Sun shines on Spain

Leading Spanish home builder, Taylor Wimpey España has released end of year results for 2015 that highlight the significant progress being made in the Spanish property market.

The average selling price of these properties has also seen a rise of 26%, from €250,000 to €315,000. Such positive statistics emphasise the Spanish property market’s success in 2015.

Javier Ballester, Managing Director for Taylor Wimpey España, is confident that the market will continue to thrive this year, commenting:

“The start of the year has been extremely encouraging and with international demand rising again. The growing talk of a potential Brexit is yet to have an impact as British buyers who are responsible for the most sales so far this year, and there is nothing to suggest that this trend will not continue throughout 2016. Our latest figures show Spain is still very much top of the list for many potential buyers and we are very excited to see what the next 12 months hold for the market.”
