The price of housing rental does not give up. Rents rose 5.89% year-on-year, until closing the month of July with an average price of 10.24 euros/m2, according to the monthly rental price report prepared by pisos.com. “Supply is scarce and the apartments are rented out in a matter of days, and this taking into account that the conditions required for demand are increasingly harsh and the maintenance of the homes is not as frequent as would be desirable”, says Ferran Font , Director of Pisos.com Studies.
The increases were transferred practically to the entire country. And it is that only in five provincial capitals did rental income become cheaper compared to last year. The most intense cut was that of Ourense, with a decrease of 2.93%. It was followed by the fall in Oviedo, where the rental price was 1.08% below the previous year in July. Rents in A Coruña (-0.57%), San Sebastián (-0.41%) and Bilbao (-0.14%) were adjusted by less than one percentage point.
The behavior of the other provincial capitals was very different, with 14 of them experiencing double-digit increases. In Valencia the rise reached 16.62%, placing the rental price at 10.98 euros/m2. They were followed by increases in Lugo (15.55%), Cádiz (15.11%), Alicante (14.94%) and Tarragona (13.78%).
