For the last number of years, real estate in Spain was pushing towards double-digit growth before the global economic collapse of 2008 took hold and turned the market upside-down. Recovery has been robust but leisure property sales continue to be stagnant and there is no indication of a sustained upward trend any time soon.
Many Spanish people bought on the basis that future double-digit growth would not only be a matter of magnanimous purchase but also be part of an aomatic luxury fuelled by strong growth in the Mediterranean region of Spain.
The Spanish crisis many years ago was caused by moneyed foreigners, keen to acquire property in the beautiful country, spending their capital on exotic locations far away from their home countries, often with no intention of residing in them.

The historic over-supply of properties in the Mediterranean region of Spain is diminishing day by day however and the situation is set for a long-term policy of further increases. The region is one of the leading foreign exchange markets in the world and a significant foreign capital influx is likely to return to bolster the long-term growth in Spanish property.

The number of visitors to Spain are increasing every year and with more visitors every year the rental demand for real estate is going to increase for many years to come.
