El Cañaveral, cheap housing
Written by Contact Us

El Cañaveral, the southeastern reef of Madrid

The Cañaveral has positioned itself as the destination of reference for thousands of young people from Madrid and neighboring municipalities seeking affordable housing. In addition, the 50% of the projected properties will have some type of protection. At present, 1.000 homes have already been delivered, according to data from the Compensation Board.

This area benefits from the exhaustion of supply in Vallecas. There are only 100 free homes in stock, as highlighted Laura Sampedro Serrano, Director of Research and Valuations of Foro Consultores. Faced with this figure, in 2007 in the Ensanche de Vallecas there was a stock of 3.000 homes.

This indicates the existence of demand and the lack of supply. And this is reflected in the sales rhythms at El Cañaveral. Another important fact is the depletion of protected housing in this area. It was the first to be developed and delivered at El Cañaveral. And this is driving the sale of free housing, in the absence of supply in the rest of southeast Madrid. Developments such as Los Berrocales or Valdecarros are still paralyzed. Another relevant fact is the value of the land, much lower than other areas of Madrid.

All the data, the promotions, the number of houses and the market situation in this area you can see them in And Your Housing in collaboration with Foro Consultores.
