Is it worth investing in high end neighbourhoods or would it be better to go for a budget one?

It really depends on how much you have to spend. If your budget is less than 4000 euros per square meter, look at cheaper neighbourhoods. Otherwise, look at premium neighbourhoods where a higher return can be yielded.

Normally, high value neighbourhoods are safe investments. However, if you are looking for a neighbourhood that remains fairly consistent in yield, Salamanca is a good choice. Properties around here are also easy to sell.
