Life in San José Villages, Ibiza

There are three main villages in the municipality itself: San José, San Agustin, and Es Cubells. 

Boasting unique charm, local community, and a family-friendly atmosphere, San José is one of the most popular villages on the island. The typical Ibicencan town offers a number of convenient amenities, such as vibrant restaurants all year round, supermarkets, souvenir gift shops, boutiques, and fashion stores. 

Secondly, the idyllic village of Sant Agustí boasts endless views of vineyards and the surrounding countryside, making it both an architecturally impressive and peaceful setting. Sant Agustí lies on the border between San Antonio and San José, providing easy access to all the local shops, supermarkets, and restaurants, which is necessary since the village itself hosts only a few stores. Due to the very same reason, Benimussa’s countryside location, with its panorama of outstanding beauty, is highly desirable to those seeking a secluded country atmosphere and a life of authenticity.

Lastly, is Es Cubells – Ibiza’s smallest village. Even though this village crosses over with the client appeal of the south, it still offers a unique traditional culture. The village itself consists only of a white Ibicencan church and two bars nearby. A magical and extraordinary spot dotted with little coves and beaches close by, such as Ses Boques, Cala Llentrisca, Es Torrent, Porroig, and the Cala d’Hort Natural Park with its famous Es Vedra island. 

Buying a Property in San José Villages, Ibiza

San José’s main village attracts property buyers that are typically families with permanent residences or those looking for second homes during the summer. Buyers here are often drawn to the village’s authenticity, which is reflected also in its style of properties.

Clientele looking to buy a property in Sant Augusti (or Benimussa) tend to also be families and younger couples who are often searching for traditional fincas and Mediterranean-style villas with expansive grounds, plenty of outdoor living opportunities, and occasionally the potential to cultivate their own land.

Although a small, traditional village, properties in the village of Es Cubells feature more exclusive-style modern villas with spectacular views of the sea. It is no secret that the Cala d’Hort beach and the surrounding area of Es Cubells have the best views of Es Vedrà, one of the most desired requirements for luxury home buyers, which makes Es Cubells more than just a village lifestyle location.

Life in the South of San José, Ibiza

The most popular area for buyers with money to invest is undoubtedly Ses Salines, Cala Jondal, or as previously mentioned, Es Cubells. These up-market locations all offer easy access to the unspoiled countryside, Ibiza Town, and the island’s most popular beaches, as well as fashionable bars and restaurants frequented by A-list celebrities like Sa Trinxa and El Chiringuito, the famous Blue Marlin Ibiza Beach Club. These southern Ibiza spots are viewed as the finest and most attractive spots for lifestyle vacationers to enjoy an exclusive VIP status.

Buying a Property in the South of San José, Ibiza

In most cases, the properties sought in the south of San José are meant to serve as luxury second homes or as investment rental homes. The vast majority of the exclusive properties in the area of Ses Salines have panoramic views of the sea. Property buyers who are able to find a property here have the distinction of living in a very up-market and affluent area, which is almost unmatched anywhere else in Ibiza. Due to low supply and the nature reserve status protected by law against new builds, properties for sale in this region are in high demand, and acquiring one is very difficult.

Life in the West of San José, Ibiza

Located on the west coast of San José are two popular beach resort areas, Cala Tarida and Cala Conta. Both are well known for their popularity with tourists every season, yet these beautiful spots are immensely visited throughout the entire year by locals in order to enjoy the glorious beaches on offer, full of pure white sand and turquoise waters with breathtaking sunset views. During the peak season, the area is a hive of activity, with a multitude of hotels, restaurants, bars, and tourist attractions, such as the Cotton Beach Club Ibiza, Sunset Ashram Beach Bar, and the ecological chiringuito, Cala Escondida.

Buying a Property in the West of San José, Ibiza

For those interested in buying a property here for tourism rentals or a second vacation home in Ibiza, the west is one of the best choices. This family-friendly area offers a variety of renovated and modernised villas and apartments with stunning views of the landscape, the sea, and some of the best sunsets on the island.

    Why is Ibiza a great place to buy a property for investment?

    In general, buying property has always been a reliable investment. Of course, it does involve numerous factors and variables. But, one thing is for sure, you’ll certainly have a better chance of getting a decent return if you buy a property in a location that’s highly valuable and sought-after.

