      Worse results for 5 years. Bit different to what I read on here, thought they were selling like hot cakes ๐Ÿ™„

      They could be. I’ve never seen anyone sell hot cakes; have you? ๐Ÿ˜†

      Heh – can’t remember anyone here going on about “selling like hot cakes”. Only the fact that certain foreign buyers have increased, whilst the Spanish numbers have fallen, resulting in an overall fall in the previous years. Good news for those buying away from the touristic spots I would have thought?

      Oh, and before you get out the champagne in glee at what you believe is bad news Katy – in case it slipped your memory, Easter fell early this year Which meant fewer working days in March. Adjusted accordingly, the figures were actually slightly up Year-on-year. ๐Ÿ˜† But never mind, you’ve got the remaining quarters of the year to look for bad news! Good luck!

      Incredible Marcos that you are trying to spin this as positive news.

      I can’t see ‘good news for those buying away from touristic spots’ in Spain, where for example, would this be the middle of nowhere with little to do, I don’t get it ๐Ÿ˜• ๐Ÿ™„

      Quote from article below 29th April :’The chief worry is Spain where a vast glut of unsold property has yet to hit the market; and, ‘prices likely to fall a further 30% in Madrid’ should make you relieved you haven’t bought there yet Marcos ๐Ÿ™„

      Lower house prices are good for first time buyers, and are good for the economy as it will promote movement and buyers from abroad.

      All bubbles burst – have you not heard that trueism? Better to get this over – and there are signs that the first quarter, is the last of the really bad set of figures. For example car sales up, unemployment down in April. The EU is going to do something at last about high levels of youth unemployment, and a new EU-US trade will hopefully be signed soon.

      Obviously it can’t look good for house sellers currently, but if indeed we are at the turning point, then things will improve. Perhaps quicker than many realise

      Don’t be misled by April’s unemployment figures, which fell slightly because restaurants and hotels gear up for the holiday season, and, more importantly, the figures do not include long term unemployed who no longer register as out of work ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

      Even the Government expect their unemployment rate to remain above 24% until 2016 ๐Ÿ™„

      Seasonally adjusted Spain’s unemployment figures were up. However Marcos relies on his mates obscure sites…he is like King Canute with real stats, you wouldn’t want him as an advisor would you ๐Ÿ˜†

      Unemployment figures were down for the month of April, and they will be for the quarters to come.
      Unless you can state otherwise Katy? Care to predict which quarter will be worse than the first quarter?
      If you can’t it seems we’re agreed that the tide has turned! ๐Ÿ˜€
