Tips, data and installers to make your home more “eco friendly”

Tips, data and installers to make your home more “eco friendly”

“Solar energy in Ibiza” equals “Secure investment, revaluation and profit.”

Ibiza has gone from 50 photovoltaic installations in 2018 to 528 installations in 2022, that’s an increase of +956%. And why? Because renewable energies are very profitable in Ibiza. There is an initiative called “Ibiza Energy Start Up” that aims to promote renewable energy projects on the island and make them attractive to investors through a series of incentives that include tax exemptions and other benefits such as access to loans or grants from public institutions such as the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

We must not forget the increase in electricity prices in Spain this year, which will mean one of the most expensive winters in a long time. The increase in the CPI in the Balearics is mainly linked to the rise in the cost of electricity, gas and other fuels, which have risen by 55.5%, followed by accommodation services, which have risen by 32.5%, and package holidays, which have risen by 20.4%. Isn’t that reason enough to start thinking about installing solar panels on your home?

The renewable energy sector has grown rapidly in recent years and is becoming increasingly important as a source of energy for the population. In Spain, this sector has grown from almost nothing to more than 10% of all electricity generation in less than 20 years.

Reasons in favour of solar energy in Ibiza.

– Installing solar panels is an excellent way to save money and reduce the environmental footprint.

– There is an initial outlay, but it is a medium-term investment.

– The payback period has been reduced from 6-8 years to 3-5 years.

– Although it is a cost that can be seen as high, it is a marginal price compared to the cost of a property.

– You will create enough electricity to rely on the concept of self-consumption.

– The revaluation is incredibly high, it increases the value of a property.

– There are a multitude of Balearic government subsidies from which you can benefit.

By breaking down barriers, solar energy is more accessible than ever.

As mentioned above, in Ibiza alone 478 installations have been made in less than 4 years; this is no coincidence, it is the result of technology advancing by leaps and bounds and this generates huge savings in costs and installation time.

Let’s talk about the main barriers when deciding on this renewable energy:

Price

We have seen a dramatic change in the cost of solar panels, but that’s not all. The price of the complete installation of solar panels and all the necessary accessories has changed a lot in recent years thanks to technological advances.

The main reason is that new materials and techniques have been developed, making it possible to create panels that produce more energy per square metre and last longer. In addition, there are now cheaper options on the market than ever before, making it possible to invest in solar panels without breaking the budget or having to worry about how much the installation will cost.

The price has been able to be halved in the last 2 years, so that today a complete installation can be around €7,000 – €15,000 depending on the needs of the property.

Complexity

Once upon a time, the installation of solar panels was the exclusive domain of technicians with years of experience in the field. Today, however, it is easier than ever, especially if you live in Ibiza.

As we all know, Ibiza is an island full of sun-drenched beaches and beautiful scenery. But did you also know that it is an island with a growing population that is increasingly concerned about its future? That’s why many people are turning to solar energy as a way to reduce their carbon footprint and generate clean energy.

Now there’s no need to wait for installation teams or spend hours researching companies before choosing a supplier – we’ve done all the hard work for you! In the following list we recommend some providers of this service located on the island of Ibiza:

Solsulet – 722 53 23 93
https://www.solsulet.com/
Camino cuatro cantos POL. 22198, Local 4, 07840 Puig d’en Valls, Balearic Islands
Servicios Palau SL – 971 31 52 15
https://serviciospalau.es/
Carrer del Romaní, 07819 Nuestra Señora de Jesús, Illes Balears

The process to install solar panels on your house includes the application for permits, installation and legalisation of the photovoltaic system, which usually takes between 2 and 3 months, depending on the size of your house.

Benefit from subsidies and save.

The government has decided to grant subsidies for the purchase of panels and maintenance, as well as incentives for the sale and use of the electricity generated by these panels. This decision is intended to encourage more people to install solar panels on their homes or businesses, as well as to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

You can find more information for this grant at this link.

The process is very simple, all you have to do is sign up for the programme, wait for them to analyse your proposal and then they will give you back a percentage of your investment depending on the parameters and requirements they have established.

As long as your renovation includes in its budget a percentage destined to the improvement of energy efficiency, including the complete installation of solar panels, you will be eligible for the cancellation of the VAT of the entire renovation work of the property. This can be a very important saving when investing in a property, both because it is money that you stop paying, and because the property will increase in value and the return on investment will be infinitely faster.

