Unprecedented number of properties for sale

Post by Rickse28 » April 1st, 2020, 9:01 pm

Hi all,
I was looking at the Idealista property comprar/alquilar website, dreaming of what I might live in when all this world drama is over... I had remembered a tip by one of you guys, that if a property has not been sold quickly it would be worth a try to contact the owner and suggest renting it for a year or so.
So I went to the website, inputted 'everything' for sale and was horrified to see nearly 3,000 properties on the market. I narrowed it down to 'casas o chalets' and 'casas rusticas' with more than 'dos banos' and still saw over 1,400 properties for sale.
I am horrified - are these overseas owners who have seen the writing on the wall for international travel?

That could be the case, I have wondered if we will still have the same freedoms or will be able to afford to travel as much when/if this situation is ever under control.
