Costa del Sol new homes glut halved in 2011
Developers in Malaga province (home to the Costa del Sol) sold 10,000 new homes in the course of 2011, almost half the stock of 25,000 new homes on the market at the start of the year, according to the Association of Builders and Developers of Malaga (ACP).
Lower house prices have helped boost sales, and a huge drop in housing starts over the last 3 years, most acute in popular tourist resorts like Marbella, means that the housing glut is shrinking fast.
Given the long lead times in the building industry, there could be an acute shortage of new housing a couple of years from now.
For once I can’t blame those who will find this report hard to believe! Bank deals?
As you say probably offloaded them to “one” entity.
