At the moment, house prices per square metre in Barcelona are much more expensive. So much so that, in the historical part of the city, prices reach around € 3,500. But in Terrassa, they range around € 2,000, which is almost half. You can, therefore, choose to find a house with similar features at a lower price and take advantage of a bigger property with many amenities.
Thanks to the property boom that took place a few decades ago in Terrassa, this town now benefits from recently built homes. What's more, the vast majority of these homes have their own garages. This will allow you to park your car in a secure place whenever you get home and, if one day you want to park in the street, you will easily find space without much cost to you.
Buying a home in Terrassa goes hand in hand with tranquility and relaxation. However, this does not mean that Terrassa has no events or places to go to in order to enjoy a nice dinner and drinks with your partner or friends. In fact, every year, this town hosts a popular jazz festival with more than 30 years of history.
Terrassa has a variety of public and private hospitals as well as educational centres. Therefore, regardless of which service you require, you will always be located close to all the facilities that you need.
