The Spanish property market is bouncing back after a few tough years, offering better value than its euro counterparts
Observing the Spanish property market is like looking at that famous optical illusion of a face. Do you see the beautiful young lady or the warty old woman?
The picture varies dramatically from one region to another, between the sunshine coasts and hilly inland villages, and from whitewashed town to whitewashed town. It also varies wildly between economic indices, as Spain’s official sources are notoriously open to interpretation.
But here’s what we do know. Possibly. Tourism in Spain is booming. Last year saw record visitor numbers — 64m — and where there are tourists, there is demand for holiday homes and villa rentals, tapas bars, furniture shops and all the rest. Everyone wins.
