A Whole New World
Real Estate in the Algarve is just different, it’s that simple! Compared to any other real estate market in the world, you will never find one as complicated nor as rewarding as the Algarve. First and foremost, you have some of the most exclusive properties with the most amazing features and benefits that are second to none. The weather is exceptional 365 days a year, from the lovely extended summer season when you can enjoy outdoor activities and the beaches to the mild autumn and winter months which lend well for golf, hiking and biking. The Portuguese people are delightful and willing to help you any way they can. The food is fresh, simple and well prepared. You have shopping, tons of restaurants, golf courses, beaches and activities to choose from for daily entertainment. There are banks, grocery stores, pastry shops and all of the simple amenities that you need for your day to day living and, on most days, the sun! While the rest of Europe is struggling with snow or high winds or rain we are sitting in the sunshine and enjoying a lovely mild day.
There are real estate offices on every street corner and guess what? They are all advertising the same properties in and out of the same resorts! What’s the difference? Again, a very simple answer, the people. Just as there is no market like the Algarve there is no service like that you will receive with Lifestyles Luxury Property Selection. It’s our job to make sure you are enjoying your house hunt and finding the right property for you and your lifestyle.
Regarding the purchase of a property, you have so many decisions to make, including but not limited to tax status, offshore versus onshore purchase, Portuguese registered companies, lawyers, financial advisers, solicitors, and then of course, the ever important real estate broker. The process can be confusing and stressful when it should be exciting, positive and fun. It is important to do your homework and select the right team for your personal needs. You can never be too informed and the broker you select should have a selection of well educated professionals that can assist and guide you in your purchase. You also have many choices regarding location such as in a resort, near a resort, which resort, just outside a resort, countryside, city, seclusion, and the list goes on. Select a broker that really knows the area and can explain your options, discuss the running costs and the differences in resort and resort amenities, any security concerns and the best location based on what you enjoy doing during your holidays.
