Property Sales in Murcia, Spain


Good news for homeowners

A new study has revealed that he price per square meter of homes in the Murcia region has increased by 12.7% for the first half of 2007, against an 8.2% rise for 2006. The study by Caja Espaņa shows that this figure continues to rise in Murcia gaining momentum in the last three months and bucking the national trend.

The most recent data for the last three months shows a rise of 9.5% and the slight drop is due to a fall in the price of older homes, whose prices rose by 8.2% in the first quarter of the year, but by only 4.8% in the second quarter.

Urban land has risen in value by 36.8% in the same period, against the 11.4% growth demonstrated in 2006.

An analysis of the regions labour market and inflation for the first quarter of the year, also made by Caja Espaņa shows that the Murcia region has one of the lowest labour costs amongst the autonomous communities.

Inflation in the region rose slightly over the first quarter from 2.4% to 2.7%. The survey also shows that there has been steady job creation in this period, over and above the national average, and as a result there has been a drop in the unemployment statistics for Murcia.

Summarising Caja Espaņa stated that the region would have an active working population and although growth would slow there would still be a noticeable trend above the national average.

The study also shows important levels of growth in the construction and service sectors; however employment trends especially in the construction sector can be a bit erratic.

The number registered as unemployed with INEM has increased 2.9% for the year on year comparison and whilst this is considered a significant increase, there is a tendency for the figures to fall during the last two trimesters.
