      The counselor for climate, land and infrastructure, Isabel Bonig, and the counselor for work, economy, industry and tourism, Maximo Buch, have traveled to Finland in order to expand and consolidate the Valencian region’s house sales to Scandinavians.

      The lengthily named ‘Commission for the reactivation of productive activity and employment through the increase of acquisition, rental and use of housing in the Valencian Community by citizens from the rest of Europe’ is the body that is responsible for this work.

      While in Finland the counselors will hold meetings with the Confederation of Finnish Estate Agencies, the Association of Property Developers and the most important national association of homeowners that has over 23,500 members.

      Scandinavians make up a very important part of the Valencian Community’s housing market, in the past 3 years 6,375 houses have been sold to Scandinavian buyers.

      Although most of the Valencian region’s sales to Scandinavians used to be of properties on the coast demand is now rising for cultural and urban locations with good amenities. For this reason the new AVE link which Alicante has to Madrid should provide a boost to sales.

      Currently the majority of Scandinavian buyers come from Norway (3,261 in the last 3 years) and Sweden (2,572 in the same period). The aim is to now increase the number of buyers from Finland and the Baltic States.

      Urban and cultural locations are growing ever more
      popular with Scandinavian buyers in Spain
