Housing: is it time to invest?

The crisis, especially when prolonged over time, changes the perspective of most investors. And something that was a perfect value, overnight becomes the worst asset to invest.

That is what has happened to the housing market. It was always the favorite asset of many Spaniards, but the crisis has brought us many surprises.Where are we now? And is housing still a safe haven?

We believe so for a number of reasons. On the one hand, the Return on deposits and other assets Of the market is Low minimum (below the 2%), especially after the last drop in the price of money. This indicates that the home is once again in the investors' sights, you just have to see the different operations that are taking place in the market. For some companies, housing is becoming a refuge value, taking Return via rent or waiting for future revaluation.

And on the other hand, Prices are practically low And the different statistics already show decreasing decreases and in some cases, slight rebounds, this indicates that we are touching ground for what the price of housing is concerned. Although for enthusiasts, this does not mean that a price rebound will suddenly occur with large capital gains. Things will go Piano to piano which is the best in this and other markets and, most importantly, now You can get homes at very attractive prices.

Obviously, everything has its pros and cons. On the positive side of the balance it is clear that, although it may lose, it recovers and, moreover, it is a tangible element vis-à-vis other financial assets. This is coupled with low prices. Regarding the drawbacks, at this time there is still funding in the market and the Government has worsened taxation, Something that does not help this sector.
