Record Spanish Property Sales in 2014 !!

Filed under: Property — Barrington Homes @ 2:01 pm

A study by Real Capital Analytics has revealed that Spanish property sales have increased a remarkable 183% in the first quarter of 2014 compared to the first quarter of 2013. This equates to over 1.4billion Euros of property transactions throughout Spain. These impressive figures prove the return of investor confidence to the Spanish property market.

A number of Private Equity companies are investing heavily in Spanish Real Estate and particularly throughout the Costa del Sol. Private Equity companies have increased their market share in property in Andalucia by a staggering 13.9%. Goldman Sachs are particularly active in the residential property market. This large increase in private investment in the area shows that property prices are potentially at the lowest they will go. Also that supply in property is also reduced due to the purchase of entire developments or blocks of apartments by these leading investment companies.

Spains Development Ministry has also recently announced that the average house price in Spain fell by only 0.5% in the first quarter of 2014 which is the smallest decline in any quarter in the last 4 years which suggests that the bottom of the market is near.

With investor confidence increasing, property supply reducing and the property values more stable it certainly suggests that anyone wishing to own a property in Duquesa or make a sound property investment should certainly act now.

A record 681 beaches in Spain have been awarded the Blue Flag beach status. The internationally recognised accolade for beach cleanliness and safety. This is more Blue Flag beaches than any other country in the world.


Rival countries have a staggering 200 less Blue Flag beaches than Spain. The next challenger being Greece at a mere 407. Andalucia alone has 81 Blue Flag beaches and here in Manilva we are lucky enough to boast over 7km of Blue Flag beaches and the only Municipality in Andalucia that has the Blue Flag trail.

Spanish Property is one of the best priced in Europe !

The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) have assessed the value of housing in 27 member countries based on the ‘average wage against the long term property prices’ and also ‘property prices versus rent’ to assess the properties value as a business investment. Spain scored among the best on both counts and improved its score on 2013 results. Spains property market scored better than rival countries such as USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand which we all over valued according to the report.

In the statement released by the OECD it also commented that “In Europe, strong house price growth is continuing in Germany and Switzerland, and has also resumed in the UK, even though prices there are already above longer-term norms relative to rents and incomes. Markets remain softer in other parts of the euro area, reflecting weak income growth and tighter financing conditions.”

The report is encouraging for anyone who wants to invest in the property market in Spain in 2014 as the prices are the most relative to the low Spanish wages and rental yield is still strong. For more information on bargain buy property in Duquesa take a look at Barrington Homes comprehensive guide.
