Analysis of the Real Estate Market in the First Quarter of 2024 in Spain

April 2nd 2024

The first quarter of 2024 in Spain has witnessed an interesting evolution in the real estate market, as revealed by the data collected by the Tinsa IMIE Local Markets statistic. In a landscape marked by the quest for stability, residential prices have maintained a trend close to stabilization in most regions of the country. However, this scenario has not been homogeneous, as divergent phenomena have been observed in different areas.

One of the most notable characteristics of this period has been the moderate growth in the average value of housing, both new and used, which has experienced a slight increase of 0.1% compared to the previous quarter. Despite its modesty, this increase raises the year-on-year variation to 3.3%, indicating a trend towards moderation in prices after periods of more pronounced growth in previous quarters.

Nevertheless, in major cities like Madrid and Barcelona, a slight reduction in housing prices has been observed during this quarter, with decreases of 1.1% and 0.7% respectively. This phenomenon can be attributed to various factors, including the contraction of mortgage credit and the loss of purchasing power among households, which is affecting housing accessibility in these urban centers.

On the other hand, some specific areas have shown notable dynamism during this period. Capitals within Madrid's sphere of influence, such as Guadalajara, have experienced significant year-on-year growth, as have coastal cities like Valencia, Almería, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, and Málaga, all of which have registered increases exceeding 8% compared to the previous year. This dynamism in specific areas reflects the diversity of opportunities and the different dynamics that characterize the Spanish real estate market.


EIn conclusion, the Spanish real estate market in the first quarter of 2024 shows signs of stabilization and moderation in prices, although with notable variations in specific areas. Despite persistent challenges regarding housing accessibility in major cities, the dynamism observed in tourist areas and other specific points opens up a range of opportunities for both investors and buyers alike. It is crucial to closely monitor these trends to better understand the market's evolution and make informed decisions in the real estate sector.
