He also noted that by the end of 2010 it is planned to sell 4,000 new homes. Thus, the volume of unsold housing will be reduced to 2000 objects (34% of the total). Therefore, in the second half of next year may increase the demand for new homes that will revive the construction sector.
He also said that prices of homes on the island have reached the "bottom". Mr. Oliver has warned developers that they can not remain on the roar, if they cut prices even more. According to him, in mainland Spain, prices fell harder, because the selling pressure is much greater and the banks get rid of the unpaid mortgage houses, play a huge role in the market. Balearic property developers, by contrast, maintain a high level of prices, and nobody expected them serious fall.
