Is 2023 a Good Time to Buy a Property in Ibiza?

As Ibiza’s property market continues to flourish, we are thrilled to share our latest real estate market update, demonstrating why Ibiza continues to be an excellent investment opportunity.

In recent years, the Ibiza real estate market has experienced a significant influx of new residents and international buyers, particularly in the luxury segment. Consequently, the island is experiencing a sensational rise in interest, a steady increase in prices, a decrease in quality supplies, and an elevation in demand.

So, is 2023 a good time to buy a property in Ibiza? There is no doubt about it! Now is an excellent time to invest. Check out our insights and forecast below for more information.

The General Spanish Real Estate Market in 2022

European and, in particular, Spanish real estate markets enjoyed a favourable year in 2022. As a result, Spain has been noted as one of the most promising countries to invest in property, with the price of real estate increasing by 7.1%, according to a recent report from Sociedad de Tasación. There have also been significant increases in the number of foreign buyers in Spain, with a record 26,728 sold and purchased properties, representing 15.92% of all sales in Spain (Idealista, 2022). In light of Brexit negotiations and economic growth rates, this figure is predicted to increase over the next few years.

The General Balearic Property Market over the Past Decade

The Balearic Islands have demonstrated continuous growth over the past decade (pre-pandemic), reaching its prominent peak in 2017. Sales and price averages remained steady until late 2019, when a mild decline began, indicating that the market was experiencing minor stagnation. Despite a temporary pause in 2020, sales and prices again reached their highest levels since 2007 during mid-2022.

Ibiza’s Luxury Housing Market 2022 with Prestige Properties

Ibiza’s real estate market has always been more resilient than its neighbouring Balearic Islands’ and Spain mainland’s, whereby setbacks or downturns have never been as severe. As our counterparts have seen their markets grow, Ibiza is particularly noteworthy, especially in the luxury sector, for exhibiting an even more significant upturn since 2020. 

Our Prestige Properties Ibiza’s sales data from 2022 calculated:

  • An overall 10% increase in price per square metre between 2020 and 2022 across all areas on the island
  • Our sales volume doubled between 2020 and 2021 – and remained stable throughout 2022
  • An 87% rise in enquiries over the past two years
  • A drop of around 50% in (published) listings (suggesting a high demand versus low supply market)
  • 58% of our buyers purchased a property as a second home

2023 Forecast and is now a Good Time to Buy a Property in Ibiza?

Based on our internal statistics and general market trends across mainland Spain and the Balearic islands, we are confident that Ibiza will remain a top destination for buying property in 2023.

Since the main boom of 2021 (which saw even higher numbers than pre-covid highs in 2017), we remain steady and continue to rise, making it an attractive investment. Since fewer sellers are on the market, the race against a low supply continues, thus guaranteeing a steady increase in property value.

The island generally continues to grow, especially in the hospitality and tourism sectors, and is becoming a premium place to live. As non-resident families become more active in their buyers’ journeys, they opt to rent long-term whilst waiting to see when the right property to buy becomes available.

    Ibiza & Balearic Islands Real Estate Market Report 2022 & Forecast 2023

    This report uses internal and external sources to present information on the property market in Ibiza and the Balearic Islands for 2022, along with its projected forecast for 2023.

    According to the data and figures received, the analysis covers the following three topics of discussion:

    1. The Balearic Islands Housing Market Summary 2022
    2. The Ibiza Luxury Housing Market Report 2022 from Prestige Properties
    3. Prestige Properties Ibiza 2023 Predicted Forecast 

    1) The Balearic Islands Housing Market Summary of 2022

    Taking a glance at the Balearic Islands’ housing market over the past decade, we can see both sales and house prices continue to rise. In 2007, the market suffered a rapid decline due to the financial crisis. Even so, the real estate market has steadily recovered, reaching a peak in 2017, with similar figures appearing in sales throughout 2022. 