    Ibiza has been a safe choice for property investment for quite some time now, mostly because of its idyllic location and its ongoing high demand for properties. Whether you are looking to buy a second home, a villa for tourism rental purposes, or you are interested in your own renovation or an early project phase property – as the current market stands, purchasing a home in Ibiza will make for a secure future return of investment.

    Read on to find out why we are optimistic about the real estate property market in Ibiza, and what investment opportunities are available here.

    Why invest in a property in Ibiza – the general property market

    Over the past decade, both sales and house prices have shown continual and stable growth across the Balearic Islands. It was not until late 2019 and into early 2020 that house prices and sales started to fall for the very first time since the start of the financial crisis in 2007. This suggested the beginning of a minor stagnation that later increased due to the circumstances of COVID-19.

    buying a property Balearic Island Price curve

    However, from early 2020 through to the end of 2021 we saw buyer activity quickly thrive again, with property sales continuing to rise across the whole of the Balearics. It was more than evident in Ibiza, as you can see from our end-of-year property market report 2021 that a surge of numbers and growth in the second-home international real estate market was occurring. People’s priorities were changing due to COVID-19, and living among beauty and nature, away from the big cities became increasingly more appealing. The high-end property market in Ibiza continues to be a magnet for second-home buyers. After the initial sales spike of 2021, things have marginally slowed down as the post-pandemic effect has worn off, but the fact remains that demand for properties still continues to far exceed the number of sellers on the market, thus resulting in a strong and unwavering price curve.

    Casa Sunny Vadella

    Buying a Property in Ibiza with a Touristic Rental License

    In Ibiza, there are many people who wish to buy a villa to rent out for tourism purposes. Despite this, it is not as simple as many would believe. Not every property in Ibiza can legally be rented out to tourists for short-term holidays. Those who wish to proceed with renting their property will need a final tourist license. And, any application for a tourist license must satisfy a strong set of requirements. For more information on obtaining a rental license in Ibiza including the current legal requirements and the application process, see the article on Tourist Rentals in 2021 by Ibicasa.

    Finding a property to buy in Ibiza with a current tourist license is more than ideal. You will already have all the application processes complete and the legal certificate in place, and, what’s more, there are likely to be existing regular tourism customers who are ready to come back to this same property and book their holidays year after year. This is alongside the possibility of already having a professional property agent and management team in place who are doing a great job.

    If you’re keen to find a great property with a rental license then check out this tastefully renovated and upgraded 4-bedroom house, located in a very peaceful and secluded area. Casa Sunny Vadella is perfectly located within walking distance of the local beach, Cala Vadella – which is known for its child-friendly atmosphere and a wide range of pleasant beach restaurants. This property has already been certified with a final rental license which makes it a top investment.

    Alternatively, Penthouse Olea Cala Llonga is another great tourist license property that offers an attractive investment opportunity in Ibiza. Within steps of the beautiful beach and local resort of Cala Llonga, this penthouse apartment is the most sought-after property within the apartment complex due to its large and spacious floor plan and ideal orientation within the complex. It’s the only apartment with three terraces, two on the main floor and one on the rooftop. This property comes fully furnished and with a management company that looks after the rentals and regular bookings. An excellent investment opportunity.

    Cas Figueroa

    Buying an authentic property in Ibiza for a renovation project

    It is becoming more and more difficult to find older, authentic properties now in Ibiza that can be renovated and re-sold with good returns on investment. A few years back, this was a great option with many more properties readily available. Now, it is becoming harder to find this type of property with the potential to create a modern boutique-style home and gain a decent return. But, of course, it is still possible if you employ the support and expertise of a good estate agent who knows the market well and can advise the right construction teams to employ for such projects.

    Cas Figueroa is an outstanding traditional Ibizan Finca with two guest apartments.  The perfect property investment opportunity for a renovation that has the potential to a beautiful modern-authentic style home. Located between San Rafael and Ibiza Town, surrounded by beautiful countryside, with a 60 m2 pool, this quaint setting is a wonderful opportunity for a renovation property project.

    Casa con proyecto Portinatx

    Buying a Property in Ibiza during ‘off-plan’ or during the ‘project phase’

    There is also the option of purchasing a property off-plan or when the project is still in the development phase, where you then would continue to build the home yourself. If you have time, patience, and passion on your side, there is a good chance that you can save quite a bit of money too, making for a great investment opportunity. Further, this kind of property can also be resold with a bit of a profit margin, or leased on a long-term basis, excluding short-term holiday rentals. As we previously mentioned, obtaining a tourism license encounters a strong set of requirements, and new build properties must wait 5 years before they can apply for tourist rental licenses, and it can still prove challenging even after that.

