The director of the study, Marco Wölfle, says that “the market for holiday properties in Mallorca is extremely solid". "Prices depend a great deal on sea views and swimming pools, which, among other things, explain why the cheapest houses are in the centre of the island (3,668 euros)."

The increase in price is set to continue over the coming years, according to the report, although not by the same degree. The expectation is that there will be fewer developments, Timo Weibel of Porta Mallorquina observing that these will be "superior and luxury" category.

Germany is the largest market for these holiday homes, the study also noting that there is interest in properties that are licensed for holiday rental. Up to thirteen per cent more is paid for these than for others.
