From the real estate portal their director of Studies, Ferran Font , considers that the statistics on usual residence “breaks with the downward trend after 20 consecutive quarters, and has a very important impact at the social level and the insecurity they perceive the owners of the units after five years of” good news”.

Font summarizes the evolution of the evictions in Spain: “While 54.6% of the executions correspond to mortgages granted in full a real estate bubble, between the years 2005 and 2008, only 6.5% correspond to the last 5 years. The Comunitat Valenciana and Catalonia leads this statistic.
