Builders and large real estate believe that the reduction of VAT can animate real estate here year-end. Last Friday, the Council of Ministers agreed to lower from 8 to 4% the VAT levied the purchase of new housing. The measure, which will be extended until the 31st of December, has been well received by the builders and the large estate, not so much by the smaller companies.

Regardless of the economic difficulties, who decides to buy stumbles with prices that continue to fall (with what become doubts) and a few banks that give few credits and with tougher conditions. This is compounded by the fact that banks and savings banks are already a fundamental actor in the sector, and not only by his power of Finance. The crisis has left thousands of apartments, real estate assets that weighed in the balances, and those who want to RID in her hands. Therefore, at present, banking grants especially mortgages to sell their own homes.

In any case, the reduction of VAT from 8 to 4% has been welcomed by the large estate. Already on Friday, the group that brings together the major real estate, the G-14, applauded the measure of the Government because it can help boost a sector very punished by the crisis. It will activate the market also the President of the Association of real estate developers of Madrid (Asprima), Jose Manuel Galindo, it welcomed the measure.

In Catalonia, the builders have applauded the initiative. The President of the Asociacion promoters and constructors of buildings of Barcelona (APCE), Enric Reyna, believes that this initiative will facilitate the departure of part of the housing stock still pending sale. For his part, President of the Guild of builders of works the Barcelona and Comarcas, Nestor Turro, has also valued positively the measure. However, it believes that the reduction of this tax will not be sufficient if only one to revive the sector and that it should be accompanied by other initiatives to boost significantly the construction and the generation of occupation.
