Various projects have been put out to tender with a 1.8 milion euro budget for improvements in Marbella town streets. The mayor, Jose Bernal, said the works are aimed at improving an area which has been neglected over recent years and will be a significant boost to its development. The works are scheduled to last from five to six months.
Marbella is amongst the favourite places for property buyers in search of luxury homes, according to a new real estate report. Sales of Marbella properties of more than 900,000 euros accounted for 10.7% of all the luxury homes sales in Spain, a doubling over 2014. The highest demand appears to be in the range of 400,000 and 2 million euros.
