Engel & Völkers Commercial, a division with many possibilities
If you ask people about the type of business Engel & Völkers specialises in, most of them will easily be able to tell you exactly what this real estate agency does. This is possibly because of the exclusive character of the firm and its special dedication to the Premium segment of the market. However, the Commercial division of this company is less known, despite the wide range of services it offers. The tertiary sector is the line of business that Engel & Völkers specialises in, offering all kinds of solutions to companies in Barcelona and surroundings.
Retail, the most sought-after business premises
The retail sector is one of the most dynamic in the Barcelona real estate market, since its evolution is directly related to the economic situation. The city of Barcelona has a wide range of commercial premises available throughout its districts and neighbourhoods. Of course, certain areas are much more sought-after than others, so those who are interested can refer to the Engel & Völkers Barcelona team in order to help them find the most suitable options.
It is also possible to find commercial premises anywhere in the metropolitan area of Ciudad Condal (Vallés Occidental, Baix Llobregat, Maresme ...). In the catalogue of Engel & Völkers there are many business premises for sale and rent as well as existing businesses for transfer.
Offices, the best workspace for a company
It is worth taking into account some factors when it comes to selecting a commercial premise. If you have a company, office premises are highly sought-after and it can be difficult to find vacant ones. The Offices department of our company includes some of the best office complexes in Barcelona, with recently built premises and others that are located in symbolic buildings. The same can be said about the offices that are available both in the city centre and in different locations in the metropolitan area. In both cases, the premises are available for sale and rent.
Industrial, yachts and warehouses with a lot to offer
The business activity in Barcelona is mostly oriented to the broad service sector, but this does not imply that the industry has run out of space. The Engel & Völkers Barcelona team is also responsible for providing companies in the secondary sector the right location next to the big city. In recent years, several industrial businesses in the metropolitan area of Barcelona have experienced huge growth, attracting mainly technology-based industries.
The industrial buildings available in this catalogue of properties enjoy modern facilities and are located in industrial warehouses that boast excellent road networks and other transport links with Barcelona. It should be noted that Catalonia is Spain's biggest contributor to the economy as it creates 20% of the country's GDP. In fact, this autonomous community has the highest number of factories in Spain. This makes Barcelona an exceptional city to move to, with many properties for sale and for rent.
The Investment section, investing with the help and advice of experts
One of the great strengths of the Engel & Völkers Barcelona team is that it doesn't just manage properties and develop the traditional business of a real estate company. The Investment section deals with advising individuals and companies on the best options to invest in the Barcelona real estate market. The team of professionals at Engel & Völkers carries out personalised assessment based on the demands of the clients so that they can make an informed decision.
Among the best properties to invest in Barcelona with the purpose of obtaining high returns as quickly as possible, it is worth highlighting those that are for sale with tenants in situ. This type of investment ensures regular income right from the start. With a greater capital investment but also with a higher profitability, private car park spaces or garages are highly sought (traffic restrictions encourage their use). In the longer term, regulated land is an option to be taken into account for building a property on or office developments, depending on its location.
As for the best strategies that respond to the powerful tourism sector of the Ciudad Condal, purchasing old buildings for renovation for the purpose of running them as hotels or other commercial spaces is a particularly popular business venture. These are properties with great historical value and located in very busy areas of the city. Finally, it is also worth considering investing in a rural property in the inner areas of the province.
The tertiary sector - and also the secondary sector - require real estate services that adapt to the characteristics and possibilities of each commercial model. The Engel & Völkers Commercial division responds to every specific demand of companies and / or investors.
