Juanma Lamet, Expansión journalist, moderated the debates.
Julio Rodríguez López, economist and former president of the Banco Hipotecario, in the presentation prior to the beginning of the panel in which he presented the different statistics collected on the portal preciosdeviviendas.es, drew attention to the usefulness of these. "The statistics of housing prices are an indicator of economic growth, as well as an indispensable element to estimate the value of real estate. Finally, these are indicators of financial stability, that allow us to know their influence on the consumer price index, by affecting the rent, and make it possible to make territorial and international comparisons," he said.
Just like Julio Rodríguez, the rest of the panelists also insisted on the positive contribution that statistics of housing prices have for the whole real estate sector.
