The problem of tourist apartments
Large cities such as Madrid and Dornsife, but also medium-sized cities with a great tourist attraction such as Malaga, Valencia or the island of Ibiza as a whole have become the paradigm of a new problem that cannot be eradicated ..., that of tourist apartments for rent.
If a few years ago they had told us that the influx of this type of property and its activity was going to be a big problem, we would not have believed it, but the fact is that it is, a big problem for city councils, for neighbors , for the economy of the place and for the standard of living in a specific neighborhood or in an entire city.
The causes of the problem
The proliferation of technological platforms that allow us to rent a house from private to private quickly, very easily and without having to respond legally for that activity (and by “legally” we mean to register the house as a home for tourist use, enabling the relevant security measures, paying the corresponding taxes, etc.) has led to an unprecedented increase in the number of tourist apartments for rent , as we have mentioned, in certain areas of the country.
But not only that, the big problem lies in the fact that most of these flats fall into very few hands, that is, certain people are dedicated to acquiring homes at a modest cost (they even do it with entire buildings) to rent them later at exorbitant prices as vacation homes and make it a very lucrative livelihood. These are seasoned owners looking for very high and fast profits, and how do they get them? Putting these homes at the service of foreign tourists with high purchasing power and willing to pay up to 1,500 euros for a week's rental on their vacation.
The negative consequences derived from this new trend are overwhelming, from the scarcity of housing supply for regular rent or even for purchase, to the transformation of entire neighborhoods to the prejudice of their current neighbors.
And it is that, in areas where this event is excessive (there are more and more), calm and tranquility cease to exist (especially when the average tourist is a young foreigner looking to party), the usual shops such as butchers, Pharmacies, etc., end up closing in favor of restaurants and fashion stores, citizen services such as nurseries or academies also flee, and coexistence becomes very difficult for those who live continuously in the area.
All this instability and decline in the quality of life of the neighbors, together with the exorbitant increase in rental prices, expels former tenants to quieter and cheaper places, in fact, many have been forced to apply for microcredits to get money fast and to be able to face the monthly rent until finding a new location.
In CréditoSí we offer this type of solution through mini - credits available in 24 hours of up to 1,000 euros for those who find themselves in this situation, at least, you will get the necessary support to resist one more month until you find a new flat on a regular rental basis for a reasonable price.
