Urbincasa, a lifetime by the sea

If there’s one word that captures the spirit of Urbincasa to perfection is “Mediterranean“, and since we started this journey in 1967 our life has always been linked to the sea.

To this date we have designed and built more than 8.000 homes by our beloved Mediterranean Sea. Exceptional locations where we have developed homes for all kinds of families with a clear goal: for all our clients to enjoy the best quality of life with the backdrop of the Mediterranean.

At Urbincasa we believe the sea is not just a landscape, but a source of infinite inspiration, serenity and beauty.

That’s how we feel it and that’s how we present it in the name of many of our constructions, which we naturally named after a sea that captivates us and the nautical life that emanates from it: Narval, Aguamarina, Las Drizas, Atarazana, Noray, Jaloque, Seascape Resort, Seascape Blue, Arrecife… The trademark of the Mediterranean is present in each of our urban developments.

Location and dream landscapes

With this idea we have expanded, from our urban planning in Cartagena, building iconic residential neighbourhoods throughout many decades, to Alicante, where we built one of our most memorable projects: the Plan Parcial Bahía of Alicante, in a residential area known as Residencial Urbanova.

At Urbincasa we choose the locations of our projects meticulously, hence our fascination with the Mediterranean. It’s not merely about offering stunning views of the sea but about presenting our clients with an unmatched lifestyle.

From a unique and privileged landscape, climate, services and security to other appealing qualities such as the Mediterranean culture and gastronomy that make the acquisition of one of our properties into a guaranteed profitable investment.

Quality of life as a pillar

In the 80s we continued expanding along the Costa Blanca and Costa Cálida, with the acquisition of different areas of land in Campoamor, Santa Pola and La Manga, where we built one of the most important complexes of the time, Los Ibicencos.

For each and every one of our developments, we strived to capture and encapsulate the elegance of the Mediterranean and create communities where quality of life was core to the experience.

Each project we embark on is designed with the idea of improving the life of those who choose to call Urbincasa their home. From green areas, recreational spaces, pools, gyms, playgrounds, coworking spaces, etc. We make sure that every detail contributes to a full and satisfactory life.

Promotions that make history

Along the years we have had the privilege to participate in projects that have left a mark in the history of real estate. Thus, in the 90s we were a marker in the business, investing in the Plan Parcial El Faro of Mazarrón.

Furthermore, we have similarly worked to maintain leadership in Cartagena and consolidate our presence in Alicante, with complexes in Aguamarina or Aloe, the latter an “emblematic” promotion that marked our arrival into the beautiful beach of San Juan.

On the following decades we continued our string of successes building best-selling complexes in Las Drizas, in Cabo de Palos, or Seacolors, Noray and more recently Jaloque, in the Beach of San Juan; Seascape Resort and Seascape Blue in Finestrat; Seagardens in Campoamor and Residencial Los Flamencos in Las Salinas de la Manga, which won the 2022 APIRM Award for best tourist-real estate development.

This complex, which was designed under strict environmental regulation, is perfectly integrated into the habitat and offers panoramic views of the sea as well as unprecedented community areas such as chill out, swimming pool, volleyball court, spa, etc.

From Costa Blanca to Costa del Sol

With almost 60 years’ experience in the real estate promotion business, we have learned that building homes goes far and beyond the creation of spaces and structures. It’s about building dreams, establishing communities and contributing to the wellbeing of present and future generations. Our   commitment to excellence continues to be unbreakable and every new project we take is an opportunity to surpass our own expectations.

That’s why we are embarking on a new “Mediterranean adventure” with the development of the promotion of two new memorable complexes in Costa del Sol (Málaga): Mãla Kai Resort, in Estepona, and Residencial Arrecife, in Casares Costa.

An expansion that responds to the very nature of our company, propelling us to search for exceptional locations to create unique homes that represent the beauty and the elegance of the Mediterranean and where our clients can discover life by the sea like they never experienced it before.

 

 

 

 

Why buy a home on the Costa del Sol?

