      Now showing over 400,000 proprerties for sale in Spain.

      1 May — 325,000
      1 June — 336,000
      1 July — 350,000
      1 Sept — 360,000
      1 Oct — 377,000
      1 Nov — 400,000

      Rate of properties coming on to the market is definitely increasing over Sept-Nov.

      I am being very generous in guessing that fotocasa shows 10% of the market…

      Hence I estimate 4 to 5 MILLION properties for sale and increasing!!!!!

      10%? Do you really think it’s that number of the total on fotocasa? What makes you think that? by God there’s a crash an half coming if you’re right!

      Yes, I think 10% is a pretty good estimate.

      Here’s the calculation.

      Approx number of complexes in Almerimar (30 as counted on google maps)
      Average number apartments per complex 350

      Total number of apartments = 10500

      In one complex that I previoulsly owned I counted over 30 “For Sales” boards which is about 10% of the apartments in the complex. So if you use that as a guide and say that 10% of apartments in each complex are on the market then in Almerimar there should be around 1000 apartments “For Sale”

      Fotocasa returns 144 apartments which is around 13% of the market.

      BUT…..

      For a great deal of those 30 complexes there are a significant number where virtually all the properties are for sale as they were completed 2008, 2009, when buyers were thin on the ground. So for Almerimar 10% of properties on Fotocasa is being generous.

      What is definite is that since May the number of properties on fotocasa has increased by 25% so it’s almost certain that the total market has increased by 25% in this time and it continues to grow!

      I was sipping my coffee in a Spanish bar right next door to one of the re-opened premises this afternoon and saw a steady stream of what appeared to be British people going through its doors.

      It may well be then that they were sellers, not buyers.

      well its certainly not a scientific approach youve come up with, but I suspect youre not a million miles away in believing the number is a lot higher than FC shows. I can see something similar in La Linea, FC has around 400 properties, I can say with some comfort that there’s far more than that, perhaps 3 or 4 times. We dont have empty blocks of flats here, its not a holiday town.

      Perhaps your estimate needs to take into account that not all towns have huge empty complexes, certainly inland villages dont.

      I suspect the number is at least 3 times, perhaps 4.

      BTW, its now 402k

      Actually, I love browsing fotocasa, here is one of my old favourites, looks like an ex-brothel

      http://www.fotocasa.es/chalet-torre/rubena/garaje-privado-trastero-piscina-parking-comunitario-n-1-122927602

      pretty cheap, know any … ahem maybe not.

      It is cheap because it’s just for the lease (traspaso).

      This looks like a fun project if the vendor will come down by 30k http://www.fotocasa.es/vivienda/langa-del-castillo/casa-de-pueblo-con-mucho-jardin-123852138

      wonder if its legally habitable.

      Best of all, the condition is described as ‘good’

      Fun project or big headache?
