José Masip, talks to El Economista a Spanish daily newspaper which focuses on economic, financial and business affairs about trends in the real estate sector in the short-medium term.

Among the main trends in the real estate sector, the journalist highlights the tendency of banks to accelerate the process of releasing toxic assets in the face of pressure from bank supervisors.

This figure would exceed 50,000 million euros that were sold in 2017.
