Now is the right time to buy both new housing and the resale. As for new properties, in the near future in Spain the number of offers is expected to drop (in 2020, due to the pandemic, ⅓ less than usual construction licenses was issued). Thus, the price will increase, and the number of residential properties will temporarily decrease. In case you don’t want to overpay, now is the time.

Some people choose renting first, when they arrive in Spain "to explore" the area and settle in a new place.

The answer can be illustrated by the fact that sales of real estate, especially new one, don’t stop in Spain even during the pandemic. In these unstable times people realize the importance of a safe place.

In addition, real estate has always been considered a reliable investment and an asset that will not ever depreciate.
