What does this mean for Andalusia? Making sense of it all.

December 2017

December 2017 alone saw 20,812 registered property transfers for Andalusia.

This equates to 95 transfers for every 100,000 inhabitants. Third highest in Spain after Valencia and The Balearics.

Of this figure, 6,287 were property conveyances – selling of properties in the open market –

This marks a 10.7% annual increase. Compare this to the Catalan region, down by 5.7% and it is tempting to emphasise how markets need stability. Andalusia with its infrastructure, sunshine and stable political environment is a great place to invest. Make up for dips in your portfolio for Spanish property from 2007 onwards; property purchase always has highs and lows, but now is the time to get those bargains once again.
