The “Metropolitan Areas” followed with a decline of 6.5% compared to January 2011.
Since 2007, when the crisis first hit, prices have fallen sharply with the “Mediterranean Coast” recording an overall decline of 33.1%, over a third of its value. “Capitals and Major Cities” follow with an overall decline of 27.8%, followed by “Metropolitan Areas” with 26.3%, the “Balearic and Canary Islands” with 20.1% and “Other Municipalities”, which includes regions not included in the other categories, with 19.9%.
