Are you looking to buy a nice property in the sun? Then it must come with a swimming pool, right?
When buying a second home many people are looking for that nice holiday feel: Palm trees, beach, cocktails by the pool… as well as peace and quiet, where you can just relax and unwind.
It all depends on your budget…
…you might think. But hold on. Of course, if you have the money you go for the full package: the best real estate in the best location. But only very few people are in that position.
If you are like most, you will probably invest some time on research to get the best bargain. By making some research in Portugal we found out that the local buyers are very different from foreign buyers. For example: A house in in a remote village does not look very appealing for locals, they must do a lot of travelling to go to work, bring the kids to school or to make shop.
Foreign buyers on the other hand love to be in a quiet spot where they can totally relax and forget their busy lives back home.
For foreign buyers this can mean cheaper deals if they look in remote areas.
For real estate agents this means more clients if they offer those properties specifically to foreign clients.
Now, but what about the swimming pool?
On our website you can search only for houses with swimming pool. Just hit the “show more filter criteria” link and you can tick the swimming pool box under extras. You can sort the results to see the cheapest first. This will give you an idea of what is available.
You can just use this link, too:
If there is nothing that you like, don´t give up, good deals go fast! You can create a search alert (yes, including the swimming pool) to be the first to be informed when the next comes up.
And remember, you can always look at real estate without swimming pool that have a good size land and add one yourself. Depending on local prices it might be cheaper than you thought.
