Spain is the most popular overseas property destination for English-speaking internet users, new research has concluded.
Analysis by Globaledge that used the foreign property searches made on Google during September of this year found Spain and its towns and regions to be most popular among web surfers.
France was the second most popular choice for those browisng for overseas property inspiration. However, it was beaten by Spain by a ratio of over two to one.
"These results suggest Spanish property is considerably more popular than previously thought," managing director of Globaledge, Ashley Rigg, explained, noting that they proved France and Spain are not on an equal footing in terms of desirability among buyers.
Among the most popular Spanish property searches were Tenerife, Mallorca and Costa Blanca, areas which may appeal to those thinking of buying a home in the country.
Palma, the capital of Mallorca, was recently praised for its "great location" and "fantastic climate" in an article in Times, which listed potential locations for overseas buyers.
