 Affordability in Spain declines due to record high prices in Selling Property

Housing affordability in Spain continued to decline in the second quarter of 2017 this year as prices reached record highs, the latest index shows.

It comes as a time when the Spanish Government has announced it will do more to ease the situation by making more help available to first time buyers and by adding to restriction on overseas buyers.

The second quarter affordability index from the Spanish Housing Industry Association (SHIA) says that buying a home is becoming less affordable in Spain largely due to a rise in the median dwelling price of 7.1% to a record high of $840,600.

It points out that the growth in house prices in the second quarter outstripped the growth in wages resulting in the deterioration in affordability and overall the index is down by 0.3%. (Rafleys.com Property Journal)

Property/Home Owners in Spain Losing out by Not Switching Their Mortgages,

Home and property owners in Spain who don’t remortgage after their fixed term deal can end up paying an average of $500 extra a year, with many not realizing they could save money by switching.

New research from Spanish Citizen Association also reveals that first time buyers, who typically have more time left on their mortgages, can end up paying an extra $1,559 a year after their typical two year deal finishes.

The extra payments comes as the result of mortgagees being automatically put onto their lender’s standard variable interest rate at the end of a fixed term mortgage deal rather than looking around for a better product.

The Spanish Citizen Association finds that people who remain on the standard rate after a two year fixed term mortgage deal face an average loyalty penalty of $539 per year and it calculates that 1.3 million people would be better off if they switched to a new deal.
