Half a million properties to have been sold in Spain by the end of 2018
Could 2018 be the busiest year in terms of property sales since 2008?
Official data says Yes!
Following on from recent Notary data, the Spanish National Institute of Statistics has published its own findings with regards to the number of real estate operations and property registrations in September compared to the same month in 2017
Across Spain, the former was up 7.7% interannually in September to 14,377 registered operations.
Of this total, 25,957 operations took place in the region of Andalucía – the home of the Costa del Sol – of which 8,519 were property transactions. According to the National Institute of Statistics (INE), this is 15% better than the ninth month last year for the region.
Continuing the trend, 19.9% of the 42,766 total home transactions in Spain in September were carried out across Andalucía’s eight provinces.
Again, following on from INE’s latest reports, the southernmost region enjoyed by far and away the highest number of total monthly sales; the second most numerous being recorded in the Community of Madrid (6,754 sales).
Besides this year-on-year transaction volume data, an interesting statistic highlighted as part of the report is that of year-to-date property sales. The first three quarters of 2018 saw more than 395,000 Spanish residences change hands, with the final trimester expected to carry on in much the same vein.
Indeed, all indications lead to the 12-month figure reaching – and even surpassing – the 500,000 mark, which would represent the largest volume of sales since the height of the property boom 10 years ago.
So, if you are thinking of finally getting that holiday home on the Costa del Sol you have been thinking about for so long, now could be a really good time to do it. Prices are still low compared to before the financial crises, and rising fast, so not only are you getting the place in the sun you always wanted, you are also making a sound investment.