Recommendations and conclusions.

We all know that solar energy is the future, and we all know that there are certain barriers that slow us down when we think about installing this technology. What are we waiting for? It has been demonstrated that with the passage of time and the advancement of technology this no longer poses any risk. In addition, we have the incentive of the increase in the price of electricity and the strong ecological footprint that this implies.

From RE/MAX Isla Blanca we want to encourage you, as we find benefits not only for the owners and investors who make the decision to make the installation and the self-consumption that this generates; we see a benefit for everyone at the level of society.

This blog has been possible due to the help of our agent Manuel Castellano Quiroga.

Share your home on the internet 

Now you are all set! With one click, you can share your offer with all the world! So don’t hesitate to do it.

Apartments in Ibiza town: tips for choosing the ideal one

Apartments in Ibiza town: tips for choosing the ideal one

When we buy a flat, our ultimate satisfaction depends on how much attention we pay to our buying strategy.

It is common for people to venture into buying a property with great enthusiasm, but after the complications that can (and will) arise, the experience becomes stressful. So what to consider when buying a flat in Ibiza Town? At RE/MAX Isla Blanca we have decided to publish some great and easy to put into practice tips for buying a flat in Ibiza.

1. CALCULATE YOUR REAL BUDGET

Always remember that the price of a property can never exceed the sum of the amount of your mortgage loan plus the savings you specified for it. This is an obvious message, but we have noticed that when many people buy flats in Ibiza Town, they end up exceeding this amount because they are deluded by the illusion of a flat that meets all their expectations.

Now, how much mortgage do you have to ask for? It is important to note that when you buy a flat in Ibiza, do not exceed 40% of your monthly income. Add to this the additional costs which can mean paying an additional 8% to 12% of the sale price of the property. Up to 40% of your monthly income will be the “ideal monthly payment” for your mortgage.

In our opinion, the first tip for buying a flat in Ibiza is this, because living comfortably will allow you to make the most of your investment.

2. ADDITIONAL COSTS

In general, the total cost of buying a property in Ibiza can range between 8% and 12% of the purchase price, including the following:

– Taxes: ITP 8-11% or 10% VAT + 1.5% written court action fee.

– Mortgage cost: 0% (from the new mortgage law) or 0,5% of the mortgage loan amount (if you hire a mortgage broker).

– Lawyer/consultant fee: 1%.

– Notary and land registry fees: 0.1 % – 0.5 % (or less)

– Bank charges: various

The exact numbers and variations can be found in our buyer’s guide.

3. CHOOSE THE AREA WITH COMPELLING REASONS

The city is widely known for its World Heritage Site, divided into Dalt Vila (Old Town) and the modern extension of Eixample. In addition, Ibiza has two popular beaches, Talamanca and Figueretas, just a few minutes’ drive from the VIP area of Marina Botafoch, which brings together luxury frontline flats and penthouses. As you can see, Ibiza Town has countless areas and neighbourhoods in which to live, but there are some additional factors to consider:

Emotional factors (closeness to parents, relatives, friends, “lifelong” neighbourhood…) and objective factors (price of the area, transport, parking, green areas, shopping centres, city services…) come into play when choosing an area to live in.

Both are important and must be weighed up when buying a flat in Ibiza.

As for the objective criteria, you should evaluate the following:

– Access to your workplace and the transport available in the area. This can save a lot of time and money.

– Shops, food services and entertainment facilities.

– Health services.

– Schools, colleges and kindergartens.

– Easy area to park a vehicle.

– Recreational areas, outdoor activities and sports facilities.

4. PREPARE THE NECESSARY DOCUMENTATION

When buying a property in Ibiza, the following documents are required before signing the title deeds:

– Original DNI or passport

– Original NIE/TIE (common foreigner identification number and tax identification number)

– Bank cheque or proof of bank transfer. According to payment conditions. According to payment conditions.

– Spanish bank account details

– Receipt of payment already made.

5. TO BE ASSISTED BY A REAL ESTATE AGENCY

Information about the real estate market is readily available nowadays as people are better equipped to find data and compare.

If you can invest enough time for such an important investment, if you are choosing the most reliable sources of information, if your negotiation skills are fine-tuned, if you have the right tools and professional training to deal with each situation on your own, you can choose to buy the property outright.

