The property market has stabilized in Spain and in Tenerife in general. House prices rose 3.4% in 2014, but are yet much lower than their peaks of 2008. For the UK market, buying on the island has increased as steadier pace because of the increased Sterling over the Euro. This have been even more helped by a more resilient UK economy, meaning UK expats with more money to spend in Tenerife. House prices are still much lower in country regions such as the La Orotava valley. In Santa Ursula also the proprerty prices are much lower than in the south of Tenrife or in touristic places such as Puerto de la Cruz

But I guess it depends on what you look for in a holiday and also your personality type. Each to their own we might say!
