new kitchen

What would your new kitchen look like?

If you are tired of putting your turkey into the same old oven and your kitchen is looking just as dreary, have you considered what your new kitchen would look like?

Ignore the walls, corners and current space and dream. For us it would be a modern spacious family kitchen diner. There would be beautiful grey units with plenty of storage and a central breakfast bar where the family could come together.

Team this with the latest tech in the form of cooking and refrigeration and some stunning wall and floor tiles and you have our idea of a dream kitchen. What is yours though?

There is so much to choose from and your kitchen update may just be updating the cabinetry and tiling. It may just be a splash of paint, but we encourage you to dream big with the kitchen space as it is the heart of any home, the place people congregate and the one area top of any new buyers list.

A bespoke kitchen is also the top of many people’s wish list. Be individual and consider how functional you need the space to be. Classy kitchens these days are so aesthetically pleasing and can be more of a design feature in any home in Mallorca.

Here it is all about how you use the space. When families are allowed to come together once again this is the place they will be and here is perfect if that kitchen/diner/family room opens up seamlessly into your outside space. Fabulous for the summer and for balmy autumnal days too. Have you considered a skylight or opening up an area to let more light in?

If you are currently in an older property that sections off rooms it would probably benefit from an extension or a reform. Our experience in this area means we can manage all of this for you when you are not in the country. Our multi-lingual team are here to ensure any building project is managed from end to end without you needing to be on site.

So if your’e kitchen could do with a facelift, contact us today.

Why now is a good time to buy in Mallorca

 

Spain and particularly Mallorca has been a popular place to buy a second home or relocate to for many years. It has an enticing mix of friendly people, luxury resorts and stunning and ever-changing countryside where you can enjoy an active outdoor lifestyle. In fact, here are three great reasons why now is a good time to buy in Mallorca.

Spain has been a top holiday destination for over 10 years
Mainly for this reason, if you purchase a property in Mallorca as an investment you are guaranteed an excellent return on investment. The rise in popularity of sites like Airbnb means great apartments and stylish villas are more popular to book than hotels. Mallorca has been the place to see and be seen for decades and tourists come here not just for the climate alone. Visitors can never be stuck for things to here as there are fabulous championship golf courses, up-market marinas and the great outdoor lifestyle means cycling, sailing, walking, hiking and horse riding are popular.

Around 300 sunny days a year
Mallorca enjoys around 300 days of sunshine a year and this means being outdoors year-round is a real possibility. This is a real beach holiday destination and so you can be assured of rentals for a good portion of the season. Long hot summer days are when tourists tend to book in the main, but during the temperate spring and winter seasons visitors often love to trade the icy winters of the UK and other parts of Europe for the milder days in Mallorca.

Fabulous property prices
One thing that is currently making the Mallorca an attractive proposition are property prices. They are rising but have not yet peaked meaning that now is a great time to buy before any further de-valuing of the pound. If you haven’t taken a look at what your euros can get within your budget click here. We have a fantastic selection of properties on the island and these cater for everyone’s budget. Whether you are a seasoned property investor looking for a luxury villa in Andratx or someone looking to buy an apartment in chic Palma, we can help you find the property that works for your budget and lifestyle. Our expertise will help you through the buying process so you’ll be the owner of your new Spanish home in no time at all.

Making your £ work for you

 

With the unsettling political situation in the UK making the £/euro exchange rate unsteady, this is the time to think about buying your property in Mallorca. With refreshed hopes on the horizon for a Brexit deal the exchange rate has risen to almost 1:14 today and though it certainly isn’t the lowest the exchange rate has been over recent months, it could tumble over coming weeks depending on the outcome of Brexit.
.
The property market here in Mallorca is buoyant and there continues to be some really great deals on off-plan property, so if you are looking at a way to pay for your property in set stages, this is probably the best option for you. This way you can pay a smaller deposit whilst the £/Euro rate is lower and hope then that the unsettling times stabilise.

If you are in a position to either get a mortgage or are a cash buyer looking to buy outright, then picking up a key ready property in a stunning location could be done fairly quickly ensuring you get good value. If you are an investment buyer looking to let out property and earn an income then your investment could start paying for itself in no time at all as visitors to the island remain high.

This is no wonder with a fabulous climate and superb range of outdoor pursuits to fill the time of a holidaymaker. Championship golf courses, great beaches, fine dining and amazing shopping facilities make Mallorca a lovely destination. Couple that with beautiful countryside and chic Palma that begs to be explored and you have an instant recipe for holiday success.

If you are looking to retire here then finding that fabulous villa overlooking the sea or a great little apartment on a golf course won’t be too difficult. Talk to us today about some of the fabulous property deals we have on the market and how to lock in an exchange rate.
