During the period 2000-2006, Spain saw the creation of a real estate bubble which led to the average house price equating to 13 times an average year's salary after tax. In 2007, the financial crisis put the whole financial system under huge pressure, especially the Spanish sector. All of a sudden, houses were not selling any more and real estate prices started to fall.
With the help of a financial expert, find out what is going on in the Spanish real estate sector, how house prices have so far fallen over 30% since the price peak in mid-2006, rental prices have dropped over 35% and why these prices will keep on falling over the years to come.
