Having just completed a 4 week stint of exhibitions I decided to use the exposure to prospective buyers to conduct a survey.
I put a questionaire in front of 300 different visitors to my stand at 3 venues.
It seems that most prospective buyers are not aware of any sort of Spanish property crash.
In answer to question 1 – Do you think the recent negative publicity regarding the spanish property market will a) deter a purchase b) not affect your purchase c) what negative publicity?
67% of the completed forms where answer C).
The remaining 33% were – 56% answer a) and 44% answer b).
The general verbal opinion of people was that the media always blow things out of proportion and did not beleive any or most of what is said.
It seems people will always decide for themselves what is right or wrong.
