The interest shown in him can be seen in a variety of statistics and results. In particular, 23.028 million euros, which the investors have invested last year in the purchase of real estate, are in 330% more than in 2013 and the number of operations has increased to 197.

The report on investment in real estate in Spain in 2014, prepared by the Spanish Association of financial and strategic consultants (IREA) presents a clear picture of how investment was distributed in Spain last year. For consultants of the association last year showed a sharp increase in investment in the real estate market, which was motivated by the context of improving the economy and restoring confidence in the situation in the country by investors international.
The increase of investments has exceeded all expectations for 2014. According to official data, the investments have increased in 330% to 23.028 million euros.

Such a strategy of investors, in your opinion, is motivated by the "tremendous pressure" exerted on the liquidity of the central banks of the largest economies in the world, who are "seeking the benefit with minimum risk in the housing market as an alternative to the stock market or public debt. Moreover, this trend will continue in the coming months.", – explains Mikel Echavarren.