    Ibiza & Balearic Islands Real Estate Market Report: Buying & Selling of homes in the Balearics 2007-2022

    Since 2017, there has been a slight drop in sales from late 2018 through to early 2020 (suggesting the market was experiencing minor stagnation); however, it must be noted that during this period, the property market sector, like many others, started to experience less movement due to the uncertainty of COVID-19 that inevitably contributed to the decline in sales. Despite this, since the summer of 2020, buyers’ activity has quickly rebounded and thrived again, with property sales continuing to rise across the Balearic Islands.

    According to the General Council of Notaries and the National Institute of Statistics (INE), the property prices in the Balearic Islands have continued to increase, reaching an impressive peak in Q1, 2022.

    2) The Ibiza Luxury Housing Market Report 2022 from Prestige Properties

    It should be noted that Ibiza’s luxury real estate market has always been more resilient than its neighbouring islands’ and Spain’s mainland, whereby setbacks or downturns have never been as severe.

    Despite the real estate market dip across the Balearic, the pandemic demonstrated a continuous positive shift in Ibiza’s luxury market. For a more detailed analysis relating to the effects of the pandemic on the Ibiza real estate market, check out our end-of-year market reports for 2020 and 2021.

    In fact, since the 2020 pandemic, Prestige Properties’ enquiries, sales, and revenue have almost doubled in numbers.

    Average Price per Square Metre per Municipality in Ibiza

    Our internal statistics from our sales database at Prestige Properties Ibiza calculated an average increase in price per square metre, from 7.281€ to 8.028€, approximately a 10% rise between 2020 and 2022.

    Source: Internal Data Prestige Properties Ibiza 

    In Ibiza’s luxury housing market, most municipalities have shown price increases per square metre between 2020 and 2022.

    Source: Internal Data Prestige Properties Ibiza 

    Eivissa – Average Price & Price per m2 

    Overall, the city remains in high demand and demonstrates a strong market presence. As with most European cities, Eivissa offers something for everyone, and the city has gained popularity in line with the rest of the island. Eivissa has experienced a 1% increase in the price per square metre in the past year. Even though 7.503€/m2 is slightly below the island’s average, the area still accounted for the majority of all our sold properties (of which most were apartments) at 55%.

    Average Property Size: 95 m2

    Average Property Price in Euros: 620.000€

    San José – Average Price & Price per m2 

    San José has always been high in demand among affluent luxury second-home buyers. Over the past few years, San José has been the municipality with the most stable prices, averaging 7.911€/m2. In addition, San José is the municipality with the greatest mix of types of properties sold this year, with Apartments, Fincas, Houses, Modern Villas, and Projects all being sold. Despite a 1% decrease in price per square metre since last year, San José has maintained a steady price per square metre overall.

    Average Property Size: 172 m2 

    Average Property Price in Euros: 1.300.000€

    Santa Eulalia – Average Price & Price per m2 

    In 2022, the average price per square metre in Santa Eulalia was 8.185€. This price is 14% lower than last year (2021: 9.553€/m2) but remains somewhat higher than the current average. However, even with this slight drop, Santa Eulalia has still seen an average of 34% increase in its price per square metre since 2020.

    Average Property Size: 315 m2

    Average Property Price in Euros: 2.600.000€

    San Antonio – Average Price & Price per m2 

    Compared to previous years, San Antonio’s average square metre price has increased from 5.442€ in 2021 to 8.963€ – presenting a 65% increase year-on-year. There are two possible explanations for this. Most of the island’s high-end new builds and off-plan properties are in San Antonio. Although they generally have a small surface area, they still offer prime locations (sea-front, sunset views, etc.), increasing the overall property value and price per square metre of the area. In addition, the Municipality’s average square metre prices are significantly increased also by the sale of large Fincas in the northern parts of San Antonio (Santa Inés, San Mateo, Buscastell, etc.), which are far above the island average.

    To give a more comprehensive view of this interesting development, the average square metre price in San Antonio can be broken down by property type giving a more accurate understanding of the average values: Apartment: 5,150€/m2 – Finca: 13,779€/m2 – House: 9,665€/m2.

    Average Property Size: 225 m2 

    Average Property Price in Euros: 1.800.000€

    San Juan – Average Price & Price per m2 

    San Juan de Labritja in the north of the island has an average price per square metre of 9.167€/m2. This is largely due to sizable plots, usually situated on rustic (protected) land, and the scarcity of sales properties in the north of the island, which contributes to its high square metre price. The price per square metre in San Juan has seen a 5% increase over the past year. 

