Quartiers Properties operates in Spain in the province of Málaga on the Costa del Sol, a market shown by a number of studies to be the fastest-growing property market in Spain. Growth in the region is due to a combination of increasing domestic demand, the region’s climate with over 320 days of sunshine a year, excellent national and international communications, and technological developments enabling more people to live in the region while retaining links to friends, family and work in their home country. Quartiers is active in two main segments; Property Value Creation and Property Development. Both business areas aim to generate value in the current property portfolio in different ways. In the Property Development segment this is done by developing carefully designed concepts for villas and apartments, which are then marketed and sold. The Property Value Creation segment focuses on transforming underperforming properties in a way that leverages each property’s unique characteristics, to enable a higher valuation when the property is either sold or revalued for refinancing on improved loan terms.
