First of all during last month we had quite a bit of bad winds that have done a lot of damage. Some damage included the walkways on the Paseo. The council after deciding how wide they can have it and which parts it will affect have started fixing it back up. They are hoping to be finished by Easter.
If you are a fan of computer games then you may want to get hold of the Sky Line Skaters. It is a downloadable mobile app game. Marbella and Puerto Banus will feature as level 1 on the game. It involves a skateboarder who can travel around old town and various parts of Marbella and Puerto Banus. With more than 20 million downloads already it is a huge promotion for the area.
In property news the figures from the Spanish Notaries show that sales in 2015 were up 8.6% more than the previous year. In January this year it shows a tremendous 26.6% more sales than last year. Also it shows that average prices rose by 1.9% and in Marbella we are already seeing that properties of a lower price are much harder to find than they were last year. It is very difficult to find a bargain and if you are looking to buy a property then now is the time rather than waiting and risk missing out. We are having cases of people visiting properties and then taking a couple of days to think about it, when they come back to reserve, it has already been reserved by someone else. So we can definitely see much more movement. You need to move quick if you are serious about buying something now to avoid disappointment.

Also just to let you know if you currently own a property in Spain and rent it out. There are new laws with regards to renting your property so it would be a good idea to speak to your lawyer so they can inform you on what you need to do.
