This prediction was not only met, but completely surpassed, reaching an unbelievable 60%. The average value of a property sold has also increased. In 2012 the average house price was around 85,000 euros, but this has risen by almost 10,000 euros through 2013. This, among other financial improvements, has seen an improvement in the financial stability of the Spanish economy, which through 2013 has increased by 1% and is expected to continue to grow.
Throughout 2012, property sales were most commonly to people from Belgium, France, Norway and Sweden. But as the economy and confidence in the market has improved, people from Britain are now making their mark once again. In 2013, over 60% of sales were down to British buyers.
