Madrid real estate pricing

  • 2017 was a good year for Madrid real estate. Prices appreciated, particularly in the Center, elegant Salamanca and residential Chamberí. In fact, this traditional, family friendly neighborhood now has prices rivaling those in Salamanca. The Center (which includes the tourist areas of Sol, Las Letras, Malasaña and La Latina) also saw price appreciation, but on average prices remain lower than those in Salamanca and Chamberí.

  • Although prices have increased, they still, on average, have a long way to go before attaining pre-crisis levels. Moreover, due to structural reforms, the strength of the Spanish economy and external factors like the Catalonian independence movement, we predict that prices will surpass 2008 levels.
  • Rental prices have increased more rapidly than property prices in key investment areas. Rental prices in the Center are the highest in Madrid. This, combined with its relative cheapness compared to Salamanca and Chamberí, means it has the highest rental yields of all Madrid real estate.

Key Madrid real estate investment takeaways

  • The relatively low real estate prices in Madrid’s center, combined with its high rental yields, make it the ideal place for investment properties.
  • Madrid’s lack of high-end hotel stock, combined with its increasing numbers of tourists, makes it the perfect place to invest in a property to list on Airbnb.
  • Although there is still plenty of room for Madrid real estate price appreciation, the market is moving. If you want to make money on your property’s price appreciation, in addition to rental income, we recommend purchasing sooner rather than later.

Madrid is an excellent city for real estate investment because its rental yields are so high- they equal those of New York City. The Center of Madrid has the highest yields in the city.
