Spring is here, the sun is out and its perfect weather to look for your Holiday/Retirement property in the Algarve.
Some good tips on what to do before contacting any agents to find that perfect property are, look at the areas you are interested, use google research and google earth to make sure you are happy with what the area can offer, then, come for a visit, you may decide after coming that you don’t actually like the area you are looking at and you will need to start again.
Once you are happy and have chosen the perfect area then contact an agent, over here quite often agents work together so there is no need to register with everyone, and a word of advice, when using sites like Greenacres only inquire if you are really interested in the property as it pre registers you with that particular agent, it can get a little messy if you are registered with lots of agents showing the same property. Find yourself an recommended lawyer who can help with all the legal stuff.
