Benidorm: The Brighter Way to Invest

If you’re looking for an alternative investment, but want to make sure that your money is channeled into a tried and tested marketplace, then Spain’s BND Levante Group may the solution for you.


One thing is certain in our unpredictable economic times: people always look forward to a great vacation. Spending time relaxing with family and friends in the sunshine, enjoying good food and taking time out from the stresses of daily life. For decades the Spanish coastal resort of Benidorm has been synonymous with exactly this. Benidorm’s position as one of Europe’s most popular vacation destinations is set in stone, which is why BND Levante Group (BND) has made this booming city in Alicante the focus of its investment offering.
BND owns prime real estate across Benidorm, and through its bond scheme, allows groups or individuals to invest in the city’s lucrative vacation rental market in a simple and secure manner. Short-term rentals have become incredibly popular with tourists who enjoy greater freedom and a more personal and comfortable experience. Unlike many hotels, you can spread out, choose when you eat and live like a local. The hand-picked properties that comprise BND’s portfolio provide assured year-round rental returns from visitors looking to enjoy Benidorm’s balmy summers and mellow autumn and winter seasons.
Nobody knows Benidorm better than BND. The company is based in the city and knows its neighborhoods and rental market inside out. BND can even testify to the fact that the city’s tourism and real estate climates remained unaffected by the financial crisis of 2007-14; investment in new property simply continued as usual.

How to invest?

Investing in Benidorm’s thriving vacation rental market has never been easier. Investors purchase bonds online through BND’s website and enjoy assured returns of 8 to 11% per year. The process is hassle-free. There are no mortgages, no need to find tenants; simply an easy and secure investment that gives you a fixed monthly return. As the value of the bond is secured by BND’s prime real estate portfolio, the BND Real Estate Bond II is a safe and consistent option for investors of all levels.
The interest you receive depends on the amount of time you invest. Periods of 3,5, or 7 years are available, which generate returns of 8, 9.5 and 11% respectively. If, for example, you invest 10,000 euros in a 5-year bond, you will receive 9.5% annual return for 5 years. The interest is then paid monthly (80 euros in this instance) into your bank account or to your own BND Levante Group debit card. After the chosen period BND will buy back you bond at the price you invested.

Guarantee and security

Demand for short-term vacation rentals in Benidorm is assured. Over the course of a year 85% of the city’s occupants are tourists. All of the properties that BND purchase are situated in prime locations and have a long history of generating substantial rental income. All bond holder funds are delivered to the trust account of a Spanish lawyer who ensures they are invested in strict accordance with BND’s terms and conditions. BND always seeks the very best investment opportunities: the firm doesn’t take risks with its own money, and it won’t take risks with yours. But should BND get into trouble, the bond holders have first rights on the real estate over both the creditors and BND. This provides extra security and ensures bond holders recoup their initial investment.

About bonds 
A bond is a debt security. When you buy a bond, you’re effectively lending money to a company or other entity. In return, the company promises to pay you a fixed rate of interest at scheduled intervals until the end of the loan period. At the end of the loan period your loan principal is returned in full. A company borrowing money directly from its investors can usually pay a higher interest rate than a bank. Bonds are generally regarded as a safer option than stocks, which can go up or down. Unlike stocks, bonds offer predictable, scheduled returns.

Why Benidorm
Bad weather never really occurs in Benidorm, so when you choose to go simply depends on your preferences. From June to September it rarely drops below 20°C with peaks of 30°C in August. Even in December, temperatures average around 12°C, with average highs for the month at 15°C. The city boasts 6 km of beautiful golden beaches stretching from Levante Beach in the east to Poniente Beach in the west. Most consistently achieve Blue Flag standards, are patrolled by lifeguards, and are lined with cafes, restaurants and bars to suit all tastes.

