Residential property sales in Spain increased by 23.6% in May year on year, the highest figures since January 2013, the latest official figures show.
The figures from the National Statistics Institute also show that home sales have now increased year on year for four months in a row. However, sales did fall back slightly from the year on year figure of 29% recorded in April.
The second hand market and, to a lesser extent, sales of new homes, were responsible for the May increase, up by 26.7% and 12% year on year respectively.
