1. Gran Canaria rental prices increase: the figures
According to figures released this week, the cost of renting a property on Gran Canaria increased by 1% last month. The average price per square metre rose to €6,38. The rest of the Canary islands stayed the same, but capital Las Palmas de Gran Canaria saw the most noticeable increase in prices for rental.
This is down to the Gran Canaria capital housing eight out off the 14 most expensive streets to rent property across the Canary Islands. And so, a property on exclusive Paseo de Chil costs on average of €3,067 a month to rent. Nearby, renting a property on dead-end (rather than dead-beat) street Calle Chopin will require you waving adios to €2,833 on a monthly basis.