If you are thinking about buying a home abroad, Spain’s Costa del Sol offers a range of attractive benefits that could make this decision a rewarding and very financially profitable experience. Some of the greatest interest in buying a second home in Spain is coming from the American market.

Urbincasa specialises in Spanish Mediterranean real estate, and we are going to give you 8 reasons to buy a home in a sun-soaked hotspot like the Costa del Sol.

  •  Safety and quality of life

Spain provides some of the best quality of life in the world. In fact, according to the InterNations platform, the country is the second best place to live in the world. Safety and excellent quality of life are some of the main reasons to choose to live in Spain.

  •  Culture and lifestyle

Spain is known for its rich culture, delicious food and relaxed pace of life. Its Mediterranean lifestyle and climate will make you want to spend most of the day outdoors.

The Costa del Sol offers a perfect balance between modern living and traditional Spanish charm. You will experience a unique mix of the old and the new.

  •  Excellent climate

The Costa del Sol’s sunny climate for most of the year is another of its biggest attractions. With more than 300 days of sunshine a year, you will enjoy a warm, pleasant climate, making this region an ideal place to escape the cold winter in many parts of the world

  • Attractive investments

The real estate market on the Costa del Sol is very attractive and diverse. Properties, from beachside apartments to luxurious villas, can be an excellent long-term investment. Prices may also be more affordable than those in certain areas of the United States or other European cities.

  • Services and excellent connections

The Costa del Sol is strategically located, with excellent flight connections and modern infrastructure. Travelling from the United States is relatively easy, with direct flights and a well-developed transport network in the region.

Two international airports, Malaga and Gibraltar, offer daily flights to major European cities and New York.

  • More affordable cost of living

Spain offers a high standard of living at an affordable cost compared to some areas of the United States. On the Costa del Sol, you will benefit from a wide range of services, from quality health care to excellent educational facilities and bilingual schools.

  • Retirement opportunities

Many Americans consider the Costa del Sol an ideal place to retire. The relaxed environment, high-quality health care and excellent leisure opportunities make this region a very appetising retirement destination.

  • Special tax system for digital nomads

That’s right. Digital nomads with their tax residence in Spain may significantly benefit under the so-called “Beckham Law”, a regulation allowing people to pay tax at a fixed rate of 24% on wages up to €600,000, and 47% on any amount that exceeds this limit, annually. This tax system is more advantageous than that of ordinary tax residents, who face progressive rates that can sometimes exceed 50%.

In short, buying a property on the Costa del Sol not only provides you with a second residence in a spectacular location but also a smart investment and the opportunity to experience a unique, enriching lifestyle.

Residential Los Flamencos. Work in progress March 2020. The construction of our promotions is in operation in order to fulfil the commitments acquired with our customers and supplier companies.

 

Did you know that Urbincasa’s History is closely bound to Licor 43?

True! We started our path in 1967 hand in hand with the Zamora Company, owner of well-known and prestigious international brands such as Licor 43, Bodegas Ramón Bilbao and Mar de Frades. 

The entrepreneurial spirit of the founders of Zamora Company led them to diversify their business activity in the area of urban development and construction. It was started by the acquisition of some pieces of land in Cartagena, giving life to numerous historic promotions in the city (there is no neighbour in the city who doesn’t have a relative or friend that hasn’t lived in a Urbincasa’s flat), to little by little purchase new land along the Mediterranean coast.

This way, in “the crazy eighties”, we landed in Campoamor, Santa Pola and La Manga. And in the 1990s we landed for the first time in San Juan Beach, in Alicante, where we have already built 6 residential developments with almost 600 homes under the same signature of commitment, quality and trust and have been a sales success. From 2015 we have favourable wind and we keep on building in Cartagena and areas of the coast of Murcia, Alicante, Benidorm and Mazarrón

“We like designing and build homes in which we’d love to live”

Last 20th June, the newspaper La Verdad collected an interview to our general manager Francisco Cervantes, in the special section “Real Estate”. We reproduce the complete text.

