Why People Are Investing In Spain

Mar 2, 2008
When someone speaks of Spain, most people will feel a sense of relaxation, warmth and envisage sun, sea and beautiful white sand. This is a country brightly lit with a multitude of colours, exotic dishes and a very vibrant culture. Along with the impressive history, which includes its impressive artists, churches, cathedrals and monuments, Spanish villas and properties are also thriving. Many people, mainly British, Scandinavian and German, are buying up what is available and turning them into their own home or keeping it as a healthy long-term investment plan.

Spanish villas are amongst the most popular investment, which is why they are slowly creeping up in market pricing. What is it about these villas in particular that are attracting so many potential buyers (including first-time buyers)? Not only is Spain the country that many people of various cultures choose to migrate to, but it is also an opportunity for people to make sound investment in and build upon for their own development project.

It is a renowned fact that Spain has gained its reputation for having the most reliable, affordable and safest real estate service in Europe. Spanish villas have increased in demand making it a lucrative and excellent business prospect. Most of the villas built are almost always situated near or next to local amenities, easy to reach towns, accessible public transportation and nearby areas that attract plenty of tourists (useful for people looking to make money out of their chosen villa).

There is also the added bonus of the villa being built with large bedrooms, en-suite bathrooms, new mod-con accessories for newly designed kitchens and equipped with air conditioning. The property itself is also beautifully furnished with new sofas and dining accessories. The real luxury comes from the brilliant bedroom views and easy access to the beaches. With this in mind, visitors or residence can even take a dip in the privately built swimming pool, or take a leisurely stroll along the large terraces.

People looking to invest in a neat property will be rest assured that their investment will result in a tidy return, within a short period of time. As Spain is a popular holiday destination for many people, it is likely that the villa itself will be in demand for short or long-term letting. Purchasing prices can range from as little as 20 000 Euros (depending on whether there will be work needed on the building) to over a million Euros for the more serious investors. Some investors may rent out rooms just to cover the mortgage costs; others prefer to make a profit on their property.

With any prospective investment, comes the necessity to do your research. Those looking to buy a property in Spain, and know very little about the area, may find it beneficial to learn more and read up about the culture, level of tourism during different seasons and calculate costs of maintenance.

It would be advisable to also gain knowledge of the local area, the average to maximum rental prices, furnishing and nearby entertainment/attractions. First time buyers very often do not know what they are spending their money on with a worrying number of people neglecting to research - you do not want to fall into that bracket.
