Which property buyer are you?

The digital nomads

Digital Nomads finding home in Mallorca

The desire for fast internet connection and ease of travel

In the last five years, Mallorca has become a property magnet for digital entrepreneurs. It was a trend that was growing organically until COVID-19 hit in 2020 – causing property enquiries from abroad to skyrocket. Business owners (in places like London and Berlin) were happier working from home but felt the need for a better quality of life. Hourly commutes on the train felt like a waste of time and outgoings like office electricity bills seemed unnecessary. Fed up of the city, this new wave of buyers are now looking for space and sunshine. They’re young, bright and ready to move their business to wherever their hearts take them (just so long as there’s WIFI).

Why Mallorca?

  • Home to Spain’s third biggest airport with connections world-wide
  • Strong international business community and numerous co-working spaces
  • Healthier work/life balance with less time spent commuting
  • 4G internet connection in and around Palma
  • Easy to network with English widely spoken

    Insider thought

    • “Even though it’s not as developed as Barcelona, Mallorca has great potential for a start-up scene and the digital nomad community. I use my 4G connection nearly all the time for video calls and meetings. Don’t think living in Palma is crazy city living either, within 15 minutes you can be in the mountains or on a beach – the balance is perfect.”

        • “The upward price trend over recent years reflects a general development in the longer term. Owners in Mallorca can continue to rest assured that the price of their property will retain its value. The 66% increase in online enquiries we received in Q1 2021 reflects the desirability of living in Mallorca and the security the island brings.”

        The slow-seekers

        Retiring in Mallorca

        In want of tranquil sanctuary after years of hard work

        The plan to relocate to the Mediterranean upon retiring is what many buyers in Northern Europe work towards for years. After decades of a 9-5 job and grey weather, it’s seems only right that as we get older we put our health first and relax in the sunshine. Mallorca promises this healthier way of life with 300 days of sunny weather per year and a nourishing Mediterranean diet. Temperatures rarely fall below 12 degrees which creates the perfect environment to exercise outdoors. Retirees who choose to purchase property here can live well in the warmth surrounded by plenty of international friends.

        Why Mallorca?

        • Warm summers and mild winters
        • Five private hospitals and lots of international medical centres
        • 400km of hiking trails and 1,250km of cycle paths
        • Easy to travel and visit family in Europe
        • A thriving international community
