Apart from a slight fall in sales in August and September last year, the Spanish property market has now been improving in a positive and steady rate, month by month, since 2016. The good outlook continues as industry forecasts are also looking bright and sunny for the real estate market in Spain for 2020.

Several significant factors are indicating that the sector will not only continue growing in a buoyant manner but that buyers can feel confident that the year ahead will provide yet another great opportunity to buy property in Spain.

For British investors, the recent Conservative landslide in the December general election has at last provided an end to all the uncertainty created by Brexit. Boris Johnson’s administration has ensured the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland will definitely proceed with leaving the European Union; no matter what views individuals feel about the issue, there were undeniable positives delivered by the result. A relief that the matter is settled at last and the delivery of a strong sterling currency being two major factors. The end of the stalemate has ensured that at the very least UK ex-pats and investors will now be encouraged to once again consider the Spanish property market.

The Brits remain a major player in the list of nationalities purchasing a property in Spain each year, but there are many other international communities that choose to settle here, or other foreign investors looking for a good return on their money.

Anyone interested in purchasing a Spanish home in 2020 can look at several positive financial indicators to help them feel confident about making this exciting step. Spanish mortgage rates are currently around an all-time record low, providing house buyers with favourable loan options offered by money lenders.

Options for purchasing new build properties are expanding once more as the Spanish construction sector continues to recover, and most importantly building licenses are finally being approved by local councils.

Data published by the Bank of Spain in 2019 included predictions of a 9% return from an investment in real estate in Spain. Homeowners looking to earn additional income by renting their property for holiday rentals or on a long term private lease will find a flourishing market that exists in this part of southern Europe, particularly within Spain’s popular coastal resorts.

The International credit ratings agency Standard & Poor’s has raised Spain’s credit rating in its latest Global Ratings to A-, the highest level the country has experienced for six years…

This improvement is based on the notion that Spain’s economic growth is expected to outpace that of the eurozone area in 2018, while the government’s budget deficit is poised to shrink significantly this year.
In a statement issued by S&P last week, Spain’s rating was raised “in view of the country’s continuously strong economic performance, accompanied by a solid current account surplus”.

This is all very welcome news for people who are in the process of making a decision about buying property in Spain.
While an A- ranking means that Spain still has six positions to rise before its economy can be said to be truly purring, it represents a marked improvement on 2012 when the nation’s property crash sent the country’s banking sector into a tailspin that was only stopped by an EU-backed bailout.

Since then, however, Spain’s economy has enjoyed 18 consecutive quarters of growth, with the Bank of Spain now equally as bullish as S&P in forecasting uninterrupted growth through to until at least 2022.
Before the increase, S&P rated Spain’s economy BBB+, which sounds OK but actually comes with much baggage that can make it difficult for the government to borrow money.

S&P is confident that Spain can further improve its score over the next couple of years.

Earlier this year, another global ratings agency Fitch, already increased Spain’s rating to A-, while Moody’s – the third of the big three agencies – is expected to follow soon.
