Discover how the real estate sector has adapted in order to make the search easier for those who are interested in purchasing a new home. Whether you’re looking for an online tour, an energy efficient home or enough space to survive another lockdown, AEDAS has it!
Trends in real estate move forward with the times just as they do in any other sector, and in the present climate, there are a few aspects that have slightly changed how people look for their homes. Read on and find out more about how technology, sustainability and space have made a difference!
The way buyers choose a home is changing
Investing in property has always been a wise choice, and real estate will always be a relevant sector, even if developers might need to adapt to the new needs of their clients. Because of the lockdown caused by the pandemic the buyers’ outlook towards property has changed slightly, bringing aspects such as technology, sustainability and space to the top of the list when looking for a new or second home.
Using technology to view the property
Nowadays technology is a large part of our daily lives, we carry it in our pockets, we use it for work, when travelling or even during our free time. It is only logical that we have incorporated it to how we view properties, especially overseas. Estate agents have been using pictures for a long time, but now some have begun to use a new tool to show their developments: virtual reality.
At AEDAS Homes, we have gone a step further with what we call ‘Online Live Tours,’ where we have embraced virtual reality without losing personal contact with prospective buyers. Anyone interested in purchasing a property in Spain with us only needs to request a live tour, and one of our expert advisers will take you on a virtual visit of the property and its facilities, as well as answering any questions you may have; all you need is a smartphone, tablet or computer. This is a great tool for those who are looking for a second home in another country, you can do it all from the comfort of your living room!
Environmentally-friendly homes take the spotlight
A trend that was fast becoming popular before the pandemic was sustainability and power efficiency. Developers have realised in the last few years that what they build is a reflection of society, one that has become increasingly aware of the importance of looking after the environment. In fact, according to a study by PwC on the emerging trends in European real estate for 2020 , the impact of climate change is one of the top trends of the sector, and it likely will be for the foreseeable future.
At AEDAS Homes we have taken this to heart, and have planned and built most of our developments with energy efficient features and sustainable designs. These are perfect to make the most of the mild Mediterranean climate and thus reduce the carbon footprint, while enjoying the comforts of a holiday or second home.
Space is the new must-have
When looking for a home, everyone takes notice of the available space, after all, the more the better. However, in the past many would forego space in exchange for a great location near the city centre, for instance.
Nowadays, this is changing. After lockdown, we have all learnt a lot about how we deal with the space we live in. Consequently, many homebuyers have become interested in having more space; especially those who will need to work from their own office at home. What about you? Did you realise you needed more square metres? Maybe you want a garden? Or a bigger kitchen? Or perhaps more natural light? AEDAS Homes has properties that cater to any need, no matter what you’re looking for.
