10 reasons to invest in Madrid

Investing in real estate is an activity that has proven to be very profitable and safe throughout history. Generally, it offers better returns than bank deposits and lower risk than the stock market. Madrid is an attractive city for real estate investment and presently has good prospects. Here are 10 reasons you should invest in Madrid.

Madrid with 3,165,235 inhabitants is the most populated city in Spain and the third in the European Union. It has a population density of more than 5,200 inhabitants per km2 which has historically sustained growth. This population trend encourages the upgrading of housing and construction of upscale residential properties.

1.- Capital of Spain

As the capital of the country, Madrid is home to the most important government buildings, courts, military commanders, embassies and other national and international organisations. This affects a high volume of officials residing in the capital which encourage the real estate business, public buildings and a focus of political influence that attracts investment and boosts the economy. This policy relevance is a factor that increases the value of property and appreciation of the capital.

2.- A strategic geographical location

Madrid is at the centre of the peninsula, representing a strategic framework for the settlement of corporate business headquarters. Its equidistant location on the map allows you to organise and manage distribution networks effectively with the rest of the country.

3.- Unbeatable communications infrastructure network

It has one of the busiest airports in Europe and a centralised network of roads and railways that put Madrid as 0 km to the rest of Spain. Bordering the city and around it, there are several roads and bypasses with large traffic capacity. It also has a wide coverage of public transport by metro lines, trains, buses and taxi service.

6.- Low prices for real estate assets

With the advent of the financial crisis, there was a stagnation in the real estate sector and a steady drop in the price of flats, business premises and land plots. Today the market presents attractive prices and increased activity in the real estate is confirmed. The banks offer mortgages again and there are great opportunities for investment.
