Adjustments continue to dominate the rental market. According to the director of Estudios de piso.com, Ferran Font, “the self-regulatory power of leasing has been demonstrated, although perhaps not to the extent of the purchasing power of families.” In this sense, the expert has pointed out that inflation, at its highest level since September 1992, could cause incomes to change their sign: “The contracts referenced to the CPI that have to be renewed could raise the monthly payment to tenants, just at a time when demand has more difficulties to make ends meet due to the general increase in prices of goods and services, especially energy and food ”, Font revealed.
On the other hand, the rise in the price of housing for sale could favor the rebound in rents, given that “it is the path that those who are now buying with the intention of putting that property up for rent could take. In this way, they would shield the profitability of the asset ”, commented the manager. In any case, Font states that “many owners will prefer to maintain the price rather than raise it if the tenant who lives in the house is a punctual payer, since the fear of not recovering their house in a timely manner joins the possibility that the house will be late in being re-rented or that the tenant who comes after does not fit the desired profile ”.