    Casa Con Proyecto Portinatx is a two-house property with a project license, located in Portinatx, at the northern point of the island, on the second line of the beach. Located on a plot of 1.000m2 with a permit approved in January 2020, the property can be expanded and modified to a total of 399 m2. The project takes into account all the conveniences of modern living and places a living room, kitchen, pantry, and laundry on the ground level. There is also a basement and a garage. There is space outside to build a swimming pool and chill-out area, so all in all, this is a great investment opportunity for anyone looking to start their own building project.

    Buying a property in Ibiza for investment

    Ibiza in general is a very good market to invest in, being stable and safe, especially for long-term investment and ongoing increase in property value. There are often some really great investment opportunities here. But as the demand is almost always higher than the supply if the perfect investment property is not already on the market, then actively registering yourself with the right agent as early as possible comes highly recommended. This way, as soon as the right investment opportunity property becomes available that is suited to your personal requirements, you’re ready to get the process started as soon as possible.

Of course, there are also plenty of cushioned sun loungers, a relaxing hammock, and a large comfortable sofa chill-out zone, perfect for events. Similarly, the outdoor dining area boasts a solid wood-oak banquet table fully covered by a terrace canopy for all those wonderful outdoor dining occasions.

        If you are considering buying a property in Ibiza, and you are looking for a local, modern, yet family-friendly atmosphere near some of the best beaches in the east, then Santa Eulalia del Río might be the perfect location for you.

        Santa Eulalia’s diverse property market offers plenty of attractive purchasing possibilities for families, couples, first-time buyers, and high-profile clients seeking more exclusive second-home investment opportunities.

With its enchanting attractions, breathtaking scenery, pristine beaches, agricultural land, quaint villages, and a stunning Marina Port, why not see if Santa Eulalia is the right place for you to buy a property in Ibiza this 2022?

        Santa Eulalia del Río Promenade

        Life in Santa Eulalia del Río Town Centre

        The town of Santa Eulalia del Río offers one beautiful relaxing strip of golden sand and turquoise waters perfectly complemented by a range of contemporary bars and great restaurants, as well as a buzzing seafront promenade, and an abundance of yachts and sailboats from its Marina Port.

        The town itself has seen an up-market makeover since 2019 which is quickly competing against its more affluent counterparts, such as Talamanca, Ibiza Town, and Marina Botafoch. New and exciting places have arrived, boosting a casual cosmopolitan lifestyle for both locals and tourists. You’ll find a variety of trending places here, including restaurants like the VE-Cafe, and the award-winning coffee shop Meke Cafe Spanish Specialty Coffee Roasters. Recent new outlets to hit the scene since late 2021 include Pepita, Higo, and WOM (Word of Mouth – Radio Cafe) which are among the most appealing latest additions with their great atmosphere, global cuisine menus and regular socialites. Furthermore, the new W Hotel and Aguas de Ibiza continue to provide the town with a 5-star luxury experience over the summer, strengthening the area’s high-end expectations and attracting affluent tourism.

        From retail to food, yoga and pilates studios, watersport and boating activities, and those old-time favourite authentic local spots, Santa Eulalia Town really has it all.

        Buying a Property in Santa Eulalia del Río, Ibiza

        Buying a property in Santa Eulalia del Río Town can offer anything from traditional whitewashed architectural homes to modern villas and some of the most sought-after newly built apartments on the island. The mountain of Siesta may also be of interest with hillside properties overlooking the town, Marina Port and the turquoise Balearic Sea at particularly attractive prices, for those seeking properties with spectacular sea views.

        Life in Santa Eulalia Villages: San Carlos, Santa Gertrudis & Jesús, Ibiza

        For a little less hustle and bustle, Santa Eulalia also has three charming villages to choose from, each with its very own unique stamp and character. San Carlos, the closest to Santa Eulalia’s main town is known for its cultural heritage and community spirit. Once an important meeting place and residence for hippies during the 60s and 70s, this wonderful village is now a picturesque place offering a vibrant local community and iconic spots such as Bar Anita and the island’s biggest hippie market, Las Dalias. The village is surrounded by outstanding countryside, offering residents and visitors a more peaceful and authentic way of life.

