Property in Mallorca

A guide to buying property in Mallorca, Spain.

Lying 250km due East of Valencia the island of Mallorca is the largest of the Balearic Islands. Distance however is never a concern as the furthest you can travel on the island is 80km meaning that nowhere is too far for a day trip. It is important to note that Public transportation outside of the city of Palma is negligible. Bus services between towns are sporadic at best and apart from the Soller tourist train there is only one other rail line which runs from Palma to Inca. To see the island properly you need a car.

Mallorca receives five million visitors each year and during the summer months the local airport, Son San Juan, becomes the busiest in the whole of Spain. Tourists are, however, concentrated in a surprisingly few coastal areas around Palma. For the more adventurous tourist Mallorca still has much to offer. After all this is where King Juan Carlos, Michael Douglas and Claudia Schiffer all come to relax.

Mallorca experienced its major growing pains in the 1960’s and 1970’s when construction was allowed to run totally unchecked. Places like Magaluf, Playa de Palma and Arenal suffered the consequences. Today huge grey hotel blocks and junky souvenir shops line their beaches. An “eco-tax” on tourists has been introduced that will be spent on improving facilities, such as water supply, and new development has been cut back. It is still possible to build a hotel, as long as you knock down a crummy one first and you can build a house as long as one existed there previously or planning permission had already been granted. These measures, combined with a surge in the number of Britons buying, the introduction of the euro and a Lear jet-load of celebrities who have headed for Mallorca in the past decade have fuelled prices.

Between 1999 and 2000 some property values doubled. This increase has now slowed a little and despite the islands recent “poshing up” you do not have to be mega rich to buy and live on Mallorca.
