The prices of resale houses and apartments in Spain recorded a slight increase of 2.1% during the month of January this year, with the average price per m2 of 1,597 euros, according to the latest price index published by the internet website Idealist.

At the same time, the highest growth was recorded in Valencia (4%), Tarragona (3.9 %) and Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (3.8%). The biggest drop was recorded in Caceres (-3.1%), Avila (-1.3%) and Soria (-0.8%).