    Average Property Size: 600 m2 

    Average Property Price in Euros: 3.000.000€

    Average Sales Price of each Property Type in Ibiza

    Besides a properties location, a property’s average price per m2 and its final sales price depends largely on its type (category). Generally, apartments are marginally below the average market sales price, while modern villas, Fincas, and houses tend to exceed average prices.

    Source: Internal Data Prestige Properties Ibiza

    In 2022 Ibiza’s average price of an apartment was around 566.000€, with a range in price from 320.000€ (low-end) to 620.000€ (high-end). While the average price of an authentic Finca in Ibiza was 3.000.000€, the state of a property and its location play a role in its final value. For example, San Juan de Labritja typically hosts a Finca value (around 5.5M) which is much higher than the average due to its natural habitat and surroundings. While Santa Eulalia has a lower typical Finca sales price (1.6M), considering that often the plots are smaller, areas are more urbanised, which means there may be more factors that affect the sales price, such as road noise.

    The average sales price of a modern villa in 2022 was about 4.700.000€. However, those for sale in the municipality of Santa Eulalia were sold at around 6.000.000€, many of which are in fact situated in the most exclusive areas near Ibiza Town, namely in Can Rimbau, Can Pep Simó and Cap Martinet. 

    Average Sales Prices of Properties that are "as new" vs "to renovate"

    As Ibiza is primarily a reseller market, it is beneficial to examine the average sales price of properties that classify "as new" or "to renovate". The average sales price for a large-scale property "as new" sits around 1.840.000€, while properties requiring a renovation are often priced at around 1.000.000€. A difference like this is even more evident in San José, where a property "to renovate" costs about half as much as buying one categorised "as new" (860.000€ vs 1.700.000€). The differences in other municipalities are not very notable, which indicates that investment potential via renovations is highly variable and needs to be reviewed individually.

    Reasons for Buying a Property in Ibiza

    The reasons people choose to purchase a property in Ibiza can be divided into three main categories: first home, second home, and investment. It is noteworthy that first-home buyers purchase a property to serve as their primary residence, whereas second-home buyers will primarily use the property as a vacation home. Buyers who intend to use the property as a holiday rental property to generate a return on investment or who intend to renovate and resell the property have been categorised as investment buyers.

    The luxury property market in Ibiza has become the preferred destination for many international buyers. This has resulted in nearly 58% of our buyers purchasing a property as a second home, over 27% buying a property primarily as an investment, and only 15% of the 2022 property sales were made by first home buyers. 40% of the first home buyers were Spanish nationals, and they generally invested in apartments.

    Source: Internal Data Prestige Properties Ibiza

    International Interest and Percentage of Nationalities Buying in Ibiza

    UK buyers remained the largest group at Prestige Properties in 2022, followed by Italians, French, and Germans. These four nationalities together purchased approximately 60% of the total properties sold in 2022, whilst the Dutch, Spanish, and Swiss buyers comprise the second-largest buyer group (27%).

    Interestingly, in 2022, we received more overseas enquiries than in previous years, resulting in purchases made by residents of the USA and Hong Kong.

    Source: Internal Data Prestige Properties Ibiza

    Popular Ibiza Municipalities by Buyer’s Nationalities

    Spanish and Italian nationals generally invest mainly in Ibiza Town, while German, Belgian, French and Dutch nationals invest mainly in San José. UK buyers tended to spread across the entire island, with numbers being evenly distributed between San Antonio, Ibiza Town, and San José. Most properties sold during 2022 were in San José (38%), followed by Ibiza Town (28%).

    Source: Internal Data Prestige Properties Ibiza

    We can also observe an equal trend towards purchasing apartments (55%) and detached houses (41%, including Fincas and Modern Villas) during 2022, with construction projects accounting for only 4% of the properties sold. However, this is not surprising in light of the limited supply of development projects. In Ibiza, construction permits are difficult to obtain, and a great deal of protected land limits the authorisation of new builds and construction projects available for sale. 

