Why buy a finca in Spain?

The Spanish real estate market is one of the most dynamic and heterogeneous in Europe and is highly valued by foreign investors, especially among non-EU investors. However, domestic buyers are beginning to gain strength after years of economic hardship and are now looking for opportunities that combine security and profitability. Farms and rustic or rural properties are a very interesting option for both professional investors and those looking for a second home or a space for recreation.

When we speak of farms or fincas, it is normal to think of an extension of land totally uninhabited and of no use other than agricultural exploitation. This view is rather superficial, since the rustic properties offer a wide range of possibilities. Firstly, the agricultural activity itself is one of the most obvious commercial orientations, especially in those cases where the farms have already been used for this purpose. This way, we will benefit from an infrastructure already created for this purpose.

The next phase in order of importance would be tourism. It is a category that is divided into multiple subgroups, given the growing diversification of the sector. On the one hand, estates with heritage properties such as stately homes, mansions or old monasteries or convents are ideal as charming hotels or cottages. Inland tourism seems to go into its particular golden age and taking its positions right now with a bright future.

Linked to the above, the farms can also be profitable as centres of dissemination of activities such as viticulture, horse riding or livestock in general. Travel tours would be the main target but not the only one, emphasising the interactive component of the different options. This leisure offer connects visitors with the rural environment and allows them to spend a day in the countryside. Not surprisingly, some owners opt to end deals with hotel establishments and other businesses to offer a much wider and more attractive alternative.

Finally, the potential of a farm as a residence is also something to consider. We speak of a real estate property that brings tranquility and, as a general rule, a direct contact with nature and the rural environment. Not only is it completely disconnected from the hectic pace of urban life, but it opens the door to numerous experiences of ecological background, such as trekking. In the Engel & Voelkers catalogue, you will find a varied selection of farms that are very close to Madrid. They also guarantee quick access to the capital. This situation is very useful to alternate work in the big city with a much calmer life in the countryside.
