    A recent article in El Pais looked at the municipalities with the highest number of empty homes and produced some info-graphics:

    First, the municipalities (+20k residents) with the smallest and biggest increase in homes over the last decade. Then comes the municipalities with smallest and largest proportion of empty homes. Polaris World hot-spot Torre Pacheco has the biggest problem, surprise, surprise.

    Interesting to see Rivas-Vaciamadrid with the second lowest percentage of empty homes. It is a new town on the outsirts of Madrid that has only really been built in the last 15 years. I know people who happily live there so I’ve watched it grow over the years. Obviously they have done something right there – good infrastructure (metro connections to Madrid), shopping centres, business parks, and housing that has been correctly priced. In fact I was quite surprised to see it on that list because I had assumed some of the urbanisations were still empty, but it seems they have filled up.

    Interesting map altogether. So the areas with a greater percentage of unsold homes tend to be on the coast, and the places with the lowest percentage of unsold homes are in Madrid and the north.
    Never been to Rivas-Vaciamadrid but passed by a few times on the road or by train. Seems a bit far out for the metro line but it seems to work. I see Alcobendas is also on that list (lowest % of unoccupied homes) – that’s got great communications now with the metro extension and rail link. Shows good transport links often make a huge difference.
