Football and property success coincide in Spain

football stTwo years ago, we wrote an article on Spain contrasting its footballing strength – highlighted by Real Madrid smashing the world transfer fee record for Gareth Bale – with its economic fragility. Real ended last season as Europe’s champions for a record 10th time, while rival Barcelona trumped them this year, winning a treble of domestic and European honours. But this sporting success is no longer at odds with the economic news – in fact, our latest forecasts highlight Spain as one of the continent’s hotspots.

Even in 2013, there were signs that Spain was turning a corner after several dark years of austerity and contraction. The economy returned to growth by late 2013 led by improving competitiveness and export growth. The upturn was initially slow, but has since been reinforced by a revival in domestic spending, as unemployment stabilised and then began to decline. By early 2015, Spain had become one of the Eurozone’s most dynamic economies, a sharp turnaround from the doldrums of 2010-13.

The remarkable economic turnaround is led by strong exports and, more recently, a return in consumer confidence. Although economic recovery only began officially in late 2013, the 0.9 percent GDP growth recorded at the end of Q1 2015 now places Spain ahead of some of its fastest growing Eurozone neighbours year-on-year.

The property market is further buoyed by interest from corporates, who are attracted to Valencia and other towns like Barcelona, because of its position as a centre for excellence in sectors such as health, design, research, sport
