The real estate market in Hendaye
This seaside resort of 17,000 inhabitants is also a dynamic border town, separated from Spain by the Bidasoa River. It differs from neighboring municipalities on many points: a higher housing tax (24%), a lower property tax (23%), more social housing (12%), fewer owners (but 60% all the same ) and many more second homes (38%). If the population density is also much higher, large areas of the territory are occupied by marinas and fishing ports and two rapidly developing activity zones. The average annual household income is much lower than that of the surrounding towns (25,300 euros) since Hendaye mainly houses families of employees and workers and fewer retirees. Note that nearly half of the inhabitants work in the town. It has a large capacity for tourist accommodation and its housing stock is mainly made up of apartments and townhouses, whether in condominium or not. The disparities between neighborhoods are less marked than elsewhere and its geographical position is unique. The vacant housing rate (4%) is uniform throughout its territory and the trend in real estate prices in Hendaye is favorable to buyers of both apartments and houses. Luxury real estate is also present in Hendaye, particularly on the heights and the seafront where the price per square meter of living space is relatively high.
