OK, back on topic.
As for the CB, I know that some are selling at the moment, as a house I was trying to get a mortgage on is now sold. And I am aware of another sale recently in my area. It seems that the agents in my area are busier now, but I still feel sales are slow, and there is certainly nothing like a healthy upturn in the market.
I feel really torn about the future if the market in this area. The Spanish I know are very pessimistic about housing (and the economy in general), so it seems that things will be slow for a good while yet. However, the other side of this argument is that mortgages are available at good terms, and the market seems to be getting more affordable across the board.
