Ibiza has long been a popular
destination with British property buyers. 
Combining breathtaking coastal landscapes with a vibrant club culture,
the island has been a haven for wealthy property investors for years.

Now, a local property expert
believes that the market for luxury Ibiza property remains strong, despite some
price falls.  Keep reading to learn

Property in Ibiza remains a solid investment

Amanda Marti, a leading Ibiza
real estate agent, says: “Remarkably, given obvious global economic conditions,
this winter was one of our busiest on record with the bulk of buyers looking
for a property priced between 1 and 2.5 million euros.

“With a scarcity of bank lending,
most of these intend to purchase with cash and hope to do a deal on the quoted
asking price. Property in Ibiza is selling, the market is moving, provided the
price is right.”

Buyers in Ibiza are benefiting
from lower prices and an increased availability of mortgage finance.  Ms Marti adds: “New mortgage options
are appearing on an almost daily basis in Ibiza with 70 per cent loan-to-value
available for non-residents on the condition that the projected monthly
repayment does not exceed 40 per cent of the buyer’s income.”

Ibiza is a small island and strict
planning regulations mean that there is often a lack of supply of homes on the
island.  So, while values of
properties have fallen by around a quarter in the last few years, the island
has not been as hard hit as other Spanish destinations.

Property in Ibiza remains a
solid investment, and with regular flights to the island from the UK, it’s the
perfect location for a second or holiday home.”
