Where to Start

Investing in property is a big decision investing in property abroad is a huge decision, and it's important that you choose to make such a purchase through a trusted local agency that has your best interests at heart. At Golden Triangle Real Estate, we not only have the knowledge of buying & selling property - we know the Golden Triangle, Algarve area through and through and can offer you as much assistance as you need.

The founders of Golden Triangle Real Estate initially bought their first apartment in Vale do Lobo in 2006 as a holiday home whilst they still lived in the UK. They moved to the Algarve with their 3 children in 2008 and have since bought a further 13 properties, set up a holiday rental business and a real estate business. They know everything you could ever wish to know about the area and the process of buying property in the Algarve. All of their experience and hands on expertise is available to you as a client of Golden Triangle Real Estate, ensuring you navigate the path of Portuguese property transactions with ease.

Once you have found that special property and are ready to become an Algarve property owner, we recommend that you work with an 'advogado' - a Portuguese solicitor - to represent you through all purchasing procedures (. Please take a look at our Contacts Directory page for our recommended advogados). There are several steps involved in the buying process and an advogado can help make the process much easier. To confirm your interest in the property, the price should be agreed and you will need to pay a reservation deposit so that the house is taken off the market...

Next, a “promissory contract” is drawn up citing all the terms and conditions of the sale. This is a legally binding agreement and protects both the buyer and vendor. At this stage a second deposit is payable on the property. The final step is the signing of the contract and the exchange of the deeds, done in the presence of a Portuguese notary to witness the process.

As we understand that the process can seem daunting (it really isn’t) we are with you each step of the way to ensure that everything runs smoothly and that you have all the information you require throughout the buying process.  All our experience and personal knowledge of the area is at your disposal to guarantee that buying property in the Algarve isn’t just a good business decision, but is also an enjoyable experience. Even after purchase, our experience in property rental and property management in the Golden Triangle can be of great benefit to you.

We are local experts. We have 16 years experience in the sale/rental of over 500 luxury villas and luxury apartments in the area - we know the market inside out.
