This number is removed from the average prices of sale of the houses that announce in the vestibules of the Facilí group and which the 6.7 percent in 2006 grew, up to 298,628 euros.
Annual the average wage gross is removed from the National Institute of Estadi'stica (INE) and the Tributary Agency, that a 2.7 percent grew, until the 18,182 euros.
The increase in the time necessary to pay a house is generalized in all the independent communities, safe in Andalusia, the Rioja and Castile the Spot, benefitted by the reduction in the price from the house and the ascent from the wages in these communities.
