The Mallorca property market is enjoying considerable growth (see page 26), driven by the demand of well-heeled foreigners dreaming of ‘the good life’ on the island. The search for a home can be a stressful process without the help of a professional real estate agent, with in-depth local knowledge and a good understanding of the buyer’s needs; we present the newest members of the abcMallorca Property Portal online, from page 130.
Once you have your new home, you’ll need to furnish it: there are many new interesting furniture stores, design studios, and service companies all keen to help transform your new property into a comfortable home. We feature newly opened Gallery Red (on page 32) and the entertaining real-life story of an Englishman who suffered sleepless nights in Alcúdia, worrying about reforming an old townhouse. We also feature some amazing public spaces that have everyone talking – and meet their creator, Inca-based interior designer Marga Rotger.
From my own first-hand experience, I can strongly recommend that all my fellow foreigners seeking to construct or renovate on the island hire the services of a ‘aparejador’, or technical architect, who is responsible for making sure your construction project reaches the quality standards you expect and is completed on time and within budget; a dream wouldn’t you say? Find out more on page 54.
The abcMallorca networking events are renowned for being the basis of many successful business collaborations on the island; we present the outcome of one such collaboration on page 72.