        Next, the picture-perfect and charming Santa Gertrudis is the second closest village to Santa Eulalia’s main town. This architecturally perfected village features a newly remodelled main square and a white and yellow central church which coordinates excellently with the houses and apartments that surround it. The village is home to a mix of modern cafes, pizzerias, fine dining restaurants, boutiques, and art galleries, as well as being incredibly convenient for those wishing to access both the public and private schools, including the renowned Morna International College.

        Lastly, Jesús, a small yet extremely cosmopolitan village situated slightly farther afield, is known for its easy access to Ibiza Town as well as its proximity to summer hotspots like Destino, Marina Botafoch, and Pacha. All year long, Jesús is filled with life and atmosphere especially on the weekends due to its popularity with local residents, booming coffee culture and weekly artisan farmers’ market. The area is also incredibly popular among tourists during the height of the season due to its renowned high-class gastronomic and nightlife opportunities including Sa Punta, Patchwork, Ginger, and Chambao at the luxurious Nobu Ibiza Bay Hotel

        Buying a Property in Santa Eulalia Villages

        Homes for sale in San Carlos, Santa Gertrudis and Jesús offer a wide range of styles and locations. In Jesús, there are several exclusive cliff-top properties. These properties can often be found within three of five private communities of Santa Eularia des Riu, which include Cap Martinet, Can Rimbau and Can Pep Simo. However, due to the location and high-end tourist appeal, buying a property in Jesús comes with a very high price tag compared to the rest of the municipality.

        On the other hand, the villages of San Carlos and Santa Gertrudis predominantly present different styles of property, which are commonly sought after by families looking for country lifestyle homes in idyllic settings including renovation projects or remodelled fincas, farmhouses, and modernised authentic villas.

        Life in Santa Eulalia Beach Resorts, Ibiza

        In addition to the 300m-long white sandy beach of Santa Eulalia Town, beautiful nearby beaches and charming resorts can also be found along the coastline, including Cala Pada, Playa Niu Blau, Cala Martina, Es Cana, Cala Nova, Cala Llenya, Cala Mastella, Cala Boix, Pou des Lleó, Es Figueral, Aguas Blancas in the north and Cala Llonga, Cala Olivera and Cala Bonita towards the South. Here there is a sense of peace and tranquillity in these smaller residential locations, accompanied by an intimate local community during the winter and a vibrant atmosphere and excitement during the summer.

        Though these areas are particularly reserved in the off-season, they have a completely different appeal during the summer with venues such as the Bless Hotel, a variety of luxurious beach clubs like Babylon Beach, Aiyanna Beach Club, Atzaro Beach Restaurant, and Chiringuito, and the VIP Amante Ibiza Beach Club in Cala Llonga, creating a very desirable area for many tourists visiting the island.

          Is 2022 a Good Time to Buy a Property in Ibiza?

          The Ibiza housing market significantly boomed during the Coronavirus pandemic, mainly due to a surge of interest from international buyers that were not economically or geographically restricted, and thus saw an opportunity to move away from the big cities and relocate somewhere quieter and more natural. This buyer interest inevitably created a high demand for properties on an island with a small supply.

          In fact, this demand which began in the summer of 2020 and continued into the start of 2022, made Ibiza’s property prices reach a record high and the real estate sector experienced one of the most optimistic years in over a decade. This not only brought joy to sellers and the real estate industry in general, but also created a range of long-term investment opportunities for buyers.

          So, is this boom anticipated to continue, is now still a good time to buy, and what are the 2022 predictions for Ibiza’s real estate?


          What has the General Balearic Property Market looked like over the Past Decade?

          If we rewind back, we can see from our recent article on the 2021 Annual Ibiza Property Market Report and 2022 Forecast that over the past decade (pre-pandemic), the Balearic Islands have shown continuous growth with sales and prices reaching a peak in 2017. These sales and price averages remained the norm, and it was not until late 2019 that these statistics mildly began to drop, suggesting that the market was experiencing minor stagnation. Naturally, it did not help that the real estate business around the same time started to experience less activity due to COVID-19’s uncertain status and subsequent global lockdowns.

          This stagnation, however, must be noted as a reflection of the Balearic Islands as a whole, and when comparing the overall market to the Ibiza luxury property market, the impact was most certainly less significant.

