Mallorca, Ibiza and Menorca are more desirable than ever as second home destinations. “The Balearic Islands clearly lead the property market in the Mediterranean region”, says Florian Hofer, Managing Director of Engel & Völkers on the Balearic Islands. “For ten years we have seen a growing number of property transactions on this island group involving international buyers. In 2018, the percentage of foreign customers was around 40 percent,” he continues. Potential buyers appreciate the Mediterranean flair, the impressive countryside, the easy access with short flight times and the excellent safety. The high demand on the islands is focussed on a limited supply of high quality objects in prime locations.
