30 April 2012 @ 23:43
The properties for sale in Spain that end up successfully in a property purchase are falling, but donations and inheritances are at their peak. Opposite the year-to-year fall of 29.1% sales that was registered in the two first months of the year, inheritances and donations of homes have increased by 8.7%.
From January 2012 to February 2012, sales have plummeted to 63,832 units, compared with 89,981 during the same period in 2011.
On the contrary, the 27,362 homes transferred in the form of inheritances and donations in the two first months of 2012 suppose superior growth to the 2,000 units in the last year and they mark a maximum since the start of the series in 2007.
Transfers of Homes represent 21.3%
The total transfers of homes through inheritance and donation has not stopped increasing and they have already entailed 21.3% of the total transfers in the two first months of 2012.
