One sign of the times are in the new TV advertises of Polaris World here in Spain.
Before the crisis the market of Polaris World was luxury homes for europeans. Now the last TV advertise is driven to the Spanish market and we can hear something like this in the spot:
“Housing is a big problem in Spain. But we have achieved to offer you really affordable properties in the best resorts of europe. Just or only 89.000 euros….”
So they before were selling luxury properties to brits but now they are philanthropist people who helps the young spaniards to get their home. Selling their unselled stocks?
