“Housing Market Has Already Hit the Bottom”. Vía Célere to Create 600 Workplaces

13/03/2014 – Expansion

Chief executive of real estate company Vía Célere, Juan Antonio Gómez-Pintado, describes the year 2013 as “full of changes and promises”. Last year, the firm earned €37.3 million from sales, out of which 94% corresponded to Spanish market, with net gains of €5 million and €210 million in assets. (…).

In total, between 2012 and 2013 Vía Célere sold 754 dwellings.

Apart from Spain, the developer company has got offices in Brazil, Bulgaria and indirectly operates in Romania. “You cannot think that if you know Spanish market, you know all other as well. Thus, you must be flexible and adapt fast.” (…).

Gómez-Pintado shows positive approach to 2014: “We have reached the rock bottom level and the sector will revive this year”. That is why, the businessman bought land in new neighbourhood Valdebebas, being presently under construction in the northeast of the capital. “(…) We are planning to hand over our two biggest housing developments in Spain and two other in Brazil, creating about 600 work places. This year, we will start 540 houses in Madrid only.” (…).
