Algarve Senior Living’s range of options now includes a variety of apartments, townhouses, cottages and villas located across the Algarve. Our focussed and personalised search capability has also meant that we have located investment and even refurbishment opportunities, for those who intend to remain active in their senior years in the sun. Portugal Senior Living’s inventory extends to the greater Lisbon area and other areas of the country such as the Silver Coast.
We are not a real estate listing site, so a personalised list is only made available to customers who enquire directly. Our short-lists are typically made up of the best selection of properties, matching your individual needs, covering a range of options from property owners, developers and our partner network. We save you time and money by acting as a knowledgeable, personalised search engine!
However, experience has shown us that in two situations it makes more sense for us to undertake work on behalf of the client, in other words, by acting as the customer’s representative and trusted advisor:
- If you are not certain or sufficiently knowledgeable regarding where you prefer to be based, or where to find your ideal home to buy or rent – we typically recommend a Discovery Tour in these situations, or
- If you want an independent party to represent you as a buyer and to defend your interests. In this case we GUARANTEE (contractually) that we will save you money on your purchase, in exchange for our appointment as a buyer broker,
Our extensive range of partnerships with owners, developers and local agents provides customers with a one-stop solution for their long-stay or permanent retirement needs. Unlike franchised real estate agency networks, which tend to want to sell only their own listings or be adverse to showing you rentals, and specialist agencies who know an area well but do not have the bandwidth to move outside it in an independent way, or having to contact different companies for sales and rentals in the same town, we offer true independence and choice:
- If you are uncertain about whether to rent or buy, we can organise options in both categories
- Clients know they get the best picks in each region
- Each regional partner will present the best options, not only because they want to showcase the best they have, but because we vet the proposals before we present a short-list
- You do not have to spend hours trawling the internet for local agents and their product
- You are only presented with properties which really exist and not those which have been sold or taken off the market
- You protect yourself and your personal data from being harangued for years by all the agents to whom you have provided your contact details
- If you combine your search with a Discovery Tour, which we recommend if you are not certain of exactly where you wish to buy, then you will be given very specific, contextual insights by an experienced local person, helping you not only to decide about a property but also what it would be like to live or stay in a specific town or neighbourhood
