Real Estate Purchase
With a minimum real estate purchase of €500,000, investors and their families can apply for the Spain Residency by Investment Program. This investment can be for one property or multiple properties, as the law does not declare that the entire sum of the investment must be used for one real estate transaction.
If real estate is the preferred investment route, investors can expect to pay taxes of 6% to 12% for residential real estate purchases and up to 25% for commercial purchases. There is also a notary fee and a registration fee that can be up to €1,000 and €650, respectively.
Real estate investments can be rented out or sold after applicants obtain permanent residency in Spain (5 years), offering a route to profit off of the investment in the future.
