Property in Ibiza
There are many options when it comes to choosing a home in Ibiza.
There are many “key ready” properties for sale all over the island. In the villages, cities, close to the beach or in the country side. The best value is often to buy a property that you see a potential in and then do a little renovation.
You can also build your own villa. In this case it is important to make sure that there is already a building license or be prepared to wait up to several years to start building. Many people have with success used the services of renowned local architects who have designed state-of-the-art luxury villas combining modern style with the local influence.
Finding older fincas or farm houses in the country side and restoring them is also extremely popular.
