A

s we enter 2022, the KENSINGTON research team is analysing developments in the Balearic real estate market. Our aim is to help you assess the current and future market situation in a Mediterranean destination that has been a particular focus for buyers of exclusive first and second homes for decades. Our analyses are based on two principals: Firstly, empirical data collections from Spanish authorities, statistics offices, valuation companies and real estate portals have been taken into account. Secondly, we have drawn on the expertise of KENSINGTON franchisees on the archipelago to provide a qualified and up-to-date assessment of developments on the micro and sub-markets of the Balearic Islands in particular. In our initial step, we describe the significance of the Balearic Islands’ holiday property market in the context of current health and economic developments with current data and facts. Then we examine a total of ten submarkets - in addition to Ibiza & Formentera and Menorca, this includes eight other areas in Mallorca.

AN EXCLUSIVE REAL ESTATE MARKET

T

he Balearic Islands are not only one of the most popular holiday destinations in Europe, but they are also among the leading real estate markets in Spain, along with the major metropolitan areas of Madrid and Barcelona. The characteristics top markets such as these include not only great appeal with high price levels but also a distinct resilience in the face of crises, which promises investors value stability. Even during the financial and real estate crisis of 2008 to 2012, we observed that losses in value were smaller in the Balearic Islands than in the rest of Spain. It was in areas like Madrid and the island of Mallorca where the economic engine first started up again in 2014. The current situation shows many parallels: although the health crisis in 2020 caused a clear reluctance to buy on the Balearic Islands for months, also due to travel restrictions, the price level remained stable. Even in the 4th quarter of 2020, the real estate market left this crisis behind. And in 2021, KENSINGTON then experienced a real run-on real estate. Official figures back this up: In the first nine months of 2021, sales of privately financed housing

KENSINGTON | Balearic Islands Real Estate Market Report 2021 / 2022

in the Balearic Islands increased by 53% compared to the same period in 2020 (from 7,863 to 12,038). The value of these transactions was already 84% higher from €2.42 billion to €4.46 billion. (Source: Ministerio de Transportes). The percentage difference between the quatity and monetary value of the transactions can be explained by the fact that properties in the upper price segment are currently particularly sought after. On the Balearic Islands, around 23% of Spanish residential offers are above one million euros. In addition, property prices on the islands tended upwards in 2021. Land, houses, fincas and flats on the Balearic Islands have increased in value every year since 2014. In December 2021,the average asking price for properties was €3,355/ m2. That is 8.1% more than in December 2020. The economic conditions for the Balearic Islands as a destination have also clearly improved. After the Corona shock, the gross domestic product in the Eurozone fell by 6.3% in 2020. If you believe the latest IMF forecasts, 2021 ended with growth of around 5%, and +4. 3% is predicted for 2022. Spain is actually one of the countries in Europe that are accelerating

this growth. However, there are still uncertainties as the resurgence of the pandemic (Omicron variant) and the pressure of inflation. Cautious optimism is spreading among experts regarding the control of the pandemic. Inflation is likely to continue to fuel prices in the new construction sector in particular, especially as many materials have already become more expensive due to the supply chain problems. Furthermore, building land is already scarce and building on the Balearic Islands is subject to ever stricter regulations. But it is precisely the fears of inflation that are currently a motive to invest in real

estate when the European Central Bank is simultaneously adhering to a zero-interest rate policy. The fact that demand is so high also has to do with changes in the public market and changing lifestyles in the digital age. The pandemic has not only given additional motivation for “remote working” via computer, but has also convinced many to invest in Mediterranean quality of life after experiencing deprivation. The buyers of the 2020s are more mixed and younger than those of the 1990s. The market has been pushed for years and very consistently by Germans, who form by far the largest buyer

group among foreigners (approx. 40%) on the Balearic Islands. In Mallorca, KENSINGTON even notes an increase in German buyers in 2021. It is worth noting that in the Spanish market as a whole, the British have been steadily losing influence since the Brexit decision in 2016. In Q3 2021, for the first time in decades, it was not the British (9.9 % share) but the Germans (10.4 %/ source: registradores.org) who were the strongest group among foreign property buyers in Spain.

