The finest properties in Mallorca / Majorca

Knowledgeable, dedicated, passionate

Welcome to our August Newsletter - lots going on in Mallorca throughout a super summer. With August drawing to a close, and with temperatures in the high 30's all month, we are looking forward to the occasional shower and perhaps a cooling breeze!

The comments written here are 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.

Sales of real estate continue at a steady pace indicating that prices have levelled out and will probably begin their steady climb as is usual here in Mallorca. So if you are considering buying - you should visit us soon. For UK buyers the unknown factor is still the exchange rate but there has not been much change over the last four months. The answer is - find the property and then we will see how we can help you buy it!.

At risk of repetition - it is still the higher end of the market which is attracting buyers although there has also been a small increase in mid range properties - a two bedroom Anchorage apartment has just been sold at the asking price - and several apartments and medium priced villas have also been sold.

I am often asked "when is the best time to sell?" and I have given up trying to answer this - there appears to be no rhyme or reason to this question although in theory Springtime and early Autumn are reputedly the best times.

Well not really - but if you follow Farrah Fawcett Major's philosophy - "Sometimes I wonder if men and women really suit each other. Perhaps they should live next door and just visit now and then. " then this pair of fincas in Calvia could be ideal ! See below.

Andratx Town

Not our usual type of property but this delightful and cozy house near the church is really something special. See below for further details.

Bill Gates recently gave a speech at a High School about 11 things they did not and will not learn in school. He talks about how feel-good, politically correct teachings created a generation of kids with no concept of reality and how this concept set them up for failure in the real world.

Rule 1: Life is not fair - get used to it!
Rule 2: The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something before you feel good about yourself.
Rule 3: You will not make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You won't be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.
Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.
Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: they called it opportunity.
Rule 6: If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them.
Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent's generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.
Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life has not. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they'll give you as many times as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to anything in real life.
Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you find yourself. Do that on your own time.
Rule 10: Television is not real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.
Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one...
