A report released today by Spanish portal idealista has shown that house prices have suffered in the Spanish regions with greater Covid-19 infection rates. Regions such as Murcia, Andalucia and the Balearic Islands which have had relatively low infection rates are seeing house prices rise whereas Madrid, Navarra and Castilla & Leon, where infections have been greater, are seeing falling prices.