Southwest The southwest is Mallorca’s most sought-after region for first and second homes. The municipalities of Andratx and Calvià offer a breath-taking landscape with dreamlike bays and the proximity to the capital Palma. Not only are there many holiday resorts here, but also the most renowned marinas such as Port d’ Andratx, Port Adriano and Portals. There are also the most exclusive properties here, as well as the largest range of properties outside Palma. In 2021, KENSINGTON achieved exceptional sales success here - the best in 20 years. In the South West in general there was an increase of 54% in transactions compared to 2020 and even great figures from 2018 and 2019 were significantly exceeded (see table). Furthermore, within

12

the last 12 months, prices have increased by around 6 to 9%, depending on the location. Port d’ Andratx again has the highest prices per square metre in Mallorca in 2021 (7,420 euros/average asking price in Dec. 2021). For example, a luxurious and modern new-build villa at Cala Llamp with unique sea views, which will be completed in 2022, is being offered by KENSINGTON for €9.84 million. Villas, however, can cost up to €25 million. As a rule, top villas range from 6 to 16 million euros. In Santa Ponça, top properties are priced at up to €6 million. In Sol de Mallorca, properties are on offer for up to €21 million. At Portals harbour, flats now cost up to €3.5 million. Exclusive living with a sea view, however, is usually available from €800,000 to €1.2 million.

Palma & Surroundings

T

he property market in Palma has recovered from the pandemic year of 2020. The number of transactions has returned to the level of 2019 with 5,100. Palma remains the place in the Balearics where by far the most properties are brokered. Asking prices at the beginning of 2022 are around 7% higher than December 2020. The capital of the Balearic Islands is not only one of the most liveable cities in the world with its radiance and variety of offers, but also a magnet for property buyers. It is the most exclusive in the western part of Son Vida, with its posh villas, luxury hotels and golf courses. Here, the average price per square metre is over 5,600 euros and there are villas that cost well over €20 million. Currently, there is even a designer villa with a sea view on offer for €65 million. Palma’s districts are also among the top locations. Ciutat Antigua/Old Town (Ø €7,500/m2), Portixol-Molinar

14

(Ø €5,950/m2) Santa Catalina (Ø €5,100/m2) and Génova (Ø €7,300/m2). The old town in particular has become even more expensive in 2021 - by 13.1%. A real city palace in the Old Town reaches about €13.5 million. Excellent flats and penthouses start at €1 million. The Génova/Cala Mayor area is interesting because there are good locations with sea views. Offers for most houses and villas in such locations are around 1.4 to 4 million euros. The holiday mile Playa de Palma also increased in price by almost 10 % in 2021, which now results in average asking prices of €3,600/m2. Apartments/penthouses here are priced between €200,000 and €1.3 million. Those looking for very classy properties in the Palma area should also keep an eye on the neighbouring villages such as Puigpunyent or Esporles - mansions here cost €10 to €20 million.

West Coast

T

he market in the central area of the Tramuntana mountains on the west coast is small but lovely. Authentic island real estate and picturesque villages characterise the scenery. There are estates of Mallorcan nobility, ancient stone houses, terraced gardens, old villages and the large valley of Sóller with many orange trees, as well as Port de Sóller directly on the sea. Deià, which has a special aura as an artists’ village, stands out - the average price per square metre in the village is among the highest in the Balearics at €6,331/ m2. However, there is little for sale in the west and new construction projects are practically non-existent. Around

