Buy or rent a holiday house?
You all know my favorite European country is Spain (of course when I don’t consider my native country Slovakia.) And the region I admire the most is no doubt Catalonia.
Not only Barcelona is my number 1 city in the world, but there’s hundreds of small towns and villages hidden in the mountains or spread along the coast that are worth a visit.
I am speaking about this because today I just found an infographic comparing house prices in 5 different countries: France, US, Italy, Spain and China. It was very surprising to see the houses cost more in France than in the US.
And even though the houses are not the most expensive ones in Catalonia, Spain, the return of investment is the best one out of these 5 countries. It means that if you buy a holiday house and then rent it to tourists and travelers, it will pay off in the long run.
Check out the infographic that follows to find out more about the topic if you are interested. If you are looking for a house, have a look at the best places to find holiday home.
PS: But if you don’t have enough money or it’s not the right time to buy a holiday house, and you are not into all inclusive holidays, you can still rent a perfect house for a few weeks. There’s many websites for that.
Like it! Maybe you should consider to add Genteel Home luxury apartments, they have amazing apartments in Sevilla, Málaga, Granada, Madrid and Barcelona to go on vacation for a reasonable price. So you enjoy the best of each city!
If you’re buying a house in Barcelona then I think I will too.
I didn’t realise just how awesome the city was until our recent visit during TBEX; plus right now if you can afford to buy an two bedroom apartment in the centre and use the other room for airbnb, you’ll make a killing.
