The "Capitals and large cities" and "Balearic and Canary Islands" stand out in January with the largest increases in prices in the last twelve months, with growths of 5.1% and 4.1%, respectively. All the groups analyzed in the index show values higher than those of a year ago.
"The residential market maintains moderate price growth, with greater intensity in the islands and large cities. Despite the fact that the average price in Spain has recovered 7.6% of its value since the minimum it played in the crisis, it is still 38.3% below the maximum reached in 2007," says Jorge Ripoll, director of the Tinsa Studies Service. The 1 410 points registered in January in the General Index place the price of housing finished at the levels of June 2013.
