This, coupled with a continued expansion in wealth generation across the world, means that international demand has widened to include cities that were hit hard by the downturn, where returns on investment are expected to be more appealing in the near future.

After years in the doldrums, the Spanish property market is showing renewed vitality and nowhere more so than in its capital, where values have climbed by 5% over the course of last year.
