Mallorca: The Best Place to Telework and Buy a Home

Telework is a reality and doing it from Mallorca is a certainty. Covid-19 pandemic has completely changed many aspects of our lives and in particular the way we work, especially for those people who used to do office work. One only has to look at data from the INE and the Bank of Spain to realise that in 2019 only 4.8% of workers worked from home and that by 2020 this number had risen to 80%.

This great change has also influenced the purchase and sale of real estate, so much so that housing is now purchased with a 360º vision of home and office. For this reason, the teleworker prefers to opt for a home with more space, especially outdoors, preferably located in places that offer a good climate all year round, with optimal WiFi connectivity and close to a more natural environment. With these data in mind, from Balear Real Estate, we can say without a doubt that Mallorca is the perfect destination if you can work from home and want to get away from the stress of the city.

The right home for teleworking

A home suitable for teleworking should have 4 basic features:

  • Provide a comfortable and private indoor space for all family members working or studying from home in order to maintain concentration.
  • Be located in a quiet environment or have good sound insulation so as not to be continually disturbed.
  • Good internet coverage from the main telephone companies so that you can take advantage of a high-speed WiFi connection without having service cuts.
  • Generous outdoor space to be able to be outdoors during breaks and recover.

What you should consider

If you are thinking of moving to Mallorca, the first thing to do is to decide whether or not you want to live in a city. If the answer is yes, then Palma de Mallorca is your best bet. If the answer is no, then head for a coastal urbanisation or a village in the Serra de Tramuntana. We recommend that your new home in Mallorca is close to the main services such as pharmacy, supermarket, banks and hospital.

You should also take into account that the property should not be too close to the airport or a busy road. For example, having the noise of planes taking off and landing at the airport is not pleasant, especially during the tourist season.

Mallorca, a great choice if you telework.

If you work remotely and are looking for a place to live, Mallorca is the perfect destination. Its Mediterranean climate, easy connections to other European countries, white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters, plus a city that offers many services, are the main reason why many national and international people choose it to live and telework.
