Why such a lack of holiday rentals this year?

Is it the case that there a re lots of empty properties owned by the banks?

If this is the case is it worth visiting Garrucha or is it very very subdued?

Any input would be appreciated.

Cheers

Do you mean lack of holiday places available or lack of people wanting to rent?
I'm taking it you mean the former as I know a few Spanish families that can't find a place to rent for the first fortnight in August!
And Garrucha...so far (being only July), is having it's best start to the summer for years! Far from being subdued!

yes, I meant the former, it is good that it is busy.

However in comparison to previous years, there are a lot less holiday rentals available (listed, even if booked) & I therefore wondered why properties where not being offered for rent.

i.e. Was it because the "owners" no longer owned them?

Could also be that people are not going to arab countries , read in a paper, English tourist to Spain are up about 5% so far this year compared to last year , so flat's are more in demand so not many around to let out

I understand that Potsy, however the point I m making is not only that the holiday rentals are booked, it is that there are a lot less advertised in the area than previous years, irrespective of whether or not the have secured a booking.

I would imagine repeat bookings and the fact that there has Been a marked increase in people's finances .. Ie not the urgency to rent will have a bearing .

Hi

Perhaps the owners are a bit hesitant to advertise property that they let on the "Black Market" as the Hacienda are aware that the numbers of people arriving for holidays. do not match the amount of declared habitation.

It could be that with the slow down on forum traffic that people are advertisisng their properties elsewhere,air bnb for example,also as has been said,repeat bookings are making it not needed for owners to advertise,I myself now have a base of 3 appartments that If I want to rent I contact direct

Pottsy, I got somewhere eventually, not ideal as near water park, but it was obvious that there re more & more empty properties.

Also obvious around Garrucha that there where not as many people as there has been in the first half of August in previous years
