This year’s major housing fair, SIMED, opened on Thursday in Málaga’s congress center and there is optimism to be found among the 70 exhibitors. “There is a relatively high demand in the province of Málaga – especially among foreign buyers. Therefore, prices have not fallen, and no construction has stopped,” says the developer Neinor Homes. In general, the industry is of course worried about the country’s future unemployment and economy, but, surprisingly, only a few industry people are worried about the housing market.
“Most people agree that the crisis is temporary. Unlike ten years ago, the banks are not in trouble and continue to provide home loans, which is fundamental to the market,” says Christian Boesen from homes-abroad.com. We have seen a 35 percent increase in traffic on our site this year, which is far above expectations he says.
Spanish Minister of Health: “Vaccines will arrive in early 2021”
The Spanish Minister of Health, Salvador Illa, has once again confirmed that the first Covid-19 vaccines will reach Spain first in the new year – perhaps even around Christmas.
In a major online conference, organized by the Catalan PR agency Intermédia Comunicació, the Minister stresses that we will be living with the virus until May. Only then will you have received the necessary number of units on an ongoing basis to be able to vaccinate a sufficiently large amount of the population to get rid of the virus. During the same conference, Salvador Illa assured that no Covid-19 vaccine will come on the market without joint EU approval.
