It is a fact that the property boom of 10 years ago is not going to return for a very long time. The market will recover gradually but a lot of people have been severely hit by falling prices and negative equity, which has only been made easier to accept by those with mortgages due to low interest rates. The outcome is that potential purchasers have become even more discerning about finding exactly what they want and how much they are prepared to spend.
As the owner of a second home you generally have two choices, hold onto what you’ve got or alternatively sell to buy another property or realise your investment. Homes that are only used during the summer months by family or are perhaps rented out can become neglected over time and often a blind eye is turned to old fashioned kitchens and bathrooms as, being holiday homes, they are viewed in a different light. As for swimming pools, well not only have the aesthetics changed in recent years, but also the technology has progressed making modern pools much easier and more cost effective to maintain. These are the type of things that purchasers and increasingly holiday renters are putting top of their list…and if your property isn’t up to scratch this will have to be reflected in the price. With so many properties on the market, now is the time to make sure yours remains amongst those on top of the ‘must view’ or ‘must book’ list.
Alternatively, you may have no intention of selling but would like to upgrade various elements of your property or swimming pool to keep it in prime condition…? Or, perhaps you are first time buyers looking to secure a sound property investment for the future…? Now has never been a better time to take advantage of lower prices and, as mentioned above, there are bargains to be found especially if some renovation work is needed. You could also consider buying a piece of land and building the full time residence or holiday home of your dreams. Again, this could provide an excellent return on investment with many plots available in good locations around the island. The main thing that stops people embarking on major projects is the worry and concern about being ripped off by ‘cowboy builders’, not speaking the language and not understanding the planning regulations and legal implications when building or renovating a property in Spain.
However Menorca is different, not least that the island has a close affinity with the UK having been under British rule for nearly 100 years in the 18th century. A long ago time maybe, but the roots are still there. There is a reputable and long established construction businesses on the island that takes pride in offering an honourable, cost effective and reliable service. Whether a simple renovation or large scale new build project, we all have a passion to see our island evolve through honest and sustainable building methods.
