Not that you’d know that it coming up to Christmas from the weather here in Las Palmas; after a few days of rain it’s been warm and sunny most days in November.
The Canary Islands are trending on Kyero’s property search lists with three Gran Canaria spots in the Top 20 property search destinations in Spain; Playa del Inglés, Puerto Rico and Maspalomas. In total, there are seven Canary Islands spots in the top twenty hotspots.

The city is now in full winter mode with lots of Scandinavian, British and German visitors staying in its hotels and apartments. Demand for property is high, prices are rising gradually and rental yield for short-term lets is excellent.
It makes this winter an excellent time to buy a holiday or rental investment apartment in Las Palmas.
