Launched in the Spring of 2016, SHARIO.ORG (an acronym for Second Home And Resort Industry Observatory) is an information and networking hub for companies & professionals in the industry in Spain. If you work in the business, then this is for you.
Catering to foreign property-buyers is big business in Spain. They account for some 20% of the housing market, depending on which figures you use. This industry turns over billions of Euros every year, and contributes a significant amount to the Spanish economy.
Bizarrely for such a big business, the sector has no organisation or voice, and nobody researching and publishing business intelligence for the industry. You could argue the sector is flying blind, which makes it a riskier business to be in.
SHARIO has been launched to address this gap. We aim to help organise the industry, give it a voice, provide it with business intelligence, and generally offer information and networking services of value to professionals in the industry. Here are some of the information & networking services we plan to provide:
INDUSTRY NEWS: All the news, all in one place. Know what’s going on in your industry.
