Queues Through The Night, To Buy Property In Barcelona..

Recommended Posts

This time, Solvia, the real-estate company associated to Banco Sabadell, launched half of its first ever portfolio of new apartments in Barcelona, with the 31 homes selling out in record time.

Reserves for these properties belonging to Solvia, one of the most active property companies on the market, were made in a matter of hours, after prospective buyers queued up through the night and then banged on the door of their office in the morning before they opened.

Anyone here who lives near Barcelona? Surely, even if the prices were right, you wouldn't get queues for property not yet completed (off-plan)? Or is there a local reason for such demand?

Seems very odd.

I have no idea where this development is. I do know there have been complaints that Barcelona is being overrun by tourists, getting worse with the advent of Airbnb and the like. Maybe this is local people (or foreign investors) wanting to earn money from tourist lets? (despite the local council trying to prevent this)

Got to be flats in a tourist area I would have thought?

Tourism numbers strongly up this year in Spain, with the highest numbers in Catalonia. But will they still be able to come next year if Ebola spreads across Europe?
