Property for Sale Majorca - Mallorca Spain
Depending on your budget, it shouldn't be hard to find a property for sale in Majorca to suit your tastes. At the lower end of the scale, a small apartment on the mainland can be found for somewhere in the region of 75,000 euros or, alternatively, if it's something more palatial that you're after and you don't have any financial restrictions, then you can spend in excess of 15 million euros for a seafront villa in Puerto Andratx.
Many people opt to invest in apartments, and there are many to choose from. Of course, they vary dramatically in size and price, from studio apartments in built up blocks to sprawling five bedroom penthouses in exclusive, gated complexes, many of which have multiple swimming pools. Any property for sale in Majorca situated close to the sea will make for a good investment, as these types of property are always in high demand.
Villas are also an attractive option, as they offer seclusion and privacy. Many of the more modern properties have been designed to follow the style brought to the island by 1930s architect Pep Costa Ferrer. At the top end you can find (although you'll have to search quite hard) sprawling old buildings dating back to the 13th century and purpose-built deluxe residences with private beaches, helipads, yacht moorings and stunning views. Some of them sit in thousands of acres of their own land, with fruit groves, functioning wells and winding creeks in the grounds.
Smaller villas and houses might come within a development or stand independently, and start from 100,000 euros for somewhere more basic. An increasing number of new properties are being built within gated complexes, allowing residents to enjoy a relatively integrated yet independent existence.
Majorca is also famous for its fincas - old, stone farmhouses set in rustic, countryside locations. These can be more atmospheric and homely feeling than the more modern, purpose-built developments. Another alternative is to build your own residence or restore a dilapidated one. This can be of great satisfaction to the owner, being both less expensive and more adaptable to your own personal needs.
