The algarve´s speculative buying spree of off-plan properties is now levelling off as 'get rich quick' investors have moved on to cheaper, less developed and more risky localities such as Bulgaria, Croatia and Turkey. Algrave and its environs now abound with comfortable, well-built villas and luxurious apartments in exclusive residential areas, while the level of services, from restaurants, shops and nightlife to medical, professional and educational options continue to grow and mature, all helping to make this part of Portugal the number one choice for smart investors and lifestyle buyers alike.
Most investors know that with just a little 'inside knowledge'; it's still possible to produce well above average returns, with no risk to their equity on the Algarve.
Exclusive Estates specializes in identifying and qualifying the very best developments which are ideally positioned to benefit from the Off-Plan model. We only seek developments that offer sea or mountain views or are golf course fronting in order to maximize the potential property values. Exclusive Estates and our suggested legal firms insist on full bank guarantees from the developers to protect your equity.
Your property rises in value as a result of being initially purchased below its true market value in the early stages of the development's life cycle. During construction, the developer raises the price of the properties to reflect their true market value. This process is explained in detail in the following pages.
We also provide a clear breakdown of additional costs to consider, as well as a brief overview of why investing in the algarve and other areas of Portugal makes excellent sense and how we help serious investors find the most promising development projects.