If your answers to these questions are: “No, the truth is that I can’t dedicate the necessary time to buy a flat in Ibiza”, “I don’t know where to get real information about the market”… then we recommend that you do not hesitate to seek professional help.

At RE/MAX Isla Blanca we will never close ourselves to a free consultancy, so… Take advantage of it! We can advise you and help you find the ideal property in Ibiza town. We can assure you that with us you will save time and money, we are the best option on the island.

Our telephone number is +34 871 51 50 15, we are waiting for your call.

Houses with swimming pool in Ibiza: best tips for its maintenance

Houses with swimming pool in Ibiza: best tips for its maintenance

At RE/MAX Isla Blanca we know how important it can be to have a swimming pool in your home, especially if we are talking about Ibiza, where in many months of the year the temperatures are ideal to enjoy a refreshing swim in your private pool, or to keep fit doing swimming activities.

But, you may ask yourself, is it easy to keep a pool in Ibiza in perfect condition? How much of my personal time will I spend looking after it?

In this blog we want to help you and show you possible solutions. On the one hand, if you decide to take care of the pool yourself, we will show you the right concepts and tips to keep it in perfect condition; on the other hand, if you do not have time to maintain it or need help when you are away from your pool, at the end of this blog we will show list specialists on the island for the maintenance of your pool in Ibiza.

  • I WANT TO TAKE CARE OF MY POOL MYSELF.

For this reason, we want to show you the best tips for the maintenance of your pool, because if you have a pool in your home and you do not take care of it, it can become very unhealthy for you and your family because it can become a focus of bacteria and fungi. With the following concepts you will be able to enjoy a totally clean and safe pool:

1. Get the basic pool care tools.

Here is a list of materials and tools that you can use as a shopping list:

• Leaf catcher.

• Chlorine and pH test kit.

• Anti-algae.

• Chlorine.

• Flocculant.

• pH increaser and pH reducer.

2. Clean the walls and bottom of your pool.

This is one of the main steps before refilling the pool, but it is also important to clean the walls and bottom every 15-25 days to avoid debris or algae.

3. Use the leaf catcher daily.

Collect any dirt and leaves that may have fallen on the surface of your pool every day. By doing this you will be able to keep insects at bay and it is very effective when it comes to enjoying your pool without any problems.

4. Regulates the pH value of the water.

In addition to cleaning the water, another daily task is to measure the pH and chlorine levels thanks to the kit mentioned above. Immerse it in your pool water and check the levels it shows you:

• The correct pH level should be between 7.2 and 7.6.

• The chlorine level should be between 0.5 and 1 parts per million in the water.

To achieve these levels, you can use products such as pH increaser, pH reducer, or slow/fast acting chlorine tablets.

5. Use anti-algae weekly and flocculant every two weeks.

In order to protect the transparent colour of the water, use the anti-algae agent weekly by pouring the liquid into the water of your pool, the quantity varies depending on the volume of water in your pool.

In addition, to prevent the water from becoming cloudy, use flocculant every 10-15 days.

6. Keep the filter clean.

Try to keep clean the main motor that makes your pool look perfect. The filter and its filter is an essential part of pool maintenance, so check monthly that everything is in excellent condition.

We hope these tips have helped you, and that you can enjoy your pool with your family for as long as possible!

  • I NEED TO HIRE A PROFESSIONAL.

If you are away from your pool and can’t maintain it yourself once a week, you could consider hiring a professional to come regularly to maintain your pool. Prices depend on the location, frequency and size of the pool, but are usually in the region of €60 – €120 per month.

Consumption of household appliances in a house

Consumption of household appliances in a house

The Energy Efficiency label (EEE) that measures the scale of the consumption of an electrical appliance, has changed since last March 1, 2021, and with this, the categories A +++, A ++ and A + will no longer exist.

Consequently, appliances that were labeled A +++ will move to category C, while products currently marked with the A + label will change to yellow and the letter “D”.

This shows that the new system is much stricter, but it does not mean that these appliances have deteriorated, what it means is that achieving the maximum score is now much stricter and only available to very few today. This is expected to improve in the coming years.

From the European Commission it was proposed to review, optimize and simplify the labeling returning to the labels that go from “A” to “G”. Since March of this year, this labeling is mandatory only for dryers, refrigerators, dishwashers and washing machines and will gradually be extended to other appliances.