          Yet, despite a temporary pause in buying activity, the interest has since quickly recovered and now regained the highest pricing since 2007.

          What has the General Balearic Property Market looked like over the Past Decade?
          evolucion del precio de la vivienda en islas baleares

          What did Ibiza’s Luxury Housing Market 2021 with Prestige Properties Look Like?

          Using Prestige Properties Ibiza’s sales data, we calculated:

          • An overall 21% increase in price per square metre between 2019 and 2021 across all areas on the island
          • Up until October 2021, sales numbers have risen by 56% compared to 2019 and turnover has risen by 95% in Euros
          • The number of active enquiries and website visits increased by an overall 36%

          For the Full Market Report and Statistics, please visit our 2021 Annual Ibiza Property Market Report and 2022 Forecast

          2022 Forecast and is now a Good Time to Buy a Property in Ibiza?

          Our statistics show Ibiza’s market potential, which not only survived but flourished during the pandemic, giving us confidence that the island will remain a top destination on an international scale for the foreseeable future 2022. House prices in Ibiza’s luxury property market are expected to keep rising steadily, making for an attractive investment. Despite this, we don’t think sales will continue to increase as they have in 2021. With the post-pandemic effect fading, we expect the sales boom of 2021 to slow down, especially as we are increasingly seeing fewer sellers as we move into a new year.  This continues the race against supply and demand, thus promising us a steady increase in property value.

          As we move into 2022 and the island is exhibiting even more growth in general, especially in the hospitality and tourism sector, and is becoming a more desirable and trendy place to live, we are starting to see families hitting the long-term rental market in order to be close by and proactive in their buyers’ journey, even if that means waiting for the right property to come onto the market.

          If you’re interested in viewing our Prestige Properties Annual 2021 Report or you would like to speak with an agent about the current market and investment opportunities then contact us today! We would be more than happy to talk you through Ibiza’s Real Estate potential.

            Sustainable Ibiza – The Best Practice & Guide for Tourists & Visitors

            We impact our environment every single day with the choices we make, from the food we choose to eat to the cars we choose to drive. Thankfully, many of us here in Ibiza and across the globe understand that we must work together and live intentionally in order to protect and preserve our island (and the planet).

            IbizaPreservation acts to ensure the protection and sustainability of Ibiza and Formentera through various NGO’s such as Plastic Free Ibiza, Ibiza Produce, Ibiza Posidonia, the Marine Forum, and Ibiza Sustainability Observatory. As proud contributors and supporters of the fund, we aim to help reduce carbon emissions and tackle some of our local environmental issues alongside them.

            Yet, even as tourists and visitors, you can also make small yet effective changes to lessen your environmental impact during your stay by limiting your energy consumption, using eco-friendly products, and taking deliberate steps to be environmentally friendly. 

            So, let’s get started with our latest guide to the best practices for eco-conscious tourists and visitors.

            Energy Efficiency in Ibiza

            Be mindful of your Water Consumption

            Using water efficiently can help lower your environmental impact. Even while washing dishes or brushing your teeth, simply turning off the tap can actually save over a litre of water within a 20-seconds timeframe alone. Given how much we complete such daily tasks, wasted water can add up very quickly. The same goes for requiring many showers during the hot weather and beach season. Be mindful and do your best to save water where you can.

            Check out the 5 golden rules to save water in Ibiza here:


            Minimise your Electricity in your Ibiza Villa

            Make sure you do not leave your electronics on all day long. Electrical appliances should be turned off when not in use, and only turned on when necessary. For example, avoiding plugging in your mobile phone overnight can save a considerable amount of energy as charging only takes a few hours. Also, consider using high-energy appliances at night, such as dishwashers and washers, and always use the natural heat and light to dry laundry outside, rather than using a dryer.

            Be sure to maintain a comfortable temperature and airflow in your home by utilising your surrounding natural resources. Use the shades and open windows to keep your villa cool during the warmer months rather than racking up energy via air-con appliances. However, when the air-cons are in use, don’t leave the windows open. Where possible, turn off the lights and use natural light instead.


