Houses and Flats for sale in Spanish Banks and Savings banks

The current economic crisis has forced many Spanish banks and building societies to put properties (the majority houses and flats) up for sale at significantly discounted prices or with some very interesting credit facilities for the consumer. The properties on sale are the result of repossessed properties from individual or business clients.
