Commenting on the report, Novi Property Mallorca's David Novi explained"while the figures in many respects confirm the underlying strengths of the fundamentals underpinning theMallorca property market, I also believe that Mallorca prices have not fully adjusted to the realities of the current economic climate".

Expanding further, David added "at Novi Property Mallorca we have long mantained that the fundamentals of the Mallorca property market (relating to supply and demand) are sound and will ensure that some of the downside pressures are checked when compared with the situation on mainland Spain. Prices are and will continue to fall but not as much as many parts of mainland Spain".

Furthermorehe explained"we have also observed that owners in Mallorca have probably held out longer than in other areas of the country before readjusting their expectionsrelating to the values of their homes and this also explains why the fall in prices in Mallorca is lower than the national average. The short term outlook is, we believe, for further price falls, although with this we are also seeing the type of buying opportunities that come in a falling market"
