In provinces like Alicante they even accounted for half. This is despite the fact that the purchases of the British, the main customers, lost bellows throughout the year by the devaluation of the pound. But the recovery goes through neighborhoods. The provinces with more stock of the time of the bubble and that depend on the national tourism are still behind. In contrast, in others there are already cranes to accommodate more foreigners who want to have their second home in Spain.
According to the Registrar's Association, last year foreigners bought 55,512 homes in Spain. This represents an increase of 18.8% over the previous year and 13.74% of all sales, one of the highest proportions of the historical series.
The British are the first foreign buyers of housing in Spain. Last year they purchased 10,552 homes, 13.74% of purchases from foreign clients, according to the Registrar's Association. That is 6% more than last year, but registrars warn that British purchases take four quarters.
