Angel Serrano (pictured), head of the property consultancy Aguirre Newman, says that Spanish rental prices will carry on falling in 2013 and 2014 thanks to the recession. He expects falls of another 10pc in total.
Part of the reason for falling rents is the increase in supply, as owners who can’t sell turn to renting in search of a yield.
José Luis Ruiz Bartolomé, another real estate consultant quoted in an article at the financial daily Expalsión, forecasts that rents will fall 30pc.
Bear in mind they are really talking about rents for primary housing in cities, not holiday-housing on the coast. Holiday lettings are a different market.
