A better quality of life
Spain is certainly a welcoming country for Brits looking to retire abroad. According to the Spanish Ministry of Employment and Social Security, there are 275,558 British residents in Spain, though other estimates put this figure considerably higher. The plentiful sunshine, excellent value food and drink, pristine golf courses and golden beaches have all served to attract plenty of foreigners, many of whom are retirees looking to live overseas in order to achieve a better quality of life than their pension could afford them in the UK. The fact that Spain has one of the best healthcare systems in the world is an important factor that also comes into play.
Property prices are of course key for those looking to head overseas to enjoy their retirement. According to Nestoria’s March 2016 figures, the average property price in Spain across all regions is €139,924. That’s about £116,338 at today’s exchange rate (although the recent Brexit decision means that this is subject to a great deal of variation at the time of publishing this information!). In the UK, the average home costs £200,251 according to Nationwide, so retirees can get nearly twice as much for their money when buying in Spain.
