    The spanish government subsidises the promoters? Was this widely known and how does it work?
    Suddenly the ability of the spanish housing market to avoid a crash makes a whole lot more sense…

    It is correct that there are subventions fior developers but these are in relation to the shortage of rental and low cost housing for young and/or low income residents. The programme is aimed at making such housing affordable to these groups and there are strict rules as to how these subventions can be obtained, sizes of properties, rental prices etc. It could be compared to the British Government’s support for housing associations and such like in the UK.
