IREA provider of financial advisory services and strategic specialized in real estate and hotel has recently published the Report on the Real Estate Sector in Spain in 2015, from which we quote the following paragraphs.

The growth experienced by the economy in 2015, together with the recovery of confidence by consumers, have been key factors behind the large volume of foreign capital invested in the Spanish market and the high number of registered operations.

Financial entities, after years leading the divestment of assets, spend this year in a second place with 5% of the total divestiture, another sign of the normalization in which has entered the sector.


From the point of view of funding is expected that domestic financial institutions continue to increase the volumes of capital for the real estate sector and improving the conditions for granting financing to investors and developers consolidating a trend started in 2015.


Logistics, hotels and residential development will be the most attractive markets for investors in 2016. The logistics sector needs development and adaptation to the new business models and will be driven by the growth of e-commerce, which in Spain has a growing weight in domestic consume.


 Regarding the residential market, greater access to mortgage funding and the interest of developers and funds to invest in this market will strengthen further such activity.
