‘bad bank’ Sareb

Balance of Spain's bad bank Sareb

Sareb: Criticised In Spain, Praised In Brussels And Germany

Judging by the latest valuations which have appeared in the press, the balance of the first five years of Spain’s bad bank, Sareb, is little less than disastrous.

Housing market

What will happen with housing prices in Spain?

According to Bankinter’s analysts, there will be a moderate increase in housing prices (around 3-5 % between 2016 and 2017), and it will only happen in certain places. So Spain’s property prices will not return to the pre-crisis record highs, but will reach levels similar to that in 2004.
