Re: Re: Prediction of house sales in coming years


Barcelona is well on its way to becoming a cosmopolitan international city like London; its location close to the French border and the Med also help enormously. Of course there are disadvantages as well as plus points – for example first time buyers will be excluded from the housing market. But various startup conferences, Mobile World Congresses and the like are now held in Barcelona.
In fact my opinion is that anyone wanting to buy a house in Spain yet intending to work, should stick to larger towns, where there is chance of work. I know more and more people work via the web, but as mentioned previously the better web connections are to be found in the cities and large towns. It’s also beneficial if you are a freelance worker, to base yourself in a city as you can network with others in the same sector. There are guiri-business groups that meet in both Barcelona and Madrid.
