1. Suburban houses are generally larger than the average property. If one of your main concerns when choosing a home is space, you must know that those located on the outskirts typically enjoy greater number of square metres. This occurs without distinction, regardless of whether you choose a villa or an apartment. And, in any case, the properties are said to be more spacious and cozy. Moreover, most of them have certain luxuries such as, storage room, guest room, garage, office or terrace.

2. The properties on the outskirts of the city are cheaper. The difference in the price between the one hundred square metre houses, for example, that are located in the centre of Barcelona and the ones on the outskirts is huge. In this respect, the money you save can be put towards renovating the property or anything else you need. In addition, if you are going to work in the village, you will have to move and won't suffer from parking problems. 

3. Utter peace and tranquillity. The outskirts of Barcelona the properties are characterised mainly by the utter peace and calmness, exactly the opposite of what happens in the historic centre and the most traditional neighbourhoods, which are full of bars, discos and heavy traffic. Therefore, you can rest peacefully and enjoy a much more relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

4. Easier access. As mentioned before, if you dare to live in the suburbs, parking problems will disappear from your life. The same can be said about access to these areas because, usually, there is never any traffic jams or crowds of vehicles. All this will result in having more time to spend with your family.

5. Lower maintenance costs. As mentioned, the price of housing on the suburbs of Barcelona is significantly lower compared to the ones located in the centre or in the luxury districts. And the same can also be said about living expenses, ie, community building or urbanisation. Similarly the prices of gyms, supermarket foods and even some taxes are significantly lower.
