Better sell now

For Juan Pedro Caro, CEO de Temple Consulting, the high demand in Madrid means that a house at market price sells for approximately 10 days. When it takes to sell more than a month in the capital, the problem is always the price. Seeing the rising perspective of home value, many homeowners put the most expensive apartments waiting for the moment in which the market value rises.

Caro stresses that this is not always a good idea. At the same time that increases the price will also increase the municipal capital gain or the IBI that we have to pay for housing. And, also, we want to sell to buy another house, it should be noted that the new home will also see its price increasing.

Thus, for the real estate expert, the best time to make the sale is always now. Although it seems that the trend will continue to rise for years to come, we can't know for sure when prices will start to drop.

Even if Madrid It is the city where a home sells the fastest, Ceuta with a term of 3,4 months and Zaragoza, with 4,7 months, follow him closely. Barcelona, who ranked first last year, has come to require a deadline of 4,8 months for the sale of a property. Sevilla, with a term of 5,8 months, and Valencia, of 6,9, still on the list, according to the report of Forget it.

curiously, it is these two cities that also present a higher profitability of the sale to rent later. In Sevilla a 17,7% and in Valencia a 16,7%, very for on top of the 8,2% national average.
