Selling real estate in an area as popular as the Algarve during the summer period can be a little tricky. Normally between mid-June and mid-September most properties are occupied and viewings can be difficult to arrange. However, the end of summer signals the start of the autumn selling period and, as most agents will testify, a return to more tolerable working temperatures. Historically it is also the time of year when more home owners decide now is the time to sell. With the recent weakening of the pound many British second-home owners can afford to sell properties at a much lower Euro rate and still come out on top. With euro to sterling currently at around €1.12, it is a good time for British homeowners who are looking to sell. Fortunately...

Having been crowned the champions of Europe in the 2016 UEFA European Championship and now having just won the Eurovision Song Contest in front of a television audience of over 200 million people from around the world, there is a feeling of pride in Portugal.

Acquiring the services of a long established and vastly experienced local real estate agent is vital. Good agencies are very pro-active in trying to sell your property and it takes a lot more than just uploading it onto one of the many property portals and sitting and waiting for an email enquiry to arrive.

Algarve property market regains its buoyancy in 2017

Helen Mamerow 10/03/2017 14:58:16

As we predicted the beginning of 2017 has clearly demonstrated that the desire to invest in property in the Algarve continues to go from strength to strength. So far this year we have already brokered several property sales between a real varied mix of nationalities looking to invest in various property types. Predominantly but not exclusively, these buyers are coming from Central and Northern Europe – including from Sweden, Holland, Germany, Belgium, France, the UK and Switzerland. Combine these sales with the potential property purchasers that have already pre-booked property visits with us in the coming months and our optimism for yet another successful year appears well founded. Although difficult to see if you are not directly...