Here are the devices that currently consume the most:

1.- Refrigerator

It never disconnects, so it is the one that consumes the most. According to Red Eléctrica de España (REE), the refrigerator represents 14% of the total energy in the home, which translates into an annual cost of € 26.02.

2.- TV

We spend too much time in front of this device, according to Statista data, in 2020 we Spaniards spent an average of 4 hours watching television, and this reaches an energy consumption of up to 10%. Not leaving it on standby when not in use is the most effective measure to save some energy.

3.- Washing machine

A family of four that puts four washing machines a week on average will be facing an annual expense of € 38.92 for using this appliance. The most interesting thing is that 80% of the expense of the washing machine occurs when heating the water, which is why it is so important to wash clothes at a low temperature to control this consumption

4.- Dryer

The dryer outperforms the washing machine in consumption. If on average a family puts four dryers a week, they will pay around € 46.95 per year. The advice to reduce the consumption of this appliance is that the clothes arrive as less wet as possible, that is, spin well in the washing machine.

5.- Oven

It is not lacking in almost any home, but its consumption reaches up to € 22.47 per year since heat generation is what consumes the most electricity in an appliance. Therefore, the trick to save is to take good advantage of the residual heat and turn off the oven during the last minutes of cooking a dish and avoid opening the door while it works so that no heat comes out.

6.- Dishwasher

History repeats itself, what makes the dishwasher use more energy is heating the water. A family with four members will spend around € 23.63 per year. The saving tips in this case are to use the ECO program that all dishwashers have today, clean filters and do proper maintenance.

7.- Small appliances

All the small appliances that generate heat, such as the microwave, the coffee maker, the vacuum cleaner or the iron are those that produce the most consumption. These small electrical appliances, according to RED ELÉCTRICA DE ESPAÑA, represent 27% of the total energy expenditure of a home.

THE NEED TO CARRY OUT A REAL ESTATE APPRAISAL

THE NEED TO CARRY OUT A REAL ESTATE APPRAISAL

From the moment you decide to put your house up for sale, there are a series of steps that you must follow, but if there is a necessary first action that you must do and we know a lot about this, it is to carry out an Appraisal.

Appraising your house is nothing more than an evaluation to determine its real value, to know how much we can sell it for. This appraisal must be carried out by a qualified professional, we have a professional team that is in charge of doing it, issuing a document, in order to fix the value of your home, following established criteria.

It is valid for six months and a cost that must be borne by the customer, which is usually around € 400 approximately.

There are several reasons apart from the purchase and sale, to carry out an appraisal, for example:

· Commercial negotiations

Marital division and inheritances

Dissolution or distribution of businesses

Budgets

Granting of mortgages

Having this document will allow the bank to establish the amount that they will be able to finance a potential buyer, although normally it does not usually exceed 80% of the appraisal value.

To carry out a fair appraisal, there are several stipulated and regulated factors on which the appraiser must rely.

These factors are common to all homes, regardless of the appraiser who carries them out, and are as follows:

-The location of the house will allow us to know the market value of the area.

Carry out a study of the area, evaluating the schools that are nearby, if public transport arrives, nearby hospitals, commercial premises … in our case, the properties we have.

-The state in which the house is located.

Analyze if there is any damage to the structure, any damage to the construction materials, maintenance and their age (the older, the lower the value).

-The size.

The total area, the distribution, the number of rooms and bathrooms, as well as the rooms available must be taken into account. We have homes of all sizes.

-Energy efficiency.

Based on the official energy certificate that the house has, the price to be registered is higher or lower. The higher the energy certification, the higher the valuation you will get.

Therefore, if you are thinking of selling your house, you should come and we will advise you on everything that concerns the appraisal, our professionals will visit your house, make a plan and take pictures of it, we will verify that the registry property is correct and that There is no urban illegality, to finally put a real price on your home.

RENT YOUR HOUSE SAFELY

RENT YOUR HOUSE SAFELY

If you are the owner of a home, which is unoccupied, surely you have considered on many occasions (and if not, it is time) to get an extra return. When you have finally decided to rent that house that you have empty, we know that many fears arise about what will happen if the tenant does not pay me, if there are damages in the house, if there is any breach of the contract … It is normal that generate those doubts and fears, because nowadays, many cases are heard in which the rent does not go as the owner would have wanted.

Therefore, we are going to guide you so that the rental of your home is done in a safe and quiet way.

