Last July, the inflation rate reached 10.8%, the highest figure since 1984.

As a result of the notorious rise in prices and the consequent loss of the value of money, it is normal that the question arises as to whether this is a good time to consider housing as a safe haven against this inflation.

Are you one of those who are considering buying a home as an investment? We detail everything you need to know, below.

Benefits of acquiring a home as a safe haven

Betting on an investment in a property can become the perfect tool in the face of inflation. That money that remains immobile in the bank account is losing value, on the contrary, that which is invested in a house is revalued as the real estate does.

Therefore, we could consider the current moment as an opportunity to invest in a house as a safe haven.

The main benefits linked to this investment are profitability, security and obtaining a higher return on savings with low risk.

What are the benefits of this type of investment? Take note!

Capacity for revaluation Since housing is considered a basic and elastic good, its demand is very sensitive to price and is maintained as prices increase.

If you become the owner of a property, but you are considering the possibility of selling it in the future, you should know that its price may increase.

In this case, we recommend that you make sure that the property meets all those conditions that the current buyer is looking for to get the highest possible profitability.

What features have become the most requested?

  • Quality and energy efficiency.
  • Good lighting.
  • Situation and location.
  • Distribution.
  • Domotics.
  • Refurbished housing.

Obtaining extra income: Another option linked to the investment of a home as a refuge value is to obtain thanks to it some extra income by renting it.

It is estimated that, by the end of 2022, as a result of the increase in mortgages and the effect of inflation, families will mostly opt for rental options when investing.

So, at present, we could draw the following conclusions:

● Renting is the preferred choice at this time in our society.
● In general terms, it is considered that it takes less time to rent a property than to sell it.
● A rented property generates money on a regular basis and allows the owner to continue to preserve his or her assets.