            Recycling and Refuse in Ibiza

            In accordance with IbizaPreservation, the following points are to be considered in relation to waste and recycling when visiting:

            • Before buying, think twice – buy only what you really need.
            • Avoid excessively packaged items
            • Refuse plastic bags – bring your own bag or basket to the grocery store (ask your Prestige agent for one of our cotton "Prestige Going Green" reusable bags!)
            • Refuse throwaway plastics – choose reusable products
            • Refuse plastic straws

            Caring for the Environment & Nature in Ibiza 

            Our island depends heavily on tourism and visitors for its economic well-being. Nevertheless, every year in Ibiza, we are inundated with both luxury and leisurely activities that contribute to pollution and make it difficult to conserve and sustain our ecosystem. You can make a difference in many ways with these simple tips.

            It’s important not to throw cigarette ends in the street or in nature, especially in our forests and woodland nature trails. Without even considering the risk of forest fires, our beaches, and natural surroundings should be respected. Although designated bins may be hard to find outside of urbanised areas, every tobacco store sells heat-proof ashtray wallets. These can be used to store cigarette waste which can then be disposed of properly alongside the rest of the day’s waste. 

            Don’t take souvenirs from our Posidonia and marine life, e.g. when sailing or visiting a beach, leave stones, shells, plants, and animals as they are in their natural habitat. Select an eco-friendly sunscreen that will protect your skin while not damaging marine life, collect your waste after you visit, don’t throw anything in the sea, and moor your boat in the right spot: Anchoring in Posidonia meadows is prohibited. Furthermore, jet-skiing and other high-pollution activities can also be avoided.

            Try walking or biking to your destination rather than driving if it’s close enough – it’s healthier and better for the environment. Another way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is by taking public transportation or if you must drive, maximise every person per car to ensure less transport is on the road. Land-based activities that produce high levels of pollution should also be considered minimally, like safari tours and quad biking.


            Select Conscious & Local Businesses in Ibiza 

            Try and shop for products and services from local businesses and those who advocate for sustainability, eco-friendly products, fair trade, or have Corporate Social Responsibility as part of their business ethos. Even those businesses that make sure their employees have the right contracts and protections – such as insurance – as well as pay taxes are helping the Ibizan community and the environment. 

            Go to this google maps to see all the eco-shops available on the island.

            Every action we take will make a difference. The most important thing to remember is that our actions will result in a cleaner, greener island, both now as well as in the future.

              Energy Efficient Ibiza Homes – A Guide for Home Owners in Ibiza Part. 2

              Improving the energy efficiency of our homes is essential for conserving resources, saving money, and helping the environment. Each of us has a crucial part to play as homeowners, to improve our homes’ energy performance and ultimately reduce our carbon footprint and waste. If we make simple changes, we can achieve better property energy efficiency and contribute greatly to our planet’s future well-being (and our household utility bills).

              Our company, Prestige Properties is fully committed to promoting energy efficiency here in Ibiza as a firm supporter of green living. Previously, we published an "Energy Efficient Homes: A Guide for Homeowners in Ibiza" article, aimed at encouraging property owners and buyers to create energy-efficient homes, which we have now extended into part 2 – "Energy Efficient Homes: A Guide for Home Owners Part. 2"

              So, let’s get started with our latest guide for those who want to get involved in green and sustainable living right from the comfort of their own homes. 

              Energy Efficient Homes - A Guide for Home Owners in Ibiza Part 2

              How to Save Energy at Home – Our Top Daily Tip for Your Ibiza Property

              1. Change to LED Light Bulbs

              In comparison to incandescent, halogen, and compact fluorescent light bulbs, LED bulbs offer significant energy savings. In fact, LED light bulbs use up to 80 percent less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs. So, by making the transition to LEDs, you will significantly reduce your carbon footprint and CO2 emissions.

              1. Wash Your Clothes in Cold Water

              Although washing clothes in hot water is an effective way to get dirty items extra-clean, it is not cheap and of course, has harmful effects on the environment. 

              Where possible, wash your clothes in cold water (unless they are heavily soiled garments). Generating hot water for washing increases energy consumption by up to 90%, therefore, by switching to cold water each household has the potential to save a significant amount of energy on a regular basis. What’s more, cool water also slows the fading of colors and shrinking of fabrics, helping your clothes last longer! 

              1. Air Seal Your Ibiza Home

              Something we covered in our last article – A Guide for Home Owners in Ibiza, but equally important advice to revisit.  Sealing cracks, gaps, and leaks, and adding insulation can save up to 10% on home heating and cooling costs.  Property factors such as roofing, solid walls, ventilation, thermal bridges, water tightness, damp-proofing, and sealing should always be monitored, reviewed, and renewed where possible. If your home has single-paned windows, think about replacing them with more energy-efficient ones.

