Why NOW is the Perfect Time to Invest in Buildings in Barcelona

 

Casamona’s Forecast:

As specialists in Real Estate in Barcelona, we at Casamona have an abundance of expertise in the current Real Estate market. We believe that now is the perfect time to invest in buildings in Barcelona. With the economy at an all-time loss, people are selling apartments for a lower price than in 2019, thus, now it is a buyer’s market. Investing now would be the most profitable time, as the economy is expected to significantly increase in the coming years. Barcelona offers luxury, sophistication, culture and art, making it both a popular tourist hotspot and an ideal place to live. Located in the heart of the Mediterranean, it not only has the benefit of the incomparable climate but also fantastic transport links throughout Europe and the rest of the world. With more and more tech companies moving here and the fact that Barcelona is the freelancer capital of Europe, more and more people want to move here to improve their lifestyle. It is guaranteed that if you buy a building, the capital gains would be great.

 

According to Caixa Bank, Licences for new builds are forecast a sharp fall this year by 35% due to the high level of uncertainty.  This makes new developments cost more and decisions to start new construction projects are being delayed protecting the economy.

 

However, for the rest of 2021, Caixa forecast a recovery from last year’s significant drop in GDP. But, because of such a rapid fall in GDP, we don’t expect the housing price to fall as much because its a variable that has a great deal of inertia and even though demand might reduce a great deal this year, the sales prices will take longer to adjust and are less likely to fall as much. So, we forecast that whilst the prices have gone down in Barcelona, we recommend buying Buildings now, as it is guaranteed that the economy will improve, and prices will rise.

 

Casamona foresees that the real estate sector, in the long run, will be less affected by the pandemic than other industries such as tourism and of the last property cycle with the 2008 crash. The robust position that the sector was in before the pandemic suggests that it will bounce back far quicker, and thus, it gives us the impression that investing in buildings now, while the purchase prices are low would be highly lucrative.

We Have many different investment options for buildings in Barcelona:

 

 

 

Why NOW is the Perfect Time to Invest in Buildings in Barcelona 2 Why NOW is the Perfect Time to Invest in Buildings in Barcelona

1. Buy to let

 

One option we recommend is ‘buy-to-let’. This is an attractive option because you have full control over the whole building, the community fees and can choose which tenants you want and the prices that you want to charge. You wouldn’t have to put any work into renovating it and just fill it with durable, stylish and affordable furniture. (get inspiration from this blog). Therefore, the ROI would be high and make this a successful investment. Click here to view buildings for sale.

 

2. Buy to renovate to let

 

This is another even more profitable option. You can buy a building in a great area such as Eixample, with old classic Catalan features but they need lots of work. This would sell at a low price and you could then renovate the whole building to your style to make ‘luxury’ apartments for rent. This is a great option because it gives you the freedom of style, finish and price of the renovation you want. It is also good because you can design the apartment to fit with the trends of today. Because there are a few units in each building you would be able to bulk buy materials and use affordable but experienced contractors that we can recommend to you. It would then encourage people to come and rent an excellent apartment in a great area, with good ROI potential.

3. Buy to renovate to sell

Similarly, you can buy a building in a great area such as Eixample, with old classic Catalan features but needs lots of work. This would sell at a low price and you could then renovate the whole building to make similar ‘luxury’ apartments. This is a great option because it gives you the freedom of style, finish and price of the renovation you want. It is also a beneficial choice because you can design the apartment to your liking while maintaining some of the popular original features.

Buying to renovate to sell has many of the same advantages as buying to renovate to let, but the investor is able to choose when they believe that the market has sufficiently recovered to deliver the greatest profit.

4. Buy already rented

 

One excellent option would be to buy a building with units that are already rented out to tenants with assured profit and a steady, passive income. We have many buildings for sale with this option in Barcelona and it is sure to create both a rolling income but a greater ROI when you decide to sell the building in the future.

5. Buy Hotels in Barcelona:

 

Hotels are selling at bargain-basement prices at the moment. Therefore, we believe that now is the perfect time to invest and buy a hotel. The tourism industry has definitely taken a downturn since the beginning of the pandemic. But, with a positive outlook with good results from the vaccines, the tourist economy is sure to bounce back even more quickly. There are even current examples of developers and hotel owners transforming their hotels into short – term rental options, to adapt to the current economic climate. (read more here)
