Pure Living Properties has compiled a comprehensive guide on the major projects currently under construction in the Golden Triangle

What is a branded residence?

Many clients still ask this question, and at Pure Living Properties, we’ve aimed to clear up all the uncertainties about this trend that is shifting the paradigm of the luxury real estate market and also positioning the Costa del Sol as a leading international destination.

This market report, ‘Branded Residences in Marbella’, analyses and compares the projects being developed in the Golden Triangle that have captured the attention of investors worldwide.

Branded residences are residential properties developed in association with international luxury brands, ranging from fashion designers to automotive brands or premium hotel chains. In the branded residences in Marbella, the brand’s involvement goes far beyond style and design; their essence is in every detail and the top-level services these residences will offer.

What does the branding include?

The extent of the brand’s involvement in the residential complex varies depending on the project, but in all the branded residences in Marbella, this partnership extends beyond mere aesthetic or decorative elements. Buyers are acquiring limited editions officially endorsed by some of the world’s most exclusive brands, homes with unique services that greatly enhance the investment’s profitability.

The commitment of the brands in the branded residences in Marbella projects is primarily based on ensuring design, quality, and that the living experience in these properties accurately reflects their essence and prestige, thus elevating the value and exclusivity of the residences.

In terms of premium services, Tierra Viva stands out particularly, where buyers of these villas will gain direct access to the Lamborghini VIP experience.

Is a Signature Villa More Expensive?

Generally, a signature villa is between 10% and 25% more expensive than a standard villa with similar features. This price increase can vary depending on the exclusivity of the brand and the associated design details.

Investing in branded residences or ‘branded homes’ guarantees success due to the quality and exclusivity associated with high-level brands, as well as the potential for appreciation and the prestige of owning a unique and distinguished property.

“At Pure Living Properties, we have a specialised team that supports our clients throughout the entire process, providing the necessary advice on each transaction,” comments Javier Nieto, CEO of the leading real estate agency in the premium and luxury market in Marbella.
