If you do choose to buy, properties in Gibraltar are a great investment and there are a number of new developments in construction. Purchasing property in Gibraltar follows a similar process to the UK.

Depending on how far from the border you live, Gibraltar can also be accessed from Spain by a short walk or some people choose to park across the border and take the short walk or bus into the centre to work.
