Why Renting Properties In Mallorca Is Cheaper Than Hotels

Aug 5, 2008
During my first trip to Mallorca last year, I was mesmerised by the sheer beauty of the beach and the large Spanish properties that overlooked the sea view. The perfect place for a perfect home, I thought to myself. However, with the recent worry of the Spanish property bubble bursting, it became extremely apparent to me that this was an ideal spot to buy a property which would be a good investment for renting out to tourists.

There were certainly an abundance of Irish and British tourists in this particular region. However, they were not so noticeable in the ever-trendy capital of Palma, whereby the atmosphere was much more cosmopolitan and modern. The properties in Mallorca are traditionally spacious, tiled, with wide or sliding window doors, indoor fan and a balcony. Small apartments generally come with light furnishing, bringing as much air as it can into the living rooms.

Some properties in Mallorca are more expensive than other properties around Mallorca. This depends upon their location and size. In comparison the UK property prices, these are by far more affordable and more valuable because of their ideal locations. However, some properties are situated in the countryside and may not be near local amenities. In this case, it is always a good idea to research the location, along with the transport links in this area.

From my own observation, the types of properties in Mallorca, which are currently being rented out to holidaymakers, are flats, apartments and small houses. Apartments and flats are easy to rent out, as these come with a reception desk and security at the front of the building. The property itself is generally maintained by the landlord, therefore, if you are an overseas owner, you will need to hire or make sure to take regular visits in order to keep the property at its optimum level.

Other properties in Mallorca, can be in the form of a small villa, which is fast becoming a popular place to stay especially if the people renting are a family, couples or groups of friends. This allows the holidaymakers to have their own independence, provide privacy and cater for themselves. Many villas do have a cleaning service, which may be something to consider if you are looking to invest in a villa. Some villas are so luxurious that they come with their own swimming, golf course and front walkway. These villas are higher up in the price bracket, but make for a good investment and alternative to hotels.

One thing that is for certain, Mallorca is a place, which thrives on their tourist attraction. This is one of the most popular place to holiday in Spain, as it is close to main party attractions such as Magaluf and only a boat ride away from Ibiza. Investing, buying or renting is a good option for anyone looking to make this place a second home, holiday home or possible money-making opportunity, provided they have spent time researching the legal policies and the facts about Spain.
