According to the head of studies of the portal, Mr. Font, the interest of the demand “is not touched and sunk”, the search for housing is still in the crosshairs of profiles with savings that have maintained their source of income during these months. Potential buyers will seize the opportunity if there is a downside market. Regarding financing, the granting of mortgages has fallen not only due to the limitations in notaries and registries, but also due to the prudence that dominates the decisions of citizens at the moment.