But Benidorm is not all about the beaches; the area is jam-packed with exciting entertainment for all the family. There are jeep tours to explore the spectacular mountains and coastal roads, mountain bike trails and hiking tours. And then there’s the rich and varied nightlife ranging from vibrant nightclubs to tranquil traditional restaurants. Benidorm welcomes visitors all year round, which is why the city is home to such an exciting short-term rental market. It’s also the reason BND Levant Group’s real estate bond is proving such a winner for so many investors around the world.


Interview With Paul Dunn – BND Levante Group CEO

Spanish real estate has become hot property once again, why do you think that is?

“It’s basically the year when it’s all come together. “The Spanish economy is doing well, its banks are healthy, there’s a very investor-friendly legal framework and property is still cheap compared to other European cities.” It’s a far cry from 2008, when investors couldn’t dump Spanish real estate fast enough. The recovery started four years later with a 41 billion-euro ($49 billion) banking-system bailout and is gathering pace as lenders discount and clear out toxic property assets.

Why is Spain number two in the global real estate list for best investment in properties?

Spain’s housing market finally returned to growth in Q1 2016. Spanish house prices had fallen by a total of 41.9% (46.8% inflation-adjusted) from Q4 2007 to Q3 2015, based on figures from TINSA. Demand is now rising strongly. In 2016, the total number of home sales in Spain increased 14% to 457,689 units from the previous year, according to the InstitutoNacional de Estadistica (INE). This rise in transactions was mainly driven by foreigners buying homes on the coast and in cities like Barcelona and on the Costa’s, one of the country’s most popular areas with overseas purchasers. Most foreign homebuyers are Britons, French, Germans, Belgians, Italians and Swedes.

What’s the vacation rental market in Benidorm like at present? Have there been any significant changes as of late that you can tell us about?

The Spanish real estate market is experiencing a new boom, this time in the rental sector. The average rent for new leases has risen 20.9% over the last year, according to leading industry website Idealista. And cities like Benidorm saw record average prices. This is due to a rise in demand, but also to a drop-in supply. That is because many homeowners who had been renting out their properties during the economic slump are now putting them back on the sales market as prices start to pick up again. Added to this is the fact that short-term rentals to tourists has become a more profitable proposition than long-term leases.

What is Benidorm like as a destination? What are its best features? What is special about Levante beach?

If you like a bit of bustle and hustle on your holiday, then you’ll enjoy the energy of the Levante area of Benidorm. Beach, hotel and theme park pleasures by day and the highest concentration of entertainment and clubbing venues in Europe by night. You can just feel the happy atmosphere. The smiling guests of the iconic sky scraper hotels ensure the bar and beach life is always lively and varied. Or, if you just want to relax with family and friends, there are plenty of opportunities for that, including taking in the sun by the pool with a cooling drink in hand.

BND is the only real estate company that offers corporate bonds for investors in Benidorm, why did you decide to move into this market? What makes this market attractive?

Many international real estate investors small and big come when the times are booming and buy anything they can get their hands on. Mostly for to high price and then the real work starts, finding tenants, maintenance and cleaning. because most investors they are not from here and not spend time here all year round, this is the biggest problem to get full occupancy what is needed to get a high return on your investment, add this up a to high price pay for from the beginning and the results are most of the time disappointed. As we know the market, so we not buy the properties first of all to high and it is more easy and cheaper to maintain a group of properties instead of one, as it is for us a day time job and be here all year around the results of full occupancy is much higher, what brings higher ROI per year on the properties then if an investor buy one property alone from abroad.

Why is BND Real Estate Bond ll based only on buying existing short-term vacation rental properties in Levante beach?

Very simple, at the moment we buy an existing property in the first or second line beach in Levante area we can start collect high short-term rental income from day one and this is the reason why we can assure our bondholders/investors we can give this high ROI p.a. and pay out the fixed monthly interest payments.

Do you have any other real estate bonds in the pipeline? What are they and what makes them different?

We plan a different real estate bond end 2018 begin 2019, with this bond we plan to buy in this same area an plot and develop our own skyscraper of at least 20-30 floors and sale this properties, the different for our bondholders with this bond is that this will not give them In the meantime an monthly fixed income but on the end when the project is finished.