              1. Clean or Replace All Filters 

              Dirty or clogged filters make systems like air conditioners and dryers work harder and longer than necessary.  It is possible to reduce energy consumption by up to 15% with regular cleaning and maintenance that will ensure steady performance and appropriate use of energy. 

              1. Care for Your Refrigerator and Freezer 

              As a general rule, refrigerators and freezers operate most efficiently when they are full, so keep all those shelves in use. However, you should not overfill them, since overfilling will restrict airflow and force the device to work harder.  Remember to avoid excessive cooling and energy waste by following the manufacturer’s temperature regulation recommendations and be sure to clean your appliances before ice builds up to ensure they are all running efficiently.

              1. Use Natural Resources for Light, Shade, Heating, and Cooling

              Utilise your surrounding natural resources to maintain a comfortable temperature in your home and eliminate the need for energy-consuming appliances. During the cooler months, open up the shades and let the sunshine enter to warm your home, or use the shades or tinted window panes to do just the opposite.  And, where it is possible to use the natural light, turn off the lights.  Typically, household lighting accounts for 12 percent of a household’s total energy usage.

              1. Be Mindful of Electronics & Appliances in your Ibiza Villa

              Make sure you do not leave your electronics on all day long. It is always recommended to turn off your computer, TV monitor, radio and electrical appliances when they are not in use, and only put them on when you really need them. Also, try to avoid plugging in your mobile phone to charge overnight, it only takes a few hours to charge. 

              Bake without peeking! Your oven has to use more energy when the temperature drops every time you peek. If you have time, turn off the oven before the cooking time is up, the heat already generated will be enough to finish the cooking process without using extra energy. 

              When possible, use high-energy appliances such as dishwashers, washers, and dryers at night. It is common for utility providers to offer lower energy costs during certain times of the day, and certainly overnight. Making plans to do your laundry overnight will not only help you save money on your energy bills, but you will also be doing the planet a big favor. Finally, air-dry when possible, hang laundry outside or on a drying rack and avoid using the dryer altogether. Household sustainability and energy efficiency can be improved with small yet effective measures.

              1. Be Intentional with Your Ibiza Property Thermostat 

              If you set your thermostat just a few degrees higher or lower, depending on the season, you will be able to save about 6% to 8% on your energy bill per degree. Your home will not be noticeably cooled or heated any faster by setting your thermostat at a lower or higher temperature than is necessary. It is highly recommended to install a programmable thermostat for your home that will automatically adjust the temperature according to the schedule you set up.  

              1. Recycle, Reuse and Reduce in Ibiza 

              For the year 2019, Ibiza generated an average of 662kg of waste per person. The statistics exceeded the national average by 36.4%. Naturally, Ibiza’s landfill is unable to keep up with this large volume of waste which is why we must be intentional and proactive with our activity of daily living and promote waste reduction.  

              European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR) - Prestige Properties beach clean up 2021

              According to IbizaPreservation, offers the following list of points to keep in mind act upon:

              • Before buying, think twice – buy only what you really need.
              • Avoid excessively packaged items
              • Refuse plastic bags – bring your own bag or basket to the grocery store.
              • Refuse throwaway plastics – choose reusable products.
              • Refuse plastic straws.
              • Take advantage of organic waste to compost.
              • Use the recycling points on the island – yellow, green, and blue bins.
              • Donate the things you no longer use, or sell them at a flea market or auction & buy second-hand items where possible.

              Ibiza also has a good network of selective waste collection points with three main containers:

              • Yellow is for "packaging" where you can deposit different types of containers: plastic, aluminum, metal, and Tetra Brik type containers (milk, soup, juice, sugar boxes).
              • The green container is for glass.
              • Blue is intended for "cardboard packaging", where you can deposit cardboard boxes and paper. 

              Every contribution is valuable to the whole and all of our actions will make a difference. In the end, the most important thing to remember is that living or staying in an energy-efficient home always creates a cleaner, greener island for both now and in the future.

