SeaToSky Homes - helping buyers find their ideal property across the regionAt SeaToSky Homes we focus on the areas of Silves, Lagoa and Lagos through to the west coast of the Algarve. Juliet, Tania and Natasha work together as a team to help buyers find their ideal property across the region. Together we have well over 20 years experience in the local property market.

Natasha focuses on the western Algarve, particularly the Lagos to Sagres region, which features the quaint fishing villages of Luz, Burgau and Salema, plus the stunning coastal area of the Costa Vincentina Natural Park with its pristine beaches and wild beauty.

Golden sunshine and golden visas draw wealthy foreigners from far and wide to Portuguese property marketWith its economy rebounding and property prices on the up, Portugal is setting about building a future that guards against the economic vulnerabilities of the past.

One method of doing so has been to court wealthy foreigners by promoting the attractions of property ownership in Portugal and the Portuguese lifestyle, as well as the Iberian nation's value as an entry point into the Schengen Area.

New versus old – which foreign property is right for you?As the summer comes to a close, some people will still be thinking longingly about their holidays and wondering whether to buy a property abroad.

If you do decide to purchase, there are some big decisions to make, one of which is whether to buy a new or old property.

Overseas property expert, Simon Conn, who has more than 35 years’ experience in the market, said: “A client has two choices. Either they buy a property which is already built and they can see exactly what they are getting, or they buy it off plan, often as part of a community with all the promise of what will also be built.

A 'technology center for business innovation' to including shops, a wellness centre and leisure facilities, situated near the Via do Infante motorway’s Loulé junction, certainly was the largest real estate investment launched at the show.
