Living on the outskirts of Barcelona; an interesting option

More and more people are choosing to live in places close to the big urban capitals, but far from the bustle of the centre. There are many reasons why more and more residents are making that decision, among which we have the price of the apartments, the improvement of the quality of life, or the easy access of these peripheral towns. In the case of Barcelona, ​​we can list several reasons why it might be time to move to the outskirts.

Firstly, we have to say that prices, the further from the capital, the cheaper. In most cases, towns outside of Barcelona offer an average price well below from the one demanded in the capital, and the same happens with taxes. Generally, electricity, water and gas rates are lower outside the Catalan capital, as well as the prices of citizen’s services or sports centres, for example. On the other hand, the surrounding areas tend to offer a larger surface area in their properties. The reason is clear; As they are less populated areas, their inhabitants can afford wider properties, with larger lands, courtyards, swimming pools, etc.

Another benefit offered by towns outside the centre of Barcelona is calm, and, in general, a better livelihood. Living outside the core implies peace and privacy. Communities are often smaller than the ones we have in metropolis, with fewer neighbours, more space, less noise pollution, and experiences that become more unique and special. Surroundings offer a much less stressful and more personal relationship with the community.

In addition, most of these cities offer very comfortable accesses, both from the centre and from even more distant towns. Coastal or mountain, these towns usually have public transport stations nearby and very good connections with local highways. It is much easier to approach any place of interest, a natural park, the countryside, or the beach, and that is something that is not possible in big capital cities.
