Ibiza property: CE International Real Estate Service – The future’s so bright
The future can never be predicted but things are, as they say, so bright you have to wear shades. The crisis is finished, prices have leapt, and Ibiza is changing… for the better. At the higher end of the spectrum, luxury boutique and five-star hotel operators plus numerous exclusive housing projects are budding all across the island and island property specialists CE International Real Estate Services are perfectly positioned in the heart of all the action.
Right now, there are more high-end clients within the property market looking for that perfect villa than ever before. “It’s a seller’s market. Prices have gone up from 25-percent to 40-percent,” says CE International Real Estate Services founder Christina van Ederen. “Big investors are coming to the island looking for a way to maintain their privacy in a location that is beautiful and enjoyable.” Premium homes and plots are the fastest moving sector right now island wide. The tastes of this demographic range from restored luxury farmhouses to sprawling contemporary villas or penthouse apartments suited to entertaining.
“Exclusivity is what you can find here,” says Christina. “The homes in Ibiza are stunning. You can’t live like this anywhere else.” Breath-taking beaches, incredible sunsets, a jet set lifestyle, spectacular nature, a high-end gastronomy scene, spiritual and wellness connections, cosmopolitan nightlife and the star attraction, 300 days of sunshine per year make Ibiza a highly desirable home base and the pages of the CE International Real Estate Services website are resplendent with gorgeous, luxury homes. Now is the time to take advantage of the bubbling atmosphere.
In addition to running CE International Real Estate, Christina is also a partner in Famosa Real Estate; an all-new agency created, in conjunction with her investment partner Julia Flemmerer, with the aim of matching exceptional properties with the high expectations of their clients. When certain levels of luxury home weren’t found on the market, they began developing – from concept through to completion, drawing on their extensive property knowledge and many years spent as island residents with exclusive tastes. The best of both worlds. Read more about this exciting new agency here.
The Balearic Islands are one of the three top provinces registering the largest sales across the country in the last two years. Spain is considered the ninth most popular location for international property investment and the number of foreign investors continues to grow. Another interesting turn in the local market is an increased willingness to contemplate areas not always previously considered in the luxury market. The centre, south and east coasts have fetched impressive prices for some time and now buyers are looking further west and north to find development and investment opportunities. While some agencies limit themselves to a certain area, Christina and her team are out there, constantly assessing the lay of the land.
As a market leader in the high end of the Ibiza scene, CE International Real Estate Services have worked long and hard to get to where they are today. Their success is well-deserved and a result of Christina’s unwavering passion for property and unrivalled work ethic – qualities that are essential in a fast moving and tight market. Access to top properties and an extensive global client base means both buyers and sellers listing exclusively with the firm are afforded front row seats and quality service. Above all, Christina loves Ibiza and understands that beyond its glittering façade and world-famous reputation lies an authentic spirit she wants to share with her clients.
