Purchasing an apartment on Mallorca: the real estate agent Minkner & Partner has the most extensive selection of apartments on Mallorca
Mallorca is popular as never before. Palma’s Son Sant Joan Airport is always reporting new record breaking figures. Of course, this is also due to the turbulent times in other destinations around the Mediterranean, but also because of the fact that Mallorca gains more admirers year on year. Anyone who has ever been here will return, and the dream of finding a property on Mallorca to spend the holidays or longer periods, increases. Most people start with the purchase of an apartment in Mallorca: this is an investment that is, economically speaking, manageable. The investment made and use of the property are in reasonable proportion and it allows the purchaser to experience life on Mallorca and assess whether or not it is worth investing in a villa or a country house. Moreover, an apartment is easy to maintain: work in the garden and the community pool is done by the property management, so the owner does not have to worry about such things if not on site.
Depending on the location and number of floors of an apartment, there are different types of residences: The most common is the normal apartment located on a first floor or higher in an apartment building, which usually has one or more neighbours on the same level. Ground floor homes are popular – especially for owners with children – because they usually have a private garden area and they can walk to the communal garden and swimming pool without having to go through the stairwell. The counterpart is the “ático” apartment, the top unit in an apartment building, which has the advantage of having no neighbours – and disturbances from them – above it. The highlight of a multi-family house is the penthouse, the top apartment of a multi-family house. The penthouse is often characterised by the fact that it takes up the entire floor and has very generous terrace areas directly in front of the living area. Duplex apartments (over two living levels) and triplex apartments (over three living levels) are also popular, but mostly with younger and childless families who also use these flats for personal fitness.

Purchasing penthouses on Mallorca – life at the highest level
A penthouse (often referred to as an ático), is the crowning glory of any Mediterranean residential complex or building and the purchase of such a property is highly esteemed. A penthouse in Mallorca offers quality of life “at the highest level”. The reasons are obvious: guaranteed privacy – very often the lift goes directly from the underground car park to the apartment. The terraces, or even the roof terrace, are usually larger than apartments on lower floors. There are no neighbours above, just the blue sky. And of course, there’s usually a fantastic panoramic view – which in most cases is the sea. Due to the fact that Minkner & Partner specialises in the sale of luxury real estate, the company also has a large selection of penthouses.
New build apartments in complexes – purchase directly from the developer with a warranty
During the crisis, Spanish and international property developers in Mallorca constructed very little new housing as they feared the risk that it would stand empty. For this reason, mainly secondhand apartments were sold during these years. For some years now, Mallorca has been experiencing a great deal of activity in the construction trade, and very high-quality Mediterranean or modern new-build apartments are being developed in facilities that are usually called residences. The advantages of buying a new apartment are obvious: On the one hand, these apartments are built to the latest technical standards, on the other hand, they have long-term developer guarantees – unlike second-hand apartments, which are sold “bought as seen”. Also, when buying a new apartment on Mallorca, Minkner & Partner is the first stop for you. Property developers usually do not have access to international interested parties and the media. They often do not speak the language of interested parties. That’s why the developers are always working with selected real estate agents to moderate the contract negotiations. If you are interested in buying a new build apartment in a complex on Mallorca, then you can be confident that Minkner & Partner is the correct real estate agent for you.