First of all, you have to establish what is the starting price that you want to put on your home. You must do a study to find out what situation the real estate market is in for rent. We propose you to make a comparison of the prices in homes similar to yours and in the area in which it is located, in order to offer a price as adjusted as possible, to be able to compete with the rest of properties that are in the same situation as yours. A reasonable price makes it more attractive and increases the likelihood that your house will be rented.

The next thing is, pay close attention to who you want to rent your house. You will have to make a careful selection of the tenant, to avoid future problems. Do not hesitate to request all the possible data of the person concerned, to check their solvency, even if necessary, do some research on them to make sure they are the correct person. To do this, you must ask for the DNI and a work contract or payroll, to see their job stability. You can request, for your peace of mind, additional guarantees, such as, for example, in addition to a deposit, claim one or two monthly payments in advance and even a guarantee, personal (that another person guarantees the tenant’s payments) or bank (that a financial institution, respond to possible outstanding debts). Of course, we can assure you that the perfect tenant does not exist, you must take it into account.

Another aspect to assess to guarantee your peace of mind is that the tenant takes out insurance for non-payments or damage to the home, thus covering any unforeseen event that may arise during the duration of the rental contract.

We advise you to carry out the entire deal, face to face, so you can know first-hand what that interested person is like and begin to create a relationship between tenant and owner, that for the good of both, it lasts over time. For that, you must also respond as a landlord, to all the obligations that correspond to you, because having a happy tenant will make them more careful and responsible.

Make sure that the house is in perfect condition and make the tenant understand that, as far as possible, it remains as you have left it, if it happens that they have to leave your home, at the end of the contract.

Finally, you must write a good contract, which clearly states the rental conditions, from the price to the duration, including the responsibilities that correspond to both parties and their possible consequences in the event of non-compliance. Even do an inventory and take pictures of how the house is before the rental, to compare it when the tenant leaves.

We recommend that you put yourself in the hands of professionals like us, to carry out all these procedures. We will advise and manage the entire process in a personalized way, listening to your needs and treating the possible tenant, in a close way. Drafting the contract so that both parties benefit and reach a satisfactory agreement that is long-lasting, for the good of both.

Do not hesitate and visit us. I waited for you

How to prevent heat from escaping from inside your home.

How to prevent heat from escaping from inside your home.

We are cold and we all like to have a warm environment inside our homes.

But from RE / MAX ISLA BLANCA in Ibiza, we know that for this to be possible, we must prevent the heat from escaping from home.

In addition to the warmth, it is also convenient to pay attention to the energy and economic savings that you will not waste the heat you have inside the house.

At RE / MAX ISLA BLANCA in Ibiza we know different ways to prevent the heat from escaping from home and it is that with a few simple acts, you will see how you achieve it.

· A good resource is to place rugs in different rooms of the house. Something that may seem so insignificant, will bring a warm touch to your home, making it not lose temperature through the floor, since with poor insulation between 5% and 10% of heat can escape. The model, the colour and the material will depend on your tastes.

· If you need to paint your house, you can opt for thermal paint, capable of forming a layer of insulation that will allow you to save on heating.

· From RE / MAX ISLA BLANCA in Ibiza we also recommend insulating your walls using corks and natural resins, which, in addition to the cold, isolate acoustically. Another option in terms of walls is to install a wooden baseboard, which will prevent the temperature from going through the walls, which is usually around 20% heat.

We move on to textiles. As with rugs, a good sofa cover will make the feeling of being warmer even more noticeable. To this must be added having a pair of sofa blankets on hand that allows you to cover yourself at any given moment. As for the bedrooms, for you to notice a warm atmosphere, you should use warm sheets and use a duvet, which will prevent you from losing the feeling of heat that it gives you while you sleep.

From RE / MAX ISLA BLANCA in Ibiza we recommend you not to forget the windows, one of the main escape routes from the heat. A bad choice of both the windows and the glass will make you lose between 25% and 30% of the heat, so you should choose PVC windows that are the ones that protect the most from the cold and possibly they are hinged, since that its closure is more hermetic than the slides.

In addition, add a thick glass that lets in the outside heat and prevents a temperature leak.

Finally, good curtains to dress these windows will considerably reduce heat loss.

If you follow these tips that we have given you from RE / MAX ISLA BLANCA in Ibiza, you can enjoy total warmth throughout the cold season.
