The real estate market in Barcelona’s Eixample district has been one of the most stable in the country in recent years, despite the effects of Spain’s considerable economic downturn. In comparison with other parts of the country and more specifically Catalonia where there have been sharp decreases, the real estate markets in Barcelona and the Eixample in general have maintained a certain level of stability amid a series of slight yet controlled price adjustments.
What is clearly evident in the market today is a distinct power shift from the property owner to the buyer regarding who has the upper hand in negotiating prices. Therefore, sellers need to be aware of these changes in the market and adjust to the demands of today’s buyers, while focusing on generating interest in their properties to attract more potential buyers and increase property showings. Most importantly, they must know how to properly close the real estate transaction. At Engel&Völkers Eixample we can assist in every phase of the process responsibly, ethically and professionally.
