Spanish House Price Index was up 4.5% in 2016

Strong trend lead by the two biggest markets: Madrid and Barcelona

With the data just released by the INE, we can say that the Spanish housing market is more than stabilising. The trend is led by the two biggest regions in Spain: the community of Madrid and the Catalonia region. That is a very good sign for the Spanish market in general!

Barcelona & Madrid: increases bigger than 7%

Prices increases for Madrid was 9% and was 7.8% for Barcelona on a year on year basis. The “Indice de Precios de Vivienda (IPV)” was up 4.5% for the country.

The two other regions benefiting from higher growth rate than the country are the Balearic Islands and Ceuta.

The regions growing at a rate under 1% are La Rioja, Murcia, Castilla y Leon and Extremadura.
