Real estate estimated return is back in strong positive territory
According to statistics released by the Central Bank of Spain in December 2016, the return expected on the residential Real Estate market in Spain is of 8,4%.
This performance comes from two sources: gross rent yield estimated at 4,4% and the capital gain estimated at 4%.
First real positive return since the crisis of 2008
As you can see on our chart, the estimated return became slightly positive for the second time since 2008 at the start of 2014. In 2010, the estimated return went slightly positive but it was not enough to compensate the mortgages costs. This time, the performance is much stronger as the estimated profitability of 8.4% nearly covers by more than 3 times the mortgages costs.

Another positive factor: Activity is picking up
You should take into account the increase of activity in the market by both nationals and foreigners as you can notice on this chart:
