Since the outbreak of the financial crisis that devastated the real estate market in Spain and its entire economy, resale properties have continued enjoying better statistical figures than new-build homes. However, the take-off of residential construction may represent a turning point that will reverse the situation in the coming months. During the third quarter of 2017, the sale of this type of property grew by 18.8% more than during the same period in the previous year.
These figures alone prove that the public is becoming encouraged to buy new-build homes. However, if we take into account that, during that quarter, the resale market only grew by 15%, it is possible to draw an early conclusion that the outlook is starting to change.