    In contrast to the general trend of buying an apartment in Ibiza, our clients from the UK and Belgium have a clear tendency towards buying a house. 

    Prestige’s Top-Selling Locations of the Year 2022

    Based on the Sales Volume, the top-selling municipality in 2022 was San José, followed by Santa Eulalia and San Antonio. However, if we consider the actual number of properties sold, the order changes to: San José de Sa Talaia (38% of properties sold), Ibiza Town (28% of properties sold), followed by San Antonio (15% of properties sold), Santa Eulalia (15% of properties sold) and San Juan (4% of properties sold).

    Source: Internal Data Prestige Properties Ibiza

    Long-Term Rental Interest: an indicator for potential buyers

    Long-term rentals for larger properties have become increasingly popular, especially with families. People recognise that they can work efficiently from home, focusing on building their businesses and watching their families grow in an idyllic location is a real and achievable attraction and a noticeable change since the pandemic. While there is a high demand, the market in fact lacks long-term rental opportunities and therefore provides good investment possibilities for clients seeking buy-to-let properties in Ibiza. 

    High Demand vs. Low Supply: the trend continues 

    Throughout the past few years, the number of enquiries for properties has been continuously surging, with an 87% rise over the past 2 years. It is clear that demand is increasing, yet fewer properties are being placed on the market. Throughout 2022, Prestige Properties saw a drop of around 50% in (published) listings. As a result of Ibiza’s increasingly restrictive building regulations, the number of newly constructed properties is also declining year after year. In this Prestige portfolio, 182 new properties were listed for sale in total throughout 2022. The lack of supply is one of the main reasons why the Ibiza Real Estate Market remains stable and properties consistently increase in value.

    Conclusion: The Luxury Real Estate Market Ibiza 2022

    The Balearic Islands are not only one of the most popular holiday destinations in Europe, but they are also among the leading real estate markets in Spain, especially Ibiza’s luxury housing market, which continues to grow steadily. From the information and data above, we can see that the international second-home and investment market continues to flourish, with an increasing island-wide interest, particularly in the San José area.

    Home sales, overall prices, and price per square metre in Ibiza are generally higher than in other Balearic Islands or Spanish mainland. According to Idealista’s statistics, the average sales price per square metre in Spain is 1.929€/m2, whereas, in the Balearic Islands, it is around 3.690€/m2, and in Ibiza it is 4.879€/m2. Prices have slightly increased, quality supply dried up and demand has rocketed. International high net worth families continue to establish themselves on the island, diversity is expanding, and the infrastructure is gradually being improved.

    3) Prestige Properties 2023 Predicted Forecast

    According to the house price index (IPV) published by the National Institute of Statistics (INE), the Balearic Islands remained the Spanish region with the highest house prices in the third quarter of 2022. Prices here increased by 8.3% compared to the same quarter last year. The luxury property market in Ibiza is expected to rise steadily and consistently. In general, this speaks to Ibiza’s upscale market, which is likely to continue to be attractive internationally well into 2023. As we leave 2022 behind and have started 2023, we anticipate a minor decline in sales. This is based on a global sentiment of general stagnation, but is also especially true in Ibiza since we are increasingly seeing a shortage of sellers on the market. However, growing in popularity as a trendy and desirable place to live, the island is generally experiencing continuous growth. Amidst Ibiza’s boom in luxury and extravagance, Ibiza’s main challenge will be maintaining its local charm and authenticity.

      Ibiza 2022: The end of a significant year here at Prestige Properties Ibiza

      We at Prestige Properties Ibiza are proud to say that 2022 has been an exceptionally successful year, despite its unexpected hardships. Together as a team, we are stronger than ever and are proud to announce our company milestones and share our accomplishments with you.

      Here is a brief summary of what the past year has brought us, our progress, and the new adventures we plan on taking on in 2023.

      Tribute to Pascale – a truly exceptional woman

      2022 kicked off with a very unexpected loss for Prestige Properties. Sadly, on Friday, April 1st 2022, we said goodbye and celebrated Pascale Dufournier’s life after losing her fight with cancer. We lost a wonderful person who was our beloved company’s very heart and soul. A young woman from Paris, Pascale came to Ibiza in 1976 to follow her dreams. Her passion for design, elegance, and the island she loved led to the creation of Prestige Properties in 1983. 

