The areas in which this change had more impact are Madrid with a 14.6% price raise, Barcelona with 19.9%, Iles Balears with 26.7% and Malaga with 12.3%.

Property buyers are adviced to reserve the property that meets all their requirements as soon as possible, as properties are being sold very quickly. According to Fernando Encinar the manager of statistics in Idealista, “All data confirm the good situation of the Spanish real estate market: increase in sales, mortgage givens, and the sustained increase of prices.”