16

half of the transactions were concentrated in Sóller. In total, around 280 properties changed hands in the west in 2021. Attractive village houses and estates cost up to €13 million, flats up to €800,000. Very good properties are not available for less than €400,000. It is difficult to make serious statements about price trends because the small number of transactions means that the quotas fluctuate considerably every year. At best, the figures for the larger market of Sóller, where there was a moderate decline in asking prices of 8.4 % in 2021, are more reliable (source: idealista.com). In general, the west can be classified as a seller’s market due to the scarcity of supply. KENSINGTON | Balearic Islands Real Estate Market Report 2021 / 2022

he property market in the northern municipalities between Pollensa and Santa Margalida has very different facets. The bay of Alcudia is a conurbation with a lot of tourism and a kilometre-long beach. Pollensa offers high-priced villas, large fincas and estates. Pollensa has a reputation as a town of artists. Germans aged around 40 to 50 years dominate as buyers and their share has grown even more in 2021. Sales figures and turnover have increased in 2021 compared to the pandemic year 2020 (about + 33 %). Modern villas near the beach and townhouses are in particular demand. Country properties are rare but in demand. For country houses, the mix of modern and traditional elements is

now particularly popular. Although, it is becoming more difficult to obtain building licences here, also because there is a building freeze in the urbanisations of Alcúdia, for example. In zones such as Port de Pollensa, Formentor or Pollensa-La Font, many do not sell because they cannot change, and in general there is a trend for owners to hold on to their property. Exclusive estates with mansions or country houses can reach prices of up to €12 million in the north. Good country houses are not available here for less than €1.1 million. Villas range from €720,000 to about €9 million. Flats and penthouses in Puerto de Pollensa cost around €220,000 to almost €2 million.

Centre of the island

F

rom the predominantly flat centre of the island, there is a view of the Sierra de Tramuntana in many places. The mountains protect against cold north winds in winter, and vineyards are cultivated in abundance. Especially fincas and typical Mallorcan village houses are in demand here as first and second homes. The proximity to Palma is particularly desirable. The number of sales in 2021 has reached the level of the pre-Corona era again about just under 1,100 properties changed hands. Of the 21 municipalities we assign to the area, Alarò and Santa María stand out. The two towns reach the highest price level with an average of about 3,500 and 3,800 €/m2 (asking price). Furthermore, the centre of the island is where you will find the cheapest village houses and flats in Mallorca. As a rule, you should invest at least €350,000 for a good property. Fincas with simpler houses are available from 400,000 euros. But the choice is also very large for large country estates, luxury fincas, manor houses and villas in the centre of the island in the price category from 2.5 to 7.5 million euros. Newly built estates are still available

20

here - KENSINGTON, for example, is currently offering a modern country house on a 50,000 m2 plot near Santa María for €4.5 million. NUMBER OF REAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS IN THE CENTRE OF THE ISLAND 2019-2021

allorca’s northeast has diverse communities of fans and offers a great variety in real estate. Sporting attractions include four golf courses and Rafael Nadal’s tennis academy in Manacor. Demand has risen sharply compared to 2020. Clients were more decisive and willing to compromise. From the summer onwards, demand even exceeded supply, so that the north-east is currently presenting itself as a seller’s market, which is reflected in the extreme increase in offer prices. For villa buyers, Costa de los Pinos and Canyamel are top addresses with prices up to €8 million. Mallorcan townhouses were even more in demand in 2021, which can be found above all in Artà. Unrenovated houses can be found from around €300,000. Renovated ones can be expected to cost at least €600,000. Top properties can cost up to €2 million. On the coast, well-known holiday resorts such as Cala Millor, Cala Ratjada or Sa Coma attract visitors. There are also holiday flats in residential complexes, villages or coastal urbanisations. Here, existing properties can be found from 300,000 to 500,000 euros. In new construction projects near the sea, which are very rare, the prices are considerably higher. Fincas and estates are particularly important in the property market of the north-east. The tightening of the Balearic building code from May 2020 (size of new house construction and pools in rural areas/ suelo rústico have been restricted) has had an impact on the finca market. Large stock fincas and plots with “old” projects have sold quickly in 2021 at high prices. Those looking for a top country house property have to invest between 2.5 and 6 million euros. For country houses in good locations, one should expect at least 1.5 million euros.

