10 recommendations to invest in the real estate market

The Spanish real estate market is now in a phase of expansion, which has been consolidating with increasing intensity since 2014. In this situation, more and more private investors are beginning to become interested in a sector with a very outstanding growth potential. If you have considered entering the real estate market, read the following suggestions that are given by professionals.

1. Look at the location. A very important part of the price of a property is determined by its location. Not all areas of a city are seeing house price increases at the same rate.

2. Consider (and study) the option of renting out the property.
Buy to let has become a very popular way of getting a steady income and increasing profit. As a long-term investment, it is fully justified.

3. Invest, preferably, in areas that you already know.
No one knows a neighbourhood better than those who already live in it. Give priority to local markets that you can monitor more directly and accurately.

4. Residential investment time.
Residential investment gains prominence in the great Spanish cities and the most tourist areas. The Spanish lifestyle is very attractive to foreigners and is behind millionaire purchasers.

5. Pay attention to additional services. Does the building have a lift? And garage? Pools and gardens also help enhance the value of a home.

6. Beware of extra expenses. Linking with the above, an idyllic community but forcing residents to pay a large monthly bill may detract from the property's appeal.

7. Student rentals.This is a very specific investment but offers high returns. The neighbourhoods and districts near the large university complexes (Complutense University of Madrid, University of Barcelona, ​​Polytechnic University of Valencia ...) always enjoy a high demand for flats to rent.

8. Renovate. If a property is old and needs to be renovated, the purchase price must be negotiated sensibly. These jobs are difficult to know before you inspect the property and may dig into your budget. You must take this factor into account.

9. Take advantage of the good credit situation.

After the economic crisis years, as it is said colloquially, the tap has been turned off and the financial companies have intensified their campaigns of mortgage credits. In a macroeconomic environment marked by low interest rates, you can obtain loans or mortgages under almost unprecedented conditions.

10. When in doubt, ask.

Private investors should not fear asking for professional advice if they have any doubts about where or how to invest.