                How to find the Best Real Estate Agency in Ibiza

                You can expect a great experience when buying or selling a home in Ibiza if you work with a real estate agency who knows and understands the market. A reputable and experienced agency is more likely to sell or find your property quickly and efficiently, at the best possible price. But with so many real estate agents available on the island it’s hard to know who to trust. Finding the perfect match may prove more difficult than you expect.

                So, to help with the real estate selection process: here is some useful advice and professional tips on choosing the very best Real Estate Agency in Ibiza.

                Choosing the Right Real Estate Agency in Ibiza

                To begin, you might want to speak to those around you who have recently worked with an Ibiza real estate agency and ask them for recommendations. Finding the right real estate agent is a very personal process and a referral is often an incredibly valuable resource. However, if you are completely new to Ibiza then these may be hard to come by. Either way, we advise any client who is planning to buy or sell a property in Ibiza (with or without recommendations) to follow the advice outlined below to ensure they are working with a trusted realtor.

                Find a Reliable and Professional Real Estate Agent in Ibiza

                Select an agent who is reliable in every sense of the word. Too many real estate agents in Ibiza are working virtually as "one-man bands" without an official, physical office that they can show to the public. You should always be able to visit a reliable real estate agency in person and find out what they’re doing and how they operate.

                Just as an expert in any industry would have education, credentials, professional body certifications, and insurance, real estate should be no different. Look out for agencies that are well-trained and registered to a professional body in Ibiza like PIMEEF and APIBIZA. 

                Experience and professionalism are unmatched advantages when buying or selling a home. Expert agents can help you find the perfect property in your price range, discuss neighbourhood demographics, introduce you to local schools and places of interest, as well as provide accurate valuations for sales, and always negotiate the best price and terms. In other words, a good agent will remain in a client’s corner throughout the entire process and will leave no stone unturned. Even if an individual agent is new to real estate, the experience, and support of the company he or she belongs to is crucial.

                Well-Connected Real Estate Agents in Ibiza

                In Ibiza, great estate agents will be well connected: demonstrating a good portfolio of direct listings and shared listings with partners of integrity. They will be able to provide a full range of services to clients in collaboration with property managers, builders, architects, lawyers, notaries, and gestorias, all in a variety of languages. They will also have access to the entire Ibiza property market, enabling them to offer clients the most suitable home, even if it is listed by another agency.

                Should you list your property with various agencies or just one? Both options have positives and negatives; for a more detailed analysis read our article on "Why sign an exclusive mandate with Prestige".


                Ibiza Property Agents With the Best Marketing Efficiency and Online Presence 

                It is always essential to go online and search for ‘real estate agencies in Ibiza’. What are the first results you see? How is your potential agency position on Google? Do they appear on the first page?

                The real estate agency that excels in its marketing and online presence will always appear at the top of your Google search results. Additionally, they will have a user-friendly website with a wide range of well-presented properties. Ensure that the property descriptions are well written and there is consistent professional photography, videos, virtual 3D tours, and notes on special features and unique selling points throughout.

                How about their offline marketing? Real estate agents with authority in their industry have regularly printed publicity through billboard advertising, company cars, public relations, and magazines. Finding out your chosen agency’s online presence, presentation and marketing strategy is a clear way to determine its strength in the real estate sector, especially when it comes to selling your home.

                While investigating an agent’s online presence, it’s also a good idea to take a look at their client experiences, which can usually be found on their Facebook or Google Reviews pages.

                Transparency in the Ibiza Property Market

                You should always hire a real estate agent who is upfront, honest and transparent. Don’t be shy to ask questions or ask for all the information you need. Make sure all the fees, costs and general agreements are clearly stated and acceptable to you. It is extremely important that you always feel comfortable during the entire process, that you are properly informed, and you are able to ask every single question you have (regardless of how big or small they may seem). If you ever feel you are being pushed to make any type of a decision, or someone is withholding information, then don’t be afraid to move on. Invest time in finding someone you respect and trust.

                Choose an Ibiza Agent who is Right for You Personally 

                The process of buying and selling a home is considerably less stressful if you work with a professional real estate agency that has the necessary skills, knowledge and infrastructure. Once you’ve narrowed your options down to a handful, contact them and ideally make an appointment at their physical offices to get a real feel for their market placement, work-ethic, and to see if you connect with them on a more personal level too. 

                We hope our article, "15 Great reasons to sell your property with Prestige Properties" will give you confidence that there are estate agents in Ibiza that are every bit as reliable, trustworthy, and efficient as we have described above.
