Property prices rising in high-demand Gran Canaria areas

Property prices in the Canary Islands rose by 0.2% in the last three months of 2015, according to Spanish property valuation company Tinsa. 

Prices in the Las Palmas province, which includes Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura and Lanzarote, rose by 0.4%.

Overall, prices rose by 2% across Spain, although they are still falling in many areas of the country. Madrid (3.3%) and Catalunya (5.3%) saw the largest price rises while the Balearic islands also saw above average rises (2.7%). In contrast, prices in Navarra fell by 8.5% and prices in Murcia fell by 4.3%.

The variation across Spain reflects what is happening in Gran Canaria. Prices in high demand areas, such as popular tourist hotspots in south Gran Canaria and the beachfront zones of Las Palmas, are stable or rising slowly. Property prices in residential areas away from the coast, and areas that still have lots of empty new-build property, remain stable or continue to fall.

In another positive signs for the Spanish property market, the average time needed to sell a property in Spain has, according to Tinsa, dropped from 10.6 to 10.2 months

Tinsa predicts that prices will continue to rise on average in 2016, and that even areas with falling prices will see smaller drops.

Tinsa stats for 2015 Spain property prices are highly regarded in Spain as they are independent. As a company, it carries out property valuations for Spanish banks and property owners.