he area around Santanyí and Ses Salines is known for its beautiful calas and picturesque coastal villages. Further away from the beaches, old villages offer tranquillity and a lot of rural charm. There is a large German community, where people tend to be more casual. Golfers, horse fans and connoisseurs of top gastronomy get their money’s worth here. Fincas, townhouses and manor houses in the hinterland are particularly high demand. In terms of the number of property transactions, the south-east is the second smallest sub-market in Mallorca. Compared to 2020, however, sales increased significantly. In addition, prices continue to rise – in the most sought-after area around Santanyì, where the average asking price is now €3,693/m2, up more than 15% year-on-year. Due to the stricter building legislation since May 2020 and the restrictions due to the pandemic, there is a large demand for large fincas with lots of land but also for modern townhouses with a pool and land. Not only are people looking for a retreat,

Ibiza & Formentera

T

he island group of the Pitiusas with Ibiza and Formentera is not only one of the most exclusive locations for holiday properties in the Balearic Islands, but in the entire Mediterranean region. Ibiza (572 km2 area) became legendary in the 1960s amongst hippies, then developed tourism and a world-renowned party scene with the most famous DJs and big clubs. Most recently, Ibiza Town has also been a hot spot for the super-rich, Hollywood celebrities and football stars. Formentera (83 km2) has benefited from this, but offers a quieter flair with beautiful beaches - real estate is rare and expensive on the small neighbouring island. The market development in 2021 was very good for KENSINGTON.

30

Sales figures have generally risen again to 2018/2019 levels on the two islands. Ibiza can continue to offer buyers a lot of luxury at high prices and value stability. 2021 saw slight price increases. Given the size restrictions on building, large existing properties are in particular demand and are also being sold. Wealthy Spaniards, Germans and Britons in particular are now investing in these luxury markets. Eivissa (Ibiza town) remains the epicentre for the noble tourists, posh boutiques and top restaurants Here and in the south/southwest is where the most is paid per square metre. Es Cubells street in Sant Josep is the most expensive location in the Balearics because of its villa prices. The view of the rock Es Vedrà is

coveted in this area. Especially in the north, however, you can still find seclusion, nature and properties with a rustic flair. New construction is dominated by villa projects in private and secured urbanisations at prices from 3 million euros and flat projects from 300,000 euros for one-bedroom flats. Otherwise, the 20 million euros mark the upper limit for villas and country estates. Villas and fincas in Ibiza are not available for less than €1.5 million. If you want a detached house on Formentera, you have to invest 1.5 to 6.5 million euros. The cheapest entry on Ibiza is Sant Antony, where you can get 2-bedroom apartments from around €200,000.

Menorca

M

enorca (695 km2 surf ace area) has the big attractions, where special emphasis is pla ced on sustainability and nature conservation, unspoilt landscapes, tranquil natural harbours and secluded beaches The island has been a UNESCO biosphere reserve since 1993, and around 43% of its surface area is protected. Menorca has also seen an upturn in demand after the pandemic year of 2020. Similar to 2019, there were over 1,600 purchases of residential properties in 2021. Menorca’s price level is significantly lower than that of Ibiza and Mallorca. The most expensive locations are found around the two largest cities, Ciutadella and Mahón, each with around 29,000 inhabitants. In the best zones, asking prices there

32

range on average between 2,800 and 3,300 euros/m2. This is also where moderate price increases are recorded. In Ciutadella, property prices have been rising continuously since February 2020. From December 2020 to December 2021, there was an increase of 6.8%. The most expensive zone in Ciutadella is Cala Morell with an average of 2,958 euros/m2. Mahón’s rate of price increase is similarly high. Cala LLonga-Sa Mezquida reached a peak average price of almost 3,300 euros/m2. Many flats in Menorca are between 100,000 and 200,000 euros. Luxury properties in Mahón, however, can reach up to €750,000. In good locations such as Cala

Blanca or Cala Morell in the west, individual houses often cost between 350,000 and 900,000 euros. Real trophy properties in imposing locations with sea views can be up to 9.5 million euros. For the large estates typical of Menorca, the upper limit is 7.5 million euros. For luxury chalets and fincas in the price range between 1.5 and 5 million euros, there is definitely a good selection of available properties. The leading buyers on Menorca are French and Spanish, as the British have lost a lot of their influence in the market.
