Where does 'Vuestro' come from?

Aunque tengo una casa muy lujosa, prefiero la vuestra. I'm confused. Where does 'vuestro' come from? What happened to 'tuyo' and 'suyo'?

Hola Ricky,

"vuestro" is the possessive for "yours" in plural, so, it refers to people in plural. The possession is that of more than one person, as opposed to "yours" in singular "tuyo"/ "suyo". 

We have two different lessons for possessives. I imagine you've practised both. Here they are, just in case:

How to say mine, yours, his, hers, its, theirs

How to say ours and yours (plural)

Saludos

Inma
