New investment through 'leasing' on real estate amounted to 231.2 million euros up to May, 19.7% less, while that of personal property grew by 14.2%, to a total of 3,901 million euros.
By region, leasing contracts worth 829.1 million euros were signed in Madrid, 23.7% more than in the first six months of 2022, while in Catalonia the turnover totaled 626.5 million euros, with a decrease of 4.6%.
