 The real estate market in Tenerife
  Tenerife`s temperate climate, vibrant nightlife and relaxed pace of life have been drawing visitors to its shores for decades, making it one of the UK`s most popular holiday destinations. For those seeking a second home, the island capital of the Canaries also packs in more than its fair share of advantages, winning hands down over the dismal gloominess of life back home all year round.

The real estate market in Tenerife....
It may be a part of Spain, but lying 65 miles off the coast of West Africa, the feel of Tenerife is distinctly sub-tropical. The island`s fertile north, somewhat wetter and more humid than the South, is a land of misty pine forests and tropical vegetation. Here the capital Santa Cruz is a haven for shopping with a host of historical sights and museums to explore. From the centre of the island rises the Teide national park, a landscape of amazing cliffs and rock formations, whose volcanic summit, topped with snow in the winter months, has become the island`s trademark. Across the hot, arid South stretches a seemingly endless expanse of desert-like wilderness reminiscent of a lunar landscape. This is where the most popular tourist hotspots lie, at the lively resorts of Playa de las Americas, Los Cristianos and the beaches of the Costa Adeje.

Although the resident population of Tenerife barely falls short of one million, this figure increases more than fivefold each year with the arrival of visitors from across Europe and beyond, making it the busiest holiday destination in the archipelago. The age old ingredients of sun, sea and sand, the ultimate antidote to stress, are found in abundance in Tenerife so it`s little wonder thousands of British people have made their homes here. Despite a growing demand for holiday homes on what is a small island, prices have remained extremely competitive here compared with mainland Spain. With substantially warmer winters here than on the mainland, property owners can also enjoy the advantage of a longer letting season if they decide to rent out their property.

Aside from the obvious appeal of its sandy beaches, tempting restaurants and cosmopolitan nightlife, Tenerife has so much dramatic landscape to explore that it`s almost criminal not to get out and enjoy the great outdoors. The ocean beckons with opportunities to enjoy dolphin watching, scuba diving and fishing, while the mountainous interior is the perfect location for walking, horse riding or quad biking. For the adventurous there`s always something more challenging on offer, no matter what your level of expertise, whether you enjoy exploring volcanic caves, perhaps a spot of abseiling, or even trying your hand at canyoning.

With regular flights to Tenerife South Reina Sofia airport available from all major UK airports with all the well-known budget airlines, investing in property here has never been more appealing. Anyone interested in buying a second home in Tenerife should take heed of advice to research all possible locations very seriously rather than simply opting for a home in the resort where they have stayed on holiday. It`s certainly worth taking a thorough tour of the island to uncover its most spectacular locations, ranging from seafront clifftops to remote mountain villages, as well as to appreciate the amazing variety of property styles on offer. Your viewing trip needn`t cost the earth, in fact a cheap holiday in Playa de las Americas (CLICK HERE FOR INFO) would provide you with the base you need to explore at your leisure, taking advantage of local estate agents LOS ABRIGOS PROPERTIES who are always on hand to arrange property viewings.
