According to the latest data from the National Institute of Statistics (INE), a total of 26,579 home mortgages were taken out in May, for which the banks loaned 2,776.9 million euros, 33.1% more than a year earlier and 8.6% more than in April 2016.

The average value of these mortgage loans stood at 104,480 euros, which represents a slight decline compared to May 2015.

The Euribor remains the major type of reference, as it was used in 93.8% of the contracts.