With more than eleven active promotions of houses, Urbincasa is a firm that is characterised by its professional and innovative character. These qualities are the two key principles of Francisco José Cervantes, CEO of the company that has made this firm from Cartagena a model in the field of design and construction. Since it opened its doors, Urbincasa has delivered more than 7,000 homes, in unique locations, to all kinds of clients.

Talking about Urbincasa is talking about a solid project, of a brand of well-known prestige. How is it possible to become a model in the real estate sector in all the Spanish South East?

With work, commitment and a great future vision. We have been working in the South East coast for more than fifty years, offering dream houses in privileged locations. We like designing and building houses where and how we’d love to live, and we always try to be quality leaders in our sector. With more than 7,000 homes delivered, we feel very proud to say that we are real experts and guide in the real estate business.

How many active promotions do you have?

Currently we are working on up to 11 different promotions in prime locations from Benidorm, Playa de San Juan, Alicante, Campoamor, to Mar Menor, Cartagena and Mazarrón. More than 1,200 houses of all kind of typology and prices.

How has Urbincasa been able to transform the real estate sector in the last years? 

By adding passion in all what we do. We encourage curiosity and investigation; we give our team a great freedom to suggest improvements, new systems, innovative equipment… Our final goal is not only to build the best home for our clients but also to protect the profitability of their investment by choosing the best and most demanded locations.

We want to highlight that our Quality and Innovation department, which is in charge of controlling that, during the house construction, the design and quality standards defined are fulfilled and at the same time they control that each home is built according to the personalization instructions of every customer.

This reflects, at the end, in the satisfaction and trust of our customers. Thus, in a recent survey carried out between the months of May and June 2019, 95% of them would recommend us to their friends with a probability higher than 9 out of 10. In fact, more than a third of the sales of Urbincasa come from recommendations of former customers.

As you say, innovation has been also a key element in the trajectory of Urbincasa along its history. What can you tell us about this?

Yes, we have always been pioneers in the sector. More than a decade ago we were experimenting with the first virtual reality glasses of the market, designed a virtual showhouse and opened the doors, then, of the emerging social networks.

Not long after that, we added the first interactive shop window. Through a smart plastic which detected the movement of the fingers, any person interested could handle in a big plasm screen behind the glass of our offices.

Nowadays we are carrying out immersive projects with well-known universities and at the same time we accelerate in the digital transformation. This way, we have in our premises from a multidimensional laboratory where the client and their families experience the life in their new home to our recent interactive table where, emulating the cinematographic Minority Report, our commercial assistants explain the customer all the characteristics of their future home.

An important part of the operations closed in the last months come from foreign citizens. Why do you think they choose Spain as destination of their investments?

Currently, we can estate that Urbincasa is “importing” citizens from all parts of the world to our Region. They are citizens that choose the Spanish South East not only to retire and enjoy the rest of their lives a unique environment, but also there are more and more working families, with highly technological jobs that develop most part of their activity from home (investment analyst, specialists in Big Data, digital marketing professionals, design engineers…) are moving to live in our area providing population and wealth at the same time that they break with the seasonal nature of the coast areas.

 

Costa Cálida consolidates as one of favourite areas of the foreigners to buy a house

So is said by the newspaper El Economista in a piece of news publish last July: “Costa Cálida keeps winning positions as one of the greatest destinations to enjoy Mediterranean climate and Spanish gastronomy”.

It is not strange, as with more than 250 kilometres of beach with fine sand, hidden coves and natural parks, our region is one of the greatest destinations for diving and an ideal place to practice outdoor activities and sports such as golf, sailing and water skiing. If we add to this the great gastronomic offer based on the Mediterranean diet and good weather all the year round… we have a privileged place to enjoy an excellent quality of life.

The foreigners who have acquired a house in the area during the last months are well aware of this. So, as it is published in this newspaper, there is a register (between January and March) of 850 purchases in the Region of Murcia by foreigners, the 20.15% of the total of acquisitions done by this type of investors in Spain, a percentage that has been growing a lot during the last years.
