Typology of buyers of luxury apartments in Barcelona

To date, the profile of buyers of  luxury apartments in Barcelona has been externalized. That is to say, more and more people from the different countries of the European Union opt for the purchase of luxury properties to spend long periods or only a vacation in the city.

For many of these buyers, when they think about buying a luxury apartment, it is not just about buying a home, but about buying quality of life near the Mediterranean Sea.

Thus, the head of these investors are those of British origin and long after those of French, German and Swedish origin. The main reason why buying luxury apartments in Barcelona by British buyers has been so simple: the Brexit.

As a result of this event and with the uncertain future of the United Kingdom with the European Union, British buyers have rushed to the purchase of real estate and with the future change the relations of purchase and sale will be significantly hampered.
