For many years now, Spain has been one of the main countries that take into account retired people from both Europe and North America to retire to spend their last years of life. This was demonstrated in the 2018 Global Index of Annual Retirement quoted in the American magazine International Living, in which Spain ranks 9th.

This preference towards Spain is caused by its good climate and the quality of life that the country offers. Some of these inhabitants become residents and begin by renting of a house and then make an investment in the sector of their preference, some in large cities such as Madrid and Barcelona and others in smaller sites such as Alicante

In this sense, one of the favorite sectors to inhabit is the Costa Blanca, named after the Mediterranean coast in the province of Alicante, located southeast of Spain, which in addition to having good weather, beaches and other outstanding geographical aspects, it also allows citizens to have a better quality of life due to its good services.

In addition to this, people over 80 have some dependency. In relation to income, these retirees mostly live with the monthly installment stipulated in the public pension.

This attraction of Spain as a favorite destination to retire specifically in the Costa Blanca sector makes it a real estate investment option, with great possibilities for investors to allow these people to buy a plot and build their house.
