Scam? What are you talking about. Most people buy from supermarkets. As a malaguno i think the figures quoted here are reasonabke an s good guide, especialy post pandemic.

Don't forget the scam factor If you look like a tourist or even look different or open your mouth in English. Take bananas. No prices will be listed. Or the scale will be adjusted to charge you more. Southern Countries are 100 scam. It's their main source of income scamming anyone who is not from there.

Idealista is the most reliable indicator of rent and purchase prices in Spain. At the bottom of the page you will get the average price/m2 for the area you're searching in.

I suggest that the "rent per month" be reviewed. Between October 2016 and October 2017 prices have increased by 100%, sometimes even more. I read Malaga newspapers and property rental or purchase is becoming unaffordable to most Malageños. I look at the same prices from the Canadian perspective and prices make no sense anymore, just as taxi prices in Malaga.
