During the last few months and even years, we have seen how the short-term rental market has grown exponentially. To a large extent, this has been due to the fact that many foreign tourists have chosen our country as their holiday destination or to reside in during the holiday season. Those who wish to spend more than a month in a city like Barcelona, a short-term rental will definitely be their best option. On behalf of Engel & Völkers, we want to explain the advantages of temporary rentals.
Main Advantages of Temporary Rental
The first great advantage of temporary rental is the possibility of enjoying a property that is in excellent condition without having to spend money on it. In fact, despite paying a little more for rent rather than a mortgage every month, it is possible to avoid such expenses like the communal fees and Real Estate Tax, for example.
To this we must add that it is not necessary to spend a good part of your life savings on a property. At the same time, the property must be in a good condition and, in case it has been damaged by the previous tenant, the owner will have to take on the repair costs.
Finally, a temporary rental is subject to increases as well as decreases in the price. This is because it is subject to supply and demand. The price can be reviewed as many times as desired once the tenancy contract expires.
All these are highly appealing factors for foreign clients who, even if they want to reside for a long time in Barcelona, do not want to tie themselves down to a property.