      The many beautiful qualities that Pascale brought to her life and work will never be forgotten – generosity, a caring way of being, exquisite style and humour, a joyful zest for life, and her love for the island of Ibiza. Throughout the course of her life, she was dedicated to sharing her joy with family, friends, and those of us who were thankful to be a part of her company. As Pascale often said, "Prestige has never been "work" to me; it has been my family." She will be so deeply missed, yet her presence remains with us in our lives and at Prestige. Read our full tribute to the wonderful Pascale here, a truly exceptional woman.

      Social responsibility, community Initiatives and going green campaign Ibiza

      Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is what we at Prestige Properties Ibiza consider a humble way of giving back to Ibiza. As a company and individuals, we are grateful for our home and opportunities, which motivates us to acknowledge our accountability through change.

      Since 2017, we have prioritised green living and charitable giving as part of our company and lifestyle. These actions include:

      1. Reducing Co2 Emissions through Calculation, Reduction & Recycling
      2. Donating a portion of every sale and rental commission to IbizaPreservation
      3. Regular Contributions to Local Charities Focusing on Social Equality
      4. Supporting Local Sports and Youth Clubs via our UD Ibiza Sponsorship and others
      5. Advocating Green Living & Advice for Ibiza Property Owners and Tenants – Guides on sustainable tourism and energy efficiency in homes

      Throughout 2022, we have invested in more hybrid cars, participated in beach clean-ups, and devised home guides for owners and tourists, ensuring energy efficiency and promoting sustainability in Ibiza. We have all the latest news, home guides, collaborations, and achievements on our going green page.

      In an exciting development, we have recently launched our most recent green campaign as part of our commitment to the environment and love for the island. 

      Our recently launched campaign, ‘Campaña Escombro‘, was developed in collaboration with Novaforma construction company to clean up illegal construction dumping on the island. Contributing to solving problems caused by tourism, renovations, and the influx of ongoing construction projects. Here, we encourage everyone, from our clients, collaborators, local businesses and island residents, to actively participate and join forces with us in "Going Green & Giving Back". 

      You can read more here and learn how to get involved, be part of the solution, and make a difference for Ibiza’s optimal habitat. 

      Last but not least, in keeping with our green campaign and to ensure that our clients have the most enjoyable Ibiza experience, we now include the De Angel amenities line of organic hair care and body care in our rental welcome gift pack. De Angel makes natural body cleansing products that are 100% natural and derived from local sources. A little something to make your stay both sustainable and memorable.

      Going green campaign Prestige properties Ibiza

      New team members at Prestige Properties Ibiza

      The island has certainly grown more than expected in general since the pandemic, becoming a much more desirable and trendy place to live, with both the selling of homes and long-term rentals, as well as tourism at an all-time high, especially among families and international buyers. The influx of inquiries was such that Prestige Properties Ibiza had to hire more staff by the summer of 2021 to handle the influx of inquiries. This trend continued directly into 2022 as well. So, with that said, a special warm welcome and thank you to our brand new team members from 2022, Edgar, Gabriel Dufournier, and Carlos.

      Prestige Properties Ibiza team 2022 /2023

          The Ibiza Travel Forecast 2022

          For the first time in almost two years, 2022 is appearing to be the very best year to date for travel. Naturally, travel and tourism still involve advance planning and remaining patient and flexible, but as countries are easing restrictions, and vaccination passports, passenger locator forms, and health testing are becoming the new normal, the vast majority of travellers are finally feeling confident to plan and take their next vacation as normal. 

          Gratefully, there was a lot of unexpected optimism in the tourism industry here in Ibiza over the past two seasons, particularly in the luxury travel sector. Although we all hoped that the optimism would continue, recent "good news" from the media and the nightclub industry have given us every reason to expect the summer of 2022 to be an even better year for Ibiza, attracting tourists from across the globe and bringing things back to how they once were.


