While in the region, the increase in the price per square metre is 13%, in Malaga city it is almost 22% and close to 20% in the case of Malaga province, the data shows.

If Malaga is the most expensive city and province in the region, it is followed by Cadiz: in Cadiz city, the price per square metre is 2,855 euros, while in the province it is close to 1,900 euros. And in third place is Seville, costing 2,500 euros per square metre in the city, and an average of 1,677 euros in the province.

is the average price of housing in Jaén, the cheapest province in Andalucía.

The cheapest province in the Andalucía region is Jaén, the data shows. In the city of Jaén, the square metre price was 1,132 euros at the end of April. In the province, this fell to 719 euros.

Jaén and Malaga, therefore, are the two extremes of the Andalusian property market: the former is the only one where average prices are below 1,000 euros per square metre and the latter is also the exception with prices above 3,000.
