Spain is a country of homeowners. Housing conditions are some of the most crowded in the EU, with an average 3.3 people per dwelling. In Spain, 82% of the population live in homes that they or their families own. Approximately 44% of men and 30% of women aged 30 still live in the parental home, and only 5% of 65-year olds live alone. 

Although the housing market is currently experiencing a slowdown, massive construction of new homes and apartments started in the last few years is still underway in most of the big cities. Many people are moving into brand-new homes and apartments just outside the cities, where there are not yet other facilities such as schools, supermarkets, and hospitals.


The Ministry of Housing (Ministerio de Vivienda) is the main agency responsible for housing in Spain. Autonomous regions in Spain such as Catalunya, Galicia, Andalucia, etc. are authorized to complement national housing policies with their own regulations and resources. Therefore, in addition to consulting the Ministry of Housing, the government of the region in which you wish to live should also be researched for specific policies and laws of their own. To further complicate things, some of the autonomous regions have their own language, and in some cases, such as in Catalunya (where Barcelona is located, and where many Barcelona hotels are available), the region’s language is considered primary over Spanish, so documents and meetings will automatically be written and conducted in that language.
