We analyse the profitability of housing in the Valencian Community, the most profitable community in terms of property sale and rental prices.

The brick is still the most profitable financial product. According to the study ‘The profitability of housing in Spain in 2023’ carried out by Fotocasa, the profitability of housing in Spain at the end of 2023 stood at 6.4%, just one tenth less than a year ago. This slight decrease is due to the increase that has occurred in the purchase price, a more pronounced rise even than that produced in the rental price.

Even so, these investment returns are practically double those offered by other products such as Treasury bills or large bank deposits.

But what returns can we find in the Valencian Community, and how much has the price of housing in this autonomous community risen or fallen?

In this way, the Valencian community is the most profitable community for buying and renting housing.

This is so because during 2023 the rental price in the Valencian community has risen more sharply than the purchase price. According to the data consulted in the Idealista Price Index, from December 2022 to December 2023 the purchase price in the Valencian community has risen by 11.27%, from 1,596 euros per m2 to 1,776 euros per m2, while the rental price has risen by 13.75%, from 8.8 euros per m2 in December 2022 to 10.01 euros per m2 in December 2023.

Despite this, the rental profitability that we can obtain from a property will depend on many factors such as the price at which we have bought it, the need or not of financing, possible reforms or the rotation of tenants (the higher the rotation, the lower the profitability).

Profitability of buying and selling

In addition to the profitability of renting, we can also achieve very interesting returns by considering the purchase of a property for subsequent sale. This type of real estate operation normally involves reforming or refurbishing the property in order to obtain a higher sale price, although this does not always have to be the case. In the case of the Valencian Community, the natural increase in prices during the last 5 years due to the higher demand, has caused the profitability of the properties to grow considerably.

In our article‘Profitability on the Costa Blanca to buy and sell in 2023‘ we analysed the 5-year gross profitability that we found in the different municipalities of the Costa Blanca according to the evolution of the price of housing registered by Idealista during the last five years.

The quality of life, the climate and the local infrastructure are factors that make the Valencian community an attractive destination for property investment.
