

Las Lomas del Higuerón

Las Lomas del Higuerón is a stunning development situated in the hills above Fuengirola with beautiful views of the Mediterranean Sea. It is in the heart of Costa del Sol, just five minutes from Carvajal beach and Benalmádena centre, 10 minutes from the centre of Fuengirola, 15 minutes from Málaga Airport and just 20 minutes from Marbella.

Las Lomas del Higuerón offers buyers the chance to own a luxurious villa with breathtaking views. The homes are built to the highest standards, with spacious interiors and all the latest mod cons. The projects Lomas 3 and 4 are already built, and Lomas 2 is coming soon, followed by Lomas 5 and 6. The development offers resort-style living with a clubhouse, pool, spa, sports facilities, and a private shuttle bus that drives every hour of every day. All residents of Las Lomas also get a membership to the Higuerón club for life and a platinum card that gives you free access to everything the first year. This truly is an invitation to live your dream life!

Royal Palms in La Cala de Mijas

Royal Palms is a new development project in the heart of La Cala de Mijas, consisting of 69 apartments and penthouse apartments with 1-3 bedrooms and spectacular sea views. La Cala de Mijas is a charming town with a nice long sandy beach, shops, supermarkets, cosy bars and restaurants. La Cala de Mijas is a popular choice for families and golfers, as it is a calm, relaxing, rural area with several impressive golf courses. In Royal Palms, you are in a natural area but still close to a town with all the necessary facilities and near to the two bigger cities of Marbella and Fuengirola.

This development is modern, luxurious, secure, and spacious, with green natural surroundings, landscaped gardens, an infinity-edge beach pool, a play area for kids, a co-working space, and a gym. The apartments themselves are beautifully designed, with high-end finishes and all the latest amenities. The developers behind the projects have launched many award-winning developments, so you can expect an innovative, first-class resort-style community!

You do not have to win the lottery to afford an excellent new development like this one in Royal Palms and access to the luxurious Costa del Sol lifestyle!

We have great news for you! It is possible for almost everyone to buy and own a luxury home on the Costa del Sol with our modern concept Mojo Sharing! You can buy a holiday home in Royal Palms for just one-eight of the normal price by sharing the property with seven other owners, where you each get the rights to use the home more than six weeks a year. And we even offer 80% financing, so you just need 20% of your share to own a magnificent luxury property.

Whether you are looking for a luxury villa in a prestigious golf resort, a modern apartment with stunning sea views, or a sustainable property in a secluded location, there is something for everyone on the Costa del Sol.

The View Marbella

Another new development generating a lot of buzz is The View Marbella. Located just a few minutes from the centre of Marbella, this development with circular apartments has stunning 300° open views over the Mediterranean sea and the surrounding mountains. The project consists of 49 exclusive residential homes in seven iconic buildings. The apartments comprise 2-4 bedrooms with huge terraces and an overall beautiful design, high-end finishes, and all the latest mod cons.

Mirador del Paraíso in Benahavís

If you are looking for something a little more secluded, Mirador del Paraíso might be something for you. This development is situated in the hills above Estepona in the idyllic Andalusian white village of Benahavís. It offers breathtaking views of the Mediterranean and the surrounding countryside. The properties are all within a gated community with 24-hour security and resort facilities such as access to the exclusive clubhouse, green areas and small lakes.

5 things to consider when buying a new development project

Buying a new development can be an exciting and rewarding experience, but it is important to do your due diligence and take certain factors into account before making a purchase.

1) First and foremost, it is essential to work with a reputable real estate agency that has experience in the local market and can provide you with expert guidance throughout the buying process.

2) Researching the developer and builder behind the development project is also recommended to ensure they have a good track record and reputation for quality work.

3) Location, location, location. Whether you want to buy a new development as a second residence, property investment or holiday rental home, it is crucial to investigate the area. Consider factors such as proximity to amenities, distance to the beach, orientation and views, transport links, and prices of the other properties in the area and the local community.

4) Before making an offer, it is essential to review the building plans, specifications, and any other documentation related to the development to ensure that it meets your needs and expectations. It is also a good idea to visit the actual building site and view any show homes or model units to get a sense of the quality of the finishes and the layout of the property.

5) Finally, you must have all the necessary financial and legal information. You should not make any reservations and pre-payments without having the whole picture. This is where you can end up making costly mistakes! It can sometimes be surprisingly difficult to get all the details but do not give up! Try to figure out any deposits, taxes, and fees associated with the purchase. Working with a real estate company that offers financial and legal advice can help you navigate these complexities and ensure that you are making a sound investment.
