Description:Cadiz is located on the south-western tip of mainland Spain. It has a large port and is more of a cosmopolitan rather than a typically Andalusian city. It has a low cost of living and demand for long term lets is high.  This area is not a resort but considered more like a city close to the coast.  This area should strongly appeal to the worker type investor.

The main beach is Playa de la Caleta, but Playa de la Victoria is cleaner and has more sports facilities. Cadiz is popular with foreign buyers and residents. The old part of the city is surrounded by 18thcentury walls and has narrow streets full of tall 18th century houses and squares. Monuments include Cadiz Gothic cathedral and Torre Tavira baroque-style tower.

Yields are healthy and are expected to be in the future.  Don’t expect any significant capital growth as there is no news of any major inward investment – but don’t let this put you off.  A nice income stream can be had from a long term let.  If you plough all the profits back in to repaying the mortgage then the property could be yours within 7 years.  After that the rent is all profit!
