Barcelona city council has raffled 184 low-cost short-lease apartments to help young people move out of the family home and promote a regular turnover of tenants. Over 11,017 people aged 25-35 applied for the flats, which have a monthly rent of around 300 and a five-year lease. The cheap housing offer follows a similar raffle in 2003, when over 1,000 apartments were up for grabs. Of the 184 apartments on offer this year, 140 flats (four of which are designed for disabled tenants) are located in La Sagrera and 44 in Fort Pienc.
