In this way, in the hospitality sector, the hardest hit by the pandemic, almost 60% of jobs were affected, followed by leisure with more than 40% and real estate, in sixth place, with more than 15%.

In the Bank of Spain’s annual report, which focuses on its analysis of the coronavirus crisis, the entity stresses that there is considerable uncertainty over what percentage of employees currently in ERTEs (almost 2 million people at the end of June) will end up retaining their jobs. That is the variable that will have the most impact on the dynamism of the real estate market.
