Our Q2 2018 provincial sales figures give us an indication of which provinces have the highest international market share. By looking at which areas have risen or fallen since last year we can begin to see trends in the popularity of various regions.
Top in terms of foreign market share, with an increase in sales of 17% year on year, is Alicante, just south of Valencia on the Costa Blanca. Here, just under half (48%) of sales during the period were to international buyers. This is an area that remains ever-popular thanks to its expat communities and warm, sunny climate.
The Balearics and Las Palmas are the only islands appearing in the top 10 provinces by total house sales, and sales in both have fallen year on year by 20% and 1% respectively. It’s worth noting that sales in Barcelona have fallen by 10% over the same period, while the smaller city areas of Murcia (+ 26% YOY), Seville (+ 18% YOY) and Alicante (+ 17% YOY) have seen good growth in their sales.
