The average cost of property in Spain has fallen by over 10% from June 2008 – June 2009 according to the published Spanish property price index. The figures published by the Ministry of Housing however, indicates that property prices have fallen by just 8.6% over the same period, but this does not include Spanish social housing; making both reports a good indication of the property market value in Spain today.
