You have either been badly hurt by Spain in the past or you are after the dream property for a 2000 price.
The reality is, people need homes at affordable prices. Unfortunatly, houses have been turned into investments, causing house price inflation which was fuelled by greedy bankers wanting to have every last one of us in debt up to our eyeballs, of course those greedy investors who thought that house prices only ever go upwards also have their share of the blame.
So, yes, many of us will take homes at 2000 prices, even less.
Perhaps you like the idea of being massively in debt for a gnats knacker of land and few bricks, however its never been my idea of a good time.
