The number of houses sold in Spain during 2019 fell by 3.3 percent in comparison with 2018, according to data published by the Spanish Statistical Office (INE) on Wednesday.

The INE attributes the sales fall to a decline in the number of transactions involving second-hand or houses previously lived.
