One-third of Girona’s homes are purchased by foreigners
The data of the College of Registrars leave no doubt.
In 2017, of the 10,353 homes sold in the demarcation, 3,183 bought them from foreigners, that is, 30.7% of the total.
A percentage that is more than double that the state average, of 13.5%, and that the average of Catalonia, of 13.7%.
But, in addition, the sale of homes to foreigners in the province increased almost 20.5% last year.
Thus, in Girona, the sale of homes to foreigners is again gaining weight, after a setback in 2016, and is among the favorite Spanish demarcations for buyers abroad.
In fact, the fourth quarter of 2017 only surpassed the provinces of Alicante, with 42.8% of foreign buyers; Tenerife, with 38.5%, and the Balearic Islands, with 35.4%.
