Second home in Gran Canaria, a great investment

When buying a second home, we must not only look at the appearance of it, we must also take into account other factors such as: the location, the size, what we are going to do with it…

Gran Canaria is an island that enjoys many qualities, temperature, tranquillity, good atmosphere, beach and much more, so buying a second home there is a great investment.

Taking into account these references, from Gilmar Off Plan we want to show you the advantages of having a second home in Gran Canaria and the great investment you can make with it.

Why buying a second home in Gran Canaria can be so profitable?

The Canary Islands stand out for their spectacular climate, their vitality, their peace and calm, without forgetting the warmth and hospitality of their people.

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is one of the 10 most populated cities in Spain, with a population of around 380,000 inhabitants, all the services of a capital city and a wide range of leisure activities.

It is a tourist enclave of reference in all parts of the world, visited by an average of 15 million people every year, attracted by the charm of an island that never goes out of fashion. This is an indicator of profitability, because if you have a second home in Gran Canaria you can rent it for a short period of time to visitors.

Tourism is the island’s main source of income, with many people coming to the island from mainland Spain to work in this sector for long periods of time.

If you want to earn a smaller extra monthly income, but with less headaches, renting out your second home to professionals in the tourism sector or other sectors is also very profitable.

After the pandemic, remote working became fashionable, and it seems to be here to stay. Digital nomads have the possibility to work from anywhere in the world, and Gran Canaria is one of the most demanded for all its advantages.

Obviously the comfort of working from home is not comparable to that of a hotel, but if you want to rent your second home in Gran Canaria on a quarterly or biannual basis, this is another good option.

Cleanest air in Spain

Gran Canaria is the city with the cleanest air in Spain, but why? Well, that is thanks to the winds that blow between the tropics of the island, causing the air in the city to be continuously renewed. So much so that there are OMS studies that validate this.

Leisure activities

In Las Islas de Gran Canaria you will be able to enjoy different activities, have fun in its nightlife, go hiking in its wide green areas, discover the seabed, taste a varied and quality gastronomy, plans that are suitable for families with children as well as for adults.
