The economic crisis led to a slowdown in housing construction in Spain. During the last two years it seems that the situation is beginning to overcome. In coastal areas are flourishing urban development.
It should be noted that the process of buying a new home differs somewhat from buying second-hand housing. In this case the seller is the promoter and housing can not be built yet, hence the operating present some differences.
In Europahus you list the steps so you do not miss:

The Act provides protection buyer for the amounts paid on account during the construction phase. The sponsor should endorse those amounts, as it is obliged to take out insurance and deposit them in a bank account separate from other funds.
