      I am thinking of buying my first apartment in Barcelona to rent out.

      However, I keep running numbers and I am unable to find many properties that can even be considered a good investment.

      The rents are very low, the closing costs 12-15%, and no short term rental licenses – really makes it difficult to buy.

      Is anyone else having the same issue or am I calculating it incorrectly?

      You should be happy with a net return of 4-5% on your investment plus the (unavoidable) 3% increase on the property resale value. Anything less than those two figures welcome to Costa del Sol.

      We’ve got sunshine…
