Madrid and Catalonia at the top.

All the communities recorded increases in prices, except Castilla La Mancha where prices remained stable. The largest increases occurred in the communities where Housers selected almost all the opportunities: Madrid (9%), Catalonia (7.4%) and the Balearic Islands (5.7%). Meanwhile, the lowest advances were La Rioja (0.3%), Murcia (0.7%) and Castilla y León (0.8%).

The data comes from the National Institute of Statistics (INE), through the information provided by the General Council of Notaries on the basis of the registered properties from which the property transaction prices are obtained, as well as the weights assigned to each set of properties with common characteristics.

This index of property prices (IPV) aims to measure the evolution of the purchase prices of free-priced housing, both new build and used.

Prices continue to rise in 2017.

Following this trend, so far this year, the price of property has rose by 2.2% according to the index of Tinsa (mayor Spanish valuation company).

The valuation company explains that this growth is due to the push experienced by the demand in the Canary Islands and the Balearics, in which the price has risen by 4.4%, and in the large capitals (especially Madrid and Barcelona), with a price increase of 3,5%, motivated largely by the scarcity of new build properties.
