Property investment visa will give Spain a boost

Saturday, August 24th, 2013

Property investment visa will give Spain a boost

The introduction of new residency visas for foreign investors in Spanish property is expected to give the country’s ailing housing market a boost.

A new law, expected to be passed in July this year will give automatic residency to non-European Union citizens if they invest more than €500,000 in Spanish property.

It is expected that the move will create an increase in investment interest from Asia, with Chinese buyers predicted to pour €100 million into property investment in Spain.

Estate agent Lucas Fox told Property Wire that 80 per cent of the properties on their books in 2012 were sold to non-Spanish clients, with Asian investors looking at Barcelona and Ibiza in particular.

"Most Chinese investors want to buy a property in Barcelona because, not only are they getting a good investment, but there is now the opportunity to acquire Spanish residency at the same time. What’s more, the market is particularly attractive given the historic low price," said SQFT director Han Bin, which is working in collaboration with Lucas Fox.

Although Chinese investors are on the radar, it is expected that the new visa laws will create a boost in funds from many global investors seeking residency in Europe.

Jason Ham, Lucas Fox’s business development manager, told Property Wire: "We have seen Chinese investment in many corners of the world but this is the first time that we have seen interest in Ibiza. Thanks to the proposed changes in residency laws for property investors outside of the European Union, we expect to see increasingly more interest from the Asia-Pacific region as well as Russia and the United States."

The details of the visa have not yet been confirmed however it is expected that they will extend to spouses and children but will not be retroactive.

As well as the introduction of the residency visa, the current low property prices are thought to be tempting for investors as values are around 40 per cent below peak levels.

Barcelona and Ibiza popular among Chinese buyers

Barcelona and Ibiza popular among Chinese buyers

Chinese buyers are increasingly setting their sights on Spanish properties in Barcelona and Ibiza, according to one estate agent. Lucas Fox explained to Property Wire that in 2012, 80 per cent of all real estate on their books was sold to non-Spanish clients and Asian investors were particularly looking to the capital of Catalonia and the popular party island. 

"Most Chinese investors want to buy a property in Barcelona because, not only are they getting a good investment, but there is now the opportunity to acquire Spanish residency at the same time. What’s more, the market is particularly attractive given the historic low price," said SQFT director Han Bin, which is working in collaboration with Lucas Fox. 

The residency scheme, which is expected to become law in July, is designed to attract more non-European investors to the country. It gives automatic residency to buyers investing more than €500,000 (£423, 059) in property. For Chinese buyers looking for a foothold in Europe, this is expected to be seen as an attractive deal. In fact, a group of investors from China is due to arrive in Barcelona at the end of May to see a showcase of properties from Lucas Fox.

Jason Ham, Lucas Fox’s business development manager, told Property Wire: "We have seen Chinese investment in many corners of the world but this is the first time that we have seen interest in Ibiza. Thanks to the proposed changes in residency laws for property investors outside of the European Union, we expect to see increasingly more interest from the Asia-Pacific region as well as Russia and the United States."

American interest in Spain is certainly increasing and figures from tourism research agency Frontur showed arrivals from the US increased by 35.7 per cent to almost 100,000 in March 2013 compared to 2012. While Americans have being choosing Spain as their destination of choice for decades, in March they had the highest growth rate of any region.

Private equity buyers eyeing Sareb assets

Private equity buyers eyeing Sareb assets

Sareb’s distressed property assets could be on the verge of a change in fortune. According to reports, international private equity buyers are starting to eye Spanish real estate and a planned sale of a portfolio of distressed homes from the bad bank is raising hopes, the Financial Times reported. The properties are located primarily in the regions of Andalucia and Valencia, and have been understood to be the subject of interest from buyers including Apollo, Lone Star and Blackstone.

With sales from Sareb currently disappointing, a lot is riding on this deal. A person close  to one of the buyers told the Financial times: "It seems like the moment when it starts to happen. The flow of deals has been zero so far, but this should be the opening of the doors for a lot of transactions." If it goes ahead, the sale of the portfolio will raise at least €200 million (£170.7 million approximately). This will start the ball rolling and help Sareb meet its strategic aim of selling assets as soon as possible to provide a pricing floor for other investors.

This will be important as more and more potential buyers target Spanish property. Already a change is noticeable in the market and, for the first three months of the year, sales numbers increased. Figures from the country’s Land Registry revealed that house sales in Q1 were up by 28.73 per cent on Q4 2012. This equates to a total of 100,768 transactions between January and March – the highest number for the last eight quarters.

While these positive figures have been partly attributed to the rise in VAT on new builds from four per cent to ten per cent and the end of various tax breaks. However, with property prices still falling, Spain is becoming more and more attractive to foreign buyers. Chris Mercer, director of estate agents Mercers, said: "Spain’s economy is still struggling in contrast with other countries, giving foreign home buyers a competitive edge. Other nationalities are comparatively affluent and are finding it hard to resist bargain Spanish property."
