Spanish real estate is experiencing explosive growth at the moment and is a great investment if you have cash parked at the bank.
The easiest way to invest in Spanish real estate, starting from only €50, is to use the Housers platform. It is the largest online real-estate crowdfunding platform in Southern Europe and allows you to invest in property from any part of the world.
When investing with Housers, your investment is backed by a tangible asset (“brick and mortar”), and hence it is considered a much safer investment than, say, cryptocurrencies. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t invest in cryptocurrencies, but real estate investment is definitely a lower risk investment.
When investing at Housers, you will earn monthly rent and also benefit from capital gains. Properties in southern Europe are currently rapidly rising in value.
You can easily diversify your portfolio. Compare investing in tens or hundreds of properties all over Europe to buying one apartment in your home country. You’re spreading your risk much better if you use Housers.
A great advantage is that all this is hassle free. Everything relating to the property is taken care of. You won’t receive any calls from tenants asking to fix their broken pipes or have to fight to collect your rent.
The Spanish and Italian markets are recovering very rapidly and are projected to continue rising in the next few years at least. The rental yields in both markets are among the highest in Europe.
When investing in property, you also need to pay more attention to cities rather than countries as a whole. That’s why Housers focuses on high-growth and successful cities such as Madrid, Barcelona and Milan.
Housers itself as a platform has achieved tremendous success. There are more than 50,000 registered users and more than 24 million euros have flowed into the platform to fund properties. The average annual yield is 4%.
