Madrid ( mə-DRID, Spanish: [maˈðɾið]) is the capital and most populous city of Spain. The city has almost 3.4 million inhabitants and a metropolitan area population of approximately 6.7 million. It is the second-largest city in the European Union (EU), and its monocentric metropolitan area is the third-largest in the EU. The municipality covers 604.3 km2 (233.3 sq mi) geographical area.
Madrid lies on the River Manzanares in the central part of the Iberian Peninsula. Capital city of both Spain (almost without interruption since 1561) and the surrounding autonomous community of Madrid (since 1983), it is also the political, economic and cultural centre of the country. The city is situated on an elevated plain about 300 km (190 mi) from the closest seaside location. The climate of Madrid features hot summers and cool winters.
The Madrid urban agglomeration has the second-largest GDP in the European Union and its influence in politics, education, entertainment, environment, media, fashion, science, culture, and the arts all contribute to its status as one of the world’s major global cities. Due to its economic output, high standard of living, and market size, Madrid is considered the major financial centre and the leading economic hub of the Iberian Peninsula and of Southern Europe. The metropolitan area hosts major Spanish companies such as Telefónica, Iberia, BBVA and FCC. It concentrates the bulk of banking operations in the country and it is the Spanish-speaking city generating the largest amount of webpages.
Madrid houses the headquarters of the UN’s World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), the Ibero-American General Secretariat (SEGIB), the Organization of Ibero-American States (OEI), and the Public Interest Oversight Board (PIOB). It also hosts major international regulators and promoters of the Spanish language: the Standing Committee of the Association of Spanish Language Academies, headquarters of the Royal Spanish Academy (RAE), the Instituto Cervantes and the Foundation of Emerging Spanish (FundéuRAE). Madrid organises fairs such as FITUR, ARCO, SIMO TCI and the Madrid Fashion Week. Madrid is home to two world-famous football clubs, Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid.
While Madrid possesses modern infrastructure, it has preserved the look and feel of many of its historic neighbourhoods and streets. Its landmarks include the Plaza Mayor, the Royal Palace of Madrid; the Royal Theatre with its restored 1850 Opera House; the Buen Retiro Park, founded in 1631; the 19th-century National Library building (founded in 1712) containing some of Spain’s historical archives; many national museums, and the Golden Triangle of Art, located along the Paseo del Prado and comprising three art museums: Prado Museum, the Reina Sofía Museum, a museum of modern art, and the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, which complements the holdings of the other two museums. Cibeles Palace and Fountain has become one of the monument symbols of the city. The mayor is José Luis Martínez-Almeida from the People’s Party.
The financial stability of Madrid has translated into a real estate market that rewards forward planning and a willingness to look beyond areas of traditional affluence.

The Flipping Strategy in Madrid
Investment property flipping in Madrid is a simple strategy. You find a property that is in need of renovation from our list and purchase it for a low price. These type of Madrid real estate investments are sometimes referred to by professionals as ‘distressed’ Madrid real estate.
What is distressed Madrid property:
- Madrid property in need of renovation
- Madrid real estate with a change of purpose and use
- Oversold Madrid property
- Bank repossessions in Madrid
Put simply, long term investors in Madrid purchase the property, renovate it and make it a lot more attractive to potential buyers.
Calculate profit that you make from Madrid investment property flipping:
Final Selling Price less Cost of Purchase less Costs = Profit
Here is an example:
Madrid property purchase price: $220,000
Renovation costs: $20,000
Other costs: $25,000
Property sale price: $400,000
Experienced property developers in Madrid use a minimum profit value of 22% when looking at potential Madrid projects.
The reason for this is because there are lots that can go wrong in Madrid property flipping and working on a potential margin of 22% should still leave a good margin of error.
