Basque Country is becoming increasingly popular

The Basque Country is very conducive to expatriation. It feels more "European" than other parts of Spain and the region is known for the highest per-capita income in Spain. Many foreign companies have recognized the opportunities that the region is offering. In fact, in the Basque Country there are currently over 1,000 foreign capital companies and thousands of highly skilled foreign workers are living and working in Bilbao, Vitoria, and San Sebastian.

Research has shown that most expats struggled to find an apartment to rent. Globexs has arrived to solve this problem, and to build bridges between apartment owners and expat tenants.

The market for mid-term rentals in Basque country is growing

In Basque Country, like in the rest of Spain, there are 3 types of rentals:

  • Traditional long term unfurnished rentals,
  • mid-term (3-11 months) furnished rentals
  • and short term holiday rentals.

Holiday rentals (Airbnb) are widely present, but there is currently no real platform that helps Basque apartment owners rent their apartment to the most interesting public of all: Expats with a high budget who stay for 3-11 months. Well, Globexs has finally arrived to solve this problem!

The growing trend of global mobility is increasing the demand for flexible housing, also in Basque Country. More and more people work online and location independently, and live accordingly: The move around and live in a different city every few months. This growing group of digital nomads is specifically looking for mid-term expat rentals. Indeed, a lot happened since 1980 when Dolly Parton released the song 9 to 5, and more and more people are trying to avoid the standard 9-5 model of work. In fact, by 2035 there will be an estimated 1 billion of digital nomads roaming the planet. The housing market is responding.
