If you think that falling property prices are a bad thing, then January was the worst month for resale properties since the crisis began.
Asking prices for resale properties fell 9.4pc in January compared to the same time last year, according to the house price index published by idealista.com, a leading property portal.
On a monthly basis, asking prices of homes in the idealista.com database fell 1.9pc to an average price of 2,045 €/m2.
It represents the biggest fall in asking prices since idealista.com started publishing the index before the crisis began in 2008.
On a monthly basis, prices fell the most in Castilla-La Mancha (-2.3pc), followed by The Balearics, Asturias and Andalucia (-2.1pc). Prices fell the least in Aragon (-0.1pc).
The Basque Country has the most expensive asking prices in Spain (3,312 €/m2), whilst Extremadura has the cheapest (1,305 €/m2), followed by Murcia (1,306 €/m2).
