It seems that numbers of foreign buyers are definitely rising. However, worth noting that sales overall are still down. It will be interesting to see if the 160k measure (if the govt actually get around to implementing it) makes any difference to the numbers. With the over-suppply of available properties, prices should remain low for a few years yet?
The number of overseas buyers purchasing property in Spain rose 18% in the year to quarter three 2012 – but overall purchases have fallen, new figures show.
