Hogaria.net notes that with prices rising in April it seems that the real estate sector continues to show signs of strength in the face of the health crisis that has affected other manufacturing sectors.
It also expects this trend to continue in the coming months, helped by the end of the restrictions caused by the pandemic, the recovery of domestic tourism and that of the international market in the summer with the arrival of foreign tourists on the coasts.
In terms of the ranking of autonomous communities with the most expensive resale property prices in Spain, Madrid and the Basque Country are the most expensive with prices of 3,103 euros per sq. m. and 2,863 euros per sq. m., respectively. They are followed by the Balearic Islands (2,856 euros per sq. m.), Catalonia (2,528 euros per sq. m.), the Canary Islands (1,771 euros per sq. m.), Cantabria (1,725 euros per sq. m.) and Navarre (1,675 euros per sq. m.).
