The finest properties in Mallorca / Majorca

Knowledgeable, dedicated, passionate

Amidst all the doom and gloom of the financial and other "bad news" merchants it is high time that the World Press put a more positive "spin" on the actions being taken by the US Government and the European banks re interest rates etc. These measures will obviously not filter through with much effect for some months but nevertheless are positive moves.

However to put in a little perspective consider the following: Regarding the initial "$700 billion bail out" this sum would buy no less than 15,000 Boeing 737s, or 20 million Jaguar X Types!!

The following information is very simply Michael Cunnington's understanding of the matters mentioned and in no way should be taken as an official view - any comments from readers will be welcomed.

Although less relevant in Mallorca than most places in the world, property owners need to be realistic if they wish to sell in the current climate. What was a sensible price three months ago was probably on the strong side already - so today it is probably way over the top. Many owners can afford to "wait it out" until prices are restored to their former glory. But those that are keen to sell should sharpen their pencils.

Looking on the bright side if you are selling in Euros and repatriating the funds to a sterling area - the fall in the pound against the Euro has made a profit for you. Take this into account in your pricing. A property priced at € 1 million was returning GBP 680,000. Today the return will be over GBP 850,000. A cool benefit of GBP 170,000 !!!

Despite the lack of world No 1, Mallorcan Rafael Nadal, the Spanish Davis Cup Team beat Argentina to win the 2008 Davis Cup adding to the many other triumphs this year.

According to Reuters the seaside emirate of Dubai shifted into crisis mode this week as its breakneck building boom stalled, its lending bonanza evaporated and the government ponders wider steps to rescue banks .......Looks like Abu Dhabi will come to the rescue if it can grab all or part of "Emirates" airline.

Despite the economic strife, our recent campaign in the International Press worldwide has generated a huge response with literally hundreds of web hits and more than 900 genuine enquiries - some admittedly for lesser value properties than the superbly finished Son Vida residence - ZEN VIDA.

I am confident that we will sell Zen Vida as a result of the campaign and have several seriously interested clients who will visit or re-visit over the next weeks. We have also experimented with new media other than the traditional Country Life, Sunday Times and similar. Full pages in Bentley magazine, Aston Martin, Centurion, and Boat International have produced high quality but low quantity of results. Google adwords have also produced healthy response.

For further information about this superb property, have a look at the specifically designed website for the villa

Whilst we have received a healthy crop of new listings I think these are more as a result of the strong advertising campaign than an indication of a rush to sell on behalf of owners. Have a look in the section below to see the new offers.

Meanwhile Christmas is almost upon us - think positive - and be healthy! The "wealthy" bit will return!! All of us at MJC Associates wish you a very happy Christmas and a prosperous 2009.