          Ibiza Night Clubs are Due to Open for their First Full Season this 2022

          In addition to the nightclubs announcing their opening this year, they have also planned to open two weeks earlier than usual, from the end of April, through until October, or possibly November if all goes well.

          As part of the island’s nightlife season, all major operators are working hard to get ready. With a possible 65% capacity, a valid COVID passport, differentiated zones to ease into things safely, and a few necessary restrictions, the clubs will hopefully be fully operational in early Spring. 

          So far, Amnesia has announced their opening party for 2022 and it has not taken long to revolutionise clubbers around the world, who are already placing their bets on the lineup of the opening. On May 21 Amnesia opens its doors and tickets are already on sale too.

          General COVID-19 Restrictions and Measurements in Ibiza

          Even though we can’t predict what the season ahead holds, Ibiza adapted well both during the summer of 2020 and 2021, maintaining a very positive attitude and safety throughout, where the majority of activities and many social events continued to operate as usual. It is evident from the past two seasons, even during much uncertainty, that tourism and events in 2022 will continue to increase and thrive on the island. 

          We have not only seen an increase in culinary experiences, including the opening of numerous new restaurants, especially in the Santa Eulalia area, but tourists have also taken a deeper interest in a multitude of outdoor activities such as sunset charters, private yachts, and the discovery of the island’s hidden gems! All of which has led to many tourism sectors having reported experiencing their best summer seasons, even when compared to prior to the pandemic. 

          Over the winter period 2021/22 we saw a brief tightening of restrictions, whereby proof of ‘COVID Vaccination Passports’ was required for entering restaurants and attending large-scale events. However, these restrictions eased after 2 weeks as the social Christmas season returned back to normal. Like many European countries, mandatory masks are still required in busy urbanised areas and when attending public places like supermarkets and indoor venues, something that will likely continue and is preferred for the safety of us all. 

          So right now, apart from the above-mentioned mask-wearing, there are NO Covid-related RESTRICTIONS in Ibiza.

          Travel to Ibiza Safely this Season 2022 – Entry Requirements to Enter Spain

          It is very important to stay up-to-date on both the requirements for entering Spain as well as the restrictions that may apply once you arrive in Spain.  

          In light of the fact that the Pandemic is constantly changing, here are a few links and information points to keep in mind.  You can take the majority of the stress out of your travel experience if you have a solid understanding of what to expect before you go and can effectively plan everything that you need. 


          Do I need a  Health Control or Passenger Locator Form to enter Ibiza?

          The safety of tourism is dependent on the health control measures taken. The Balearic Islands require that all visitors entering from other international countries, regardless of their nationality, age, or any other consideration, complete a health check or a passenger locator form. 

          It is important to note that the only travellers to whom this form does not apply to are international passengers in transit at a Spanish airport with a final destination in another country, provided that the transit lasts less than 24 hours and that the passengers do not leave the airport premises. It is imperative that each form is fully completed accurately on an individual basis in order to check-in and fly. Each form can only be associated with one trip at a time.Health Check Forms for all travel into Spain can be found here:


          Do I need a Vaccination Certificate, Diagnostic Test or Recovery Certificate to enter Ibiza?

          All passengers arriving from another country must present one of the following documents in order to enter Spain:

          1. A certificate of Vaccination against COVID-19 

          Valid from 14 days after the complete vaccination schedule (x2) and for up to one year after the date of vaccination.

          1. A negative certification of an active infection diagnostic test

          Required 72h prior to arrival in the Balearic Islands or a rapid antigen test, 48h prior to arrival in the Balearic Islands. Currently, at the point of publishing this type of certificate is NOT accepted in the case of passengers arriving from the United Kingdom (UK).  A full Vaccination certificate is required.

          1. A certificate of recovery after having contracted the disease

          Corresponding to a test within a period not exceeding 180 days after the date of the first positive result of an active infection diagnostic test (NAAT) and no earlier than 11 days following the date of that positive result. Currently, at the point of publishing this type of certificate is NOT accepted in the case of passengers arriving from the United Kingdom (UK).  A full Vaccination certificate is required.

          These certificates (vaccination, diagnostic test, recovery) must be the original, written in either Spanish, English, French, or German, and may be presented in paper or electronic format.
